How Can Being Vigorous, Strong and Empowered Be Good For You?

As a new year approaches you, think about how empowering it can feel to take charge of creating the life you desire.

Feel how strong you can be by developing practices of exercising your body and a strong spiritual practice. You can begin anew by releasing resentments, negativity, and grudges. Whew, how light you’d feel. Take time to wonder why you are carrying that baggage. Why let that be part of your life today?

You have more to live for than that.

Be vigorous by choosing to spread your wings. Where could you open to something new that would bring great joy and satisfaction? One of my husband’s friends was telling me how he decided to be more sociable. Not be so isolated and lonely. He is stepping out of his comfort zone for his well-being. He is having a New Year’s Eve Party.

How can you choose to be vigorous, strong, and empowered?

As Abraham-Hicks says, “We’re asking you to trust in the Well-being. In optimism, there is magic. In pessimism, there is nothing. In positive expectation, there is thrill and success. In pessimism or awareness of what is not wanted, there is nothing. What you’re wanting to do is redefine your relationship with the Stream. We do not ask you to look at something that is black and call it white. We do not ask you to see something that is not as you want it to be and pretend that it is. What we ask you to do is practice moving your gaze. Practice changing your perspective. Practice talking to different people. Practice going to new places. Practice sifting through the data for the things that feel like you want to feel and using those things to cause you to feel a familiar place. In other words, we want you to feel familiar in your joy. Familiar in your positive expectation, familiar in your knowing that all is well because this Universe will knock itself out giving you evidence of that Well-being once you find that place.”

Your inner world is reflecting your outer world. What are you seeing?

Decide you are worth doing some investigating, some inner reflections about what you really want and what you are willing to do to make those things happen.

I know for too many the vision of aging is someone weak and feeble. I don’t know where you are on that spectrum, but what you are thinking is creating your tomorrow.

Yes, it takes work to overcome the natural losses.

Think vigorous, strong, and empowered.

You have approximately 60,000 thoughts in a day. Your thoughts matter.

John-Roger, DSS says it great, “We must consciously watch what we think about and the energy that we put into our thoughts. We must watch the things that we allow to cycle and re-cycle through our minds. Watchfulness brings liberty. Liberty brings greater freedom. The price of freedom is eternal vigilance. If you put off being watchful until tomorrow, you put off your freedom until tomorrow.”

Begin this new year investing in your well-being.

Ask yourself – “How could I be vigorous?” What pops up for you?

Is that in movement?

Is that in how you approach life? More vitality, more purpose.

Is that in how you stand up for yourself and take time for yourself? Showing you matter in this lifetime.

As you think about strong being good for you. What is there for you?

Strong in your words, actions and deeds? You live by your principles and core values.

Strong in taking the best care ever of your temple, your body.
You work on building muscle mass – even 2% more.

Strong in your connections – your Higher Power, friends, and family.

Finally, how could you feel more empowered?

Could that be that you trust and honor yourself more?

Could that be you speak up for yourself and ideas more? The world needs more feminine energy swirling around.

Could that be you find a way to be of greater service in a way that thrills your soul? Not depleting of another thing to do.

Life is calling you to show up in a bigger way. You were created in the image and likeness of God.

Decide that now is the time to be the greatest version of yourself by being vigorous, strong, and empowered.
