How do we feel about this last year? When we evaluate it, what criteria do we use?
I know those have changed for me through the years, but this year I’ve decided I will be unrealistic. Does everything go the way I think it should? Obviously, not. But does it have to for me to experience positive emotions? No, it doesn’t, and this has been in many ways an amazing year, a wonderful year. Why? Because I have never written this much in my life, never experienced a steady progress, a consistent work ethic in writing, like this. I love it.
Are there other things I would like? Absolutely, but anything that interacts with others creating their own lives is something I cannot control, so why evaluate those things? It’s not like I can’t make adjustments for myself if I need to. It’s not like life is urgent for me anymore. I don’t want it to be, nor do I need it to be for my happiness.
In truth, we are all creating all the time, and that’s all I’m concerned about right now: creating scenarios that will allow me to feel the way I want to feel. I want to discover, which means I want adventure, exploration, study, work, and communicating. When I create, I’m trying to do so consciously, purposefully, and joyfully.
Do you know that we are all creating every day, summoning life energies based on the vibes we emit? If you think you don’t emit vibrational energies that communicate to the Universe, you probably have never had a dog. It’s damn hard to hide your very intentions from a dog, at least my dogs. But this is not my point here.
My point is that we do create our circumstances. We create ourselves. Because we emit energy, we draw energies, too. We have one of two mechanisms, for lack of a better word right now, that we use: Ego or Heart.
Ego is our default system. If we look at life and desired change and it didn’t come, we probably aren’t very self-aware. It also means we have been creating with Ego. Ego keeps the status quo, maintains conformity as much as possible. If we engage in self-destructive behavior, Ego kicks in to isolate us. If we are smart but unenlightened spiritually, Ego will create to help us live large, being admirable to many but relatively empty and unfulfilled in our own soul.
If those things, and a vast middle ground in between, characterize us, we probably haven’t really awakened to core Self, Heart, that wonderful, full dollop of eternal Spirit. When we become aware we have this, we can face ourselves in a mirror and speak directly to Heart. We listen and learn to hear that voice. And we find we can create consciously. We discover that we can feel the way we want to feel — characterized by our choice of abundance, significance, love, purpose, everything and anything — and that we can envision and create those things.
I have learned, ever so slowly, that it’s far easier and more effective and efficient to manipulate emotions over form. I said last night that if we insist on manipulating form first, that’s Ego seeking to create. Heart is our direct tie to the riches and fulness of the Universe to create those situations in which we can be emotionally prosperous. Life is stacked in our favor, and I love that feeling.
Therefore, this year I will create through emotions and evaluate based on how I feel. If it feels good based on fellowship with my Heart, I will do it. If not, I won’t. If others don’t like that or think that’s wise, er, well, not my concern.
So, tonight and early tomorrow morning, I will take stock. How do I feel about what I’ve done, where I am, and how do I want to feel this coming year? Yes, I will attach form to it in the sense that I need a plan to do something, but as I summon life energies through my emotions, those forms may and probably will change.
I will live in each moment and guide my mind and soul through my personal Heart-truth. I will create, and do so powerfully. I know that I have the ability to summon form through my emotional intent. Faith can move mountains, make me look different, cause physical systems to shift, and much more. If anyone thinks that is some kind of forbidden magic, remember who said that we would do greater miracles than him!
And my wish for you is that you will do the same: create your life the way you want through discovery of Heart and living that core Self.
Blessings and Happy New Year, my friends!
