“If you do not go within, you will go without.”
This is a truth by which I intent to live my life. In order to take your power back and create a happy and fulfilling life, you have to be clear on what a happy life means to you. I love the idea that happiness is not created as a result of certain conditions but instead, certain conditions are a result of happiness. Your beingness or in other words, your state of consciousness, creates your experience. If we want to have love in our lives, we have to BE love first. If we want to experience kindness in our world, we have to BE kind to others. Everything you need to create the life you want to live, you already have inside of you. Every day, when you wake up, you have the power of the stars and the moons inside of you. We have an unlimited amount of energy, which is flowing through us and we can focus it in any direction, which is meaningful to us. This is called a free will.
Without taking the time and learning how to work with this energy we are going to create by accident. The world constantly demands our attention and if we do not take the time to get still and harness our inner power, we will live a powerless lives of dissatisfaction, lack and anxiety. You will become what you believe yourself to be. Believing you have no power over your own life and listening to others’ ideas of what success and happiness are, is a prescription for suffering. Only if you put some time aside and get clear on how you want to live your life and why, you´ll experience the highest state of freedom. This kind of freedom allows you to re-create yourself anew in every moment and to set the vibrational atmosphere for the situations and relationships you want to experience. Checking your phone or turning the TV on, the first thing in the morning, is probably not going to get you into a state of mental clarity where you can listen to your inner truth.
And so when you wish to learn how to create a day when you´ll be ahead of the constant meaningless chatter of the world and you want to set the tone of the day for yourself, I invite you to try a practice, which will shift the way you use your energy and focus. Below you can find a daily planner designed to help you create a life, which is going to be true to who you are. This planner is different from the usual ones, because instead of writing down your to do list, you are going to reflect on a few questions. The answers to these questions, will help you to set your day up for clarity and purpose. You can print it and then fill it out every morning right before you start your day. The mornings are the ideal time to do this. You are still focused and you´re not distracted by the duties that are waiting for you. This worksheet can be done as a form of meditation, when you ask yourself the questions and you wait for the answers. The answers should be coming from the sacred place of the truth of who you are. If we want to create a meaningful life, we have to ask meaningful questions. There are not right or wrong answers to this practice. These are going to be YOUR answers, because it is YOUR life. You have the free will to create the greatest version of yourself according to your desires and knowing. No one knows your heart better than you do. It just takes a little bit of practice and stillness to be able to recognize its voice and that is, what this exercise is for.
When you are answering the first two questions: Who do I want to be? and How do I want to feel?, try to feel the feeling of the words you are writing down. Your prayer is the feeling in your heart. By feeling these states of being you practice them and then later in the day you are still able to remember how the way you want to BE felt. When you are able to tap into these feelings regardless of the conditions you are in, you are on your way to master the art of living a fulfilling life. When you vibrate the state of being you want to manifest, you are like a magnet for people and situations, which are at the same level of vibration. The third question: How do I want to make the others feel?, helps you to realize that what you give, you become. Every act, every intention, every thought sent out into the world will sooner or later come back to its source. More accurately, thoughts never leave their source, that is why what we think, we become. The last one, What do I want to create?, helps you to focus YOUR energy on things that matter to YOU. It´s purpose is to teach you that the only power you have is the power over your own life and when you focus on the lives of others and compare yourself to their lives, you rob yourself of the vital energy and you are scattered all over the place.
Therefore, in order to create something meaningful to you, you need to learn to focus your energy and power of feelings, even if only for ten minutes every morning. The basis for this exercise is that it should FEEL good, because your life should feel GOOD, too. In those ten minutes you are “rehearsing” your day and you allow the energy to flow out from your heart into the world and your day will be aligned with who you are in that moment. For you to realize the power of this practice and to set the ritual of taking time to create who you want to be in this world, I suggest you try filling the planner out every morning for a month. This will be enough time for you to start connecting the way you feel to the experiences you have during the day. By practicing regularly, your energy will shift and by the end of the month you will be looking forward to practicing the way you want to feel every morning. For me, this is my favorite part of the day, because there are infinite possibilities waiting for each of us.
My wish for you is to enjoy yourself while working on the way you want to experience your life,
