I've heard people say the veil is thin in places like hospitals since so many souls are straddling two worlds. It's one of the reasons they can be uncomfortable to visit. 

There's nothing to distract you from your own mortality and potential loss. There's no filter between you and the greatest love that exists - the perfect kind of love that we came from, and where we'll return. 

In our daily lives, the pettiness and the "stuff" we build around ourselves shield us from having to face these universal truths. The saying "the devil's in the details" is correct. Details are the easiest way for us to forget our true selves.

To stay as close to the truth as possible, to pursue worthy goals and keep what's essential at heart, I'm choosing a word for 2017.

My word for 2017 is Ignite. 

The best way to clear away distractions is to light them on fire. 

Need courage to begin? 
Switch on the ignition. 

Worried about what others think? 
Burn up your desire to please everyone. 

Forgotten who you are? 
You are the flame.


  1. What an exciting word to guide you through 2017! May you look back at the end of it and see yourself burning brightly. Happy New Year!

    1. Thank you! Exciting is right. Happy New Year to you, too!


I would love to hear what you think!
