Do New Year’s Resolutions do more Harm than Good?

I was giving a Psychic Reading to a lovely lady today, when the subject of New Year’s Resolutions came up.

I have to admit that I’ve never been a huge fan of them, because the energy always feels so heavy and dare I say…boring? Any time I’ve tried to write a list (let alone stick to one) I find myself feeling pretty crappy and my enthusiasm seems to go out of the window very fast.

What are New Year’s Resolutions anyway and how do they help our lives to be better? Because as far as I can tell, people often to use them in ways that don’t seem to help at all.

Far too often I’ve seen those around me sternly making themselves a list of Resolutions that looked more like a “things I hate about myself” list than a loving plan of how they were going to learn to love themselves more and bring joy to the world.

Writing a list of resolutions  that makes you feel bad or lacking is a sure fire way to produce more of those hopeless feelings later down the line.

Surely the point of the New Year, if we are going to make it into a landmark of ‘out with the old and in with the new’ should be a positive one?

So I’d like to make a new suggestion for this year – try writing yourself a magical wish list for 2017!


Dream about what would make your life wonderful instead of beating yourself up about all the things you don’t like, and you’ll find that the energy around the exercise will shift 180 degrees!

Fun and joyful energy will help to manifest wonderful things and together we can find new, fun and inventive ways to bring more joy, more abundance and much needed happiness to our lives and to the lives of those around us.
