Just as the leaves on the trees all around us are changing colors for the inevitable falling to the ground to wither away; so should the people, places and things that are no longer serving our highest good. Nature has built-in mechanisms that galvanize change to sustain balance but how many of us resist the ‘nature’ within ourselves, even if/when that change is creating havoc, discomfort and chaos in our lives? I, for one am guilty of such and a glaring example in this regard, that I would automatically look for the good in a person first and foremost, even at the behest of a greater discernment showing me the opposite BUT yet and still, I would ignore the season that was forging a change within me; to be disappointed or let down again and again. I have a catch phrase that goes ‘for some of US to learn, WE have got to burn’… This statement was born out of countless experiences and observations of resisting change for the better in some form or another. It is time that we examine the matter at hand, while asking ourselves - why do so many of us repeat patterns and pathology that doesn’t foster balance so reflective like that in nature? Make no mistake about it, we are creatures of habit. We usually stay in one season (so to speak) year around, although external change is constant and fluid. The external natural world shows is us that it is not possible to grow, evolve or maintain a healthy balance if one is not changing as the tides of life demands us to do so.
We are in a new cycle every year around this time and for this season, many of us set goals and New Year resolutions but according to forbes.com, statistics show that only 8% of people achieve their New Year’s goal (read article). It is one thing to set a goal for ‘change’ but it is another if our intent is not strong and held-up to the highest order and so it seems that most of us do can’t seem to muster enough will power OR have access to key information in order to get into the range of the 8% who achieve their respective goals! Therefore, I have decided to dedicate this month’s theme to embracing change. It’s all about building upon and acknowledging a new beginning that can and will foster a better version of self; A NEW YOU, so to speak! Before you review the articles, videos and links that I have provided this time around. Please allow me to share a few of my own tips that has worked for me and others that I’ve shared them with;
CLEAN HOUSE (literally)
Get rid of letters, papers, emails, furniture, clothes, shoes or any ‘tangible’ items connected to experiences and memories tied to trauma, gloominess; failed relationships, heart-ache, fear, sadness, defeatism or depression. All things hold energy and emotions and for obvious reasons and there is no need to hold on to things that are aiding in holding your vibrations down.
REARRANGE AND/OR REMODEL YOUR DWELLINGS
Most of us spend more time in our homes than any other place on earth and what better place to ‘change’ when we are ready for change, than this extension of ourselves? I have found that rearranging furniture and even repainting walls to a vibrant color, helps to invigorate and generate wonderful energy streams and space for our best intention to manifest; upon making this change, you may feel an instant sense of order. You may feel livelier, balanced and vibrant state of mind and being-ness.
LET GO OF PEOPLE AND SITUATIONS THAT ARE NOT REFLECTING THE CHANGE YOU ARE OR WANT TO SEE
This is definitely one of the hardest things for so many of us to do, especially when one has deep emotional ties and connections to that particular person, place or thing. The reality is that when and if we hold on to such things, they affect and 'infect' us in ways that we are not always consciously aware of. If such person(s) is a relative or a job that you cannot afford to break away from right away, take baby steps in the direction towards change and be relentless; be consistent.
GIVE YOURSELF A MAKE-OVER
It is a proven fact that when a person allow themselves a make-over that is favorable to them, he/she is far more likely to project a sense of 'favor' and attract energies that could reinforce change and elevate their self-confidence. Yes, we all know that change comes from within but I have learned that a positive external-self image can ignite 'the core' to strive for a matching ‘internal’ self.
PUT YOURSELF FIRST
Some will say that putting yourself first, is the most selfish things that one can do but I disagree... If we are not pampering, loving and giving honor to ourselves first and foremost; how can we be of any good to show and do any of this in a healthy and balanced way for others? When you get paid for, pay yourself first; even if it’s but only a few bucks! Consider how every situation you are asked to be apart of or attract with your BEST interest in mind foremost.
HELP OTHERS WHO GENUINELY WANT HELP
When we help others who genuinely want the help; we are essentially co-creating and reinforcing energy streams under the wings of the ‘law of attraction’. The help that we give to one who is genuine will ultimately be the help we will attract for our genuine selves. You see?
There are many more tips that I would love to share in this regard but I will stop here. Please take the time to review the links, videos and articles as they are all providing great ways to expand and create that GREATER version of SELF that is so eager to BE.
