Right now it really feels like the world is going mad and unless you have been hiding under a rock these past weeks, you will have seen the Coronavirus media going crazy with stories about how this might affect us all. As usual, the media frenzy has caused mass panic that takes valuable resources and services away from those who really need them and has created a huge feeling of lack and fear. So lets look at how you can gain a bit of perspective around this and manage your personal energy even if you can't control everything else!
This episode follows on from the last 2 sessions so if you have't had a chance to listen to those, please go back to this episode: 44. Stop manifesting What You Don't Want and 45. Your Words Are Powerful. In this episode I talk through a nice easy exercise using just pen and paper to start flipping those thoughts that you have identified from the last few days.I hope this really helps you to focus on those better feeling thoughts to take you into 2020 strong and in the coming episodes we will be focusing on getting your year off to a great start.
What you focus on expands and lets look at how you can let go of something that is bugging you today because as we all know, energy flows where your focus goes. Most of us live in the past or the future instead of enjoying the present moment. All those old stories go though our mind again and again. So change starts by telling ourselves a different story and the quickest way to do this is to focus on the feeling instead.
Alignment isn't just about feeling good. It's also about how we align with our thoughts, feelings and beliefs and one way of doing this is to change or enhance who we are being.It can really help to think of someone that you admire, either someone in your life or someone in the public eye who you would like to be more like. What is one quality that this person has which you would like to invite into your life.
So here's another way that you may be sabotaging your manifestation mojo without even realising it. You may see the universe as something separate from yourself! Now this has it's place and seeing the universe as a separate entity can really help when you are doing some fun manifestation practices. And although we know deep down that we need to take 100% responsibility for our life, we do start to rely too much on that thought that the universe miraculously delivers us anything we want on a plate. So we start to see the universe as this big wishing well instead of it being an alignment practice but this can cause us to be separate from it all. We hand over the responsibility to this higher power when WE ARE that higher power. Everything comes from inside! We are the creators of our world.
So society (at least as I know it), encourages us to suppress our emotions. Logic is revered above all else but I don't think we should suppress them - in fact suppressing feelings can be bad for our health in general as they fester inside us.So whilst you don't want to be an emotional wreck wherever you go, you need to be able to feel your feelings in some way - we all need an outlet of some sort. So here are some ideas that might help you to express your emotions in a safe and effective way.
Our feelings are everything when it comes to our alignment. You may have heard the phrase 'thoughts become things' but its only really part of the story. Its not just what we think, its what we are feeling as a result of this thought. This is why some affirmations don't work, because we don't feel like we are aligned to them and life is a mirror after all - so trying too hard to affirm something that doesn't feel true means you are affirming the absence of it instead.
I have been in a bit of a funk myself this past few days as you may have noticed from a couple of my podcasts but this is totally normal, we all get like it from time to time - perfection not required after all....even when we are conscious creators! Here are three ways that I used yesterday to get out of my funk and I hope they help you to make a shift if you are just having one of those days.
