Law of attraction teachers will say that to receive what you want, you have to know what you want. Be very clear about it.
For several years now, through coaching, meditation and journalling, as well as other tools, I have working to get clear on what I want. For me, it boils down to these three things:
- Time freedom
- Raise my vibration
- Earn my living from my spiritual work
I’ve been actively working towards these three goals for over two years.
Recently, I’ve noticed just how jam-packed my schedule is. Added responsibilities at work, rehearsing for a play, extra-curricular activities for my boys, and my own regular activities have left me with very little free time. That first goal feels ever so elusive right now!
One of my core beliefs is that my outer world is a reflection of my inner world. So it occurred to me during my morning meditation last week that perhaps my lack of free time has something to do with how I am thinking and talking about time.
I thought about that for a little while, and sure enough, all of my language about time was negative. “I don’t have time for that”, “when have I had time”, “in all my copious spare time” (read that last one with a heavy dose of sarcasm).
The past few days, I’ve been thinking about how I can change my thinking about time. It’s not been quite as clear as I had hoped. The first thing I need to realize is that I have chosen all of the things and activities that I am currently involved in.
I choose to go to work (the biggest allocation of my time) in service to my family, so we can continue to have a place to live and food to eat.
I chose to audition for the play, and then to accept the part I was offered. And I really am having fun and enjoying the new relationships I am building.
I chose to enroll my boys in karate, to encourage physical activity and self discipline.
I choose to continue writing my blog, and organizing my spiritual circle, and coach my clients. It fills me with joy to witness others grow and expand.
I really have more freedom than I thought I did, once I stop and re-frame how I see my time being used. Time freedom is more about who I am choosing to be, than what I am doing with my time. Choosing to be in love and gratitude, no matter what I am doing, is my mission for this week!
