I know we often want the conditions to change so we can start feeling better.
As actors, we often spend a lot of time “hoping we will feel better when…we get a callback, we get a new agent, or when we book the job.”
Yes, I’ve done that too.
And now, there seems to be a collective “hoping we will feel better when….this pandemic is finally over.”
The reason this way of thinking makes us feel so powerless, is because we are allowing the external conditions (the callback, the agent, the job, the pandemic), to dictate how we feel.
Sure, we’d all like to be back working (and I’d love for my kids to return to in-person school next week), but I am reminded during these times, that we do have the power to choose our focus. And it is our focus that determines how we feel.
Think about it. Have you ever been stuck in traffic and noticed one driver who is angry and frustrated and another driver who is singing and dancing along to their music? Same situation. Different focus. DIfferent feeling.
I’ve had my own share of ups and downs these past few months, but in sitting down to record this month’s guided meditation for my Spotlight Club + Community, this new math equation came to me. An equation for feeling bliss, right now. (Yes, even among all kinds of conditions that I may not like).
This equation has reminded me that it’s not about waiting for the perfect conditions to appear, but having a process for finding the light even on my darkest days. I hope it helps you too.
Which element of this equation might you focus on more today?
Imagine how it would feel to practice all five of these elements, every single day for a week.
I’ll give you a sneak peek into what will happen:
- Your perspective will shift. (Focus)
- Your attitude will shift. (Feeling)
- Solutions will begin to appear. (Solutions you didn’t notice or think of before)
Don’t take my word for it. Use this week (and your current conditions) to practice the fine art of feeling B.L.I.S.S.
This formula has been doing wonders for me (and my Spotlight Club members), since all of the mindset tools I’ve created for August are designed to help you in believing, letting go, listening to your inner guidance, finding stillness and practicing self-acceptance.
If you want to take the guesswork out of how to stay in the energy of feeling B.L.I.S.S the entire day, this guided meditation will get you there every single time.
And you’ll get so good at knowing when you are in + when you are out (and how to reset in seconds!).
Either way, I hope you see that where you choose to focus + how it makes you feel is where all of your power lies.
Let me know which element you’ll be working on this week.
Leave a comment here on the blog ( I love hearing from you!).
I hope no matter what the external conditions may look like right now, that you find your way to feeling B.L.I.S.S.
I will meet you there.
Love + Gratitude,
