Conscious Creation: New Years Resolution

By Dr. Sheri Rosenthal

I've made a lot of New Years resolutions in my time, perhaps more than I'd like to remember! But my favorite resolution was when I decided to start creating my life consciously rather than unconsciously.

You might be thinking that you are creating your life consciously. But, if I asked you to tell me what your intent is for this year, chances are you wouldn't be able to answer my question at first. Perhaps you would need to think about it for a while. But, while I was waiting for your answer, life would be moving on and the lack of clarity in your mind would be what you would be creating in your life.

Conflicting beliefs that exist in the mind create conflicting outcomes in life. If you want to create something exciting in your life, but you don't believe that you can do it, what are you putting out there? The universe works on the basis of action-reaction. If your action is the creation of confusing or conflicting thought-forms then the reaction of life will be confusing or conflicting situations within your dream.

Most of us are creating the dream of our life from our sub-conscious mind. We don't have a conscious purpose because we are often afraid that life will disappoint us if we do. And we don't want to feel the pain that could result from the disappointment. It's simply better not to ask. Instead, rather than creating consciously, we go through life reacting to whatever is happening to us in the moment. To me this is not creating with clarity or purpose, but instead floating through life dodging whatever comes our way. It is a reactionary way of living and it has a way of causing us to feel like we are victims of life rather than the creators of life.

To create consciously using our intent, we must be single-minded. In other words, our desire must be focused solely on what it is we would like to create. There is no doubt in our mind about anything. We "know, in a way that does not involve thinking, that we can do it. If we close our eyes we can see our creation and it feels so good. Yet at the same time, we are not attached to the outcome and we are ready to adjust our dream in any direction that life is showing us - at any time. We are flexible rather than rigid. As a result we are both the director of life and the servant of life - and from this point of view there are no victims.

I would like to challenge you to create consciously in this new year. Take some time to sit and dream about the upcoming year. This is one way of practicing the Toltec technique of Dreaming. Ask yourself, what would you like to create? Where do you want to go? What dreams have been lying dormant in your heart? What have you been waiting for? Don't think that you can do it - know that you can do it!
