12 DAYS OF GIFTS: FROM THE DARKEST DAY TO THE NEW YEAR
”I have noticed that finding quiet and calm, as I head out of one year and into the next, can connect me to my purpose and deepest knowing in ways that are inaccessible at other times of year. So between December 21 and January 6, I do a lot of reflecting, journaling and planning!” - Mia Moran

12 DAYS OF GIFTS: FROM THE DARKEST DAY TO THE NEW YEAR

We are giving away 12 days of gifts. Happy Holidays!!! Today, the day gift #1 gets released and the Winter Solstice, is the darkest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. For me this starts a two week period of deep reflection of all that has happened in the year coming to a close, dreaming of what is to come, and planning for the year ahead. I literally look forward to it starting at Thanksgiving!

In celebration of 300 episodes on the PlanSimple podcast, I thought that I would take you through some of the processes, exercises and prompts that are really meaningful to me. Each day, we will release an episode, and many of the days will have fun (and very useful) printables!

Gift 1: RELEASE

Today I want to give you a guided meditation that the amazing Heather Dressel @DivinelySensitive led at our last event. 

I love honoring the Solstice. For me it is a time of releasing everything that does not serve me — and it’s become that for my kids too. We each write what we are letting go of and burn it in the fire. It serves as an amazing family tradition, AND I take some alone quiet time to go even deeper. 

RELEASE. Listen to today’s prompt and Heather’s guided meditation on the Podcast. Get quiet. Write it down. Share what you are releasing.

Gift 2: Relate

Vanessa Linsey is wise, honest and really funny! She’s this amazing combo of magical and practical that is made possible by her commitment to presence. When she is not teaching about moon cycles, she is a mediator. She is also an amazing mama, who has created a literal Brady Bunch.

“When we can hold the line in the present moment, in the midst of challenges and triggers, we can further align with our healthiest and best source – providing us with our biggest potentials…. The person who triggers you most – let’s imagine this person is your best teacher.” – Vanessa Linsey

Listen to her full talk above with some really actionable communication strategies! And download the printable that you will want to keep handy!

Gift 3: Complete

Amy Ahler’s has been using and teaching this tool since the late 90s! I have been doing it for about 5 years. I am so excited for you to do it this year, and next year, and the year after that. 

It is one of the most effective ways I have found to feel complete about the year and TRULY move into your desires for the next. 

My advice. Listen to the episode with Amy. Print out the workbook we made to take you through the process. Schedule some time to go through the process. It is A LOT to take in in a single day. I will be waking up extra early for the next few weeks to do my own deep work, and this is part of that process. I will walk through the steps for 3-5 mornings.

When you get into some of the goal setting gifts (coming up), it is great to have this handy to remember where you are.

Gift 4: Your Word

I think I originally started choosing a word of the year 10ish years ago when Danielle Laporte first came out with the Desire Map. I remember Danielle sharing that her word for the year was “abundance.” I remember just considering that word seemed so scandalous and REALLY exciting at the time. Ever since then, I have chosen a word each New Year’s Day.

I talk about my process on the podcast today. I talk about trying words on and seeing how they make you feel…. I wanted the word “abundance” to work for me the same year it worked for Danielle, but it was NOT my word that year!

Gift 5: Love

We are giving away 12 days of gifts. The idea is that we create a bridge from the Winter Solstice to the New Year! We chose 12 tools, ideas, and strategies that are all about ending this year and planning next year.

Each day, we will release an episode, and many of the days will have fun (and very useful) printables!

DAY 5 – Slow down and make space for love

Some of you all follow my process for creating an Advent calendar each year. I do not create ours from a religious perspective, but instead from a conscious decision to slow down. It acts as a reminder each day… The thoughts that show up each day, help us do this. And on Christmas day, the thought is always something about LOVE and putting that before presents and expectations. AND I always find the way I can do that as a mom, wife, daughter, sister, friend is to connect to my heart first, so I can connect to the sacred all day long.

I hope that today, you can take the time to listen to a meditation by Julie Hannon from Inner Peace and Wellness. Take 20 minutes to connect to your heart, to love, to open up sacred space in your home. Make sure to document what comes up. I will be starting my day with this as well!

