Many people go about life in a haze of unconscious behaviour they have been entrained into since childhood: get up, go to work, get paid, go to sleep, rinse and repeat. Among all of this we fall in love, buy houses, have children, pay bills, go to the beach and myriad other things that make up our lives, but how many of us are truly happy and deeply fulfilled?
Now, it’s true that some people don’t question this. They just put one foot after the other and live in a glorious haze of unconsciousness until they die. Yet some of us seek something greater. We know deep down that we are here to serve others and make a difference in the world in our own unique way – whether we know what looks like or not.
I speak with many people who have this inner desire but don’t know how to bring that desire out and make it flourish. They doubt their abilities and knowledge. They find excuses to prevent themselves taking that first step, saying things like: I need a degree for that, I don’t have enough money to get started, I need to have a proper job to pay the bills and so on. There are others who procrastinate and distract themselves by being too busy with other things, continually starting something but never finishing it, or putting others before their own needs.
One of the simplest ways I have found to help people start making this transition into creating the life they desire from where they are now, without the overwhelm and panic that is sometimes associated with change is this:
Start putting YOU into what you do.
What does that mean? It means to start being mindful of everything you do each day – whether you are washing dishes, going to a job you hate, raising children or trying to find work. Slow down, become more conscious of your actions and the energy you BE in each moment.
You are an Infinite Being. You have choice about how you go about your life. If the big changes are too daunting right now just focus on BEING YOU and as you do that you are adding your unique energy to every part of your life. You will be amazed at how much this shifts your energy and starts to attract more magic into your life.
Try this now:
- Take some slow deep breaths into your belly. Acknowledge that you are here in this reality, that you are present and willing to be YOU as much as possible throughout this day.
- Expand your energy out to really get a sense of you, the Infinite Being. Feel your connection to all things and the vastness of who you really are.
- Lower all your barriers, all the doubts and fears, judgements and expectations, all the resistance and reactions, just let it all drop away.
- Ask: Universe, show me some magic and new possibilities today.
Start every day with this small practice and then revisit it as often as possible throughout the day – as you prepare breakfast, pay bills, drive to work, interact with others, clean the house, and so on. It’s so simple you can do it anywhere.
As you start to slow down and become more aware you come to see that everything you do is a choice, and even if you are doing something you don’t like right now, HOW you approach what you do is what matters. If you do it from a space of resentment, victimhood, powerlessness and thinking that you don’t have a choice then that is what you create more of in your life. If you start to be more present and acknowledge that this is just what you are choosing right now, you bring yourself out of that powerlessness and into a world of possibilities.
When you put YOU into what you do, you also contribute to the people around you. They will feel more at ease and be inspired by your energy. The more you do this each day, the more it becomes a habit, and the more you will start to attract new possibilities into your life that resonate with who you truly are. You will also feel a deeper sense of inner peace and fulfilment because you are acknowledging WHERE you are at right now (without judgement), you are acknowledging WHO you are, and you are acknowledging that you have CHOICE.
Go ahead; take the first breath right now. You’ve got this!
Until next time, Beautiful Beings . . .
