My Word for 2014: Harmony
I was really inspired by this card that I got recently from my Earth Magic Oracle App. I have received it a couple of times and the description really hit home with me. It's kind of like going with the flow, with a twist. It's being in harmony with what is. Balancing the right elements, rising above turmoil, having a calm center. It embodies a lot of things that are of interest to me. I started to use some concepts from this description and it helped me out even in a very short period of time.
Originally, I was going to have a more 'active' or 'proactive' word, but what I realized is that, as a person who has a tendency toward anxiety and obsessiveness, I think being in harmony and flow is far more important than having the intense focus or even resistance that often accompanies trying to scale some kind of mountain of goals for the year. I think this feels right. It is sort of like allowing, but not quite. I suppose you can imbue a word with multiple concepts. I guess I see this as being balance, peace, flow...resulting in more natural, intuitive decisions and actions. Not ones based on frantic grasping.
