Health: All things are possible in 2014

“I am the New Year. I am an unspoiled page in your book of time. I am your next chance at the art of living. I am your opportunity to practice what you have learned about life during the last twelve months. All that you sought and didn’t find is hidden in me, waiting for you to search it but with more determination. All the good that you tried for and didn’t achieve is mine to grant when you have fewer conflicting desires. All that you dreamed but didn’t dare do, all that you hoped but did not will, all the faith that you claimed but did not have—these slumber lightly, waiting to be awakened by the touch of a strong purpose. I am your opportunity to renew your allegiance to Him who said, “Behold, I make all things new.” — Anonymous

I just love the above quote because it evokes the hope and knowing that all things are possible. If you didn’t get it right in the past year, you still have many more chances in the New Year. All it takes is a strong purpose and aligning yourself with your I AM Presence, the God-Goddess within.

The New Year is approaching, and now that the Christmas holiday is past it is time to reflect and celebrate new beginnings. As you look back over the past year, remember all your experiences for the knowledge you gained from them and the pearls of wisdom they each held. Even though there may have been what appeared to be “bad” experiences at times, they still held value for you from a learning standpoint and from the growth they rendered.

While making your “intentions” for the New Year, take the knowledge of your past experiences and celebrate the gold inherent in them. Intend to “practice what you have learned about life during the last twelve months” to create a better life for yourself in the next twelve months. Intend to let go of conflicting desires to make space for all the good that is available and waiting for you now. Intend to dream bigger and then dare to achieve those dreams; intend to will things into existence that you hope for, not just hope for them; intend to embody the faith that you claim. Most importantly, intend to find a strong purpose in life and do what it takes to make that purpose a reality.

Go forward in this New Year with the hope that all things are possible, because they are! When you renew your allegiance with your Source, your Higher Intelligence, your I AM Presence, with whatever you name your higher self, you tap into the magic of the universe and the field of potentiality where all things truly are possible. You become the conscious director of your energy, which is the energy of all that is. You will take those “unspoiled pages in your book of time,” capture the art of living and make this New Year the best one yet.

I encourage you to really celebrate the coming New Year as an opportunity to create the life you desire and deserve. It’s all up to you. Reflect on the choices you made in the last year and either choose differently or upgrade the ones that worked out well. You have a fresh, clean slate on which to write and act on your intentions. Intend well and act well. Live With Intention.

Happy New Year to you with many blessings!
