Making Plans, Setting Goals and New Year Resolutions

Setting Goals

The New Year period is a wonderful time to reflect and relax.

Taking a well-earned break soothes the soul and gives the mind a chance to daydream about setting goals whilst the body is in a peaceful state.

By the time routines become re-established after the holiday season, it is powerful to be making plans that align with your sense of purpose (doing the things that matter most to your individual values).

Many people make New Year resolutions that lack sustenance because they make promises that aren’t in alignment with their values. When they get 3 days into the New Year and they haven’t modified their over-eating or stopped smoking, people get very disappointed and give up on their New Year resolutions altogether. With a little more planning these goals are very achievable.

One of my good friends has described her annual ritual that brings a sense of joy as she draws an imaginary ‘line in the sand’ to jump over into the New Year. She intentionally clears the slate in her mind, thankful for the fresh start that the New Year offers for making plans.

A few days of respite from the responsibilities of life can recharge your enthusiasm to make a difference, and provides the chance to re-energise your body, mind and soul, ready for setting goals for the year ahead.

It is satisfying to have a ritual to leave old problems behind, and the New Year is an ideal time to symbolise this. Sometimes a simple determination to view our things from a more positive perspective can give you a fresh outlook, especially if you are overwhelmed.

When we recharge our batteries, we can come back refreshed with a more relaxed and creative approach to life’s challenges. Setting goals can excite us to reach beyond our comfort zone to achieve in ways we never dreamt possible. Making plans propels us in a direction that nourishes our soul.

Over the holidays I had the pleasure to read Elizabeth Gilbert’s book ‘Big Magic’. I love her approach to dealing with fear … accept that it walks hand in hand with creativity, give it space in your life, but no matter what, when it comes to creative expression, don’t take fear’s advice, unless your ultimate survival is at stake.

Last year whizzed by, conjuring up plenty of drama and surprises to accompany world events that would have us pulling the covers over our heads. It’s hard to keep calm about the dangers of the world around us. Its frightening stuff … the shocking news is everywhere in the media. Bad news sells.

But here’s something all of us might pay more attention to: University of Ottawa professor Paul Robinson told The Huffington Post (Canada) in 2015 that “we actually live in the safest time period in human history”. Don’t take my word for it. Google it. You’ll be quietly reassured.

This year, let’s wipe the slate clean with some hope. Stop watching the news ad nauseam and get out your hobbies and creative dreams. Enchant your imagination. Commit to listening to your creativity with more interest. Spend time with family and friends in pursuit of love and laughter. Make some New Year Resolutions that will be a joy to embrace.

Focus on the things that really matter. Prioritise your health and well-being. Commit to activities that nurture your body, mind and soul. Surround yourself with good people and develop your positive mindset. Look for the opportunity to grow in every situation. Keep an eye out for every chance to connect with great people.

And above all sing your song!

If you’d like some assistance to clear the physical, mental and emotional clutter before you move forward in this fresh new year, phone me on 0411 542 889 to make an appointment for a BodyTalk session with me. The opportunity to communicate verbally and energetically can help clarify your purpose beyond the limitations of language.

Stress is one of the most debilitating afflictions of modern living that can undermine women’s health and happiness.

The years pass quickly and when we don’t feel like we can achieve our dreams we become challenged by our frustrations.

The Secret to Making and Keeping Goals

Write + Read + Action GoalsHow to make 2016 your best year yet

I love the energy of the New Year. It gives us all a fresh start, a chance to review our lives and look to the future with hope. If you’ve had a relaxing holiday, you’ll feel ready to make some plans for the year ahead. It’s a great time to commit to healthy lifestyle choices, such as losing weight, quitting smoking, drinking less alcohol, saving money for a holiday or even buying a pushbike. Whatever you want to do, you must take action towards making it happen!
However, there’s a problem. New Year’s Resolutions are notorious for being broken at the first challenge. Unless our goals are specific and we are clear about our purpose, we lose momentum and give up. By the end of the January, we find ourselves feeling even worse. Because our goals weren’t specific enough, we judge ourselves harshly for our lack of achievement. It’s not at all fun.
What gets in our way is fear. The self doubt, a lack of resources, thinking that there’s no time: there’s always a reason to quit if we listen to our fear. Fear is trying to protect us from danger because we are wired to pick up all the information around us. We are always on alert, and that can interfere with our ability to be confident in the face of challenges.
If, on the other hand, we make plans that align with our values, it is easier to face our fears with courage and achieve a great deal. Read on if you want to find out how to successfully achieve our goals by using a really simple technique.
First of all, when making a list of goals think about the people and things that you love to surround yourself with as well as the activities that you really enjoy. These can give you clues about making healthy and empowering choices for the year ahead. You might consider meditating every morning, taking a holiday to somewhere you haven’t been before, starting a new fitness routine or finding a new job. Whatever you choose to have on your list of goals must have significance for you. You need to really desire it. It has to be important enough to motivate you into action.
Once you’ve seriously committed to your goals, the next step is to focus on making them happen. This is the fun part. It is in itself a simple process, but having the commitment to work on it daily is the key that separates the achievers from the procrastinators. Everything depends on how much to want to achieve your goal. In other words, it’s up to you. If you take action you will reap the results.
So, here is the technique:
The secret to making goals and achieving them is to
(1) WRITE them down and then
(2) READ them out loud every day and most importantly
(3) take ACTION every day.
Our goals are achievable when we use this 3 step formula.
WRITE GOALS + READ GOALS + ACTION GOALS = RESULTS

