Because when you have clarity on what you truly want in life, you can claim it! When you know which direction you want to go, you will align your actions, decisions, and thoughts in alignment with it. And head in the direction towards your desires.
So I’m here to guide you to connect with your CLARITY SUPERPOWER!
After reading this post, you will feel excited to seek clarity on your desires for the year ahead. With a definitive list of desires for 2021, you’ll feel motivated and excited for the possibilities that lie ahead for you, and feel ready to connect with and co-create your desires!
I’ve always loved the idea of “new year resolutions” and from a young age I’ve been setting myself 3 resolutions and stayed relatively committed. But for many, New Year Resolutions have negative connotations as people set resolutions to improve… and then carry on as normal with little improvement. They have a bad reputation and often disregarded!
I truly believe it’s partly because resolutions are not made in connection with what people TRULY WANT! Because the time isn’t taken to KNOW what they really want. What they desire for themselves and their year. And as they aren’t connected to what they truly want, no action is taken!
So… throw away the resolutions idea and welcome in DESIRES!
I first heard the idea of creating the number of desires in alignment with the year from Gretchen Rubin’s podcast ‘Happier’… so this blog is dedicated to your 21 desires for 2021.
It’s a simple and clear way to connect with what you want for yourself in the coming year. Whether it’s things to focus on, new habits to implement, money goals, ways to have fun along the journey… it’s a wonderful way to ask the important question…
So ask yourself… Right now, in this moment, what do I want for myself? What do I want to be proud of? What do I want to be celebrating?
You might ask this question and think… I’m not sure.
If this is your initial response, that’s okay, but know that you have desires within you that are ready to be claimed. Perhaps you’re not allowing yourself to express what YOU want because your energy and attention is focused on others.
But know that by prioritising things in your life that make you feel fulfilled, happy, joyful and calm… energetically creates a beautiful space for others too. You will show up for others as your best self and will create a gorgeous ripple effect as you inspire others to be their best selves too.
To guide you with your “21 desires for 2021”, I’ve prepared questions for you to ask yourself and explore what it is you TRULY DESIRE.
This could fall into life and business categories like…
I’ve designed this to support you in thinking holistically… as each aspect of your life impacts the other. Your gorgeous business is connected with everything in this list.
You may have desires that fall into more categories than others or you may have desires across all areas. There is no right or wrong way to do this… trust the desires that come up for you are meant for you right now.
A desire is simply a thought or idea that comes to you.
But what makes it different to others is the FEELING you experience when you think about it. I call this feeling ‘expansive’… it feels like an expanding positive emotion within your body. It’s growing, it feels like excited anticipation, it’s inspiring and sparks positive inspiration for action. Your body is physically reacting to the desire too – you’re standing and feeling taller, you feel stable.
The opposite is a thought or idea that feels restrictive.
It has the opposite effect… you feel your body retreating within itself, it’s a shrinking feeling of protection. Your body language is more hunched over and smaller. This is an indication that this thought or idea is not yet a desire for you… it may become one with time and growth, but it’s a “not right now”.
Trust your body and the emotions – they are always speaking to you subconsciously.
Create yourself a scared space to tune in with your desires and body… and start claiming what you want for 2021.
No desire is too big or too silly.
Don’t limit yourself and think “realistically”. If one of the questions sparks an expansive idea… trust it and write it down. The “how” will reveal itself with time if it’s meant for you.
BONUS TIP – do this exercise in the morning or before bed, after listening to a calming meditation to tune in with your higher self. You will find there are less distractions and outside noise within your mind so you can focus on connecting with your desires.
As you read the questions, note down the desires that come to you.
Imagine it’s 31st December 2021…
Once completed, go back through the list and connect with your body as you read the desire. Does it feel expansive and exciting imagining this is your new normal next year?
If yes… that’s a 2021 desire.
If no… explore this and see what prompted your answer. Is there something else which is a desire for you?
After this exercise, you will have your 21(or more!) desires for 2021. Woohoo – celebrate yourself for claiming your desires!
Don’t allow your desires to hide in your journal for months to come.
To remind yourself of your desires and to manifest them into your reality, make this list part of your rituals and routines. Here are my favourite ways…
Have fun with connecting with your desires… and know that you can complete this every year.
And if you’re completing this before 2021… don’t wait on taking inspired action towards your desires. START TODAY!
