Do you want to shift your life?
I am talking about real, radical and practical shifts that you can actually apply to your every day life. I am talking about change in such a profound way that you feel awakened, loved, supported and guided as you move through your journey.
Since writing on Forever Conscious, I have thought a lot about what people really need to do to turn their life around. I have also thought a lot about the methods that I have used to turn my life around.
While everyone’s journey is different, it really seems that time and time again, it comes down to addressing these four very important questions —
1.) What is the most supportive thing I can do for myself right now?
Take a moment to ask yourself this question. What is one supportive thing that you can do for yourself right now? It doesn’t have to be big, it doesn’t have to be grand, even the smallest supportive act can make a world of difference in your day.
Do you need to sit down for a moment? Do you need a cup of tea? Do you need to watch a funny cat video? Do you need to believe in yourself and what you are doing?
Try to keep your answer focused on the present moment. When you have your answer, go and do it. Make it a priority to support yourself throughout the day by asking yourself this question regularly.
If you want to shift your life, ask yourself this question at least four times a day and act on your answer every time. In less than a week you will start to notice profound changes.
2.) If I truly and absolutely loved myself, what would I do or tell myself in this situation?
We all should really love ourselves deeply, but many of us don’t or many of us forget the importance of self-love. By asking yourself this question, it allows you to approach all of your life decisions from a deeper place of love.
Get still for a moment and ask yourself this question, if I really deeply and madly loved myself, what would I say to myself? If you struggle with this, think of someone in your life that you love deeply. Imagine that they are you for a moment, what advice would you offer them?
One of the most powerful and profound changes you can make in your life is to love, accept and trust yourself. Once you build up that foundation, the rest of your life will fall into place, guaranteed.
3.) What do I need to take responsibility for in my life?
You and only you are responsible for your life. You are responsible for your thoughts, your actions and the words that come out of your mouth. You are responsible for the energy that you send out into the world. When you take responsibility for your life, you also claim something else- power.
When you are ready to take full ownership of your life, it allows you to step into your personal power so you can actually make practical changes to your life. When you take responsibility, it allows you to also see what is in your control and what is not in your control.
We cannot control every aspect of our lives, but by taking responsibility it allows us to focus on what we can change and what we have the power to change.
4.) What things/habits/feelings in my life are no longer serving me?
Get out a pen and paper and make a list of all the things, thoughts, feelings, relationships, emotions and habits that are no longer serving you. Keep writing until everything is out on paper.
When you look at your list, you may notice just one or two key things that are no longer serving you that seem to connect to everything else. Often when we address just one or two areas that are no longer serving us, the rest of it just takes care of itself.
Once you have narrowed down your list to one or two main things that are no longer serving you, see if you can find a way to shift or change things. The trick here is to keep it simple.
If the situation is not in your control, then perhaps it is best to work on bringing healing and acceptance to it. If the situation is in your control, ask yourself what small changes you need to make to support yourself through the process. If the situation is completely out of control, it may be that you need to release it from your life altogether.
You may also find that the other three questions can guide you to a solution.
By working with these four questions on a consistent basis, you will start to see amazing, magical and profound shifts taking place in your life. 🙂
