Flow in the New Year (January 2011)
Happy New Year! In lieu of my monthly musings, I wanted to share with you an inspiring message that landed in my inbox yesterday from none of then "The Universe" itself -- aka Mike Dooley from "The Secret". It said....
Soon the new year starts, so now's a great time to:
1. Wipe the slate clean.
2. Focus upon what you really want.
3. Chart your course.
Well... only if you want to risk having to repeat these steps for the same wishes next year! Maybe this is splitting hairs, but here's an adventurous alternative:
1. Give thanks that life is... just as it is (and that it's been... just as it's been). Because of it, you're now "READY."
2. Define what you want in terms of the end result. Don't worry about the hows, or even the course. KNOW that what you want is ALREADY yours in spirit, by divine LAW, just focus on the certainty of this ownership, understand it, claim it, and "it will be on earth, as it is in heaven (spirit)."
3. LET THE UNIVERSE show you the way via your impulses and instincts that appear as you take inspired action. Don't worry that your first steps seem silly or futile. And if you don't know what to do, do anything! Go! Get busy! Do not insist on intermediary successes, only upon the end result.
2011 is going to be your year (it already is),
I love this message because it encourages us to get in touch with our instincts and to move from that place of deeper knowing. This is precisely the potential of our yoga practice. Remember, the heart often speaks more softly than the mind, so here is to listening more closely in 2011.
Om Shrim Maha Lakshmiyei Swaha. May your year be filled with joy & abundance!
