2012: A Year of Shifting Consciousness
A New Year is amongst us and with it, we move one step closer to raising our vibrations and consciousness.
Balance is ever so important as we approach a time when us humans will begin to become more conscious of how we respect the earth, each other and ourselves. In essence, we are becoming more aware.
It is never too late to begin your own journey of remembering who you are and where you came from.
Here are a few simple ideas to help you get the new year started off on a positive path:
1. Make a list of things you would like to accomplish by the end of the year. This list need not include the details of how, but instead the intention to actually complete these tasks.
2. Acknowledge your past accomplishments. Look back at some of the difficult moments from past years and quickly jot down the lessons you've learned from them. Give yourself credit for overcoming those obstacles.
3. Forgive. Forgive those you've felt have wronged you and forgive yourself for making your own mistakes. A buddhist proverb says it best: "Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned."
4. Be open to new experiences. Every moment is an opportunity for you to grow and evolve - as long as you allow yourself the experience. Creating rigid expectations takes away from being aware of the present moment and may limit your potential understanding, growth and evolution.
