What trips up your Vision? 5 tips to avoid potential crashes.

by Cheryl Brewster

There’s an expression that Poet Robbie Burns is famous for: Best-laid plans of mice and men oft(en) go astray, and best-laid schemes o’ mice an’ men gang aft a-gley. In other words, things often go wrong despite your well laid plans. (The gang aft a-gley version is Scots dialect, and comes from Robert Burns’ poem “To a Mouse.”)

So let’s talk about that; the despair, disappointment and dread that can arise with sudden, drastic unexpected change:
You’ve set your Vision and goals of what you want to create, live, and be, however very quickly, things outside of your control have altered the speed or course of that Vision.  Life happens, unexpected events occur and one of two things can result:

1. Feelings of anxiety or trauma can take over leading you to unconsciously focus on what you “don’t want,” which will lead to more of the same… exactly what you don’t want, including the life-sucking pit that sucks you into emotional vortexes of worry and helplessness.

2. Or,  you will focus on what you DO want, including your positive emotional state, which will create just that; the reality of joy that can co-exist with challenge. And that’s freedom! Knowing that no matter what happens you’ll be okay… that you can and will handle it. It’s the expansion of the soul that is occuring – like a container that gets stronger to “hold” all of what you are going through, returning you to a sense of safety.

The beauty of absolutely keeping your focus only on what you do want to feel and create, is the  INSTANT relief it provides:

  • By switching your focus from  stress and negative emotion, you take control of what you want to  experience in the moment; you claim the power of alternate dimensions or realities that support, not tear down
  • You think more creatively and begin to see new  possibilities; you become more effective; remember negative emotion impedes the brain
  • You increase  focus and a positive mental attitude for consistency in effectiveness, solutions and inspired, authentic action
  • Creativity, expansiveness, intuition  and mind power expand (as opposed to the reverse)
  • Course correction, an essential yet easily overlooked tool to personal growth becomes more automatic
  • And most importantly, keeping your focus on what you DO want, helps to foster Mindfulness which is about paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non-Judgmentally (Jon Kabat-Zinn)

So how best to create these benefits and avoid the potential hazards that can trip us up in following our Vision?

1. Think of yourself as an athlete in training.
By visioning you decided to make your life better; that includes releasing the pain of resisting change as it comes up.

2. Know your Stress Patterns
They’re the habits that switch your focus from “do want” to “don’t want” – what triggers them? Brainstorm solutions so you’re prepared for life’s predictable curve balls.

3. Course correct those stress patterns through awareness and focus… acting in unity with your vision in itself creates unification.

4. Keep your focus on what you love to do. All the time!
As Susan Jeffers warned in Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway,  “Your mind only takes off on its own when you’re not telling it what to do”.

5. Keep a Gratitude/Blessings Journal – it increases your vibrational frequency; the energy that aligns you to your higher values, and magnetics of manifesting heart’s desire.

If don’t currently have a “Vision Awareness Practice,” consider incorporating these for the next week and share with me what happens! All the research in self discovery and personal development for success in life and business points to the importance of constant repetition… this isn’t just once in a while thing. For full effectiveness it becomes a daily practice that over time builds and sustains the joy of life, in all circumstances.

3 tips to greater personal effectiveness

by Cheryl Brewster

As we grow in awareness, we become more cognizant of what we most want in life. The willingness to let go of the habits that have created what we “don’t want”, requires huge acceptance. Part of that acceptance is the habit of becoming more kind and compassionate with ourselves. This is not a “one time deal or hit and miss scenario.” This must become a habit, and habits are borne out of one thing… the willingness to repeat, repeat, repeat; to make the achievement of our desires more important than the feelings or habits holding us back.

This is hugely courageous and effective work. The definition of effectiveness is producing or being capable of producing a desired effect, so the question becomes, how important is my own personal effectiveness to me? You must be willing to “Take Your Stand,” to make this the most important objective in your life.  As Joel Osteen said, in his book on living your full potential:

“You must make a decision that you are going to move on. It wont happen automatically. You will have to rise up and say, ‘I don’t care how hard this is, I don’t care how disappointed I am, I’m not going to let this get the best of me. I’m moving on with my life.”

