Creating a New Vision for Your Dreams
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking out new lands, but in having a new vision. – Marcel Proust
Lately it seems that everyone I speak to is unhappy because they are not living the life of their dreams. Have you found yourself feeling unhappy, fatigued, or apathetic? Well, Spring is almost here, and this is a wonderful time to make changes and bring new energy into your life.
Spring is an excellent time to look at your life and your goals. If you are not happy, start changing what you don’t like into what you do like. The best place to start is by cleaning clutter our of your life, and finishing up tasks you’ve been avoiding. Clutter and unfinished business sap energy, and they make it difficult to take new steps. It’s amazing how quickly new things can come into our lives when we release the old. For example, a friend of mine cleaned out her laundry room and the next day, in came a new puppy! This works on all levels.
If you haven’t been feeling very energetic, you might consider a short fast, or a change in your diet. This can help free up any stuck energy and create more vitality. Then go outdoors and take a walk…or on a larger scale, take a sabbatical from work if you can.
No matter how much time you have available, creating some quiet moments for yourself helps you to recognize and change what you’re not happy with in your life.
Listen to the answers that come from within you, be inspired and start to do what it is that you really want to be doing. If you need more insight into what it is you really want (or what is preventing you from having it), you might want to begin a meditation program. Meditation is an excellent way to know and understand yourself in a deeper way. And it gives you a tool to release old energies and beliefs…and gain clarity about what it is you want to create.
A client of mine wanted to become vice president at her company for many years but was passed over each time the position became available. Then she started working with the meditation series “Manifesting Your Heart’s Desire.” Through this work, she released the internal beliefs that were preventing her from taking the step she really wanted. Soon after, she was promoted, and is now enjoying her new position as Vice President.
Enjoy the energy of the Spring Equinox.
