“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” – Howard Thurman
Spiritual Warriors! Welcome to our new Life Tools newsletter.
Our passion is the wind that flies us forward to fulfill our dreams; and saying “Yes!” to life is how we open our wings! So let’s shift our lives right now. Here are the five steps to awakening passion in your life, getting back your groove, and sparking your mojo!
Step 1) – Start your day with a bit of stillness and silence; and throughout the day introduce a pattern interrupt. Ideally, you have a morning stillness & silence practice. A morning meditation using the ritual of Rise Pee Meditate. Or you are listening to one of my free meditations which has at least 5 minutes of sweet silence to create the trajectory of inner peace. Throughout the day, whenever you feel stressed, overwhelmed, or constricted, use my 16 second technique.
Step 2) – When you are done, write down 3 things that make you feel giddy, joyful, or happy. Don’t think about it. Place your hand on your heart, close your eyes, go back in time and stop when you feel yourself smiling. What were you doing? Write it down! Do that 3 times.
Step 3) – Shake your body, move your body, celebrate your body. Dance, run, walk, asana, pilates, swim, make love, jump around for at least 5 minutes (ideally longer) – but do something. And don’t forget to celebrate your flesh temple – the gray hair, the wrinkle that just came to visit, new muscles, new jiggles, new areas that need tweezing, new parts of your body you’ve just discovered. It’s the only body you’ll ever have. So don’t compare – be grateful.
Step 4) – Reach out to your front row –surround yourself with people who like you, love you, support you, root for you. Identify your cheerleaders and feel the love! Thank them for being in your corner.
Step 5) – Do Something BIG – out of your comfort zone – surf, hike, take an exciting trip, join me for Thanksgiving on the Mexican Riviera, get in your car and watch the sunset, go out with no socks on! Do something different – change up your routine!
