Today’s the big day!!
Today we officially get on the ferry and move into our beautiful new home in Saanich, BC!
I am thrilled and delighted to be living in the peace of the island countryside, steps from wide open fields, lush forests, beautiful beaches and organic farmers that I can bicycle to. I am even more thrilled that my daughter Meelah gets to be minutes away from living her passion working with her horse, Widget, every day surrounded by her friends and “farm-ily!”
Feeling so immensely grateful. It’s not that I’m surprised by this next chapter of my life…I have, after all, been nursing this vision for some time now. I have been holding in my heart the qualities of this lifestyle without any idea of how it would unfold or exactly what it would look like. All I knew was that I was certain it would unfold in the highest way for all.
In fact, if I had tried to design this myself, I couldn’t have done it so easily or exquisitely as it has been done by the Divine. I could not have see the nuances of the beautiful brand new home that was waiting for us, the incredible horse that Meelah “joined-up” with, I could not have planned the level of love, encouragement and support we have received (even from complete strangers) nor could I have timed out everything so perfectly or positioned all the finances for myself to be even more ahead than I imagined.
Even as I write this I am noticing the “too-good-to-be-trueness” of it all and shaking my head with awe.
And yet, I KNOW this is how we are all meant to live. We are meant to be perfectly guided towards our heart’s vision and taken care of. We are meant to thrive, expand, succeed, grow and receive unlimited joy and abundance. But so few people ever learn HOW to live this way. Most people think it’s just luck – in the stars for some select group of people – when the truth is it’s simply a SKILL SET available to all.
I repeat: Living the life of your dreams, the most authentic life that is true to your heart, is something you LEARN.
So what kind of skills does this include…you might wonder…
In honesty, there are a good number of skills that all work together like a symphony to deliver a joyful, free and abundant life, and here are the most critical 3:
1. Cleaning up your belief system.
What you believe is what you WILL perceive. No ifs, ands or buts. If you believe life is hard, it will be. So you MUST optimize your beliefs no matter what. This skill takes time and energy focused within so most people just don’t do it. It takes getting honest with how you have been programmed in the mind. It can feel like opening up a huge, dark attic inside you and cleaning it up by picking up every single item in there, facing each one head on, dusting them off and purging all the garbage that is toxic up there in the mind. This step also involves implanting new beliefs that are healthy and love-based (vs. fear-based) that begin to feed your new and improved reality. When you hold high quality beliefs you automatically begin to embody the feelings and vibrations to become magnetic to what you desire.
2. Establishing a strong connection to the Divine.
We are not meant to do life on our own. We are not even necessarily meant to rely on other people to thrive. Our single source of most effective guidance, support and help is the Divine. Whatever that is for you: God, inner self, angels, infinite intelligence…if you don’t have a strong connection to a higher power, you are like a branch separated from the tree. You will not receive the life force and nourishment from the trunk of your tree. You will dry up and become brittle. Many people have divorced themselves from higher power because of past (perhaps bad) experiences with someone else’s higher power or belief. No one teaches us how to cultivate our own unique, individual divine connection customized to who we are specifically. It has even been scientifically measured that establishing this divine connection with daily communication as well as developing our full intuitive capacity is essential for a life of ease and flow.
3. Taking consistent, aligned action towards your authentic vision of life.
It’s a great first step to envision the life you truly want, to think about it and imagine it. But many people get stuck in the wishing and wanting of it without ever really taking tangible action steps towards making it real. Overwhelm, busyness, stress, doubt, fear, procrastination, discouragement from others – all these influences keep us paralyzed and stuck where we are for years. Perhaps we begin or take a few steps with hesitation but then we pull back or sabotage ourselves. Action must be consistent (daily) and built in as a HABIT. Even the smallest action every day will “move the mountain.” In fact, many people misunderstand that it is ALL about the baby steps not the huge big ones. The huge big ones are scary so we never do them, whereas small daily actions are doable and much easier to commit to…over time they will always yield results. It’s also important to make sure the actions you take daily are in alignment with your vision, not just other distractions that will keep you from what you want. Learning how to create “action systems” that are on autopilot is key!
These are three of the most important skills to getting the results you deeply want in your life (and yes there are more, but beginning here will already give you profound traction.)
