Welcome to 2013
We have turned the calendar into the new year - 2013
- which brings with it a great excitement for that which is to
come while also allowing us to remember in reverence that which
we leave behind.
The year past has been a trying year for many and certainly for
the U.S. and for the world. We welcome 2013 with hope, yet we
know that we face many challenges - global warming, debt crisis,
health care trials, escalating violence. Still, in spite of the
challenges we face as a nation and as a world, I believe those in
the future will look back at us and see this time as a great
shift in our humanity.
As we become the ancestors and the history of a forgone era, we
will be seen as ushering in a time when people listened to their
inner stirrings and answered the call to become their greatest
self. In doing so, we become a society of sharing, using and
repurposing that which we have instead of worshiping the newest
material possession. We become better stewards of our planet
instead of using her resources to extinction. We live with
greater awareness of all sentient beings and offer our hands rather
than our backs to others.
We let go of our own fears of what is between the past and the
unknown future and we step forward with courage, fortitude and
certainty that we are on our right path, even when we do not know
where that path is taking us. We step up and step out as we are
called to a greater awareness of ourselves, our life's work, and
our commitment to help usher in a time of greater humanity, a
time of greater compassion for - and kindness to - all. We help
to usher in a time of peace and harmony for our planet.
I vow to you to do my best to live up to my calling this year of
2013. I ask that you help me hold the energy to do so as I will
hold the energy for you. We are not in this alone, but together,
and together we will move in a direction that when the future
looks back at us they will know a shift to greater humanity took
place and that we, their ancestors, made it possible for them to
live in greater harmony among themselves and with all life.
This new year brings forth opportunities to show
your growth and opportunities to demonstrate greater humanity to
all beings and to the world. At times it may feel as though you
do not have the strength to do all that is asked of you. Know
that you do.
This will be the year that tests your truths and beliefs. All
will be asked to stand on and stand for that which you value. In
this, friends will become foes and foes will become friends.
Whether friend or foe, compassion, patience, and reaching within
yourself to find understanding of the other will be called for.
Be aware of what you speak, but speak you must. This will become
clear as the year unfolds. This is not a year to be shy about
your values, but one to allow others to know of your beliefs
without forcing your values and beliefs on the other, but instead
to speak of them with conviction, listen to those whose values
and beliefs are different, and to find the common ground of
This is not a year to be caught in the ego's need to always be
right, but a year to let your Higher Power of your Divine
Guidance lead you to seek answers of collective understanding and
helpfulness. This is true of whether speaking of two individuals
seeking harmony or a nation within itself or nations of the
The common good of all must be sought. There is no other way.
The feminine energy of peace will - and must - prevail over the
strife this year will bring, and strife you will see and yet you
will also experience much harmony. The world is splitting itself,
so strife will continue - and escalate - as each of you reach for
The shift to obtain peace in your world has taken place. Harmony
for each individual is at hand. As each individual accepts
harmony and lives the meaning of this peace, this becomes the
collective whole. Peace for all, your world will then know.
This year you will notice a narrowing of the divisions between
people and between nations. This will not always seem so, but
true understanding and healthy compromise will be the order of
This year will be the last remnants of the old order as the new
harmony begins to permeate each life and each nation. At times it
may seem that permeation may be a trickle, but a trickle is the
beginning of a crack that grows larger into a stream that flows
into the ocean.
The outer world evolves as each individual evolves. You grow your
world as you grow yourself.

Ways You Can Be of Service
A new year is a time to reflect on the year past and
what we want for the year ahead. It is a time to think about and
act on the ways we want to live our lives. This is not an easy
time we are living through as we create the new story for our
planet and humanity. Our lives are busy and fuller than we
sometimes know what to do. We don't have time to do all we feel
we need - or want - to do for our own lives and those of our
families. How can we possibly be of service to others?
That thinking keeps us from using our lives to be of service to
our world. When we give to others, we add so much to our world.
And it doesn't have to take a lot of time. Here are three ways
you can give back and be of service in meaningful ways without
spending a lot of time and no money:
- If you're on Facebook or
another social media, share those postings that uplift you;
share postings of lost people and animals or people and
animals in need of help in your region of the country or
nationally if you have friends in other areas. Also, use
social media to help promote the products of friends and
people in whom you believe in such as telling your friends
about this newsletter.
- When you hear of someone
who needs help or you know of someone who needs to be
uplifted, simply say the person's name and say, "I
bless you." Then add, "And I bless myself."
This simple prayer helps to change the energy for the other
and for yourself as well. Use this prayer when you hear a
siren for the first responders as well as those to whom they
- If you live in the
country, as I do, you often see animals along the road who
lost their lives to a vehicle. A simple prayer will help
heal your heart as well as clear the energy for that
animal's transition. Here's my prayer: "I bless you; I
bless the one who took your life; I bless all who partake of
your giveaway; and I bless myself."
How to Keep Those New Year's Resolutions
They're easy to make . . . and just as easy to break
- those New Year's resolutions. But you don't have to break your
New Year's resolutions. Think of your resolutions as a promise to
yourself. Give some thought to what you really want to change,
and then give yourself permission to make the changes. The rest
Here are the tips that will help you keep those
Make Your Resolutions Realistic
It's easy to promise yourself that you'll lose
weight, meditate twice a day every day, get out of debt, be more
compassionate to yourself and others, get organized, etc., but if
you really don't want to do any of these, you'll last about a
week, if that.
Make a list of those things you do want to change in your life, and
then narrow the list down to one thing. That's right one thing.
We often overwhelm ourselves with trying to revamp our whole
life. Start easy. You can always make another resolution in a few
months once you have mastered the one you are making to yourself
Create a Visual Reminder and Track Your Success
A visual reminder such as a vision board or simple chart helps
motivate you on those days you do not want to keep to your
resolution. Let's say that you've vowed to walk every day. Make a
simple chart or use a calendar with a space where you can write
down the time spent walking and the length of the walk. Track
your success so you have a visual representation of your
Visualize the Steps Along the Way as well as Your Goal
Spend a few moments before you go to sleep and visualize your
goal and the reward that awaits you when you reach your goal.
From your goal, visualize the step you need to take tomorrow to
help you reach that goal. You may not know the step, but as you
are visualizing your goal, ask for tomorrow's step to be
revealed, and it will come. It may be quite clear or it may be
vague, but do your best. It will get easier as you continue.
Repeat the process when you first wake in the morning. Then take
that step toward your goal.
Replace and Reward
Resolutions are hard to keep because we fall back into our old
patterns until we are able to rewrite the old pattern. Replace
the old habit you want to break with a new habit. For example, if
you want to stop eating so much sugar, replace the sugary food
with a satisfying and healthier food such as a cup of herb tea
and a little bit of honey. Then give yourself a reward - which
can be a short-term reward such as calling a friend to have them
give you an atta girl or atta boy - or a long term reward such as
saving the money or donating the money spent on sugar snacks.
Never Quit Because of a Setback
Setbacks are part of changing our ways. When you find yourself
procrastinating instead of getting it done, return to your visual
chart and to visualizing the goal and tomorrow's step to that
goal. And never beat yourself up because you got off track. Just
gently-and firmly-bring yourself back.
Make it Fun
Enjoy the journey. If you have fun along the way,
life will have its own rewards.
