Creations and Manifestations for the New Year

new year [1]

Happy New Year! Isn’t it wonderful that we all get to start a new time in our lives [2]? This is the perfect time to open to the emerging “you”!

As I was doing my morning practice, I began to envision my new year. During my meditation [3] I called in the life I want to create this year. I don’t like goal-setting and resolutions because I do not believe they create enough synergy for my life. I like the possibilities that come in the forms of what I am creating and manifesting [4] through the expansion of my consciousness. Moving into a new year from that place allows me to fully understand that I am “creating” the life that I live.

Reflections on the past year

If you look back at last year and you are really honest with yourself [5], you will realize everything that happened, you created. The successes are manifestations of your consciousness and desires. The challenges may reflect beliefs, old patterns and ways of being that no longer serve you.

I had the opportunity to take a three-month sabbatical in 2012 and it really supported me in looking deeply into my choices, my beliefs and the ways I project my thoughts into reality. It has totally changed the way I look at my life and it has become clear to me that “everything” I see and experience mirrors back to me “my” way of being.

Pearls of wisdom

Many great teachers have told us that the world we live in is a reflection of who we are. [6] Here are some thoughts for you to take into your year as you open to the possibility that you can create the life you want in powerful and extraordinary ways.

“Act is the blossom of thought, and joy and suffering are its fruits.” ~ James Allen, from As A Man Thinketh

“Like attracts like. Whatever the conscious mind thinks and believes, the subconscious identically creates.” ~ Brian Adams, from How to Succeed

“By choosing your thoughts, and by selecting which emotional currents you will release and which you will reinforce, you determine the quality of your Light. You determine the effects that you will have upon others, and the nature of the experiences of your life.” ~ Gary Zukav, from Seat of the Soul

“If we understood the power of our thoughts, we would guard them more closely. If we understood the awesome power of our words, we would prefer silence to almost anything negative. In our thoughts and words we create our own weaknesses and our own strengths. Our limitations and joys begin in our hearts. We can always replace negative with positive.” ~ Bettie Eadie, from Embraced By the Light

New year affirmation

I stand with you as you embrace the “new you.” [7] I see you as a powerful creator of a magnificent year.

Please affirm with me: Today, I step into this year with great anticipation of all the good that life has to offer. I am clear that I am creating a magical and magnificent life.
