How was your holidays? Let me guess….busy?
I can’t even count how many times I heard people express how crazy busy the holiday season has been for them. Being chronically busy has become the “normal” state of mind for most people these days. And it’s becoming more apparent that we live in a culture where people feel pushed to their max to keep up, do more, stay more connected, and accomplish more.
When I took a quick look on social media this past week, I saw tons of people talking about “goal setting” for 2019.
Sure, it’s great to set goals, but personally, I think the last thing we all need is another fucking to-do list! We get so caught up with doing that we tend to forget that the primary driver behind all that we want to accomplish in life is a feeling state.
So instead of asking you what you want to accomplish this year, I want to ask you:
- WHO do you want to BE this year?
- How do you want this next year to FEEL?
Hit The Easy Button This Year
Asking yourself who you want to be this year rather than what you want to accomplish is the easiest way to hit the easy button in your life, come back to your center, and lead from a place of self-empowerment. The wisdom gained from coming back to your center is the easiest way to un-busy yourself, because this is the place you have the most perspective in your life.
When you focus on what you want to accomplish — on doing — you’re leading from a place of force, which takes effort. When you focus on who we want to be and how you want to feel in your life, you have an opportunity to lead from a place of power which embodies a certain quality of effortlessness; of strength.
It’s the epitome of trying, pushing and striving to “accomplish” something versus allowing, attuning and aligning with a feeling state of how you want to live your life; aligning with a state of being and just being that person, rather than trying to be that person.
It’s the difference between upstream effort that feels like an exhausting struggle versus downstream effort, where you’re paying more attention to synchronicities, where the right people seem to magically show up, or the right information you need falls in your lap at exactly the right moment in time.
The irony is that when you lead from your desired feeling state, you’ll actually accomplish much more with your year.
So let me ask you one more time. Close your eyes and tune in with your heart. How do you want this year to feel?
I know for me personally, my answer is not: busy. That’s the last thing I’m going for this year. When we’re chronically busy, there’s no room for magic to happen or miracles to unfold; we’re too darn busy to notice!
I’m also consciously choosing to pay particular attention to my stress level this year, because stress is the antithesis of creation, and certainly doesn’t foster an open channel of inspiration. And I’m doing this by focusing on what I do want to feel this year. I’ve written these words down on several cards as visual reminders of the feeling state I want to re-pattern my body into experiencing more frequently.
This year I want to feel:
Easeful and in the flow
This year, I want to Resonate at the Frequency of Greatness. How about you?
The Key to Manifesting All That You Desire This Year
This frequency first approach is the key to becoming the Visionary of your life. Hold a clear inner vision in your minds eye of what you want to see show up in your life and couple that vision with your desired feeling state.
It’s so simple, and I’ve witnessed countless miracles unfold in my own life as a result of this visionary practice. All it requires is putting aside a little time to incorporate this into your daily practice. Adopting these daily practices and not just thinking about them, but actually doing them is what it means to embody the visionary archetype.
I’m holding a vision of my dream home in my minds eye and I love visiting this place in my visionary states. I go to this place every morning and the feeling it gives me fuels and inspires the rest of my day to connect with and create magic.
What inner vision are you holding for yourself for this year?
Music to Move You
I absolutely love this entire album called Love is King Love is Queen by Avasa & Matty Love. The song I’m recommending today is called Listen from this album. When you take the time to go within and listen to what your heart is whispering to you, and start attuning your awareness to these more subtle feeling states, you step out of the ordinary, and start living the extraordinary.
May the inner vision you hold come to fruition this year and bring your more joy and happiness than you ever could have possibly imagined. May you align with so much goodness this year and manifest all that your heart desires.
You are worthy to receive it.
From my heart to yours,
