As the year comes to a close I always ask myself what are the lessons I have learned? What is it that I accomplished? How were my prayers answered? What am I grateful for? Its good to just take stock and be thankful.

Today, I continue to think of ways that I can achieve my goals and create balance in my life. I know this year I want to focus on relationships. I saw this year where I needed to make changes and now I am ready to cultivate new relationships. I sense there are many kindred Spirits who are also looking for connects that are healthy, uplifting and peaceful.

Life is alchemy and so I want to put myself in the best position to benefit from the powerfulness of the Universe. I have decided to embark on a "40 Day Intimate Portrait of Change". I will consist of fasting, prayer, meditation, creativity, journaling and manifestation. I was researching the significance of the number 40 this morning and found that it a number of tests, trials, meditation, reflection and chastisement. Often one is on a "hero's journey" or I will call it a "Goddess' Journey" to find victory or to achieve a goal. The result of stories with the significant number 40 is victory, resurrection, reconstruction, renewal and transformation. So, with all that in mind I have decided that this 40 day Intimate Portrait of Change will be my journey to a new expanded way of living in complete abundance! Exciting!

I will record my progress on this blog...I will share some of my practices and processes. I begin on New Year's Day! If you want to join me in your own style of a 40 Day Intimate Portrait of Change then please share your thoughts on your own progress and what you have decided to do to bring in a fuller and more vibrant New Year.


While I was researching the number 40 I ran across this site that explained how to figure out your own numerology power numbers - Serena's Guide to Numerology Its a quick and fun way to see what is in store for the new year. My 2010 year is a "1" year for me - meaning New Beginnings, new opportunities! Exciting!!!

Awesome. Looking forward to starting on the journey too...I want to invest and engage my energy in things that bring me/others joy..make me feel good, feed my essence and facilitate healing.

2009 was about recognizing boundaries- enforcing my own and respecting has not been an easy process, I'm still flexing, learning, growing and struggling sometimes..I've made huge strides as well; once I was silent inside and listened deeply :be still, be quiet, be patient, be in-love with yourself is what came to me in my quiet time. I forgave myself and understood deeper than I ever have that the process is the product!

Many Blessings

I am feeling you on boundaries and lessons from just standing strong in who I am...I am ready to move forward powerfully and consciously...I have learned alot about myself and who I have been in the past -which informed a lot of my relationships - I an now ready to see what this new path brings.
Thank you for sharing your thought with me and look forward to hearing more from you about your practice and process.
