Thursday, December 31, 2009 - Today's Words of Inspiration and Great Giveaways!

Burning Away 2009

If you have been with us all week this week you will remember making Two Lists as your part of your daily inspiration this week. The first list was your gratitude list where you counted every good thing that happened for you this year. That list of blessings I asked you to keep in a safe place. You will refer to this list each year at the end of the year. For those that are already keeping a gratitude journal, this list is already being taken care of you by you daily. Please keep your journal or list in a safe place. I pray that each year your list (or your journals) get longer, with more good moments, more blessings.

You were asked to make a second list yesterday, your 'negatives', a list of all bad things that occured this year. These things obviously impacted you greatly and stayed ruminating in your mind if they made the list. It is that list I want you to pull out today.

You can do this at any point in the day before midnight that you want, but if you are going out tonight, you may want to do this before you leave.

Your list of negatives is to be burned. Yes I do mean literally! You will burn away 2009, by burning that list of negatives. That list is pain. That pain must be released so you can go into your new year a blank slate.

Please do this carefully and safely! Do this over the sink or over a clear bowl of water. Take the list, fold it. Now light the bottom of the paper with a lighter or a match, say out loud 'I burn away all the pain and negativity of 2009, I release all pains, fears, anger, doubt and misfortune. As this paper burns so do my fears, so does the worst of 2009. I release this old year with forgiveness and thanks for it's lessons' Make sure it burns completely. Particularly what you have written.

This allows you to now burn incense and light candles and welcome the new year as a blank slate. Let this new year become a canvas that you choose how to fill. But the best way to welcome the new is by releasing the old. Do this with a grateful heart, an enthusiastic and loving heart and watch your pains, fears and stress of the old year literally burn away. Hold on to nothing from your negatives list!

What are your traditions today? How do you welcome the New Year? I'd love to hear how you plan to spend this evening.

Please be safe everyone! Make sure you have a designated driver in your group who does not drink! Do not get behind the wheel if you are under the influence.

Ascending Butterfly wishes you all a safe New Year's Eve, and a blessings, prosperity, health and happiness filled 2010!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - We have named January 2010 the begining of our 'New Year/New You!' and we will be celebrating ways to make this New Year the best one possible. We will have new giveaways to celebrate this feature and we will also see the return of Ascending Butterfly's Monthly Club which took a brief hiatus in December!

Use 'Today's Words of Inspiration' as a breathing meditation to still your mind, quiet your thoughts and bring in positive energy. As you inhale bring in only positive energy by saying in your mind, I breathe in positive energy (or you can say creative energy if that is what you wish to create more of) and as you exhale, Affirm out loud today 'I forgive all slights, injustices, places, people and events that have caused me harm be it physically or emotionally. I am thankful for the lessons learned in 2009 and release all negativity so I may begin 2010 on stronger ground'

Spend some time each day enjoying focused breathing AND soul guided meditative visualization, in doing so, you can bring about amazing, profound and powerful changes in your life.

Visualize yourself manifesting something unique, guided by universal forces that emerge spontaneously from within your soul. Do this at least twice today and see how by taking a moment away from the hectic pace and breathing in positive energy and affirming what you wish to create, your thinking will become different.

Remember, attitude really does determine altitude.
