No doubt about it, this has been a tough year for most. However, the energy of the New Year brings a fresh start, and new hope. One of the greatest gifts we have as human beings, is that we get to begin again in each moment, in each day and on each New Year. We get to do that by making a new choice. Nothing you have done in the past can hurt you, the moment you make a new choice. None of the headlines, the news reports or the scare tactics can have any effect at all, unless you begin to believe them. The past has no power over you unless you drag it kicking and screaming into this new year.

That is very powerful.  You are very powerful. Since you are creating your reality with each new choice, you have an immense impact on creating the life, the body, the joy you want to have, the moment you make that decision. That choice is your first step. It ignites the fire. Believing a new choice is available to you and claiming as yours is not always easy. Sometimes what seems to be can feel overwhelming. Your choices direct the energy in your life to whatever you choose to focus on and we can be inadvertently focused on the strife in life before we realize we are drowning in that energy.

A master is careful about what he or she invites into his or her mind and life. A master knows that her choices must be in alignment with her integrity, her spirit and her values because if it is not, the creative force is lessened. For instance, think about the last time you made a half-hearted decision you really didn’t believe in or knew was wrong. What happened? No doubt you spent some time cleaning up the mess because that decision or action wasn’t aligned with your heart and soul.  It wasn’t part of your purpose. It’ a little like a sour note in a symphony.

On the other hand, think about the times your made a decision or took an action that your heart and soul just knew was right for you, even if it didn’t seem possible. No doubt it worked for you in some form. If you still have doubt, you have clearly not heard of Ho’oponopono, the Hawaiian healing process used by Dr. Stanley Hew Len. Take a moment to find his story on line and read about how Dr. Hew Len healed a ward of mentally ill, criminal patients with Ho’oponopono. Yep, he actually healed a hospital full of murderers and insane patients that were criminals, simply by using directed energy and love. He never even spoke with them personally. The staff thought he was nuts, but after a year, there was no longer any turn over in staff, no need for strait jackets and the place was flourishing with love and healing. The energy there became joyful for both staff and patients.

We have a choice this year. We can listen to the rhetoric of division, separation and fear, or we can create life as WE want it to be. We can stop and help another with love, we can encourage someone even if it is just a sweet hello. We can decide what energy we will empower in our lives. I know many people feel this is a bunch of woo-woo nonsense. These are the same people who have never tried it. Sometimes the simplest things in life are also the most effective. So, here is the secret. Think of something you want this year. Every morning when you get up and you are getting ready for your day, look in the mirror and say, “Today I have (you fill in the blank). Don’t say it in a wimpy way. Own it. It’s that simple. The hard part is not allowing doubt and negative energy to seep in and diffuse your directed energy. So, when that happens, and it might because this is a new thought process, just say cancel-cancel and reaffirm your first thought. For some reason, the mind hears a cancel-cancel or erase-erase or delete-delete as an instruction not to retain that last negative thought in mind.  So, what have you got to lose?      Reaffirming you new thought each day may change your year in wonderful new way. And, it also changes the energy for the rest of us in a positive way. It’s a team effort. We wish you every blessing in 2018.
