Happy New Year Beautiful Souls,
A year in review as we enter 2022.
Reflect, learn, manifest, love yourself and create a plan of action and while you’re at it, sprinkle in some magic.
I invite you to look back to observe and allow yourself to feel all that you’ve accomplished this past year. The way you showed up, was exactly who you needed to be and I want you to realize that it was necessary for your growth. I would like for you to take a moment and allow yourself to feel gratitude for all that you’ve achieved for yourself and for the important people in your life. Let’s face it, when you make personal improvements, when you set meaningful goals, and when you accomplish what you’ve set forth to do, not only do you benefit, but the people that surround you benefit as well. This includes the folks in your workplace, in your immediate circle of family and friends, and it includes anyone within your energy field. Whether your intention was to have a direct impact on them or not, it has happened. There is no doubt in my mind and through my experiences that everything we do, has a direct effect on our energy field, therefore, it has a direct effect on anyone or anything that surrounds us.
Your mind and your spirit have the power to manifest anything you dream or desire. You own this power. It lives inside of you and all you have to do is believe in it and surrender to it.
My mantra, my business model, and my business name is DDBR. The letters stand for the following; dream it, design it, believe it and receive it. This life mantra has worked for me since I adopted it and will continue to work for me in my future. Why? It is tried and true. I know that everything I do begins with a thought or a dream. As soon as I have a thought, or a vision, or a passion for something I want to manifest, I begin to design it. I put all my thoughts and energy into it and learn all I can to produce a positive outcome. I surround myself with like-minded individuals that possess wisdom, passion and determination. I ask for help when I need it. I allow my thoughts to take me to the feeling of completion. I let myself daydream about it often and get lost in the emotions of gratitude about it. I allow myself to believe it. I allow myself to feel exactly how it will feel once I’ve achieved it. I learn all that I can and I follow what feels right. I then have to trust that everything will fall into place as it should. I cannot control how other people make decisions or react to their environment, all I can control are my decisions and my reactions. I’ve dreamt it, I designed it, and I believed it and now I surrender to the unknown and I wait. The waiting tests my patience. Sometimes it is easy to remain calm, but other times, I am as antsy as a child on Christmas morning. The timing is always a surprise. And it is the surprise that reminds me that because I had an intention and I put all of my energy in a positive light, the universe worked with me to deliver it in divine timing. The dream, the manifestation appears before me. And I collapse in gratitude every time it happens.
I learned a great deal in 2021. I learned things that I never thought I would need to know and it was a continual and grueling challenge. There were many times I wanted to quit, to throw my hands in the air because it was too hard. There were many times I felt overwhelmed because I didn’t understand, and because it was taking too damn long. When I’m excited about something, I want it to be completed yesterday. The closer I got to completing it, the more challenges I encountered and the more difficult it became to stay with it.
The start of a dream is exciting. To see it come to fruition is even more exciting. But the work, oh my goodness, the work to get it there, just plain sucks. But, it is the work, and only the work that delivers the overwhelming sense of gratification when it is complete. And if I am honest, a project, a dream, or a goal is never really complete. There is always more to it. There is always more to learn. It never feels quite complete because as we learn and grow, something magical happens. We learn more about ourselves and develop a craving to satisfy a part of us that felt proud of the work that led to our accomplishments.
Dreaming of writing, designing an outline with the intent to help others, believing that I had everything I needed to accomplish writing a book, and then waiting for the universe to orchestrate everything so that I could receive it when the time was right, was the culmination of every single reason I dreamt of writing in the first place.
Today is a full-circle day for me. I am drenched in gratitude. I am presently in one of my favorite places emotionally. My heart knows where I’ve been and what I’ve learned and it knows that this moment is real. While at the same exact moment, my mind won’t let me recognize the gravity of it all; it is far too surreal and too slippery to grasp.
I am excited to share my work with all of you and I hope that you can adopt a practice after reading, “My Soul Contract,” that helps you to trust in your dreams and your passion, enough to do the hard work and see it realized.
I am curious to learn what 2022 has to teach me.
I wish each and every one of you a happy and healthy new you in 2022.
Be well and DDBR!
