This guidance is all about making the BEST of what we have, and we have the gift of LIFE, so let’s work with it rather than against it.
Step 1: Peace
The first step in living your BEST life is to find peace, and make peace.
Know that all is working out beautifully; all is well and in place.
You are on a journey and it’s not about having all your ducks in a row, it’s about ‘the messy’ and how you grow from that – how you see it, approach it, the questions you ask, and the desire that comes out of that messiness, for a more aligned and joyous ride of the ‘life wave’.
Embracing peacefulness means tuning in to your breath, becoming still and centered, and simply observing everything – yourself, your surroundings, the interactions of people, nature, animals, plants.
Achieving peacefulness reconnects you to your truth, your source, your inner guidance, your higher self, your guides . . . it reconnects you [fullstop]
This is the first step in anything you want to achieve, be or do – get still, get connected, get tapped in to that flow of breath that is spirit ebbing and flowing through you.
BE your breath . . . BE your awareness . . . BE peacefulness.
When you have found your place of AHHHHhhhhhhhh, you tap into feelings that you thought you were separate from – feelings of abundance, of power, of clarity, of love. You are never without these things because they ARE your true nature. You just forget to tune in, to connect and to allow the true essence of your spirit flow through. Easily fixed, yes?
Step 2: Be EASY about it all!
This still feels rather peace-like, doesn’t it? But there’s a difference. Rather than BEING the peace, stillness and awareness, this step is about how you APPROACH things in your life. We cannot avoid what we don’t like so we have to learn how to BEST work with it for the BEST outcomes.
The Universe works FOR us, not against us. The more we struggle to make things happen or to work them out from a disconnected place, the more we end up tied in knots and three steps backwards . . . or are we? If we don’t like how we’ve done something, a choice or path we’ve taken, or we just can’t find any sense of purposeful direction and passion, we’re still on track according to the Universe.
You see, we can’t get it wrong! Everything is an opportunity. Everything that ties us in knots makes us desire a free flowing, passionate, full-of-purpose-and-direction vision even more. It’s done. It’s there. It’s waiting for us!
So, here’s the deal . . . if you can’t see ahead or find your direction, BE in step 1 – in a state of peacefulness and connection. Be in a state of ease and TRUST that your best life is already created. You’ve been through enough! You’ve asked enough. You’ve experienced enough to know all the things that you DON’T want – oh yes, I hear the cries of “enough already!” All of that ‘stuff’ hasn’t been a punishment or some karma from a past life (well, perhaps a little, *smile*). No, it’s been about choice and experience, and from that experience, “What would I choose that is BETTER?”. From what I’ve experienced and seen, “What would I CHOOSE for myself? What would I prefer? What would I LIKE? What would I LOVE . . . if only. . . ?”.
All that ‘stuff’ has been your life’s journey so far. It’s all been worthy because it’s created YOU and it has expanded you! Now dear ones, it’s time to be peaceful (step 1, remember?) and TRUST (that’s step 2). Have faith that you are perfectly where you’re meant to be. Have faith that you can indeed HAVE a ‘best life’ and that you DESERVE it (more step one-ing to tap into those gorgeous connected, knowing feelings or worthiness and self-love!).
If you feel like you’re struggling to ‘make things happen’ or feel like you have to do it NOW (you’ve got a lot to catch up on, right?), remember to trust. Just expect the best. Expect the illuminating thoughts, inspiration and visions to come. Expect the answers to flow. After all, now you have the keys to reconnecting and it’s in that place where you can solve your problems and move through your challenges with greater ease. You can’t do it from the disconnected place. You’ve already tried that – haven’t we all? That’s what we’re good at, but now our intention is to get good at ALLOWING the great stuff, the creative stuff, the visionary stuff, or even just the best next-choice-I’m-facing-right-now kinda stuff. Add this to a sticky note: “Connect first! >> answers, clarity, insights and ‘stuff-that-makes-sense’ . . . second!” - It just doesn’t work the other way around.
