What is your word of the year?

The beginning of the year was really busy and successful in all areas. As every beginning of the year we are tempted to do New Year’s resolutions. We read about the resolutions everywhere. And every time I’ve thought of making a resolution I didn’t feel really inspired. I devoted quite some time thinking, why this is so. The way I did them in the past meant something finite, usually in form of huge, non-realistic goals. If I didn’t achieve them, I felt bad. And I don’t like feeling bad at all. Feeling bad can not manifest good things. You know that already. 🙂

Then I stumbled across the Cristine Kane blog, which suggests to find your word of the year. I sat down, closed my eyes and wait for few minutes. The word which came, was SURRENDER. And not in the sense to give up, but to SURRENDER TO LIFE, LET GO…..With that word in my mind I looked at each an every of my so called issues and see how with surrender I can let go of particular attachement, surrender to the current of life, unstuck my self, where I was stuck. I used my word of the year everytime I felt worrried, didn’t know what to do, when thinking too much about certain things, when afraid, what the next moment will bring…

After using my word of the year for a while the real New Year’s resolution appeared: LIVE TO YOUR FULL POTENTIAL. That striked me like somebody would give me an acceleration kick in the butt. 😀 What this would be like? Living to my full potential?

And you know what? The combination of SURRENDER and LIVE TO YOUR FULL POTENTIAL brought new painting, total clarity and concept for my business web page, taking a leadership role in a small group…..These are potentials which are lying in me, why not to use them, have fun creating new things and making a difference with them in the world?

And most of all, surrender meant letting go of the past, letting go of the future, living for the moment, expect every moment will bring something exciting, something I love. I trust in that and know it will be so. I am falling in love with my life, with me….. and it feels so damn GOOD!

What is your word of the year? Give it a try. It’s easy: sit down, close your eyes and wait. It will come. Let the word guide you through the year. What my word already did for me in this year, is huge! And looking forward to more!

For all who would like to explore more about the word of the year, the link to Christine Kane’s pdf worksheet is here.

I would really love to hear what is your word of the year. Please share your experience.

With love,

Swearing is not nice but helps things let go

Yesterday I bumped with my back in the attick door. It was hurting like a hell and I admit at such times I am swearing like the one eyed pirate sailing the oceans (I saw that in the movies, don’t know if it is true :)). Although some might say, that talking like this is not appropriate for a nice lady as I am – I don’t care – swearing helps me let things go. In this case I was swering for a minute or even more, massaging my back and leaning on the door. Hey, it helped me that pain was bearable!

Also in  the world of deliberate creation, you have to let things go. I don’t like words like: have, must, should, because they imply kind of pressure and feeling of obligation. But as far I studied The Law Of Attraction, letting go is a must thing. 🙂

Being attached to the outcome, whatever that is: getting a raise,  a  job, new client, parking space, new friends, selling a house etc. shows to the Universe, that behind your “order” there is a fear of lack, fear that you’ll not get what you want. And The Universe matches that need behind not what you think you “think”. Attachment looks like you are thinking about that thing all the time and there is also a feeling of neediness present.

Just remember, when the things happen – when you release the attachment, when you forget (but not give up) about your cosmic order. Look back at your life and recall your manifestations. Getting money when you completely forgot about it, meeting a new love, when you just had fun in life without “seeking” for the one, getting parking lot – phew, exactly where you intented to find it and so on.

Let go, let go. Sometimes it helps if you simply f*** it!

If you have your own recipes for letting things go, please share them: I would love to have more tools in my manifesting tool box.

p.s. Ah, the same goes for complaining – if it helps to let things go, just do it. (although I would be suspicious about your belief, when it is a constant complaint, but more on this topic next time).
