Most New Year’s Resolutions focus on gaining external results such as making more money, getting into a relationship, losing weight or finding a new job…However, have you ever considered an internal New Year’s Resolution?
In her new book, The 21-Day Consciousness Cleanse: A Breakthrough Program for Connecting with Your Soul’s Deepest Purpose (Harper One), NY Times best-selling author Debbie Ford offers a practical three week program to detoxify your heart, mind and soul.
According to Ford, “Most New Year’s Resolutions don’t work because if we don’t cleanse out the toxic emotions and experiences from our past and get honest about the present we will be stuck with the same old thoughts, patterns and regrets and end up with the same results.” She goes into more detail by adding, “This program will enable you to take back your power from the outer world, turn inward, and embark on the journey of reconnecting with the spirit that moves you.”
Ford’s book walks you through a profound 3 part process which includes simple daily exercises, cleansing rituals and prayers — ranging from simple tasks to deeply, spiritual inquiries. For example, on Day 16 which is titled, The Light of God’s Will, Ford writes:
“God’s will can become your internal reference point from this day forward; it is your choice –God’s will or your ego’s will…Are you going to take a chance on a power that can open up new opportunities where there have been none…or will you stay stuck where you are? You have to decide…This is a turning point like no other.”
The 21 Day Consciousness Cleanse uncovers the inner source that lifts us out of resignation and mediocrity into hope, excitement and future filled with surprises, possibility and deep purpose.
