In last year’s New Year Intention Setting Pajama Party.  A group of women lawyers showed up to focus on what they were choosing to create in the new year and here are some highlights.

You can play along RIGHT NOW.   Here’s an abbreviated version you can do.  

We first reflected on 2023 with the “River of Your Year” exercise.

If you want to do this too, pull up your Photos App. Scroll through the year. Make note of the ways you spent your time, the happenings, experiences, and people who populate your photos. 

The theme of “obligations, restriction, and doing for others first” emerged as we did.

Please note – there is nothing wrong with you if you share this too!  You are not alone.  

For some, it was that they did more travel, connecting with loved ones than they had given themselves credit for.

For others, it was standing more in a supportive role to the people in their lives.  Celebrating everyone but them.

As you look at your year, what are your themes/patterns and values?

Then we did a forgiveness exercise for all we did not do.  All we didn’t accomplish, the goals missed, the ways we fucked up.

I shared this Hawaiian forgiveness mantra, Ho’Oponopono:

  • Please forgive me.
  • I am sorry.
  • Thank you.
  • I love you.

If you want to do this too – write down all the ways you missed the mark this past year.  I suggest you do this by hand, not typing.  

Then say the above mantra over each one.  Giving yourself and others forgiveness is one of the biggest, and most challenging spiritual practices.  

And important to clear space for what you DO choose to intentionally create this new year.

Which we did using this Wheel of Life.  We each picked ONE area to focus on.  

Wheel of Life

For me it was finances.

For others, it was fun & recreation, health and well-being, and connection to source/spirituality.

No matter what section you use, pick ONE area.  

Then imagine your dream a year from now is fulfilled.  

Write down…“I am so happy and appreciative now that…” and IMAGINE the best possible outcomes!

Then write down all the ripple and domino effects that will come when you embody, do and have that outcome.  

At the end of our time, the biggest takeaway for almost everyone was some version of this…

“I am in control.” 

“I can do this.”

“This is all doable.”

You can too!

If you want help to make this the year you change what is not working for you…

If you feel alone in your struggles.

If you think “I shouldn’t even want to leave my soul-crushing job and should just be grateful for it…”

PLEASE know lots of others are having the same experience.

You are allowed to want what you want AND it is safe for you to make a change.  (Even if it doesn’t feel that way now).

If you’d like my support in the new year, to plug into a proven process, be guided and in community with other women lawyers making themselves the protagonists in their own stories…book a call with me here

Know you are starting the year by taking decisive, powerful action.

You don’t have to go it alone. 

With love and wishes for the most magical year.  May you manifest everything your heart desires.
