Day by day and year by year, we proceed on our journey of awakening into consciousness. Each day, and each year, I am awakening to greater consciousness. Consciousness is not about fixing ourselves or improving ourselves. The journey of consciousness is lifelong. But when you really think about it, what else is there to do? I am on a lifelong journey of conscious awakening. January 3 Honor yourself You are unique. You are a valid and special part of the universe. You are important. You are here to create in your own very special way, a way no one else can.
Know this, in the deepest core of your being. I am unique. I am contributing to the universe in my own special way, right now. January 4 What do you want? We all want certain things, although we may not always be conscious of what they are. If we can get in touch with what we want, we can create it.
Because simply by becoming aware of our true desires, oftentimes we can begin to manifest them in our lives. I am becoming conscious of my deepest needs and desires. January 5 Set goals Once you are conscious of what you want, you can begin to take the next step, which is setting goals. To receive what you desire, you must take some action toward it. This action is not complicated. Simply write what your goals are for the coming year and for the next five years.
Your goals are always evolving and changing. But you must recognize and acknowledge what they are now. Then you can begin to move forward. What are my goals for this year?
For the next five years? January 6 We get what we desire The universe is designed to give us everything we need and want. As I learn to trust in the universe, I am receiving everything that I desire.
As we become more and more conscious, we are more able to create what we truly desire. I am creating my own reality, every day. January 8 Our lives are our creation We need to acknowledge how incredible our lives already are and, therefore, how powerful we are. We have all created a great many unique, interesting, even amazing experiences in our lives so far. We have attracted a number of fascinating characters into the drama of our personal reality.
These people and experiences are all mirrors of our creativity. Although we are all capable of creating even better and more satisfying realities, what we have already manifested is strong proof of how powerful our beings really are.
My life is an expression of my own creativity. January 9 Life is simple Life is much simpler than most of us think it is. We struggle so hard trying to improve ourselves, trying to grow, trying to become conscious, trying to achieve in the world. We need to relax, open up, and allow ourselves to receive from the life force within us and all around us. I am open to receiving whatever comes my way today.
January 10 We each have a direct line to the truth We each have the wisdom of life within us, and we each have a direct line to that truth at every moment. If we can listen to and trust our intuition, it will guide us. It will show us, step by step, what we need to do and what we need to know, every moment of our lives, if we let it. My intuition is guiding me through life. January 11 Life is an exploration Life is an exploration.
We need to liberate ourselves to think of it that way. We tend to take everything we do too seriously and feel that every action must produce the desired results. We can explore our options and discover many different aspects of ourselves in the process.
This attitude creates more possibilities for us. I am willing to explore something new. January 12 Live with passion What do you do out of guilt or because you think you should?
Ask yourself instead what it is that you truly desire to do. Do what feels right, and that will bring you satisfaction. Live your life with passion, in a way that is meaningful and fun. How can we create a world of fulfillment and joy unless we begin to live so in each moment?
As I let go of "shoulds" and the feeling of guilt, I do what brings me joy. January 13 Spontaneity Spontaneity is the quality of living in the moment and truly following our own energies, moving fully and freely with the life force.
Our culture generally values structure, planning, and discipline over spontaneity. Spontaneity is equated with childhood. Even as children, many of us were forced to control our spontaneity.
Certainly, as adults we are expected to behave in a rational, contained manner, so most of us have lost our connection with our true spontaneous spirit. One of the most profound things you can do in your healing process is to reconnect with your natural spontaneity. Each day, I am learning to move more fully and freely with the life force. January 14 Loss of spontaneity contributes to addiction One way some people deal with the suppression of their natural spontaneous spirits is by using drugs.
Alcohol and certain other drugs temporarily paralyze the "censoring" part of the psyche that tends to repress anything that may not be socially acceptable.
This allows for a temporary outburst of spontaneous energy. Unfortunately, this outburst takes place in a distorted, unnatural, and destructive way and ultimately leads to further suppression. The healing process requires that we give up manipulating ourselves with artificial substances and get to know our own psyches.
We must find the support we need to learn to trust our natural, feeling selves and to allow them to express in healthy ways in our lives. I express myself spontaneously in natural, creative, healthy ways.
January 15 Spontaneity can feel like losing control Spontaneity can feel frightening because it means giving over our own preplanned ideas and trusting in the moment, letting the spirit flow through us.
It means taking a risk and letting go of control. When we are free to follow our own spontaneous feelings, we are open to the universe and we allow for more opportunities and more creativity in our lives. Start with allowing yourself to be more spontaneous in small ways, at times when you feel relatively safe. Spontaneity will grow naturally, as you learn to trust it.
I am trusting the universe and allowing it to work through me. January 16 Discipline can support fun Some people are very spontaneous. They respond to life in a very emotional way and are often oriented toward pursuing pleasure and fun. They are usually creative, artistic, and fascinating to be around. Sometimes they suffer from lack of success or recognition in the world because they fear and lack the quality of discipline and structure.
They need to learn that discipline can support fun, and it can support creativity. It can support enjoyment in life. I am learning to balance discipline and spontaneity.
January 17 The balance between spontaneity and discipline Spontaneity and discipline work together in your life. Discipline supports the process of learning. Then, as you master the technical aspects, you can be more spontaneous. Discipline can give us certain technical tools and a certain kind of structure that then supports the creative spirit. When you are learning to play music, you may need to play scales at first.
Then, as you master the scales, you become spontaneous in expressing your own feeling and improvising, allowing the spirit to flow through you. Through discipline and spontaneity, I express myself creatively. January 18 Create positive structure in your life Whether you need more spontaneity or more discipline, setting up a structure in your life can help support you in finding a balance of those qualities. Each of us needs to work a certain number of hours per day, play a certain amount of time each day, and have some time each day for relaxation.
We need time to accomplish our tasks and time for intimacy with loved ones. Most of us have some difficulty establishing the right balance. We need to create a daily and weekly schedule that allows time for all our basic needs to be met.
I am creating a balanced schedule for myself. Also, build into your structure open times and space for spontaneity. You are trying to give yourself room for creativity, not stifling it.
I appreciate and respect each member of my own inner "family. Daily Reflections for Living Consciously I am learning to acknowledge and respect my own fears. Daily Reflections for Living Consciously The love affair of the universe is expressing itself in my life. Daily Reflections for Living Consciously I am becoming aware of all the messages from the universe.
