Word of the Year 2023


  Listen On Any Platform


Do you blame or shame yourself when your New Year's resolutions fall flat?

Every gym owner knows that most people have abandoned their resolutions by the end of February.

I have found that creating a Word of the Year to guide me through the year and serve as a fundamental principle that I can take action from to be far more valuable than setting a New Year's resolution.

It allows me to:

  • focus on my priorities
  • honor my dreams
  • create structure
  • look back with love + compassion for myself
  • see my growth

You can download the workbook here: 

2023 was a year of introspection, going inward, on a global, energetic scale.

When I chose my word of the year last winter, I didn't know that.

As a result, I was able to see blockages to my alignment that I didn't know existed.

Was it easy?


Was it necessary for who I desire to be + what I want to create?



In this episode, I walk you through the questions to ask yourself in reflection as well as the process for selecting a WORD OF THE YEAR for 2024 that helps you align with your dreams.



Before you begin on next year, take time to reflect on all that you learned in 2023.

After a few cleansing breaths, allow yourself to feel gratitude for all that you 






Recognize any actions that you may have taken that supported your intention that you made last year.

What things did you learn about yourself on this trip around the sun?

Where did you see growth or clarity?


Take some time to write about anything that came up.

Wash yourself in a wave of GRACE and GRATITUDE for exactly where you are right now.

In the episode, I walk you through the value of each aspect of the workbook.

Even if you are already clued in to a word choice for this year, this process will help you distill the energy of it and embody it in a way that allows you to fully connect to it.

Once you have your Word of the Year for 2024, head over to the community space and share.  I love to hear everyone's word of the year.

And if this exercise was difficult, or it leaves you feeling restless or uncertain, please reach out.  Schedule a free clarity call and we can start to uncover any blocks that you may be missing.


I would love to support in Best Year Ever in 2024.

and the 

intentions I set

Book Recommendation:

Atomic Habits

A perineal favorite.  A life changing book that should be required reading for all humans.   This book will help you make the tiny shifts that result a remarkably transformed life.

Crystal to Work With:


Just like the gentle kiss of sunlight, citrine energizes and excites.  It soothes while it invigorates.  As a stone it embodies the words of the great Kahlil Gibran: "Work is love made visible."

Color to Work With:


Yellow is the color of the Solar Plexus Chakra and inspired action.   It elevates your mood and connects you to happiness and delight.  Moving yellow through areas of tightness can alleviate blockages and inflammation.

Chakra to Work With:

Solar Plexus:

Energy center of movement and action. It is located 2 fingers above the belly button. A strong and clear solar plexus will help you take action in alignment with your dreams.  Breath deep, intentional breaths into your belly; in through the nose and out through the mouth to relieve anxiousness that can form in this energy center.

Waxing Crescent Phase

"What does this mean for me?"

Delve into the Waxing Crescent stage, characterized by steady progress and promising beginnings. Seize this distinctive time to give importance to self-care and foster the development of your emerging ideas.

Caring for oneself involves acknowledging personal needs and embracing self-compassion. It means granting yourself the indulgence of relaxation, reflection, and revitalization, allowing your mind and spirit to achieve balance and renewal. Observe as these elements blossom into something genuinely extraordinary.

Waxing Crescent

"What else is happening?"

This Moon in Aquarius may complicate your emotions also triggering discomfort in your calves, ankles, Achilles, forearm, and thyroid. Mars and the Sun in Sagittarius, suggest you root your motivation closer to home: from your physical space to your lineages that came before you.  It is a good time to rekindle family traditions that may hsve been lost. Mars has entered Capricorn, stirring up the urge to indulge your creativity.  It will be stationed in retrograde through the end of the year.  Notice where the disruptions to your normal routine draw attention to the things that you may be doing because you feel like you should but are actually disconnecting you from your authentic, magical self.