Gift 6: Your Vision

We are giving away 12 days of gifts. The idea is that we create a bridge from the Winter Solstice to the New Year! We chose 12 tools, ideas, and strategies that are all about ending this year and planning next year.

Each day, we will release an episode, and many of the days will have fun (and very useful) printables!

DAY 5 – Get clear on your vision

I find it is very hard to stick to goals, and sometimes even create them when we are not connected to our vision. I know you are probably tired from yesterday… But take the podcast on a walk. Move the energy in your body. Give yourself 15 minutes on the other side to capture your authentic vision.

If you are having any trouble, I recommend listening to Heather’s guided meditation from day 1, or going through Completing the Year with Amy Alhers from the day 3 gift. Sometimes there is just too much guck, and too much outside noise to connect with our vision. That’s ok. It’s practice!

Gift 7: 2022 Astrology

We are giving away 12 days of gifts. The idea is that we create a bridge from the Winter Solstice to the New Year! We chose 12 tools, ideas, and strategies that are all about ending this year and planning next year.

DAY 7 – 2022 Astrology

Today’s gift is about taking in what the stars are telling us about 2022. At our 3 day event early in 2022, we had the amazing Mallory Mason give us a glimpse into 2022. Our attendees LOVED it, so we’ve decided to gift it to our whole community. Take it in anywhere you listen to podcasts, and make sure to go to the page on our site with all these presents!!!! We have a visual download to help you see what Mallory is saying.

DAY 8 – Your Year on Your Wall

We go through the process of putting our year on the wall, each year in FLOW365. I LEARNED A LOT when we did it this year about what resonates in such uncertain times. Today’s gift sums those steps up, and gives you the pages for YOUR YEAR ON A WALL!!!

DAY 9 – 5 Dates to take that will change how you think about money

So often I hear from women who are not moving towards their dreams because of money. So often I hear from entrepreneurs at this time of year who are super stressed about biz numbers that are different from what they thought, or are starting to stress about taxes. Each year in FLOW365, taxes, and the dread that comes with that task for many takes over and becomes an obstacle in moving towards goals. 

So this year, I want everyone to have a plan to make the system of money easier!!!! Here is the thing… women who have money will change the world!!! Our partner and friend Megan Flatt from Lets Collective reminded FLOW entrepreneurs of this last week when we were planning what we want to earn in 2022.

I think one of the most actionable talks I have ever hosted on money and entrepreneurship is with LuSundra Everett, EA @homebiztaxlady at camp this summer. 

YOU WILL FINISH WITH SOME IMPORTANT DATES FOR YOUR CALENDAR!!!

Gift 10: Cravings 

We are giving away 12 days of gifts. The idea is that we create a bridge from the Winter Solstice to the New Year! We chose 12 tools, ideas, and strategies that are all about ending this year and planning next year.

Each day, we will release an episode, and many of the days will have fun (and very useful) printables!

DAY 10 – Cravings

Cravings might be one of the reasons it’s hardest for us to say yes to upgrades in what we feed ourselves. I know goals around weightloss and better health will be filling FLOW Planners in 2022, so I would love us all to have an understanding of what else plays into cravings. This is important work, and will help you make time for the things that will actually help you stick to your healthy ways.

AND it comes with some great planning pages… of course!

Gift 11: What can cards tell you? 

We are giving away 12 days of gifts. The idea is that we create a bridge from the Winter Solstice to the New Year! We chose 12 tools, ideas, and strategies that are all about ending this year and planning next year.

Each day, we will release an episode, and many of the days will have fun (and very useful) printables!

DAY 11 – Your 2022 Oracle 

One of my favorite New Year rituals is drawing a card for each month of the year. This year my friend @lainielovedalby made a beautiful deck that I will be using. If you don’t have a deck, no worries! You can download an oracle app. You could flip to the page of an inspirational book. You could find a deck and do this one in a few days!

We will share some of our favorites over on Instagram!

Gift 12: What’s possible?

DAY 12 – Possibilities in 2022

Before I get to a goal from my vision, I allow myself to become aware of ALL the possibilities. I have found that as women, we very quickly get to, “I don’t know if I’m doing this right” mode when we start writing down goals. And from that place we look around us for the answers, rather than within. We want to have our 2022 Goals come from within. One of the most impactful ways I know to do this is to get excited about possibilities…
