Excerpts from “Resolutions Can Manifest!”
by May McCarthy
The custom of setting New Year’s resolutions began with the Babylonians some 4000 years ago and it was celebrated in March. Later, the Romans adopted the tradition and moved the celebration to January, honoring the god Janus. They made resolutions with a moral flavor: mostly to be good to others.
As you develop your intentions for the New Year, commit to achieving them. Revisit your goals on a daily basis and measure your success throughout the year, not just in December. The Path to Wealth daily practice is a great tool to help you to manifest your resolutions. Incorporate the following practice into your routine each morning for up to 30 minutes:
1. Write down your completed goals with gratitude. List what you have now that you’re grateful for AND what you desire as already complete. e.g. “I’m so grateful that I experience harmonious and peaceful relationships with my family, friends, neighbors and all in my community. We treat each other with respect and live together in peace and harmony. I’m grateful to be a happy and helpful person and feel fully supported in all of my relationships.”
2. Read what you wrote out loud and take action. As you read your gratitude statements out loud, you are programming your brain for success. This practice stimulates your intuition and subconscious to show up throughout the day to help you notice possibilities to take steps that are in line with the goals that you desire. e.g. You may find that you have a strong thought about someone. When you turn that thought into action and call him/her, you may discover that you can provide some much-needed help which makes you feel good. And, they may learn from you that you need some assistance that they can provide and offer you help. As a result, you’ll feel fully supported. Have the courage to take action as directed by your intuition even when it doesn’t make rational sense. You may realize your goals sooner than expected with less work required by you.
3. Imagine experiencing your completed goal. Sit quietly for 5 minutes and imagine what it’s like to be in the completed goal that you desire. How do you feel? Where are you? What are you doing? Who are you with? Answer these questions with imagery in your mind’s eye. As you make the completed goals more real to you and vibrate at that level of success, you will begin to notice more intuitive and subconscious directions that lead you to manifest your desires. Choose to use imagery for a different goal each day to keep your daily practice to no more than 25 to 30 minutes.
Throughout each day, watch for intuitive messages, thoughts, signs and information provided through others that give you some directions on steps you can take to achieve your goals.
