Ever since the popularity of books such as Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill and Deepak Chopra’s Seven Spiritual Law of Success, more and more people are beginning to accept the fact that we create our own reality. Whether good or bad, we are the manifestors of the events we experience in our life.
Simple shifts in consciousness can have massive effects on our health, relationships, success and life as a whole.
Here are few great strategies to transform your life for the better:
Create a vision board
This is a simple and super fun technique that the whole family can enjoy.
What you will need:
- A large board or boards (any old cardboard box will do)
- Glue stick or some elmer’s glue
- Magazine’s – Check out your local library or grab up some free magazines or get some out of storage.
- Copies of photos of family and friends
- Look through magazines and cut out images of things you want to manifest in your life. It can be vacation spots you want to visit, your dream home and car, people you want around you more often and anything else you want to experience. Be mindful of how these images make you feel. Do they bring about feelings of joy and excitement for the future? What are the expressions on the faces of the images you choose? This is going to be something that you will look at frequently so make sure it brings about feelings of joy and possibility for you future life.
- Cut out words and phrases that bring about feelings and thoughts of satisfaction. Affirmation words are great like ‘Happiness’, ‘Success,’ ‘Joy’, ‘Abundance’ are all good. Even quotes or poems that touch your heart can be a good addition.
- Paste images, copies of photos, and words on the board in a creative way.
- Put it somewhere you will look everyday – next to your bed, in your home office, or even try framing it to put up as a work of art in your living room.
- Look at it each day and believe that the experiences on the board will happen to you soon.
Write your own epitath
What will the mark you leave on the world be? How will you affect change in the world and in those you love? Who will you have spent your life with and how were they affected by your presence? What character qualities do you possess and how will you be remembered? Your ‘epitath’ can be a few sentences or a few short paragraphs of who you want to strive to be – your very best and highest self. Don’t be modest. We have to strive toward our best self and always look to grow and evolve. You can even make use of archetypes that stand out to you. Ancient Egypt’s ‘Ma’at’, the Goddess of truth, justice, balance and divine order. Or Hathor, the Goddess of Love, beauty, music and motherhood. Expand your mind to make room for what you could possibly become.
If you want more of something good – be thankful for it. Every night before you go to bed, recall the day. What were the things you experienced throughout the day that you are thankful for? Who are the people you appreciate most? The more grateful we are, the more we bring those positive things into our life.
If we constantly complain about the things that we don’t want, chances are they will appear frequently in our experience.
Focus on what you do have, be it small or great, and make way for more awesome things in your life from these simple exercises!