BodyTalk is an energetic holistic therapy that allows the body and mind to release stored emotional “blockages” gently and effectively at a cellular level so that vitality is restored.

If you have goals that you know are being disempowered by your past, contact Robyn on 0411 542 889 to make a BodyTalk appointment.
When you see the results, you will be glad you started today.
Don’t give up on your dreams.

 

BodyTalk and the Connected Universe

Nassim Haramein Nassim Haramein has spent many years pondering a theory that presents all of the laws of the Universe as a unified science. His attempts to bridge the chasm between astrophysics and cosmology with quantum mechanics have seen him develop a published formula in order to prove his theory about the Connected Universe.
Nassim believes that there is order, not chaos in the universe. He asserts that the Universe is not randomly collapsing waveforms based on probability, but a set of laws that are governed by dynamic connection.
His engaging discussion that led us down the rabbit hole of scientific mathematics at the IBA Members Conference in Vancouver, was thought provoking and inspiring, starting with this concept: The Connected Universe
Reality = Space With Fluctuations
and that the material world is made up of 99.99999% space.
It’s a mind boggling picture of reality. Our earthly lifestyles see us more aware and focused on the “things” around us rather than the empty space between! We notice what we can see and feel with our senses, but we can’t possibly know what is outside our perception horizon.
Nassim is clearly passionate about his work, and is dedicated to sharing his knowledge. He believes that energetic charge comes from the vacuum of space, however, he stated that this is still unknown so far.
After a dazzling mathematical discourse about the scientific nature of the universe, he then mused about our remarkable state of grace, where the probability of humans existing at all was extremely slim.
Nassim HarameinNassim suggested that our next frontier in science relates to our learning to control gravity on a large scale as we make plans to leave Earth to harness resources, such as water, from the asteroid belt, or, closer to home, create shields to protect the Earth from sun flares or asteroids.
As if to add to the futuristic science fiction feel of the presentation, Professor Pollack, listening from the audience, replied that he already had a “Lifter” in his lab at the university. The BodyTalk audience became very intrigued!
We have stepped into a technological new age where science and the consciousness of healthcare meet!

Dr Wayne W Dyer (May 10, 1940 – August 29, 2015)

Dr Wayne W DyerThe passing of Dr Wayne W Dyer aged 75, has left a legacy of positive influence across the planet that will see him remembered as a man of great wisdom and inspiration.
He wrote many best-selling books, starting with “Your Erroneous Zones” in 1976. What he left behind is a library of great teachings that came about because of his personal challenges which he chose to share for the benefit of our personal development. Wayne was a man who connected easily with people because he was himself so lovingly real. He had decided that no matter what challenges life would bring him, he saw the spiritual lesson and was grateful. He was a deep soul who could laugh at the folly of life. He often spoke of his love for his family. A simple man at heart, he had grown so rich in his spirit. He devoted his life to helping others by sharing his wisdom. He loved people.
He made a great contribution to the lives he touched, and lived according to simple spiritual principles that included:
“How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.”
How true…
I was fortunate to see him speak and meet him at a Hay House “I Can Do It” event in Brisbane many years ago. His warmth and ability to release judgement in the face of great challenge was truly inspiring. His ability to forgive was enormous, as was his insight into the spiritual lessons that life brings, often presented as enormous difficulties. He was a wise sage.

The passing of Dr Wayne W Dyer is time to reflect with sadness at the loss of this great man’s presence. He is already very missed by his family and his readers and all those who came in contact with his generous character.
I am blessed to have encountered his presence, and I send great love to his family as they process his passing. He truly was an extraordinary man!
