Some of us like to make New Year’s resolutions. For some
though, making resolutions doesn’t resonate. Others of us like to have a word
or a phrase to aid us in the coming year. But what’s the point of having a “word”
and how do we use it when we have one?
What’s the Point?
A word can represent a goal, a direction, or energy we’d
like to experience. It is an affirmation of what the coming year represents to
us. It is a concise message that we can carry with us as we move through the
We can choose our word intentionally, knowing what the
coming year has in store for us. It can be based on a goal, something we’d like
to achieve. It can also be an affirmation for an energy we want to experience,
carry, and put out into the universe.
Our “word” becomes a focus. It can remind us of what’s
important-our intention for the year. When challenges arise, we can recall our “word”.
We can allow it to remind us of our goal, affirmation, attention, and move in
that direction. Our “word” provides us with guidance.
How to Choose a Word.
When we know that the coming year brings major events, we
can choose a word that will help us navigate those events. When we have goals,
we can choose a word that helps us focus on those goals. When we aren’t sure
what the year will bring, we can choose a word that helps us remain open to
There is another way to choose a word, meditate on it. Set
the intention to receive a word in meditation. It may not come immediately, but
with focus and intention, it will come. Be open to receiving whatever word
comes and allow your spirit team to guide you forward.
My Word for 2024.
I like to meditate and receive my “word”, but it didn’t work
last year. As 2023 began, I had no “word”. I tried over and over but nothing
came. Eventually I released attachment and accepted that I wasn’t going to have
a word. I trusted my spirit team and trusted the process.
Again, this year I sat in meditation for my “word” for 2024.
I was surprised to receive two words. My word for 2023 came through at the same
time my word for 2024 came through. It was a little confusing, but I confirmed
it with my intuition and found clarity.
My word for 2023 was “transformation”. If you’ve read my
blog posts in 2023, it is clear that I’ve been experiencing deep transformation
as my spiritual awakening continues and I align with my soul purpose. The year
was filled with deep healing and the continued development of psychic gifts.
All of it was transformative. I feel transformed.
My word for 2024 was more surprising and exciting. That word
is “emergence”. It entered my awareness with an image of the mythological
phoenix rising from the ashes. This year I will be rising up from years of
transformation and emerging into a new life. I don’t always have a word, but
when I do it becomes a source of support and guidance. This year will be no
different as I emerge into a new phase of life.
Your “Word” is for You.
Your “word” can be created by you to help you focus on a goal.
It can be a phrase more than a “word” if that serves you better. You may receive
your word from your spirit team-they do know what is in store for you in the
coming year. Your “word” is for you and your unique Divine life path and soul
Our “words” for the year ahead, are the intentions we are
carrying forward. We already know that the words we use are important as they
communicate our emotions and intentions. The point of having a word for the
year is to set our focus, goals, and intentions, and hold ourselves to it. Our
“words” help guide us forward as we navigate this year.
