Aside

Sacred Present

“Talk happiness; talk faith; talk health. Say you are well, and all is well with you, and God shall hear your words and make them true.” –Ella Wheeler Wilcox

I recently encountered a site called Consciousness Playground, created by Wendy Down, a life coach in Ontario. So far it seems like an interesting place to explore modalities for exploration in consciousness.

One thing that caught my attention as I as perusing the site was Ms. Down’s use of a one-word theme to usher in the New Year. Her 2012 word was GIVE, her 2013 word (okay, 2 words) was THANK YOU, and now for 2014 her word is REINVENT. I love it!

I can confidently say that Ms. Down seems to be one of many who are approaching 2014 with a sense of reinvention, if not a specific driven intention to reinvent themselves. Or, as I would phrase it, allowing reinvention to take place in their lives. This reinvention pattern that I have been seeing is more than New Year resolutions. Many people have crossed my path who seem to be opening themselves up to something inside them that feels like it needs to “express itself.” They have shared a feeling of “bubbling up” in them, of wanting to be more “authentic,” and to speak what they “really want.” They want to embrace whatever that inner calling is!

Ms. Down is also not alone in adopting a word or phrase for the year ahead. A relative of mine recently shared that she had also chosen a word for 2014 based on where she sees her life with her family heading and what she most wishes for that journey.

If there really is a time of reinvention into which we have entered, I welcome it! It resonates with my own life the past few months as I have opened myself up to new paths and possibilities and as those paths and possibilities have begun to materialize.

And my word for the year? SACRED. And…PRESENT. Can I have two? Yes, of course we can! So my phrase for the year is SACRED PRESENT. The year ahead is full of sacred experiences and opportunities and I will remain present to witness and participate in them.

What will your word or phrase be?

Whatever it might be, know that I join you in blessing your year ahead with that idea. 

Post your word in your home. Paint it, sing it, sit with it in silence. Feel it in your soul like it already is and expect to see it begin.

With love,

  1. I did as you said: I sat with my word in a silence and the loneliness vanished from sight. Now I am trying to catch that word but didn’t know either that’s possible – all languages of the world melt into one lovely talk.

    • I love this! My fortune cookie tonight read, “One of the best things to do sometimes is simply be.” I join you in blessing your year with this intention! And I look forward to seeing you on the playground. 😉

  2. I really like this concept, Simone! I recently had a conversation with a friend in which we were talking about our words for 2014, so reading your post right now is quite timely. Want to know my word? It’s COURAGE!

    • Hi Erin! I always love it when you pop in for a visit here. 🙂 I miss you!!

      Here’s to your courage this year! May you find your inner strength and trust grow and guide you into new territories!

      Oh, and now that I know what your word is you’ll be getting something in the mail from me in the next month or so. 😉

    I believe Ive discovered my word, midway thru the new year, but better late than never … ENCORE. For a variety of reasons. I’ve posted it on the bathroom mirror with colorful washi tape, to remind me every morning and evening.
