How to Use The ‘One” Energy of 2017 To Fuel Your Success

2017 is a “one” universal year in numerology. What does that mean for you? A universal year means that everyone on earth is influenced by the energy related to that vibration during the year. How do you figure out what the universal energy for any given year is? Easy. Example: 2017: 2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 10 = 1

Why am I concerned about you making plans in 2017? The energy of a one year is all about initiation, independence and individuality. It’s the beginning of a new chapter – a new nine-year cycle. The question to ask yourself is, what you want for the next nine years?

Wrap up 2016 Last year was the end of a cycle. It was a nine universal year. We saw so many celebrities pass away. There was international and local turbulence along with economic instability.

Since we are still in January, there are four actions that will help bring the departing energy of 2016 to a productive close for you and open the doors to a much clearer 2017.

Claim it It’s time to take 100% responsibility for your life and move forward. Stop complaining, it keeps you stuck. If it no longer serves you, let go.

Clear it Go through your office, files, home, kitchen, wardrobe… it you don’t use it, get rid of it! Clean out your basement. Do you really need a storage unit? Spend that money on self-care instead. Read my chapter, Let Go in You Are the Artist of Your Life.

Free it Write a letter of forgiveness to yourself (or another) & set yourself free. You are doing this for you, not them. Reframe the past: keep the lesson, let go of the pain. Get help if you need it. I did. Read about forgiveness.

Do it All those unfinished, usually small, tasks on your endless to-do list, cause stress and create pressure. Do it, delegate it, or cross it off your list!

Five keys to your success in a one universal year:

1. Ask yourself what do you (really) want for the next nine years? What do you want to bring into your life? Plant the seeds for your future. Make a plan and stay flexible. Take the time to do this. Most people spend more time planning a two-week vacation.

2. Me, me, me The energy of the 1 Year is all about you. Go for it with self-care! Focus on what you want. Take care of the body your spirit lives in. You cannot give what you do not have.

3. Take action What’s in your way? Fear. Read about how to deal with fear. Choose a path, and take your first step.

4. Fail Fast. Don’t judge, take responsibility for your messes. Fall down seven time get up eight.

5. Risk & experiment The old doesn’t work anymore and the new isn’t here yet. Try, fail, succeed, but no matter what - keep moving.

It’s your year Get rid of what you no longer want in your life. Eliminate what no longer serves you. Get rid of clutter, forgive yourself and others and take responsibility for your life. Accept what is, and move on.

2017 is a time to plant the seeds of your intention for a new cycle of nine years. Dig down deep and express your desires, clarify your dreams and visions for every area of your life. Meditate, find your inner GPS. Where do you want improvement? Do you want better relationships, finances, career, health, deeper spirituality - clarify what you want, and begin your first step on that path.
