Opening Yourself to New Possibilities
You’ve probably made resolutions for the new year or at least thought about what you’d like to accomplish this year and that’s a good thing. However, I ask you to stop, just for a moment . . . and breathe. Acknowledge the wonderful being that you are right now, just as you are. Sometimes we get too caught up in what’s next that we miss out on the present moment.
Great. Now, look back over this last year (or whatever time frame suits you) and acknowledge who you are and acknowledge your growth and accomplishments. Too often we don’t give ourselves credit for the changes we’ve made. So take a moment and do this for yourself and really soak it in.
Now as you look onto 2009 and to new possibilities what is your vision for the year? If you haven’t thought about it then you can do so now by imagining your ideal 2009.
After you have your general vision in mind take a moment to picture your ideal life in every aspect manifesting right now before you. How do you look, feel and act in this new reality? What do you do differently? Can you become or embody that person now? By visualizing what you want and by acting ‘as if’ you are already that person you begin attracting this new reality to you.
After doing the above and solidifying your vision write it down. Describe your dreams, desires, potentialities and goals. Next, make a list of key action items. Then on a regular basis (daily or weekly) think, intend, or visualize different aspects of this reality happening AND take actions towards your goals. And ready your life for great possibilities.
Wishing you the best in 2009 and beyond.
Happy New Year!
