What Are You Willing to Be, Do & Have in 2012?

Release & Let Go of What No Longer Serves You. 
Claim What You Are Willing to Be, Do & Have in 2012.

If you don't participate in a group that has a burning bowl ritual or missed it this year, create your own.

Take a piece of paper and write what you are willing to let go of this year. 
What no longer serves you? 

  • sloth
  • a body less than fit
  • complaining
  • lack
  • disorganization
  • loneliness
  • negative outlook
Now take this paper and put it in the fireplace or go outside and safely set the paper on fire in a stone pit, clay pot, or grill.  Consciously vow that you ARE ready to release these things from your life and to accept what is yours for your HIGHEST & BEST LIFE IN 2012.

Wait, you aren't done yet!

On a second piece of paper, write on one side what you are ready to BE, Do & HAVE this year.  Are you ready to accept these in your life NOW?

  • a prosperous life
  • companionship
  • a fit, strong, or flexible body
  • happiness
  • peace of mind
  • a new car
  • service to others
  • a light unto the world
  • an author
  • the perfect job for your skills and needs
Turn this paper over and on the backside write what actions you are willing to commit to in order to BE, DO & HAVE this life.  Yes, the Universe needs a bit of commitment and some elbow grease on your part!

Are you willing to:
  • make time for exercise
  • Eat more fruits and vegetables
  • work at not complaining
  • being grateful for what you have
  • be of service to others
  • give monetarily to causes of your choice
  • put aside time to write
  • putting in the time and effort for right employment
Put this paper in an envelope and put it somewhere safe (Your tax file, address book or ...), or give it to a trusted (organized) friend and ask that it be given back or mailed to you around Thanksgiving for the year's review.

There are many versions of how to do this.  You could start with a Gratitude List for 2011, but whatever works for you, the premise is the same.  A willingness to release what no longer serves you and setting your intentions for your highest and best life.

YOU may want to keep this in a journal where you check in on the letter monthly to stay focused on your desires and building motivation and momentum.  there's no right or wrong way.

When I received my 2011 letter back in November I realized I had achieved 2 out of 3 of my desires for the year:

good decisions on my transportation needs (bye-bye Rendezvous-hello Juke)

 better health habits - Eating Plant Strong, loosing 30 lbs, and lower cholesterol

Wait no longer!  The Universe is ready, willing, and able to give you what is in your best interest.  Are you ready to commit, work towards, and accept it?

May 2012 be the year you step further into the best version of you and let your light shine! 

Namaste ~ Jude
