Making Our New Year’s Resolutions Work!

One year over and the next one just beginning …
This is the time that we usually sit down and decide what resolutions and goals we want to set in motion. But, unfortunately, in a couple of months they don’t appear important, or for that matter, possible to manifest. And so you give up and go on with your life the way you have been for the past several years.

But what if this year is different? What would your life be like if you can change your reality? Well, you can!
Let’s make 2017 your banner year. The year that your life shifted into what you really want it to be.

Universal Law dictates that whatever you focus on returns to you. This is especially true of the feelings you feel when you experience situations. Feeling fear creates more fearful experiences. Feeling anger creates more situations coming into your life making you feel angry. These negative feelings that you have been holding inside of you creates the patterns that keep occurring in your life. This is the basis of what you see as your what is happening in your life right now, your reality. You want to change your reality? Then change the patterns … change the bottlenecks holding you back from what you wish your life to be.

Well, how do you do that?

Step One: Take some time by yourself and think about the situations that appeared to have repeatedly occurred this past year — that made you feel negative feelings: anger, frustration, depression, sadness, fear, loss, etc.

Step Two: Now, on a piece of paper draw 2 columns. In the first column write down what negative feelings you felt in each of these situations. In the second column list the lessons you gained (the realizations and insights gained from those experiences that have made you a better person) from each of the situations that seem to reoccur. It is the recognition of these insights that release the need for continuing to experience the patterns since your awareness now includes what lessons were required.

Step Three: Performing “ceremony”, one that resonates with your personality and comfort level, makes your intentions more significant, more powerful, and sends clarity to the Universe/God/Source of the partnership in this experience. Sit with your feet on the ground, or sit on the ground, have a ceramic bowl nearby and the list you just created. Invite your guides, Source/God, etc to be participants in the ceremony and say the following (or what feels right to you):

“I ask that the energies of my Ancestors and any and all representatives of my Divine Support group be present at this ceremony, drawing forth the requests expressed today and manifesting these expressions into what is in the Highest Good and Best Interest for all. This is a commitment ceremony between me, my Higher Self, and Life.

I ask that these negative emotions (mentally identify what these are or use your list) be placed in a pink bubble and sent into the Universe away from doing any harm.
I also ask that these feelings be released from each of my bodies and that healing takes its place. I recognize that these represented/listed lessons were to be learned and I acknowledge that it is now complete and done.
I hereby forgive any transgressions, and equally, forgive myself for any and all. I ask that blessings and peace be given to (Name of Persons or Situations Being Released, as well as myself) and that all wrongs, unbalances, and karmic obligations be complete by this action.
SO BE IT AND SO IT IS. IT IS DONE.”

Burn the list in the bowl and then:
Visualize golden light coming from above your body, drawn down into your body, into every pore and atom of your 4 bodies (mental, emotional, physical, and core essence), down into the earth, and then see it brought up through the earth into your body, into and out of the top of your head and then shooting up above you.

When you feel it has permeated your entire Self, then enlarge and expand it around you and under and over you. Allow some time to actually feel this.

“This concludes our ceremony. I thank each and every Divine Support energy for their attendance here and in their participation of the power of its fulfillment and consecration. I am in gratitude and appreciation. I now release Each from this ceremony and ask blessings for my continual support and assistance. So be it and so it is. It is done. It is done. It is done.”

I congratulate you on making this monumental step in shifting your life. May you only experience: joy, peace, love, Knowingness, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.
