Today is Day 12 of the 21 Days Gentle Journey.
Today I am inviting you to reflect again on the power of attention in connection with living an authentic life.
We know that we attract to our lives what we most think and feel. Thoughts become things. Like attracts like. What we focus on is what we receive. What we focus on expands. We attract what we think most. We attract what we put our attention on.
I invite you to visit that deep, sacred place inside yourself, that place of quiet and stillness, that place of silence and rest, and listen what the Universe wants from you and has reserved for you. Listen. What you are meant to be and do will be revealed to you. Once this has been revealed, you have a choice: you can accept your call to adventure and launch yourself on your hero’s journey, or refuse it.
You know that accepting the call is the right thing to do, the best decision you will ever make in your entire life.
Imagine the grandest version of yourself doing what you have been called to do. Put yourself in motion to be and do what your heart is telling you. Focus on manifesting your true, authentic self, the magnificent being you know you came here to be.
I encourage you to practice, over and over again, to put your attention on the “splendid you” that you are called to manifest. Many times during the day bring to your mind the image of yourself being your best self, doing what you do best, loving what you do, and blessing the world with it. Bring this image to your conscious mind and feel how good it feels. And do it as often as possible. That’s where your focus should always be. Do this and be prepared for manifesting something much bigger than anything you ever imagined for yourself.
Have an as-clear-as-possible vision of your best self. Don’t come up with any excuses for your true self not coming true. Feel how good it feels to be your best self. Believe that manifesting this magnificent being will be good to you and to the world, and will not harm anyone. Don’t worry about the ‘how,’ how your vision will become reality; this is in the hands of the Universe. Feel confident that magic helpers will come to help you manifest your highest self once you put yourself in motion to live your hero’s journey. Now, detach from the results and be ready to accept whatever the Universe brings you.
Doing all this will bring a sense of meaning and fulfillment to your existence that is priceless, and will bless you with goodness and abundance.
Remember, “I attract what I put my attention on. My attention attracts my desires.”
Now, let’s start this day with gentleness, gratitude, a disposition to release what is holding us back, and a commitment to allow our highest selves to come to light, just as we did yesterday. Let us make of this a healthy habit.
So here are some affirmations for today, but before reciting them, you know what to do: sit down, close your eyes for a few moments, breathe in and out gently, and go to the center of your being. Once you experience that soothing peace within, say to yourself with conviction and firm commitment:
- Just for today, I will sit quietly, in a room, alone.
- Just for today, I will reflect on “Who am I? What do I love? How do I live knowing that I will die? What is my gift to the family of the Earth?”
- Just for today, I will remember who I am and what I am here to do.
- Just for today, I will do what I know I am being called to do.
- … and I will do all this while being extremely gentle with myself.
Enjoy your gentle journey along peaceful ways!
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. ~ Aristotle
