Today is the first day of a New Year—and a new time in our lives. There is excitement in the air, for the gift we receive today is time—a new day, a new year, another chance to heal and grow. Time is the medium of evolution allowing the unfolding of life’s purpose. The days of this New Year, used consciously, will awaken our purpose and lead to our enlightenment.
Time used constructively heals the wounds that would crush our life’s expression.
Time used mindfully carries us like a mighty river to our depth.
Time used consciously transforms life experience into wisdom and illumination.
No wonder we’re excited at the prospects of this New Year and its gift of time.
It takes time to heal. We must proceed slowly, day by day, unraveling the damage that confounds the full expression of our identity. Our wounds run deep for they were inflicted practically from our first breath. The painstaking work of loving all the lost parts of ourselves back to life, vitality, and full expression must be done slowly, day by day, throughout this bright New Year.
Today we begin the journey back to our self and to truth. We take the hand of our frightened inner child who was shamed into believing it was of little value and hold this child in our care and protection. We comfort this terrified child, buried within us, who hid for safekeeping until this very moment. We open the prison gates with our love and breathe life into this forgotten existence.
Today we begin a sacred journey through a New Year. Slowly, through the days of this new time, we develop our dishonored child into the fulfilled adult that life intended.
This bright New Year with gratitude, humility and love, I begin a new time in my life.
