How to design a daily practice to intentionally create what you want that works for YOU!
Today I want to talk to you about designing your own daily practice and why it’s so important when you’re trying to manifest something. In fact, it’s a must have! Because you have to generate the focus you need to bring that awesome dream of yours into reality.
Have you ever heard the saying ‘thoughts become things’? And it’s true for both positive and negative thoughts. What you think about the most, you see the most. So if you constantly think you’re lacking in something, the you’ll just continue to experience more of that lack!
Let’s use money as a quick example. Usually when we don’t have the money or security we crave, we spend the majority of our time thinking about NOT having it. Thoughts like, ‘I never have enough money, I’m always broke, how am I going to get more money’ etc. consume us. We end up continuing to experience not having enough money because it’s exactly what we focus on! Take stock of your own thoughts. How much do you spend thinking of the things you don’t want? It can be difficult to accept that we’re also responsible for creating the negative stuff in our life. But when we are willing to take radical responsibility and own it, we begin to create a new experience.
Now, it’s one thing to hear and understand this principle and then another to actually intentionally bring this into your life and make a commitment to change your negative thought patterns. It takes practice and exactly why a daily practice is needed, think of it as a workout for your thoughts! So, let’s get started, shall we.
First, go back to that awesome goal you want to manifest. The one thing that you absolutely need in your mindset practice is something that helps you connect with what you truly desire. I call this ‘tuning in’. Spend some time thinking about what it would be like to have it and experience it in your life. Ask yourself this, ‘What would my life actually look like if I had this in my life’? This question will generate some positive thoughts, affirmations, and feelings, write ALL of them down. These are the thoughts you’ll use in your daily practice to replace the old negative ones!
Next, commit to tuning into these thoughts every day. Sticking with a daily practice can be a challenge (just like going to the gym!). So you want to choose a mindset practice that will work for you. Do you like journaling and writing out what you want to manifest? Or are visualizations a better fit? Maybe you like to read your affirmations, or create a mind movie? The point is, it doesn’t matter how you tune in to your goal, just that you do it. The tuning in, IS the daily practice because you are spending time breaking up the negative thought patterns (which bring a negative experience) and replacing them with positive ones, aligned with your desire!
Finally, once you’ve figured out what works for you, visualisations, writing, guided meditations, affirmations or whatever it is. Commit to following it for at least 40 days and see if you can see the evidence that your thoughts are changing. Track your progress! Create an ‘evidence’ list and write down all the new things that start to happen that are more in alignment with your goal. Don’t forget to track the little things too, it all counts and contributes to your belief that you CAN create what you desire.
I’d love to hear what you’re manifesting in your life, comment below and share it with me!
