Start Your New Year Devoted to Yourself … 3 questions to make goals that make you happy

Watch this video & get the 3 questions to ask your heart and soul so you create a year you LOVE – its a new year self-love meditation!

It can be hard to hear your heart and soul – it can feel daunting, and you can get stuck in your brain real fast. And you can also short circuit yourself because of fear. Which is why I invented this AWESOME LOVE FILLED GAME for finding your Heart & Soul Goals, and creating a year motivated by LOVE not pressure, fear or lack.

I’ve been playing this game all week — with Noah, at dinner with friends, even with my 11 year old goddess daughter – she loved it!

The game is based on 3 core questions that help you connect to what YOU truly desire to do, so you create a year devoted to your happiness and success instead of creating more stress for yourself, or creating goals that just make it so you have more to do!

Here are the inquiries… tune into your heart and ask:

1. What do I desire to START?
2. What do I desire to STOP?
3. Who do I desire to CONTINUE?

Then to bring these to life take a stand to devote this year to YOUR HAPPINESS and SUCCESS!


“In Devotion to MYSELF,” in 2015, I choose to START… STOP… CONTINUE…

Here’s mine….

In 2015, In devotion to myself, I choose to…

START writing thought provoking, heart opening articles that shine a light on the tremendous amount of pressure we all feel… and to shine a light on a new way of being that is more sustainable for us all.

STOP working through the beautiful sunsets right out side my door – they are too beautyful to miss!

CONTINUE creating self-love art that I love and that opens other peoples hearts

Now your turn… post it here on the blog.

  1. Rebekah

    My answer surprised me. I choose to start loving (a man). I choose to stop stressing. And I choose to continue loving myself. I wasn’t going to post here but I kept feeling nudged, so. . .

  2. Lela

    In 2015, in devotion to myself I choose to…
    Start living my life based on my own desires and needs rather than trying to make other people happy, and catering to what I believe others expect of me. I choose to start believing in the power of my dreams again.
    Stop succumbing to the negativity of my own thoughts and the negative energy of those around me. I choose to stop being scared of the future and the possibility of failure.
    Continue to find solace in my meditation practice and listen to the divine within to help guide me on the next stage of my journey.
    Thank you Christine for this thought provoking exercise!!

    Hello Christine! Such a great video as per usual – thank you 🙂
    That mini meditation before presenting the questions was incredibly powerful. I was really surprised at how basic my desires had become compared to previous lofty goals:
    I choose to start living a less anxious life
    I choose to stop letting emotional people control me
    I choose to continue cultivating intimate relationships
    Thank you! Much Love, Evie

    1. Christine Arylo Post author

      Kate – inviting you to change the “WANT” to “CHOOSE” … we can want something but without choosing it, we dont have the devotion to actually commit to it and make it so. SO yes to you being the creative self you are and receiving lots of nourishment! xo

  18. Mandi

    I choose to start loving myself more. Have more faith in my path. Make time for myself to do things I painting, guitar, yoga, and meditation. Relax and enjoy myself more and remember I am good enough as I am. Loving others more without attachment & conditions.

    I choose to.. Stop drinking for a social life and having “fun.” Stop worrying about my past and my future.Stop worrying so much period. Stop eating gmo foods and meat that comes from farms that hurt that is toxic to my body even when it’s common. Stop feeling unworthy and believe I am worthy of good things. Stop listening to music/watching TV that also isn’t a good influence on myself and others. And stop beating myself up for my flaws. Stop being afraid of sharing who I am if it doesn’t mirror what others think.

    I choose to continue to detox my body of toxins with the MC..meditate, have gratitude, walk my puppy, read books that feed my soul with truth, hope, love, and courage and watch that does the same. And continue to smile even though it gets hard and the world isn’t being lead by those creating safety and truth…do what I can to create that and forget all the hype that leads people away from what really matters.. Love, truth, and justice.

    1. Christine Arylo Post author

  20. Jodi

    I choose to start…. a new awesome & blessed chapter in my daughter’s & my life. Move to a warmer place with a fabulous job & my daughter to start a new school she loves & does great at with new friends & loving our new lives. Staying connected to the supportive awesome loving people already in our lives.

  26. Sherrill

    START feeling safe in my own life, that I will be provided for in my work, relationships and home.

    STOP being triggered by people who do not deserve energy from me, and create negativity and lower my self love.

    CONTINUE to grow and learn in my ability to self care and believe in myself.

  27. Rhonda

    Start exploring the hobbies that I keep meaning to get around to, and maybe a few others too until I find one that I am passionate about.

    Stop wasting my time mindlessly sitting on the couch vegging out. Even though I can be tired at the end of the day moving makes me feel better.

    Continue surrounding myself with people who feel good. Those already in the circle and those I have yet to meet and continue to distance myself from those who drain me

  28. Patricia

    In Devotion to myself I choose to:
    START by totally committing myself to transforming my fears to LOVE by listening closely to my heart whispers.
    STOP listening to the idle chatter of “not being good enough” from myself and others.
    Continue to welcome all the spiritual assignments that come my way that allow me to choose LOVE first.

    1. Christine Arylo Post author

      Whoo hoo Patricia – seeing you receivign all that spirit has to bless you with and what a gift to yourself to remove the idle chatter so you can hear the truth of just how loved and enough you are. xo

  29. Rhonda
