Last year I wrote a blog about priming ourselves for 2017 and got a lot of positive feedback, so I thought that I would continue an annual “What to Expect” blog providing some insights into what I feel intuitively for the year 2018, so that we can all get ready to live our highest, most vibrant selves.
I want us all to experience a miraculous, enriching year filled with many blessings!
On that note, here’s the word of the year that comes to mind for 2018 – INNOVATION.
Yes, you heard right! 2018 will be the year of creativity, and innovation.
We’ve seen this already happening with the rise of companies like Uber, Airbnb, Bitcoin etc. and it’s just not going to go away.
It’s not just some cycle friends, it’s a spiritual renaissance.
The former things have passed and we must adapt and welcome a new way of being.
This will require us all to galvanize our efforts in resourcefulness, ‘out of the box thinking’ and creativity during this Universal transition as the old, egoic structures, paradigms and traditions continue to be disrupted, dismantled and even disgraced.
Things are changing rapidly, which calls for courage and resilience more than ever before, an ability to be flexible and open as I anticipate the year to be frankly, challenging for many who hold fast to the old systems.
However, the beauty of it all is that we each have an opportunity to birth and create the reality that we wish to see by calling upon and awakening the spiritual faculties and abilities within.
By choosing to live in alignment with a high vibrational state of being, we can live in the frequency of love and oneness.
However, it does take work, consistency and a commitment, especially with one’s thoughts, energy and spiritual practice to shield oneself from some of the harsh, lower energies that percolate from all the fear and uncertainty.
The stronger your light, the more you’ll be able to ward them off.
I’m all for optimism, but also all for truth and mindful living.
Staying present and paying attention to ‘what is’ becomes critical as we prepare for future experiences.
Ask yourself the following “What has my experiences this year taught me?”
Then use the wisdom that you have acquired to make the necessary changes.
Life is a teacher and will always present divine assignments necessary for our soul’s evolution and expansion.
Here are my top 3 Tips for thriving during the year of 2018:
1. Keep your mind completely present.
Live in the present moment.
We are constantly creating in our minds. In order to change the trajectory of your life, you must keep your mind completely in the present moment as each moment is preparing you for the next future moment.
It truly is a privilege to be alive. Don’t waste a minute of it by dwelling in your misfortunes or mistakes of the past or living in the anxieties of the future. Both are an illusion, the only moment is Now.
The more you celebrate your life with deep appreciation and reverence in the now, is the more you set yourself up for wonderful experiences in your future.
Be full now.
2. Spiritual practice
This is the year to put your spiritual practice to daily use with the radical changes that are happening.
I’m a huge advocate of maintaining a spiritual practice that resonates with your truth and your path. For myself, daily prayer and meditation using the mantra of “Satnam” has worked wonders to give me mental and spiritual fortitude.
A daily, spiritual practice will strengthen and anchor you in the frequency of love and oneness so deeply that you can face whatever challenges come your way with grace.
How you respond to life can make all the difference to what shows up in your future. Yes, the “Law of Reciprocity” is very real, what you put out will come back.
Let’s bring on the good stuff!
3. Keep your vibes up!
Treat your energetic space like a temple by eating high vibrational whole foods that energize you and make you glow with vitality, meditate, meditate, meditate and engage in only high vibrational thoughts, interactions and activity.
This is not to say that you ignore your feelings, you must honor whatever shows up however, try your best not to dwell in them too long as they are only there to bring attention to any disharmony that exists within you for healing, not to unpack and live there.
Next year will be what you make it to be, let’s make it a year worth remembering.
I wish you all so much love, joy, peace and the most creative, exhilarating year ever!
