What a year it has been!!!
We have been through so much. A pandemic and a shut down of everything. We did kundalini yoga three times a week for months on zoom, we zoomed with our friends and family and school, we had turmoil in politics and a conscious light was shown on the racial inequalities of our society. It has been a year of growth and change. An awakening and deepening.
Let’s continue to take ourselves to the next level of growth.
How was the homework of observing where you are?
Are you where you want to be with your finances? Your career? Your relationships? Your health? Is one of these areas outstanding and one of them a tiny blip?
Well now, is the time to set your sights on what you want to accomplish in this area. Pick one or two and focus on what you want it to look like next year at this time!
As you describe it, with specific detail and clarity also ask yourself why? Why do you want to do that?
What will it mean to you to accomplish this?
Maybe you also see how far you have come since last year.
Take time to acknowledge yourself for that too.
Make a plan with actions to step into making this vision the reality. Plan those actions. Do something everyday toward that goal, that result, that vision. You can do it. You are here for so much more than you give yourself credit for. Jump into it. Go through the Monkey Mind of worry, doubt and fear by taking action. Especially when that voice gets loud. "Thank you for sharing Monkey Mind but I have this." I will do it.
Let this year, 2021 be the year to take off the brakes, to accelerate your dreams by bringing them into physical reality.
Love you all!! Thanks for being on this journey with me. I appreciate it so much.
Here we go. Ending 2020 with intention, energy, focus and clarity and jumping into 2021.
If you get in your car to go anywhere, the gps would require you to start with where you are. So this week I want you to work on where you are and next week we will work on where we want to go.
On the top of each page title what is important to you. Only one area of your life per page so you can brainstorm where you are, with honesty. Don’t beat yourself up or make it worse than it is. Just see it exactly as it is, period.
My health, my family life, my career, my finances, etc -- the places in your life that matter most to you. You will probably have 5, 6, 7 or so.
As you do this, you will start to observe things you may not have even thought about. Good things might pop into your head, "wow I really did take care of myself this year, I ate healthier, I exercised, I took time out for me (like Courtney talked about all year hahahah) and I lowered my stress.
Seeing where you are doesn’t mean it is negative, it is just seeing where you are. When you see you are doing something aligned with your intentions, acknowledge yourself for what is going great. This is important.
As you are writing where you are on each page, write one thing you appreciate about yourself in this area. Hint, even if seeing where you are is challenging. Find ONE thing that you can appreciate about yourself in that area.
That’s the homework.
Do it all in one sitting or do one here and there. But do it. Take inventory. You owe it to yourself to do this.
As I always say hahahaha, it always starts with you. If you don’t know where you are, if you haven’t put your oxygen mask on first, you can’t help anyone else.
Have fun with it. Put music on, get in a playful mood, let yourself go. If you are having a hard time writing stuff then do a few of my brain breaks and connect to your breath, bring yourself into your heart.
Your heart always knows the answer.
See you next week where we will take it to the next level!!!
Love you guys.
