As we begin the season of fall, it's a time to think of the new season as a fresh start. It's time to think of the turning of the weather as a turning within us. Many people get slightly sad or depressed once summer ends and the weather gets colder. But, one thing that we can do is think of it as more time to focus on ourselves and the inner work that we have to do. Because summer is full of activities and the warm weather can be distracting, we can often forget in the summer that there are things we need to focus on within ourselves. So as fall begins, think to yourself, what's missing? Or what needs work? Likely, you may also not know where to start, so as a starting point think of what you have been putting off. Instead of waiting for a New Year's resolution to get started on what you always put off, start it now. So whether it’s to have better health, heal relationship with family or yourself, start working on your passions or career, or to begin to date again, START NOW. Things that take work will feel the same if you start them now or if you wait. The sooner you begin your fresh start, the faster you will reach your new beginning. To encourage your fresh start, begin to visualize what that will look like at the success point. So if for example, if you need to work on healing the relationship with you mother then you could visualize what that may look like when it's healed. A healed relationship with you mother could look like you and her making Thanksgiving dinner together and laughing over a glass of wine in the kitchen of the house you grew up in. Whatever it is, picture it in your mind. The strongest way to begin to heal and motivate you is to come up with a strong visualization, and begin the work to reach that. Each day, when you work on what needs fixed remember that visualization. So as you begin your new season and new start, picture what you want to reach for and let the picture in your mind push you to that new beginning....
Whether you are 35, 25, or 55 there may come a moment in your life where you may realize you are not where you want to be. What's missing? Maybe, you never found your passion or true love. Regardless of what it is, it is never too late to find where you want to be. Our lives are built upon our decisions. But, that doesn't mean that it's too late to change the direction of our lives. Just because we made some bad decisions or have headed in directions we didn't plan to, doesn't meant that we are forever stuck in a place we don't want to be. Life is based on free will and at any moment we can choose to find our way to a better place. Take the time to find what will make your heart sing. What have you always wanted but didn't feel you deserved? Every person deserves to have happiness, a life purpose, and unconditional love from another person. Everything that we ever wanted is within reach, if we allow ourselves to reach for it, and believe we deserve it. Our life decisions or mistakes may have been based on outside influences or limiting beliefs that we learned from our childhood and environments that we exposed ourselves to. It's never to late to change your way of thinking, and change your limiting beliefs that hold you back. So, if you aren't where you want to be, remember that you are here on earth to make the best of your time, feel love, a purpose and happiness, and not to struggle or feel pain. You have the key to unlock your happiness; it just takes the confidence to turn the key. And it is never too late to try.
Your gut is typically what guides you when you get a sense that you should do something or that something feels right. Your mind however does not always coincide with what your gut wants for you. Your gut is telling you to question something or look for an interior motive on someone or something when it feels wrong. Or you gut is what tells to take that job or get to know that person better when you go on a date. Your gut is you antenna. The antenna (your gut) is what guides your life, and pulls it to the right frequency. The guide can direct you to the right frequency, but you may not always follow it. You have to learn to trust your guide. But how do you make yourself listen to that guide more often? How do you trust what is right? And how do you kick the negative voice out that steps in shortly after that tell you that you are wrong. The negative voices are your ego telling you to be fearful and that it can’t be true what your gut is telling you. But what is most true, is that the first thought that usually pops in your mind is your gut or your intuition, before the fear kicks in and says it’s a bad idea. The fear is telling you that it’s a bad idea because of all the negative stuff in your past, which is why this feeling in your gut can’t be trusted. The key is learning to be confident in what your gut tells you and to follow through in those feelings of righteousness. To not only follow it through, but not to look back. Often times when you haven’t followed your gut, doesn’t’ something bad happen instead? And then your initial gut feeling turns out being true in the end. Like for example, when your gut told you a person wasn’t right for you but you kept dating them anyways because you thought you could change them. And then dating them after 4 years, still later realize that they are not right for you. Learn to trust that feeling and keep moving. Stop questioning, and just do. When you learn to trust yourself, the right things will happen because you are following your natural path rather than fight it.
