Set up the page. Drag a text box into place. Watch the flashing curser blink. What to write going into 2018? I'm not going to pull you through the New Year's resolution stuff such as got to start exercising, changing up the diet thing. You get enough of that already in the media. Why plan anything at all! Living in the moment, the present, your breath is enough. Can't change the past; can't bring the future faster, but one can centre in the present by being still, even if one has to escape a busy household by slipping into the washroom for a while for some quiet time.
Let me begin with a belated Happy New Year! How are you? How are you feeling? Without any implied negativity or judgment, really, how are you? What are you seeking? Winter is most often a time to reflect and take stock of the year passed, especially around New Year's. Maybe there have been some big lessons, heart break, or challenges which are still being worked through. And maybe, it has been a year full of joy. Hopefully, you are moving forward without too many scars as light is always born out of darkness.
Rather than focus on what has transpired and wishing/hoping for what might happen in the future, let's think about the present; what's going on right now, this day, this moment. But what led you to today, to make you the person you are at this moment?
"You are the sum of all your parts.
Many of us are self-critical and even self-damning without getting to know or truly forgiving the beautiful person inside. Part of reconciling is to take stock of what in life has transpired. Reflection can make clear those events, mistakes, poor habits, unsavory patterns if viewed objectively. But, only by taking action to release the aforementioned, may you move forward to finding more of yourself within.
So . . . how can you do that? Here is a simple sequence of actions to help you.
Wishing you much well-being and peace
If you are 'finding' that you wish to begin a self-healing or spiritual journey, maybe think about taking some Reiki classes. Reiki Level I at Tender Heart Healing is being offered January 12-13, 2018.
