I have to enter the NEW YEAR harnessing good energy and a positive attitude. This year I wanted to participate in something peaceful and mentally stimulating. I told my friend that I would be hand to heart center for New Year’s Eve (a prayer position in yoga). He probably thought I was joking, but I was too serious. I started attending yoga classes a few months ago and was thrilled to find out that there was a special New Year’s Eve class at 8th Street Studio in Charlotte (talk about speaking it into existence). It was everything in one… meditation, chanting, asanas, self-reflection, and more.
Of course I attended and I have to admit it was pretty amazing! 10pm to midnight. A solid two hours of good energy. It was a great way to start 2013.During the session we were instructed to participate in two writing activities. One, was a letter that we wrote to ourselves about what 2013 would be like. The plan was that the instructors would mail our letters back to us some time in the new year of 2013. The second activity consisted of us writing down a list of things that we wanted leave behind in 2012. Five minutes shy of midnight everyone set their list to flames… literally. It was a good feeling watching those pieces of paper burn.
We can’t undo the things in our past, but we can learn from them and move forward. Everyday that you’re given is a new day. To see a NEW YEAR is a blessing! I felt good as I left the studio. I felt it in my spirit. It was a similar feeling that I felt last year, but much more profound. I’m thankful for the year 2012. It revealed another level of who I am. Now, I look forward to the year 2013!
peace, love, & prosperity!
