Been going from feeling good one moment to feeling agitated the next? I’ve had those moments too lately.
Been starting the day feeling overwhelmed, check the news and then start feeling worse?
Been noticing other actors thriving during this time + wondering “when will it be my turn?”
I want you to know: You are not alone.
This past year and half has been an emotional roller coaster ride, like no other.
As I go through my own ups and downs, I continue to seek new answers to new questions and I’ve been blown away at what shows up in the stillness of this process.
I know we all want things to change so we can start feeling better, but I also know that real manifestation begins within. (even during times of extreme uncertainty)
We’ve been conditioned that seeking external circumstances (and even material things) will somehow make us feel bliss.
We spend our days, months + years striving to get somewhere, in the hopes that when we arrive at our “destination,” we will somehow feel better.
We put off our happiness to the elusive, “One day when this happens, I will feel amazing…” kind of thinking and we spend our lives chasing a dream of happiness that somehow still, no matter what we obtain or achieve, continues to elude us.
Mainly because we didn’t learn (or perhaps we forgot along the way), that the key to creating something is to embody the emotions ahead of time.
Not waiting for the manifestation to bring the feeling, but to create the feeling within now. That’s the inner work. (And most people are going about it backwards).
Imagine feeling the bliss you’re seeking…today. (We’re actors, so using our imagination to feel is something we all know how to do for a role, but now it’s time to be diligent about doing this in your daily life.)
And when you do, not only do you shift your state of being, but your world shifts to match the feeling.
Best selling author + meditation expert, Dr. Joe Dispenza explains it this way:
“The more you can feel the emotions of your future,
the less likely you will be to live in lack & separation,
because the longer we condition our body into the emotions of our future, the more we feel like that future has already happened.
If you felt like your future had already happened,
then you wouldn’t worry or stress, and you wouldn’t try to force, wish,
or predict future outcomes. Instead, you would just know your future is
coming towards you, so all you have to do is receive it
when it comes knocking on your door.
Staying in that energy the entire day is the work.”
I love the last line of this quote, “staying in that energy the entire day is the work,” because this is where most people have trouble (and why tuning out the external noise and tuning inward is so helpful).
As you find ways to start feeling bliss daily, you’ll recreate your self-image, let go of limitations + draw future experiences toward you more easily + effortlessly.
Let me know in the comments below, what’s one thing you’ll do today to shift how you’re feeling?
I hope you take time to realign your mind throughout the day today + know that shifting your emotions is where all manifestation begins.
I’m rooting for you.
Love + Gratitude,
