So many resolutions made, so much clutter cleared, faces faded, ties cut and new bonds made, new plans set, new adventures ahead.
Do you dream?
Or have you planned?
So much you have packed into the long list of expectation on these next twelve months. Who would agree, last year just disappeared!?
The months ahead seem like an endless pathway, and we know and trust there will be many twists and turns along that pathway, but as we close the door on last year, softly, tightly, or slam it shut – there are still many more doors to open. Doors through which you will walk and drink in the new of potential, offers and opportunities. You explode with ideas, order yourself to shake off doubts and expect your bodies to be perfectly formed and in good health. I say that however you feel you are right now, that is ok. You are perfectly awaiting the beginning of something for which you have waited over such a long period of time. Time moves, forwards, not back, so let’s all hold onto reality.
“Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.”
You have the key to open any door to new experience that you wish in 2019.
This time last year, I had three journals filled with writing on content for my business. I had visions for my healthy lifestyle and loving relationships, friendship circles and plans for travel. I built lists, scribbled and doodled on pices of stick it notes, bought myself new journals, others bought me new journals, knowing how much I love paper, and ink and to creatively write! I packed ideas, mindmaps, for both personal wishes and business plans, and time ate up all of the year. A great deal of those ideas and plans were executed, some unfurled like cotton from a bobbin, and some flowed like rivers, bubbling and vibrant. I saw myself action out my thoughts, which became my reality. My reality then inspired further thoughts and further dreams were born, to be planned and scheduled and evolved. Like we all have ability to do, whatever circumstance we find ourselves in. All time passes quickly, yet last year seems just a blur…. such was the rapid busy, busy hours of each day, each month, and quarter. I have tremendous pride in all I have achieved, and catch all the colours of wonderful experiences into memories that only I shall treasure, along with those whose lives I have helped to change. Who health has been uplifted, whose mind has been inspired, whose hand has been held, and whose voice is now heard, as they have pushed and grown personally, spiritually, soulfully.
Who knew the days and months would quickly flash by and some of those fabulously germinated plans of mine, and yours, were entered into journals found themselves pushed to one side, torn up, discarded, or even evolved into new designs in life which manifested into the now. I made choices, as you do too, which project into prioritising which to keep – worthy of your energy, and which to dump. The end of the year signifies a time when we actually physically discard all the rubbish from our work spaces, homes, cars, circles, relationships, we polish up pristine everything we treasure to sparkle brighter into the New Year!
Each day is a new beginning. Last month presented gifts. Each day forward, presents choice – I hope this helps you make the right choices for each day.
I want you to think about your choices today. This week. This month. Then the bigger picture for the year ahead.
Grab one of those journals, someone gifted to you for Christmas, a pen, a mug of hot steaming herbal tea, and prepare to plan. Allow thoughts and ideas to flow and dance around your mind, tease out a few into further expansion of ideas, collate, collect, and celebrate all that you know you are and all you are destined to be.
Go within, find a space and allow yourself time to stop. There is no race ahead, no feeling of overwhelm, no competition to cloud your view or steal your limelight. You are the main person in this drama of life and you stand central stage. Full spotlight upon you. All can view you, admire you, copy you, follow you, shout out their joy to you, or criticize you. Cut the chords to chaos, calamity and criticism. No one can criticize you, for they are not you. No one is judging you, they are perceiving you and you have judged yourself. To this point, be honest with yourself. Where have you judged yourself, doubted and tousled with your ideas and actions? Whatever you embrace by making choices in your life, you do alone. Not cajoled, manipulated or coerced into action, but by making your own choices. You have the right to exercise that freedom. The freedom to choose.
This year – choose to LIVE
Live a life that is full or silent, jumbled or jaded, colourful or concise, clear or confused, restful or restless, rousing or refocused. Ask for all that life has to offer, and the intuitive trust to make the right choices. Be reminded that you never asked for a lonely, isolated, dull and boring life – did you? I know your answer. You want the very best for yourself and those you love. You tackle everyday issues in family and work and neighbourhood environments but also struggle to tackle those doubts and worries and niggles and self-talking down to yourself within, because of all the outer world demands upon you. Prioritise those things you love.
This year – choose to BREATHE
To live in total harmony – listening to your own body. Remaining mindful of the necessity our body has to breathe. For all of us to focus on breathe. To connect to the higher power. To be comfortable in our own skin. To listen to our higher guidance. To view the visions within our mind. To breathe out stress. Breathe in joy. Never comparing self to another. So what if Annie Cumcannie can tie her legs in knots, run the beach at 5am in the morning, flip pancakes, drive four children to junior school, walk the dog, chop and cook thick rich casseroles and push posts constantly on social media of how life is so totally utterly amazing. Reality: dashing towards the day, constantly whirring within the cogs of life eats up most of the day to video, photograph, write content, travel to and from, shower, do hair and make up, prepare ideas to shoot video, adjust volume, remove noise, edit promo’s and effort and energy to enter into spaces with others to be seen here there and everywhere. Run a family, nurture a relationship, cook, clean, rest, and sleep. Reality: It’s a non-stop hamster wheel of existence. Choose to Live. Stop comparing. Start breathing. Taking it slow. Nice and easy. Recall how it was before social media content marketing pressed you into squeezing your life into ‘celebrity-status’ – find inner personal success in the simplicity of living. Live. Love. Life.
One hour per day connecting with your soul, allowing your higher self to speak to you, brushing up your spiritual energy vibe, reading good material, and some no doubt bad, creating and flowing in practical pursuits, cooking, cleaning, clearing and caressing. Being in silence where all sound no matter how far, is detected. A spiritual life is not one filled with time constraints and high demands from expectations of others. Remember that on the way up to building your empire, you had better have some support around you for when you burn out, become frazzled, run into mush mindedness. You feel you are already there? Well, good, because you have a choice right now.
