As you prepare for the New Year, I challenge you to move away from what you want to have or do, and focus on what you seek to experience. These are things that are more spiritual in nature. You might not be able to hold them in your hand, or hang them on your wall, but they can be had no matter what the year brings. Instead of writing specific financial goals, you could write, "This year I choose to experience financial peace and abundance."
I know we like to think that people who love us don’t hurt us. The reality is, people can really love you and hurt you. When love walks in the room, many of us become afraid....love is so amazing that we don't want it to ever leave. This can ignite fear, and then we start acting crazy. Yes, love makes our stuff come up.
As autumn sets in, consider the areas of your life that need to be released, consider what no longer serves you, gets in your way, and needs to wither and die. It can be physical: a job, relationship, debt, or clothes that no longer fit. You can release emotional baggage: anger, guilt, sadness, and unforgiveness. Or maybe you are carrying mental weight: negative thoughts, racing thoughts, or unawareness. Commit to letting something go. Be like the trees...Release!
Traveling expands my state of consciousness. It stretches, grows, challenges, and moves me. Traveling has been one of the great healers of my life. Recently, I embarked on a journey to India and Nepal with my travel companion, and friend, Ashli. I had many wonderful experiences while traveling.

So what is the ego? The ego is difficult to define because the ego is an illusion. Still, I will try to capture it. Our ego is the thing that makes us feel embarrassed when we trip on the carpet when we are in a room alone, or when someone is looking. Our ego would like to believe that we should not trip, fall, or get it completely wrong. Ego could be described as a false self that we develop based on a collection of beliefs and experiences that allow us to answer life’s continuous question, “Who am I?” Your response to the “I am” question is what drives the actions you take in attempt to experience yourself as you think, or say, you are. But when ego rules we struggle to answer the “I am” honestly…
Psalm 51:10 reads, "Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me." Emotional renewal is important. During this Spring season, clean your heart. Who do you need to forgive? What are you holding on to that is slowing you down? Are you still feeling guilty? Have you not released the shame of the past? Are you still holding on to a relationship that is over? This is a wonderful time to decide to feel better. Set your intentions toward positive emotions. Choose JOY!
