“When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.” ~ Harriet Beecher Stowe
So here we are in 2013. It’s shaping up to be a great year. If you haven’t checked it out already here’s what I have to say about 2013 here:
But maybe you’re just not feeling it yet. Maybe you’re feeling a little lost, exhausted, down, directionless, or simply without the passion you’d like to be bringing into a new year.
Well guess what?
It’s not you. And you’re not alone.
You’ll be comforted to know that we’re still in the throes of that big ol’ energy of 2012. It’s been a huge year, and for many, a tough one. Right now we’re still in that mop-up place. Tidying up loose ends, cleaning up the mess, catching our breath…
2013’s magic doesn’t even begin to kick in until early February. So if you’re just not feeling it yet, if you haven’t got the New Year Mojo, take comfort.
I created a meditation a while ago especially for this – for letting go of 2012 and putting it behind us. Here’s the link:
And for now there is plenty that you can do to make the most of this time of transition. Here are some suggestions:
- Rest. Don’t go launching into new projects just yet. Instead use this time to put positive changes in place that will support you to make the most of the opportunities available to you in 2013. Look after your health, and clean up the remnants of 2012. Potter around. Go slow. It’s okay to do that right now.
- Plan. Planning is a very worthwhile exercise. Spend some time thinking about what you want to put into place this year. Journal that. Make lists from that. Get clear in your head about where you’re going, even though you haven’t started yet. What learning might you need? What resources? What time frames? What support and connections? What space will you use?
- Tidy. Yep, you heard me right. Go through your cupboards. Get your desk in order. Weed the flower bed. Plant vegetables. Find a cleaner or a gardener. Get ready for the new year.
- Meditate. Spend time in nature. Nurture your connection with God, Oneness, the Universe, Guides, Guardian Angels, Earth or whatever you call that Greater Energy in our lives.

Be gentle with yourself right now. Be patient. Be kind. And extend that energy to others. That’s what being a Lightworker is all about. Bless ♥ xx
