It is the start of a new year, a time for fulfilling resolutions, which so often are lofty goals that feel almost unattainable.
I prefer to set intentions. With them, I harness my energy to do what I set out to, to build my path as I go.
I did set intentions for this new year, large and, sometimes, daunting, in all that they require of me.
I remind myself now, a few days into the fresh year, that each day is a new opportunity to fortify those intentions, to set new ones. I borrow from Reiki’s principles, and tell myself, “Just for today,” so that if, no, when, I fail to fulfill my intentions for myself, I remember that I can always start again, that it’s not too late, I don’t have to put anything off for many months until another new year’s eve arises.
On this day, my intention is to remain in awareness of my essence, to be faithful to my Truest Self, and allow its energy to flow freely, unhindered by fear and hesitation, to fulfill the potential this day holds, for me, for those I love, for all.
