Eery single day is bursting with potential. Every single day can be equally infused with love. Every single moment contains an infinity of creative options.
I was raised in a paradigm that said– “You can enjoy things once you achieve things.” That achievement came easy to me at first, and then I was shamed for not “working hard enough.” If it was easy, it wasn’t an achievement. And, when I tried really hard to work really hard and avoid all my talents and gifts that made things easy, everything magical in my life came to a grinding halt.
I took on a new paradigm through a lot of necessity that says–” I achieve things when I enjoy things.”
Feeling good is my path to all great things. And, it turns out I’m not alone.
While you can accomplish a whole lot from a place of self-condemnation and non-stop grinding work, that isn’t a sustainable model for life. Also, what you accomplish, especially if it’s costing you your joy or your well-being, will be lacking the sparkle of joy that it could have had!
While work, practice, challenge and overcoming are all a part of the adventure, feeling good is a magic formula for manifesting.
Today let’s look at some fun Feng Shui to expand all that magic that you have!
Start the day knowing something amazing is happening.
I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again– there’s nothing quite like expecting amazing things in order to set amazing things on the way to you!!!
Whether you shout it out loud or write it in a journal or meditate on this idea and feel it… it’s well-worth giving it a try!
Give yourself more “you time.”
I thought that I have wasted a handful of years of my life being “not serious” and “achieving nothing” as I sought to know myself better and undo the traumas of my past. I didn’t have a “serious job” and I barely made money enough to get by… but I did find a lot of freedom in this time.
It wasn’t wasted. It was vital.
I had given myself “ZERO” me-time up until then, and, so, I made up for lost time!
You are entitled to breaks, time to process things and time to do “nothing” but feel good or seek to feel better.
Check out some mind-expanding books and films.
There are fountains of knowledge that are life-changing everywhere– at bookstores, vintage shops, libraries… films on Netflix, at museums, even on TV.
I get a lot of “bits” of information online all day long, and I bet you do, too. But, if you are looking for more depth and growth, go deeper with your learning.
I have five un-read books I can’t wait to crack open, one-by-one, and even more than are on the way that I am even more excited about!!!
Do you have interests that are un-mined or ready to expand?! Interests possibly unrelated to work, unrelated to obligations, unrelated to anything but pure joy?!
Tune in, tap in, flip open a book and start indulging!
All that joy and all the other depths in disciplines will infuse everything you do with more interest and excitement!
Bring on the sparkling home!
How many times have you heard me talk about the joys of housecleaning?! This is yet another one!
Learn a new craft.
Arts, crafts, hobbies, dance classes… all the making and creating does wonders for your energy and inspiration.
On my list for the season: weaving (!) a wall hanging, jumping workouts on a rebounder and making my own body butters.
These are small-sounding things, I know, but they are like balls of excitement to do each one.
If you don’t have a hobby or a craft— is there something you’ve been wanting to try but you haven’t had the time or energy to do?!
Set those wheels in motion!
Focusing on something fun and random makes it easier to manifest the “big and serious” stuff because the seriousness starts to melt from life.
Re-set your intention.
I re-connect with my intention maybe ten times a day when I’m really making things happen like lightning.
Setting intentions to be/do/have/create things is epic, but it’s one thing to “set” them and another to “live” them.
Close your eyes for a moment throughout the day and focus on what you want.
Now, carry on with your day.
It’s incredible how something so small can shift focus in such a big way!
Dress up more.
When you’re living artfully, you’re living more fully.
You don’t need a special wardrobe to put a little energy into dressing up. It can be the simplest of things like ironing your clothes so they are well-loved, or organizing your closet so your clothes can be easily located, that can shift your wardrobe into something more artful.
Any way you can help, anything you can give meaningfully, is a way you forward blessings.
Being of service is one of the greatest ways to live with powerful connection.
That powerful connection— that Love– makes monumental things happen!
Here’s to all the love, excitement and deliciousness of bringing your dreams to life!
