This is the time of year—and over the last three or four weeks we’ve been talking about letting go of old things, building a new place for new things, trusting—this is a great time for what I like to call spiritual renewal. Because what’s really happening is, I look out my window and all my green trees are now brown and gray, and yet because of that, there’s more light coming into the house. You see?
And so, there’s all these possibilities when we look at things and we think they’re a certain way, that doesn’t mean they’re that way. When you start to set yourself with the intention of, “I wonder what next year is going to bring? I wonder what these holidays will bring?”
The holidays should bring you back to you. Give yourself a hug. Give yourself a gift. We went to see a movie the other night called “The Intern.” I couldn’t recommend it more. Wonderful, fun, kind, spiritual movie. Go along and see it. Little things that you could do for yourself during the holidays makes the Spirit smile. Sometimes we find ourselves alone, in the appearance of being alone, during the holidays. What are the possibilities in that? Getting to know yourself a little better. Sleeping in a little longer. Doing something for yourself. Calling an old friend. Emailing someone can bring a smile on their face. There’s all kinds of wonderful things you can do.
Alfred and I tried to go see “Star Wars,” and we got caught up in the traffic, and there was no way in the world—Alfred even bought the tickets online—we could even get near the theatre. Everybody in the mall going last minute shopping. That’s not what the holidays are about. The holidays are about reflection. Remember I was telling Alfred about the Christmas’s past I was so thrilled to have been part of. All of those people are gone now, but oh my goodness, it brings a smile to my face to remember the decorations, and now in this time, I have new friends. Alfred and I are speaking to people. Alfred is doing a bunch of stuff online with people he hasn’t seen in twenty years. There’s tons of possibilities at this time of the year. Then when we turn our little heads from what was, was is, to what’s going to be, we look at the vast 2016 landscape and there’s nothing there. Isn’t that wonderful? Because at the holiday time, the Spirit gives you the tools for the new beginning. You know that, don’t you, Alfred?
Spirit gives you the tools for the new beginning during the holiday times.
Well, the last couple of shows we’ve been talking about letting go and making space, and that’s what’s most important. The truth is the energy for possibilities is always there. What we’re saying is, this is a wonderful time to make space for those possibilities, to let go of things, so you have room, you’re available for what could come to you. You’re not in control, holding on to the thing disconnecting yourself from your possibilities, so for the last few weeks we’ve been talking about letting go, clearing, making space. The holidays and the end of the year are a good time so that you can start your new beginnings.
You remember, kids, the early years of this show, and I used to talk about your chalkboard is how you act out your life and at a certain point you’ve written so much on the chalkboard that there’s really no more room to write anything new. No room to talk about possibilities, it’s done. And remember we talked about the void and I said the void is a time Spirit uses to erase your chalkboard. You flail and kick and moan and groan, the same thing you did at school when the teacher started to erase it, and you hadn’t copied everything yet. Well, that’s what Spirit does during the holidays for so many of us. They begin to erase the chalkboard. But remember what Spirit said to you, They always give you new chalks. Many colored chalks, which are possibilities. So when the board is erased and you think you’re at the end and there’s nothing you can look forward to and you’re sitting there wondering, “What’s going to happen now? I don’t like my job,” or “I don’t have a job, I don’t have a partner, I don’t like the partner I’m with. What’s going to happen for me?” Spirit is listening. And They’re saying, “Remember the chalks.”
So for all of you, when you turn and you look at the empty space, or the void of your existence, that’s the time when you should party. When you should go out, enjoy yourself. Say, “I don’t know what’s coming up, but I know my God loves me, Spirit loves, is giving me new chalks, and next year I can’t wait to see the end of the year to see what’s happened.” That’s what you all should be doing.
I saw a little hint one time that said, every time something really good happens to you, write it down on a piece paper and put it into a jar and at the end of the year read all those little pieces of paper so that you can remember all the goodness that happened to you throughout the year.
Do you remember some years ago when Oprah had that grateful thing on her show and she asked us to everyday write down one thing you were grateful for that day, and then at the end of the year you’ll have three hundred and something things you were grateful for. And go back and read those. We forget the good that happens in the year. We only concentrate on what we perceived is the bad and what we perceived didn’t happen.
And that’s tough. A lot of us fall into that human-ness of thinking about what you don’t have, instead of remembering that your glass is half full.
Put your energy toward the positive.
You know as you grow older, what you learn is that the only value in life is love. Nothing else holds any value, the rest is ego. What didn’t happen, who didn’t show up, it’s all ego.
The truth of the matter is, we are these baby angels having a human experience. You hear me talk about it all the time, and if we have a demon, if we have a devil, it is our own mind chatter. And our mind chatter continues to get in our way year after year after year, and reminds us of all the things we didn’t get, what didn’t happen, “Oh and this could happen or that could happen. I didn’t like doing this,” or “I didn’t like doing that.” We all forget we made it. We got here, by hook or by crook, but we got here.
Next year, I think we’ll be going in our sixth year of doing the show, next April, and when we started this, we had, I think, eight people. Now we’re all over the world. So just to help you out here, folks, remember when you can’t see anything, hear anything, feel anything, you’re perfect at that moment. Because that’s the moment Spirit is using to re-define your energy. To pull together the things you’re hoping you can experience.
Remember always, the first seven days of January, sets the intention for the year. Everybody listening? Hello? First seven days. Make a list of what you would like to experience in the coming year. Not what you want children, what you would like to experience, it’s two different things. Put that in an envelope, put the date on it, put your name on it and put it in a drawer. Next January, have a look-see. See how much of that has come true.
The reason I ask you to do this is going back to our teachings about setting your intentions. Energy following thought. When you understand that you’ve set your intention, then you can have a quiet expectation that Spirit already heard that. They’ll take care of it. Don’t worry. Be happy.
And that will conclude the lesson for today.
