What is your word of the year?

The beginning of the year was really busy and successful in all areas. As every beginning of the year we are tempted to do New Year’s resolutions. We read about the resolutions everywhere. And every time I’ve thought of making a resolution I didn’t feel really inspired. I devoted quite some time thinking, why this is so. The way I did them in the past meant something finite, usually in form of huge, non-realistic goals. If I didn’t achieve them, I felt bad. And I don’t like feeling bad at all. Feeling bad can not manifest good things. You know that already. 🙂

Then I stumbled across the Cristine Kane blog, which suggests to find your word of the year. I sat down, closed my eyes and wait for few minutes. The word which came, was SURRENDER. And not in the sense to give up, but to SURRENDER TO LIFE, LET GO…..With that word in my mind I looked at each an every of my so called issues and see how with surrender I can let go of particular attachement, surrender to the current of life, unstuck my self, where I was stuck. I used my word of the year everytime I felt worrried, didn’t know what to do, when thinking too much about certain things, when afraid, what the next moment will bring…

After using my word of the year for a while the real New Year’s resolution appeared: LIVE TO YOUR FULL POTENTIAL. That striked me like somebody would give me an acceleration kick in the butt. 😀 What this would be like? Living to my full potential?

And you know what? The combination of SURRENDER and LIVE TO YOUR FULL POTENTIAL brought new painting, total clarity and concept for my business web page, taking a leadership role in a small group…..These are potentials which are lying in me, why not to use them, have fun creating new things and making a difference with them in the world?

And most of all, surrender meant letting go of the past, letting go of the future, living for the moment, expect every moment will bring something exciting, something I love. I trust in that and know it will be so. I am falling in love with my life, with me….. and it feels so damn GOOD!

What is your word of the year? Give it a try. It’s easy: sit down, close your eyes and wait. It will come. Let the word guide you through the year. What my word already did for me in this year, is huge! And looking forward to more!

For all who would like to explore more about the word of the year, the link to Christine Kane’s pdf worksheet is here.

I would really love to hear what is your word of the year. Please share your experience.

With love,

It only matters that you feel good

Think for a moment: what is behind your every wish? Behind every desire?

  • To have a lot of money
  • To have a love of your life
  • To have a nice car
  • To travel around the world
  • To find a job
  • I want to have (insert your desire) ____________________ .

Imagine, how would you feel having the thing you desire. Happy? Peaceful? Accepted? Relaxed? It is something which feels good, right?


And Law of Attraction works like this: if you feel that you don’t have and you focus on lack of the thing you desire, you will get more of this (more lack). When you focus on the good feeling, which is basically the feeling you want to experience, when your desire comes through, you get more of this. And your desire will come true. The opposite is not possible.

Ehmm, what I am trying to say is: Feel good first and anything else will follow.

I am feeling good, when:

  • walking in the nature, especially woods
  • at the sea and other waters (sitting by the sea, sailing, windsurfing, picking nicely shaped and coloured stones, soaking in the water, listening to the sound of water moving)
  • listening to masterpiece music
  • singing
  • dancing
  • enjoying my friends company
  • playing with cats and dogs
  • reading a good book (oh yeah :))
  • discovering new places, new things
  • discussing ideas
  • wathing a good movie
  • doing nothing 😀
  • coaching
  • doing anything connected with fashion and art
  • snuggling in my comfy, warm bed
  • listening or watching to Ester Hicks/ Abraham teachings
  • enjoying the company of LOA savy people at Good Vibe University
  • watching the wild colours of the sky, when the day is turning in the night
  • feeling sun on my cheeks
  • of course kissing and huging 🙂

Each and every of this activities brings me in to the place, where I enjoy myself, I am me and forget about the time and space. They raise my energetic vibration, which is needed if I want to manifest high vibing things/people/events. This is my manifesting tool box. What is yours? Make a list and go ahead – doing what feels good.

I am putting my winter boots on, going out in the woods, get my body moving, and make trails in the snow. It feels good. 😉

I said NO and I loved it!

