I typically don't seek out information for myself. I prefer to let the information come to me. If I need to know it, I will be alerted by my intuition. However, I do enjoy doing a "Word of the Year" to tap into the energy of the year ahead gently.
Once I have my word, I like to write it in the front of my planner. This way, I can refer back to it and think about how it relates to where I'm at presently. Once identified, the word often holds significant insight into the coming year. You can also meditate on it and see what other lessons it will teach you throughout the year. At the end of the year, I will often reflect and see how the word or phrase is applied through the year.
You can choose to share your word, or keep it to yourself. The potency of the word doesn't change if you share it with others.
How do you find your word of the year? How do you use it once you have it? I would love to hear any traditions or rituals surrounding it!
