I love New Year’s Day because I get to give myself permission to Start Again on anything I choose.  It feels exciting and liberating.

What do you need to
Start Again this New Year?

I’m going to start writing my gratitude list every day… again!  If you asked people who knew me well, they would say I’m an extremely grateful person.  They would even say I’m generous when expressing it.  But it’s not enough…  I want to feel inspired (again) to write my gratitude list every day.

Doesn’t it feel exciting to be given the chance to Start Again?  One of the reasons people like the beginning of the New Year is that it gives them the opportunity to wipe the slate clean and get a new start.  I even like Mondays for that reason… they feel forgiving to me!

I know all about the feeling and philosophy regarding gratitude – its power, how it feels, how it inspires others, how it attracts abundance.  Yet I still haven’t been writing my gratitude list every single day.  I simply fell off the wagon.  Writing the list is not a big time commitment, it is not a hassle, and I’ve experienced the positive results so many times I’ve lost count, yet I still “forget” or don’t get around to it.

So, what’s up with that?  It’s called basic resistance.  Resistance is anything that gets in your way of alignment with success, abundance and joy. Resistance could be represented by a feeling of irritation, resentment, guilt, fear or stress.  Resistance could be the need to get your point across, or pushing against people who have different ideas.  In this case, my resistance is showing up as an erratic, even sloppy commitment to my gratitude list.  When I asked myself the upside/ downside questions, I realized that I have some resistance to being even more successful than I already am.

Sure, it’s true that I’m an extremely busy person, and have been able to attract extraordinary abundance into my life already.  But these are not excuses to stop doing my gratitude list – after all, writing my gratitude list is one of the reasons I am where I am today!

If you are serious about wanting to attract abundance into your life, you need to give yourself permission to Start Again.  Whether you need to re-commit to your tapping, your visualizations, your energy exercises, meditating or writing your gratitude list, choose what you would like to Start Again in this new year.  And then start doing it right now, today.

Now you need to make a plan, or else it won’t get done.  Here’s my simple plan that will mean the difference between doing it or not:

1. Keep my gratitude journal in an easily accessible place

2. Choose the time of day I plan to write

3. Clear any blocks I have to Starting Again (tap, tap, tap…)

4. Don’t go to bed without writing my gratitude list!

Remember that our thoughts are real
and carry energy…

Our vibration matters!

When your vibration is all about gratitude, you will start to see physical and material abundance move into your life.  If your vibration is one of fear or resistance, the Law of Attraction will prevent abundance from coming into your life because the vibrations don’t “match.”

Remember that the Universe hears your vibration not your words.  The principles of the Law of Attraction remind us that we will receive more of what we are “broadcasting” to the Universe when we are in alignment with it.  What always precedes abundance showing up in your life is a high vibration – one of optimism, joy, gratitude or appreciation.  When the Universe is able to receive a clear signal or message from you – (no energetic interference from your attitudes) then the Law of Attraction starts to work in your favor.

Below you will find EFT setup phrases to help you be inspired to release your blocks to being able to attract what you want into your life.

When you change your vibration,
you will change your life.

Go ahead, raise your vibration
by choosing to Start Again!



The EFT SETUP Phrases for this topic are as follows:

While tapping the karate chop spot on either hand, repeat these phrases out loud, (or change the words to fit your exact situation).

“Even though I’ve been resistant and need to Start Again, I deeply and completely love and accept myself anyway.”

“Even though I’ve been resistant and want to Start Again, I choose to feel inspired every day.”

“Even though I haven’t felt inspired to write my gratitude list, I deeply and completely forgive and accept myself anyway.”

I have indicated where to tap while saying each of the phrases below. You may repeat the positive round more than once if you wish. (If you are new to EFT please view a chart of the spots on my web site under the EFT pages.)
