I know that at this time of year many people talk about new beginnings, dreams, ambitions and goals but 2018 for me is most definitely a new year with new opportunities, new beginnings and the desire to be as successful at what I do as is humanly possible.
I don’t make new year resolutions but this year I have decided to look at what I want to see, feel, have achieved or be doing by 31st December 2018. Now I know what that looks like I can work back and implement learning and actions to achieve them.
Briefly looking back (as you must sometimes to see how far you have come and what you have accomplished), I see that 2017 was a year for listening to my body, taking better care of myself, seizing opportunities every time they arrived, learning, listening to those who I came into contact with and setting my sights on what was really the very essence of who I am.
In 2017 I stepped into my own space and found the home I had been searching for, for so long. It was within me.
I am a healer. That doesn’t just mean working through my gifts of massage and reiki but through listening to those in need of being heard, taking a positive approach to my life and sharing any wisdom or thoughts that come to me to hopefully instill that positivity in others and, in discovering me, helping others do the same and take a step forward on their voyage on this planet.
Healing people through massage, reiki, music, speech and words, creative therapy, nature, energy and love. It’s what I do. These are the gifts I have been blessed with and if I don’t use them I am avoiding my divine purpose. I include energy in this (hence ‘The Energy Magnet’), because that is who and what everything on this planet (and therefore the planet itself) is made from.
As we move through life we interact with plant, animal, human, object, all of which are energy in one form or another and as you know if, for example, you waft your hand through smoke it moves and maybe disappears – this happens with every single interaction you have in life – you interact and you change the position or state; you impact even on the smallest scale. Energy is all we are and you can make this a positive or negative experience. I wonder what impact you have on your environment? Positive or negative. Think about your words, your actions – are they can’t, won’t, hate, don’t, shouldn’t or fail or I am, can, will, love, power, success?
I wander away from where I began – reflection and new beginnings – take this first few days of a new year to think about what you want your year to be – you impact, you control, you have and make choices that will make it all you want it to be. Yes you may fall a little (that is how we learn) or a curved ball may take you off course for a moment (that is how we find our path) but if you are really strong in what you want and have plans in place to achieve them, what could possibly stop you? Only you.
Take stock of what last year gave you – everything has learning to be gained. I had some fairly low lows but they taught me lessons and more importantly I learnt from them. Once you have looked briefly back, turn around because that is it gone – it is no longer available to you – forward is the direction and there will be many paths to follow but you are in control and may choose whatever looks and feels right for you – for you I add, not someone else – your heart and your head may battle and only you can decide which to follow (I actually always listen to my gut) – this life is short and made for living. Live, don’t exist.
I wish you the most beautiful, successful, fun and happy 2018. No life is perfect but if we didn’t have the lows how would we ever learn to appreciate the highs? As I type away here, in front of me on my wall are seven achievements I will be experiencing by the end of this year and alongside each is a photograph to remind me why I live this life, why I love my life and why I am on this amazing planet earth. I wish you all well. I wish this planet and all riding on it well.
