2016 is on its way out and 2017 is just a couple of days away.  Where has all the time gone?  I really do find the time has gone by so very quickly and talking to friends it seems I’m not the only one.

Although this is a time of year when many people consider making New Year Resolutions, this is a practice I gave up some years ago.  I never did seem to be able to keep them for very long and then just felt guilty when I didn’t.  On the other hand I do like to take a little time to review the past year and consider what I would like to achieve in the upcoming year and see where I need to concentrate my energies.  I do this for my personal life, but as December is my business year end as well, it makes sense to me to set some time aside to consider what I have achieved in the business, what I would like to achieve and how this might be accomplished as well.

I really find a Feng Shui Bagua to be very helpful in my reviews.  It seems to be a practical way of quickly seeing what is working for me and what needs more attention.  Once I’m done I like to post this up on a board so that I can keep a review of my intentions all through the year. As we are all ‘works in progress’ I like the flexibility of being able to adapt and change it as time goes on.


I am also making up a batch of my Endings and New Beginnings Synergy to use while I work.

Endings and New Beginnings Synergy
5 drops Bitter Orange – after all endings can be bitter sweet at times and strength.
4 drops Lemon – to foster the ability to let go and accept change.
3 drops Cypress – for going through changes.
3 drops Juniper – for clearing and cleansing.
5 drops Lavender – for balance and flexibility.
2 drops Neroli – because it’s one of my favorite essential oils and it brings lightness.

This blend can be used in any one of the diffuser methods. It can be added to a mister bottle and used as a room spray. (20 drops to 125 ml distilled water, hydrosol, or alcohol).

My New Year’s wish for you all:
May you be rich in blessings, poor in misfortune.
Slow to make enemies, quick to make friends.
But rich or poor, slow or quick,
May you know nothing but happiness from this day forward!
Irish Blessing
