"Like the air you breathe, abundance in all things is available to you. Your life will simply be as good as you allow it to be." - Abraham Hicks
My word for 2019 is (drum roll please) "ALLOW!"
It took me a while, and I tried on a few words. I even announced my word to family and friends - and changed it.
And declared it again - and changed it. And I'm announcing it again, friends! And guess what, I'm not changing a thing this time because it feels so right. It fits!
ALLOW. Allow health. Allow love. Allow abundance. Allow flow. Allow imperfection. Allow sadness, joy, fear, doubt, happiness, etc. The full spectrum!
The day I chose my word my in-laws took our son for the night. I was so excited because Jason and I were going to go out on a much-needed date and guess what. Mama was tired. There was a moment when I thought I could push through and then I thought of my word - ALLOW. I also had some work to do (as always), but I decided to allow myself to lay down for a nap. Well, that 4pm nap turned into a 12-hour sleep and no date (sorry honey), but the next day I felt AMAZING. Apparently, I needed it and so glad I listened.
Ok, so that's one example of "ALLOW."
This word is also important to me right now because I know that I've been resisting some things coming into my life because of my mindset. You might know it - it's a scarcity mindset where your actions and thoughts stem from a place of lack. Now I wasn't doing it in all areas of my life - but even if I'm doing it in one area that's enough to make a change!
It's time to sit back, be patient, trust and have faith that what I want to manifest, create and experience will show up - in the right time. I'm letting go of control (it doesn't mean I'm giving up the work!), and resistance (caused by my own fear and doubt). I also ALLOW you to be you and I'm not going to let that have anything to do with me and my worth.
So, in a nutshell, I'm ready to manifest with ease and recognize my emotions, feelings, wants and needs without guilt and the shoulds. Accept things and people as they are and trust everything is working out the way it's supposed to!
And finally, allow myself to receive all the gifts and blessings coming my way with peace and gratitude. It’s an art!