Wow… important words to remember. Why? Because in becoming more aware, we are required to meet our ineffectiveness head on. We must be willing to meet our disappointment and not let it get the best of us. The following three tips are key:

  1. You are in training. Every expert started out a beginner. Give yourself a break! Start with where you are and be willing to enjoy the journey; enjoyment allows you to see the possibilities that judgement refuses to see.
  2. Be kind to yourself. It’s your judgments that hold you back… begin an “Awareness Log “of your judgments.
  3. In that log,  include a column for kindness and compassion. Kindness and compassion will  melt the judgement. Judgement is what feeds the fear or procrastination that hold you back from your personal effectiveness and reaching your desires. Expressions to self like “I understand how you could feel this way,” or “of course you would feel this way,” acknowledge the judgement and underlying suppressed feelings. Only when they are acknowledged, can they be released. This is personal effectiveness; the willingness to let go and keep moving on.

Try this:
Notice your judgment of your judgment.
Now bring kindness and compassion to those judgments (e.g., I can understand how you could feel this way).
Breathe.

Consider journaling your experience, or, to receive your complimentary “Awareness Log” click here to request it. The journey of personal effectiveness begins in the extraordinary adventure of self discovery. Where is your intuition leading you? Clues are held in how aware you are of both effective and ineffective habits in your life and how willing you are, to bring kindness and compassion to them. That is the gateway to your powerful knowing  as the Conscious Changemaker in your own life, borne through the fire of trial and error, made easier with the healing effectiveness of kindness and compassion.

As we grow in awareness, we become more effective in achieving what we most want in life. Kindness and Compassion are the Key.

The Energy of Money

by Cheryl Brewster

Are you pushing away the very thing you say you want? Can the energy of money be a profound tool for spiritual transformation? Is there really any difference between tangible cold hard cash and esoteric, metaphysical principles of abundance? Asking these questions is important; they clear the path for us as heart-centred entrepreneurs and change agents, living on purpose.

In my teleseminars and coaching over the last year, a pattern that has struck me as very curious, even bizarre yet absolutely life changing, is this: although we want to create more prosperity in life, a growing shift is the ability to actually accept what we really want. Whether that prosperity is financial, improved health or relationships, most of us are shocked to discover that what has been holding us back has been our own inability to actually receive.

This anomaly is best reflected in some of Dan Millman’s writing (Way of the Peaceful Warrior) where he asks “how good can you stand it?” Wow! Good question… How good CAN we stand it? Are we willing to let it be that good? And if we are, when… and is right now a good time?

Notice that it all begins with awareness. A tiny thought. A tiny pinprick of light pointed in a certain direction.

In studying this phenomenon, I’m drawn to the wisdom of Lester Levenson, the inspiration behind The Sedona Method:

  • There is no difference between the spiritual and material from the viewpoint of Truth. The difference is in outlook; whether you see it from the ego’s point of view or from the Self. A realized person sees the world only as an out-projection of themselves.
  • Any time we see any difference between the spiritual and the worldly, it’s because we don’t have enough understanding of the spiritual as yet. We are separating. The highest state is when we are in the world and in spirit at one and the same time and there is no difference.
  • When we’re there, we don’t see it as world and spirit. We see it as one and the same thing; we see a oneness; we see it all as our very own Self.

To manifest in the physical, we must understand the spiritual.
To understand the spiritual, we must take inspired, authentic action in the physical.

This is where the power of intuition is truly at play:

  • what is calling you, inspiring you, directing you?What do you most want?
  • notice any hesitancy or resistance to receiving it, allowing it, taking action towards it
  • what happens when you hold the resistance in pure compassion and kindness?
  • does it help you become more aware of driven behaviors ?
  • can resistance now be a gift, one that points to the separation that really isn’t there, but one that you believed exists?

