Getting Ready for 2014 – Will you join me?

“New Year’s eve is like every other night; there is no pause in the march of the universe, no breathless moment of silence among created things that the passage of another twelve months may be noted; and yet no man has quite the same thoughts this evening that come with the coming of darkness on other nights.”

~ Hamilton Wright Mabie

 

Just one more sleep until New Year’s Eve. Australia is one of the first countries to see in the New Year, and Byron Bay does know how to throw a party!  But come New Year’s Eve you won’t find me out partying. Instead I’ll be home at my farm, enjoying a quiet dinner with friends and then some journalling and reflection time before I sit down in meditation to welcome in the energies of 2014.

There is such a shift of energies for 2014. Perhaps you can already feel it. The last gasp of 2012 and its buffer year 2013 are falling away.

There’s a change in the air.

Would you like to add some deliberate intention to the birth of 2014? On New Year’s Eve I have a simple fire ceremony. I’d love for you to join with me, adding your energy and presence to my own. I promise it will be an easy thing for you to do.

Each year I offer up a wish for myself, and a wish for the world.  I write each of them on separate pieces of paper, and the messages I write then hold some of the shape of my meditation.  Before midnight I will burn each wish, letting the energy of my hopes and prayers be carried up into the atmosphere in the heat and smoke of the fire. I will then retire and meditate upon the wishes (intentions) I have created.

It’s a powerful practice. And you can be a part of it too. There’s time to think about what you want. And then when you’re ready simply add your wish for yourself and your wish for the world as a comment at the bottom of this post.

Do it just like this: My wish for myself is……  My wish for the world is…..

Small_bonfire

If you’d like more privacy you can send me a message on facebook , or email me at cauldronsandcupcakes@gmail.com

I’ll print out your wishes, and add them to my own. The only person who will see them is me (and the Universe, of course…).  I’ll honour your intentions in my meditations, and I’ll burn your messages in my New Year’s Eve fire. I’ll also hold this space for a full 24 hours, so that those of you in different time zones won’t miss out.

Together, our collective good thoughts, wishes and intentions shall help shape a 2014 that begins with love, well wishes and positive energy.  What can be better than that?

Love and Blessings to you, ♥ Nicole xx

  15. My wish this year is to learn to really love myself . All last year , with your help , I got to know myself ,then I cared for myself and began to understand myself a little . But next year is the big one . By 2015 I want to wonder why , for years I’ve not liked myself much , so I haven’t given anyone else the chance to get to know me . This is not a selfish thing ,Nicole, it’s a selfless thing .
    Happy New Year to you and yours .

    Cherry x

  17. Thank you Nicole. My wish for myself is that I continue to live from a space of “love over fear” with grace and ease and see the daily miracles; and see the same for my children and loved ones. For our planet I wish the same … our leaders come from a heart space so there’s peace and abundance for all. Best wishes to you and a year ahead of happiness, abundance and health. Dianne x

  18. Hi Nicole,
    Thank you so much for doing this it is a beautiful and blessed thing. There are so many wishes but I’ve managed to sum it all up into one thing and I believe the universe will understand.
    My wish for myself is to find my tribe. The place where I truly belong. My wish for the world is tolerance and understanding of one another which I hope leads to love.

  19. My wish for myself is to honour the creation of habits of healthy mind body and spirit. My wish for the world is to magnify the expression of peace in each and every one of us on this earth and beyond. Thank you so much Nicole. You are inspirational. Happy New Year to you.

  20. Most of my wishes have come true – namely being accepted into university to study my dream course. But my one, big wish, is to find love without having to compromise who I am and what I value. My wish for the world is – of course – peace, with a BIG kindness and compassion chaser. My wish for you (and me!) is an abundance of good health xoxo

  25. What a loving gift to us and the universe, Nicole. You are a blessing.
    My wish for myself is to have the health, energy and strength to continue on this sacred journey called life and that my son be granted the same wish. My wish for the planet is that we find a way to love, honor and respect each other’s differences and learn to talk, rather than fight our way to community.

  26. Sorry, this is just a tad late but thank you in advance and blessings to you! This year will surely be a wonderful year of growth for everyone =)

  27. My wish for the world is that all beings visible and invisible find TRUE peace and TRUE happiness.

  28. Dearest Nicole; thank you for always shining your real, authentic and full of love light for others; it gives me a beautiful feeling all over.

    For me I wish to surrender and trust myself unconditionally, to follow my path with love in my heart, my dancing shoes on and totally rocking to my own music. Yipeeeeee.

    My wish for the planet is that enough humans wake up to these big corporates who are all about greed and leave them in the dust and start focusing on companies that are about wellbeing for all. Let use our power to let them know they are no longer needed. Love Love love to you. Hugs Fee xxxx

  29. My wishes for myself and the world is the same: Deepening connection with my body, mother earth and the universe and growing my spiritual community, I wish this for our world, also.
    Thank you. Sending love to you.

  30. Blessings and love to you Nicole and wishes for your good health and happiness in 2014.
    My wish for the world is a greater awareness, care and respect for the earth and all it’s inhabitants; greater love, peace, acceptance and compassion among all peoples.
    My wish for myself is to truly love, honour, nourish and take care of my whole SELF; to find the perfect home for myself, my son & pussycat where we can be relaxed and peaceful; to feel peace, calm and joy instead of the anxiety and overwhelm that I mostly experience; and to have a greater connection with my higher self, my higher power, spirit guides, angels, fairies, nature and all the elemental kingdom.
    Thank you and happy New Year xxx
