The First Week of the New Year
Are you still penciling out those New Years resolutions? Well… here’s a few tip to help you through the struggle. In order to embrace the new, we must release the old. A trapeze artist can not swing from one bar to another without letting go. An important part of moving forward in this New Year is to review the past year—to release it--and to learn from it.
To go where we wish to go and be whom we wish to be, we need to know where we are and who we are. An honest self-analysis is always helpful to gain clarity. Considering all that happened in 2005, it seems particularly fitting to devote some time to reflecting on the year past and where we find ourselves in the dawn of this new year ahead.
Reflect upon what you did, how you felt, what you liked, what you didn't and what you learned. Try to look at yourself and your experience with as much objectivity as you can-much like a biographer would.
Here are some suggestions to get you started in mulling over the past year-perhaps the last decade. Feel free to add your own.
1. What did I learn? (skills, knowledge, awareness, etc.)
2. What did I accomplish? A list of my wins and achievements.
3. What would I have done differently? Why?
4. What did I complete or release? What still feels incomplete to me?
5. What were the most significant events of the year past? List the top three.
6. What did I do right? What do I feel especially good about? What was my greatest contribution?
7. What were the fun things I did? What were the not-so-fun?
8. What were my biggest challenges/roadblocks/difficulties?
9. How am I different this year than last?
10. For what am I particularly grateful?
Another Suggestion: Consider listing all the things in your life of which you'd like to let go--anything you no longer want. Give thanks for what they've brought you in terms of learning and usefulness and then burn the list. It's a symbolic gesture to help you release the old and be open to the new. The next step is to list what you DO want-experiences, knowledge, material things, relationships, healings,
In doing this, you'll be using the principle of vacuum--releasing what you don't want and embracing what you do. Some friends of mine lit a bonfire and burned their lists as well as a few other articles that represented something they no longer desired in their lives. One of them burned an old (and too big) article of clothing to symbolize a less-than-impeccable wardrobe and garments that belong to a heavier person than they will be in the coming year.
I'm confident that anything you can do to make this year more dramatic in terms of your own personal and spiritual growth will be valuable.
Make this a great New Year.

Using Your Inner Guidance System
We know that when our body is not functioning smoothly and painlessly, something is wrong, and we take action to correct it. We go to a doctor; we take pills; we undergo physical therapy, massage or chiropractic. We know that if we ignore pain or discomfort for any period of time, it could lead to something more serious.
How To Tell Right From Wrong
Just as the natural physical state of your body is health and vitality, your natural emotional state is peace and happiness. Whenever you experience a deviation from peace and happiness, it’s an indication that something is amiss. Something is wrong with what you’re thinking, doing or saying. Your feeling of inner happiness is the best indicator you could ever have to tell you what you should be doing more of and what you should be doing less of.
Very often, you’ll suffer from what has been called “divine discontent.” You’ll feel fidgety and uneasy for a reason or reasons that are unclear to you. You’ll be dissatisfied with the status quo. Sometimes, you’ll be unable to sleep. Sometimes, you’ll be angry or irritable. Very often, you’ll get upset with things that have nothing to do with the real issue. You’ll have a deep inner sense that something isn’t as it should be, and you’ll often feel like a fish on a hook, wriggling and squirming emotionally to get free.
Listen to yourself. Trust your inner voice. Go with the flow of your own personality. Do the things that make you feel happy inside and you’ll probably never make another mistake.
First, listen to yourself and trust your own feelings. If there is a part of your life that causes you stress and happiness, resolve to deal with it.
Second, identify those areas of your life where you are dissatisfied or frustrated for any reason. What changes should you, could you make?
Third, remember that nature wants you to be happy, healthy, popular and prosperous. Any deviation from those conditions is a signal to you that action is necessary.
What are your fitness goals? To be strong, to feel great, to lose weight, to stay young? If you join with us and make a commitment to put a little time into the needs of your body, you'll get all these things. And you'll also get something more: an inner glow. The most surprising thing about exercise is how good it makes you feel. If you stick with it for as little as a month, amazing things are going to happen. You're going to feel more energy, you're going to notice improved strength, you may start shedding a few pounds, and you'll discover a renewed positive attitude; kind of a mental second wind.
And the great part is, it`s all pretty simple. You don't need to try to become one of those muscle-bound bruisers you see in some of the gyms, nor should you be intimidated by the zealots who can do a step class on hyperdrive for an hour straight. "The scientific evidence shows that even moderate physical activity can provide substantial health benefits," says Russel L. Pate, past president of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM).
Stretch. You need to do this to make your muscles, ligaments and tendons more flexible so you can move with greater fluidity and be less prone to aches and pains.
Lift. Pick something up. Put it down. There. That's what strength training is all about. Muscles grow in response to the demand for work. Push them a little harder than they're used to being pushed and they grow a little more. Muscles that become stronger don't necessarily show, but you sure can feel the difference.
Move. When you do any activity vigorously enough to raise your heart rate, you're actually exercising your heart, lungs and your entire circulatory system. Known as aerobic conditioning, this kind of exercise increases your capacity for any physical activity, whether dancing, sports or merely the ability to walk briskly without becoming winded.
Keeping yourself hydrated during your work out will make it even more effective. Don't forget to drink plenty of water! What I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon to 32 ounces of water with a sprinkle of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder . Aside from being less than 2 carbs, you will get the health benefits that the stevia provides along with the vitamin C and electrolytes that lemon have. You can substitute limes for lemons if you get bored. Click here to order stevia powder. Now, starting working out.
"To know how to choose a path with heart is to learn how to follow intuitive feeling. Logic can tell you superficially where a path might lead to, but it cannot judge whether your heart will be in it."
"When you have compassion and surrender to your own heart, you are surrendering to the hidden power in your heart, God. You are surrendering to love, because God is Love, the cohesive force of the universe that connects us all. Surrender is not just a religious concept; it's a power tool for listening to the voice of your spirit and following its directions. When you surrender your head to your heart, you allow your heart to give you a wider, higher intelligence perspective. Remember the phrase, ‘The real teacher is within you.’ Very simply, that teacher is to be found in the common sense of your own heart."
"Surrender is faith that the power of love can accomplish anything... even when you can not foresee the outcome."