Perhaps in answering these questions, a bizarre, counter-intuitive pattern begins to emerge; we begin to see that the very thing we disowned in ourselves is our treasure. And therefore, there is no need for separation. There is nothing to fear, and no one to judge. When it comes to money, if we drop the separation, the fear and judgement; what remains? We begin to realize that all resistance is simply the invitation to let go of refusing what we most want to experience. As we embrace the learning, all manner of energy is freed up; we clear in the spiritual to take the inspired action necessary in the physical.

How good can you stand it?
Isn’t it time to have more fun visioning with the energy of money?
Isn’t it time to accept more wholeness with the energy of health?
Isn’t it time to enjoy manifesting your sacred partner as you fall madly and deeply in love with yourself?
And isn’t now a good time?

Intuition. Mindfulness. Prosperity. All here now. Are you accepting it or pushing it away? How do you know? Sometimes we go through unexpected, unwanted events, but when we remember that  “the highest state is when we are in the world and in spirit at one and the same time and there is no difference.”  This takes new vision and the willingness to apply emerging certainty through the vehicle of uncertainty. Brave work, powerful work, requiring repeated steps and application. “We are what we repeatedly do,” said Aristotle, “excellence is not an act, but a habit.”  Here’s to our new and strengthened habits as we grow stronger through accepting resistance and treasuring all the tiny, exquisite moments that are so incredibly rich, even in the midst of resistance.

Entrepreneurs – Is your Vision too big or too small?

by Cheryl Brewster

http://blogtalk.vo.llnwd.net/o23/show/5/546/show_5546967.mp3

Hello fellow entrepreneurs!
Intuition plays such a key role in identifying the vision for  business and choice points along the way, including course correcting when needed.  Begin with the end in mind is the big picture vision. However we must also be willing to embrace the small vision too: those less glamorous, boring, mundane tasks that challenge our patience and follow-through.

Keeping the intuitive process clean and clear to support our vision includes:

1. Inspired, authentic action
In the coaching world, the standard question is… are you taking massive action?
The key to effectiveness is to ensure that this massive action is in alignment with our values and vision, which requires attention and time. As a Conscious Changemaker / entrepreneur, you know when you are creating that space or not. You also know that doubt or resistance to taking massive action is removed when you re-align yourself with your values and your vision.

2. Use your Imagination to be in the “feeling state” of your Vision.  
The dictionary describes vision as: vivid, imaginative conception or anticipation: visions of wealth and glory….
The more room / time we make for imagination, the more creativity / innovation are transformed into measurable results for ongoing prosperity.

3. Trust the intuitive impulse within you… be willing to do things differently
We’ve all gone through this as entrepreneurs… you’re under a deadline and need to get things done… you might be getting a little tense… your mind tells you to keep at it…your heart tells you to get up, stretch and go for a short walk.  The inner conflict begins. These are perfect opportunities to stretch your intuitive muscles… a mind in conflict with itself reveals opportunities for growth. Take a step back and remember the big picture… intuition does not communicate with a sense of desperation… the ego mind on the other hand, will. It does not like change! Be willing to mix things up a bit, be willing to go for a short walk, even a one minute walk… and in that time, refocus on your vision… remember… that “vivid, imaginative conception or anticipation of wealth and glory.”  Let that wealth and glory be here now, in the wealth of positive thoughts and the glory of feeling more at peace, and in alignment with action that comes from that inspired, authentic place within you.

Prosperity is a state of mind… your intuition is constantly guiding you to this state… it’s big! Let the mundane details be immersed in vision too… it propels you forward, from a place of gratitude, possibility and inspiration… Intuition and Vision… inspired, authentic action in the details!

Here’s some “sage wisdom” to take with you:

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”  Patanjali

All man’s well-being depends upon two things: One is the right choice of aim, the other lies in the finding of the actions that lead to that end. – Aristotle

Prosperity Thinking and Gratitude

by Cheryl Brewster

I’m so grateful for the guiding principles that have inspired my life. Introduced by Steven Covey in his popular book,  The Seven Habits of Highly Effective people, the following simple phrase is one of the most powerful intuitive tools I’ve used:

“Begin with the end in Mind.”

