How to Work With the Power of Beginnings in 5 Steps

How to Work With the Power of Beginnings in 5 Steps

A new year is an opportunity to set new goals, take new risks and get clear on how you want your life to look. However, working with the power of beginnings is a choice that you must consciously make.

Although the changing of the seasons and the coming and going of each year are the cycle of nature that has taken place for billions of years, it is humans who put meaning behind them and choose its "newness."

Just because a new year comes doesn't mean that a new energy naturally comes with it. If we don't choose newness for a better tomorrow, then tomorrow will be the same as today.

—Ilchi Lee

Beginnings are fertile with power, high-vibe energy and creation. It is by consciously choosing to make the new year (or anytime of year) a beginning, that you empower yourself to work with this power.

It's possible to manifest great things and achieve massive goals when working from this place of conscious choice with the magic of a beginning sprinkled on.

If you can get clear on what you want to begin or make anew, you’ll feel your laser focus engage, and everything that is not in alignment with that fall away. A great way to go about this is to first think about how you want to feel rather than what you want to specifically achieve. In place of “Save $2,000 a month and travel to Peru,” you could say “I want to feel financially stable and abundant enough to travel to where my heart most desires.”

Feelings are magnetic and by focusing on the feeling, you open the door to multiple opportunities that could help you achieve that feeling, and not just focusing on one very explicit goal.

Many times, we experience tunnel vision when we set our sights on something–which keeps us away from alternative paths to the same goal. This can likely end in disappointment for not checking off all the goals set at the beginning of a new year.

To avoid this, follow these easy steps and allow your heart and intuition to lead the way with way more success while your head takes a much needed new year vacation.



  1. Feel: The electric energy of your heart and sharp sense of your intuition are there to guide you. When you think of something you desire, take careful note of whether your heart expands and what your intuition senses. This is your inner compass talking to you, and learning to listen it will help you say “yes” and “no” to the right circumstances with trust and clarity.


  2. Envision: Your ability to create your reality is greatly heightened by your power of vision. On your mindscreen, play out the emotion and sensory experience of achieving your goals as if you already had. Play out the situation in your mind and actually see yourself experience the joy of that accomplishment.


  3. Speak: Tell anyone and everyone who will listen what you are setting out to achieve. This is not to say that you must reveal every detail of your desire, but simply that you will be achieving it affirms your intentions to yourself and the universe.


  4. Write: There is massive power in language. Words carry energy and by writing your intentions down, in your own handwriting, you are strengthening the metaphysical bridge leading you to your goals.


  5. Act: “Actions speak louder than words” is a phrase that is timelessly true. Without mindful action, you are just spinning your cosmic wheels. Choose to live your intentions each and every day and take every possible action that is in alignment with where you want to go.


You are absolutely capable of achieving all your heart desires. The power within you is literally limitless if you choose to see it that way and apply it to your life.
