IT’S NOT TOO LATE TO SET YOUR NEW YEAR’S INTENTION by guest blogger Christine Hassler, author of EXPECTATION HANGOVER
 

We are fresh into 2015 armed with a bunch of resolutions or at the very least an optimistic attitude that this will be “our best year yet.” We vow to exercise more, get a better job, meditate regularly, fall in love, or find a different way to handle our stress. But does this really do us any good? Most of us start the new year with the greatest of intentions, yet by March (or even the second week of January) we may not find ourselves so resolved. We revert back to old patterns and beat ourselves up for not sticking to our resolutions. Could there be a better way to set ourselves for 2015 without ending up with an Expectation Hangover?

YES! We can resolve not to make any resolutions and instead engage in a cocreative process of reflection and intention setting. For the past ten years, I have had a special ritual that does not involve making any kind of resolutions, and I am thrilled to share it with you.

Step 1: Pick a day when you will have at least an hour to be undisturbed to consciously cocreate 2015. Set the date on your calendar and block it off. No rescheduling!

Step 2
: Create a sacred space for your ritual. Create the mood — get comfy, get quiet, light a candle, put on some music. Meditate for at least five minutes to tune in and to transition out of “doing” mode into “being” mode. If you have never meditated, all it takes is being still and listening to the sound of your breath. If your mind wanders, just bring it back to your breath. Meditating before you begin to manifest enables you to create and visualize from your authentic self rather than your ego.

Step 3
: After your meditation is complete and you are tuned in to your most authentic channel to download from the Divine, you are ready to start visioning your 2015! Begin by getting a blank sheet of unlined paper. I suggest you write at the top: “This or something better for the highest good of all concerned. And so it is.”

Step 4: Without thinking or analyzing, write down anything and everything that comes to mind that you would like to cocreate/manifest in 2015. Be specific, be creative, and think big; however, your list should be at least 70 percent possible and believable. Write until your brain is empty — don’t worry about being greedy! The Universe loves to be generous!!! Important: write everything in the present tense (as in, “I am...”) and use verbs to enthusiastically and specifically express what you want. For instance, “I am joyfully and easily securing a new job that is professionally fulfilling and offers me the opportunity to do what I love.”

Step 5: Choose a place to display your list where you can see it regularly. Treat it as something sacred. Or you can create a manifestation box and include your list as well as pictures and objects that are symbolic or meaningful to you.

Step 6: Frequently throughout the year — ideally, every day — review your list. Read it aloud and feel free to add to it. January is not the only time of the year in which you can call in what you want! I encourage you to think about the list frequently and believe in your manifestation power!

Throughout the year, observe with gratitude as things in your life begin to manifest. Celebrate and do not beat yourself up or get discouraged about what is not happening. Focusing more on what is abundant in our lives already is the best way to generate more abundance. And remember that sometimes our timeline and the Universe’s timeline may be different.

Resolve to live your life in alignment with what you truly want to manifest. Rid yourself of any emotional, mental, physical, or interpersonal clutter so that you can get out of your own way. The thing about the cocreation and manifestation is that they take action as well as thought and belief, so resolve this year to take steps to truly live your best life.
