color bulletJanuary 2014 ~ Forecast for the Year: Wishes Fulfilled 

2014 is a year of Wishes Fulfilled and of setting intentions for the highest possible vision you can imagine for yourself and for the world.

A year for letting go of old habits, patterns and destructive behaviors that keep you from being all you can be and having all you can have.

It is a time to allow let yourself to trust your own intuition and go where your heart is leading you, no matter what anyone else "thinks" is right for you.

This is a time of seeing the world with new eyes and allowing yourself to be part of a new world that is being created along with many others like you who want a better world than we have now.

Take some time at the beginning of the year to set intentions for what YOU want.  

  • What are your greatest desires for your life?  Write them down. 
  • What are your greatest desires for the world?  Write them down

There is great power in the written word.  And, you need to cultivate the feelings of those wishes and desires, also. 

Throughout the year, re-visit your list of possibilities and let yourself imagine how you feel when those wishes are fulfilled.  Imagine that right now, all of your wishes are fulfilled.  FEEL how that feels and let that energy fill you and expand you.  Use that energy of possibilities and good feelings to fertilize your dreams and desires regularly.  Allow yourself to dream bigger and to think bigger than you have ever thought before and to feel better than you have ever felt before.

And just as important as setting new intentions, let go of old stuff that no longer serves you.  Allow yourself to let go of any old "baggage."   Imagine that you are filling your suitcases with all that old "stuff" and taking them to the local dump, then washing your hands of it.

Clean out your closets or garage or basement or attic with the intention of getting rid of old "stuff" that no longer serves you.

Clean your home and your office with the same intention.

New habits to practice this year:

  1. Smile at strangers.  Smile at family, friends and neighbors, of course.
  2. Help someone every day or as often as you have the opportunity, with no strings attached.
  3. Allow others to help you and feel grateful to be so blessed.
  4. When someone does something that you donít like, say "Isnít that cute!" and stay out of judgment about who they are or why they might have done that.
  5. Stay away from blame and shame ó of yourself and others.
  6. Forgive everyone and everything, including forgiving yourself for past mistakes.  Forgive yourself for judging others and forgive yourself for judging yourself too harshly.
  7. Each morning, wake up and know that something wonderful is happening.  Allow yourself to feel wonderful, no matter what else is going on in the world or in your own life.  Find something to feel good about every morning to start your day on a positive note.  Meditate, read something inspirational or do whatever makes you feel good.
  8. Each evening before going to sleep, focus on one wonderful thing that happened and let the warmth of it surround you like a blanket. Put any negative or unhappy thoughts on the shelf for the night.
  9. Stay away from violence in all forms as much as possible: TV, movies, radio, video games, newspapers, Facebook, blogs, etc. They leave a negative imprint on your body and this year, we want to focus on positive intentions as much as possible.
  10. Notice the abundance of nature all around you.  Depending on the climate and season, notice the glorious diversity of abundance that is available on our planet and know that your life can be that abundant if you allow yourself to flow with the positive energy that is available to you.  Notice the flowers blooming, the sun shining, the birds singing and the great variety of life that is all around you.  Notice the abundance of rain or wind or clouds or snow or sand, depending on where you are.  Nature isnít stressed about how or why or when it should be abundant; it just is ó naturally.  And, so can you be, if you allow yourself to experience it.

  • The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams. .. Oprah Winfrey
  • Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.  .. Henry David Thoreau 
  • Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul, the blueprints of your ultimate achievements. .. Napoleon Hill
  • Never set limits, go after your dreams, don't be afraid to push the boundaries.  And laugh a lot - it's good for you!  .. Paula Radcliffe
  • If you want to achieve your dreams, you must follow them, and the best way to follow them is not to think about wanting to be very rich, but to think about doing something that you really want to do.  .. Jackie Collins

Sent by a friend as I was writing this article:

I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you'll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you'll make something that didn't exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return.  And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind. .. Neil Gaiman
