If I was a songwriter, I’d be hittin’ pay dirt right about nnnnow! All too often (read: everyday) we get caught up in the reality of our lives. How much of this sounds familiar to you?
- I’m so frustrated with my life right now, nothing seems to be as I want!
- I’m doing everything right, so why isn’t it happening yet?
- This economy sucks, my work sucks, that’s why my life sucks
- I’m sick of watching my investments dwindle and worried I’ll go broke
- How come everyone else is getting engaged and married and not me?
- I love what I do, I’m passionate about it so why aren’t I successful yet?
- If only a, b, c thing would happen, I’d be happy..
- I’m really happy, life is great, everything’s awesome, now if only ….
Get OFF the pity party merry-go-round, folks (said with firm love). You heard me. Tell me these thoughts aren’t what you think about day after day after day? Bears wondering then – if 95% of your thoughts are the SAME every day, how much of that is negative back-chattin’ glop (hint: 95% of 95%?)..
And how much of your time do you spend thinking about how GREAT you have it? Not that much ay? Thought so. Uh, I’m not letting myself off either, just as guilty of it as you, I can assure you. I’ll think “Hey, I’m doing a great job of staying focused on what I want, woohoo” and a few minutes later woops, I slip back. And so it goes, all day long.
Sigh… even for super conscious LOA creators like you and me, it can get fuzzy to remember this...
The thing is, your happy successful version is already a reality. You don’t have to create amazing new manifestations before you count yourself as blessed. You already are. And if you don’t think so, you just haven’t been practicing that version – Jeannette Maw, Supreme Conscious Creator and Adored Coach
It’s a known factoid that a new habit or thought needs to be practiced for 30 days in a ROW (some say 40) for it to stick and for changes to happen.
With this gem in hand I invite you to embark on a 30 day journey with me – pick one area of our life you would like to see changes in and start living an alternate reality today.
Choose which parts of your life (and reality) you want to shine the spotlight on. The part that is broke or that part that always makes it work no matter what? The part of you that thinks nothing is going right vs the part that KNOWS so much is happening perfectly? Same reality, different perspective.
Let’s start by stating the obvious. I’ll lead the way.. jump in at anytime ok?
Step 1: Old Reality/ Belief Statement: I can’t meditate for more than 5 minutes at a time cos it’s boring and difficult and I lose concentration. (Choose anything you want to see a change in – relationships, money, career etc)
Step 2: New Reality/ Belief Statement: Meditating is like second nature to me. So relaxing, rejuvenating and totally sets the tone for my day – it’s the best way to wake up to the World and I look forward to the peace it brings me!
Step 3: Pick your ritual: Me, I like looking into the mirror for a few minutes a day and doing my Worthies (a list of I am worthy statements, thanks Kim!). I also tell me what I like about myself, spend a few minutes feeling how I would feel then etc. I’d say Self-Love is the FIRST step to manifesting anything, ie, believing you deserve what you want. ps: for more ideas check out Jeannette’s Self Love Rocks Workbook and Audios.
Step 4: Do what feels good: Every day, make it a point to do what feels GOOD to you. If you’re worrying about something, ask yourself what would feel good right now and go do it. I’ve done this countless times to great results – peace of mind, a situation resolving itself, magical happenstances etc. Oooooooh FUN! Check out some fun ways to manage your vibe here.
Step 5: Journal: Write down your new reality on a piece of paper. Now write down all the reasons it would suck to have that come true. Surprised? Don’t be! Through this writing process, a few limiting beliefs may pop up that you may not have known existed! Once out there, you can do Byron Katie’s work on it or Psych-K or EFT (or anything else) it.
Step 6: Trust the Process: Your ONLY job is to feel good and TRUST the process. Know that it takes 30-40 days of practicing a few minutes a day to make your new belief a reality. If it doesn’t work for you, feel free to say this stinks and never do it again. But for 30 days, be fully committed to the process. Whatya got to lose?
Step 7: Allow, Allow, Allow an Attitude of Gratitude: If something’s been blocking this manifestation, step 5 should have helped uncover it. Keep repeating that step if needed. Then, go about your merry way and appreciate everything in your life with the eyes of a child – fresh, exciting and new.
