It's a new moon in Sagittarius as we prepare for 2013. This is fantastic time to rise above our limiting beliefs and try new things.
I'm embarking upon an adventure. I've decided to let go of everything holding me back. All those little voices that say, "but you need money first," "people won't like you if you write that," and this beautiful little ditty: "sexy is shameful."
Have you been taking advantage of this wonderful period? There really is something special about the energy of the world right now. Call it an astrological shift, the end of an era, the dawning of a new age, the power of the winter solstice, whatever, but I have been hearing this from a great deal of people.
And it's what we believe that determines what we do. I believe this is the beginning of a new age. I think that things are in a bottleneck right now--the way things have "always been done" the last couple decades aren't working so well anymore. It is time to usher in a new perspective, new goals, and new inspiration of a brighter, more loving world.
Recently, an inspirational speaker said, "When you wake up in the morning, ask yourself how you can serve the new world that's emerging." I think it's a beautiful sentiment.

Everyone has the power to make a difference just by the way they feel. If you can enter a wonderful state of being, through meditation, doing what you love, saying no to the things that don't light you up---that affects everyone around you.
I'm realizing a little mind trick for accomplishing goals. Sometimes there is something I want to change, but the task seems so overwhelming that I feel helpless. If I take a moment to visualize the completion of the task, and imagine how that would make me feel, I often find I can keep that feeling around. That feeling is really what I want in my life, and once I have it, getting the task done is a given.
Easy Tools for Transformation:
Daily meditation- It's so amazing to start the day on a positive note rather than "arrg, boyfriend left dishes and crumbs to clean, arrgg" cycling. Also releasing stuff from the day is a wonderful ritual before sleep. Start with two minutes a day of tuning out and see how it makes you feel.
Healing with the Masters- This amazing site features recorded calls from inspirational healers. Currently many of the best calls from the year are being replayed for free. I love this for my morning commute. If you've never meditated before, it can give you some great tips.
Affirmations- I am at peace. I have everything I have always wanted. I write affirmations of those specific goals in the present. I review these everyday. It works.
Mind Movie-- I learned this technique from the Queen of Manifestation, Jen Mazer, through her Manifestation Masters Course. It's a collection of affirmations mixed in with related pictures. I watch that slide show as part of my morning meditation. It makes me feel AWESOME. In my movie, I have written stacks of books.
To Do Chart-- Rather than just a list, try making a chart of all the daily goals you have. These could be meditation, writing, journaling, a chore, a self-education class, treating yourself, exercise, etc. It's a really great way to start new routines. And it's also a great tool to appreciate your accomplishments and forgive anything you couldn't fit in.
Evernote To Do List--As I've posted, I'd like to marry Evernote. Keep your daily todo list updated on every device. Those piece of paper are going to get lost or clutter your life.
Are you excited for 2013? Do you feel like something is happening in the world? How are you going to achieve your dream state of being?
Because I believe the moon phases hold special magic, I write a journal post every New and Full Moon. Check out the last Full Moon, my heartfelt true story "How I Became a Witch and a Writer."A month ago was No Shame New Moon.
