2013 brings the promise of what is to come and a reminder of what an array of choices we have for the next twelve months!
Make 2013 a focused time to let go of what no longer serves you and holds you to your past thinking and life’s challenging moments, Releasing and letting go gives you freedom to move to the bright and shiny future awaiting you.
So many of us make resolutions for the new year, i.e., eat right, exercise or vow to change our evil ways. But what if we all do something else this year?
What if we all simply make an intention to be kind: to focus on shining our light as it was meant to be shared during our time here on earth. What if our goal is to radiate loving kindness to ourselves and to all we are in contact with? It can be as simple as that!
Begin with yourself. Intend to be loving and kind to yourself first, asking yourself what you need. What do I what? What do I feel today? How can I feel peace? What direction do I go? We are not asking in an ego narcissistic manner, but instead focus on keeping peace and harmony within so that you can shine and radiate it to all. We can move closer to our oneness, our true selves, and our fate and destiny with simplicity and purity of intention.
We All Are George Baileys
During Christmas week I watched It’s a wonderful Life with my children. We all were snuggled together under a blanket, watching as George Bailey’s life was reviewed and seeing how much his life touched others. What an amazing gift he got from Clarence the angel. George Bailey had the chance to witness how intertwined all of our lives are with each other and what a gap there would be if one of us wasn’t present.
The Wisdom of Joseph Campbell
“We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us.” This Joseph Campbell quote is simply put… letting go of how we want things to be. George Bailey wanted to travel the world and get out of Bedford Falls, but he was meant for a larger life, even though he viewed it as being small.
We too must move forward in faith, knowing that letting go is living in the flow and what is waiting for us is usually beyond our expectations.
Personally, letting go of 2012 is a process of feeling and releasing, and being present for a year that was filled with challenges and heartbreak. Over the course of the last twelve months I asked myself “didn’t you learn anything from your past?” But this was the wrong question to be asking. What I should have been asking was “What do I need?” Focusing on creation and manifestation is the key to freedom.
So what is your intention for this year?
Does keeping it resonate peace within you?
In that spirit, I want to let you know that over the next twelve months I will be offering a complimentary downloadable weekly tip for Keeping it Simple! With focusing on the flow of love, we can change our world. More to come on this new offering!
Wishing you and yours a blessed New Year! With all the promise of greatness!
