Greetings and many blessings for the year to come. May it be a fruitful and prosperous one for you.
For many humans, the New Year is a time for resolving to change their habits and lifestyle towards being healthier, thinner or happier. Any decision to change is admirable, because any change brings about consequences that impact upon others as well as oneself, and these can be both positive and negative as well as challenging. Any change made to alter behaviour in order to improve one’s wellbeing and lifestyle is a change in vibration and some people cope better than others. Many people lack commitment and soon revert back to their old ways, comfortable in the knowledge that perhaps they can try again next year. Others have the drive and determination but lack the resources, such as money or knowledge, to truly implement the change they have been looking for. No matter how small the change may be, success will only be achieved when alterations are made in all four bodies (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual) and on the subconscious as well as conscious level.
The most common New Year’s resolutions are to either lose weight or to give up smoking, but they can also include making more time to spend with family, taking that long thought-about holiday or saving more money. The driving force behind most resolutions is unhappiness with an aspect of self or of one’s life, but if the person were to dig deeper into the reasons behind wanting change it would most likely be lack of self-love, self-worth and self-confidence. Deeper below that would be anxiety about how other people see them and a sense of disconnection and of not belonging. These deep feelings and beliefs are rarely recognised on a conscious level, so most people can remain unaware of their presence and of the undermining impact they have on different aspects of their life.
No change can be achieved unless the reasons for the behaviour needing to be changed are at first recognised and consequently dealt with, and any resolution will only result in change if the person recognises their deep spiritual, mental and emotional needs beyond merely their physical ones. Healing past wounds and trauma and consciously changing negative self-belief systems on all of these four levels will be significantly more effective in lifting the blockages that have originally caused self-sabotaging behaviour such as smoking, comfort-eating or drug-taking. If the blockages are not dealt with then the likelihood that the person will stop these behaviours are very small. This is because the vibration of the blockages which may stem from trauma, lack of self-love, disconnection etc. are so much lower than the vibration of improvement. The lower vibration will eventually drag the higher energy down to its own level and the attempt at change will ultimately fail.
Dealing with past trauma and self-sabotaging belief systems can be confronting and quite traumatic in themselves. If you are serious about changing your life for the better, however, then the only way forward is to heal the ghosts of the past. So, the message is simple: you must heal the reason for the behaviour you wish to change before implementing the action of change.