You still here? Good. If you want to give up on the rat race, in whichever form it takes, find YOU again and not what YOU THINK YOU should be, if you want to discover life from within and how your inner compass can be realigned to take you into a flow of abundance of joy, love and bliss in your life, then read on.
This year – choose to be YOU
Don’t let yourself be scooped up into the hands of the social media monster. Empires bring demands, pressures and conflict. Where is the ease of your thoughts being inspired in the mind, when it is already full of junk. Get rid of the notion that you have to jump high, reach high, ditch dreams and follow the dreams of others’ because they have a brighter, bolder social media presence than yourself. Where are those people without the need to glorify themselves? What gives them joy and pleasure if they are forever endlessly seeking it.
So many I work with or encounter in business networking, or friendship circles, do not know who they are. They have lost a sense of themselves. They have been too caught up in conforming to what others expect of them. They have ignored their calling. Disbanded from their true purpose.. become confused, lost, bewildered. Seeking help to resolve their emotional issues, or mental stresses. Often flying around fulfilling the desires of other people’s needs and yet, neglecting their own.
Are you becoming lost? Are you concerned at the lack of clarity in your life? Have you lost your sense of fun? Are you afraid to be YOU? Identify your identity and soar through this next season of sensational soulful certainty.
Think of five reasons you love being YOU.
This year – choose to CONNECT
Align with your higher inspiration. Align in abundant gratitude for all that you are. Never be afraid to value self and value your financial flow. Energy is flowing and is abundance in so many threads of life experiences. The year has been abundant in it’s many blessings of life experiences, joy, laughter, holidays, travel with friends, weekend retreats, offers from USA to secure bonds of work that are expanding, and much appreciation of the abundance of love and support I have. I find myself smiling at the many things I have planned for this year. Choosing to CONNECT to my own passions and plans for this year, and the years beyond in a much more aligned sense. CONNECTING with those who resonate with me and discarding those who do not. That is the choice we all have.
CONNECTING with the abundant flow of energy that is funneled into finance to fund my many trips, personal travel, business connections in UK and overseas, and allowing time to connect to the divine light of inspiration.
Are you feeling disconnected? Have you recently reconnected with a former passion of yours? A particular hobby or interest? I know when I lay down to bend and stretch in a yoga session or two last month, my mind connected in memory to the body and flexibility I had as a twenty to thirty year old. I used to love my twice weekly yoga sessions and yet, over the course on nearly thirty years, I had neglected to immerse myself into the beautiful gentle meditative moves and breathe work. It is on my list for this year! Yoga mat at the ready!
We can all make new connections, we can address the imbalance of connecting in the relationship we have with our finances too. An energy source that also needs to be in balance, as well as our minds and our bodies.
Where are you needing to free yourself from the tight hold of financial pressures? Can I help you in any way release the blocks that will free the flow of abundance to you? Get in touch if you feel this resonates with you. I know I believe in the Law of Attraction greatly.
Money is energy and money is in abundance flowing right to you, for as much as you need and as much as you choose to spend or save. I have a healthy flow of gratitude for every penny earned, and assets that keep me in a spiritual state of appreciation. I honour the energy that I choose to expend. Gratitude is my attitude.
I live by the Law of Attraction, respecting karma and live my life by it. I know that your money choices will be wise and justified too. Connect to your truth. Connect to your plans and passions and project that energy into your future. Explore the world, travel light, sense everything around you. Fulfill your dreams. Invest in your connection to your spiritual higher self, listen to your soul. Know that when you decide you want the things in life that make you sing, the time will be right. Your choice. When you decide you are ready.
This year, access your own abundance to fulfill your soul’s purpose.
This year – choose to STAY GROUNDED
Be at one with nature. Take a space to garden, create a meditation corner, purchase a new home in the ideal country location, or beach house where the sea will wash away your worries daily. The power of the natural elements much greater than monetary balances. Stay grounded when you know you are connected to your own soul purpose. Be thankful for offers to distract you from your path, as you know then, how confident in your truth, you are. Be mindful that if you were to lose everything and everyone in your life, you are still that powerful soulful grounded connection to truth. Be awesome, have fun, reach high, explode joy into your everyday sky of living your life, but ground yourself too. Anchor in your established roots and be unwavering when storms approach, you are invincible in being so.
This year – choose to LISTEN TO YOUR SOUL
Soul speaks daily to you. Intuition the key to understanding Self. No joy can ever be stolen or broken when it sits securely in your soul. Feel the strength of your inner energy core. The fluidity of movement you enjoy as you flow in the current of stillness and strength. Wellness and wishing others well from your security. Like myself, I know you have done so much caring for others and in this year, cut ties with all toxic drains of your resources. Sift through those who are fair-weather friends, who only get in touch when something is wrong. Where are your friends celebrating their friendship with you? Where are you ignoring friendship with Self?
Let your soul guide you. Stay on track and reach all your brilliant desires this year, next, and every year after. Life is eternal, not twelve months, not just one day. It isn’t about how much we are seen to spend on things and treats and pampering, but the time spent on ourselves. Look after YOU by nurturing.. listen to the word… let the syllables roll across your tongue with ease… n-u-r-t-u-r-i-n-g- especially if you have so many responsibilities in your home, with family, children, relationship, work, business, and health issues to care for, within others. Heal from the inside out and then from that outer world take sustenance in exploring in wellness, all adventures.
Still yourself – retreat away from the pressure to perform – collect your thoughts and allow yourself to call in your future – align to it.
Congratulations for making a difference to so many people, share your light with others, stay unique within your freedom of life choices.
Sending all my very best wishes to you!
Love your choice to stay and read this!
