Here are some thoughts about new year resolutions from Abraham Hicks.
" They are a wonderful idea, they fall into the same category as segment intending or positive expectations or deliberate creation. Most new years resolutions, like any new decisions, are made from a rather clear awareness of what you do not want, or of what has not gone well, and so in order to set your new year resolutions into motion with momentum to keep them going, it is necessary to spend some time lining up your energy with your new decision. Many people make resolutions, and often by the first or second day of the new year, they have gone back to their old habits and then they feel discouraged.
Everyday provides a wonderful opportunity to set forth your clear intentions, you do not have to wait for a new calender year.
Find a comfortable place where you will not be interrupted. Write at the top of your notebook page " My dominant intentions" Then write 4 sub-headings..My current intentions regarding my body, my relationships, my home, my work. Then write a general description of how you want to feel and be regarding each of the 4 categories, be general and easy, let these words come easily from you.
Now, go back to the first category, focus on the topic and sit back, relax and daydream about this. Imagine your body looking just as you would like it to look, see it in your minds eye. Try to imagine how that beautiful body would feel, move it in your imagination, take it for a walk, dress it in something that pleases you, appreciate its stamina and flexibility . Spend as much time daydreaming about this wonderful physical vehicle as you can, Stay in your vision until you feel refreshed and continue to be there as long as you can.
Now go to the second category and do the same thing, bring an image of the most significant person in your life experience, and see that person with you, feel appreciation for that person, mentally speak your appreciation. Imagine that person loving you back, praising you and complimenting you. Feel your mutual appreciation and admiration, stay within the vision until you feel refreshed.
Now go to the third category and feel appreciation for your home. Make mental pictures of your home as you want it to be. See it orderly, if you desire that, and beautifully furnished if you desire that, in an easy and carefree manner. Imagine it however you would like it to be. Take pleasure from your vision and stay there until you feel refreshed.
Now go to the forth page, and gather a mental picture of your work, feel appreciation for the excuse it gives you to flow energy towards something, acknowledge how expansive it is and feel appreciation for its ever expanding nature. See yourself expanding and thriving, stay there until you are refreshed.
There is no right or wrong way to approach this. The thing that is important, is that you choose areas of you life that matter most, and that you conjure positive images that "THRILL" you, and as you do that, you have not only resolved in your own mind how your new year will be. But you have notified everyone and everything in the universe, and you have solicited their assistance in achieving your intentions, and from that moment forward, the entire universe will conspire to assist you"
