Discover WHY you want what you want.
Think about what you want + ask yourself WHY you want it seven times, keep going deeper. You may find a core desire that applies to many areas of your life when you find your why.
I want more money. Money flowing to me without having to do anything.
Money is powerful but I don't want to work hard or do things I don't want to get it.
Because I want to feel free and supported just for existing.
I want to be able to say 'Yes' to everything I desire and enjoy this life.
I feel frustrated when the idea of something excites me but I can't experience it.
I believe I'm valuable and worthy just by existing.
I believe that I have something unique to offer the world and don't know how to get paid for it but still want the money it takes to do cool things.
I want to wake up everyday and feel at ease, optimistic, open to possibilities and free to be my magical self.
THERE IT IS! There's the real motivation and deeper desire! THAT'S powerful! Now THAT'S something you can begin to align with; you can cultivate those feelings, before the financial abundance appears. Aligning with how your deepest desires feel is more empowering because you can create it all inside right now, regardless of the physical manifestation. You'll need to remove old, limiting beliefs and resistance that block it but now you know where to begin.
Instead of waiting for more money to appear before you feel good. You can create the feelings you desire from that experience RIGHT NOW. Worst case, you get to feel good. Best case, by feeling good, you attract what you desire and it becomes a lovely compliment to your already good feeling life!
Feel how you desire to feel NOW.
You can begin to cultivate the feelings you desire NOW, before the manifestation appears. You no longer need something external to feel a certain way internally. You can cultivate UNCONDITIONAL happiness inside by changing your beliefs.
Can you wake you wake up and choose to feel at ease, optimistic, open to possibilities and free? If not, what are you believing? That it's not possible? That what you want has never been possible, for you or anyone you know? When you look at what is currently going on, it can be really hard to feel optimistic, that things could ever be different. Unfortunately, it is your focus on what currently is that is creating more of it.
This is why intention-setting in the Manifesting with the Moon Course is vital, you will create new thoughts to choose in the face of what is unwanted. You will build and strengthen new neural pathways instead of defaulting to the old beliefs that are creating your current reality. It takes time and consistent practice to build these new neural pathways and disconnect from the old, well-worn ones...but it is life-changing and worth it.
- Needing external things and people to be different before you feel good is a never-ending roller coaster ride of emotions.
- Believing every old worry and fear in your mind can feel like torture.
- Desiring things that you don't believe are possible has got to be the worst feeling in the world.
"Just as we can know the ocean because it always tastes of salt, we can recognize enlightenment because it always tastes of freedom."
- The Buddha
âPracticing unconditional inner peace is the path to feeling good. Follow what feels good, it is the greatest indication of your intuition. â
Raise your vibe across the board.
In intention-setting, you'll discover that by changing your beliefs and raising your vibe around one desire, you can positively affect an unrelated desire. A rising tide lifts all boats!
Intention - It felt difficult for me to know what I truly wanted, to listen to my intuition, when there were other people around. I'd feel like I was having a great time at an event but when I got home, I'd be overly exhausted. I'd note that I should have left sooner but didn't know why I was unaware of that earlier, in the moment. Each day I would align with my intention of being more connected to my intuition around other people and a very unexpected solution arrive around my seemingly unrelated Healthy Eating Intention...
Unexpected solution - One night, at home, I was enjoying a big plate of nachos while watching a movie. I felt full but they were so delicious that I kept eating. THIS is when I noticed that I DID subtly ask myself, "Do you want to keep eating?" and a small whisper said, "No, I'm done." but I kept eating!!! How was I supposed to hear my intuition, my inner voice, in a crowd if I wasn't listening to it alone, at home?! Whoa! By listening to myself more in quiet, solo moments...I could strengthen my ability to hear myself in busier ones! Thank you non-linearity for delivering that insight the exact way I needed to hear it.
If feeling good is the reason for a lot of your desires, connecting to feeling good unconditionally will support every intention in different ways.
Don't judge yourself for not feeling good.
This is a non-linear journey and you are in transition from who you've practiced being for YEARS to who you desire to be now. The best way to feel good on this journey is to release judgement and perfection. Don't let perceived detours mean failure, allow them to guide you and know you are exactly where you are meant to be. Get curious in each moment and adopt the belief that absolutely everything is FOR you. Even if it doesn't make sense right now, everything is still working out for you.
Practice feeling good in every moment.
Apply the yogic philosophy of Ahimsa to stay aligned with your root desires to feel good.
AHIMSA - Loving kindness (non-violence) in thoughts, speech and action
toward yourself and others.
Neutrally observing your mind in your daily meditation practice will help you detached from old, scary thoughts and to choose new ones. It will help you distance yourself from thinking you ARE your thoughts and getting tossed around by the swing of them.
Neutrally observing your thoughts takes practice; start with observing your actions, then your speech, then your thoughts. For example, don't slam the door when you're pissed, try not to scream at the distracted driver on the road and then - whoa - don't even judge your co-workers in your mind. See how it's a little easier to observe and control actions than thoughts? Give it a try and go easy on yourself as you build this new practice.
Create feel good, happy, loving vibes within and watch the world reflect who you are back to you.
No, this is not stuffing down your thoughts and feelings. This is a practice of observing yourself and witnessing whether how you think, talk and act match the life you desire.
Sometimes, you just gotta take it easy on yourself. Step away instead of trying to be sweet, perfect and calm. Forgive yourself when you do explode.
Shift from victim to empowered!
Turn, "Why did this happen to me?!?!" into "Why do I want what I want?"
Shift your focus from what is currently happening to what you would desire instead. The present moment has already manifested, where do you want to go from here? Instead of judging what you perceive is happening TO you, shift your focus back to what you want and FEEL how it feels in your body. Redirect your energy, momentum and focus back to what you want, remember that you are the powerful creator of your reality.
It is crucial to get comfortable with feeling good to release the unconscious addition to suffering and disempowerment. Blame and victimhood feel normal because you have practiced it the majority of your life, you were taught it by your family and culture. If you want things to be and feel different, you have to make different choices.
...Because wherever you go, there YOU are.
Know your power, take radical responsibility for your life, get curious instead of judgmental and cultivate an unconditional inner peace.