Step 3: Inner Wisdom
Oh, this is exciting to share with you!
You know what to do. You know how to connect, to be still, to breathe, and to allow your true essence to flow through you. You know that your inspiration and direction comes when you’re in that place of inner peace. You’re working on the trust aspect. Be still, listen, trust. Now what?
What can you actually DO to create your best life?
Well, this is where CREATION comes into it. We are all divine sparks of creation and it is our energy, our spirit, our purpose to CREATE through our intention and focused thoughts.
First, we recognise that we do have the power and knowledge to live our best life and that it all comes from WITHIN. We have a direct connection to Source, to spirit, to our higher self. None of that is external to us. We don’t need to look to the ‘heavens’ for direction.
Our own inner being is eternal spirit illuminating us from the inside out!
We ARE the creative force of the universe and we have been given FREE CHOICE in how we express our creative spirit. Now that you KNOW how to find your connection, your clarity, your direction, your inspiration and your insight (inner sight), you become the powerful creator in your life.
You move with AWARENESS through your life.
You FEEL for what feels good and move away from what does not.
Your FOCUS brings you a sharper intention like an arrow.
No longer do you try and cast a wide net and hope, with fingers crossed, that you catch a couple of ‘good things’ along the way!
Now you get to tune in to the unique energy of YOU and ask:
“Hey, what makes me FEEL great?”
“What INSPIRES me?”
“What would I ENJOY creating?”
“What would be FUN?”
“What would bring me JOY, just because I KNOW I can CREATE it?”
“What CHALLENGE would I love to take on, that would be BIG, BOLD and WILDLY COURAGEOUS . . . but awesomely fun and exciting at the same time?”
“What makes my heart/soul SING?”
“I dare me to . . . ”
“If I could do ANYTHING, I would . . . ”
“What if . . . ”
“Wouldn’t it be awesome to . . .”
You get the picture . . . the vision . . . the possibilities?
There is NOTHING stopping you.
P.S. What about doubt? What about fear? What about the crappy stuff?
Hee hee hee, step 1, then step 2, then step 3. If you’re focusing on those steps, you are BEing in a positive, creative energy that is who you truly are. Do the negative bumpy things feel like a match to that vibration? Didn’t think so.
When you’re predominantly focused on the best, juicy, inspirational bits of life, the rest kind of falls away. No need to push it away (because then you’re thinking about it again, aren’t you!). Focus on what makes you feel good. Focus on what you want more of.
Can you see, looking back to the ‘old’ you, how you tried and struggled to fix the crappy stuff and you only got more of it? Do you see how those negative uninspiring things took up so much of your focus and you almost forget there was any ‘good stuff’ out there?
Now, you KNOW that you are powerful, that you are truly limitless, that your thoughts and focus CREATE your outcomes! I almost want to insert an evil MWAHH HA HA HA HA laugh in here – FEEEEL the power! Too much? *grin*
Really, those who know me would think “Who is this person writing this article with such passion and a twist of fun? I thought Donna was quiet and shy?”. Well, this is the tuned-in, connected, fullest-self kinda me. There’s no fears. There’s no embarrassment or self-consciousness. But there IS colourful, inspiring energy, a deep sense of purpose, an inner knowing and a twist of that fun and silliness. There’s a feeling of energy flowing through me (really, it’s ALIVENESS) rather than the shut-down, knottiness, tension kind of stuck feeling that I know you all can relate to. YOU can overcome that too!
P.P.S. My VISION for YOU
I soooooooo (“to infinity and beyond” – Buzz Lightyear I believe) want for ALL of you to just let go of the yuck-and-stuck, and just get on with your true business of being YOU.
I can’t wait to watch so many of you blossom and emerge into a unique creative expression of your soul!
I can’t wait to hear about your wild, inspired visions and see them unfold for you!
I can’t wait to see you light up – so much more than just the smile on your face!
I can’t wait . . .
