New beginnings mark the passage of time but also the passage of human inclinations, desires, and promises. To hold oneself to a promise of change is a noble thought but to act upon it is a challenge that over the passage of time may prove impossible. Far better to make no strict promises but to live every day in the moment, learning to stay aware of what is important and what isn’t, to act instead of promise, to do rather than say, to be alive in each breath as much as possible. Rather than mark a beginning, mark an ever-evolving moment in time.
The New Year of Intent has barely begun. Remember your healing intent and stay upon its steady path of change. It’s so easy to forget and yet so necessary to change, for change is the agent of transformation. Envision yourself each day transformed. See yourself as you dream of being. Tell yourself each day, “I am that,” and walk onward in the direction of change. No matter how many times you forget, change is always ready to meet you once again and guide you along. Take the hand of change and travel on another day with your healing intent firmly in mind.
A symbolic day in time and space, the first day of a new year suggests new beginnings, new life, new pacts, new directions. Begin anew with a positive intent to be more kind and loving first of all, to self and other, to be open to what may come, all the possibilities that are possible, all the changes that will present. Take each day calmly and with patience, asking the self to remain as committed to a new way of life each day forth as you are on this first day. Let love always be your guide as you travel your path of heart toward your innocence and your highest self. Happy New Year!
Sending you all love and best wishes for a wonderful New Year,
Are you keeping your promises to yourself? Continuously check your alignment with your new path, with your intent to change. Focus on your feet, literally, on one step at a time, on what your feet are doing in each moment, on where they are taking you, on the road ahead of you. Don’t worry about what was or what is to come. Focus only on the moment that is, on each step as you take it, and where you are going. Reaffirm your intent to change each day, before you take that first step, making sure to set your foot down upon your path of heart. With your own heart’s intent firmly stated and planted in each step you take, renew your promises to yourself and carry on with a smile on your face, with positive thoughts in your mind, and with determination in every step. Know that you can do it. You are doing it. One day and one happy step at a time.
When it’s time to make a big change you will finally know. You will have no doubt. Set your intent, firm up your will, and declare to yourself alone that it is time. And then take your first step. It need be only small, but even the smallest step in a new direction will bring on more than you know. A whole new journey awaits you. Let it begin.
