Reflections & Manisfestations – #reverb10

I just signed up for a really cool online event called reverb 10.  It’s described on their website as…

…an annual event and online initiative to reflect on your year and manifest what’s next. The end of the year is an opportunity to reflect on what’s happened, and to send out reverberations for the year ahead. With Reverb 10, we’ll do both.

Every day for the month of December, a prompt will be posted on the reverb10 site. Participants respond to the prompts with a post on their blogs – you can write a response, use a picture or respond via a Tweet. Then we all share our reverberations on the inter-webs. You can even participate offline and privately journal your responses.

Why Did I sign up?

Because…

  • I am an inveterate “joiner”
  • this year has not turned out the way I imagined and there is a great deal for me to reflect upon
  • given the challenges I’ve experienced this year, I am eager to put my energy into manifesting something different for 2011
  • I want to do more writing but left to my own devices I am an undisciplined writer. I’m hoping that the structure of being given a daily prompt will incentivize  me in to writing  everyday
  • I believe in the power of writing as a gateway to our own wisdom, and what I need more than anything right now is to tap into that inner wisdom so I can get out of my own damn way!

This whole process reminds me  lot of the beloved writing group which I haven’t been to for far too long. You get a prompt, you write, and  you share. It’s  an incredibly powerful process and I’m interested to see how this massive virtual version will work for me. When I signed up today there were already 781 people registered – that’s a whole lot of reverberation!

So, I shall return later on with my response to the first prompt. I need to write it when I have a little quiet time later today.

Till then…
