And now…the New Year is here. I have been hearing many people talking about their New Year Resolutions. Right there from the radio people start pouring in their New Year Resolution; what does New Year Resolution mean to you? Do you do New Year Resolutions?
I used to do New Year Resolution but I stopped. Now, do not get me wrong. I am not saying it is bad for us to set intentions or want to achieve some things in our lives. It is perfectly okay but I want to remind you that change starts from the mind. Every moment is a manifestation; what I have grown to learn and understand is that having New Year Resolution makes you attached to your goals and dreams. Manifesting mavens and people who are on their journey to Enlightenment understands that attachment is a repellant energy.
When I first read Buddha say “Attachment is the root cause of suffering.” I dismissed it as just a cliché (Lols). Now I may have never gotten the same level of wisdom and knowledge like the Buddha. But something happened: after some time, I came across the teaching of detachment which I read from Deepak Chopra’s book Seven Laws of Spiritual Success. When I read the Law of Detachment; I was like WOW!!! The Buddha could not have said it any better! Buddha was right after all! I have read This Chopra’s book twice. Detachment is what I am growing more in because Doris Day has told us that Que Sera Sera.
I want to tell you something about manifestation. It is “trickish” and never linear. “Play” with your manifestations and you become enticing to your dreams. In fact your dreams will be the ones chasing after you (side note: I am using the word “play” to mean detachment and levity. When Debbianne DeRose first told me to hold everything with LEVITY I did not quite agree until I realized attachment is against manifesting. Even the talented Nigerian singer Patoranking also advised us in his song Alubarika; he said “don’t take things too serious, just take time to have fun…” I used to be so attached to things and people but now I am handling everything with LEVITY. If you become attached to your dreams you are acting from the place of powerlessness, fear and desperation = repellant and negative energies!
When my life SHIFTED into a POSITIVE MOMENTUM; it had NOTHING to do with New Year Resolution! Let me explain, back then in 2017 I was having many difficulties and hardships—suffice to say that I was just living in rut and cycles; struggling and futility. Then in January 2018, my life took a turn around from the Ethereal… I remind you that the Intangible ALWAYS precedes the Tangible! In my full transparency, I did not make any New Year Resolution.
Later in that fateful January of 2018; I set a very powerful intention (NOT as a New Year Resolution). It came out from my mind as a BURNING DESIRE that something has to CHANGE in my life. The Universe nudged me and I followed up. On that Sunday morning, I lay me down on the bed, alone in the house; then I was inspired to script. I took my pen and paper and made a very powerful scripting; I also scripted for the Angels to show me vivid synchronicity that my requests have been heard and they did because I was enfolded with faith, confidence, mindfulness, happiness and peace that surpassed all understanding! Subliminally ASSURED I was that my requests have been heard!
I did that scripting for 21 days. Once I was done, I let go and forgot about it. This ritual was a GAME-CHANGER for me! Within 60 days my life shifted into a positive momentum; I began to experience abundance, help, healing and joy. Plus my dreams “awakened.”
I got my wealth of knowledge about the Law of Attraction and Manifesting from these four Divas: Sarah Prout, Jeannette Maw, Debbianne DeRose and Nathalie Thompson). Read my article about the Law of Attraction so that you will understand how Law of Attraction and Manifesting works (plus all hidden truths that you were never told in the book called The Secret—a book by Rhonda Byrne. Sadly, even The Secret does not have the “Secret” to Law of Attraction and Manifesting).
Now the thing about these four powerful women is that they recognize God, Angels, Fairy-Elfin-Friends, Spirit Guides, Cosmic Forces, Universe and Higher Power. They believe that WITHOUT these Greater Invisible Energies we CANNOT manifest! And that is TRUE—if you think you have all the power to yourself; you are setting yourself up for frustration and defeat. How do you manifest without the help of the Angels, Universe or the Cosmic Forces? Tell me how! It is so gut-wrenching and disappointing that many so-called Law of Attraction “experts” are now misleading people with wrong knowledge about Law of Attraction and Manifesting.
The bitter truth is that no matter what, we are not in control. You can write your New Year Resolutions and blah, blah, blah. But you do not have the final say and we are certainly not in full control in creating our realities.
Here is what this amazing Yoga teacher has to say:
“Whatever directions you look at, you NEVER know what’s coming….Our mind wants to know and likes to believe that we can plan our future…The truth we have to HUMBLY accept is, that we can only do and try our best, but the FINAL result of our efforts or desires is NEVER completely in our hands.
We have to SURRENDER our efforts and wishes to the Universe and learn to accept whatever the universe sends us…
We CANNOT determine what will happen but we can believe that anything that happens is exactly what NEEDS to happen in the MAGICAL game of life.
Life just happens. Do not take it personal.
We CANNOT understand logically why bad things happen or why our efforts won’t be rewarded. Some things just don’t make sense to our limited human mind.
If we go beyond the mind through meditation practice we might get a glimpse of the pure energy which underlies all creation and experience how all forms of existence/nature are just playing their assigned part in this divine play we call life…”

When I first read this article from Tina Mundelsee I was overwhelmed and enfolded in goosebumps because I knew it was a BITTER TRUTH. I remind you that truth is not always sweet to the ears. Suffice to say that I was HUMBLED!
So, now that the New Year has come; the ideal thing is to hold your dreams in your heart; live with mindfulness, engage in self-care, self-love and get into cahoots with God/Universe, Angels and Cosmic Forces.
I would love to wrap it up with these powerful and overwhelming quotes below:
“We know that our willpower is a powerful force, and we find it hard to believe that there may be other (sometimes greater) energies at play in determining the outcomes of our lives. The idea that we may sometimes be called to surrender our own will to a greater force (or at least loosen our grip on the reigns of control), can conflict with what we believe to be the measure of an empowered person” -Jessi Kohlhagen
“Even when you think you have your life all mapped out, things happen that shape your destiny in ways you might never have imagined.” -Deepak Chopra
I am wishing us a VERY prosperous, illustrious, successful New Year filled with mindfulness and levity
Welcome to 2021
