Have you taken time this year to ask your heart what it wants you to know? With the renewal of the new year, we get to change how we think and feel. We get to shed the old and step into the new. We get to create habits we choose, let go of things that don’t serve us, and release any hold the past has on us. The global energy at this time of year is one of renewal and regeneration; of new beginnings and fresh starts.
It is time to check in with your heart and seek your heart’s wishes, and that which is calling you. It is time to say yes to the future you want to claim.
We may be holding onto past baggage or have unresolved trauma that keeps showing up, causing us to be trapped in the past. Release this old baggage to create space for a deeper connection to Source. Close your eyes. Ground yourself by taking a few deep breaths. Now spend some time on you. Start by asking yourself these questions and listening to the first answer that comes to you.
What are the first 3 thoughts that come to me about myself? What am I holding onto that no longer serves me? What can I do to release this? What do I want more of in my life? What can I do to bring that into my life? Do I believe this is possible for me – why or why not? What does my heart want me to know in this moment? It may be easy for you, or you may find that nothing comes to you at first. Write down the answers you get. These first answers are our current beliefs about ourselves and our lives at this moment. They are not necessarily true, but on some level we believe them to be true, and so live accordingly.
Now connect to Source/God/Goddess/Universe in whatever way is right for you – it may be prayer, meditation, stroking your cat, hugging your little one, or any other means that allows you to connect. When you begin to feel that connection, ask yourself these questions again.
Are the answers different? As you do this for the second time, you may find other questions coming to you, or answers to questions you have not yet asked yourself. Our connection opens us up to possibility and shines a light on that which we currently view in darkness.
Using the method of creating stillness within brings clarity. We are no longer listening to our current programming that has developed through life experiences – instead, we are tapping into our Divine Guidance. This allows us to release anything that has been holding us back.
No matter what you have been through up to this moment, every new moment is a chance to shift where you will be at this time tomorrow. Every day is a new day, a fresh start to be kinder to yourself, to love and forgive yourself, and to embrace your right to a fulfilling life.
We all deserve to live in joy and freedom, to feel thrilled about every new dawn, and to feel gratitude as we close our eyes to sleep. Living this life of possibility does not need to be earned – just being alive makes joy your birthright. Claim it today by waking each day and choosing you. Reinforce it every night with a gratitude practice as you drift off to sleep.
