New Year’s Intentions

As I look back at 2010 with my preverbal 20/20 vision, I see a year that for all appearances may have exuded chaos and confusion. We have watched as many of the institutions held dear, shimmied and shook and some even collapsed. 

In addition, many have experienced personal challenges that they initially found insurmountable.   However, what we have also seen, is the human spirit rise to the forefront and thousands found within them, new strengths, opportunities and creative juices that rooted and took flight.

Many of these personal revelations wouldn’t have ordinarily had an occasion to surface had they not been stimulated by the catalysts demanding it.  The old adage,   ……is the mother of invention, has taken on new meaning as we have embraced these new demands.  

In an essence, 2010 has been a year of ‘laboring’  a powerful  ‘becoming’, in preparation for the rebirth that is upon us now for 2011 and 2012.

2011 is said to be a year of preparation for the consciousness shifts expected in 2012, and certainly everything we have seen, points to that phenomenal occurrence.  What then does it demand of us and how can we best prepare for these shifts to come?  

My 1st suggestion is that we do an inner inspection and determine what no longer serves us and needs to be left behind, sending it off in gratitude. These can be traditions, relationships, belief systems, memories, in essence, anything no longer ‘working for us’.

One of these immediate changes concerns the tradition of making New Years resolutions. This tradition in my opinion, has hindered us rather than help us! My suggestion instead, is rather than a New Years resolution, we begin this New Year with a clarity, and setting of intention!  Exactly what is the difference?  Energetically, they are worlds apart!

A resolution is often based upon looking back and the notion that you have somehow fallen short of a certain previously determined expectation.  That sense of falling short, often is accompanied by the energies of guilt, not being good enough, not being competent, not measuring up, disappointment for self and others, etc., etc. 

These energies have a density and a sluggish frequency which one could liken to attempting to pedal backwards with a disengaged chain on our bicycle and expect it to heave us forward at the same time!  It’s just not going to work.  

 In actuality, we then enter into our New Year with a sense that we are failures.  This energy serves NO ONE!!!!!  This is why so often, people describe being right back into previous patterns, soon after the New Year arrives.  The energy carried with them from the past is not only permeating their present energy field, but is being perpetuated as they focus on their ‘failures’ and continue to attempt to right them.

Intentions on the other hand, are based on the power of the present, are used to create our future and catapult forward as they are free of any density from the past.

They are born of clear, fresh,  desires of the heart and are fueled each and every time that we focus only on what we want to create and experience and take the actions that are in alignment with that goal.

They are attached to what brings us joy, excitement, fulfillment and contentment. Our intentions, get wings and take flight as we envision ourselves, our loved ones, and our situations coming into alignment with the natural sense of freedom and abundance that is our very nature.

So this New Years, and the weeks ahead, remind yourself to bless your past…thank it for all it has taught you, for the opportunities it provided for you to grow, learn  and expand your awareness. Thank it for how it has finely polished you into a better version of you in a way you could never have imagined previously.  Thank it for all of the people who came into and out of your life to help you accomplish that mission of growth that is so important to revealing your soul’s purpose. Remind yourself that there is perfection in all of it and celebrate its manifestations, regardless of how they have appeared or are appearing now.  Remind yourself that all of life and its coming s and goings are temporary and simply let you off at the next stop until you are ready to ‘board a new bus’ and take a new ride!

Set your intentions, readdress them as time goes on and determine if your actions are in alignment with them or even if they still ‘feel good’ and continue to serve your highest good and desires.

Practice visualizing your desires and breathe life into them seeing them already being in your life and practice feeling how fabulous they are and how happy you are with these changes!

Put into place the systems and support systems for getting you from point A to point B and every point thereafter fostering your success.

Above all, strive to remain in the ‘now’ so that you will have all of the energy needed for your successful manifestations completely accessible to you at all times.  

These actions are the greatest gifts of ‘self love’ that you can give and when you do, the impact on your CELLpH, will result in great health, happiness, joy and freedom that will make your heart sing and the entire universe lay itself at your feet.

How’s that for a powerful New Years intention?

Creating The Trust Necessary To Manifest Our Dreams

Every Monday night I host a program on BlogTalkRadio called Manifestation Mondays: Create UR Intentions.  On a weekly basis, I highlight some facet of the manifestation process in order to help people employ it in a conscious manner, creating a more fulfilling and a true expression of their heart’s desire. This past week was a challenging one for me, as I watched some of what I thought was part of a big manifestation project slip away and I found myself experiencing some of the same disappointments that my clients often express. It made me stand back a moment and take note of where I was…why… and ask myself the very same question I had been asking my clients: “What do you think is the most difficult part of the manifestation process to maintain?”

The major consensus seems to be the ‘Believe’ state, and I must admit that I concur, although I know that they each are dependent on the other.  Is it the same for you?  Are you frustrated or challenged with limiting thoughts or beliefs that are getting in the way of your happiness? Do your dreams seem to get stuck just out of your reach and you find your ‘vision’ suddenly getting cloudy?  I realized that I needed to do some deep soul searching to find out why this happens and what can we do about it.

Breast Health Initiative: A New Way to Ensure Wellness

You’ve all seem them, those innocent pink ribbons…in fact, these days they seem to be everywhere don’t they?  Yes, that’s because connected to them is a strangulating health crisis affecting almost every woman, man and child in this world. Unfortunately, so is a very large business that has been born in its wake!  So, let me ask you, have you ever noticed your reaction to them? What comes to your heart and mind when you see one?  Is it a warm and fuzzy glow, feeling of optimism or of personal empowerment?  Or, instead is it perhaps a feeling of fear, sadness and disempowerment?

If you’re like most, the latter is the norm and its effects have been devastating around the globe! Any energy of that caliber or frequency, on my CELLpH LOVE emotional pH scale, is that of sheer self destruction.  Energies of fear and disempowerment are dense, acidic energies that create chemical stress reactions within us on a deep cellular level.  What we know about stress is that it is a component in each and every disease and illness process. In fact, scientific statistics tell us that “stress kills”.
