Celebrating The New Year

Celebrate the coming year for it is one of significant changes, but acknowledge all that you’ve gone through this past year. For it is what you’ve experienced that makes you ready for what is to come. Your struggles have created a strength within you that will help you to overcome adversity. Your pain has taught you to be patient, knowing that all things shall pass. Your fears were diminished because in facing your deepest fears, you were faced with the truth. You are now ready to move forward on your path and create a new vision for yourself. For you are truly where you are meant to be. Know that as you celebrate the coming of a new year, the Universe celebrates with you.

Time For Reflection

It’s time to take a breathe. Step outside of the craziness that surrounds you. Sometimes you need to pause for just a moment to take in all that’s been happening in the past few weeks. All that running around and pushing yourself has been more tiring than you realize. So find a quiet spot where you can relax before the new year rushes in and starts you spinning again. Take this time to celebrate the past year and all that you’ve accomplished. You are who you have become because of all that you have experienced.

Finish Off Your To Do List

How many times in the past year have you found yourself saying, “I’d really like to do that but I just don’t have the time.” Intending to accomplish what you’ve been wanting to do by the end of the year. You’re just realizing that you now have two days to complete everything on your to do list. But this doesn’t surprise you because the same thing has happened in prior years. So what happens next year. To change things around this year, select one thing off your list and within the two days you have left, go out and accomplish it, do it, or eat it. You will find that you can get anything you want in life, you just have to want it bad enough. End the year by making the time to do what you’d like to do. Life is all about the choices we make.

Life Is About Change

As uncomfortable as you may find it, doing something different may be what you need to begin making changes in your life. You’ve stopped growing because you’ve gotten too comfortable in your daily routine. It’s easier to plan your day when you know what the outcome is going to be. There is always an underlying fear of the unknown if you change what you’ve been doing. So before you get too complacent in life, explore all your options. You are missing out on so many miracles. Life is about change and trusting that the Universe will always be there to guide you and keep you safe .

When you awake, you will witness miracles…

Good Intentions For The Holidays

Although the holiday season is supposed to bring good cheer, many of you become frustrated with expectations not being met. You expect so much not only of yourself but of others. You begin the holidays with good intentions of being compassionate and patient with others but as the days go by you realize how things are not going exactly the way you thought they would. Stores are more crowded than you remembered them to be, drivers are impatient, and family members are who they have always been. With all of that going on, your good intentions fly out the window. Instead of finding humor in the moment, you strike out. So choose your words and actions very careful for although you may not remember what you’ve done, they are not easily forgotten by others. Know that there is still time to enjoy the holiday season the way it was meant to be, by spending special moments with family and friends.

Keeping Your Balance

You’ve worked really hard this past year trying to find your balance. This has helped you go through many difficult times. But there are still moments where you find yourself getting lost amongst the chaos. The worst part of this is that it doesn’t come from yourself but those that surround you. There is so much negative energy coming from others that you find yourself literally taking a step back. You’ve tried to avoid those that cause you stress, but in reality you’ve only hidden from what surrounds us every day. Chaos and controversy are only a part of life. Life is about being in balance no matter what you are going through at the moment. Know that your path can be as peaceful as you’d like it to be, you only have to choose.

Celebrating The Holiday Season

We each celebrate the holidays in our own ways. And we grow up with traditions that we carry to adulthood. So no matter if we are surrounded by family and friends or by ourselves for the holiday season, we find ourselves celebrating in a way that gives us comfort. Although some of us are living away from what is familiar, we do our best to keep to our holiday traditions. Whether it's putting up our own tree, decorating our home, or cooking the comfort food we remember so well, this is what the holidays mean to us. So know that no matter how you spend you holiday season, celebrate it the way that gives you the most joy and happiness. Happy Holidays to you all.

All In Good Time

At this time of year, you may be reflecting upon all of the things you haven’t had time to complete. It may be a little frustrating knowing that another year has gone by and you still haven’t realized some of your goals. In fact, some of them may have been on your list for awhile. You wonder what keeps you from completing them. They are important enough for you to keep on your list, but truly how important are they? If you look at what you’ve accomplished so far, they may have been things that flowed more easily. It was time for them to be fulfilled. Everything comes in it’s own time and when it does it will be an important part of your life at that moment. Know that some of the things on your list are there because you listened to the spirit within you, preparing you for something that will affect the course of your life. Trust that there is a plan bigger than yours could ever be.

