It's June! Summer is here, and things are about to get very, very hot!!! So as we take more clothing off, to survive the heat, to survive those hormonal changes or to survive both (God help you!), and we bare more of our outer selves, I feel it is the best time to bare some of our inner self too.
So tell me, WHAT DO YOU WANT?
Have you ever actually asked yourself this?
Have you ever given yourself the permission to answer the question?
Life is a ride we get to enjoy only once (an E-ticket ride at that. 1970's Disney, anyone?). So don't miss anything!
What is it that you want?
Here is an idea to help you answer that question and manifest the answer. Take a few minutes, or more (days if you want to) and create a visual goal map for yourself.
Cut (or rip) out images from magazines, newspapers, maps, anything that reminds you of the things you would like to bring into your life.
Be kind to yourself and believe in yourself as you go through this process. Be honest. Be brave. Your heart is your compass - set it in the right direction and the ship will sail beautifully, especially when you have a little map to help you.
Work on your map from a positive position - not the negative. DECLARE what it is you want as though it's already in progress: I am eating healthy! I am strong. I am calm. I am brave. I am filled with joy. Life IS good. LIFE truly is GOOD.
Just as we are cheerleaders for our friends and families, we need to cheer on ourselves. Your own uplifting words and energy directed to yourself will change you, in ways you may not have even expected. Yeah, I know many of you may not be comfortable with this whole thing of DECLARING YOURSELF AWESOME. My words to you: get comfortable with it. YOU ARE AWESOME! And the more you tell yourself this, the more you will believe it, and then you will start to see the stuff in you that we all see, and love. Namaste, sister.
Post your beautiful goal map (mantra, mess, masterpiece) in a place where you can see it and where you are reminded of what you want. See it and relish in it. Smile at it. High-five it on your way out the door each day. This is your manifestation map, and you are manifesting, baby!
So, as you tie on smaller garments, and dig your bare feet into the sand - dig deep inside and get out those great ideas of what you WANT and make it happen this summer! Paste them down, scribble them out, pin them up,, and practice positive thinking. By August, there will be a more golden version of you, inside and out.
