2012 Completion and 2013 Beginnings

How do you end what has been experienced by you?
Do you take time to complete past experiences?
Do you fully receive and appreciate your challenges, learning, regrets and blessings?
What are you doing to receive the benefits of the past year?

People move from one year to another, one relationship and one job to another without benefit. 
People seem to avoid or push aside or become defensive and deny what they have learned and regretted.
People often simply want to move on without fully receiving the gifts of yesterday to bless them today.
Where you hold regrets and guilt you may fail to learn and benefit from what has been.

Take time to offer honorable closure with the year past. (See the process below.)
When you want to lighten the burden of past errors, destructive habits or hurt, use forgiveness.
Take time to write down all that you want to release from your mind, emotions and body.
Purify it with burning, burying, shredding and forgiving the words your have written.

Really undo what you no longer want to be true for you.
Let go of what you no longer need that which no longer serves you.
Relinquish the stuff you have accumulated that does not make you happy.
Give up and lighten up and clean up your space so you make room for the coming Good.

There are rituals and affirmations you can use to stay conscious and clear your creative canvas.
I no longer cling to what has no value or meaning for me.
I set myself free to be fully that which I Am in giving and living.
I write the script for my life with positive love and enthusiasm.
I know what I want and I go for it.
Life is a beautiful masterpiece of my creative passion and spiritual guidance.
I no longer cling to unhappiness, fear or failure as I release myself simply to happy, loving successes.

We can take time during our New Year’s celebration to write the qualities we seek to live in 2013.
We can use proclamations and declarations to clarify with confidence and certainty our deepest desires.
We can recycle those blessing and learnings from the past to build our future.
We can enjoy with full appreciation everything we have and give ourselves the rewards of fulfillment.

I encourage you and each one to take the time to participate in meaningful ritual.
I invite you and everyone to fully forgive the past trusting that all that benefits will be retained.
I support you in nurturing and nourishing your inspired vision and highest desires for Good.
I trust you to do what is Good for you and I believe in your willingness and ability to create Goodness.

With the experiences of Goodness come great Peace.
With the experience of Peace, comes happiness.
With the enjoyment of Happiness comes profound Love.
With Love, Happiness and Peace, all things are possible.

Dare to give your Self what you really want!

Honorable Closure        

How do you complete a relationship, a marriage, a teaching-learning experience, a job, a friendship? How do you know you are really complete?
Often people walk away without really finishing the spiritual work, because it is easier emotionally.   People don’t know how to come to a truly peaceful place, where “good-bye” is really “God be with You.”  
When we are complete, we are at peace and in love.  
We have no regrets, no resentments, no unhappy memories. 

Honorable closure acknowledges:
1)   the learning and growth received, 
2)   challenges and difficulties experienced, 
3)   appreciation of gifts and blessings, 
4)   forgiveness and amends made. 

Acknowledge within your self and with the other person all that you have learned and how you have grown and benefited from the experience. 

Honor and express the challenges and difficulties that occurred and perhaps were endured during the time together. 

Offer your gratitude and appreciation to the other for the benefits you received.

Share your forgiveness and/or make amends for those places of unconscious or conscious errors of omission or commission.  Often neither party is aware of what went unexpressed until the two have an opportunity to talk together.  This is very valuable when done with the conscious intention for a peaceful conclusion.  

And lastly, give your full appreciation and blessings to those whom you are leaving.   

Honorable closure always includes a face to face or heart to heart connection so that all parties have a full opportunity to express their piece of the whole. Incompletion is never one sided. If one party loses and is in grief neither person is at peace.  
Do your part when you part. 
When we complete a relationship, job, living situation with honor for all, we are free to choose again without being haunted by the past or unconsciously repeating the same patterns. 

To move on, to create anew, to be fully inspired requires honorable closure.  Begin now.

Saying good-bye can be done with love, respect and profound gratitude and inner peace.
