My dear friends, we love you so very much,
Happy New Year! Happy New You! Happy New Now! As so many of you make your resolutions and intentions for the coming year, we remind you today that while your New Year is a beautiful marker and milepost, you have the opportunity to re-create your life – and yourself– in every “new now.”
You can celebrate each moment as a chance for a change. With every thought, every breath, and every choice, you can release the old and look forward to the new. In every “new now,” you can become a happier, healthier, more abundant, more loved, and more loving version of yourself. With every new thought, your life begins to move in new directions. Every moment, your body is undergoing massive transformation, with billions of cells leaving their little bodies and new, fresh, healthy ones being born.
Now you are new… and now again.
If you want to create change in your life, start now. Become new right here, right now. What thoughts no longer serve you? Are you tired of feeling tired? Then dear ones dream of feeling refreshed, energetic, and happy. Focus on any moments when you feel good. Look for them. Notice your improved feelings first. Think thoughts that don’t drag you down. Now. Right here, right now, think a thought that makes you feel more refreshed, energized, and eager for life on planet earth.
You might think to yourself, “I love my cozy bed. I feel so comforted by my covers and blankets. Right before I drift off to sleep, I feel refreshed.” You might think of someone who uplifts you, and suddenly you feel more energized. You might think of a food that thrills you, a song that makes you feel like moving, or a show you like. These are simple thoughts, but now, and now, and now again, you are made new.
You can create the new you, who you want to be, right here, right now, and now again.
So many of you want rapid change and yet refuse to change now. Many of you want to lose weight but focus on heavy thoughts. Many of you want to eat healthier but focus on punishing yourselves with diets that don’t titillate your taste buds. You could instead dream of feeling wonderful and eating foods you love. Then, dear ones, the new you, in your new now, will attract a “diet” or “healthy eating” ideas that turn you on as well as tune you up.
Many of you want to get in shape, but thinking about exercise feels like an exercise in drudgery itself. In your new now, it would be far kinder to imagine feeling good in your body and participating in an activity that makes your cells buzz with anticipation. If you use your mind in this fashion, it won’t be long before you want to move. You may be inspired to turn on one of your favorite songs and tap your toes. You may feel motivated to put on an outfit that makes you feel like moving. You may start to treat yourself like a beautiful and worthy person right here and now and wait till inspiration hits later. Now you are new. Why not create the new you that you want to be?
Suppose you want to be more organized but feel overwhelmed. Imagine, right here and now, the feeling of walking in your home and knowing exactly where things are and what you are doing on a given day. Imagine flowing through your days with ease. If you don’t have a great imagination, look at pictures of organized homes and watch videos of people who seem to have managed their lives. Right here, right now, you can focus on the feeling you want to feel. Now is new. Now you can find and feel the energy you want to enjoy on a regular basis, and your days will begin to flow in a more harmonious way.
Suppose you want a romantic partner in your life. In this very instant, you can conjure up the lover within. You can easily, if you’re willing, find something or someone in your life to love and appreciate right now. Perhaps you luxuriate in your soft pillows or love the adoring way your dog looks at you. You can enjoy the intoxicating fragrance of a freshly squeezed orange for breakfast and look in the mirror with rapt appreciation, seeing yourself as you wish a lover would. Right here and now, you can begin to be the person that you imagine you will be in the relationship you want. Think about how you would eat, dress, speak, and act. Would you be a better you if someone were there to admire you? Now is new. Be that gracious, loving, appreciative, self-accepting version of yourself right now.
We could share examples forever, but the bottom line is simply this: In this new now, you can begin to focus with anticipation and joy on what you seek. In this new now, you can look for the good. In this new now, you can find the glass half full, the silver lining, and all that is right in your life. In this new now, you can start to become the person you want to be.
So this year, commit to being loving and kind to yourself. Commit to thinking thoughts that make you feel delicious. When old, exhausting or discouraging thoughts come up, do your best to switch to gentler, kinder, more encouraging ones.
You deserve your own love, dear ones. You deserve to feel good. You deserve to think thoughts that vibrate to everything and anything you want to experience here on this earth. The holidays are over, but you can get Present, and in each here and now, give yourself the gift of the life you want to allow and attract and ultimately live. Happy New Year, dear ones. Happy New You! You are already changed having read our words.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.
