I love the end of the year and the beginning of the next.
It’s a time to reflect and to get clear on purpose.
Remembering the year is not about regretting past mistakes but looking honestly with Spirit at the choices you have made.
How often have you made decisions from a personal point of view?
Have you considered yourself, your relationships, your family, your work or your money without asking guidance from Spirit?
Do you look back with joy on the times you listened to the guidance of Spirit and had a deep connection with all of life?
You have never given any problem to the Holy Spirit He has not solved to you, nor will you ever do so. You have never tried to solve anything yourself and been successful. Is it not time you brought these facts together and made sense of them?
What is your purpose for next year?
This is a year of joy, in which your listening will increase and peace will grow with its increase. For love asks only that you be happy, and will give you everything that makes for happiness.
What a great intention and purpose for 2015: To want your listening to increase because you desire an experience of peace!
Then you hear a Voice that reminds you, that you are joy, peace and love.
And from that place of inner peace you know what to do and say.
Hearing guidance and solving problems becomes a natural consequence of your desire to remember happiness.
The Voice may make no sound. You may call it “intuition”, “your heart’s desire” or a “gut feeling”. But there will no be no doubt in you mind that you are listening. And you also know that you have made a choice to listen.
I wish you a year in which your inner listening increases.
Much Love James
