Choosing A Word For 2021

Picking a guiding word for the year is something I’ve done for a while now. Last year I decided to go with a feeling, lighthearted, and quite frankly, this year has left the vast majority of us feeling anything but, am I right?

Normally I just wait til a word pops into my head that feels right, and I go with that. Thing is, I also don’t really do anything to help that word along. Not this year!

I use Passion Planners, which come with a Roadmap to help you focus on and achieve your goal. December hit me hard and I’ve been super depressed. Rereading The Desire Map seemed the thing to do, and Bing! Lightbulb! Feelings, not goals. How do I want to feel next year and more importantly, how can I make it happen? I dropped the gamechanger part of it, choosing instead to focus on all 4 important emotions that compromised my core desired feeling: Light.

It’s not easy finding a picture to represent what I mean by light…

Light? Didn’t I choose lighthearted last year? I did. Is there a difference? Honestly, not much. The world is too heavy right now, and as any empath can tell you, it’s suffocating. Anything that isn’t heavy is how I want to feel, so light, light-hearted…same difference.

I scribbled all over my current planner’s Roadmap, which I never filled out, sifting through words and what would help me feel light, and finally, finally, narrowed it down to Delight, Comforted (a big one), Peaceful, and the hardest one to pin down, Financially Secure and Independent. I’d first chosen “like I make a difference”, and that is a part of it, but mostly I want to work for myself, helping others feel better. Which is a way to make a difference, so yay.

Then came the important part. What will help me feel each of those 4 feelings? Under Comforted I have “my journal, fleece as much as possible (soft soothes me), special treats such as hot chocolate and ice cream”. Nothing major, but little things I can focus on weekly to make sure I stay in the Light lane and don’t veer off into the No Eating for a Week and All I Want to Do is Sleep lane again. I’m still not out of that one yet, to be honest.

I’m still fine-tuning it and haven’t transferred it to my new planner. I feel good about it. I hope next year is better because of it.

Do you choose a word? What method do you use to do so, and have you ever felt the need to repeat one because it means so much to you? Let’s chat in the comments! I’m curious how others go about this.

Happy Yule!!!!

With hope and much love,

Pip 😎

How Holistic Healing Can Help

At work, in my office

I’ve been doing multiple sessions on some people (and Crackers!) for a while now, and today Suzanne sent me this:

Dear Pip,

I count you as one of my blessings and I’m so grateful you’ve taken me on as a client for multiple, recurring sessions. Sometimes, like last night, I don’t realize you’ve sent me light in the day, because I don’t check the message until later, and then I sleep through the night, waking up only once for the bathroom versus nights when I wake up 4 or 5 times.

Your work has benefited me for certain. I wish I could quantify it so it’s less woo woo, but frankly, just because something’s subtle doesn’t mean it’s not powerful. What’s more, neither my doctors nor I can quantify whether the new injectable biologic (once monthly) asthma drug or the new intravenous infusion (twice yearly) of ferritin pulled me out of the drain I was circling this summer. And what surprised me is, they don’t care! They say, As long as you feel better, let’s keep doing it. I haven’t told them about you because, you know. But you channeling focused bonus Light from The Source is definitely a big part of this sustained upswing.

Thank you, again, for everything.

My heart is so happy right now. 💖

Much love, and stay safe,

Pip

PS: You can get your own pet (or yourself) a session (or sessions) right here!
