Happy New Year Gong xi fat cai – Chinese New Year, year of the horse.  So how is your new year evolution?  It seems like the new year doesn’t really start here in Australia until beginning of February. When kids are back to school and the holidays end, that’s when it feels like a new year has begun. How timely then that Chinese New Year was on 31st Jan.

It may seem kind of ironic. Thinking ahead – planning ahead. I mean, aren’t we supposed to be in the NOW?  Well..Yes it’s the most spacious and real place to BE for sure.  But the funny thing is the NOW contains your vision of the future (and the past for that matter) While you bring your attention into the now you can also focus that attention on what you want to create for yourself or, more accurately, co-create with the Creative Source, the universal energy of love). And that is a powerful alignment – being in the now of who you are, your true value, your essence of love AND laser beam visioning where you want to be by calendar year’s end, or in five years end. The time frame is up to you.  Bringing a clear vision for what you want to create is a step in owning that you are the creator of your life dharma or purpose. Maybe your brain, your mind reels with doubt and such doubt exists because we have never been taught this possibility. In fact, we’ve probably been taught the opposite. We may even have fear about the possibility. 

You know that beautiful passage by Marianne Williamnson: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” 

I suggest that you make part of your new year’s evolution to ignite your creative sparkle and shine your unique expression brightly.  And another powerful statement that you’ve probably seen before: “You are who you think you are”

At the core we are love, that you know and you trust that knowing. We are vast and there truly is no limit. Our thinking, how we’ve thought about ourselves is our only limitation.  And when it comes to our fears and our doubts Emmanuel, a wonderful channeled entity, said so eloquently and simply: “choose love, or choose fear”. You can’t be both at the same time.
