A Blissful New Year
By Lauren Catanese
Happy 2018 South Walton! Another year is here! How Blessed we are to have the opportunity to create and live a life of our dreams. Sharing with one another, growing, and allowing our authentic selves to shine; letting go the year’s before and looking to the present moment to support us in where we want to go. Deepak Chopra says, “That if a deep desire lives in your heart, a dream that is part of your soul’s fiber, then a path exists to bring it to life.” I love this quote because sometimes we feel that it is all on us to make our dreams come true and that we are the only ones wanting it to happen. The life you dream of living, the visions, the feelings, are within you for a reason, and not to be a constant reminder of a life you will never lead. Your dreams should guide you and ignite the fire within you to keep reaching, taking steps, and believing. Our deepest desires are the very footprints that wish to land you exactly where you want to be. It’s the fulfillment you seek. And everything you need to get there is in you right now!
What do you want? How do you want to feel? The New Year invites in new energy, light, and manifesting power to bring to life our desires. It is easier than you think, and to actualize them requires no thinking at all. You feel your way to them. Follow your bliss. Let’s just say that what we are feeling within is what we will experience on the outside. We are vibrational beings, we are made up of energy. So to get to where we want to go we have to feel it on the inside first.
Manifesting your New Year:
- First decide how you want to feel this year? Peace? Love? Abundant? Healthy?
- Then close your eyes and imagine yourself feeling that way now. Visualize what you need to in order to feel that emotion. So, for example, if you want to feel peace imagine a moment or experience that when it happens you will feel peace. Allow the emotion to completely manifest, and stay there as long as you want to. As within so without.
- After, notice any new ideas that come to you. This is guidance that is there to help lead you to where you want to go.
- Then take action. Trust in the loving ideas you get.
Make time for yourself to practice feeling your way to your dreams. It can be just a few minutes or longer. You can practice this as much as you want. In fact the more the better. You are conditioning your manifesting muscles! It is a powerful ability to bring to life your dreams. They are unique to you and have been a part of you since before you were born. Do everyone a favor and allow them to blossom. The world needs your authentic gifts! Believe in them and don’t let them fade away. It does take courage. It does take trust. But you are capable. Remember the path exists, just follow your bliss.
Looking forward to magical New Year!
