It’s usual and traditional for any new year to be the time you kickstart a new phase in life.

Usually a time to make new year’s resolutions.

The problem is…I don’t believe in them and most people can’t keep them!

So let’s think of the new year not as a time for making resolutions, but as a time for saying goodbye to who we were and saying hello to who we are becoming.

And I’m going to share everything you need to know to guarantee the creation of a year filled with love, joy health, prosperity and anything else you desire.

One more thing.  You have to practice to make these principles work. 

Did I forget to mention that?  My bad.  But you know what they say about free lunches! 🙂

So here’s everything you need to know to make this new year epic.

1. The hidden cause of all things

There’s one simple thought to really get fixed in your mind.  Imagination creates reality.

The first time I heard this, I was about to make a four hour drive and I used the whole time to ponder this idea.

If this surprises you, let me tell you, it surprised me too!  And now I look at four hour drives with new eyes…an opportunity to totally change my world.

Because I did myself a favour on this one, it became pretty easy for my new awareness to become so much a part of me that I stopped entirely (ok mostly) mentally blaming anyone or any circumstances that occurred in my life.

And I say to you, give yourself time to contemplate the idea that your imagination is the hidden cause of all things.  It could change your world too.

Whatever you desire, believe you have already received it, is the way the Bible puts it.

2. Feelings are orders

Your subconscious mind is the power within that produces an energetic match from the invisible to the visible world.  Any thought that isn’t felt produces nothing.  But those thoughts that create feelings are reproduced in our life experiences.

Catch a thought connected to anger, doubt, fear or joy, contentment, excitement and you will know exactly what is about to happen in your world, unless you can stop the thought and switch it.

Your feelings are what spur you to take action.  You might think a lot of things without too much feeling attached.  But those thoughts that are deeply felt will have your subconscious mind pushing you into action.

3. Name it and claim it

To say I am going to, or I will be, isn’t a powerful way to manifest the life experiences you desire.  You must name and claim what you want, as I AM happy, healthy, successful or prosperous.

Claim everything as though it were here now.  Remember your imagination is the hidden cause of creation.

Forget trying to change the outer world before taking a look at what is going on within, and change that.  It’s the only way my darlings that you can build and maintain the life you want to live.

4. Assumptions

How many times have you assumed something will happen, even when it isn’t something you want?

And more to the point there’s no evidence to support it.  Oh wait…maybe it’s something you’ve experienced in the past, so of course it’ll happen again.  Nope.  Not so much.

Unless of course you keep assuming that very thing. That once something happened it’s sure to repeat itself!

Truth be told the laws of creation are to be found in the higher realms of the universe and are totally dependable when they are activated and sustained.  And this is true whether we have little or no conscious awareness of this process.

You and me both have believed our present circumstances into being…consciously or unconsciously.

Think of assumptions as acts of faith, that if persisted in, become the facts of our life and you won’t go far wrong.

So start assuming the best, as part of everything you need to know to make this year epic.

5. Be a doer

Don’t just read or hear these principles, do the principles.  Work the principles.

As a doer you will become more aware that it’s your imagination that creates reality. That your feelings are the orders to your subconscious to change your actions to bring about new experiences.

And begin your quest to claim victory on absolutely every front. Claim you can make this year epic.

Just focus on the first step and start right now by claiming and assuming you are the one you want to be and the one who has what they want to have.

Then one day when you look back at how far you’ve come you’ll find there was a kind of magic in taking your mind to where you wanted it to go, instead of just going along for the ride.

6. Forget the how

It’s easy for others who aren’t practicing these principles to find fault, or to criticize – that’s easily solved.  Don’t tell them.

And don’t let others get to you by asking how you expect every desire of your heart to be met.  You don’t have to know how…it’s not your job.

Everything that needs to be done, everyone who needs to show up to help or encourage are built into your desires.

And these desires are gifts to support your growth and expansion.  It’s the way of the Universe.  So stop letting the ‘how’ of things get in your way.

Once you have assumed and continue to live in the assumption that things are as you desire them to be, the actions you take will stem from that assumption and your world will be re-arranged to fulfill it.

How cool is that.  The easy part is yours. 

And that’s it…that’s everything you need to know to make this year epic.

Open yourself up to the wonders available to you and decide to keep your attention on all that’s good in your life, be patient, and live in the moment.

It’s all worthwhile.


Encourage one another.

  1. Great suggestions, here, Elle to get 2019 off to a good start. Thank you for the inspiration. I wish you all the best in 2019.

  2. Very good advice, Elle.

    I agree that we create our realities with our minds. I don’t believe that we can magically alter real circumstances, but I do know that we determine our experience of anything with our thoughts about it. Whether something is “good” or “bad” depends on how we label it.

    I always tell my son, “You create your future with the things you do today.”

    Thank you for this invigorating post!

    • I think what we can do Debbie rather than magically alter circumstances is change the energy of them and that allows that new energy to move into our future with us, instead of the old, perhaps less positive vibration. 🙂
