Since the beginning of December, we’ve taken a journey of setting our intentions for the new year. We began by looking at the people and things that worked well for us this year. Then we made a conscious decision to set our intention(s) for the coming year. After that, we made a strong commitment to the changes we are willing to make to turn our intentions into reality. And lastly, we will take one final check to make sure that our intentions are in line with our destiny.
Goals, change, and intentions are wonderful to have. However, if they are not in direct alignment with our overall vision for our lives, it may take longer than necessary to get to us where we want to be. So, how do you know that you are aligning with your destiny? Simply put, the changes you wish to make will feel like a welcomed relief instead of a forced change. Deep in your spirit, you have longed for this change and find it difficult to dismiss. But for whatever reason, you felt unable to make the changes. Also, once we get serious about making a change, life is pretty good about giving us what we need when we need it. We begin to experience people and things that are suddenly available to help us through the transition. This is why setting intentions are powerful. Because once we have determined what it is that we want, then made the commitment to bring them into fruition, we unknowingly give ourselves permission to see and accept all the resources available to us for success.
“Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead” (James 2:17 NIV). Have faith that you are a success. Actively put your plan into motion, and live as if you have already won the prize. Because no matter what is going on in your life right now, at this very moment, you are everything you need to become the person you want to be.
What positive changes are you making for 2015?
YOU are a magnificent reflection of your creator. No matter if you agree with this statement or not. The meaning of this statement remains authentic and very real.
How often have you traded your magnificence for people, places, or things that are beneath you? Are you a person that judges yourself harshly? Do you allow others to take advantage of your magnificence? Has someone hurt you so deeply and you struggle with letting go of the memories? Do you find yourself in the midst of a scary life transition and unsure how you will emerge victorious? Please understand that you are not alone. But more than anything, today I want you to STOP and TAKE TIME to ENJOY your magnificence. Yes YOU! It’s there, just give yourself permission to find your beauty.
START using your MAGNIFICENCE for an abundant life filled with love, beauty, balance, and health. The steps you take today will lead you closer into your magnificence tomorrow.
What ways are you MAGNIFICENT? Future Focused
In the game of poker, an Ace In the Hole means that one of the player’s down card is an ace. In the game of life it can mean a hidden strength or comfort. Sounds innocent enough, but depending on how well you use your ace determines how well you play the game.
I was talking to a dear friend the other day and she was telling me how she has pushed away alot of significant relationships in her life. She told me that being in a rocky marriage, rescuing adult children from their mistakes, health issues, and financial problems have all conspired to keep her from reaching out to her friends. Over a period of years, she has learned how to function without them. Guilt and shame were her primary reasons for not reaching up for help. Life is at a critical point, and she has found herself isolated, withdrawn, and totally disconnected from her power sources. After talking with her, she began to understand why keeping in close contact with her “”Ace In the Holes” on a regular basis is vital to her existance.
It is important that we have many healthy and solid friendships and activities to nourish our souls. They are the safety we need to weather life’s storms.
How many Aces do you have?
