Exercise 1: Your Vision
This exercise is to enable you to get really clear on how want your life to be. If you don’t know where you’re headed… who knows where you’ll end up…
Because of our past experiences, many of us feel uncomfortable asking for what we truly want. We’ve learnt that our wants and needs and opinions are less important than other’s are. And when our subconscious beliefs are that we don’t deserve to have what we want or desire… there can be resistance around acknowledging our dreams and asking the Universe to support us with them.
But the Universe responds to clarity with clarity. The clearer you are in your communication, the more likely you will receive exactly what you want.
So, firstly… know that you truly are worthy of having everything that you want.
Your dreams are important.
Your desires matter.
You can have it all.
You deserve to have it all.
And you will.
(Take note of your internal dialogue as you read those words - did any of those sentences trigger a reaction? Why do you think that happened? What subconscious beliefs could you have that are in opposition to what I stated? This is useful information, so if anything came up for you, take a moment to write it down somewhere)
Secondly: think of this exercise like writing a Christmas Wish List to Santa. The old guy needs to know exactly what you want, so that he can deliver it to you.
The act of visualisation is based on neuroscience principles. Your incredible human brain contains about 86 billion neurons ('brain cells'), and is able to rewire it's neural networks, to change and grow and adapt (this is 'neuroplasticity').
By visualising what you want, you activate cells in your brain that reinforce that vision and outcome, instructing your unconscious mind.
We all get so busy and caught up in our day-to-day lives that we ignore the voice of our soul, our internal compass and light. Making time to quieten your mind and listen to your soul means you receive heart-felt guidance that is authentic for you. You receive answers that are untainted by the world around you, by the rational mind, the expectations of others or cultural norms. The more often you tune into this part of yourself and understand what your being truly wants and needs, the more your life will flow and look the way you want it to.
Try to spend a few minutes each day imagining yourself achieving all of your goals, living your dream life.
Create a detailed mental image of exactly how it will look and, most importantly, how it will FEEL to achieve your goal. Doing this regularly programs your subconscious mind to immediately begin looking for opportunities to achieve the goal... As a result, you’ll soon begin to notice people and resources appearing around you that will help you manifest what it is that you desire.
>>> Grab a pen and a piece of paper, a journal, a scrapbook, anything you can write on
>>> There are many ways you can feel into and visualise what your life would ideally be like. There are no wrong answers and no wrong ways to do this. You can try just one of the options suggested, or all of them - whatever works for you
>>> Find a quiet space alone and get really comfortable. Take a few deep breaths, and relax. Place your hand on your heart to bring your awareness there. Spend a couple of minutes consciously breathing and becoming present in your body. Then begin one of the activities below
OPTION 1 - YOUR IDEAL DAY
Think about your ideal, dream day... What would your day to day life ideally look like?
Really tune in to as much detail of it as you can.
What sort of activities are you doing?
What are you wearing?
How do you feel when you wake up? Throughout the day? As you go to bed?
OPTION 2 - FUTURE TRIPPIN’
a. Imagine you're chatting to future you, 12 months from now. Ask your future self: "In the past year, what's your proudest achievement? What made you feel most alive? What has changed in your life?" Listen to her or his answers and write them down.
b. Imagine you're chatting to 90 year old you, and ask similar questions of her or him. What wisdom and advice do they have for your current self?
OPTION 3 - PIECES OF THE PIE
Consider each aspect of your life, one by one: home, health, money, love, career, social life, friendships, romantic relationships, leisure, lifestyle, spiritual life... and note down how you’d like each aspect to look and to feel.
For example, what does your ideal relationship look and feel like?
Your dream career? Your desired financial situation? Your dream home? Your ultimate hobbies?
OPTION 4 - JOURNALLING
Allow yourself to ‘free write’ answers to these prompts. Free writing is just allowing a stream of consciousness form your mind onto the page. Don’t filter or edit what comes out, even if it’s total gibberish.
To get started, just begin writing something, anything - whatever comes to mind. It might be ‘I am starting to write to see what comes up and I will just keep writing until an answer flows through and..’. Eventually an answer will begin to flow through the pen onto the page for you. Let it all stream out, no judgement or editing.
