Happy New Year 2021
On this first day of the year 2021, I would like to reach out and send you my best wishes.
I use a little prayer from The Way Of Mastery every night before I close my eyes. It goes like this:
I release and forgive this day. It has been perfect. And it is done.
Today I feel that this is also a perfect way to start a new year. I see so many messages that go along the lines of ‘let’s make 2021 a better year’, ‘may we move back to the light’, 'surely 2021 will bring better times' etc. If we package our intention like this, then we actually keep holding on to the old year.
There is even a sense of resentment at the ‘lack’ of old year. How it didn’t perform in the way we wanted. How it didn’t deliver and caused us anguish and pain. By including this in our wishes for 2021, we actually bring the old year into the new.
You miss the present moment and focus on the past which then informs your future.
Or perhaps it's the Law of Attraction in force. When we say I want this to be better than what I have, I want less of… or any of these variants, the Universe doesn’t ‘hear’ the 'I don’t want…' it just sees us focussing on that which we don’t want and then gives us more of it.
For sure 2020 did bring us unexpected experiences. Many feel it's been the worst year of their lives. Many feel that it has changed everything. But remember that our perception defines what we see in the world. It’s not that there was less light, less love, less joy in 2020… it’s that we didn’t see it. Many of us instead decided to focus on the drama. We see the drama outside of ourselves, not realising that we actually are the creator of the dramas. We can always create a drama... it's an easy thing to do. But the light is always with us, always in our hearts, always accessible. This may be harder to do, but it can be done. And the more we make the choice to see it – to bless it and to appreciate it – the more we are given.
So on this day, the 1 January of 2021 I say:
I release and forgive the old year. It has been perfect. And it is done. I appreciate my life and all that is given to me, and I am open to receive as I give.
To me every day is a blessing and a joy. Some days I wake up and don’t feel it straight away. On those days I check in with my heart, with the oneness with all beings that resides in my heart. I say hello to the new day and welcome it in. May it bring all that is needed for me to be of service and for me to extend love to the world. I do it through my work as much as I do it through the smiles I share with friends or the meals I prepare for me and my husband. Love can be extended everywhere at any time and it doesn't cost a thing.
This is how I will greet the new year too. I trust that all that is presented to me is exactly the right thing at the right time. I cannot fail. Only my ego perceptions and ego expectations can fail.
Here’s my wish for you: May your 2021 bring you all the good, the holy and the beautiful you already have within you. May you share it with the world and shine your light brightly through your thoughts, your words and your actions.
Thank you, as always, for reading my blog posts. I look forward to more times to share with each other in the year ahead.
