A Message from The Universe

As I was meditating this morning, a message came to me and I was encouraged to share:

Enjoy and do with it what you will.

Have a happy healthy day.

What Do YOU Deserve?

When working with clients (and even with myself), I find one of the biggest blockages to successfully achieving our goals is that we do not truly believe we deserve them.

Many of us seem to suffer from what I like to call, Who Do You Think You Are Syndrome.

For example, you say, “I want financial freedom” or “I want to be a millionaire.” But then you start thinking:

“Who do you think you are? You’re no Bill Gates!”

“Who do you think you are? You’re not smart, creative, well connected, etc. enough to become a millionaire.”

“Who do you think you are? Your family never had money.”

OR

You want to lose some weight, but then those thoughts creep in:

“Who do you think you are? You’ve always been overweight.”

“Who do you think you are? Your whole family is fat.”

“Who do you think you are? You can’t exercise 3 days a week.”

Somewhere though our life we have created a belief that we don’t deserve to be wealthy, healthy, loved, happy, have a job we enjoy, and so on. So we dream big, but never achieve that dream because after all we don’t deserve it (or so we tell ourselves).

The best way I have found to start dissolving this belief is with a little exercise designed to remind us we are deserving of EVERYTHING we desire. Here’s how it works:

Every day for the next 2 weeks (or longer) set a timer for 3 minutes. During that 3 minute period write down everything you think you deserve, from the littlest molecule of oxygen to $100,000,000. Write down anything that pops into your head, don’t think about it and do not dismiss it. It came to you for a reason. You may find this exercise a little tough the first few days, especially if you have a significant case of Who Do You Think You Are Syndrome, but I assure you it will get easier each day.

To help you get started here are a few ideas:

  • I deserve to be wealthy.
  • I deserve to be loved.
  • I deserve to live in a safe neighborhood.
  • I deserve healthy food.
  • I deserve the time to take care of myself
  • I deserve to be happy.
  • I deserve a Ferrari.
  • I deserve respect.
  • I deserve to treat others as I want to be treated.
  • I deserve career I love.
  • There are literally 1000s of things you deserve, take the time each day to write them down. See how creative you can get. Have fun, enjoy taking the time for yourself, and most of all BELIEVE you deserve all good things!
  • Until next time have a happy healthy day!

    Tuesday Tip of the Week – Review Your Goals

    Welcome to week #8 of 2018, the week when most “New Years resolutions” become a distant memory.

    So, what about you?

    Are you sticking to the goals you set for yourself this year?

    Do you even remember the goals you boldly set for 2018?

    This week is a great time to recommit to your goals. If you have not written out your goals, get them on paper. Next, set a reminder on your calendar to review your goals on a regular basis.  You can decide how often you review your goals but read them over at least once per month.

    Once you have reviewed your goals, ask yourself, “Am I taking action to achieve my goals on a regular basis”?  Any action, however small, gets you a step closer to what you want to achieve.  Even baby steps are better than no steps.  However, if you are not paying attention to your goals life may get in the way and you might forget to take those steps.

    I review my goals every 5 days.  I read each one and ask myself what I have done over the past few days to move closer toward successful achievement of the goal.

    You do not have to be taking action on every goal every week.  For example, one of my goals is to take a painting class this year.  It is not a high priority goal and so I have been focusing my attention on my financial and career goals.  But, each week when I review my goals I see my painting class goal and am reminded that it is on my 2018 “to do” list.  Had I not committed it to paper and if I was not reviewing it regularly more likely than not it would not get done.

    If you are serious about sticking to the goals you set for yourself this year, recommit to them by writing them down and reviewing them regularly.  Take action, even if it is just a tiny step, and your success is assured.

     

    Need help recommitting or acting on your goals?  I can help you create an action plan that will get you moving in the right direction.  Email me at achievewellness@ymail.com for a complimentary 15 minute consultation.

    You Are Who You Are…

    The experiences of your life, both good and bad, shape who you are.  To feel anger, sadness, regret, or hatred about those experiences means you must feel some level of those feelings about yourself.

    In order to truly love and feel good about yourself, you must acknowledge and accept the negative experience as much as the positive ones.

     You do not need to be thrilled about them and you don’t have to dwell on or repeat them, but you do need to embrace and be grateful for the lessons they taught you, for without them you would not be you!

    The Power of “IS/ARE” statements

    A few months ago, I wrote about the power of, “I AM” statements.  In that post, I suggested you use “I AM…” statements to help you powerfully manifest the life of your dreams.  In the eyes of The Universe, “I am” statements are statements of fact.  Whatever you say you are is what you are, as far as The Universe is concerned.  As a result, consciously making empowering, “I AM” statements can help shape and define your life.

    The great thing about “I am” statements is you can use them to help improve your relationships with the people around you.  When you say things like, “We are…” or “They are…” you also call into existence more of the corresponding qualities.

    For example, if you are talking about your coworkers and you say, “WE ARE a terrific team!”  You create an even better and more cohesive team.  Or in relation to your spouse, “He/She IS loving and supportive”, you are guaranteed to create even more love and support.

    Remember, these types of statements do not need to be true NOW, they simply need to be positive beliefs you choose to manifest,

    To be clear, “They are”, “He/she is”, or “We are” statements are not about changing other people.  We have no power to manifest or force change on others nor should we try.  Instead, these types of statements reframe our views or beliefs about the relationship with these individuals.  As you begin to react differently and more positively to the relationship the other person/people may also begin to react in a more positive way.  Or they may not.  Either way you will be in a better frame of mind and your inner peace and positivity are all that matter when it comes to achieving your dreams.

    “Is/Are” statements are not an end all cure all.  If your boss acts like a jerk or your spouse is abusive, using “Is/Are” statements most likely will not miraculously make the situation better, but they may help you manifest a space for yourself that makes your life tolerable until you can create a plan to move on.

    Now that you are aware of the power of, “IS/ARE” statements, think about some of the relationships your would like to reinforce or improve and then write down a few statements to support what you want to create.

    Feel free to share your statements below to help inspire and motivate other readers.

    Until next time:
