New Year Giveaway to Inspire You!

Happy New Year!

                It is amazing how fast I let go of 2012 and now all my focus is on what I want to create for 2013. In reviewing my vision board from last year, there was only one thing that I didn’t make much progress in, but everything else I hit spot on!  Woo Hoo!

                Last year I facilitated a What If? workshop (for more information on this year’s What If? Workshop go to ( where we cleared away beliefs that no longer served us; listened to our hearts to understand what our soul desires; and then we created vision boards.  Within weeks everyone had already manifested something on their board!  You can bet that we will all be back again to create our year of 2013.

                I had taken some time off from my teaching and healing work due to burn out and my own health challenge (all better now).  The time has now come to go back to my life purpose of helping people embrace and live their true self through my teachings and writings.

                The beginning of a New Year can be confusing and scary for some.  “What will the New Year hold for me?” “It has to be better than last year, right?”   If you didn’t already know, YOU have control over your life.  You and only you have the power to create the year (world) you want for yourself.  And the thing you should be aware of is that if you don’t consciously create your world, you will create something that you don’t want because you are not paying attention to what you are saying, thinking and doing.  And that my friend is when life goes out of control and we can’t seem to achieve our goals.

                So how do you enter the New Year full of excitement and knowing that you will achieve your goals because that is the way you planned it?  First get clear on what you want (no matter how crazy it may seem), next write it down and review it often.  That is where a vision board comes in handy.  It is a wonderful visual reminder of what we want and keeps us focused.  Also, if you can take a moment every so often and really see yourself reaching your goals that can be very powerful.  And when faced with a decision always ask yourself, “Will this bring me closer to my goals”?  Before you know it you will be where you wanted to go!

                Do you still need a little inspiration to figure out what you want for 2013 and how to get started?  No fear I can help with that.  Three things that ALWAYS inspire me are books/reading, writing (helps me get unstuck if I write randomly) and creating (anything).   
With that said, I am offering my blog readers a chance to win some tools to help create their best 2013 they possibly can
