Things felt tight last year? Of course! You have been preparing to shed. It made your vision cloudy, too. Aren’t you glad it’s time to peel back the resistance and display your new radiance? You’ve grown and you’re ready to share what you’ve learned. Yes, you already know enough to achieve that dream. Yes, it’s the right year. Yes, you’re ready. You wouldn’t be reading this if you weren’t. I’m magic, that way. It isn’t possible to find me before you’re ready. Happy New Year—Your Year!

Thank you, Millie Alford, for this Scottsdale, AZ sunset.

Sunset is my favorite time of day—a reminder to pause, enjoy my Arizona sky (Where else would dust be spectacular!), connect with the source of it all, reflect on that day’s blessings (at least in gratitude for surviving that one), and seek guidance for the next phase of my journey. It’s like a mini New Year’s Eve. So today, I wish you a beautiful sunset on your 2012 and an even better dawn for your 2013.
