Itâ€™s the end of another year.Â While most of us look ahead and set intentions for the year ahead, I think itâ€™s equally important to take stock of the year that is coming to a close.Â Did you accomplish what you wanted this year?Â Did you create the transformation you intended at the beginning of 2009?Â Did you even know what you wanted to create?
Most importantly â€¦ what did you create or tolerate in 2009 that you are ready to let go, so that you can make 2010 the year of creating what you truly want?
Itâ€™s tough to create anything new in our lives when our lives are already full of what weâ€™ve settled for.Â A lot of us want to hold on to what we have until we know for sure that what we want is definitely on its way.Â Unfortunately, life doesnâ€™t work that way.Â Before wonderful, new things can come into our lives, we have to do a little clearing and create a vacuum.Â Without a temporary vacuum, thereâ€™s no space to be filled.
Itâ€™s easy to forgo what we truly want in favor of what we can easily have right now.
Let me give you an analogy.Â Letâ€™s say you want a thousand dollars.Â You know you are absolutely worth that much.Â You believe in this value!Â But now hereâ€™s someone who shows up and offers you $650 right now.Â What do you do?
Itâ€™s tempting to just take the $650, isnâ€™t it?Â After all, it fell right into your lap!Â And surely thatâ€™s a pretty good chunk of money, right?Â Maybe not a thousand â€¦ but getting closer, for sure.
But hereâ€™s the problem.Â If we say â€œyesâ€ to the $650, weâ€™ve just declared our true self-perceived value to the Universe.Â We arenâ€™t all that insistent on our â€œtrueâ€ value â€“ in fact, weâ€™ve just invalidated our â€œtrueâ€ value altogether by accepting less!
When we settle for less than what we want â€“ dissatisfying relationships, careers, financial situations â€“ we are declaring to the Universe that â€œless thanâ€ is our actual value!Â At all times, WE are the only ones that decide on our worth.
What we have right now, in this very moment, is a perfect reflection of what we think we deserve.Â If we want to exchange what we have for something more or better, then we first have to label it as â€œnot good enough, sorry!â€ and take the Universe up on its eternal return policy, so that we can receive something more in alignment with what we want.
What â€œless thanâ€ situation might you be willing to let go of in order to create a reflection of your true value, your true heartâ€™s desires?
