Let the New Year and the restorative energy of winter provide you with an opportunity to renew. Be present to the energy of the season: contemplation, rest, tranquility and peace. Let go of the surface stress and look within and embrace your personal wisdom. Honor yourself by realizing how you have grown and acknowledge what you have learned in the past year. Consciously release anything that does not serve your highest good. Let go of anything that weighs you down or follows you around and interferes with you living fully and designing a life you love so you can start fresh in 2012.
This can be done in a number of ways. You can write down what you wish to let go of and burn, bury or rip up and throw it away metaphorically releasing it. It can be done with affirmations, intentions and prayers. Having a conversation with friends, supporting one another in the process and vowing to hold each other accountable for creating what you desire. Life is a continuous flow of new beginnings and endings. Every day and each year is a new opportunity to celebrate life. A time to start fresh, create anew and to manifest the next year of your life.
