I don’t like New Year’s resolutions. I quit making them years ago.

For one thing, if stuff shows up throughout the year that I don’t like, I “resolve” right then and there to put support systems in place to change it. I don’t wait until New Year’s.

Second, for me they carry with them the energy of something I don’t really want to do! I’m not one to do anything I don’t want to. I mean let’s face it, if you really wanted to do it, wouldn’t you have already done it? Why would you need a New Year’s resolution to make you do it?

“But Debra”, I can hear you say, “I really DO want to ______ (you fill in the blank)!”

Great! Let’s acknowledge one thing, resolutions are usually about creating some sort of shift or change in your life (and they are separate and apart from goals). Real change or transformation comes from being able to energetically connect with what you want to create. The way we do that, is through our emotions.

Create a vision of what you want to create that you can get really emotionally excited about!

When you read a resolution that says “I’m going to lose 20 pounds by March.” how does it make you feel? Did you notice heaviness in the pit of your stomach?

What if instead it said “I am on my way to losing 20 pounds and already I have more energy and my pants are getting looser!”?

Notice the difference? WOW! I don’t even have a desire to lose 20 pounds and it still feels really good!

That is an example of a mantra or an affirmation. It is a tool you can use to create any kind of change you want for yourself. And if you use visualization in combination with reading or reciting the mantra on a daily basis, you have a powerful tool to actually, finally, lose that 20 pounds.

One other thing I want to point out, notice how I used the words “I am on my way to losing…” vs. “I have lost…”. That is an example of what Abraham-Hicks refers to as a “bridge” and it is an important element.

It’s a little trick we play with our brain. Since we haven’t lost the weight yet, to state it as if we have can create some resistance; you know, that little voice in your head that says “No you haven’t!”

So in summary, here are the main important elements:

  1. Make them specific but emotionally exciting
  2. Use a bridge
  3. Visualize, I mean really see and feel how your life is going to be different
  4. Write them down and put them where you can see them daily (mine are on the bathroom mirror, my calendar and my journal)
  5. Recite them daily to yourself out loud or silently but with emotion!
