The magic begins inside of you

Spacious presence; condensed intent. Result: poof, presto, abracadabra—it is.

The end of a calendar year often leaves us in a pensive mood. We’re busy reviewing the past year and thinking about how we want the coming twelve months to be. We may have some regrets about the past. We likely have good intentions for the New Year. We even may have a plan for how to turn our intentions into concrete reality. It is likely, plan or not, that our ideas about achieving those changes involve a lot of hard work on our part.

We tend to equate progress with effort. In doing so, we overlook our greatest ally—all the rest of creation. We forget that we are an inseparable part of a divine interconnected whole: the sharing. Through this interconnection, the resources of the entire universe are at our disposal. We need only acknowledge our inner divinity and our role as co-creators of existence, to tap into this bounty of possibility.

When we expand our viewpoint to see life as a cooperative, group experience rather than something that happens to us, our ability to shape our lives expands. We cease to be victims of circumstance and instead are divinely inspired architects of reality. We take responsibility for the results of our choices, both conscious and unconscious. If we don’t like the results, we know we have the freedom of will to choose something else instead.

Recognizing that we have the inborn power to craft our existence consciously gives strength to our visions. Ensuring our beliefs, thoughts, actions, and words are in alignment with our goals gives a laser-beam focus to our intentions. We are simultaneously expanded in our conscious connection and condensed in our attention to what we create—this is the point of power. This is how the seemingly magical occurs.

Let’s spend a few minutes in conscious connection with our inner divinity—our sharing within—to learn how this can work for us. We will start by paying attention to our breath. We will let it become slow and even, as we also picture a ball of golden light in the center of our chest. With each breath we take in, the light grows dense and bright. With each exhalation, the light pulses out throughout and around us. We will continue until we feel a sense of sureness, ease, and peace, signaling conscious connection with our sharing within.

We will note how the golden light fills us and our surroundings. As we continue to breathe gently, we will picture the light spreading out from our heart in waves. It will expand gradually to touch our neighborhood, our city or township, our state, our nation, our planet, our solar system, our galaxy, and finally the entire universe. There is nothing that isn’t touched by our golden light of connection. Everything we see and touch, everything we can imagine, everything we don’t even know exists—all is one in divine interconnection with us. Feel how beautiful and expansive it is to be an integral part of a loving and benevolent creation: the sharing. All of existence is related to you and available to you to shape your visions.

Now think of the most important goal you would like to achieve in the next year. Perhaps you would like to improve your health. Perhaps you would like to change jobs. Perhaps you would like to start a family. Perhaps you would like to begin a major creative project. Whatever it is, picture the end result firmly in your mind. Breathe golden light of connection into your image and feel it begin to quicken.

Ask your sharing within for insight on how to ensure all parts of you are aligned with your goal. Are your underlying beliefs about yourself and your life supportive of your goal? Do you believe you are worthy? Do you believe you are capable? Do you believe you will get needed help and support from others? Do you believe good things happen to you? Listen carefully to the input from your sharing within and note any belief that does not serve you. Breathe golden light into the undesired belief and watch it transform into a new one which will support your dreams. State the new belief to yourself, and once again breathe golden light into it to set it more firmly in your consciousness.

Next request that your sharing within help you create thought patterns to reinforce your new belief. Ask for an affirmation you can use to guide your thoughts to be reflective of your goal. Perhaps you will affirm that you are a perfect creation, worthy of joy and fulfillment. Perhaps you will affirm that you have the inner strength and abilities needed to achieve any goal you desire. Perhaps you will affirm that the universe loves and supports you, always. Perhaps you will affirm that everything that happens is for your ultimate benefit. Whatever you hear, trust that it is perfect and helpful for you. State your affirmation to yourself and breathe golden light into it create a new thought pattern. Remember to strengthen this new pattern by repeating your affirmation to yourself often each day.

Finally, make a commitment to yourself to take a minute or two each day to review with your sharing within. Make conscious connection with your inner divinity and recall the past day’s events. If some of your actions and words were not in line with your goal, picture yourself saying and doing things that are more aligned with your dream. Surround that new image in the golden heart light of connection and know that you can and will find it easier to keep all parts of you focused on creating what you want. The entire sharing is rooting for you!
