A Wish for 2017
Every New Years Eve, I set my intentions for the coming year. Some people call it “Vision Mapping” but I have always called it creating a “Wish Collage”.
I have been doing this for more than twenty years now and the results continue to amaze me…
My 2016 Wish Collage

You can see that I use both words and pictures, to invite the qualities I wish to embrace for the year ahead.
My 2016 key words included new directions, lightworker, self belief, find balance and an income, getting creative again, world traveller, centre yourself, natural beauty.
I have an angel holding my hand to guide me on my journey, a box of healthy fruit and vegetables, some seaside images, flowers, dancing ladies, a woman praying and last but not least a book cover.
It has been an incredibly exciting year with lots of growth and new beginnings, including:
- Taking a blogging course and starting a blog,
- Leaving my old job teaching Organic Horticulture in schools,
- Self publishing my book,
- Linking with LOTS of new friends through my blog,
- Linking with LOTS of new and old friends through social media…
I have prayed a lot as always, and I know my guardian angels have helped me all along the way.
I danced wildly at a Bryan Adams concert in May, a wedding in August, a good friends 60th birthday party in September…
I had a beautiful holiday by the seaside in August, which exceeded all expectations, and I have also spent a good number of days by the beach in Donegal – in all weathers!
Preparations for my 2017 Wish Collage
My 2017 Wish Collage
I will share my wish collage for 2017, created on New Years Eve.
I gathered :
- A number of magazines,
- A sheet of thick paper,
- A stained glass angel,
- A pale blue candle.
I lit my candle, setting an intention for a year of both creativity and gentleness; I entered into meditative mode.
Leafing through my magazines I cut out the pictures which inspired me most, together with words which resonated with my spirit.
My 2017 images and words
Once I was happy with the results, they were glued onto my sheet of paper, trimmed and placed in a frame.
My 2017 wish collage
My keywords for 2017 are spread the joy, enjoy the journey, ideas, events inspiring heart, mind and soul, shine on, healing inspiration and books to soothe the soul.
My images include an open doorway surrounded by flowers, a plate of healthy food, more flowers and a lady enjoying a relaxing massage!
In both collages, I have left space around each image to allow for unexpected blessings.
I wonder how 2017 will unfold?
