And now Step 3 from the powerful ideas of The Wellness Warrior…
Sit down and meditate on your vision. Call it in.
What does this mean? Sounds real “froo froo” as I like to call it. But, from a positive point of view this is an excellent way to envision what it is that you want to inspire and create.
I dedicate time to do this 5 days a week. I actually have it in my iPhone calendar to ensure that I am reminded to do it. This is time that I sit quietly, with no distractions like TV, podcasts, Facebook, etc and simply think deeply about what my vision is. Nearby is my trusty Blue Sparkly Notebook, ready and waiting to take down ideas. If it’s in the evening, I light a few candles, close the curtains in the room I’m in and make sure I have a nice cup of tea (Earl Grey is my preference!) sitting next to me. Also, for some reason I like to sit on my yoga mat while I’m meditating/thinking about my vision.
By taking this time, creating this space and meditating on what I want, things are coming to fruition in regard to my health and fitness business. I can truly see them taking shape and I can see myself hitting the ground running once I arrive home next week.
It is sometimes difficult to just take the time to sit and think. Or sit and meditate. Or sit and envision what it is that YOU want for your life. However, the rewards for that 5 minutes of time, even if only once or twice a week are astounding!
Do you give yourself quiet time every once in a while to just sit and ponder your vision in life?
Positive Affirmation: I am attracting EVERYTHING I desire!
I actually have just started doing this with my little lunch breaks. They give me time just to be quiet and listen to the things inside me that I’m always “too busy” to hear.
Susan, what an awesome way to spend lunch 🙂
I like sitting on my deck, looking at the backyard, or on the beach…just need to create more time to do this…
Cindy, just like crating time to do tri training, creating time to vision is important. That’s why I do little 5 minute bursts. Sometimes, if. Get the brain juices flowing it turns into 10 🙂
Meditating for me has been a real challenge. I sit down, try to concentrate, and … “you are wasting time!” my inner voice starts to nag! “If you want to do something for yourself, at least move your but! Don’t just sit there” … I try to answer “Leave me alone, this is for my brain and mental health”, but in the end the two voices inside of me end up fighting with me as a bystander who doesn’t have a say in the matter! 😉
Lol, I totally get that! You can download (for free!) guided meditations. I have an app on my iPhone and can pick ny length of time I want. That really helps me to focus and to shut the voices up inside my head 😀
Very Martha Beck… Steering By Starlight, I think. I was doing this every day last winter. Almost made it to a month, (as recommended), before I lost focus. I am going to try again. Writing down what I envision may have been the step that I was missing. I love this idea. It is so powerful. Thanks for getting me back on track.
I’m going to look that book up! I think envisioning really makes the difference! I’ll keep an eye out on your blog for a post about your progress 🙂
I am still on step 1. I will be getting here! 🙂
