Setting a Powerful Intention for the Coming Year – by Linda Lang

January. It means a new year has begun. A time of hope, new beginnings and possibility.

If we allow that energy into our consciousness. 

Last year, we saw change on many levels. Personally as well as globally. Within nations, institutions, weather and status quo. The foundations are being shaken! We are definitely living in a time of transformation, which often feels uncertain and at times chaotic!

But there is a plan! Divinity at work, call it the evolution of consciousness or humanity, or whatever you like. As with most things, there is more going on than meets the eye.

And we are all here to experience and contribute to the changes on our doorstep.  There is a lovely quote from a book I have had in my library for many a year, Angelspeake, that reminds us we have choice,

“There is no reason to stay in negativity. In life there are two sides, light and shadow. Choose light, and people of light with whom to associate, and spread light wherever you go.”

We all have choice!

How we enter the New Year is important and sets the tone for what we might manifest in through the coming year.

I always spend New Year’s Day very quietly, peacefully and joyfully.  In the evening, I have a good meal with my close family. But through the day, I make sure to spend my time very sacredly.  I have an annual ‘ritual’ that sets the tone for my year.

Every year, I go within to write a powerful prayer that I work with for the coming year. It’s an alignment prayer, a powerful intention that I send out to the Universe.  Never really knowing how it will come back to me and what magic it will manifest. It amazes me how I can connect the things that happen to me during the year to the words of the prayer I’ve written.

Last year, my prayer was about love and abundance, and alignment with my spiritual path.  I saw incredible growth and change within myself, clarity and resonance of what was aligned in joy and what was not. I truly felt very supported by the Universe.  And I am deeply grateful.

One has to be careful with the energy they put into this powerful process and the words that are used.

Take heed to those old words of wisdom, “Be careful what you ask for!”

There were some challenging things that happened for me last year. And as I look back, I can see them clearly in my prayer.  And yet, I would not change the words of my intention if I was given the chance because I know the changes that happened are bringing me growth, self awareness, joy, prosperity and fulfillment.

Every year, I create a Spiritprayer that I use as a giveaway, created from that same sacred space as I connect to all that will be called to it. It is a meditation that you work with, by listening, attuning and aligning to it’s high vibration and to your intention.

And things do change! I consider this a great gift I give to myself and that I joyfully share with others.

If you would like to receive this year’s prayer and audio meditation, please contact me. I’m happy to share it’s powerful alignment energy with you.
