One of the most important and difficult step in the creation process is to allow what you are calling forth to manifest in physical reality. Sometimes, it takes time!!!
On that step, after visioning, after generating the feelings, you need to allow and release control. So what do you do while the Universe is conspiring and orchestrating behind the scene all that needs to happen for what you asked for to come through and to be for the best of everyone concerned?
PLAY! Cultivate joy! Laugh!
Wonder! Dance! Paint!
Do what makes you happy!
See and feel the wonder of life surrounding you! Be curious, try new things and all along KNOW deep down that it's coming. It takes time and energy to bring into physical matter thoughts and dreams from the ethereal.
I remember, when I was 16, in my English class (remember, I am French Canadian), I envisioned myself being surrounded with palm trees, in the desert speaking English fluently. It made me wonder about the purpose of these English classes… it was so hard for me… the language just didn’t click for me until… yep, you guessed it, when I was 32, I moved to Phoenix, AZ. I saw it, I felt it, I made it happen. It took 16 years but who was counting? I didn’t spend 16 years being frustrated because it wasn’t here yet. I just knew it would happen and I was curious how it would unfold.
I invite you to stay curious and to keep KNOWING in your bones that it's on its way. In the meantime… play!!! Enjoy the adventure of life.
Keep learning about yourself, about how you function in the world, about how and what you think. Believe and be self-aware enough to make the inspired adjustments to your thoughts, feelings, as well as your capacity to receive to make sure that you actually let it in when it comes into your life!
Are you someone who need to make lists and plan for months before going on a trip or while working toward a dream? Are you trying to be FULLY equipped and ready to take on EVERY possible challenge that MIGHT show up?
If so, you might find yourself feeling stuck in the planning and packing and never go where you want to go and do what you want to do. You might also feel that a paralyzing fear of not being ready or missing something or of the unknown.
Maybe you are someone who packs light and is ready to go at any time on the new adventure calling, the new shining thing/opportunity presenting itself. You are curious and might be addicted to adrenaline or the excitement of the new beginning.
If so, you might get lost along the way, finding the shiny new beginning not so shiny anymore and losing interest. You might start wondering why you are going where you are going and doing what you are doing and then follow the next shiny opportunity which makes you spread yourself thin and forget about who you are and what you are about.
Or are you the kind of adventurer that regularly checks with your inner compass to see not only which journey is calling but to see which path is yours to step on? You pack what you need as well as your gifts and talents because you know what they are.
You know about the mystery, and the unknown and you also know that you are not alone, you have access to guidance and you always have your inner compass to refer to when you feel lost.
So what kind of adventurer are you?
Personally, I am a little bit of all of them, I travel on the path, then I go on the side looking in, wondering if the path is right, doubting, feeling not enough. My fear of not being enough makes me take classes after classes to know more, to be better, it also makes me hold back and stay in my comfort zone. It makes me not step fully on the path but walking very alertly and on the side of the path looking in.
I am also very attracted to anything shiny and glittery so I can get easily distracted. But then, when I connect with my inner guidance, my fire gets awakened ,and I am back on the path trusting, witnessing the synchronicity, being grounded and open to new insights, new perspective,s and magic. It feels pretty darn good there!
Honestly, knowing yourself is immensely helpful. Knowing how you think, what stories are operating in the background that influence the decisions you make, the actions you take, and how you show up in the world is invaluable when living an intentional life.
My next questions for you are:
Are you the adventurer you would like to be?
If not, what needs to change?
What do you need to put in place to become that adventurer?
What has been calling you to bring into reality? What have you been putting off that is time to feed, nurture, and give space for? What is ready to be birthed through you? Or maybe, you have been on your path but feeling stuck and you don’t feel the fire you once felt? Hopefully, this article will help you get to the next step of your journey.
January is such a great symbolic time representing a new beginning, new possibility, and new potential. It’s that time of year… at least in the north when the pace slows down so you have time to do some dreaming and visioning, to take a breath and assess where you are, where you want to go and make a plan to make it happen. It’s a time to make some adjustments if you’ve been walking on your path but are feeling down… what do you need to do to rekindle the spark?
Here are a few steps to help you get started on your journey or reconnected to your calling:
Step 1 Vision into the future.
What does your amazing future self do five years from now? One year from now?
Step 2 Remember to feel
As often as possible, reconnect with the feelings of your fulfilled future self, bring them into your present. By doing that you are letting the future create your present… isn't it an interesting paradox: The future creates the present AND the present creates the future. It's both!
Step 3 Break it down into steps
Write down your vision and break it down into daily steps… you could totally keep connecting with your awesome future self in order to receive the steps from her. Or you could be really practical and do some reverse engineering with your vision:
Step 4 Use a tool that will help you stay focus.
This year, I am trying a focus planner… so far it’s very helpful keeping me on track. You could also create a group of people where you meet every other week or every month and you keep each other accountable. I personally use a focus planner and it is so helpful to me to stay focus. I have a tendency to lose focus and go from one thing to the other. I want this year to be different… I want to try a new way of being: Laser Focused! We'll see how it goes!
Step 5 Create your own Vision Board
It will energetically support your creative process of bringing into your reality the life you want to live, the life that your future self is already living! Here's one of mine from some years ago. If you are not sure how to make a vision board, do a search online, it's easy. It can also be very fun to gather with friends or your family and enjoy a couple hours of dreaming, laughing, and creating!
Step 6 Keep breathing
Do not forget to keep breathing along the way, be aware of the parts of you that want to keep you small, in fear, and stay where you are. Talk to these parts of you, redirect your attention to the empowered parts, towards your future self who is already living that wonderful life!
If you are curious about why using your future self as a partner is powerful, look into my online course. It doesn’t involve painting and I explain the principles behind this method.
