Reflecting on 2015, and my 2016 Happiness Plan

In my search for tools to start my 2016 off right, and reflect on 2015, I came across these printable from the Happiness Planner. They have a planner for 2016, but as I’ve just purchased a new organiser, I might end up buying one of their 100 Days planners – 100 days of thought provoking pages and journalling. I’m thinking different about my organisation for next year – I want something that will make me think, be grateful and reflect, not just something to write down my day to day plans.

The printable at the Happiness Planner website feature some thought provoking stuff – 1,3, 5 year plans for the future, highs and lows of 2015, 2016 vision board, a bucket list, etc. So as 2015 draws to a close, I’ll be printing these off and probably surprising myself as I fill them in. I’ll keep them safe and check in on them throughout the year, so I can see how I’m doing and remind myself of where I’m going.

How to: New Moon Abundance Cheques

One of the most important rituals at Ruby Wren each month is writing our abundance cheques. Each New Moon, we take a blank cheque and use it as a tool to summon good stuff into our lives. I’m a firm believer in the power of positive thinking and believe that by writing an abundance cheque, you release your intention out into the universe. If you’ve ever heard of the law of attraction (like attracts like), you’ll already know the belief that by putting in ‘an order’ for abundance, you’ll receive it.

By writing an abundance cheque within 24 hours of a new moon, you summon abundance into your life. It can be abundance of any form – abundance of wealth, health, happiness, or whatever you need most. It may sound a bit unbelievable, but give it a go! I was pleasantly surprised at just how well it worked. You can believe that it’s the universe giving you what you ask for, or that by completing an abundance cheque your subconscious notices your intentions…either way, we’ve come to believe that this ritual has real power! If things are a little quiet, some times we realise that we’ve missed a new moon cheque…sounds silly, I know, but we like to believe in magic over here at RW HQ!

To make it easy for you to start your own abundance cheque ritual, we’ve made our own free downloadable cheques. Just pop your name into the ‘pay’ section, and the date if you wish (some people prefer to leave this blank so not to give the universe a set deadline) and keep it somewhere safe. We’ve read conflicting instructions what to do with old cheques once the month has passed, but I like to keep mine all together in a keepsake box (I think it’s nice to see old cheques and have gratitude for the good things that have happened in those months). Other people like to burn theirs once the new moon comes around again before creating a new cheque…it’s up to you!

Let us know how you get on! We use the Lunaf website here to find out the current moon phase and plan our cheque-writing.
