2024 Happy New Year!
To all of you lovely souls,
If you happen to come across this message then congratulations, you are some of the lucky few. As the world starts to change, and it is always changing there are some things that might be helpful to know.
The world that we live in is vast, the universe is expansive and growing. To give you a more philosophical idea about life then you will need to remember Plato’s “Allegory of the Cave.” If you are unfamiliar then you should look it up now.
2024 is an 8 year in numerology, the year of the Dragon. It will be a year of transformation. What this means is that we have the ability to create the reality we want to live in. I would focus on you as an individual, because that will inform our collective consciousness.
The most important thing to know is that you chose to be here at this time. This is the place to be, despite all the chaos of what is happening all around. Everyone likes a good story, this is the greatest. You are in the Hollywood story. The funny part is that Hollywood gave you a glimpse when they created “The Matrix” over 25 years ago. You are a SOUL having a temporary experience in a human body. You can choose to awaken to this or not, it doesn’t really matter. What does matter is that you choose to be peaceful, kind, and loving to yourself and others.
Jenn Palmer, my wonderful co-host on Brave Journey Within, who is an Intuitive Energy Healer recently published an episode on manifestation. I also wrote a blog on manfiestation with some practical tips (here). As I previously stated you have the ability to create the life you want to live. While many sometimes confuse manifestation with material things there is much more to it than that. You get to choose how you show up in your life. To BE present, and to BE in the NOW. The definition of Mindfulness is to be present, on purpose, and in the present moment nonjudgmentally. Be intentional in your life.
One technique that Ken Elliott says to consider is to think in this way:
“I am in my future, … (think of the future your want with visualization- you can be specific or not)
… and I am so very grateful.”
One thing I want all my clients to realize is that they are powerful. You are not a victim unless you allow yourself to be so, even if you have been victimized. YOU have the power to heal your life. There are countless examples of people overcoming tremendous odds in this regard, whether it is physical, mental, or medical.
One of the most power things you can do to supercharge all of these things is to be grateful. Practice GRATITUDE. While this may be self-evident for some of you if you need evidence, Stanford Professor Andrew Huberman, PhD of the Huberman Lab Podcast says that it is some of the best ways he has found to create his best life. He writes 5 things he is grateful for daily. Ken Elliott recommends 7, this is relative, but the practice is powerful, you choose what works for you.
Learn to BE GRATEFUL for the wonderful things in your life. If this is hard for you pay closer attention. There are many people in your life and things you can find to be grateful for, and if that is a challenge then you have work to do to SEE THE GOOD in your life. Seeing the good in your life is a technique, as we are not hardwired to this with our reptile brains, where we are often in fight or flight mode.
We will choose what happens next. BELIEVE you have that power and choose accordingly. Don’t be afraid, be strong, and courageous. BE KIND and LOVING. May we all have a safe and joyful year!
