New Year, New You 2024:
A Guide to Deep Self-Reflection and Meaningful New Year’s Resolutions
The Journey Begins
As we stand at the threshold of another year, it’s customary to talk about New Year’s resolutions. We’ve all been there, making grand plans for the year ahead. But today, let’s embark on a slightly different journey. Let’s delve deeper into understanding where we aspire to be, where we are in life and what’s holding us back. It’s not just about setting resolutions; it’s about integrating meaningful changes into our daily lives.
The Power of Now
Embrace the present moment. Often, we’re so caught up in past regrets or future anxieties that we forget to live in the now. My guides (BeBe) talk about how when we are in FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real), we live in a false projection of the future rather than in the now. When you shift your focus to this projected future, you are now present in the “now” moment and therefore are unable to create what you most desire. You are unable to create that which you most desire, because you are basing your creations of this falsely projected future which has no traction, no bearing in the present moment – which is the place you actually exist within. Being mindful of the present helps us gain clarity, provides traction and sets a solid foundation for growth.
Setting Meaningful Resolutions
Beyond the Surface: While it’s easy to make generic resolutions like losing weight or saving money, let’s dig deeper. What are the values and dreams that drive you? Your resolutions should be a reflection of your innermost desires. Emotion and intent are the currency of creation. Feel the emotional attachment to that which you most desire and let that be your primary focus.
Crafting Goals That Resonate: Create goals that are not just achievable, but also resonate with your core. For instance, instead of just aiming to lose weight, focus on leading a healthier lifestyle that brings joy and vitality to your life. Look at the why you desire the thing you most desire and make that your focus.
The Essence of Self-Reflection
Before we set out to change, it’s crucial to understand our starting point. Take a moment to reflect on where you are in your life right now. What are your joys, your challenges, your triumphs, and your regrets? This can be a painful process. However, awareness is essential. You cannot become something else, if you aren’t in touch with what you currently are. The more you are in touch with your emotions and define your current reality, the more traction you will have in releasing from those unwanted emotions and states of being.
Remember, honesty is key in this introspective journey.
Uncovering Emotional Barriers
Identifying What Holds You Back
Often, it’s not the lack of desire, but underlying emotions that hold us back. Fear, self-doubt and past traumas can be significant obstacles. It’s essential to acknowledge and confront these feelings. We need to get an understanding of what is driving us. Sometimes we can keep holding ourselves in a particular pattern due to fear, but it can also be due to what is called a “secondary benefit”.
A secondary benefit to staying overweight may be that people leave you alone. So, let’s say your goal is to lose weight – which you can never seem to do no matter how much you diet, because you always end up sabotaging it. You may think you are unsuccessful because you haven’t enough willpower. However, if we identify the emotions underneath, we might conclude that you fear intimacy. Therefore the secondary benefit to sabotaging your diet is to keep people at arm’s length. Ah-ha! This is what needs to be addressed, not weight loss. Get it?
Allow yourself to be vulnerable. It’s okay to have fears and doubts. Even though the most seemingly successful people in the world have their own fears and doubts – which are usually the driving forces in their lives. The key is to acknowledge these concerns and work through them, not to let them control your actions.
Integrating Changes into Daily Life
Small Steps, Big Impact
Remember, the KISS – Keep It Simple Sister motto is “Feeling Great by Feeling Better”. It’s about the incremental changes one makes in one’s life on a consistent basis that creates the habit. Integrating significant changes into your life doesn’t happen overnight. Go easy and start with small, manageable steps that gradually lead you towards your goal.
Creating a Supportive Environment
Surround yourself with positivity and support. Whether it’s friends, family, or a community group, having a supportive environment can significantly impact your journey. Everywhere you look, you will see interest groups that form to create community to support one another. There will be good days and bad days. Having these supports built-in will keep the journey towards your goal, light, fun and focused!
The Role of Consistency: As was just mentioned, consistency is the key to long-term change. It’s not about making huge leaps but about taking consistent, small steps towards your goals.
Overcoming Setbacks: Setbacks are a natural part of any journey. Instead of getting discouraged, use them as learning experiences. We actually learn from the moment we start walking – and even before – that failure is necessary for correction and growth. Each setback is an opportunity to grow and improve.

The Path to Self-Discovery
This journey is about more than just setting and achieving goals. It’s about understanding yourself, confronting your fears, and making changes that resonate with your inner self. Let’s make this year not just about resolutions, but about a deeper understanding of who and all that you are and integration of the changes necessary to enhance your life. Here’s to a year of growth, self-discovery, and meaningful change. Embrace the journey, and may it lead you to a fulfilling and joyous path.
