Although I have resisted journaling as a spiritual practice for a while, I have to admit that it is a powerful tool for healing and growth. Recently, I’ve been inspired to use journaling as a tool for setting intentions for the day. This exercise only takes a few minutes, and it can be very powerful.
Either first thing in the morning or prior to going to bed, I journal about the upcoming day as if I’ve already experienced it. After completing this exercise, I’ve found that a majority of my intentions had come to pass. However, there were one or two of my intentions that haven’t manifested because I allowed my mind to convince me that they wouldn’t happen. If you plan to try this exercise, don’t be discouraged if your intentions don’t manifest right away.
Sometimes, we allow our minds to sabotage our efforts. Also, the universe needs time to work its magic.
Have you ever said or thought phrases like, “That’s not good enough?”
While there are people who can easily shove these occasional thoughts aside, there are others who are holding onto an underlying belief that they’re not enough.
When I was in grade school and the teacher would ask me a question, I would claim that I didn’t know the answer even when I did. I was afraid to speak up in class because my answers might not be good enough. There were times when I felt that I needed to minimize my success and downplay my accomplishments because I wanted people to like me. Otherwise, I just wasn’t good enough. These are just some examples of how this belief can show up for us in our lives.
However, this does not have to be the case for any of us. First of all, see this belief for the lie that it is.
After all, if we are infinite spiritual beings who happen to be residing in human bodies at the moment, how can we truly be anything less than enough? Also, it can be helpful to explore the reasons for adopting these beliefs. During this process, I encourage you to seek support in order to deal with the strong feelings that may come up. While I still have this belief popping up from time to time, I try to keep things in perspective and have lots of compassion for myself. Sometimes, this is the best that we can do.
Whenever I’m about to go for something that I want, there is always a surge of excitement. However, the second that I’m about to take a big leap of faith in the direction of my desires, that little fear monster in my head tries to convince me that I’m not ready.
This can happen for one of two main reasons. Firstly, your intuition may be trying to tell you something. You may need more information before going forward, or the timing may not be right.
The second reason for your visit from the I’m not ready monster is fear. If this is the case, examine this fear more closely. Is it really justified? If not, go ahead with your leap of faith. Remember that you won’t have to do it alone.
You always have support from the spirit world, and you could always talk to a trustworthy friend, hire a coach, or find a mentor.
Hello, everyone! I received some more guidance that I’d like to share with all of you. In order to be successful, there are two essential things that need to happen. First, it is important to be in a state of gratitude as much as possible. Second, in order to be truly successful, it is important to listen to our intuition and take action according to your inner guidance. If we do these two things, we are able to create success for ourselves.
It may take some time and effort, but the journey is definitely worth it!
During meditation, I received some guidance that I wanted to share, and I hope it is beneficial to you in some way. Focus on joy and success rather than fear and stress.
Yes, I can already hear some people telling me that this is easier said than done. However, this doesn’t have to be the case. Ask yourself these two questions:
How can I bring more joy into my life? How would my life change if I focused on joy and success for just five minutes each day?
If you don’t feel able to do this right now, that’s okay. Alternatively, you may want to start by asking yourself what is keeping you from allowing more joy and greater success into your life. Remember that you always have a choice when it comes to how you want to experience life. You owe it to yourself to choose a life of joy and success. Yes, it is truthat you may have days when nothing seems to go your way, but you can still choose your reaction to those experiences.
Many of us, myself included, don’t take enough time to celebrate our accomplishments. Instead, we have a tendency to focus on our failures and mistakes. However, that will only lead to more of the same thing.
I made a list of ten biggest accomplishments, and I challenge you to do the same. You will most likely notice an immediate shift in your energy.
1. overcoming my fears and stepping into my power as a psychic medium
2. landing an awesome volunteer position
3. graduating from college with a degree in social work
4. taking voice lessons
5. educating students, professors, and administrators about blindness
6. attending college despite severe depression
8. making the decision to ask for help when I was depressed
9. hiring a coach to help me with my business and limiting beliefs
10. graduating from high school
Okay, your turn. After making this list, I want you to look at it each day, especially when you need a boost.
How do we define this thing called success anyway? Don’t we all want to be successful? Well, that’s a great start, but first we have to define it for ourselves. I used to think that if I earned good grades in school, worked really hard, and strived for perfection, I’d eventually find that dream job and start earning some money. Maybe then, I could say that I was successful. Well, I have a confession for you. Some of my college grades weren’t really that great, I’m not perfect, and I’m definitely not rolling in dough.
So if I were to use my previous definition of success, then I’d have to say that I am a failure. However, I prefer not to think of myself that way. I believe that in order to define success, we need to take a more holistic approach. That is, we need to look at the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of our situation. Now, after taking my previous view of success and replacing it with a holistic view, let’s take another look at the subject. Within the last two years, I’ve lost fifty pounds, significantly decreasing my risk of developing certain diseases. As a result, I’m more active and have more energy. I’ve also adopted a more positive attitude, significantly reduced the effects of negative self-talk, and decreased my dosage of antidepressant medication. I’ve also graduated from college with a degree in social work, began writing a book, and will be starting an intuitive counseling business. I’d say that after redefining success, I can see that I am successful. How do you define success?