Living In The Present

No matter how busy your life is, you wonder about the future. You question what will it bring so you can prepare. If you were to think more about this, you would realize that you can’t control what is to come by ignoring the present. What you do now, your actions create consequences. If you really want to know what your future holds, look at how you are treating others. For everything you do, say, and feel comes back to you eventually. Although there is a Universal plan, you still have the ability to choose. Your future is not set in stone, nor is there a timeline in which you have to follow. It is here in the present that you will find joy and happiness. So know that what will be will come soon enough. Live each day with a good heart and your journey will be what you want it to be.

Life Is Not Always So Kind

As much as you prepare for the unexpected, something happens that turns your life upside down. It’s frustrating because you were so sure that you had all your bases covered. But since life never turns out the way you planned it, the only thing you have control over is the choices and decisions you make at this time. You say that you trust that you are where you are meant to be, then can you accept that life will not always be so kind. Trust that no matter what is happening in your life right now, it will be an important part of who you are in the future. Know that whatever you are experiencing, the Universe will always be there to keep you safe.

Let me just sit for awhile and watch life go by…

We Are Here For You

What is it about helping others that makes you feel good. Everyone who knows you would describe you as a person who is always there if they need help. But why you so hesitant to ask for help when you are in need. It’s not that you are lacking of people who would come running to your aid. So even knowing this you’d rather struggle and make things much more difficult for yourself than it should be. Is it your fear that others would think that you are vulnerable or weak? Or is it that you don’t want to bother anyone? Remember how you felt when you were helping others? Do you see them as vulnerable or weak? Or see them as a person who could just use a little help? It’s time to be compassionate to yourself as you are to others. It’s okay to let others be a part of your journey. Love and compassion helps to heal all.
We are all here for you…

Living Life Alone

You’ve been on your own for so long that it’s difficult to remember what it’s like to share with others. Although you’re surrounded by those who love and care for you, you’ve kept your distance. Not wanting to burden others with your worries and fears, you deny anything is bothering you. Even though you’ve hidden behind your smile, those close to you are concerned. You would be surprised to know how much your family and friends can truly see. It’s time to share your feelings with others. You were not meant to live your life alone. The Universe provides you with loving and caring people to help you on your journey. It’s time to let others into your life and release the burdens that you’ve held so close.

Making A Committment Towards Change

You say that you want to make changes in your life and you are serious about making a commitment. But you’ve made so many promises before why should this time be different. It’s frustrating when you start your journey with good intentions then find yourself back where you began. You’re not really sure what happened. All you know is that somewhere along the line you lost your focus. Although you may not realize it, life is all about evolving. You are not the same person who made the commitment so long ago. You are who you’ve become. Know that when you acknowledge the changes that have taken place within you, then it’s time to move on and explore what the world has to offer you. 

Your path can be as enjoyable as you’d like it to be…

Dont Let Life Stop You

Life doesn't always go the way you'd like it to. In fact, sometimes it seems that whatever can go wrong does. The plans you've worked so hard on goes awry. Problems pop up from everywhere. It's hard not to stop what you're doing and throw up your hands in defeat. It really feels as if the Universe is working against you. You are not sure what you're going to do next. You can refuse to go any further, but how important is the work you were trying to complete? If it's as meaningful for you as it will be others then push forward. Take a deep breathe and look at what is happening from a different perspective. You may have to be creative, but you have all that you need to overcome all the challenges that come your way. You have the ability to accomplish all that you set out to do.

Asking For Help

When you've lost your way, who do you turn to for help to guide you through the darkness? So far you've been able to maneuver through life just fine. You've never really had to depend on anyone. You've been lucky and being independent has made you strong and confident. But now life has turned on you and the light that once guided you is no longer as bright. So where do you go from here? There are so many options for you depending how you are feeling. Frozen in fear you may decide to stay where you are until the darkness fades away. Or you may decide to ask for help from those who love you. They may not know where your path leads but they'll help you walk safely through the dark. Although you may not see the light, know that the Universe is always there for you when you need help.
When you're not sure where you're at, ask for help...
