What are your desires and dreams for your life? Do you think it’s possible for them to exist with ease and to live with a thriving feeling inside of you and in your life?
The truth is, YOU CAN. We do this when we lay down the burden, the fear and the guilt in all the areas that it exists within our lives. We can have what we desire for our lives just because we are choosing to. It sounds unbelievable, I know. But let me share with you, that it IS possible! It takes faith within yourself and your life, having sisterhood around you to support your dreams and desires and of course the tools to create the life you imagine if nothing else mattered.
The first step is to believe
One of the most important steps in manifesting the life you desire is to change your vibration and let go of your limiting belief system. Our belief system is ingrained in us from childbirth, but you have the ability to choose to change this vibration by believing you are worthy of thriving.
Start by taking notice of any limiting beliefs that cross your mind on a daily basis. For instance you might notice you are telling yourself, “that’s unrealistic” or “I can’t do that”, or “I’m not smart enough”, or “I’m not good enough”, or “that would be selfish”. Thoughts such as these that make you feel heavy or even sad are a trigger that you desire more. When you start noticing, you can change the vibration from “I’m not good enough” to “I am capable”, and then really believe it so you can start taking action. It’s so easy to get caught up in the “I can’t” of life but it’s just as easy to start living from “I can”.
Here are some steps to help you on your way to manifesting your dreams and desires:
Start a daily practice of using affirmations with meditation
If you are new to this idea, don’t worry about doing it wrong and feel free to start small. If all you desire is a getaway, allow yourself to sit in stillness and use an affirmation to call in the vibration such as “I enjoy my relaxing vacation and sipping wine by the fire.”
Once you are more comfortable, amp it up by doing some deep breathing exercises to open your heart and call in your spirit guides, angels and keepers for assistance. Start claiming your desires as if you already own them.
Once you start doing this every day, it becomes easier to notice when your limiting beliefs show up so you can lean in again to the vibration of “I am” or “I have”.
Hand-write your dreams and desires as specific as possible using the present tense
This is really fun exercise because it allows you to get as specific and clear about your true intentions to thrive. Go crazy and don’t worry about how unrealistic it may seem (remember those limiting beliefs?). Find a quiet place where you won’t be interrupted and take a moment to center yourself with some cleansing breaths connecting to your heart space. Start writing about your amazing life and all that you have and all that you are for as long as you need to get it all out.
The most important thing to remember here is to write as if you already living in your thriving. Use strong, affirmative language such as “I am” or “ I have” or “I do” or “It is”. Eliminate words and phrases such as “I don’t” or “I want” or “It’s not”. The universe is a powerful force of light and abundance and it does not recognize negative connotations. So if you say “my partner doesn’t watch football all day”, you just may manifest a partner who does. Instead, try saying “my partner enjoys spending time with me in engaging conversation”. See the difference?
Remember whatever you’re writing shouldn’t feel burdening or frustrating or feel in any way unsettling to you. Your writing should feel expansive and light and give you a sense of joy and excitement. If it doesn’t this likely means it not something you truly desire or it’s something you may be settling for. You are dreaming up your reality so set those boxes and perimeters aside!
Join a community of sister goddesses
Just as your way of thinking and how you move each day is important, so is having a support system of women who will encourage and celebrate you. Having a circle of women to share your passions, dreams and fears with is life changing.
If you don’t already have one, find a women’s circle in your local community. The divine feminine movement is rising and there are circles happening all over the world now. If you can’t find one then perhaps you can join an online community, or better yet, start your own circle! This gives you and all the other women who have come together to rise each other up and know that you are not alone.
Live as if you are already thriving
By taking time to understand everything you desire in life no matter how large or small you can start thriving right away. Think of one thing you can do every day that matches the vibration you are choosing. Maybe you dream of being a writer but feel you don’t have the skills to be a good writer. Take time to express your voice and write every day for five, ten, or thirty minutes. The more you access the vibration of expressing your voice, the easier it will become. Or perhaps you desire a new car. Take a car for a test drive or do a visualization exercise of yourself driving that new car.
One of the most important things to remember here is to FEEL. The dreams you have aren’t just tangible. You desire them because of how they make you feel. So if that new car is further in the future, consider how that new car makes you feel and what you can do right now to feel that way. Is it a luxury car? What can you do right now to feel the luxury of your life? Is it a convertible sports car? What can you do right now to feel free as if you’re flying?
There are countless ways to live in the vibrational energy of your dreams.
So dear goddess, what are choosing to thrive in? What do you choose to participate with? Say it out loud. Trust it. Believe it. Breathe it in with all your might. And never forget, you are worthy!
