Are You Yeady for Change?
It is the time of the year when we constantly hear, “It’s gone too quick!”
At the end of the year we tend to look back and reflect on the progress we hoped to make in a year.
Falling in love, getting married, having a baby, recovering from an illness, enjoying a new job, promotion or a great financial gain are normally the criteria that make people pleased with the year that is currently on its way out.
The rest of the population may not feel that satisfied with their achievements. Those who have experienced massive loss, break-up or even no desired change for the better, often struggle during this ‘wonderful time of the year’. I sometimes hear ‘I hate Christmas!’ statements from my new clients.
It may seem not easy and yet the better you take control over your emotions, the sooner you start creating the better feeling thoughts. As an inevitable consequence of that, reality will catch up and you’ll find yourself enjoying life again.
“As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.” – Carl Jung
There is a way that you can choose to raise yourself up from powerlessness, fear, depression to hopefulness, enthusiasm, trust, empowerment, joy, freedom.
Improve Your Experience of the Year 2013 Technique
Write down 13 good things that happened to you in 2013. It could be something as little as a thank-you note from a neighbour. Digging positive answers from your memory will raise your feel-good factor. When you finish your list, give yourself a break – and then return to write a follow-up list of another 13 good things that happened to you in 2013. Make sure to include your own acts of kindness to other people! These could be little deeds that you would have forgotten about if you did not specifically bring them forward in your mind. Look though your list and choose 7 people to acknowledge how important their deed was for you and how grateful you are for that. Contact these people straight away.
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, and confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” – Melody Beattie
Feel free to keep adding to your list daily.
“Happiness cannot be travelled to, owned, earned, worn, or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.” – Denis Waitley
Now you are in the state of being ready to create a greater 2014 than it might have been without your appreciation of the previous year.
All our experiences made us the people we are today. Each day is important. Each year is valuable. We must embrace ALL experiences and see ourselves through the eyes of Source, always loved.
“It is as easy to create a castle as it is a button. It’s just a matter of whether you’re focused on a castle or a button.” – Abraham Hicks

“We come from another world, a home beyond this one that is always calling us to return. We get home not by leaving this earth but by changing our mind about its purpose: knowing that we ARE love, and we are here to love. That recognition is enlightenment.” – Marianne Williamson
