Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukah… DONE! CHECK! Now, New Year’s…
New Year’s is a chance to clean the slate and to make our lives richer and fuller. To help gain clarity on what needs to go and what needs to come with you to make 2012 AMAZING, take some time to do this exercise I used to do every New Year’s with my clients.
Create THREE separate lists:
1. CRAP YOU ARE LEAVING IN 2011
Write down experiences, feelings, people, circumstances… anything not serving your greatest good. All of those things you do not want to drag into 2012. Share this list with a trusted friend who will witness without judgment. Then, burn the list so the energy attached to it can be released back into the universe and out of your experience.
2. GEMS YOU ARE KEEPING FROM 2011
Write down what you learned from your experiences, good and bad, but especially from those on list #1. Honor what you learned, and, with mindfulness, you’ll be less likely to repeat the crappy situation. Even the worst situation has a gem. You just have to be willing to look to find it. Hold onto this list.
3. WHAT YOU ARE CREATING IN 2012
Write what you want to create for yourself: how you want your life to look and feel. This list should be written in the present tense and include all areas of your life: love, health, family, wealth, friends, career, fitness, spirituality, etc. Marinate, meditate, and think on what you have written. Put this list where you can see it on a daily basis – for example, make it your screen saver or keep it next to your bed. When you look at this list, feel the feelings of having these things. By conjuring the feelings you become a magnet that will draw the experiences to you.
It is a proven fact that writing down your intentions gives them a much better chance of actually coming into being. Create some time and space to creatively write your lists. Invite some friends to your manifesting party, witness each other’s lists, and make it fun!
We are the architects and engineers of our life experience, so commit to creating your best life in 2012!
I’m interested in what your resolutions are, what experiences you need to release, and what gems have you gleaned from various situations. I’m also here to offer any advice and be your biggest supporter in making 2012 spectacular!
I hope you have a SAFE and joyous New Year, and, as always, take care of you.
