Is your 2011 word shining like the sun illuminating your path? Is it like a star guiding you on the perfect course?
Is your 2011 perfect, powerful word dead or alive?
At the beginning of the year, many of us chose one word (or two or a phrase) as as an alternative to New Year’s Resolutions. This special word was meant to capture our aspiration for the coming year in a simple but compelling way.
The halfway mark of the year floated by a little while back. It’s a good time to check in on your 2011 word. Is it continuing to serve and spark you? Or, has it dissolved into thin air?
By the way, there’s nothing wrong if it’s vanished into space. It’s just helpful to notice that and look at why that might be. It may not be the right approach for you. Or it may be a sign of a deeper blockage beckoning to you.
My 2011 Word
My 2011 word – HEALING – is sizzling like a hot fire. It’s crackling. It’s popping. It’s sparkling. I feel like I’m exploring healing in the deepest and most profound sense of the word. My reflections center around these two questions.
- What is true healing?
- Do I believe in healing?
Although there are many creative ways to engage with our word – which I shared in the first article in this series, I’ve approached my word simply. I’ve let my word percolate and bubble up. It seems to have a vibrant life of its own!
You and Your 2011 Word
