Happy New Year

BY Parvati

Happy New Year! I hope that your 2016 is off to a wonderfully rooted, vital and expansive start.
As you turn your attention towards the year ahead, you may have heartfelt dreams and intentions for what this year could bring. Perhaps lists are already made full of your New Year’s resolutions and you begin with high hopes that this year will be better than the last.
As you take your first steps in this new year, you need to feel confident in the wisdom of your goals and in your ability to remain true to the milestones you have set out for yourself.
Last year at this time, I shared here a two part post on how to successfully follow through on goals set for the New Year. If you missed it last year, please enjoy the useful tips on How to Succeed at Your New Year’s Resolution Part 1 and Part 2.
It is going to be another big year for me and for all of the team here. This year will see the release of my new music and music videos as well as touring shows and workshops. I am thrilled to share this body of heartfelt work with you soon! In addition, we have been busy creating lots of inspirational content which will start rolling out on early in the New Year! Stay tuned for free YEM yoga classes, meditation instruction, conscious living videos, behind the scenes music clips, news, a free e-course and more!
To kick things off, the January 2016 issue of Parvati Magazine is now live. Please click through and enjoy the wise offerings by fabulous leaders in their field, such as the international best-selling author and medical doctor Bernie Siegel and gold medal Olympian Clara Hughes. May this issue on the theme of “Wisdom” serve to support a year in which you feel loved, supported and fulfilled.
It is my deep belief that the universe loves us all equally in ways we cannot truly comprehend. As we step forward rooted in the knowing that our truest joy is the universe’s joy, possibilities open up to us in ways unimaginable.
In my meditation article in this month’s issue, I share about the power of challenging your limiting beliefs, so that you may experience a fulfilling year ahead:
When you see painful thoughts thwart your heart’s joy, draw upon an age-old key truth on the path to freedom. Know that when you believe that life is happening “to” you, you are in your ego. As though under a spell, you are temporarily attached to a passing perception, generated by your ego, which only knows to divide. In that moment, you are seeing life through a limited, distorted lens.
The ego is both attached and tricky. But it has its own Achilles heel. It dissolves when questioned and witnessed. Willingness to grow involves the courage to question the reality of the painful voices that keep you feeling small. Ultimately, you need to fully understand that they are not true.
The easiest way to do this is to ask yourself straightforwardly, “Is this thought or perception true?”

May 2016 be your best year yet.
Until next time,
Love yourself.
Love others.
Love our world.
We are ONE Earth family.
