“It is the set of the sails, not the direction of the wind, that determines which way we will go” ~ Jim Rohn
Have you ever said to yourself "There is more to life than this!" I used to say that very thing to myself a lot! One day I decided to shift my thinking in a positive way. As the old adage states, “When you can’t change the direction of the wind, adjust your sails.”
So how does one do that?
Acknowledging you need a change in direction in of itself is a first step in the right direction. Once you discover what you are passionate about you can begin to see what your life purpose is. In aligning with your life’s purpose, it is important to love, accept and embrace who you are, allowing yourself to be your truest form of who you are really supposed to be. When you shine a beautiful light and carry a higher vibration that others can see in you.
Within that discovery you begin to create a beautiful life that you truly desire. Upon making that decision, the Universe conspires on your behalf to make it happen. Once you have figured out your passion, your sense of purpose fuels the perseverance to make the changes you want in your life. You will be proud doing what you love to do.
You may have been raised in the old belief that you finish school, you get a job and work the daily grind. You have worked that job to pay the bills. It does not matter if you have liked your job or not. You may begin to feel like a robot. This is not fulfilling at all. There is more to life than being a robot. Sound familiar?
This is the point where your job no longer feeds your soul. The good news is that you do not have to live your life doing things that are not fulfilling. Shifting your attention to what we really want enables you to live the life you really desire.
Envision how you would like your life to be like. Dream of a rewarding life where every day you absolutely love what you are doing. It is no longer a job; it is fun work!
Life sometimes has a way of having its twists and turns. It can put people or situations in your path for a reason. You have to trust that life keeps your best interest in mind and be open to whatever that reason is. When you are open and trust what comes your way, beautiful shifts begin to occur.
The Law of Attraction...
The principles of The Law of Attraction are simply a descriptive format for how we create our reality. They relate the result of what we continue to experience by what we send out. That result can come in the form of emotions, or vibrations, to our world at large.
Everything, including yourself, your thoughts and anything else you may or may not want to experience, is pure energy vibrating at different frequencies.
The basic premise of the Law of Attraction is that like-energy attracts like-energy. Visualizing a mental image of what you want to achieve creates and brings what you visualize into your life. Repeating positive statements, or affirmations, manifests what you repeat into reality. In other words, you use the power of your mind, thoughts, imagination and words to manifest the world you want to live in.
Here are some exercises to put the Law of Attraction into motion…
1. Relax your mind and meditate…
Meditate every day for about 10 minutes. Doing this will increase your brainpower. While meditating, create a vision board in your mind of what you desire.
2. Be clear about what you desire and don’t doubt yourself…
Keep in mind that you are sending a request to the Universe – it is created by thoughts and therefore responds to thoughts. Be clear about what you want. If you are not clear, the Universe will get an unclear frequency and send you unwanted results. So be sure it is something you have a strong enthusiasm for.
3. Put in your request to the Universe…
Send a picture of what you desire to the Universe and the Universe will answer. See this picture as already being yours. The more detailed your vision, the better. If you are wanting that dream trip to Bora Bora, imagine yourself buying the tickets, flying on the plane and landing there. See yourself walking on the beach.
4. Write down your desire…
Start with "I am so happy and grateful now that..." and finish it in a paragraph. Tell the Universe what it is that you want. Write it in the present tense as if you have it right now. Keep it in a positive tone. Every day, close your eyes and imagine your desire as if it is happening right now, and see your imagination become clearer.
5. Feel your desire…
Actually rest into the feeling of your desire. Speak, act and think as as if your desire has already come to fruition; as though you are already living it.
6. Show gratitude…
Write down all the things the Universe has given you. Be thankful for what you already have and for all those things the Universe has given you. Sending the Universe gratitude will bring even more things into your life. Just remember, keep your thoughts positive!
7. Trust the Universe…
Imagine an alternate dimension that is almost exactly like the real world, but whatever you truly desire comes true in an instant. See yourself in that dimension: whatever you ask the Universe for comes to you in an instant. Don't go looking for what you asked; this is where people tend to mess up. If you keep looking for an event that manifests your wish, it is only telling the Universe that you do not have it. This sets the stage for your desire not coming true. Be patient.
The vibrations you put out to the Universe come back to you tenfold. You envision what you desire and clearly state it to the Universe. Do not get attached to the details of what you want and do not micromanage how it will happen. Be open to receive the gifts the Universe sends you in return for the actions that you have put forth.
Just show up and put forth the effort and the Universe will do the rest. Before you know it, what you have envisioned becomes reality. Live the creation of your passion by trusting and receiving in gratitude, simply by shifting your perspective on what you desire in your life.
Adjust your sails and live the life you truly desire! Manifesting really works!
