Aloha and Happy New Year,

When I wrote in my journal this morning my first sentence was, “this is my year of conscious intent.” My next thought was ,”what exactly does that mean?” What would it look like to live this year based on conscious intent?

A few days ago a friend of mine sent me an article on numerology describing 2008 as a year of new beginnings. Of course each moment is an opportunity for new beginnings, but I realized that it was a gift to think of this year as the beginning of a new cycle. Last year was an emotionally rich and challenging experience for me.

So, I was interested in the idea of conscious intent. I describe intent as the power of creation. It is like the wind invisibly moving a sail boat across the water. When we set our intent it moves us and often does so in unexpected ways. The more I thought about making this a year of conscious intent the more excited I became about the prospect.

My underlying intent is always to deepen my connection with my spirit and to make my choices based on love. So I dedicate this year to the conscious intent of creating happiness, joy and ease in my life and sharing that gift with others.

When I think back to the beginning of my journey and reflect about where I am now, I am so incredibly grateful. I love my life. I have an incredibly loving relationship, a wonderful home and love what I do. When I started this process I was chronically depressed and had just lost my business and my home.

I recently reread parts of the book that started this journey for me, “You Can Heal Your Life” by Louise Hay. I first read it over twenty five years ago. I can remember feeling so afraid and desperate to change my beliefs. Today I can share hope and the benefit of having traveled this path. I know that no matter where a person is they can create a life filled with magic, miracles, happiness and joy.

When I begin working with people I ask them, “What do you want to create in your life?” I also tell them that if they stick with it, do their inner work and let go of their old beliefs they can create a life beyond their wildest dreams.

Day by day, moment by moment and choice by choice. I am looking forward to this year of conscious intent and invite you to join me in spending the year consciously creating what you want each and every day. Life is such a gift and every moment we are either deepening our connection with our spirit or our filter system, consciously or unconsciously.

What are you going to dedicate this year to? On January 1, 2009 what will you be able to reflect on? I know I will be able to smile and be filled with gratitude and joy.

May this year be filled with ease and joy and happiness. If you’d like some help transforming your life check out my new program: Unraveling the Mysteries – Mastering Life.
