Tomorrow, September 1st 2016, marks the beginning of the New Spiritual Year. Here are 5 simple steps you can take to get your New Spiritual Year off to a great start. You can work with your personal team of guides to set your personal energy as well as align with the new energy that’s coming in to our environment tomorrow.

Step 1: Regroup personally for the year ending August 31.

Since today marks the end of the spiritual year, it’s a great time to regroup. When you spiritually regroup, you take a few minutes to reflect on what you have experienced and what you learned from those experiences. By taking a little time to do this, your spiritual growth and awareness will grow ten-fold.

Take a little time today to reflect on the past 12 months. Where were you 12 months ago and where are you today? What did you experience? What did you learn? What will you do differently next time? Cleanse and ask your angels to come close to you. Write down the insights that come to you as you reflect on these questions.

Step 2: Regroup the environmental energy for the year ending August 31.

The energy for the year that ends today was “Joyful Manifestation.” This was the theme for the year. You were a part of that energy, even if you didn’t consciously realize it!

Take a moment to reflect: What did you create and manifest in the last 12 months? Where did your joy come from? How do you relate to the theme of Joyful Manifestation?

Remember that manifestation doesn’t just mean money, cars and houses. I’ve heard some amazing stories from my clients of conceiving a baby when they thought it would never happen, big changes happening quickly in their lives, new jobs, new relationships and so on. Perhaps you manifested in the area of spirituality or health. Don’t judge what you haven’t done, look at what you HAVE accomplished. It might seem insignificant but it’s really not. Learn to acknowledge your positive growth.

Step 3: Ask your guidance (angels) for a keyword for the New Spiritual Year beginning September 1st.

If you’ve never worked with keywords before, here’s how you do it. Spiritually cleanse, or simply take a few deep breaths. Close your eyes and relax. In your mind say, “Guidance, give me a keyword or phrase for the New Spiritual year.” Then take a deep breath and totally relax. You will get a word pop in your mind. Open your eyes and write down the word that came to you.

This is your keyword or key phrase for your personal spiritual life for the next 12 months. You can use this keyword as a pivot point for what you are experiencing.

Step 4: Meditate on the keyword or phrase you received.

Now it’s time to take this deeper. Take a couple of minutes to meditate on the keyword or phrase that you received from your guidance. Consider what it means to you and how it fits in to your life. Get a sense of what is coming for you spiritually in the next 12 months.

Write down what comes to you so you don’t forget!

Step 5: Meditate on the environmental energy for the New Spiritual Year “Refined Actions.”

This is the key phrase of the energy around Planet Earth for the next 12 months; September 1, 2016 to August 31, 2017. What does refined actions mean to you? How does it fit in your life? How does it relate to your personal keyword? Again, take a few minutes to meditate and reflect on these questions and write down what you receive.

Bonus Step 6: Set some goals for the coming year.

While you’re at it, this is a great time to refresh your goals and set some new ones. There is protection in direction. When you are clear on your goals, you will naturally be attuned to where you are going in life and your guidance and the universe will be able to work with you to achieve what you desire. I write down my goals and read over them daily. Try this out. You’ll be amazed at what comes to you with ease when you are clear about your goals in life.
