Every year I make a list of wishes, goals or plans (what I call them varies) for the year ahead and at the end of every year I review the list and see how many have happened. I don’t look at them in between, I just go ahead with my year and by the end I have usually forgotten much of the detail that was in my list.
However, I’ve been interested to see that over the past few years I consistently achieve at least 50 percent of the things and can tick them off my list. There doesn’t seem to be any kind of pattern to explain which things happen and which don’t – some are big things, some are little things, some are vague and big picture, and some are detailed and specific.
Roughly half of each materialise, with no particular conscious effort or action on my part. I write them at the start of my year and then set them aside and forget about them until reviewing them at the end of my year.
My notion is that these Intentions are kept in mind out of my conscious awareness and move forward positively in interaction with the streams of energy, people and possibilities in the world around me. Everything always works out for my best possible good (as is always my stated Intention), and so some of the things that didn’t happen by the end of the year are things that would not have been good for me. Perhaps as I found out more about them, or as other things unfolded, I decided against these paths and so they did not happen. However at other times, perhaps it just wasn’t very important whether they happened or not – I put some things on the list just as fun ideas or possibilities to place on the table.
And so each year unfolds with its challenges, low points and high points and always it is a wonderful Adventure. There is a feeling of being part of a greater Flow, a current of energy containing magic and mystery – I love it!
