Hopefully, you are reading along daily as opposed to waiting to hear something from me. I have lead a book group around Sarah Ban Breathnach’s Simple Abundance for three years now and I never seem to get out the things I want when I want to but I keep trying.
From the middle of January until the 19th, Sarah went over – in great detail – the six principles of simple abuncance. These six principles will be the themes, individually, for six of the months in the upcoming year, starting with February and gratitude. They are also the backbone of the journey. If you are thinking you don’t recall these, please go back and re-read January 13th through January 19th.
My favorite reading of the year was on January 24th – “Blessing Your Circumstances.” So many parts of my life make this reading ring true. First, this particular year the 24th of January was the 21st birthday of my twins. Second, my faith leads me to believe that my circumstances are a blessing to me as yours are to you.
Finally, in wrapping up the first month of the new year and new journey, please be sure to look at the days following January 19th. Look at what Ban Breathnach calls the basic tools for the journey. She introduced the one tool you MUST use back on the 14th – the gratitude journal – but the rest of these tools are wonderful for your journey. Read about the illustrated discovery journal, the daily dialogue (which, if you have ever read Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way, I find similar to morning pages), your personal treasure map, and golden mirror meditations.
