Our thoughts, our words, our actions and our surroundings (people, environment, sound, visual, textile, etc.) correlate with our state of being. Therefore, we must think, speak, act and choose surroundings that generate the state of being we want to experience. For example, being peaceful is my highest state of being. Right after I woke up today, I meditated for thirty minutes, chanted "om" for eleven minutes and stretched. Then I made a mental list of positive aspects of myself and life and a mental list of people, places and things I am thankful for being a part of my experience. (I continued to think and speak positively by focusing on positive side of everyone and everything and acknowledging my appreciation of everyone and everything I interacted with throughout the day.)
Now that 2011 is coming into completion, it is important to reflect on the lessons you've learned and the insights you've gained. It is also important to recall positive aspects of 2011 and cultivate appreciation for those positive aspects you have experienced. Next, quiet your mind and your heart by taking a few deep breaths in through your nose and mouth and ask yourself who you want to be, what you want to do and what you to have (or experience) in your life, in your individual reality. Visualize and feel like you already have them.
