A New Year of New Beginnings

As you begin to move into another new year filled with opportunities for new beginnings, notice what is starting to stir in you.

Allow yourself to connect with any emotions that are rising to the surface.

Pay attention to what synchronicities are suddenly appearing.

What is being awakened within you? What is beginning to bloom around you?

Take a moment to ponder these questions, then read the poem below.

New Year - Possibilities

For a New Beginning

In out-of-the-way places of the heart,
Where your thoughts never think to wander,
This beginning has been quietly forming,
Waiting until you were ready to emerge.

For a long time it has watched your desire,
Feeling the emptiness growing inside you,
Noticing how you willed yourself on,
Still unable to leave what you had outgrown.

It watched you play with the seduction of safety
And the gray promises that sameness whispered,
Heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent,
Wondered would you always live like this.

Then the delight, when your courage kindled,
And out you stepped onto new ground,
Your eyes young again with energy and dream,
A path of plenitude opening before you.

Though your destination is not yet clear
You can trust the promise of this opening;
Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
That is at one with your life’s desire.

Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
For your soul senses the world that awaits you.

~ John O’Donohue

    I often sit quietly to listen to the whispers of my soul. If I am wise I heed what they are telling me. The new year is the perfect time to go within and begin again. This verse is so lovely in how it tells this tale. Happy New Year, Tina!
