In all my spiritual teachings, and those of others that resonate with me, one of the core issues is always around remaining conscious ... staying awake in our lives to what is happening in our personal universe. From awareness, we have the power to choose.
Staying awake requires practice. It is a skill we develop. I have a ritual I use in my own life that gives me dramatic results. It’s very simple. It’s the easiest thing I do. I look forward to it. I know from 30 years in personal growth that 99 times out of 100 it is not the big shifts that create the difference in our lives. It is the consistent practice of small changes that make the most profound difference in our lives and in our experiences.
I ask you to do what I do every day, and watch what happens in your life. Every morning before you get out of bed, and every night before you go to sleep, practice imagining your life as you would like it to be. Just imagine. Do not try to figure out how you will make something happen … just imagine. Imagine what it would feel like to have the amount of money in your bank account you would like to have. Imagine what it would feel like to have the image you desire for yourself. Imagine what it would feel like to have the relationship you desire in your life. Feel those feelings. Let them bathe over you.
The second part of the ritual is to remember where you came from. You came from a source that knows only love and abundance. Love and abundance is in your DNA. You are part of this consciousness. You are not separate. Align yourself with this truth on a feeling level. Feel the strength of one consciousness. You are one wave in an ocean, ebbing and flowing perfectly in sync. You have the power to create your life with source energy because you are source energy. You do not have to earn your value. You are valuable because you exist. Abundance is your divine right. Affirm this to yourself. Feel the acceptance in your space. Allow this gentle awareness to bathe over you.
When you begin and end your day with this practice, immediately you will start to feel better, and see change in every area of your life. You will notice you have more energy. Opportunities will come from seemingly nowhere to help you improve and expand your relationships, your workspace or your health. Through this ritual you actively insert high vibrations into your energy. You consciously connect to your power. You open up your energy and give yourself permission to receive. You dissipate filters. Now you can go about your day or drift off to sleep with certainty and self-confidence. You are awake to your true nature.
When you implement this practice before you drift off to sleep, you feed your unconscious mind. You activate one of the most powerful creative mechanisms in your body. We forget that we are creating even while we sleep. Too often we end our day mulling over all the things we didn’t accomplish or achieve. When we plant the seeds of prosperity into our mind before we drift off to sleep, we create while we sleep without the filters of the ego. You will begin to experience amazing dreams. You will often awake with insight on your unfolding life experience.
Practice this technique anytime during the day if you begin to feel stressed-out or contracted. It’s a great tool for replacing worry with trust and realigning with high attraction vibrations. It works!
