In 2019 I want to feel…

My word for next year is, as mentioned before, transformation, but how I want to feel is just as important, thanks to Danielle LaPorte. Last night I was pondering the idea, and “lighter” popped into my head. Lighter physically, emotionally… just in every way. Life has become heavy and I want to let that go.

“Comfort” was the next word, and then another popped in, and before I knew it the words from the definition of hygge that I found “comfort, joy, and courage” completed the list. Four simple words that mean so much to me.

And the thing is, by feeling those three words, I’ll feel lighter, too!

Do you use feelings as your guiding light in life? Not in the Law of Attraction way, but just as signposts to help you along your path? What words come to mind for next year?

PS: On Twitter GetGonetheMovi1 posted a response to Ed Solomon’s tweet concerning the correct pronunciation of Happy New Year (I can’t find his tweet now and suspect it was deleted because people took it seriously), and now I can’t get it out of my head. I’ve been adding specific calendars to it, so, Joyous Gregorian Calendar Renewal to you! 🙂 Let’s hope next year is better beyond imagination!

Admitting That I Want Things

Most of my life has been financially strapped, you know, the ‘paycheck-to-paycheck’ lifestyle. With too many times that were behind by two paychecks or so. It sucks. It’s a scary way to live, the stress ebbs and flows but never quite disappears because how will you pay rent this month is never, ever far from your mind…

Since my word for next year is transformation, I’m going to sit down today and do something I’ve never, ever, ever done before: I’m going to write a list of things that I really want. Things that I never admit to because “I’ll never have the money for it” is the first thought after, “Wow, wouldn’t that be cool?!”, followed by, “There are other things that are more important than that”. It never ends. So I pulled out my Passion Planner and started this page.

I’m going to write down every single thing, no matter how frivolous, like Funko Pops which I never buy because ‘no, spend the money on necessities’ overrides the desire for joy in my life. Even if it comes from a mini Funko.

What do you want to do differently next year? Something that seems small but in many ways is the biggest leap you can take? By writing these things down, I’m putting it out to the universe that I’m READY to live abundantly. That I am so over being poor. That I never want to have to ask for financial help ever, ever again (thanks, Mom, as always). That I want to experience things that I’ve never allowed myself to. That yes, living abundantly actually does mean spending money on more than what is necessary to live, and that by doing so, I open the door for more income to flow to me.

I’m ready. Are you?

BTW, I have a session that shifts all the energies of your lower five chakras, one that can bring about big changes over time. What a perfect way to ring in the new year, right? Check it out!

Word for the Year and a Bit of Divination

Last week I pulled a card from the Osho Zen Tarot, seeing what it had in mind for me for my word for 2019. It came up with this:

I wasn’t quite feeling it, so later I tried again. Same card. Hmph.

The next day I was watching this weird show a friend mentioned that’s called Kentucky Ayahuasca, and one of the clients mentioned “transformation”. Ok, that’s 3 times. Fine.

Then yesterday another friend gave me a card reading, and what did she say during the reading? Yeah. So. Guess what my word is for next year? Lol

I pulled a few cards on the 20th to see how the winter season was going to go for me, and these came up:

That’s not a great picture, sorry. They’re incredibly reflective.

Mentally, oh, definitely it’s been a 10 of wands time, and it looks like the next 3 months won’t change much. Gorramit. I’m going to have to make shifting that a focus.

Physically, feeling fat and blech. Yup. Time to address that, too.

Financially, oh, I like this!!!! My greatest wish is that Hygge Lightwork gains footing and all the clients who need my help around the world find me.

Not too bad for an outlook, and coupled with my friend’s reading, it’s going to be an interesting few months!

May the rest of the month and year be good to you, and let’s set the intention that next year will be SO much better. Because I don’t know if I can take another year like this one. You?

Why Did I Choose “Hygge Lightwork”?

I recently mentioned hygge, a Danish word meaning “to give courage, comfort, joy” (*from Wikipedia, source noted below), a concept resonates so strongly within me. The more I thought about it, the more it felt connected to the healing work I do, and the heavens parted, the sun shone, and the angels sang!

Yeah, that was a bit over the top, I know, but it totally cracked me up to write it. 🙂

I’d written about something similar last year, and while the feeling was close, it didn’t quite nail it for me.  Also, whenever I mentioned ‘comfortcrafter’, people thought of Martha Stewart and scrapbooking and the like. Not at all what I was going for. What I am going for is this:

“Hygge Lightwork is bringing the feeling of hygge

to your body, mind, and soul using energy healing.”

That feeling of being at home, safe, warm, and peaceful, only energetically instead of outwardly. Does that make sense? It’s feeling that inside, without need of the warm socks, the flickering candles, the hot chocolate (I have hot chocolate on the brain today…need to buy more). It’s sleeping better, it’s the release of the tightness in your shoulders that you didn’t realize was there constantly, it’s being able to move because the migraine is gone: it’s that feeling of “ahhhhh.” That inner sigh when everything is just right. That is the feeling most people experience when receiving healing light (which I will now call hygge lightwork), and that’s the concept I want people to intuitively get when they find my website.

Here It Comes!

The new name!!!

Curtain, please…

HYGGE LIGHTWORK!!!

I’ll change the website address later today (the 8th), so don’t forget to follow the new name. Remember, it won’t redirect from ThisHobbitsLife to HyggeLightwork; you’ll have to do it yourself! ETA: the ever-wonderful WordPress support made it so that it does redirect!! Both names will be valid, so you can type in either and get where you need to be! Wooohoo!

Hygge on, everyone!! 🙂

Newsflash!!!

download

I’ve been thinking about this for a while, and the time has come to get some new life into this space! Next week (or maybe Saturday, I’m that excited) this website’s domain will change to a name that is oh-so-perfect, and you’ll have to follow that name because there will be no redirection from thishobbitslife as it will no longer exist.

I could have set it up so both names exist, but as I just paid for a new year, I’d rather not have to pay a another fee to keep both names. I’ll let you know the night before the change….I’m so excited I can barely keep from happy dancing all over the house…so you can follow the new name!

Oh, and my Twitter and Instagram account names will change, too.

With barely contained glee,

Pip 🙂

 

Hygge and This Hobbit

A while ago I came across a post by Dominee about Hygge, and I loved the concept. I didn’t know there was a name for something so comforting (isn’t there one for everything, though), and the idea has been stuck in my head ever since.

Yesterday at the library I came across “The Hygge Holiday” by Rosie Blake, and as with some other words, ‘hygge’ jumped out at me, and I brought it home. Devoured it in a few hours – it’s a cute romance, just what I needed after some heavy reading lately.

Now I won’t tell you what happens in the book, but there is an idea the main character has that must have burrowed its way into my head, because I couldn’t sleep last night and that idea blossomed into something pertaining to what I do, and I was so excited I don’t think I fell asleep til the wee hours of the morning.

You all know me; how I bounce from one thing to another, not in search of the perfect something, just in search of…

I found it. 🙂 As the month goes on, you’ll see little changes in my website and social media accounts. I’m so excited! This feels so very, very right!

With excitement,

Pip 🙂
