Been going from feeling good one moment to feeling agitated the next? (This was me on Friday).
Been starting the day feeling overwhelmed + then check the news + start feeling worse?
Been noticing other actors thriving during this time + wondering how the heck they’re staying productive?
You are not alone.
I know this year 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 as I set out to write a new guided meditation each month, 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 tough times).
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…” 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.
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, especially right now.
I’ve dedicated this month to helping actors find more ways to master this process (and we’re only 3 days into August + it’s been working so well!)
In fact, this month, all of the mindset tools I’m creating are to help you start “Feeling B.L.I.S.S.” (I’m going to walk you through the 5 elements to feeling B.L.I.S.S. in next week’s newsletter.)
If you want a fast pass to this process right now, you can listen to my latest guided meditation + visualization designed to help you let go of lack + separation and create a state of bliss now, not ‘someday.’ Get it here.
Loved hearing this from London actress + Spotlight Club member, Kirsty Mather Catchpole.
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.
As always, I’m happy to help lead the way. Details here.
Or if you missed the live training I did last month (where I dive deep into principles for thriving through uncertainty + give you action steps to shift how you’re feeling), catch the replay here.
Let me know in the comments here, what you do to shift how you’re feeling?
However you get there, I hope you take time to realign your mind throughout the day today + know that shifting your emotions is where all manifestation begins.
Love + Gratitude,
