This is the time of year that many of us make our annual New Years Resolutions. Unfortunately, we also set ourselves up for failure. I don’t really know why this happens, perhaps we make unrealistic goals or perhaps we don’t have a plan.

Because I have let my self down in the past with these resolutions or intentions, I stopped doing them, saying it’s “dumb”. But I have been thinking a lot about it this year for some reason, and have been feeling quite strongly about setting intentions and goals for myself personally and for my business.

I’ve decided to be really specific about my goals, and as realistic as possible. And, I am not only setting these goals, but I am going to create a plan for these goals. Where do I want to be in twelve months from now AND what steps do I need to take to get there. I will make mini milestones along the way and make plans how to reach each of those milestones.

I will also evaluate what are the potential obstacles and challenges I might come up with along the way and try to pre-resolve them. I believe by having this kind of plan, I and you can be successful with your resolutions this year.

I also just read something very interesting about our New Years resolutions this year. This years resolutions will be heard and more powerful then ever! As a matter of fact, for weeks now I’ve been having the feeling that 2010 is going to be the best year yet for my life, and I want that for you too!

The reason it will be so powerful this year is two-fold. This year there will be a Blue Moon on New Years Eve. A Blue Moon happens only once every 2 years or so and only once ever 40 years will it fall on New Years Eve. (By the way, that’s where the term “once in a blue moon” comes from).

Along with the Blue moon, we will also be experiencing a Lunar Eclipse Blue Moon. These powerful forces combined will make our intentions heard. So let’s set our intentions and move our energies to create a higher good on all levels of our lives.

Here is a great activity that I plan on doing tonight. It’s called the “I AM Template”, which is an energetic roadmap into our future.

The first thing you do is release! Release all the things that no longer serve you well. Release the things that push your buttons, release anger, fear, guilt and anything else that holds you back and drains you. You can also release expectations of others, it is their journey, not ours.

The I AM TEMPLATE consists of an eternal circle.

First, draw the large circle repeating the words I LIVE IN A PLACE OF PLENTY.

Second, on the inside of the circle place everything you plan on creating in the next year.

Put down all of your dreams, aspirations, wants, needs, as well what you want for the planet.

On the outside of the Circle write everything you are choosing to release. Release all that does not serve your highest good any longer. Be specific in those releases.

On New Years Eve bless the ‘I AM Template’ and then burn it, releasing its ashes like a sacred prayer up in smoke.

May 2010 be your best year yet!

In peace, love and health
