Happy new year darling hearts!

Well, similarly to last year we’re a couple weeks in before I get this first post up, but I’m thrilled to know that so many people were looking forward to having their words of their year as a gorgeous print out again!

Over the new year I was travelling around Western Australia which was absolutely stunning, it was wonderful to see more of my own country. After we got home I still needed a few days to slowly transition into this new year and what I hope to do and experience. It took a little while to decide on my words, last year they were Clarity, Freedom and Spirit. These are still values that I hope to continue to bring into my life, but as we all shift and change each year there is always new dreams, insights and experiences that we need to grow.

I recently signed up to Moon Club, in which the founders Ruby and Alexandra speak a lot about spiritual activism. I feel this is something that it going to expand a lot this year as we are seeing so much division and injustice worldwide. I’ve been asking myself what do I really stand for, what am I no longer willing to put up with, how can I use my gifts to help others more. While my words are not specific to this, I think as a collective, spiritual activism will be a strong theme in 2017.

So here are my three words and a little about why I chose them:

Magic - Word of the Year 2017 - Maps to Herself

This is a word that for me includes a few things that I am ready for in 2017, but primarily this is about inviting in divine source to all areas of my life. I am very much prone to needing to control things and hence become anxious when they don’t quite go to plan! I’m beginning to understand that I can invite more magical ease and flow by surrendering it. And I think this is the most loving way to allow better things to come along.

Patience - Word of the Year 2017 - Maps to Herself

I love the quote ‘Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.’ – Lao Tzu. Patience is a quality that feels a little lost these days. In my work I find myself wanting to be able to do things quickly and efficiently, to figure everything out right in this moment, or hoping to do/make/create all the things. I will be allowing my work and life to go at the pace it’s meant to without trying to push. And of course, this can also allow all those unknown blessings and opportunities to make their appearance all in divine time.

Spice - Word of the Year 2017 - Maps to Herself

My third word was partly the reason it’s already mid Jan creating this post, while the other two came through more strongly, it took me a little while to come upon a word that best described the feeling I wanted to evoke. For me this word cheekily invites a little more energy, fire, attitude, confidence and rebelliousness. I think my moon and rising signs in Leo are wanting some air time in 2017.

Interested in a free printable graphic of your word of the year? Over the last couple of years I’ve had hundreds of requests for these, so amazing! All you need to do is comment before this Friday 20th of January with your word or words and which colour you’d like from the examples above (sorry, no custom colour requests) and I’ll send you a high res graphic next week to print and stick up on your wall, vision board or in your journal as a reminder. The email you include in the comment will be where I send your graphic. I do these for free each year, but if you’d like to leave a little gift you can do so here :)

Wishing you a beautiful 2017!
