Out With The Old, In With The New

by Larry Gifford

As you begin the new year, one of the things you can do to prepare yourself for whatever the Universe sends your way is to let go of everything from 2010 (good and bad) and start fresh with new, creative life force energy in 2011. Doing this helps you to be in present time and create a spiritual space to manifest a beautiful, loving, balanced, successful, healthy, and abundant new year.

Throughout your body and energetic system you are holding on to everything that happened in 2010; the good times and the bad,  the triumphs and defeats in your career, your love life, your health and more. In order to start the new year with new energy, just let go of 2010. I know, it’s easy to say, but hard to do.  Here is one way to go about it based on a guided meditation I conducted this past weekend.

The next time you are in a quiet space or in meditation, ask your higher self to help you release the energy you are clinging to from the past year. You don’t need to know what it is you are releasing or even “see” it, just give yourself permission to let it all go.  This helps take you out of the past and provides a clean slate to create the life you deserve in the here and now. While you are releasing you can just “release everything” in one fell swoop or systematically call upon certain energies to exit your space. Here is a list of some energies you may want to let go of…

  • All your energy surrounding work and your ability to earn and keep money
  • Physical health problems
  • Commitments kept and broken
  • Your ability to create and finish projects
  • Your general sense of safety
  • All of the emotions you expressed and suppressed
  • All feelings of guilt
  • Your ability to accomplish things in life
  • Your ego; how you see yourself and others in daily life
  • Your experiences with loving yourself and others; heartache, heartbreak, self-doubt, self-denial, self-esteem, self-worth
  • Your ability to communicate with yourself and others; verbally, non-verbally and listening
  • Everything that was said about you in 2010, and everything you said about other people
  • Intuition, coincidences, deja vu, and general knowingness
  • Ability or inability to make decisions
  • Your experiences with religion and spirituality, including your connection to higher source
  • Your peace
  • Your oneness

As you call for the energy to leave your energetic space, you can imagine a rose in front you and direct all the energy into the rose. It can be any size, any color, with or without thorns or leaves or dew. This is your rose. It can grow as big as you need it to be to hold all the energy you send into it. After it’s filled up, place an imaginary stick of dynamite under the rose, light the fuse and blow it up. This doesn’t hurt the energy, but instead de-energizes it and cleans it, leaving millions and millions of tiny neutralized particles of energy. Give the energy a push and send it back to wherever it came from (the Universe knows) and call your own energy back to you in the form of a giant golden sun above your head. This energy collecting above your head is new, creative life force energy. It allows you to create anything and everything you want in 2011 so long as it’s in the best interest of all involved and in the best interest of your journey. Let the sun fall into your body and fill you up from head to toe. Feel the warmth of the golden glow and the sensation that you are free to create at will and move forward in your life without being tethered to the past.

Allow yourself to be here — on this planet, in this city and state, in this particular place, at this specific time — right now. This is present time. This is where dreams and ideas are actualized into everyday life.

Welcome to 2011. Enjoy the journey.
