Have a goal you've been thinking about but can't find the 'right' time to start? Got some old limiting beliefs you need to let go of? Well, the universe has your back this very moment! Today we have a cosmic triple whammy on our side.
What is this? Glad you asked. Today is the first of March, it's also the start of a new season plus, tonight is a full moon. Boom! Cosmic triple whammy. If you want to set some kickass goals, start something new, clear some emotional backlog, ditch an old habit or set some beautiful new intentions, now is the time.
A new month is the perfect opportunity to start afresh. Think of your mind like a business thinks of their accounts. At the end of each month they clear any outstanding debts, total up the month's revenue and set their new goals for the month ahead.
A new season is our chance to de-clutter our lives. Just like at the end of each season we clear out our wardrobe. We throw out anything that's old or that doesn't look or feel right anymore, leaving space for all those gorgeous new-season outfits we're going to buy. Think of this as your chance for a spring clean for your soul, if you will.
Lastly, a full moon brings with it an incredibly powerful energy. It's a time of positive energy if you use it correctly. It can increase your positive energy or conversely, it can wreak havoc on your emotions. Since the full moon pours down a tremendous amount of energy, you must be in a calm state of mind to receive a positive effect. Remember that whatever is going on in your body, mind and spirit will be amplified.
You don't have to be a NASA scientist, an astronomer or astrologist to appreciate the awe inspiring beauty of a full moon. Even if lunar energy isn't your thing, sometimes simply looking up and noticing that we are part of something much, much bigger can help to get a little perspective.
Now don't panic if you don't read this until after the 1st March. This beautiful, bright shining energy will still be kicking around for a few days yet and the full moon cycle actually lasts 5 days (2 days before, 1 during and two after) so you've got all weekend to really sit with what it is you want and let it bubble up inside you.
Want to know how to harness all this awesome cosmic energy and take action? Read on my friend. Here's 5 steps setting intentions and goals that will set your soul on fire.
1. Clear the clutter
The mental clutter that is. Find a quiet space to meditate, take a long walk in nature or a yoga class. Anything that will help you to be calm, centred and reenergised.
2. Dream big!
Now is not the time to think small. You've got the universe on your side, remember? Think about what it is that you REALLY want. It doesn't even matter if you don't have a clue how you'll get there, your subconscious mind will begin to take the necessary steps towards it.
3. Get super specific
Now that we've got the big dream, it's time to really hone in on what that looks like, feels like, sounds like. For example: 'I want to go on a holiday' isn't going to cut it. Instead try something like this;
'It is March 2019 & I am boarding the Star Princess cruise liner on a trip to the Bahamas with my family. I can hear the seagulls and the booming horn of the cruise ship, I feel the sun on my skin and the sand under my feet. I can hear the laughter of my children (or the pounding music of the on board nightclub, depending on how old or young you are) and the sound of the Caribbean band playing. I can see the city pull away and fade over the horizon as we pull out to sea.'
See how much more real and tangible this feels?? I can seriously see myself sipping a Pina Colada on a deckchair on this boat right now!
4. Take action
I don't mean book the holiday. This can be a small action like, opening up an account dedicated to your holiday fund. Signing up for some travel emails or buying a Lonely Planet guide. The more you surround yourself with positive reinforcements for your dreams and goals the more real they will feel.
Want a raise? Ask for it!
Want to get fitter? Join the gym, walk in the door and surround yourself with positive role models.
Want to write a novel? Start with a sentence.
5. Trust, baby
I want you to say this to yourself. 'The universe will give me everything I need, all I need to do is ask.' This is the part where we just let go and trust that we really can have everything we want, all we need to do is to get clear, call it down and really BELIEVE it will happen. Every time you think about your goal and start to freak out a little (cause that happens believe me) just stop, breathe and say to yourself 'The universe will give me everything I need, all I need to do is ask' or whatever version of that feel right for you.
I'm sure we all know the story of Jim Carey and the $10M cheque? He was a down and out actor, barely able to make a living but just knew he was going to make it. So he wrote himself a cheque for $10,000,000 'for acting services rendered' and kept it in his wallet. That cheque sat in his wallet for close to 10 years and ver nearly disintegrated, but 10 years later he booked Ace Ventura and made $10M! Now we're not all going to become millionaires (unless that's what you REALLY want, in which case, see steps 1-4) but if you really, truly believe in your vision or goal, you CAN have it.
Now get out there and get creating! Sending you all the love, light, positive energy and hippy-dippy vibes I can muster.
