I read somewhere that 2014 is going to be a special year because there's a new moon on the first night of the year and that's apparently a good omen. Well, I'm all for good omens ... bring them on.
But we're not quite into 2014 yet, so I'd like to invite you to find some time in all the festivities to sit quietly and contemplate your past year. Take a moment to remember the highs and lows of each month that has passed. What have you learned? What can you now release? How have you cared for yourself and those closest to you? Could you do more to create the life you were born to live?
Taking time to be still and reflect has a power that is easy to under-estimate. We rush about so much - even having fun can be exhausting and deplete mind and body - that we need the counter-point of stillness and rest to bring our lives into balance.
Have a wonderful New Year celebration and watch out for my special Detox Reflexology offer, available throughout January, to bring mind and body back into balance and clear out some of the excesses of the festive season.
With heartfelt wishes for a wonderful New Year when it comes and Health, Wealth and Happiness in 2014.
