Last night I had a dream where I created a detailed list of what I wanted to manifest in 2015. It was strangely specific so when I woke up this morning and remembered it, I felt I should share it with you.
First I’d like to thank my dream for getting me back on the writing train! It’s been five months, almost to the day, since I published my last blog. Life has been a whirlwind: I started a new job at an awesome local nonprofit, I’ve grown my career intuitive coaching practice, and I’ve started my last year at my master’s program in spiritual psychology (and I’m commuting out to Los Angeles one weekend a month for classes!). It has been intense but I’m learning a lot and trying to stop and look around once in a while. :)
So back to my dream… I woke up this morning with a very clear action step for myself (and for you, if you’re interested!) to create a 2015 “wish list” to the Universe that consists of 32 total wishes, broken down as follows:
categories of your life in which you’d like to make changes
(i.e. home, love life, career, family, etc.)
“wishes” within each category
(2 wishes for what you want to release from your life and
2 for what you want to create or gain in your life)
total wishes (or intentions) for 2015
Can you tell I’m a numerology gal? ;)
The reason I love this seemingly simple formula is because it provides a solid structure and discipline for my sometimes flailing and unclear desires. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed with what to pursue first in my life. Should I focus on my relationship? Or my career? Or my home and location? There are so many things I want to improve or expand upon that it’s sometimes hard to get myself focused enough to take action towards any of it.
Sometimes we need a little structure and discipline in our lives in order to experience the freedom and joy that we desire.
Sounds like an oxymoron doesn’t it? Aren’t discipline and structure the opposite of freedom and joy? Nope! They’re actually quite intertwined.
It turns out that getting ourselves organized, making and fulfilling commitments to ourselves and to others, and increasing our joyful discipline actually lead to more space and freedom in all aspects of our lives! Who knew?
Fulfilling commitments can include completing incomplete items on our to-do lists, fulfilling promises we’ve made to ourselves and others, and also letting go of past commitments that we no longer want to fulfill. This clearing out of physical, emotional, and energetic “clutter” from our lives creates beautiful space for new blessings and positive surprises to flow in.
The first step on the path to joyful discipline and freedom is getting clear on our desires. In comes my brilliant formula: 8 x 4 = 32. Sounds so simple but from a numerology perspective it makes total sense. The numerological meaning of the number 8 is empowerment and success (and 2015 is also an 8 Year in numerology!!); number 4 means discipline, practicality and hard work; and number 32 adds up to 5 (3+2=5) which means freedom, movement, and change!
The little Divine guides that were dancing around in my dream last night knew what they were doing!
Empowering yourself to be Joyfully Disciplined in all areas of your life is the formula for experiencing true Freedom and Positive Change!!
Damn! I am loving this on so many levels! (especially my inner math nerd who is jumping for joy!) :)
It doesn’t need to be hard. I’ve created a simple chart (with examples) for you to just print out and fill in the blanks for your own life. First fill in the chart to get clear on exactly what you want for yourself in 2015, and then get joyfully disciplined about creating it!
Cheers to Clarity, Joyful Discipline, and Freedom in 2015! :) Let me know how it goes in the comments below!
Yours in Math Problems and Fulfilled Dreams,
p.s. Be gentle with yourself throughout this process—it doesn’t all have to be done today. Full disclosure I originally wrote this blog on 12/27th and didn’t get around to doing the process for myself or publishing it until today. It’s all good-- we rock anyway!! :)

Beautifully said, Tina. Joyful discipline is so much easier when you understand not only your life path, but the energy you chose to accomplish your mission. The numbers are like road signs pointing us in the right direction and confirming our deepest intuition. You can have a gut instinct about something, and the numbers back up that instinct. I love the combination of 8 and 4 in your dream. We very often want to skip over the work of the 4 energy and go straight to the abundance energy of the 8. Your dream reminds us that the two go hand in hand, and that we can be joyous as we WORK to fulfill our mission, which will lead us to the most fulfilling abundance, which is the satisfaction of a job well done and executed with passion. I too had another whopper of a dream a few nights ago, and the overall message was to slow down and to have better focus and discipline rather than trying to accomplish everything at once. As a result, I have decided to let some things go for now and to take a very methodical approach to managing my very often conflicting priorities. I am quite happy to do this because I know that this discipline will lead to greater success. I'd call that joyful discipline.

It's a year late, but I love this post and the process. I feel better just knowing I have a structure for thinking about my priorities in a manageable way. I'm going to do the worksheet! Thanks for sharing!
