365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 125: What Are You Looking Forward To?

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

Is there something that you are looking forward to? Is there anything scheduled later during this year that makes you feel excited? Something that you are planning or have been dreaming of for some time?

When you are excited and are genuinely looking forward to an event, such as a vacation to a wonderful place or a gathering with people you love and who love you, starting a business or changing your career, your system is flushed with hormones that improve your health and vitality. You are also sending your energy forward with excitement, positive expectation and optimism. As a result, life seems to flow with more ease and things get easier.

The opposite is also true, when you have nothing to anticipate and be excited about, or worse still, when you are dreading the upcoming events, the stress hormones released in your body diminish your well-being and can seriously damage your health; especially as your life situation stays the same over a long period of time. When you have nothing to look forward to, days seem to drag slowly one after the other, you wake up and don’t feel like starting your day, obstacles seem to be around every corner and life seems hard.

So my question for you today is: “What are you looking for in the next three months, six months, nine months? Anything?”.

If you have nothing to feel excited about, I want you to make a decision right now to start planning something next week. Decide what that is, choose a time frame and then start writing down the steps that will get you there.

The reason things stay the same and nothing exciting happens is because people do not take the time to envision and plan for a change.

So ask yourself what would bring you joy and excitement and then start moving in  that direction.

Do not say that you have no time or no money. The resources you will need will come to you as you send your desires into the Universe.

Send the desire out.

Make a plan.

Take the first step.

Then take the next.

Feel your excitement grow.

Start to notice the changes in your life.

Love,

Rucsandra

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 124: Being YOU

RUCSANDRA's PICTURE

I want you to be content with being YOU.

I want you to feel peace inside your mind, calmness within your emotional body, connection with your spiritual self, health in your physical body, balance and clarity in your energetic field. This is my pure, heart felt desire for you, because I want you to feel free, to unleash your beauty and your creative powers and to contribute your genius to the world!

From what I see everyday, most people are in such internal turmoil that nothing seems to work in their lives the way they truly want. Because they are consumed by their inner struggles they are too exhausted to ignite great transformation in their lives.

Healing your body, finding your perfect partner, healing your relationships, creating a successful and thriving business, clearing old hurt and pain, living with joy and with purpose require your energy, concentration and determination. If you are drained and worn out by fighting with yourself, you have no resources for creating your life your way.

What if you stop criticizing yourself, blaming yourself for one thing or another, judging and condemning your thoughts, your looks or your choices?

What if you start approving of yourself more?

What if you contemplate the possibility of being even content with yourself sometime soon?

How’s that sound?

Think about it.

What if?

Love,

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 123: Want Answers? Be OK With Not Having Them!

This is a very interesting fact: finding out what to do next, what path to take from now on or getting the solution you are looking for depends on how comfortable you are with not knowing.

Sounds paradoxical? It is not.

I know how you feel if you are under pressure to know what your next step will be. I know the feeling very well, because I used to toss and turn and drive myself exhausted by trying to figure out what I was supposed to do in various situations. I’ve learned a lot since those days of continuous turmoil.

What I found out is this: the more I relaxed into not knowing the answers just yet, the more I released resistance; and because I releases resistance what I wanted to know was revealed to me.

Try it. Relax. Start accepting that it is OK to not know for a while. Releasing resistance towards the “not knowing” state allows you be in a receptive state, where you are not going against the current of life and therefore solutions and answers are able to come to you with less obstacles.

Eckhart Tolle says:

“Being at ease with not knowing is crucial for answers to come to you.”

If you find it hard to accept and believe, start with what I always advise you to start with: take a first step; think of the first level you can accept and go from there. For example, start by saying to yourself: “Well, I do not believe this ‘feeling at ease with not knowing’ concept, but maybe I’ll read more about it; in the meantime, I will accept the fact that it works for other people. And if it works for them, maybe it can work for me as well. It would sure be nice to feel less stressed out in situations when I do not know what to do yet.”

As I always say: start somewhere.

Accept that there might be something that will work better, even if you haven’t heard about it before.

Entertain the new idea.

Contemplate the possibility, as Dr. Wayne Dyer says.

Love,
