Welcome to January 2016 Newsletter
Happy New Year to you
The beginning of a new year can bring a mix of feelings and emotions. Some of us are excited about what the coming year will bring. Some of us, will be glad to see the back of 2015 as we hope, wish and dream for a brighter, happier, more abundant 2016.
Whatever you desire, know that this year you CAN achieve this and so much more.
New Year 2014 I set an intention. I intended that 2015 would be my best year yet. Well, I am delighted to be able to say; “It was”.
Usually at New Year, I would sit and write a list of all the things that I wanted to have, do, or be in the coming year. This time, I did something different.
I intended the outcome and left the details to my Soul Self.
By doing so, I knew I would fall into alignment with my Divine or Soul path.
What about destiny, fate, free will, I hear you say?!
Exactly, I knew that there was nothing I need do, other than intend that I would have the best year ever. I got out of my own way, as they say in Law of Attraction terms. I surrendered, I let go of any preconceived ideas about what I thought I should have, do, or be.
You see, I knew, my Soul knew what was best for me. I know this because I know my Soul and I are One.
My Soul has a larger perspective on my life (the bird’s eye view), it has an advantage that if we’re willing, it shares with us. In fact, it shares with us all of the time, but it’s up to us, to be aware and allow it.
Firstly, we have to know how to allow that connection. We have to tap into our inner heart centre, the place of connection to our emotional self. We have to acknowledge that connection to our Soul.
Once we have acknowledged that connection, by intention to do so, we must then learn to listen to the inner messages our Soul speaks.
It is worth noting here the definition of intention; ‘An intention is idea that you plan (or intend) to carry out. If you mean something, it’s an intention. Your goal, purpose, or aim is your intention. It’s something you mean to do, whether you pull it off or not.’
Our Soul speaks to us in whispers. We have to be ‘actively’ listening to the messages being transmitted. It’s in those moments of ‘just knowing’, having a hunch, gut feeling or, a sense that something feels right. This is when we are ‘listening’ to our Soul.
Our Soul responds to our tune and communicates clearly. We decipher these messages by allowing ourselves to experience the feelings that arise from within us. If something feels good, our soul is letting us know that we are on track with our thoughts, our desires. If our feelings are negative, they feel ‘off’ then our Soul is letting us know, this wouldn’t be the best option.
When we understand the language of our Soul, we shine. We love our lives, our work, our relationships with others. We love life.
When I started 2015, I had no idea that I would have travelled extensively, started a new business, met a wonderful man, loved every minute of my work, or had everything fall into place so wonderfully. This was stuff that happened to other people!
In the past, I’ve worked really hard at getting the things I wanted. I read the right books, talked to the right people, did everything I could to get the outcome I desired. That was before I totally handed it over to my Soul.
Who better to know our wants, needs and desires? Who better to listen to our endless cries for help? Who better to know our soul purpose and what we came to experience?
Of course, our Soul, the part of us that chosen the body that is You!
If you have the intention to hand everything over to your Soul, I wonder what changes you may look back on at the end of 2016?
Last year I held courses for people interested in connecting with their Soul. When we fully connect with our Soul, our Guide(s), our Higher or Divine Self, we flourish. We live in the moment and no matter whatever arises, we deal with it from a place of peace and understanding and we gain the wisdom to know the difference.
I have so very much enjoyed running workshops, courses and groups, which I have been doing for over 25 years.
2016 starts with two courses which are dear to my heart and bring so many positive changes to the lives of so many people.
You can find the details via the links below. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Awakening Your Light Body Online Course – Commencing: Anytime to suit
Divine Spiritual Group – Commencing Tuesday 12th January for 6 weeks
If you visit my website, you can sign up for my newsletter see upcoming events and testimonials from people who have taken the courses at www.jessicawoods.co.uk
Many of you may have been feeling or sensing a real, positive shift in the way you think, the way you are dealing with situations, people and events.
This is a time of great healing and those who are asking are lapping up the new vibrant energies that are pouring into us and our dimension at this time.
That doesn’t mean to say everything is spiffing and going really well on a practical, material level. In fact, it can mean that day-to-day things are a little squiffy!
Nevertheless, you can most likely feel, a change in the way you are viewing the situations, events and people in your life. Perhaps, with a more discerning eye. You may also find that some relationships will come to an end, and you will feel like you can breathe again, or for the first time!
Sending love and compassion to those who leave your life, enables you to move forward and attract people who ‘fit’ the new you. There is so much more fun to be had. There’s never been a better time than now.
Remember that you do not have to make the ‘other person’ wrong. You are not right either. It is just one of life’s natural transitions that happen. You wouldn’t always want to wear the same pair of shoes you had from years ago. Yes, they’ve served you well, yes, they have been comfortable, but there is nothing like a new pair of gorgeous shoes is there?
Maybe you are finding you are communicating with more clarity, getting your message across with a calmer, more understanding approach. Expect more of this this year.
Some of you will be working through physical problems that are lingering, as you clear old beliefs, old patterns from your energy systems. Know that you will come through it with a renewed sense of purpose, a stronger mind and a healthier body.
Talking of purpose, this year will bring many changes, some expected. Some unexpected. They may seem as if they have ‘come out of the blue’. Most likely though, they may have been brewing beneath the surface for some time.
This is a year of completion. A year of finishing up ‘old’ ways, habits and giving yourself the gift of stepping into a new, forever changing You.
How quickly you accept the forgoing changes will depend on your ability to be aware of your inner self. How well are you listening to your Soul, your inner guidance?
One thing for sure. Nothing lasts forever. Nor would you want it too, not really. As creatures of habit, we humans cling to the traditions and values we have grown so accustomed to. We think that change can be difficult and hard. It doesn’t have to be that way.
Your willingness to let go and, as my mother always said “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference” Quote: Reinhold Niebuhr.
May 2016 bring you all of these things and so much more.
I look forward to sharing some special moments with each and every one of you in person, in thought, in Divine love.

Carmen Alvarez Sandoval
Carmen Alvarez Sandoval is an experienced yoga and mindfulness teacher who has been practicing with clients for many years. Carmen has this to say about the retreat. “The purpose of my session is the participants feel relaxed and awake, more connected with the body and energized. Sometimes we feel disconnected from our bodies or reject or fight against some aspect of ourselves, including our body (because nothing exists outside of it and everything happens within it).
Even sometimes it may seem that our body is our worst enemy. If we want to improve our lives, we need to improve the relationship we have with our body. This we will achieve through body-mind work dialogue, energy breathing, position, stability, balance, joint elasticity and drop-relaxation. We will use different types of techniques from: Psichology, Breathing techniques, Stretching, Chi-Kung, Meditation and Yoga Asanas”.
