Begin Anew

So good to see you here again!

Over the past few days I have asked you to

Practice the Presence of God

.

I have asked you to become

{familiar with}

the

Divine Presence

that is nearer than hands & feet

.

This

practice

is one that must become

{second nature}

 to

you

.

This

practice

is one that connects you with the

ONLY ONE

who

possesses

 the

Power to Provide

all that is needed

to

Begin

Anew

.

Without putting this practice in place

nothing will change

.

If more time is needed to experience this transformational presence,

please, I encourage you to do so.

But if you are feeling a new calmness of your soul.

If you are experiencing a quiet

{heretofore unknown}

then you are awakening to the

inherent divine natural state

within us all

&

I invite you to take the next step upon this

Soul Journey

.

The next step begins with contemplation

&

ends with

a

declaration

!

Let us now take the time

to

recognize

 our purpose

for

beginning anew

.

When I offered a series similar to this last Fall

the

word

0105131209a

kept coming to me

&

 did so again last night.

Consider, if you will, these definitions :

a} to make a firm decision about my life

b} to change or transform

c} to clear up or deal with a problem or situation

{or life – my words}

successfully

d} to dispel any doubts

How perfect are these definitions for describing

 our purpose

to

Begin Anew

?

I remember asking you on Day One if you felt that this year

was destined to look differently than any year had before

.

I am believing that your response was yes.

That is why you are here today.

But,

how does this {different year} come about

?

In my opinion,

only through the personal

0105131209a

to

CHANGE

.

Nothing would please me

&

I

believe

God

more,

 than for you to realize this change in the New Year.

There is

power

 in

the

spoken

&

written

word

&

I

invite you

to

 consciously

speak

&

write

your intent for participating in this

Souljourney

.

Delve into these questions:

What doubts do I desire to dispel?

What problem or situation in my life do I desire to change?

What is the firm decision  I choose to make regarding my life?

After journaling about this

 write a letter of declaration to yourself

then

read it

OUT LOUD

.

This declaration may be used throughout the next few weeks

{ purposely }

to keep the intent

of

Beginning Anew

ever-present in your heart

.

I would like to share my letter of declaration with you for reference:

Dear Paula.

It is with joy that I begin to spiritually resolve my life.

That I choose to

Begin Anew

.

I make this 21 day commitment with great expectations.

I know that as I put my heart into this daily practice,

I will see change in my life,

in turn,

change in others lives who are near and dear to me.

I recognize that this change can only come about

as

I

consciously

0105131209a

to become

One with the One

who is ever-present within me.

I commit to this personal relationship with God.

The One Source. The One Provider of All.

I am thankful.

And so it is.

***

Your letter may read entirely different from mine.

Again, that’s okay.

You

&

God

alone

know what is best for you

.

 May this

act of commitment

{filled with possibilities}

  propel

 you forward

as

you

Begin

Anew

.

There are no short cuts, Souljourner.

Each step offered is a step forward.

Here, as always,

to

encourage

you

onward

.

To

encourage you to

Begin

Anew

.

En+Joy

En+Grace

Paula.
