it’s my 6th favorite day of the year… =)


I wish you a day filled with magic and light, bright beginnings… to walk on that ancient bridge from what does not nurture you in your life to a new path upon which your desires and dreams can be forged. As you ready to release the old year, I wish for you the clarity and determination to pursue absolute happiness in the new year.

I wish for you peace, happiness, adventures unfolding as would best please you, and comfort; deep within your soul, and contentment, and joy. I love you; you are worth all of this and more…

My belly is full of nourishing food, my house is scrubbed and shining, a joss stick fills the air with dusky smoke; the ancient scent of oils used thousands of years ago for this same day, this same purpose. Cleansing ritual, readying ritual, moving beyond what was to what will be. Clean, calm, cool, silent and bright. Filled with love and light and possibility, a new day, a new season, a new year of infinite chance.

Notice I said above that we are readying to “release the old year?” This is a concept common throughout the Eastern philosophies like Confucianism and Buddhism. A shift in perspective, folks, this is what I have been talking about all this time. =) Not that a new year is happening TO us, that we are merely carried along in this life on a tide. But it is time for US to release the old year… WE have the power inside of us to contemplate, and realize, and LET GO. Set aside these cold dregs of this past year, practically gone already, and breathe deeply. Visualize the new year, bold, unbroken, stretching out before you. Release the old, WILLINGLY pick up the new. Try it on for size, dance with it a bit, set it down in a safe place while you contemplate the wonder. Then go back, pick it up again, and carry it with pride. A new year, YOUR new year. Your reality is yours alone, grab and fashion the bestest, most splendiferous, 365 day ball of perfection that YOU can imagine. After all, this is not about anyone else in this whole, wide universe but you. This is freedom, empowerment, living at it’s finest. And this is what I wish for YOU. =)
