I know how challenging it can be to get motivated and put yourself out there, but together with the help of those in spirit, I created a divine checklist to make this year better than you could ever imagine. You have complete control over your destiny and future happiness, and as your medium friend, I can tell you that each step you take forward, Heaven and your loved ones will be there to help you and lift you up every step of the way. Here are some of the things you can start working on to bring yourself into a new energy space and manifest positive things.

Step One: Let Any Negativity that Caused You Stress In Past Years Stay There!

Negativity can drain you and make you feel like you are sinking, but only if you let it! When you say enough is enough, and make the decision to release the pressure and heaviness that you have been feeling, it can no longer control you. Leave the negativity behind and decide that whatever was on your mind and caused you to stress will no longer be able to enter into your life. Instead, focus on inviting in the new; replace every negative thought or challenge with something or someone more positive who will bring you joy and compliment your life.

Step Two: Surround Yourself with Family and Friends that Bring You Happiness.

Is there someone you have been meaning to contact or reconnect with, but you keep putting it off? Make them part of your life by giving them a call and reconnecting. The people who you reach out to now and connect with will remain connected to you throughout this next year. If nobody comes to mind that you want to reconnect with, focus on creating new friends and relationships within your life. Life is so much more fun when you have people around with whom you can create memories and enjoy life. Sometimes it can feel uncomfortable at first to step out of your comfort zone and meet new people, but when you do you will love the experiences and friends you make and enjoy along the way.

Step Three: Set the Goals You Want to Achieve (Serious Ones This Time)

I know that in the past you may have made a goal and never had the opportunity to complete it. This year you’re not going to let that happen. To ensure that you stick to your goal and manifest it, take out your calendar and write in your goal every week. This works best if you write your goal in the beginning of the week, such as on Monday. Now your goal is part of your daily schedule, and you will be reminded each week to work towards it. At the end of the week, write down what steps you took towards accomplishing your goal. At the end of the year, when you look back at your calendar, you will see all of the progress that you have made. Pretty Cool right??

Step Four: Never Take No as an Answer

Just because a road block might be in your path, it does not mean you need to slow down. You can accomplish anything that you set your mind to. Know that heaven has created a plan for you to follow, and will lead you to success if you’re willing to take steps too. If something does not work out do not give up, because the timing may just be off. Instead take a moment to pause, look around you, and pursue another opportunity. Some things in life fall apart so that others can fall together in a better way. Just because the answer is no doesn’t mean that there is not a better opportunity for you to discover. Heaven will always lead you to the path that will benefit your highest and best good. Trust where they are leading you.

Step Five: It’s O.K to Put Yourself First Once in a While

How many times have you said that you wish you had just one day to yourself where you didn’t have to worry about anyone else? Make that a reality this year by planning one day a month to take a personal day for yourself. On this day don’t do anything that involves work, bills, or chores. Instead, focus on just relaxing and freeing your mind from all the everyday stress that has been accumulating. You can do anything on this day that will help you to relax and get back in touch with your soul. Days like this will help you to recharge your energy, and help you to balance the overload that you have been feeling.

Step Six: Re-Discover Your Spirituality

Have you wanted to feel more spiritually ‘In – Tune’ or connected with your Angels and loved ones in Spirit? Start by waking up each morning and saying hello to your Angels and Loved ones in Spirit. Just waking up and saying hello allows your loved ones and Angels to know that you are acknowledging their presence, and that you are open to receiving messages from them. This will allow them to reach you, and will also allow you to feel their presence each day and be reminded that they are by your side.

Step Seven: Open Yourself up to Change

With each day that passes new things begin to change and take place within your life. I know that sometimes change can bring fear of the ‘unknown’, but only if you let it. The most amazing thing about life is that it is an amazing journey that will guide you to new people, doors, and experiences. Enjoy where you are being led, and know that with each change you are learning, growing, and expanding yourself.

Step Eight: Forgive All Those Who Have Hurt You

Even if it was not your fault, forgive all of those who have hurt or disappointed you in the past. Forgiveness is the greatest gift that you can give to yourself at any time. When you forgive someone, you let go of all the negative energy that you have been carrying around with you. The moment that you let go and forgive, you lighten the energy around you and allow more positive energy to enter into that space.

Step Nine: Enjoy the Simple Things

The things that make life great are often times the simplest things. Take some time this year to appreciate and enjoy the simple things in life. Reconnect with nature, be silly, be goofy, but most of all be you. So many times, life forces us to be serious; instead spend time reconnecting and discovering what makes you laugh.

Step 10: Let Down Your Walls

The only way people can help you and become part of your life is if you let down your walls and allow them in. I know that this may be a hard step for you, especially if you have been hurt in the past, BUT I can guarantee that when you let down you guard, and allow new people to enter, you will be glad you did. Every person that enters your life is meant for you to meet them for a divine reason. They may teach you something, provide support, or just be someone for you to talk to, but know that they are meant to be part of your life’s journey. Life is best enjoyed when you stop questioning, let down your guard, and embrace and enjoy life!

I hope that these steps will help you create a year that is filled with positivity, excitement, love & light. I know that Heaven will be with you and help you to manifest all of these things.
