letting-go-hands… to make room for what WILL.

You can’t have both.

Nor do you want both!

All too often we make the mistake of packing up WHAT DIDN’T WORK FOR US that year and dragging it forward into the new year thinking that it will somehow be different? But it NEVER is.

Chances are if something has been troublesome for you for awhile, it’s time for you to LET IT GO. Continued struggle is never a trajectory for success.

Stop the struggle. Learn to trust the process of your life. It will always bring you to where you need to be; you don’t have to control it. But you just have to be brave enough to know when it’s time to walk away and surrender.

If something didn’t work for you in this calendar year, LEAVE IT THERE. Put your focus on creating something BETTER for yourself. Even if you don’t know what that means just yet. It’s always better to start with nothing then to start off the year behind the 8-ball with the same drama. Why put yourself on that same road when you know exactly where that road leads?

The new year is a time for change. Don’t waste it packing up what didn’t work and dragging it into the new year. You don’t have enough space to find new answers if you are fighting the same dysfunction. Make some new year’s resolutions and resolve yourself to making them a reality. Get out of the way of yourself and let go of what was not working for you this year, so you truly have the space to find what will work.

th-5… leave it there.

No need to carry it forward.

New years are just that – they are for having A NEW YEAR. But we make it a habit of packing up what didn’t work this year and slinging it over our shoulders and bringing it forward into the new year – as if it will somehow magically change? It doesn’t. It is the same dysfunction just another year later and another year wasted.

If a part of your life is consistently not working and keeping you back, then the new year ahead is the time to make change. Resolutions are set to free us from the binds that tie us.

Take stock of what isn’t working this year, so you can find what will. Don’t sit back and watch your life idly pass you by. Every new year is a year to make change and create the life of your dreams.

If it hasn’t been working in 2015 (and in years past), it will most likely NOT work in 2016. Cut your losses and change direction. Decide what you can leave in this current year and create the space to bring in new energy. You already know what things look like this year and if you do not create the space for change, next year will be an obvious repeat. Do you want to make it a happy new year? Then truly move forward and make it A NEW YEAR.

hand-letting-go… is the ONLY way to move forward in your life.

Somehow we think that keeping the old will enable us to open the door to the new. It never does. When a person or a situation has outlived its purpose, it is important to close the door on the old, so that you can create SPACE for the new.

Holding onto what does not serve you does not all of a sudden change. If you decide to pack up what didn’t work for you in 2012 and sling it over your shoulder and haul it into 2013, you will get the same nonsense in 2013. If it didn’t work for you then, I promise you, it will not all of a sudden work now.

Why burden yourself with what you know does not make you happy? When you learn to cut ties to the past and open up to a bright new future, you are creating space for the new future to come in. But when you hold onto what does not work for you, it is as if you are telling the universe you are content and you do not need something new. Look at it this way, if your glass if full of dirty water that you cannot drink, in essence, you are telling the universe that you do not need a refill of fresh water. But in actuality, you are dying of thirst. Pour out the dirty water and allow yourself to be filled with what you truly want and desire in life.

You cannot create change if there is no space. Don’t spend you life being “full” with what is making you unhappy. Be strong and allow yourself the opportunity to throw out the old and make room for the new. The rest of your life awaits. What are you waiting for?

… to start a new year.

Each year we declare a myriad of New Year’s resolutions – most of which never manifest the light of day. We sit idly by as we watch yet another year solemnly pass us by. We tell ourselves in vain that “this year will be different” – “this will be our year” – “this will be the year that everything comes together.” But does it ever really?

How much of our new year’s resolution is actually set as an intention? It is true that we can have whatever it is we want; we just have to want it badly enough to not accept anything less.  Intentions have energy behind them and they will manifest if the appropriate energy ignites them. Our problem is that we weakly state an intention and then walk away expecting the universe/the divine to bring it to our doorstep.  When it doesn’t happen, we use that as an excuse to fall into a negative spiral and sabotage the potential of that intention coming to fruition. In essence, we forego our power and give up on ourselves.

If you could see that everyday you have the ability to dream your highest dream and bring it to life, then we would not waste time carrying around a chest of old & broken resolutions and wear it as a badge of honor. If you are unhappy with where life has brought you to, wake up tomorrow morning and declare a new intention to put things right. Everyday is a chance to wake up anew and create the life you want. But just remember, it doesn’t happen without the high vibrational power of intention.

Wake up to your potential. Set an intention for your new year ahead – declare it so and do not accept anything less. And if you fall off your track, don’t get discouraged get right back up again in the next moment and scream out that intention. With passion behind your intention, you will bring about your resolutions even faster than you can dream them up! Happy New Year!