Take a moment and a couple of deep breaths to reflect on this concept, and perhaps you, like me, will notice the following.

Begin with the End in Mind:

  • Immediately connects you to Prosperity; that bigger picture of inspiration and possibility that is always available when you direct your focus to it.
  • Activates the flow of intelligence that dynamically transforms difficulty into “I can do it!” inspired action
  • Reveals solutions  or new directions not accesible by the logical mind
  • Brings clarity and reveals limiting beliefs that you can drop with more ease
  • Connects you to your body wisdom and visual mind’s eye, where you “just know” or “see the optimal thing to do”

As a Conscious Changemaker  building your personal prosperity from the inside out, consider these 10 Tips:

  1. Identify a current challenge in your life and focus on “the End in in Mind”; notice the ideas that “pop” into your awareness
  2. Use an intuitive journal…. write down the ideas, “knowings,” images and inspirations that appear
  3. Jot down the synchronicities that occur; how are they related to your End in Mind reflection?
  4. Use visualization to go deeper; use imagination; let the scene play out, like watching a movie.
  5. Notice that over time, positive thought and feeling really do transform fear, so this becomes a Good Habit!
  6. Use the phrase as a mantra to bring focus. It will override doubt and the gravitational pull of staying stuck
  7. Use it as a practice  to generate more personal power
  8. You will forget from time to time.  The ABC’s of Intuition will help you to remember… Aware, Breathe, Connect to the End in Mind to get back on track
  9. Practice, practice, practice!
  10. Include kindness, compassion – they accelerate the process of awakening authentic power

While intuition lies beyond the logical, rational mind, thoughts and feelings are ENERGY…. when we master our focus and feelings, we become masters of this energy…. we begin to direct it more consciously; we keep our vision on the End in Mind so that despite challenges, we take small, consistent steps forward. Those small steps comprise the big leaps possible only by being AWARE of where we are focused or distracted, so we can kindly and compassionately course correct.

We can’t underestimate the power of imagination in activating our intuition…. Einstein recalled how, at the age of 16, he imagined chasing after a beam of light and how this experiment  played a memorable role in his development of special relativity.

The Intuitive Life is comprised of benefits that begin with the End in Mind. They are many…. what are they for you? Do you, like me….

  • feel more empowered and reminded that you have personal freedom and choice?
  • remember that no matter what happens, you are tapped into optimum solution at all times?
  • build your  “commitment muscles” that over time, automatically relax those “resistance muscles”?
  • consciously, deliberately choose more fun and joy as you  awaken into your true nature?
  • feel more inspired and grateful for the abundance and prosperity that is already here?

Begin with the End in Mind truly is Prosperity Thinking and Gratitude. From that place in my heart to yours; Happy Thanksgiving!

Spiritual Awakening – can we choose outrageous joy?

by Cheryl Brewster
YouTube Preview Image

How willing are you to be brave, positive, confident, adventurous, fun, and peaceful? What feelings do these words invoke? Try this experiment: take a moment to reread these words and REALLY experience the feelings they represent.  What would happen if you were outrageous in bringing them into your day,  moment by moment, including today’s:

  • to-do list
  • biggest problems or challenges
  • judgment of yourself and others

What would happen to your day? Your relationships? Your past hurts?
What would happen to how much you got done? Or the quality of the work and how you did it?
What would your experience be?

The power of our emotions plays a crucial role in everything we do, including our intuition and our prosperity.  Just a short few minutes consciously, deliberating choosing to be in alignment with our positive feeling emotions can help us:

  • become more  aligned with our center
  • help us see things we need to change so we can course correct into balance with love and compassion
  • be more patient, kind and accepting of the process of spiritual awakening
  • stay more present
  • be more at peace

1. Awareness first, then Action
As Esther and Jerry Hicks remind us in their book The Astonishing Power of Emotions: “An awareness of your emotions and what they mean is essential to your conscious evolution…. allowing yourself to become what life has caused you to desire is not about action. It is about the aligning of thought Energies. It is about focusing your attention in the direction of your desire rather than looking back at the current conditions that have given birth to your desire.” I interpret this as mindfulness birthing right action; it starts with a willingness to be emotionally present not only with what is, but with the certainty of what CAN be. As Napoleon Hill said, “you must have a keen, pulsating desire that transcends everything.”

