You are alive on planet Earth at this moment.
If you really think about it, that should be enough to make you float through the year. But wait!
There's more. You have unique traits and talents. Things you were born with and things you cultivated. These "gifts" are to delight you,
and others if you choose to share them.
Make a list of the things you excel at.
From being a good friend to being a great cook to being a guardian angel. Your heart knows the truth! Don't be shy.
Look at yourself the way a best friend would.
List your gifts - at least 2 dozen!
Feel what it feels like to be you.
Do you want to be more patient? Get along better with family? Do you need to be kinder to yourself? Make time for joy? Clean out the attic?
We never get to finish it all, but the list helps set our sails. Outline what you'd like to accomplish this year. Put thoughts on paper.
What can you invite in? Now.
Take a look at your willingness.
You may want something but not yet be willing to do the work or make the changes to have it.
And that is OK!!! Set yourself up for success by allowing yourself to be aware of your willingness. Not everything has to happen right now...
I've been studying Italian since 1978.
I've been trying to lose 10 pounds for 5 years. Today, I want every room in my house painted! These are wishes I am leaning toward, but I am not committed to making these things happen yet.
I have been committed to going deeper into my coaching and reiki practice. That's been my focus.
What is the big thing your heart is calling for now ?
What is the dream you can commit to?
Marry it. Make this wish your best friend.
Enter into partnership with this idea.
Think of it less as a mountain to climb
and more of a companion to walk with.
Somewhere in your home, let there be a space where your heart and soul can be free. A place where the divine can wait for you. Maybe you have an entire room for meditation, journaling and prayer. Or maybe you have to jump into a bubble bath to get a moment's privacy.
Create tiny oases in your home where your eyes can fall on peace...where your heart knows there is connection waiting for you.
Invite the Divine in. Make It comfortable.
What can you let go off to create more space for the Divine?
There will be uninvited guests and surprises.
What if we didn't push against them?
What if we didn't try to control the wind?
We feed every situation with our energy.
Spend your energy tending to your heart's desires and allowing the unexpected to simply be.
Say "yes" to what appears and you may be pleasantly surprised!
Trust more, fear less.
What can you stop protesting?
What can you allow to be?
How can you preserve your energy for what you truly love?
Another list, please! Remember all the things you have accomplished this past year.
Not just the projects, but the soulful growth you have allowed in.
Give yourself another 2 dozen examples of
things that made you smile!
What are the little things you want to remember? Review each month in your mind.
List the things that warm your heart.
Feel the energy of those good things.
The energy of the good never leaves us.
Feel the echo of all that is ringing through you.
