As we embark on 2014, I want to wish you a very happy and healthy New Year!

May this New Year bring you and yours an abundance of peace, love and happiness.

The New Year is always so exciting because it marks the completion of what was while bringing a renewed sense of hope for the future. This is a great time to celebrate all your victories during 2013, let go of anything you are ready to release and contemplate how to more forward with more freedom, bliss and prosperity.

Here’s a great ritual I do to usher in every new year with more ease and joy.

Get a pen and paper and gift yourself with 15-20 minutes–you’ll love what you discover!

Start by writing about your experiences during 2013. What did you learn? How did you change, transform and grow? What gifts did you gain–from the blessings and from the challenges? What are you ready to let go of? What do you want to celebrate? What insights and wisdom do you have now that you didn’t hold a year ago?

On another piece of paper, start to contemplate 2014. How can you take all the insight, wisdom, and experience you’ve gained over the past 12 months to make this new year spectacular? What do you want to create in 2014? Imagine yourself a year from now (embarking on 2015), how do you want to feel? What do you want your life to look like and be like?

Write down your intentions, dreams and goals for 2014. Get clear about the details that you would like to occur and be sure to include the energy you want to experience and how you want to feel throughout the year. Play like a child and have fun! After you’ve written this down, put a reminder in your calendar to read through it the first day of the next twelve months. Let yourself feel the energy you want to create during 2014 in your body now and every day of this new year.

May 2014 be the year your dreams come true!