2. Are you swimming against the current or going with the flow?
To paraphrase Hicks: we believe that anyone who amounts to anything has to work very hard, against the current. Turning downstream to go with the flow is labelled as too easy, even lazy. However, here’s the rub: “Nothing that you want is against the current!” The Stream of Life, if we allow it to carry us, is always downstream… the flow of life that we can trust… hence today’s “DARE YA!”.  Spiritual awakening – can you let yourself go with it’s flow?

3. Emotions help direct from ineffectiveness to improvement
“In this moment, am I turned toward improvement or away from it? The emotion you feel will give you the answer.” We’re either choosing to struggle or to flow… it’s that simple.

4. Take the dare, go with the flow
So let’s go back to the challenge of the day and be willing to experiment…. how will you know the power of peace if you don’t actually choose it? No matter what happens… can you let peace be here too, amid the inherent discomfort of painful emotions of spiritual awakening? Take a look at the list of emotions at the top of this article…. how will you know their power if you don’t actually choose them?

Helen Keller said that life is a daring adventure or nothing. Despite the physical challenges of being both blind and deaf, this amazing woman became one of America’s most famous educators, and internationally acclaimed inspiring speakers. She accepted her impediments; she let them carry her into her awakening. You do the same, when you allow fear to be here and choose peace anyway.

Experiment for just one hour, one day, one week…. in the process of your spiritual awakening…. will you BELIEVE; can you let the flow of life carry you into the present moment where inspired action arises in its own timing? In doing so, you let go of the unconscious patterns contributing to your worry and stress. And let’s face it… isn’t spiritual awakening only possible by choosing to allow peace, happiness and freedom to be here now, even when, or especially when we don’t really feel like it?

Dare ya!

What is happiness?

by Cheryl Brewster
YouTube Preview Image

What is Happiness? How do you define it? How happy are you? What precipitates your happiness? This video blog is unusual in its perspective… what if happiness is not actually contingent on the results that we create? What if it’s a state of being that is already inherent inside of us? It’s easy to think happiness is dependent on things outside of us…. that’s the way most of us were raised. But consider the musings of Vernon Howard, a proponent of “new-thought….”

“The truth is always intact and so are we. There is nothing to do but enjoy the trip. Banish the idea that you are responsible for results. Make up your mind to enjoy the journey for it is your moral duty to be happy.”

And reiterated by Barry Neil Kaufman in his book Happiness is a Choice:
“If we’re so smart. why aren’t we happy? Because we have not yet created the vision to support such a wonderful reality. But we can! We are the belief makers!”

I believe that as we take responsibility for changing our beliefs on happiness, we become “Conscious Changemakers.” How? Kaufman’s perspective is that we need to take happiness off of it’s pedestal and make it the achievable option that it is by:

1. Implementing simple decisions to make happiness THE priority in your life.
Start small…  what’s the first thing that comes to mind? What if you made this a true priority? What would your life look like a week from now? A month? A year? And that’s just ONE small change… can you imagine???

2. Refusing to believe that unhappiness  now gets you happiness later.
It’s just not true! Even though you may experience various emotions and some of them not so pleasant… choose the happy ones and see what happens!

3. Refusing to believe that unhappiness is a natural, unavoidable characteristic of the human condition.
Not so! Unhappiness follows from certain beliefs and judgments, which we choose and which we can change.

And from my personal experience:
The more I allow intuition to lead, the more I let go of false beliefs that have held me captive in the past, the more I experience true happiness and prosperity on all levels.  But I must be willing to let go of the old!

Again from Kaufman….
“We weren’t born unhappy; we learned to be unhappy. And, in addition, we have become masters at teaching and reinforcing unhappiness. In small, seemingly insignificant ways, we “save the day” but lose another life to misery… when we support happiness, we teach love, peace and acceptance. We have the choice.”