What’s on your mind right now?
Where do your priorities lie?
Are there any problems in particular areas of your life which you feel need attention?
Which features of your life are you most keen to change?
How would your life look different, in your perfect world?
Sharing something that has previously existed only within you is a powerful part of the manifesting process.
Research has shown that those who share their goals are actually more likely to achieve them.
Once something that only existed within you is out in the open as a real, visceral, concrete entity, you feel an increased sense of responsibility and commitment to honour it.
So if you feel comfortable doing so, I would love for you to share your vision, your dream, your goals in our Facebook group. The group is a safe and supportive space in which we can connect, inspire and encourage each other.
EXERCISE 2: CHAKRA CLEANSING
I believe that the world truly needs each of us to embody our full potential, live our dream lives, and send our light out into the Universe.
Meditation is how we tap into our true selves to achieve all we’ve ever dreamed of.
Meditation is the answer. If that idea or the word ‘meditation’ triggers resistance in you, please read on…
In my experience, we tend to resist and avoid doing the things that are most beneficial for us; and for me, this was true for meditation up until just five years ago.
I’m sure you’ve heard of some of the many incredible benefits (physical, mental and emotional) of meditation that modern research is finding.
So I just want to share with you some of the significant changes I personally experienced when I began regularly cleansing my chakras through meditation:
I ‘became’ psychic
I didn’t know that I had any psychic ability at all until a few years ago. After I’d been meditating daily for some time, I developed the ability to perceive energy and information from the spirit realm (this happened in an easy and gentle way, and it can do so for you too).
I uncovered my soul’s purpose
Up until beginning a regular meditation practice, I had worked more than FIFTY different jobs in my lifetime (seriously), across many different industries. I was so lost. I was desperately searching. Meditation, and the flow on effects of it, provided me with the clarity and direction and contentment that I sought.
I naturally attracted aligned opportunities
As we improve the state of our chakras and energy field, we improve the state of our external lives. Our inner creates our outer. When all of our chakras healthy, the different areas of our lives that each chakra influences are healthy. We vibrate at a higher frequency, and become an energetic match for opportunities and experiences that serve our greatest good.
In short, daily chakra cleansing meditation is what is responsible for you and I being here now, on this healing journey together.
Without it, I honestly would not be doing the work that I’m currently doing to serve this world.
You hold many beliefs and opinions about yourself and about life, and most of them you didn't consciously choose (and some of these you didn't even directly experience - they can be ancestral or from past lives). Most of them you've absorbed and inherited.
Unfortunately, most of what we've inherited and absorbed is negative. Your negative beliefs, whether consciously chosen or not, create blockages, stagnation and weakness in your chakras.
By doing this meditation, you’ll not only get to know and experience your own chakras, you will also start to heal, balance and strengthen them. This creates great shifts and healing in your life.
For healing to take place, the subconscious and energetic parts of you must be reached, engaged, and encouraged to change.
This is what happens during the Chakra Cleanse Meditation.
The first bit of the meditation is relaxation, necessary to move you into a state of receptivity so the subconscious mind can be accessed.
Next, you begin to work directly on your own chakras by holding your focus on each one. When you focus your attention on a chakra, it starts to open up and spin. It receives light to cleanse, balance and strengthen itself.
The third bit involves bringing White Light into your energy field, to rapidly raise your vibration, further strengthen your energy field, and foster healthy flow of energy from the heavens down as well as from the earth up.
I’ll talk more about what chakras are and why the health of them is vital in our coaching call this week, but for now, I’d love for you to give listening to the meditation a go. It’s the exact guided meditation I began meditating with five years ago, and that I still use today.
To begin with, aim to do this Chakra Cleanse Meditation 2-3 times a week (more if you can manage it), building up to daily.
Know that you don’t need to sit cross-legged or on top of a mountain, or wait for the stars to align in order to meditate. I listen to this audio while I sit on public transport. Or when I lie down in bed at night.
Take the path of least resistance by doing whatever is easiest for you and your lifestyle.
If you find trying to meditate a challenge - that’s okay. That’s normal. Just give listening to the recording a go. It doesn’t matter if your mind is really active or drifts off. Over time, it will become easier for you to focus.
