Recently, an active community member sent me a letter I had written in 2008! She said that it has touched her so profoundly that she has never forgotten it. She also asked that I republish it so folks that had not been part of our community could still receive it. So, in honor of Cynthia Garner and YOU...here it is!
This is a letter to your soul for the New Year here on planet earth, so if you don't mind, could you read it aloud so it can hear it in your own voice?
The world is changing rapidly and we, as the ushers of a new and evolving consciousness, are being prepared in some mighty and mysterious ways! A time of reflection, gratitude and re-creation, we face an incredible opportunity to remember our very reasons for existence and come back into alignment with higher truth.
As we enter into the first few days of 2012, we must remain steady in what we know to be true and sacred. Evolution is usually met with resistance and the birthing process isn't always comfortable. In spite of stark projections, I believe that we--and the world--are changing in the very ways we have prayed for. We are finding our voices, embracing our dreams, and cleaning up that which is not a match for the vibration we each wish to project into the creation of our lives.
Many of us have faced the challenges of loss and transition over the last year. Life has turned us upside down and sideways, yet always, always we land on our feet once again. In the illusion of aloneness, we find sanctuary in prayer, or music, or nature and realize both the humor and necessity of our human dance into divine forgetting. The contrasts shed light on all that we have to be grateful for. As Anita's husband always reminds her, "When we face the light, the shadows fall behind us." Yet, we can only face the light of today when we are willing to look forward and release anything that fetters us to the past.
What will we remember when we look back upon 2011? How will we acknowledge our own growth and abundance? Will we be able to appreciate the massive evidence of positive change? Will we appreciate our own willingness to heal our relationships and pasts and finally understand that regret just prevents us from being witness to the perfection of the present?
To know, without a doubt, that you are loved, supported and adored may be the greatest wish ever dreamed. The truth is that this is a given. You are. We are. And when you forget, this community will be here to remind you.
Many of us have lost "sight" of a vision for our lives that is absent of cultural conditioning and a list of "shoulds" that seem to define happiness, success and fulfillment. So much of what we think we want has been influenced by the various cultures and subcultures that we identify with or want to belong to. Your current pictures of what you believe is possible, or what you believe you are worthy or capable of receiving into your life may unconsciously limit you from opening to an expanded picture of what the New Year wants to bring you.
This is why I am sharing this letter with you today. I wish to share so much with you. I wish to share just a sense of what we are capable of when we let go of what we have been taught by the world. Love, healing, peace - it is all right at our fingertips. . . Ultimately it is simply about reconnecting with an inherent essence that exists within you and supports you in both the physical and non-physical realms.
You, as both creator and "the created," possess an innate power to manifest that which you desire and which is in alignment with your soul path. Most importantly, you are being called to bring yourself into wholeness and gratitude and heal that which prevents you from seeing yourself as a creative force in your life.
At the same time, as I am reminded of often, we must remember that although we are creators, we are not the Source of all of our good. Yes, we carry the energy and therefore are a physical manifestation of Source/God in the physical. But, the moment we attach to the idea that all of our good or abundance comes from ourselves or others; we dismiss the greater truth that abundance comes from a Source of infinite supply.
ASK your SOURCE TO HELP YOU KNOW and ALIGN with THE DESIRES OF YOUR SOUL and surrender to Divine Timing and an Order that is incomprehensible to most of whom walk with human eyes and hungering hearts.
Lack of clarity, unworthiness, fear, and lack consciousness blocks the communication of our soul's longing to be received clearly by our creative source. Replayed stories of woundings and victimization remove the power we possess to facilitate change in our lives. Plus, the pattern of recalling a past experience (and all of the equations we create) is creative in and of itself! Maybe the saying should go, as it is spoken, so it becomes.
Ancient wisdom shows us the power of prayer, intention, energy and sound to transform, heal and transcend. Pray believing and the whole world changes. Surrender attachment and open to even greater possibilities - potentials you can't even begin to imagine. Forgive the past and immediately open the flow to a wellspring of beauty that awaits your receiving. Release judgment and feel the healing power of compassion enter into your life.
Love what you once feared or hated and understand the blessing of being loved unconditionally in your own life. Give what you most desire. Share your talents and passions. Stop avoiding coming into contact with the immensity of your greatness because we need it - all of us.
Release and or heal all that fosters a constrictive energy (such as judgment, regret, doubt, etc.) and create an immediate and expansive opening to new realizations, creations and inspirations. You are more ready and worthy than you have been able to realize – or admit. The time is now and you are the one.

We'll be integrating principles of expansion by inviting you to release anything tethered to resentments or unforgiveness and help you prepare "A WELCOMING PLACE" for new miracles and manifestations by bathing in the energy of gratitude during our first group session.
You may be entering into this process with a sense of what you desire to call forth into your life over the next year or so. You may be at a place of complete surrender, opening to a wisdom and guidance that is beyond the limitations of your human mind. Whatever place and space you find yourself in, know that this process will be both fun and clarifying.
I'll be in touch and wish you an incredible New Year!
