Within our day to day lives, it is so easy to feel out of alignment and as if we have fallen off the path towards reaching our goals. Over time, I have discovered five reminders that are able to get myself back in the groove and ready to achieve anything.
I have had a whole lot going on in my life lately – from thinking I was moving across the country to the plans changing two weeks beforehand, it’s been a wild ride to say the least. I left my job as a preschool teacher to be home with my son, began a mentorship with one of my biggest idols Ava Johanna, and signed up for yoga teacher training at a dream location with another huge idol! So many good things are coming, but I can still find myself doubting my abilities and not feeling as if I am doing enough or going after enough opportunities.
I have such big goals, but often lack the motivation to put all of my thoughts into one place and really focus on the small steps that need to be accomplished in order to reach where I want to be. Add that to being sick and in bed for the last two weeks and I’m feeling like I’ve definitely missed some golden opportunities to move forward.
Today though, I am slowing down and really allowing my Soul to take over. I have put my mind out of the way and am able to remember the biggest truths that are always able to stop me in my tracks and remind me that I AM doing all that I need to, no matter how far off the path I may feel.
When you are feeling low energy and unmotivated, or as if everyone around you is making big leaps towards their dreams and desires, you can remind yourself of these little truths as well:
1. First off, it is important to know we are ALWAYS on the path towards where we want to be.
As soon as we have a desire, the Universe sets things into motion. Whether or not that dream comes now or in the next few years, it is in action. We are on the path of least resistance and we will either reach that destination eventually, or our desires will change and we will put ourselves onto a new path. Either way, we are always on our way towards that which we desire.
2. We are not meant to do what others around us are doing – that means it has already been done!
We may desire to do something similar, but the way in which it will come through us will be much different than those around us. But, just the fact that we desire to be like someone else tells us that we CAN, and should serve as motivation to begin. Remember that these people have also been at work for some time and their manifestations have not just appeared out of nowhere with no time and work put in.
3. When we feel as if we have fallen off of our path, it is an opportunity to remember what is really important to us and to SLOW DOWN.
Often we get so caught up in our minds, thinking of what we should be doing and that what we want is coming. This can send us into a loop of negativity that what we want is not already here. This most definitely will not help get us to where we want to be and will only add more resistance to what is trying to make its way into our lives. Remind yourself to pause and reflect when these thoughts begin to enter your mind.
4. Taking a break is always necessary for a reset.
Stop pushing and trying to force things, and just rest. Take a break from what you are hoping to accomplish and allow it to come to you on its own. What is meant for you will be easy, and often if we are trying too hard to achieve something, it is a sign that it is not really meant for us anyways. Put that goal aside and allow the Universe to send you something even better.
5. Focusing on self-care will put you back into alignment.
While taking a break from working and worrying, focus on finding relaxation and joy in the present moment. The Law of Attraction works best when we are taking the time out to make our Souls happy and feel heard.
Remind yourself daily that the Universe does not make anything that is meant to be in your life difficult! You should always be chasing your joy and going after what lifts you up and excites you. If something does not feel like this, it is probably not meant to be. Drop it, and reroute!
