Try something new. Even a small change can bring great comfort, excitement, movement. Add something to your day, or take something away. Wear a different color or style. Introduce yourself to someone new. Go to a different library or store than you are used to. Buy a different kind of music or go to a movie you wouldn't ordinarily see. Life is an experiment. Have at it!

Sing out! Express the beauty that is within you. Create art, music, drama, literature. Cook, sew, knit, embroider. Make jewelry, rugs, lamps, chairs. Look at a problem in a new way. Challenge yourself. Speak your truth in all that you create. Beauty is within you and joy is created when you release it to the world. Shine, shine, shine!

Please, please, please believe in yourself and in your happiness. You suffer. We see it. We hold you in our hearts. We know your suffering is mere illusion. Your suffering is conditioned. Your suffering is merely resistance to what is. Embrace the life you lead. Embrace the world as it is. Continue to envision well-being and peace. Continue to envision contentment and joy. Continue to envision good works and success. Wherever you are in your life, all is well. Look for peace and you will find it. Look for joy and it is yours. Relax. Enjoy. Know the truth of the beauty of your existence. You are precious.

You are more psychic than you know. Open up to it without fear. Get some training and support. Try it out. As long as you approach your connection with love and acceptance, all is well. We are always here to protect you. There are no demons to harm you. All that is just your own anxiety, and the teaching of small minds. All is love. Love is all.

What is the threshold you are now approaching? There is always a door to walk through, always a window to open. What is the encumbrance you are leaving behind? What is the new chapter you are beginning? What is the next step moving you toward? Make every day a conscious choice for good, for joy, for peace. Make your acceptance of what is complete, so that the new vistas opening up to you won't be obscured by your focus on what is "wrong." Bless you on your glorious journey.

Allow yourself the pleasure of receiving love and service. Allow yourself the pleasure of loving and serving. There is great joy in the balance of giving and receiving. Those who allow themselves only to give wind up resentful and angry, or lonely and depressed. Many of them choose not to stay in physical incarnation very long. Those who allow themselves only to receive are living half a life. They wind up mystified as to why they are not happy. "I have everything I could possibly want? Why am I so depressed?" The answer is balance. Give when you are able. Ask for what you want, and accept the answer, yes or no, with equanimity.

Once again we are moved to speak of physical death. We know how hard it is to practice faith in the wake of the loss of a dear one. We remember the physical attachment to physical identity. Grieve. Get angry. Go numb. Whatever it is that happens for you during the aftermath of a death is completely normal and acceptable. However, do remind yourself as often as you can that you are so much more than your physical body, that the connections between you are enduring and eternal, that the spirit of your loved one is always with you, as your spirit is with them. Remember and honor them, and turn your eyes to the ones around you still. Love one another. Love one another. Love one another.

January seems to us an odd time for new beginnings. Why not springtime when your mother earth is renewing herself? Ah well, what does it matter anyway? Any time is perfect for a new beginning -- any year, any month, any day, any time of day or night. Choose your moment and declare a new beginning. You have the power, you and you alone. Choose your moment.
