Many of you are at crossroads in your life - big changes are eminent. It could be with your job or career, an important relationship, where you live, your financial status, or even your health. You are being forced into making choices about things you perhaps didn’t expect, and you may be required to let go of one or more of these things or the way you viewed them. It may not feel good right now and you may be resisting big time. Make it go away is all you want!

We’ve all gone through circumstances and situations that we resist because they aren’t what we planned. You might even get angry or frustrated with these disruptions. After all, the disruptive changes are messing up your life. Not fair is it, yet here they are, showing up for you to deal with on your path. What I’ve learned on my life journey is the more I resist the worse off I am – lots of stress, worry and anger, but if I simply flow with whatever comes my way, it always works out good, often better than what I could have ever imagined.

My belief is that most of us are at a threshold which is allowing us to embark on a new path. The entire world is being shaken and the dice is tossed showing a new set of numbers. What has gone before hasn’t been working so it only makes sense to start again. Many of you are in the process of doing that right now, perhaps due to circumstances or simply because you have tired of the same old, same old that isn’t bringing you what you want. Either way, you have to alter your course and move in a different direction.

Don’t fight it, instead, embrace it! It’s coming to you for a very important reason and if you embrace it and flow with it, you will come out on top. The key factor in life is always how you respond to situations and circumstances – whether you are in peace or turmoil. Do you have the capability of making lemonade out of lemons by grabbing onto the opportunity rather than shrinking in anger about what has shown up on your path? You definitely have the ability of seeing it whichever way you want, and ultimately it will be your choice that brings you either your desired outcome or a totally unwanted result and the lessons that will come with it. Remember this, anything that originates from anger (which is fear) – resentment, frustration, bitterness, rage, blame – keeps you small, and smallness will never allow you to overcome and succeed!

This is a blessed time in our lives. We have the opportunity right now to change first ourselves, our community, our country and ultimately our world, just by making wiser choices in our personal life. If you think differently by raising your thoughts to a higher level in a positive place, you affect a change in every one who crosses your path. If you’re having a ‘bad’ day and feeling glum and frustrated, and someone approaches you with the same negativity, you both wallow around in that negative, blame-ridden dialogue that keeps you in the same place mentally and emotionally – the victim. But if someone approaches you wearing a big smile and obviously in a place of joy, and they say something nice to you, maybe a compliment or a few words of encouragement, you immediately feel better and your vibration rises out of the hopeless despair into one of at least some hope and brightness.

We’re beginning a new year that offers a lot of hope with multiple opportunities, but you have to be open to see and accept them. If your focus is negative as you continue to whine about what life has dealt you, you may miss the opportunities completely. I’m inviting you to let go of perceptions of what is to be and simply allow the universe to unfold wonderful new opportunities for you. You can make your resolutions as you begin this year, or at anytime, but they often turn out to be difficult to keep. However, if you look for and open to the new adventures possible this year, you can make serious changes in your life that can bring you exactly what you want. And remember this very important fact: You can know all the right words and speak them continuously, but if your heart doesn’t believe them you’re butting your head against a brick wall that will in the end disappoint and hurt you. The only way to bring into your life the desires of your heart is to believe it in your heart and live by that knowing.

We are actually living in exciting times as what we have known before is shifting right below our feet. We now have the chance of a lifetime to create something entirely different if we simply flow with the current. I have personally been experiencing many changes this past year, and at first I resisted them entirely, thinking I knew what was best for me. But I remembered what I had learned on my journey, that of flowing with whatever shows up and accepting it as perfect for me at that time. Amazingly, my vision cleared and I soon saw I was merely expanding into something better and of a higher nature. Once I saw clearly and accepted everything with an attitude of ‘All is well,’ miracles began unfolding and opportunities showed up. Furthermore, it felt more like a graduation and a step into a new beginning; I felt freedom.

I’m challenging you to look for the opportunities amongst your challenges and changes, and step right into a new beginning. You’ll be glad you did. And the freedom is exhilarating!
