Earth is a challenging place. There are wars, famines, crises, and hardships happening every moment of every day. But regardless of this, there is a way to elevate your life so you can float above the chaos.
There is a way to elevate your life so much so, that the world seems like a more magical, synchronistic, and loving place to be in.
Of course, hardships and troubles may still come your way, but by elevating your life, you will be able to deal with them quicker and with more ease. You will be able to resolve situations faster and maintain your inner balance.
It really all comes down to your level of perception. It’s all about what you choose to focus on. The higher you vibrate, the more you focus on the good, the easier and more joyous your life becomes.
By following these steps in just a few short days, you will start to see miraculous changes and shifts in your own life. You will start to float above the chaos and find a new meaning to the world around you.
Step 1: Develop a Meditation Practice
Even though meditating every day can take a lot of discipline, it really works! Even just sitting for 10 minutes can have a profound affect on your life.
It is best to meditate first thing in the morning or last thing at night, but fitting it in whenever you can is great.
Choose to either sit in a chair with your feet on the ground, or sit on the floor with your legs crossed. If you are sitting on the floor, use a cushion to prop your hips up so they are slightly higher than your feet.
As you meditate, focus on your breathing and try to not engage with your thoughts. If it helps do some breathing exercises, here a few you can try-
- Take 10 deep breaths, if you lose your focus start back at 1
- Breathe in for 4, hold for 4, out for 4
- Breathe in for 5, exhale for 7
- Imagine a glowing ball of white light in front of you and inhale this cleansing energy
You can also try reciting a mantra on repeat in your mind. My new book Pocket Mantras has heaps of mantras to chose from.
Set a timer for just 10 minutes to begin with and aim to do this every day. You will see results!
Step 2: Focus on What is Good
Life is not meant to be picture perfect. There is always going to be some struggle, some learning and some growing to do, but by focusing on all that is good in your life, the struggle becomes much easier to manage.
Monitor your thoughts and see how much energy you are giving the things that are not working in your life versus the things that are working in your life. Often we get so caught up in the things that are not working, that we forget that we have so much that is working in our lives!
By focusing your attention on what is working, it allows you to move to a more positive mindset. From this place, it is easier to come up with solutions and change your thinking towards seeming dilemmas.
As Louise Hay says-
I do not fix problems. I fix my thinking and then the problems fix themselves.
While you don’t want to avoid trouble spots in your life, you also don’t want to get bogged down by them either.
Step 3: Replace Judgement with Kindness
Most of us judge ourselves way too harshly. Remember, we are here to learn, grow, fail, succeed and everything in between. We are not expected to have everything figured out. Yes, we will make mistakes, yes we will do the wrong thing sometimes, but this is all part of life.
We are all spiritual beings here for a human experience, and the more we can be kind to ourselves, love ourselves and accept our lives, the easier things become.
In fact, when you truly love yourself, everything else falls into place. It really is that simple.
Along with not judging yourself, you should also try not to judge others. Everyone is walking their own path, everyone is here to do their own thing and grow in their own way, so try not to judge.
Instead, try to look at people for who they are- a soul that is here just like you trying to figure things out!
Step 4: Know Your Purpose is Love
What’s my purpose? This is something everyone wants to know, but your purpose is not something you find, it is simply just who you are.
Your purpose is to be yourself and live your truth, and the only truth is love. Even though this may sound a bit intangible, being true to yourself will always lead to your highest path.
Try not to get caught up in what your purpose is or try to make it this big, grand thing. Just be yourself and ask- how can I love myself and others more?
