FENSKE: Know your magnificence and claim it

"We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day." - Edith Lovejoy PierceAs you prepare for the first week of the New Year, have you given much energy to the vision of how you would like the next year to look? Do you know what you want to create for yourself in terms of what you want to experience in this New Year?You have probably already set goals for yourself and made resolutions that you will implement on the first day of the year. If so, did you take into account your magnificence as you were setting your goals? Were you thinking considerably huge as you wrote them down? Or were you, like a lot of people, limiting yourself by thinking small?In the movie "Dogma" there is a scene in which a poster in the background caught my eye. It says, "The sky has no limits." WOW!! All my life I had heard that the sky IS the limit and all of a sudden, years ago in this movie it boldly states the sky HAS NO limits! What a reminder that we are limitless beings and the only limits we have are those we place on ourselves! We do this by playing small in this game of life. We do it through our unconscious beliefs about who we are and what we are worthy of.If you truly believed that you are worthy of all the good you desire, how would your world look? If you truly believed that you are the creator of all your experiences, what kind of goals would you be writing then? Would they be outrageously expansive or small and constricting? Dare to use a huge canvas with a palette of infinite colors to paint the picture of your life this year. You are the author of your story, the composer of your music, the artist of your painting, the director, producer and actor in the movie of your life...the creator of your own life experience! And, here's the bonus - the Universe is always conspiring to support you in playing big, in realizing and manifesting your dreams and desires.Know your own magnificence and claim it. Know that within you is an energy so powerful that you can create miracles. This energy is from Source and it is yours to tap into at any time. It is with you always and can't wait to assist you in becoming the creator you were born to be. Know your worth and claim it. Know that by not feeling worthy and playing small you are actually doing a disservice not only to yourself but to the world. You are here to live out loud and model this to others.As you embark on your journey for this New Year, remember that the sky has no limits and neither do you. Your adventure is limited only by how expansive and grand you are courageous enough and willing to think. In the words of Henry Ford, "Whether you think you can or think you can't - you are right." I encourage you to think CONSIDERABLY HUGE this year. Every day affirm, embody and claim your greatness! May this year be full of mystery and miracles and may your story that you tell at the end of the year be colorful and rich!Catherine Fenske, Ph.D. (c), is the owner of Live With Intention Coaching.
