Happy New Year!
I hope you had a wonderful holiday season. As we gracefully move into 2016, it’s the perfect time to hit the reset button and think about what we want in the year ahead. While you may have tried the whole “New Year’s resolutions” thing in the past – which most likely failed because you were being too strict with yourself – I’d like to invite you to try a much more awesome approach to welcoming the new year – DREAM.
You see, the resolution thing is really no fun. It usually involves some sort of a declaration that you’re going to do this or that or give up something (that you probably enjoy) and when you don’t follow through with your word, you end up feeling guilty, anxious, or frustrated with yourself. Totally counterintuitive to your probable desired feelings.
So how about trying a little manifestation magic this time around? Instead of setting limitations on yourself, just dream. Sit down with a pen and paper and make a list of what you really want for yourself this year. Think through every detail of what you desire for every area of your life – health and body, career, finances, relationships, and personal desires. Also note how having these things in your life will make you feel. You can be as specific and detailed as you like, but don’t worry about how you’re going to get what you want. The “how” will be done after you get really clear about what’s possible for yourself.
I did this exercise last year and when I recently reflected on my pages of written dreams, I was surprised at how many things had come to fruition. This is also how I begin every Discovery Session with my clients. My first question is always “What do you want?” And it’s always amazing to see what manifests in their lives after working together for a series of sessions.
You are more powerful than you know. I encourage you to put some time and thought into what would make you the happiest person alive this year. Know that you are worthy and deserve the very best!
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” – Marianne Williamson