Jorge Vidal: Woman with heart

How many times are you doing things because you think:

  1. It is appropriate.
  2. Other think it is appropriate.
  3. To please others.
  4. Because of social agreements ( for example: wanting a child, because this is socially required?).
  5. Other said to do it.
  6. You don’t know why…

 

And how many times are you doing things because:

  1. You really like it.
  2. You listen to Yourself.
  3. You can not resist not doing it.

 

The later is called inspired action. And sometimes inspired actions looks like saying: »No, I will not go to the party, beacuse I just don’t feel to.« Sometimes inspired action looks like taking a nap, getting our peace in solitude, listening to our favourite music or playing with our pet.

Start listening to your inner wisdom, to your inner voice, respecting your feelings and not walking all over them just because it is not appropriate (you might think so) to show that you are sad, angry, anxious and that you don’t agree with what was said.

I did this on Friday – I was invited on my friend’ s birthday party and was feeling like staying at home and having some peaceful evening with a book. I stood up for what I was really feeling and expressed it authentically (although they tried to convince me though ). Today I am so proud, that I did this. I respected my feelings. I got my peace and everybody is happy.

Before I discovered the Law of Attraction and power of Self-Love I would do anything to please others , because somewhere deeply inside I was afraid I will be perceived as not good enough, not worthy of love, bad and ugly.

The first person who has to respect Yourself is YOU. And once, you start respecting Yourself, others will follow. The relationship with Yourself is reflected in all your »outer« relationships.

Like attracts like.

p.s. and voice on the radio was singing: »Girl, you are amazing just the way you are.«

 

Living intentionally

Are you living your life on an auto-pilot with thinking, that things are happening to you? You might think that this is your reality. The truth is, that you are creating your reality with your thoughts, feelings, beliefs, attitudes – from inside out. Your life is created THROUGH you. It really helps if we are 100% aware of this.

If we are, we start to observe our thoughts, beliefs, attitudes towards people and things, our expectations (yes, that #&%# thing happened again, I told you it will be so!!).

Lately I became aware how unintentionally I live. So I started this week with setting the intentions in the morning, each day, when I wake up: “This will be a perfect day!” I say and expect this with a real confidence and belief.

When I sit in the car I sit in with the intention: “This  will be a perfect ride and I will come from Kamnik to Ljubljana quickly as usually.” I’m cathing the green wave of traffic lights, traffic is running without any roadblocks or congestions. Of course I was expecting that, when setting the intention.

I am setting the intentions to get the parking space on the parking lots full of cars in the evenings and I go even that far that I point out in which parking lot I want to park. And oh yes, the parking spaces are always waiting for me, exactly where I want. I became very good at this. And this was my first exercise to prove myself how we can envision everything we want, get everything we can think of – with the power of our minds, with a positive expectations and belief, that we’ll get that. I found this exercise in Brian Tracy’s book Thinking Big: The Keys to Personal Power and Maximum Performance.

This is how I created two job offers at the same time in two different companies for exactly the same monthly payment. Both were really cool at that time so I had difficulties to decide which one to take.  😉

And my days are perfect! Broken relationships started to build back, existing relationships are becoming better and better….

You can use setting the intention for everything! Before important meeting – set the intention what you would like the meeting to be (productive, peaceful, friendly, etc.), maybe you are anxious when getting on the party  – just set the intention that it will be FUN (or whatever you want).

Yes, I remember those times going to the party with the prevailing thought (this was actually the intention): “And nobody will want to dance with me…” Guess what… I ended attending those parties, because really nobody asked me to dance. Oh my… I didn’t know that, what I know today. Hehe, my parties are full of all night dancing now!! Love that!

Try with little things to convince yourself in the magic of intentions setting and deliberate creation. Don’t beat yourself up if it doesn’t succeed at first. You will build that muscle with the practice.

I commit myself to live more intentionally. Right now I am creating the intention to calling in the One. 😛 Will keep you posted.

XOXO