Listen to the challenge from this video blog… what is happiness to you? What wants to move through you? Will you let it?

What is Intuition?

by Cheryl Brewster

YouTube Preview ImageThis youtube video defines intuition as your inner knowing without the use of conscious reasoning…. when you have a “gut sense or just know”  important information.  Intuition is the “zest to life… what calls you to hidden delights in life (prosperity) that you may be overlooking or resisting in some way.

Important questions to ask yourself:

  • What is intuition to you?
  • Remember the last time you had a valid intuition?
  • What were you doing at the time?
  • How did you “know” this was a valid intuition?

Your own experience is the best intuitive training…. the question is, are you taking the time for it? Especially when it comes to prosperity in your life or your business?

Consider the Research
Michael Ray, PhD. has taught Personal Creativity in Business as a course in Stanford’s MBA program and shares five truths about intuition, that many business people find difficult to accept at first.  Dr. Ray believes that as people begin to apply these truths, they begin to develop their intuition in spectacular ways-in business and in life:

1. Intuition must be developed.
Each of us has intuition within us, but we must accept the responsibility for our individual style of intuition and its development.

2. Intuition and reason are complements.
It is the combination of reason, experience, information and intuition that is so powerful.

3. Intuition is unemotional.
It is paying attention clearly to the most appropriate alternative that comes from the creative Essence.

4. Intuition requires action.
Follow-through is key to successful use of intuition in business. It requires timely hard work.

5. Intuition is mistake free.
There will always be “rational” reasons to support intuitive leaps. Beyond this we must have absolute faith that the intuitive part of us does not make mistakes.

Those who accept using intuition in business do so in many ways; decision making, creative planning, product development, stress management, team building, communication, and many others. As people begin to see business as a place for Conscious Change which includes awareness of human, personal development, they begin to see advanced intuition as critical to both personal and business growth. They begin to use intuition to discover and take action on the unlimited innovative ideas that affect their personal and professional lives.

It all begins with Awareness and the Choice to develop Intuition further; to differentiate it from the voice of fear or the inner critic.  Consider the impact this could have in your personal and professional life!

If you find this topic insightful and intriguing, consider developing your intuition further as it relates to prosperity in the services offered by Cheryl Brewster of The Intuitive Life both local and online:

1. A clairvoyant reading to determine where you’re at and the possibilities at play
2. Private coaching through an Intuitive Mentor Program
3. Group Teleseminars focusing on Intuition and Prosperity
4. Intuitive Self-Study Prospecting Program

What is intuition to you? Make it count!

What is a Clairvoyant?

by Cheryl Brewster
YouTube Preview Image

The  youtube video above, explains what being clairvoyant is all about.  We are all psychic/clairvoyant/intuitive and each one of us has the capability of developing these abilities further. Clairvoyant means “clear seeing” which generally refers to the “third eye,” or the multi-sensory sixth sense over and above  our five senses.  I love encouraging my clients to use their third eye more consistently for important benefits including:

1. Increased perception
This is what allows you to “read” information and energy beyond the physical sense of sight. Remember that thoughts may be invisible but they carry an energy signature that can be read and interpreted.

2. Greater intelligence
Wouldn’t it be great to avoid potential problems by having a “heads-up awareness?”  That’s what your clairvoyant abilities can help you with, which is an important skill in any situation, particularly in business or in relationships. In hiring interviews or first dates, practice looking beyond the physical person and notice any visual images on your mental screen. What do the images mean to you or remind you of? Use intention to hone clarity; this image is appearing for a reason… what message is it conveying?  Use discernment to interpret what these images mean to you and the possible connection with this new person… how will this information help you with decision making (yes/no) and ongoing communication?

3.  Third eye focus contributes to single-minded focus.
Third eye focus helps you honor the bigger picture of your life by staying true to your purpose. Single minded/third eye focus helps to target your goals so that you are less distracted/susceptible to external influences or negative internal patterns that have unconscious negative agendas (e.g., procrastination to keep you “safe” from stretching through a comfort zone). Third eye focus supports internal self unity, healing any internal conflict with the self; those push/pulls that keep us stuck in the status quo.

