As creators of our world, one of the biggest tasks we face in this human experience is to learn how to work the magic of the universe to make things happen. To have dreams and to go about bringing them into our reality.
As many of us are beginners in the field, with thousands of years of conditioning, persuading
us that we are “dealt the hand we are given” and that fate will determine our destiny, the notion that we are in control of our lives and the experiences that we have puts us in an exciting but challenging position.
On one hand we understand that our thoughts and feelings create our reality and we excitedly go about dreaming up our life’s plans, but on the other hand, we have a huge amount of old school mental baggage to contend with and embedded subconscious thoughts that oppose the concept, making it a potentially incredibly frustrating and at times a seemingly impossible task.
To harmonise your thoughts with your feelings, with your actions with your words, with your subconscious to the very vision that you are setting out to achieve and holding onto that vision with quiet expectation of it’s manifestation without attachment to the outcome– phew it’s a tricky, very subtle, yet very complex skill to develop. But one I believe can be made simpler by following a few simple steps.
And as many of those that have achieved great things before us, the happy, successful, healthy and blissful people that shine the way for us have shown, it really is possible and I have dedicated my life to working out a way to make it all a much more fun and easy process- because in my opinion, it really wasn’t meant to be a struggle and it really is our most natural state of being, we have simply forgotten.
The skill of Goal Setting and the central role of goal setting in the coaching practice is really just a wonderful tool to use when manifesting and creating your life to be full of joy and abundance. It provides structure and the ability to track progress and skilfully move through space and time with a clear vision of where you are headed.
When one masters the art of setting goals and using the universal laws of metaphysics to create and manifest wonderful energies into your life, your life truly becomes a fairy tale full of magic and moment by moment heavenly experiences.
This is our birth right and we just need to re-learn and re-member the skills of manifesting once again to really take control of our lives and goal setting is a valuable tool in this process.
So here is a little step by step, 5 point process that I, personally as a veteran of various negative thought processes and behaviours and professionally as a Personal Transformation Coach have put together for you, to make setting your 2015 goals and intentions a little bit more like fun and helping your make sure they actually materialise and become part of your world…
There is also a little gift at the end from me to make the process easy, enjoyable with a splash of vibrancy thrown in for the fun of it…
1) Spend some time Getting Crystal Clear on what you want. In life. In the next year. In every day moment to moment. Ask yourself:
What is the most important thing in life for me? What do I value the most? If I had all the money in the world what would I spend most of my time doing? If I only had 6 months left, with all the money and energy in the world, what would I spend my time doing?
Become absolutely clear on what you really value in life.
If you have dreams and are pursuing goals in your life that are not congruent with your true values, you will never achieve them and if you do, you will never be truly happy.
Get out of your head and be directed by your heart. Forget what other people want you to do. Forget what you think you SHOULD do and really connect with your Higher Self and see what your Soul wants you to do. That’s where your happiness can be found.
2) Work with the Law of Attraction in moving yourself towards your vision and your vision to yourself.
How do you do this?
By tuning into the feeling of having achieved your goals. Whatever it may be, to lose weight, find peace of mind, be more abundant, find the love of your life… Take some time to meditate and bathe yourself in the feelings it will give you once you have achieved your desires.
Be careful not to find and focus on the feeling of NOT having what you are wishing for, as this will only manifest more of the feeling of lack and want. You want to imagine with all of your being that you already have that which you wish for and really explore how it makes you FEEL.
How will having financial freedom; more vitality; love; success; meaningful relationships; a beautiful body; peace of mind make you feel? Excited? Full of zest for life? Confident?
What will it mean you have more of? Fun? Time? Laughter? Affection? Love?
How do you feel when you take yourself to the time when you have achieved your goals?
This is what you are to project to the universe and bring forth into your energy field and into your reality.
By filling your energy field with the feelings that you will get from having your dreams you are attracting the same energies from the universe. By the law of metaphysics if you hold onto that feeling in everyday life, you will experience more and more things to give you that feeling.
I have recently had the pleasure of finding Abraham Hicks and the most poignant teaching I have ever absorbed was to simply “Feel good, and see what happens; feel good, and see what happens; feel good, and see what happens; feel good, and see what happens…” Continue feeling good about life and see what happens- it is truly incredible what happens when you follow this simple rule.
Always be conscious of yourself as a projector upon the universe– whatever you are thinking and feeling you will manifest, so just make sure it’s good!
3) Make peace with your goals and dreams. Learn to replace stress, panic, overwhelm, desperation and impatience with a calm knowing that your dreams are already waiting for you and you are moving gracefully through time and space to meet them.
As Deepak Chopra states in his book The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, spending time in nature, connecting to the silence and feeling the field of pure potential is where your manifesting powers are most potent. Connect to this beautiful place and sew your seeds of intention. Trust the universe that your dreams are coming your way and act each day with gratitude for what you already have and the journey that you are on.
When you hold your vision in your heart and open your Self to be ready and prepared to receive what you desire, you are allowing the universe to pour itself into your life. Do not frantically search for the answers, just know that they are there in the vortex and that they are on their way to you.
Love the process and your life will unfold with Love.
4) Check in with your goals each day. Re-mind yourself of what you are aiming for each day and ensure that each step you take is inspired and congruent with your overall goals and dreams.
Review your goals each month. Celebrate your successes over the previous month and give yourself credit for the progress you are making.
The New Moon is a fantastic time to do this, as with each New Moon, you have a clean slate to which you can set new intentions. To read more about how the New Moon empowers your intentions and gives energy and momentum to the blooming of ideas with the coming full moon read my LinkedIn Articles here.
I hold a “New Moon Intentions Party” for one each month where I meditate on the month ahead and set my goals and intentions into motion. I find it an incredibly powerful and beautiful occasion and it gives me great pleasure ticking off those goals I achieve each month. And great comfort knowing I can try again the coming month for those not quite realised.
5) Be organised and have structure to stay on track and keep motivated. Ensure that you prioritise and spend your time and energy wisely to find the easiest and quickest route to achieving your goals. It is said that it is in only 20% of the activities that we carry out that 80% of the work is done. Find or create structures and processes that work for you that will allow you to find flow and simplicity in manifesting your dreams.
When you are clear and confident in what you are doing and your heart knows that it is right, it will not be a struggle, it will be easy, fun and magical!
