Create before you react. Listen before you talk. Fill up before you give. Believe before you receive. Get aligned before you take action. Choose yourself before you choose others. Say yes to your desire before you say no to your problems. – Andrea Balt
One of my most treasured rituals is to select my word for the year ahead. That’s why I love to take you through the same process so you can step into the new year with an expansive vision and intention. Hopefully, you embrace this tradition by creating a sacred space for yourself.
This past year we all experienced some kind of loss. 2020 has come with its fair share of uncertainty. While 2020 has been a year where our resilience has been tested, it was also a year of amazing opportunities for growth. I know it didn’t feel like it, but heavier times can provide a reflecting light for where you still are energetically stagnated. I feel it was the year to get back in touch with our inner power.
Creating your vision and choosing your word of the year can’t happen from a place of lack or worry
I believe women all around the world are struggling to answer their soul call, to follow their hearts and dreams mainly because they just don’t feel able to reach those goals and are afraid of the uncertainty. They don’t trust themselves and question their capabilities to undertake something new. They have doubts about their potential in stepping forward and spread their wings. They don’t believe is possible for them.
The truth is that there’s always going to be uncertainty, even in our happiest moments. No one knows what the next moment holds. Don’t put your dreams on hold and wait for the right circumstances to show up. You’re resourceful enough. Hold the mindset that implementable solutions exist for every circumstance. I honestly believe, and experience has proved it, that things have a way of working out. So my question for you is, what word will you select to tune in into an expansive 2021?
These questions may guide your process to choose your word for 2021:
- What do you want to call in for 2021?
- What’s your soul guiding you to do?
- In which ways can you access your fullest potential?
- If you were a superhero, what would be your superpower?
- How can you build greater trust in yourself?
- Who do you want to be for yourself?
- What type of energy do you want to embody?
My word for 2020 was VISIBILITY, and I was selected as a panelist for the BYCA Inspiration Day in Hawaii and for the Women Economic Forum of the Caribbean. Even though most of my live events were canceled or postponed to 2021 due to the pandemic, I was featured on Inspired Coach Magazine of Australia about my signature coaching framework to help my clients turn breakdowns into breakthroughs. I share this with you so you can see the power of the intentional focus on your theme word for the year.
My word for 2021 is ALIGNMENT. Dr. Joe Dispenza says that “each time you make a new choice that is in alignment with your future, you are priming your brain to install the neurological hardware to actually think, act and feel like the person you want to be in your future.” I’m committed to ensuring my energy and actions are aligned with my goals.
Commit to yourself and make any change work for you
Be the energy you want to attract. Every accomplishment is the result of the action you take each and every day. Clear away whatever is preventing you from living life to the fullest and in a whole way. Hold space for the hope that things will change for good. Leverage your gifts and talents and trust your own unique power. Ring in the New Year stepping into your worth and embodying your word for 2021!
