When we are ready to embark on a new beginning in our life, it is important for us to know upfront what we are willing and ready to invest to make those new beginnings successful and graceful. Our investment in this new beginning, similar to how we experience life, should be holistic in approach. Ideally, the holistic will integrate practical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and magical investments. If you have already attempted this new beginning before or something similar, please also reflect on how your holistic investment will be different than before, and if your investment before was indeed holistic in approach.

Keep in heart and mind that whether or not, this is the first attempt at this new beginning, disciplined practices of authentic self-love, self-compassion, and patience will be invaluable for many reasons. When I say self-love, I don’t mean being selfish to the point where we are engaging in unhealthy manipulative patterns and practices with others, especially with people we claim we love. I mean authentic self-love, where our sense of self-worth and self-care is truly not contingent on others.

The emotional investment should involve a feeling of knowing that we are hundred percent worthy and deserve graceful and ideal new beginnings. Mantras of our most beloved attributes are incredibly helpful to rewire or further rewire our mental thought processes of knowing and acting on our worthiness. The mental investment should ideally include setting aside periods for mental rest and engaging in mental activities that complement the new beginning, preferably when we are at our mental “A” game for these activities. The spiritual investment should be something that bolsters our faith in ourselves, and our new beginning.

As for the magical investment, there is beautiful magic all around us, and reflected in nature and us. When we open our hearts to this beautiful magic and engage in simple or elaborate ceremonies of magic, we open a greater door to divine intervention and attracting ideal synchronicities. The practical investment should interweave all the other investments, and include how we integrate these practices in a way that makes sense in our personal lives.

So if you are ready to embark on a new beginning in your life, take some time to reflect on your holistic investments, what you are ready and willing to do. Once you begin to put these holistic investments into practice you may find that you need to adjust your approaches and strategies, so be compassionate, loving, and patient with yourself in this process. Most importantly, don’t stop, keep going. You got this!
