I know many people get busy with Christmas and preparing for the holidays but for me not only is December a time for completing projects before Christmas and the New Year, but its also an opportunity to celebrate my birthday, slow down, take stock and take time to renew my energy and creativity.
2012 is the most important event in Earth’s history, but it is not well understood, even by those who claim prophetic visions of the future. We do know that a great planetary Shift in consciousness has been forecast by numerous sources throughout history, including tribes with long histories on the planet such as the Mayans, the Hopi, Lakota, Inuit, and the Maori. Often, the prophecies predict cataclysmic changes on Earth caused by drastic changes in weather, geomagnetic pole shifts, or massive earthquakes.
The Mayan prophecies are most quoted. According to Carlos Barrios, a student of the Mayan prophecies, the Fourth World finished on 16th August, 1987, the day of the Harmonic Convergence. At that point, the world entered a time of major transition, with the possibility of environmental destruction, social chaos, war, and on-going Earth changes. This period of instability and transition will continue until December 21, 2012, which begins the Fifth World, a new era of harmony and love.
With that in mind, it is also all about preparing myself for planning and creating 2013, take a moment right now and think about four most important questions:
1. What do you need to let go in 2012?
2. What experience do you have to achieve what you are set to do in 2013?
3. In what areas of your life do you need to grow
4. what is your contribution you want to make in 2013 to the world and the planet?
Of course, in my busy time there is time for fun too, so don’t forget that too. Currently I’m in a mad rush to finish my current projects with HealOneSelf and The Velvet Journey, spend time to think about the book I want to write and complete my tax returns.
One of the principles that I follow in my day to day life is to clear a space before creating something new. This works on a physical/ four-dimensional level but also on a temporal level, clearing the past so you can focus on the future.
Many people create New Year’s resolutions and plans in January but because they haven’t dealt effectively with their past habits they have difficulty sticking to those resolutions. Taking some time to reflect on what worked and what didn’t work during the year, will help you more powerfully plan for a great 2013.
Here is a great exercise for clearing the past and creating the right head space for planning 2013. Spend at least 10 minutes answering these questions in a notebook or journal
- What have been your achievements up until now?
- What have been the disappointments or regrets?
- What did you not do that you had intended to do?
- What are you proud of from the year?
- What goals will you carry over into 2013 and what will you drop or rethink?
- Who can you forgive?
- What can you forgive yourself for?
- What are you grateful for?
- What was the theme of 2013 for you?
- What did you learn from the 2013?
- Is there anything you can complete before end of 2012 that would make a difference to your life? If so complete it
That at least is something to be grateful for, make a start by adopting “Gratitude is my attitude”.
And there is just one thing to do CELEBRATE!
