What Is Your Word of The Year?


We believe words have the power to cast your reality. Here is a practice to guide you in selecting your word of the year to guide you through the seasons of 2024.

At #WeAllGrow, we believe words play a powerful role in creating the reality that we desire. With 2024 energy already dropping inklings of the blank slate that is being paved out, we have a practice called the ‘Word of the Year’ that is beautiful to create your new reality. The idea is selecting one word that you will carry with you throughout the year to serve as your north star. No matter the winds around you, the word anchors you as you continue to design your dream life.

If you’re having a hard time determining what that one word is, review the steps we’ve set out for you below to find your perfect word for 2024.

How to Choose Your Word of the Year

Reflect on the past year 

Reviewing your last year is an essential part of creating a clear vision for 2024. Taking the time to assess what transpired during those months makes us aware of just how much we’ve grown, and cycles we don’t want to repeat. Doing this intentionally clears out space for you to build your dreams in 2024. Below are a few questions to support you in the reflections process:

  • What challenged you?
  • What empowered you? 
  • How did you grow?

Set your intentions 

Now that you’ve taken some time to reflect, we can begin determining what we desire to call more of into this new year. Is there a theme to the dreams you are envisioning for the new year?How do you want to show up in the world in the coming year? What do you want to manifest? Allow your imagination to run wild, and do not limit yourself. The act of dreaming big is an opportunity for the collective to dream a new way forward. Begin writing your intentions.

Tune into your intuition

 Find a peaceful space in your home or out in nature where you can connect deeply with yourself. Ground into the dreams and visions you’ve written down and allow your spirit to connect with the frequency of that new life you’re calling in. Breathe deeply, allow your mind to settle, and allow an empowering word to bubble up from within. Don’t force it, it will arrive. You just need to be open to receiving it. If you find yourself meeting a blank, ask yourself what word have you heard that makes you feel something?

Feel the resonance 

Once you’ve settled on a word or two, ask yourself: Does your word give you chills? Does it align with your growth intentions? Sit with it for a few days and write it in your journal. “My word of the year is ________.”

Declare your word 

Share it aloud daily, create art with it, and anchor it into your consciousness and 2024 journey. This word will guide you as we navigate the seasons that 2024 will surely offer.
