Its been an introspective couple of weeks for me and I really felt the need to take some time out over the Christmas and New Year break to reflect on 2013 and process and release the year. This has been a powerful part of me clearing space for 2014 and aligning my energy with all of the new goodness I want to call in this year.
My reflection on 2013 was emotional to say the least. It has felt like a big year for me, and it felt incredibly beautiful and self-honouring to be able to really acknowledge everything I have experienced and the person I feel I now am as a result.
This was my first year of working for myself full-time
Wow, I feel like I spent about 90% of last year living outside my comfort zone but it was such a thrilling and amazing experience. This has not been an easy journey, but it was the best thing I ever did and I am so grateful for every second of it.
I set up conniechapman.com
I made the transition from my old website a life of perfect days, on to the platform of using my own name at conniechapman.com. It felt so authentic and aligned to brand my business under my name, and I am so happy I made the transition
I wrote my first ebook
It is called The 12 Step Dream Creator Guide, which you can grab here.
I launched my first official online program
I had over 120 women from all over the world join me in The 90 Day Transformation Project. I watched this program change lives. The results these women experienced blew my mind and their emails, comments and interactions in the Facebook community literally had me in tears.
I fulfilled a huge dream of living in Bondi Beach
Sometimes you just find a place where you feel you belong and seem instantly at home. Bondi is that place for me. Not only do I love the vibe and the lifestyle here, but I adore spending most mornings running along the ocean at sunrise.
I completed Marie Forleo’s BSchool
This acted as a pivotal foundation for me seeing I have pretty much zero business experience. An absolute must for any entrepreneur.
I went on two x 6 day Oneness Retreats with Amir Zoghi.
Wow, these were absolutely transforming for me. I have never experienced such a deep sense of peace, presence and connection with my true self. Incredible.
I also joined Amir’s 12 month Oneness Mentoring Group Program
I am now 9 months in to this amazing journey and it has been absolutely transformative for me. Hands down the best investment I ever made.
I launched a podcast show called Awaken Radio
This was an absolute highlight for me. I love having this platform to have powerful conversations with amazing people from all over the world. Nothing makes me happier.
I wrote, recorded and mixed a powerful Meditation Album
These meditations are the intuitively guided processes I take my clients through in our 1:1 sessions and I wanted to make these available to anyone wanting to experience more peace, stillness and inner shifts.
I ran my first live event
The Live a Heart-Driven Life Workshop and Meditation which was an amazing way to end the year. The event sold out in a matter of days and the feedback I received from the participants blew my heart wide open. Sharing my message in this platform was definitely a highlight of my year.
And most importantly, I ended the year feeling stronger, clearer, more empowered and more self loving than I have in my entire life, and that in itself makes 2013 worth every single minute.
Big Learning’s From 2013
Trust the process: Everything is working out exactly as it is meant to even if you cannot see it yet.
Don’t believe your thoughts: Oh my mind has fed my some crappy stories last year. Sometimes I believed them for a little while too. But every time I break out of the illusion and remember that I am not my thoughts and I don’t have to believe them, I feel so free.
Follow what you feel: It was a big year of learning to live by feeling and allowing my heart to guide me at all times. I have developed such a strong relationship with my inner knowing now that I hear it’s guidance loud and clear. It is beautiful.
Let go: I have had to let go and release a lot of old ways of being and thinking that have not served me. I have had to change my actions and decisions and release external things from my life that I was clinging to.
Just be here, now: That is it. I know that when I am here, fully present in the now, just being here is nothing to worry about. And in that space I find peace. I find connection. I find everything that I am seeking.
Let love guide your life: Make every decision based on what you love and what feels true to you. Speak with love. Think with love. Be love. Drown out any fear, negativity or worry with an avalanche of love.
Be conscious: This has required me to slow down. To really be here. To be aware of what is going on in my mind and my body. Am I in the past or future, or am I here? What am I thinking right now? How am I feeling? Does taking that action feel heavy or light? Yep, it can feel like hard work but conscious living keep you living as the creator of your life.
Calling In A New Energy For 2014
I am getting the sense that 2014 is going to feel very different to 2013, which is exciting to me. I had to process a lot of stuff through last year which at times made it feel a little heavy.
But I honestly feel I have shed a thousand skins and I feel so much lighter and freer coming in to 2014, and I am excited to see what this new energy calls forth.
While 2013 was big, I feel so incredibly grateful for the space is has brought me to. I had to embrace these challenging times as they I knew they were the portals through which I would break through to who I really wanted to be.
This year I will embracing and embodying the energies of; abundance, play, light-heartedness, love, inspiration, joy, success, fun, bliss, laughter, creativity, expression and expansion.
I know the more that I feel into these energies and integrate them in to my daily being, the more these energies will manifest in the world around me. And, it feels so damn good to know that.
What’s Coming In The First Few Months of 2014
I am in the creative zone right now and I am working on lots of beautiful new things for all of you.
1) A website overhaul of conniechapman.com: This new look feels so much more ME. It is fresh, light and beautiful and I can feel it is going to call forth a whole new fresh energy of content that I want to share with you too.
2) Awaken Radio will be returning: I am giving the program a little makeover and I am in the process of securing guests for Season 2 so stay tuned.
3) The 90DTP will also be back: I love this project. It is my little baby and I make sure that every time I run it I review the content. Update it and add in more and more value. So, that is what I am doing now. Stay tuned for when doors open for early bird special towards the end of this month.
4) Working 1:1 clients on the Go Deeper Play Bigger program: My signature 1:1 mentoring program is almost booked out so if you are interested in working 1:1 with me in early 2014, I recommend you get in quick.
