Over the years I have become less enthusiastic about making new year resolutions and instead tend to follow the cycles of the Moon.
The New Moon is often the perfect time to birth something and set new goals, and the Full Moon is the perfect time to bring things to an end or harvest your rewards.
Sometimes making goals on a month to month basis can be more relevant, more rewarding and more likely to be achieved. They can also be supported by the energies surrounding the Moon and planets.
One thing that I do like to set at the start of the year however, is a soul goal.
These goals are more about you on a holistic level and less about achieving or completing projects.
Goals for your soul are more focused on spiritual and personal development and are easier to navigate in the long term.
In fact, creating goals for your soul is really about learning how to deepen your observation and communication with the soul or higher self and to develop a stronger understanding of your soul journey.
Goals for the soul are heard by your Divine Spirit Team and then trickled down to you throughout the year.
They go so much deeper than weight loss goals or learning to speak French, and into a more energetic space where they can manifest through your sacred intention and the will of the Divine.
Here Is How To Craft Your Soul Goal:
1. Choosing a Soul Goal
We are always working on our soul lessons whether we intent it or not, but when you become aware of what your soul is working on you can begin crafting a goal to help you navigate through the journey.
When it comes to choosing a soul goal, try to think about themes or patterns in your life and where you have felt most challenged or most uprooted. From here you can then work out which direction may be the most beneficial for the year ahead.
2. Crafting Your Soul Goal
Once you have identified your soul goal write it out on a piece of paper. There are no rules about what you write. Here is my example to help inspire you:
My Soul Goal for 2017:
“I want to shift out of my comfort zone this year and into new territory and adventures. I want to wholeheartedly step into my fullest potential and allow myself to make decisions with confidence, grace and ease. I want to serve the Divine within me and release all people, attitudes and beliefs that shift me away from my true calling. I am ready.”
3. Sending Out Your Soul Goal
Simply sit in a quiet place, maybe even light a candle or sage your aura before you begin. Again, there are no rules with this.
Recite your soul goal out loud three times with feeling, for all the heavens to hear. As you are saying your goal, try to really feel it and take it into your body and into your being.
After you have finished, fold up your soul goal and leave it tucked away in your room or on your altar.
It is not necessary for you to re-read your soul goal however, it may be fun to look back on it at the end of the year.
Making a soul goal has always been rewarding for me and I hope you can all experience the benefits that come along with it!
