Happy February (already!) and Happy Valentines Day to those of you who are celebrating Love in your life — whether it be romantic love, self-love, platonic love, the love of your children or your furry friends.
Celebrating Love and all that we are grateful for opens up our ability to attract more love into our lives.
My life gets very busy with raising two little ones, running a household and a business. It’s easy to get swept away by the chaos of the daily grind, isn’t it? Pausing to catch my breath, sometimes I notice just how much I am DOing and make a mental note to slow down. I also recognize how truly awesome it is to be able to live life on my own terms.
Not because my life is special in any way…
Rather it’s because the way I live NOW is such a major contrast to where I was not too long ago. It’s hard to even imagine that at one point I could scarcely dream of having my own family, or even learn to create — let alone LOVE — my life.
Everything in your life is relative to what you believe. So where has your attention been?
Has it been on what’s going wrong in your life… or what’s going RIGHT?
Has it been on where you don’t want to go… or where you WANT to be?
Are you coming from a place of contraction and negativity… or LOVE and EXPANSION?
These are important questions to ask because our thoughts, energy and emotions are directly related to the goodness (or otherwise) that we allow into our lives.
Many people are surrounded by goodness yet they can’t bring themselves around to enJOY those lovely blessings. Others are going through difficult times and don’t believe they will find anything better. Some are faithfully following the breadcrumbs on the path to their dream and wondering if they will ever get there.
The truth is, ALL of these people will make it to their ‘chosen’ destination whether they are getting there by default or consciously creating.
Bottom line: We create the lives we believe are possible.
That’s why it’s super important to create your life from a place of LOVE and EXPANSION.
There was a time not too long ago when all of my strength went into survival… I was confined to a hospital bed with the arduous task of literally learning how to walk again. How was it that in the most physically and emotionally challenging time of my life I became the most powerful? And how is it that people who seem to have it all can feel utterly lost?
It’s all about the energy we embody. This energy is connected to our emotions, our beliefs about ourselves, our worth, and our life purpose. When you are able to shift your focus and use your energy effectively, you will REACT less and CREATE more.
So, how do you make the switch from a mindset of lack… to abundance?
Here are a few practical mindset tips:
- Think BIG even if you don’t see signs of your dream yet. Focus on what you want (instead of what you don’t want).
- Celebrate what you CAN do instead of what you see as a limitation.
- Find the beauty in the present moment.
- Use the inertia of your emotions to take you to where you want to be.
- Let LOVE shape your next steps.
Staying in a LOVE mindset takes some practice and is only hard if you’re stuck in a pattern. Many of you are highly sensitive and are aware of the emotions you experience from day to day, moment to moment. Some of you are even getting better at recognizing when negative patterns creep in.
Continue using your gift of sensitivity to create your life from within, from that sacred place of LOVE.
