Good morning, sweet friend!
Did you have fun shining this weekend?
Recently I had the time and space to reconnect with what it is that I truly want in this season of life.
In the past, I've made lists of things that I dream about having in my life one day, but, what really, truly matters to me right now?
Maybe you've had time to think about your priorities lately and what you most want in your life during this season.
If not, I encourage you to grab a piece of paper or open a note on your phone and start thinking about what you really want.
What is your heart longing for?
I talk a lot about money and attracting abundance into your life, but money can't buy the things that we're really craving.
Money can buy you a beach vacation, a bigger house, a nicer car, a larger piece of land, a pool or hot tub in your backyard, etc., but what is it that you're really hoping to gain from the things that you have on your Dream Life list?
Are you longing for more space and peace in your life?
Are you desiring deeper connections with those that you love?
Are you wanting to have more fun?
Are you craving more beauty in your life?
Are you wanting greater freedom?
Maybe you're not sure what it is that you're really wanting deep down.
You can try this simple exercise.
Write down one thing that you really want.
I'll use a beach vacation as an example.
I would love to go on a beach vacation with my family this winter, because I want to have fun and make new memories with my loves.
Why do I want to have fun and make new memories?
Because I desire to have more joy and love in my life.
Those are my heart's deepest desires.
So, what is it that you really want?
Pick one thing on your Dream Life list and ask yourself why you want that thing and then why you want that and so on...
Keep going until you find the emotions that you're hoping to feel from achieving your dream.
For me, every single thing on my list leads back to wanting more love, joy, and peace in my life.
What matters most to you?
No matter what the things are that you really want, you can have every single one of them by being more present in your life.
Here is a fun, new tool you can try right now for greater presence:
(adapted from Jeffrey Allen's body awareness meditation in Unlocking Transcendence)
Imagine a bucket or faucet over your head labeled "ME".
Allow that bucket or faucet to pour a golden, glowing liquid that is YOU into the top of your head.
Let it flow down into your feet and toes.
Feel the golden liquid filling you up more and more as the endless supply of YOU keeps pouring down.
Allow that liquid to fill you up to the tippety top of your head and to even overflow so that liquid YOU displaces anything in your body that isn't you.
Throughout the day, if you notice that you're not fully present or you feel off balance, pour more of YOU into the top of your head until you're full of you once again.
Enjoy the feeling of being fully present in your life today!
All of the things that you want are available to you right now.
Notice the beauty, abundance, peace, joy, and love that are already inside of you and all around you.
I see you shining even brighter today, my beautiful friend, and I look forward to hearing about what it is that you really, truly want!
Much love to you,
