Happy New Year!! I am so EXCITED to let go of 2011 and move forward to 2012!
Hooray for 2012! This year, the world needs our love and magic more than ever! And to help us all feel our brightest, happiest and most creative (so that we can spread our love and magic around) I made a list of five activities to start off the year...
1.) Write or illustrate goals for yourself in 2012 and post them on a wall. Be sure to include your work, creative, health and body, family and friends, financial, spiritual, personal goals. Look at your goals everyday and make lists of tasks (even tiny ones) to do in order to make them happen! (And please don't be afraid to ask for help or support to make them happen!)
2.) Clear your space. Donate everything (and I mean everything) that you haven't touched or needed in 2011. Saving and storing possessions weighs us down and might prevent us from being our very best. Once de-cluttered, our living and work spaces will be clear, bright and ready for us to create magic!
3.) Clean your space. Create a positive and productive work or living space by cleaning with baking soda, lemons, vinegar, lavender or tea tree essential oils mixed with water, etc. We have more energy and inspiration in a sparkling and shining haven! (And if you still don't feel inspired, then add natural light, bright colors, beautiful music and natural scents!)
4.) Write down or draw TEN positive behaviors and activities that make you feel magical and make you shine inside and out. Then incorporate these behaviors into your life every day this year. Make a commitment to treat yourself good and to only allow positive things in your life!
5.) Write down or draw TEN negative behaviors that you would like to stop doing. Then close your eyes and let them go. JUST LET THEM GO. Each time you find yourself wanting to do one of these habits, refer to the previous list and replace the habit with a behavior that makes you feel good. If it is difficult to let go of certain behaviors, then don't be afraid to ask yourself "why" or to ask for help. Regardless of what society has trained us to believe, we have the power within us to heal ourselves and let negative behaviors go.
Use 2012 as an opportunity to let go of old negative patterns and replace with more positive and loving behaviors so you can be the bright and magical person you are AND so you can share your creative talents, intelligence and magic with a world that desperately needs you!
We all have the power to make 2012 bright and magical, so let's get started! Xx