To learn more and enjoy consistent, support and practice in developing the art and science of being clairvoyant, see information on the “Take Your Stand” Teleseminars designed to support prosperity by expanding and practicing the ABC’s of Intuition – the foundation to clairvoyant/psychic development.

Yes! Bust the procrastination habit with intuition!

by Cheryl Brewster

Are you feeling a tad overwhelmed? Or maybe a lot?!

I can SO relate and if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s this…. procrastination like overwhelm is a form of resistance that can easily become a habit. Unconscious, unhealthy habits will catch up with us.

The cool thing about growing your intuition, is that it’s an incredible diagnostic tool.  It will:

  • Let you know what you need to become more aware of
  • Help you identify strategies to become more effective
  • Never indulge in blame or self-recrimination
  • Offer immediate solutions
  • Help you remember your passion, so you have the energy to tackle procrastination and other bad habits

“Letting it….” That’s the key… what if we’re actually sitting on “easy,” but refusing to see our lives that way? Hmmm…. that could put a whole new twist on why we procrastinate!  Intuition needs to become a discipline of listening. And then one of action… I call that the willingness to Take Your Stand, to commit to a deeper level of the meaning of life; the willingness to do things differently.

We can all fall into the procrastination pit from time to time, but when too much procrastination shows up, it’s a red alert telling you that something is not in alignment and needs to be addressed immediately. Procrastination keeps you from enjoying true prosperity in life so it’s important to stay on top of it. Here’s a list of the top reasons why we procrastinate and what we can do about them:

1. Not having a clear objective
2. Resisting things you find unpleasant
3. Big projects that seem too daunting to start
4. An inability to make decisions
5. An Inability to prioritize
6. A fear of failure
7. Distractions
8. Vague goals
9. Trying to do too much

To get back into alignment as quickly as possible,
1. Think of your Intuition as your Inner CEO, the one with all the answers, whose expertise is guiding you to success. Take a moment to get centred, clear your mental screen, breathe, and ask it about the problem. Notice what you get. Be willing to let go of what’s no longer effective and ask for the solution or guidance to help you change your game plan

2. If there is chronic procrastination in a certain area, ask your Inner CEO for more details – this can surface internal conflicts you were not aware of, so you can course correct

3. Intuitive discernment can be a bit tricky because we may be listening to our fears rather than our internal CEO… how can you tell the difference? The bottom line is practice, practice, practice and the willingness to risk and make mistakes along the way. A general rule of thumb is that even in the midst of uncertainty, the voice of intuition will have specific solutions, it will have a sense of calm or lightness, and you will feel empowered rather than disempowered. The voice of fear will have scarcity attached to it, have heavy or harsh tone, and will leave you feeling scattered or ineffective rather than capable and hopeful.

4. Ask yourself if you will continue to allow procrastination to be more important than the your purpose, passion, goal or objective

5. Know what your distractions are and minimize them; set a timer where you will do NOTHING else but your task.

6. Be specific; Most procrastinators have a hard time defining quantities. We think everything needs to be done NOW. Define one goal; what are you going to do, when, and for how long?

7. To combat fear of failure…. mix it up, try different things: Some goals you can agree to do really “badly”; let go of perfection and needing to get it all done NOW

8. Keep your energy field clean and clear by focusing on “Your Stand” – that present tense, positive mindset that keeps you in the NOW. Meditate on it, visualize and use your clearing techniques; this helps to reduce fuzzy thinking and puts your Intuitive or Higher Self back in the driver’s seat.

9. Make your vision bigger than any obstacles that come up by knowing what inspires you and creating the time and space for it.

This is a big topic; the bottom line is to be kind, gentle yet firm with yourself; intuitive development is a process – it takes times, consistency and commitment. Like any other muscle, your intuitive muscle is made stronger through resistance. Stay positive and motivated by continually expanding your positive, high frequency energy field by visualizing and enjoying the fruits of your labour as if they are here NOW. That is you taking your stand for both prosperity and advanced intuition. And that, is what helps to bust the procrastination habit!
