We all hear so much about the dreaded 2012. The Mayan calendar says it is the end of the world as we know it among other things. And many of us have some fear about the possibility it is right. Fear can be paralyzing and blind us to the fact that we can create what we want.
So as 2011 comes to a close, take some time to contemplate what you learned:
What were the gifts you received? Did you meet new people? Did you accomplish a long sought goal? Did you walk away from a situation that no longer served you?
Sit in quiet contemplation. It is a great idea to write what comes to mind.
Start at New Years Day 2011 and work your way through the entire year. Just allow what needs to be revealed to show itself. Feel the victory and sense of accomplishment. Sit in gratitude for what you received and learned.
Allow it to fill your heart. Own it!
Then from this place send gratitude for every moment; the good, the bad, all of it. See your self letting go of the entire year. Sending it away like a bunch of balloons or white doves. Release it all. When we can assess, take what we need and release the rest we can move forward in peace. In one piece, fully prepared to create the next chapter of our lives.
We are no longer living in the past which is over. No longer so confounded by what happened but fully present and empowered to live in the moment. Living in the moment is the way to create the life we are meant to live.
So when we are done with the letting go it is time to take some deep breaths and feel the freedom. Do you like the freedom? Want more of it? Ready to create more of what you want?
The first thing is to know that every single experience makes us who we are. There are no mistakes. Just lessons. When we see them as lessons it is possible to learn from them and do something different the next time. Find something to be grateful for in every moment, situation and relationship. It is the fuel that will get you where you want to go.
Now it is time to sit and contemplate how you would like to FEEL in the new year. It is ok to see pictures of what you want but the feeling is what we are after. Use the pictures of what you would like to create, feel them as if they are so. Send gratitude for them. But remember that we can think much smaller than what we are capable of so always be open to this or better.
What is your intention for 2012? I'm not talking about goals or resolutions. What is it that you wish to create? If you can be open to the belief that you are supported by the Universe, God, Higher Power or what ever resonates with you ... you can create the life of your dreams. Believing is seeing. If we can believe it we can create it.
So take some time to assess your 2011, own your accomplishments, release it all with love and contemplate what the feeling is that you wish to create in 2012. Live every moment in gratitude. For what we look for is what we find. How awesome would it be to find more and more to be grateful for! And look back to see that you created even more to be grateful for.
These are simple concepts that work! Take them and make your 2012 the Year of Great Things. You are so worth it. Much love and wishing you all the blessings you are intending. And may you inspire others to live in gratitude and creation.
