Take your time

“Take rest; a field that has rested gives a beautiful crop.”
~ Ovid

Welcome 2024!

Just because the calendar page is now flipped into a new year does not mean you need to rush into action.

I spent more than 12 months preparing professionally for this year, diving deep into advanced trainings for integrating and flourishing from the new energy of the world we are now in. (New tools and approaches for manifesting your best life are incorporated into my programs detailed at the end of this newsletter.)

For now, I’m using the beginning weeks of January to “nest in compassion” and exquisite self-care before moving at a faster, more focused pace again. Transformation is exhausting work.

I invite you this month to honor the rhythms of nature, go inward, and spend some time in solitude and reflection instead of quickly initiating all the goal-setting initiatives advocated at the start of a new year.

You may have new dreams percolating or ready to launch, while your “old life” is still unraveling. Sit with both. Conflicting emotions are OK; they are often a sign of growth.

Like many animals that hibernate in the winter to conserve energy, you also deserve to rest.

Begin by taking an inventory of all you have lived through this past year. Embrace your lessons, challenges, and growth spurts with compassion. Create an inventory of your physical and emotional assets. Include the gifts you, your unique essence, offer this world.

Then, intentionally choose to live a life of gratitude, no matter what your future plans may entail. Gratitude is a necessary foundation from which to manifest anew and live your most vibrant life.

Dedicate one hour of self-care to truly absorb this inspiring podcast, which is chock-full of gems of wisdom from my interview with Kristi Nelson, author of Wake Up Grateful. Her insights are sure to enhance your relationships, deepen your joy and appreciation of life, and expand you in many other significantly loving ways — as they did for me!

Also, check out Elizabeth Barbour’s beautifully uplifting book, Sacred Celebrations, which helps readers navigate life’s milestones and transitions. In chapter 14, I share several rituals that helped in my healing journey and beyond.

Moving forward

Take time to get very clear and specific. You cannot grow your life or business if you don’t know what you’re aiming for. This is not idle time; it’s soul time, to get aligned with WHO you truly are and what you are becoming.

Rest, beyond rejuvenating, helps fuel creativity and refine ideas. Follow up respite with inspired actions. Thoughtfully choose the right people and opportunities that are ALIGNED with your values and ways of being.

To help you grow into the fullest version of yourself this year,
I am offering three programs:
1) “Expand Your Vision: Live Your Best Life.”

  • THE NEW LIFE BOARD: Back by popular demand (and further enhanced by my latest trainings in shifting to higher levels of consciousness and energy), this unique vision LIFE board offering incorporates the latest in neuroscience, with customized, specific words and phrases that accelerate manifestation of dreams and goals. I teach this 1:1 and I am also hired to teach this inspiring and motivating process at businesses, organizations, and community groups. (One company hired me to teach their leadership team, a local retailer is collaborating with me to host “a ladies’ night” focused on helping customers create a new vision board, and a friend asked me to present at her over 55-membership community.)
  • THE LOVE BOARD, whether you are single looking for love (and that includes within yourself), growing or deepening a relationship, or repairing/improving the ones you are in (with friends or significant others), learn key words, images and tools that will help you shift to more loving ways of interacting with yourself and others. The more we love ourselves, the more highly magnetic we become in attracting what we desire in all areas of life

2) The Worthy Code ™, my six-session foundational program for transforming your life at the core level, replacing limits of early life conditioning with a new mindset for thriving. In addition to teaching my clients this proprietary model, I have trained coaches globally on using The Worthy Code to transform their lives and also guide their clients accordingly. I love coaching coaches!

3) NEW This Year,  “Born To Be Alive,” an 8-session, four-month program for claiming your gifts, authenticity, and creating and maintaining a RECEPTIVE, MAGNETIZING energetic state of being, that attracts right outcomes TO YOU (an advanced program for those who have worked with me before).

To set up a complimentary, 30-minute coaching session to see which program may be a fit for you, email gailjones@claimyourworthiness.com. Please put the word “COACHING” in the subject line.

And here is my wish for each of you in 2024:

“Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.” ~ Rumi

Happy New Year!

With love and gratitude,
