This time of year always
feels like a time of new starts, with the academic year commencing, and
students returning to begin a new year.
If you also are itching for
a new start, or you feel it’s time to start something new or try something
different – here are our favourite mantras to encourage you to be brave,
open-minded, and trust your new path:
trust in new beginnings
This mantra contains a very
important word – ‘trust’. Having trust, faith, belief – call it what you want –
brings you so much peace of mind. Try to let go of worry, and have complete
faith that the new start you are seeking will be the right one, for you and for
open my heart to new experiences, without expectation
This mantra encourages us to
open our hearts and our minds to something new and different. It asks us to
avoid setting too many expectations of how something will work out – just
embrace the unknown, and enjoy the experience.
am evolving and transforming
This mantra celebrates
change within ourselves, not just out in the world, but deep within us. What do
you want to change about yourself? Now may be the perfect time to look for ways
to transform parts of you that need a re-boot.
shine brightly. My potential is infinite
Many people are afraid to
shine their light brightly in the world. They fear they have nothing to offer,
or get scared that they aren’t as good as other people. The truth? Everyone
feels like that at some time or other, and it simply isn’t true. We all have
our own gifts and talents, our own strengths and weaknesses – and the same
amount of infinite potential as anyone else. So, get out there and shine!
change, there would be no butterflies
A powerful reminder that all
things in life change, especially in the natural world. The beautiful butterfly
is created from changes to a caterpillar – and the world would be a less
beautiful place without that transformation taking place.
leap fearlessly towards the life I want to live
What is holding you back? Is
it fear of what other people will think or say? Are you waiting for someone to
give you permission? Are you hoping life will ‘just happen’, rather than you
having to create it? It’s time to take that leap of faith, and start proactively
creating the life that you want to lead.
the waves of change, I find my new direction
Again, there is a message of
underlying trust here. Have faith and trust that things will work out for the
best, and that you will find a new direction in life that is absolutely right
for you – no matter how scary and unsettling the waves of change feel right
my imagination soar and my ideas flow
mantra encourages us to creative and imaginative, thinking up new ideas and
opening our mind up to new possibilities. It is a call for new ideas and new
approaches, and an invocation to access the heights of our imagination. Encourage
your creativity to flourish, as you look ahead for a new project or new start.
go set the world on fire!
Whether you have just
graduated, or just finished a period of study, or simply have a restless urge
for something new – don’t forget to think big. This is your chance to show the
world what you can do, as you go out there and blaze a trail. This is not the
time for playing small – it’s time to shine your light brightly in the world.
See this season as a time
for a new start, or a time to go back to something you have wanted to do for
ages. Find the thing that excites a spark of excitement inside you, and have
the confidence, the faith, and the belief that it is right for you. Say to
yourself that, this month, you will embrace new experiences, and commit to new
