2011 – The Year of Positive Changes, New Perceptions and Power Choices to make
The Newt Year is here. Its 2011 now. I would like to take this opportunity and personally wish you to forgive easily this year (to others as well as your self) and to be aware of your and other´s value everyday, to be peaceful and expecting only the best and to be abundant in every way you can imagine. Happy New Year!
I also wanted to share this great quote with you:
“U have been criticizing yourself for years & it hasn’t worked. Try approving of Urself & see what happens.”~Louis Proto
Have a goal of loving and appreciating your self more in this coming year and then practice this attitude with people around you – family, friends and even strangers. When you focus on love and appreciation you will attract it into your life more as a reflection on the change you made in your inner world. We all just want to be loved. Invite more love in and enjoy your new life unfolding right in front of your eyes.
The vision of the Future.
I remember when I was a little girl, I though that after the year 2000 we would all be living in all kinds of weird, floating futuristic buildings, have robots dusting our houses and doing our dishes for us (and I have to say that would be nice sometimes) and the whole world would feel like a Sci-Fi movie. While I am still waiting for that robot to get my dusting done, the dishwasher is a common reality and rest is yet to come I believe.
Today there is lots including all kinds of technologies that makes the world feel like a completely different place than what we knew just a decade ago. But the biggest difference I see is in the attitude of people that I meet today. More and more people are entertaining the idea of them being the creators of their own reality and dumping the whole victim mode. And I say, Hell yeahhhh…(excuse my language here, I just got really excited about this new trend).
Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life
The Law of Attraction sure got lots of attention in the last few years since the movie “The Secret” came out and is slowly being taken seriously. The world of physics is also catching up with people like Luise Hay, Wayne Dyer, Abraham Hicks and many others who are for a long time now saying: “Change your thoughts, change your life”.
Our perceptions are everything and a major manifesting tool. Do you just recycle the common perceptions/beliefs inherited from sources like your parents, teachers, news etc. to manifest your life?
Or do you consciously choose your beliefs and use them to manifest your life intentionally?
2011 – The Year of Intentional Manifesting
I would like to dedicate this year to learning how to manifest our lives intentionally, which means to be at choice when it comes to what kind of experience we will have in what we call the future. I really love Wayne Dyer’s : “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change”.
So what kind of consciousness/ perception do you function from right now? What are your common ways of thinking about your self and the world around you? Today, are you a victim or are you a creator of your reality? Its easy to find out which one is the mode you are in. The victim mode cannot be ON without the BLAME.
As long as there someone else responsible for the way you feel and you believe that they are the reason why your life is not what you want it to be, you are in the victim mode. On the other hand, for the creator there is no blame, there is just an awareness: I am aware that I am creating all my experiences. I am fully responsible for these experiences, but I am also fully capable of changing my reality if I desire so.
Changing Your life one day at the time
To exercise this new attitude of creating our own reality, we may need to start making new choices to develop new habits of thinking and being every day. If it sounds like an overwhelming concept, take the challenge one day at the time.
Have a goal of approaching each day in a new ways and allow your self to make mistakes as you go through the process of establishing the new habits that will help you to slowly grow into the person you are inspired to become.
Here is a little exercise: Write down the habits and skills you would like to define you in the near future. Be clear and specific. For example :
- I would like to be more of a straight forward, assertive person and to communicate with other people openly and honestly.
- I would like to be more relaxed in my social interactions and make new friends this year.
- I would like to meditate each morning for 10 minutes.
- I would like to be more organized this year and create routines for my self that will help me to achieve my goals faster .
- I would like spend more time with my family and take a few fun trips to reconnect with my loved ones.
Ask your self : What kind of attitudes and ways of being would improve the quality of my life dramatically?
And then every day, take ONE of these desired new characteristics and concentrate on it allowing your self to slip here and there knowing that it is natural when changing your habits. Exercise/demonstrate this desired skill/way of being as much as your awareness allows you to through out the day.
You may choose to exercise the new skill for a full week before you practice another one. Have fun with it and do what is exciting you at the moment. This simple plan and your willingness to change can manifest pretty big and significant changes, creating your new life one day at the time.
The Year of Rabbit
Numerologists are saying that this is suppose to be better than the the last one. The year of the Rabbit is traditionally associated with home and family, artistic pursuits, diplomacy, and keeping the peace. Therefore, 2011 is very likely to be a relatively calmer one than 2010 both on the world scene, as well as on a personal level.
I think its always up to us how we use these new opportunities. The world we live in changing so fast now and that means we may need to be more flexible in the way we thinks and do things every day. We can see this fact as an obstacle or it can be a foundation for creating lifestyle that we truly enjoy and that better reflects at who we are and our purpose in life.
Start today, be patient with your self and make sure to acknowledge your efforts at the end of the day knowing that you will do even better tomorrow.
Happy manifesting in 2011!
