I asked my Chums about the New Year in 2009 and what we can do to make 2009 a good New Year for ourselves.

The Chums were talking about feelings and what s the feeling of the New Year that s going to make 2009 a good year for you. You can make resolutions to try to create a better year for yourselves, but there s something quite special about creating a new feeling for the New Year.

This is what the Chums are actually talking about – a new year and a new feeling for the New Year. Most of the time when we talk about New Year s Resolutions we re talking about how we re going to act. We re going to think differently. We re going to do things differently. We re going to give up this. We re going to do this better. And so on.

But this is not about making a resolution about how to act or do something differently. This is about how to feel differently and how to have a New Year feeling for yourself for 2009.

What is the New Year feeling you are going to create for yourself that is going to make 2009 a much better year for you?

Love
You might decide that you want to focus on the feeling of love. So this is the feeling you generate within yourself. You get images, create images, that generate that loving feeling. You can think of people you love. You can think of beautiful scenes from nature that make you feel very loving and happy. So you do things to create the image, create the feeling, that brings the rise of love within you, from within that deep wellspring of love in your heart.

So this New Year of 2009 could be the year of love for you, where you focus on the feeling of love as the main feeling that you want to have more of in your life. You want to create that feeling of love for yourself, for others, for the whole world. So it can be a very expansive feeling for you.

Peace

You might want to focus on the feeling of peace. You want to feel more peaceful. You want to let go of anxiety and feel more peaceful within yourself so that your life becomes more peaceful. You want to generate more peace around you so that other people can share in your peace. If you wish to create a feeling of peace for 2009 as your New Year feeling, then you do things to create that feeling of peace within you.

So you meditate. You can sit very quietly and allow yourself to rest down into that very quiet peaceful place within you. You can put your hands on your belly and feel the peace that you have within that quiet space in your body. You can sit and meditate, or just focus on a beautiful sunset, look at a baby, look at your pet, and you can feel peaceful in so many different ways.

If this is the feeling that you want to focus on in 2009, then be thinking of ways that you can generate that feeling of peace within you, and make a decision that this is what you re going to do for yourself in 2009.

Harmony
You might want to focus on another feeling. We talked about the feeling of love. You can generate the feeling of peace. What about the feeling of harmony? Harmony is another beautiful feeling that you could be creating for yourself in 2009. Think of all the things that make you feel that life is in harmony, that people are in harmony.

When people and things are working together to create that feeling of unison and union, and togetherness and belonging, that feeling of harmony, everyone and everything benefits.

So you could be doing things to create a deeper sense of belonging in your family situation, or just people at work, to bring more harmony into every situation that you re in. You create that feeling of harmony within you. You have that intention to feel harmony and to radiate harmony wherever you are.

Initiative
You might want to create the feeling of initiative. Perhaps for the last little while you haven t been taking the initiatives that you feel you could have been taking, or you would have liked to have been taking. So 2009 could be the year where you create the feeling of initiative. How do you create a feeling of initiative?

It s a feeling of getting up and going, of taking a bit of action, of not being scared of the consequences if you decide to take a bit of a risk. It s like the Fool in the Tarot, where you step off the cliff with a smile on your face. You take the initiative. You take that step forward that you ve been wanting to take. But it is a feeling within you to begin with. There is a feeling called the feeling of initiative that you can generate, that you can create from that deep wellspring of creativity within you.

So if 2009 is the year where you want to feel initiative within you, then you have to think of ways that you can take that initiative, but you start with little steps forward often. Sometimes there are big initiatives that you can take, but if you re not used to taking initiatives it s best to start with little steps forward so that you get a feeling of movement forward, a proactive feeling within you, where you re getting things moving. And that s the feeling of initiative.

These are just a few feelings that you could be creating for yourself in 2009 as the feelings that are going to bring new life to your New Year!

    It’s interesting I should stumble upon your article about the new year. I was just thinking the last couple of days how much I am needing to focus on the feeling of peace. I am going to join some sort of meditation group because I know if I try to do this alone, I will likely not succeed. I need to be in a class with other people with a similar goal. Your article has inspired me to take the next step – to seek out a class in meditation. Thanks for your insight. Happy New Year to you!

    I like the putting a new focus on the new year. This article has inspired me to look at what I want to accomplish in the way of my feelings in 2009. I believe by putting the focus on my feelings, that the resolutions will follow. By focusing my feelings on love, my marriage relationship and others will benefit and blossom. By working on the feelings of peace and harmony, my time spent in meditation and prayer will prosper. I just love the advice of succeeding in the big initiatives is best servce by taking smaller initiative steps. Thank you for put a new twist on an old habit for me (making new year’s resolutions). Best wishes for success in 2009!
