The ellipsis in the subject line is the most important part. It holds more answers than I have to offer tonight. I had great plans to post something uber spiritual and enlightened. But the truth is all I have tonight is an intention to take with me into the new year only that which serves me and the Creator who stitched me so perfectly together.
I intend forgiveness. I intend acceptance. I intend surrender. I intend abundance. As Mark Nepo stated so beautifully in The Book of Awakening, I intend to unlearn my way back to God. I release all pretenses, illusions and expectations as the shoulds, coulds and woulds of a time long gone. I forgive everyone everything. And I accept the divine unfolding of my life one precious moment at a time. That is enough. That, says the Whisper, is all there is. Happy New YOU!

WITW Lesson #1 12/27/11:Reinvention isn’t about changing who you are but (re)discovering the person you were created to be! It’s about dwelling in the moment, in “the zone”, where you unconsciously and consistently achieve your desired results with the highest level of proficiency.
Today I listened to Simran Singh’s interview of Steve Olsher “Reinventing YOU in 2012″ on 11:11 Talk Radio and it was just what I needed to hear. Of course, there are no accidents in life so I’m not surprised. I just continue to be thrilled and in awe of Spirit’s ability, desire and willingness to manifest for me what I require and desire when I ask with an open heart and loving expectancy.
The Wisdom Lesson above is my paraphrasing of my overall away from Simran’s interview with Steve.
Steve Olsher is known as America’s Reinvention Expert. He wrote award-winning book Journey to You and created the Reinvention Workshop that provides a step-by-step guide to reach and maintain excellence in every aspect of your life. He walks the walk and has devoted his life’s work to showing others how to do the same. He subscribes to the belief that it’s better to empower others to succeed than to give the people the proverbial fish.

“When I first heard this quote it hit me like a runaway train. Bam! I never saw the lesson coming but when I heard it, the sentiment resonated deeply within me.
Despite being the “SHINE” contributor, quiet as it’s kept my light isn’t always blinding. Sometimes when life and circumstances cast a shadow over me, even I struggle to find my light.
They say when the student is ready the teacher appears. Today, this quote was my teacher.
A “less than luminous” state can really get to you when you know intellectually about a higher spiritual path and seek to “walk the walk” and use your life as an example for others. The truth is, however, spiritual enlightenment doesn’t immune you from the realities of having a very human experience as a result of the hurt, loss and suffering that come with living sometimes.”
