new you new year

“And as we let our own light shine,

We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.”

From “Our Deepest Fear,” by Marianne Williamson

What if, for one moment, we accepted the idea that everything is okay. What if everything was suddenly perfect, just as it is now, flaws and all, out of place, untidy, falling apart. Everything is exactly as it should be. For just this second, you don’t need to strive, you don’t need to control, you don’t need to look, act, talk, or behave any special way, you don’t need to worry about anyone or anything, you don’t need to do anything, except breathe. What if you were just quiet for a moment, while you did nothing but allow. Just be.

Imagine, if you will, that every dream you have ever had is now a reality. Your life is, for all intents and purposes, perfect, right here, right now.  This, my friends, is not some fantasy; this is a world we can all create for ourselves if we just allow ourselves to access the infinite creativity that exists within us. The artist Kelly Rae Roberts calls herself a “possibilitarian,” and she writes on her website about how she encourages others: “Because when you step forward as a Possibilitarian — and share the truth about how you created your beautifully messy, magnificently complicated & exquisitely joyful life and career — you give everyone else permission to dream bigger, be braver, and create what they want. And just like that, the impossible simply isn’t.”

As we finish another year on this wondrous and beautiful planet together, I want us all to take a step back and give ourselves a collective pat on the back. I know there was sadness, tragedy, evil and devastation this year too, but for this second, let us set our intentions to go forward from a place of believing that anything is possible, and that we are now living in and creating the world of our dreams, and that each one of us deserves nothing but comfort, joy, and love. I ask that we start believing that we can create any world we want to create, and if we work together, we can move to a place where each of us is allowed to shine. I firmly believe that a divine spark exists within every single one of us that only asks us to allow it to come into being, that we need only to turn down our noisy minds and let it lead us to where we were meant to be. My deepest wish for everyone for this New Year is that you find that spark within yourself and allow it to help you create a world you previously thought was impossible.

Happy New Year
