Happy New Year!! Yay, we made it to 2020!
Not only is it a brand new year, but also a brand new decade with fresh opportunities and possibilities.
My photo is a metaphor for standing in front of a blank canvass and creating it any way you wish.
A new year brings a renewed sense of optimism, hope, aspirations, goals and dreams.
Those making predictions predict that 2020 is a year of clarity akin to describing our vision 20/20 for seeing.
One of my favourite sayings is “on a clear day, you can see forever”. How true!
So, what is your vision for 2020?
Narrowing down one’s vision can feel overwhelming for some, while for others it can spur on creativity, fun and play.
The energy of the second description feels more expansive, so let’s go with this one!
In keeping with this expansive energy, here are some pondering questions that can help you gain clarity and focus on your vision.
1. What is your true heart’s desire?
2. What would you love to achieve that is almost too good to be true?
3. What secret passion do you want to unleash?
Feel free to journal these responses or contemplate these questions while in nature, or enjoying another activity.
Once you have answered these questions, a fun and creative way to jump start your vision is to create a vision board.
A vision board is powerful visual representation of your desired future. It is a very popular activity, which I and many of my clients have used for years with great results.
Here are 5 steps to create and manifest your own vision board. I share these steps each year to help anyone in my community and beyond get started in creating their own fantastic vision board.
Step 1: Set and state your intention. What do you want your life and work to look like on December 31, 2020? Your intention acts as a compass and forms the basis for your vision and goals.
Step 2: Collect visual images from magazines, books, the internet, etc. that resonates with you in relation to your intention. You will need to set aside some uninterrupted time to cut out the images and arrange them like a collage and glue them onto a large poster board.
The images can represent visual metaphors for what you want to manifest. These images can also help you to gain further clarity on your your goals and heart’s desire.
You can also collect words or phrases that are meaningful to you.
The key is to enjoy the process by playing music, drinking your favourite beverage and so on. What you want to do is work with you intuition when choosing the images and phrases. Simply go with the flow and don’t over think the process.
This is no time for “analysis paralysis”!
Step 3: Complete your board and assess it. What is the story of your vision board? Be sure that your vision board tells a story that you love and feel aligned to.
Step 4: Visualize your desires. Place your vision board somewhere where you can see it on a daily basis so you are always reminded of your vision and goals.
Then take time daily to get quiet, close your eyes and visualize what you desire as already coming into reality. So, feel like you are part of the vision in the now. Do this practice consistently until you feel that your vision and goals have been integrated into your being at a cellular level.
Step 5: Believe, Release & Act. It is essential to have the belief and conviction that your vision will come true. Once you have that conviction and that “inner knowing” then you can release it to the Universe and know that it will bear fruit.
You can’t dictate the time, the exact time because it will bear fruit when the timing is exactly right, so in that sense, you can’t be impatient. You have to surrender it to the Universe.
And you will find that the Universe will start to bring you opportunities whether it is through people or other resources to help you with manifesting your big vision and goals.
Be sure to take action and follow your intuitive leads. Synchronicity and coincidences will begin to appear, which is a great way to know that you are on the right path.

I wish you much success and fulfillment in 2020!
And I invite you to watch this space for some big announcements in 2020. I am set to launch another big vision and dream that I have held for years. This year is finally the right time. Wishing you so much blessings, abundance, love, peace and prosperity.
