Change your story, change your life - starting with awareness.
I wanted to cover a subject close to my heart because this really is at the centre of all manifesting - both wanted and unwanted and that is 'our story'. We tend to do things, say things on a day to day basis that are keeping us stuck.
A bit like a re-run of an old movie that just keeps playing the same script over and over again. And when we play the same script over and over again, we get the same results over and over again. So we start our days knowing exactly what is going to happen. We do the same old things, talk to the same old people, moan about the same old stuff. Yes, our lives can end up a bit like groundhog day!
So we are continuing with our theme of creating our year instead of traditional goal setting so grab your journal and ponder the question for this session to add to your blueprint for the year ahead.
What do you want to do more of this year?
So think back over the past year and consider the parts of the year that you particularly enjoyed. This can be something that you did regularly or it can be a one off event that you really enjoyed and makes you smile or feel joyful whenever you think about it.
Is this something that you want to include more of in your life?
So over the past few sessions we have been adding layers of ideas and questions to help you make this a great year without the traditional goal setting and here is another question for you to help create that blueprint even further.
What passions do you want to spend time on this year?
And let's face it, it you are anything like me, your life is pretty full in one way or another - organising family life, running a home, your career or whatever else it maybe for you.
But are you taking any time for yourself to do what you are passionate about?
Do you even know what you are passionate about right now?
I hope you enjoyed creating your theme for the year and making that list of the person that you want to be for the coming year and beyond! In this episode I have another question for you to help you create a great year and that is: What do you want to be known for this year?
So to do this, you need to imagine for a moment that you are at the end of the year looking back over what you have achieved this year. And you can either do this as a journal entry or you can imagine that you are having a discussion with someone you are close with - or even your higher self. Whatever feels good to you...
So in the last episode we talked about creating a theme for the year and I shared what my theme was for 2020 and also what I chose for the last couple of years. Doing this really creates a foundation that gives you focus for the year so if you haven't listened to that episode - number 50. Then please do go back to that one later.
What is your theme for the year? So in the last episode I talked about how we need to let ourselves off the hook when we are not feeling inspired about setting goals for the year. So in the next few sessions I will be giving you ideas on how you can create your year without the traditional goal setting or you can use these ideas as the base of your goal setting when you feel ready.
Is goal setting leaving you uninspired? Letting yourself off the hook! As my first podcast for 2020, I was going to talk about goals - after all, it's a new year and that's what we do right, set goals? However as amazing as goals are when you are aligned and inspired, you also may have times when you feel uninspired and overwhelmed. And when times like this happen, the resistance in us can make us feel an even bigger push to do something about it.
Some time ago when I discovered the 5-Step Manifestation process which I have used for some time now. It has been a great tool for helping me to push forward in so many areas of my life - one of them being this podcast...But it also highlighted how unclear I was about hat I actually wanted. I'd sit down with one of the audios and I would go blank?
Wow, what did I actually want in each of the areas of my life. And it made me realise that if I don't actually know what I want - how is the universe, source energy or whatever higher power there is within me - going to create what I want in my life?
So let's talk about what we must to to achieve our goals - especially as if like me you are starting to set yourself a lot of stretch goals at the moment. A lot of us set goals but there are some mistakes that we make along the way that can stop us achieving them or cause us to give up on them too quickly. Here we explore some of these mistakes and why they may be sabotaging your efforts. These areas are: Not loving 'what is', focusing on the loss or absence of something, focusing on how far you have to go,
