2013 – The Year of Conscious Creation

A New Dawn

So what sort of feeling do you have about 2013? You would be forgiven for thinking: “How am I supposed to know?” But as intuitive beings, we most definitely can get a feeling for things that have not yet happened to us. You might not think of yourself as an intuitive person, but let me assure you that you are. We all are. You can read more about that here.

I’ve been wondering for some time now about 2013 and what I feel around it, so here is how I see it.

2013 certainly feels new and different in an interesting and dynamic kind of way that the preceding years, even 2012, haven’t. It definitely feels as though the old has dropped away, and I feel as though I’ve shed my skin and I’m stepping out of any residual conformity and into originality – the originality of Who I Really Am –   which goes hand-in-hand with transparency.

Because this is what we have to do to be transparent. Being transparent is laying ourselves bare, and this seems an extremely scary thing to do. I learnt this when I was climbing Everest, because when you are pushed to the limits as I was then, there is no room for the ego, there is no room to be anything other than who you really are. You can’t pretend you’re stronger or better than you are, you can’t hide from yourself. To climb Everest I really did have to let the facade drop, let the guard down and it wasn’t easy to completely let it all go.

In fact that was probably the hardest part of climbing the mountain. But once I had done all that, once I had let go of all resistance and pretence of being anything other than who I really was, then climbing to the summit was almost easy in comparison. Equally I also know that, if I hadn’t let go and ‘given in’ to just being me, then I wouldn’t have got to the summit. I would have been one of those many people who found an excuse to give up and go home because keeping up the pretence was too difficult, but they couldn’t face ‘revealing’ themselves – which is what they would have had to  do if they had stayed, in order to reach the top.

We make life difficult for ourselves, by resisting ourselves. But once you become transparent, authentic and unbound from all ties that are holding you back – then, there is nothing in the way any more of everything you desire coming to you. That is how I climbed Everest. Acceptance of who you are is the doorway you have been looking for. Therein lies the key to living the life you were born to lead – walk through the doorway and you will find everything you desire is on the other side.

2013 is the Year of Conscious Creation. It is the year that you consciously create YOU – the person you were born to be. What are you choosing to create? When we choose something, we are consciously creating. We are making a decision. And that is setting a powerful Intention. So what are YOU choosing for 2013…?

Yesterday I sat down and created a different sort of list of what I am choosing for 2013. I’m going to share this with you in my next article. In the meantime if you have any questions for me about things you have going on in your life that you need help with, you can send me an email, just click here. And if you want to get more in touch with your intuition, you get a free meditation download “A Journey Within To Meet Your Inner Guide”   when you sign up for my free Intuitive Tips. You can do that here.

So…what ARE you choosing for 2013? Let me know, I’d love to hear from you.

About the Author

I’ve been single, married, divorced and widowed. I’ve been a teacher, a translator, worked in business and now have my own company… I’ve sailed the Atlantic Ocean and I have climbed Mount Everest. I know! It sounds crazy but it’s true. I said I’d done it and I have, pretty much literally DONE it! I’ve plumbed the depths and scaled the heights in every sense of those words.

And I absolutely know that it was listening to, trusting and following my intuition that got me to where I am today. It got me out of the dark tunnel I was in after my husband died, and not only led me to the summit of Mount Everest, but to many other magical experiences too, like sailing the Atlantic Ocean in a small boat. I was the first British woman to have accomplished both of those things, and only the fifth British woman to stand on the summit of the highest mountain on the planet.
