Most of us are accustomed to setting goals for the new year, but this year, I’m inviting you to Choose Your Focus. When you decide on a particular focus, your life will line up around this energy, and you will be able to meet your goals anyway.

Choose a goal that works well for both your personal and professional life. In other words, serentity is a great focus and would work everywhere in your life. Focusing on listening would work well both at home and at work. Focusing on feeling connected would also work well in your personal and professional life.

What if you chose a focus of clarity, gratitude, or generosity? If you could focus on one of these themes all year, by the end of twelve months, you would have likely reached your goals! Imagine if you chose freedom as a focus, or relief, or peace – what an amazing year you would have!

Choosing a focus is like choosing a unifying principle that you appreciate and want to live by as much as possible in your daily life. What is most important to you as a unifying theme? As most of you already know, gratitude and clarity are my two top themes I always choose for my attention and focus. And I am setting an intention for the New Year to focus on those themes yet again. When I focus on gratitude and clarity, everything works better, and abundance flows into my life as well.

Do you think you have any blocks to choosing a particular focus as an uderlying theme for the New Year? See if any of these doubts came up for you:

  • I can’t get clear enough to choose…
  • I don’t want to lose out on other options.
  • I don’t know if my focus is good enough.
  • I don’t really know what’s most important to me…

If some of these doubts surfaced for you when I suggested you Choose Your Focus for the New Year, they could of course be folded into targets for tapping sequences.

How do you actually Choose Your Focus for the New Year? Ask yourself some key questions:

  • What do I really want? (Freedom? Clarity?)
  • What would make my life truly easier? (Trust? Faith?)
  • If I had more of this, would it make “serving” easier? (Joy?)
  • What would help me in every area of my life? (Gratitude?)

When you Choose Your Focus for the New Year, the universe “hears” that you have a strong intention to focus on a unifying theme. You will communicate the message to the universe that you have passion and clarity and that you intend to weave your focus into all areas of your life.

Our thoughts, feelings and behaviors carry energy…

Our vibration matters!

When you are ready to Choose Your Focus for the New Year, you will notice how much abundance starts showing up for you. When you are deeply focused on one positive theme, it clarifies what energy you want to draw into your life, and the universe will support you in new and surprising ways by opening up new channels of abundance.

Below you will find EFT/Tapping setup phrases to help you be inspired to release your blocks to being able to attract what you want into your life.

When you change your vibration,
you will change your life.

Go ahead, raise your vibration
by being inspired to
Choose Your Focus



While tapping the karate chop spot on either hand, repeat these first phrases out loud, (or change the words to fit your exact situation). Then proceed to the additional phrases while tapping on the indicated points. (If you are new to EFT, please view information and directions.)

The EFT SETUP Phrases for this topic are as follows:

“Even though I’m not sure what I really want, I accept and appreciate all my feelings anyway.”
