"The best way to predict your future is to create it." - Abraham Lincoln
One of the best ways to end a year and start a new one is to reflect on the past year and plan for the future. Before the new year arrives, take some time to look back at the last 12 months and think about the things that went well, the things that you might want to change, and the things you would like to accomplish in the upcoming year. Some questions to consider; What energies do you want to leave in 2022? What energies to you desire to embody for 2023? This is a time to reclaim yourself.
The Numerology behind 2023
When it comes to setting intentions, I love considering the formal cycles that will be felt in the coming year, so much of this is seen by the Numerology leading the way. 2023 is a 7 year (2 + 0 + 2 + 3 = 7) In numerology, the number 7 is associated with knowledge and wisdom. It is believed to represent analytical thinking, spiritual progress, and a deep desire to understand the world around us. The number seven is often referred to as a spiritual number and is seen as a symbol of inward direction and spiritual enlightenment. In some cultures, 7 is also a sign of good luck and is often used in wishes and blessings. People with this number in their numerology or astrology charts tend to be observant, intuitive, and often quite connected to their own inner guidance.
7 Intentions to set for 2023 based on Spiritual Principles
1. Make time for self-reflection and thoughtful reading each day.
In the era of social media, we often find ourselves too busy. Self-reflection and reading can be a great way to start or end each day. Taking time to reflect on the events of the day and how your actions have impacted yourself and others can help you gain insight into your life and relationships. Reading can help you connect to a higher power and can provide peace and comfort during difficult times. Try to make it a habit to practice self-reflection and thoughtful reading every day, even if it’s just for a few minutes. You may find that it can really enhance your mental and spiritual wellbeing.
2. Practice gratitude and appreciation for all the good in your life.
Practicing gratitude and appreciation is a wonderful way to manifest in all areas of life. It can be as simple as taking a moment, each day, to think of something positive or to express thanks for something that made you smile. It could also be something bigger like thanking those in your life who have helped you or made a positive difference. This small but mighty habit brings more good into your life and creates a more positive outlook on life.
3. Seek to understand the spiritual nature of the world around you.
By exploring the spiritual nature of the world around us, we can gain valuable insights into our own lives, and the lives of those around us. To help us understand the spiritual nature of the world, we can look too many sources, such as ancient spiritual texts, historical accounts, and even our own experiences. Additionally, we can look to the universe around us for divine inspiration. Each one of these elements inform our understanding of the energetic forces at work in our lives. The world around us shares insight into the beauty, mystery, and power of the spiritual world, and in turn, gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and our place in this world.
4. Spend time outdoors, connecting with the beauty of nature
Spending time outdoors is a great way to connect with the beauty of nature. Whether it's taking a walk through a local park, going on a hike, or simply sitting in the backyard taking in the fresh air, you can enjoy the beauty of nature in so many ways. So, take a break from your regular routine and explore the natural world around you!
5. Focus on developing meaningful relationships with others.
Developing meaningful relationships with others is essential to living a fulfilling life. It takes time and effort to cultivate relationships, but the rewards are worth it. Start by listening to what others have to say and offering genuine compliments. Show an interest in their lives and be willing to share experiences from your own. Be patient and understanding when disagreements arise. Make sure to express your appreciation for the things they do for you. Lastly, don’t forget to have fun together! Building meaningful relationships can be one of the most rewarding parts of life.
6. Develop an attitude of service, offering your talents and skills to help those in need.
Developing an attitude of service is an important aspect of life. It can mean offering time, energy, or resources to help those in need. Whether it's helping a neighbor with yard work, volunteering at a support center, or donating to a worthy and trusted cause, there are many ways to show your commitment to service. Additionally, using the skills and talents we have to help others is a great way to make a positive difference in the world. By taking the time to lend a helping hand, we are able to create meaningful connections with our community and make a lasting impact.
7. Work towards a sense of inner peace, contentment, and joy
Achieving a sense of inner peace, contentment, and joy is an important goal that takes time, patience, and practice. Daily habits are the key to building strength towards this area of ourselves. Taking time for yourself each day to focus on the present moment can help you to find a sense of calm and peace. Practice mindfulness and gratitude and spend time with people who make you feel supported. Engage in activities that bring you joy and contentment. Most importantly, be gentle and patient with yourself and remember that progress is not linear.
