The angels had me ask myself this New Year’s Eve, “Who do I want to be?” It was a good question. I like myself as is, but always have areas in which I want to improve. I want to be a gracious, loving person who lives authentically, in balance, has energy, vibrant health, and is confident even when challenged… and so much more! While I achieve these things much of the time, just thinking about it, as the angels pointed out, did bring up areas in which I can improve.
In my ideal life I am active and exercise once again. I let that go because I was so busy towards the end of last year and could not get motivated. I had fallen into the old habit of taking care of my business before my body. It was clearly time to correct that!
At first I didn’t change a thing externally. I spent time each day remembering what it felt like to be fit and energetic first. I didn’t even bother to push myself to exercise. Gradually the urge to exercise came back and I remembered how good even a little felt. I remembered how much help I received whenever I see my wonderful shaman/chiropractor who assists me in keeping my energy open and flowing so I can channel more for others. (If you are in Phoenix, Dr. Shawn Warwick is amazing!). I got tired of the holiday over-indulgence as I imagined my healthy self, and started craving tasty, healthy food!
Likewise, I started to imagine what it would feel like to live in balance again. I don’t get much sleep because most of my shows and inspirations must be done after my client work, however, when I am passionate about what I do, the energy runs endlessly! So I spent time remembering what that felt like, to be so passionate about what I do. Sometimes we just get in our habits and forget to enjoy what we are already doing! I re-read journal entries from 20 years ago and reconnected with the wonder of working with the heavens! I sat down and had a chat with a guide I hadn’t talked to in over a decade. Suddenly a childlike sense of delight and wonderful began to re-emerge. Even talking to angels can seem normal when you’ve done it for two decades! I want to be the kind of person that never takes any of it for granted.
And so on it went, and continues to go in my life. For a few minutes each day, I spend time thinking about the kind of person I want to be, and suddenly I notice areas in life where I need to make a few adjustments. It feels good. Old habits may “die hard” as the saying goes, but with persistence, and your inner eyes on the wonderful way you wish to feel, they will eventually give way to better, happier realities!
