Beloved Spiritual Family:

When I lived in Hawai’i, one of the traditions I loved was that people would run around town on the last days of December and pay all their bills – in cash!

What a delightful tradition – to start the new year fresh and debt-free. Not only is it a good idea financially, it is a good idea emotionally & mentally. Create some sacred time and space to look through your spiritual bank accounts. Who do you owe? Who does not have safe passage through your mind? A family member, an ex, yourself? What are you holding on to that is no longer serving you?

I find that forgiveness is the best way to pay off my debts. There are so many tools to help us with our forgiveness processes. One of my favorites is the online tutorial at (click on “free online tools” then on “RF

Worksheet Tutorial”)

Colin Tipping, author of Radical Forgiveness, writes “Radical Forgiveness is much more then the mere letting go of the past. It is the key to creating the life that we want, and the world that we want. It is the key to our own happiness and the key to world peace. It is no longer an option. It is our destiny.”

If we walk into 2006 with the baggage of 2005, the same consciousness that created that baggage will create even more. And who wants to do that?!?

If you’re like me, you’re looking forward to even greater good in your life next year. Yet all the spiritual work we could possibly do to create that good, will not help us unless we let go of the old. It’s like trying to put new wine into old wine skins.

Join me in creating this sacred tradition before the year ends. As you wake up January 1st, 2006, feel the freedom, be grateful you left your baggage behind, set some intentions and get ready to fly!!

Grateful blessings, Rev. Angelica


Divine Love is the Source of all. It fills every corner of this universe, because It is this universe. Every cell and atom is the energy of Love made manifest. This energy is within me. I am made of Divine Love. I am the expression of Divine Love. Therefore it is easy for me to forgive. For those who practice Divine Love all is forgiven.

Today I choose to let Divine Love move through me, clearing all my emotional baggage. I allow myself to forgive and let go. Any thing I have held against anyone, including myself, is now released. I feel myself becoming lighter. I feel the freedom of letting go. I am forgiven of my debts as I forgive my debtors and this is good, very good.

I also let go of any thoughts that no longer serve me, or have kept me stuck in behaviors that are not for my highest and best good. I fill my mind with thoughts of Divine Love, and all Its aspects, knowing their expression is my intention for the new year.

I am ready. I have a clear mind and a pure heart. I step into 2006 as the Divine Being that I am, unfettered by the past. With a heart full of gratitude, I release these words, knowing they are done. And so it is.
