What to do When You Feel Uninspired


inspire

How often do you feel uninspired?

What do you do when you keep procrastinating just because you don’t feel the urge to get started on a particular project?

What can you do to inspire yourself?

There are times when I have had projects to pursue: times when I know exactly what to do, how to do it, plus have the resources needed to get started. But for some reason, I couldn’t get started because I felt so uninspired.

Most times it is because my mind is stuck on what things are supposed to be, or shouldn’t be. Other times, I’m thinking about what’s wrong and how wrong it could get. And that’s how the matrix holds each of us captive. We find ourselves knowing what to do and not doing it. It is like you are aware that fire burns but you keep playing with it. You are aware that when you don’t take action nothing will be accomplished, but you don’t take action. What kind of BS is that? lol.

The underlying reason is because we are afraid. Note that we are either hosts of progress or hostages of fear. If your fear doesn’t drive you, you are its hostage. 

One of the ways to snap out of this mind block is to inspire ourselves. However, how do you inspire yourself when you don’t want to do anything? Apparently, you’ve consciously and/or subconsciously driven yourself into this emotional/mental mess. This also implies that if you feel lethargic, and you have lost the grip on how to get out. Yet, it is still up to you to get your stressed-behind out of this mess.  What do you do?

Here are a few steps to get you started on inspiring yourself. 

  1. Know that it is your responsibility to feel good and inspired. Remove the blame from anything or anyone out of yourself. Get a grip of your mind and make it your hostage. Direct your mind to do what you want instead of the other way round. Talk yourself into taking full responsibility of your emotions. 
  2. Remember, or find your why. Go back to the drawing board of why you want to accomplish that goal. For instance, during days when I don’t feel like writing or making videos to inspire my audience, I remember why–which is my life purpose. I know that when I inspire others through the different ways I do, this is the time I feel alive the most. Therefore, find your why.
  3. Meditate. Yes, meditate. Some people think that meditation is for monks. But I attest to the power of meditation. Meditation has helped me overcome some of the ugliest situations in my life. Meditation has rewarded me with a lot of clarity, enthusiasm and unconditional inner peace. It’s mainly through meditation that I get the ideas I write, and record about. The benefits of meditation are inexhaustible. To get started, you can check out my simple morning meditations on gratitude and divine love. The links are: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgMpYijDTjU  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yk7JhGZOZvU I also suggest that you start your day off with meditating. It makes all the positive difference. 

  4. Exercise: Once you change your physiology, your mood will change. Stand up, stretch, stand in your power pause, go for a walk, do yoga or whatever you can to get moving. This will amplify the production of your happy hormones and then get you inspired to take action. 
  5. Listen to affirmations. Here are a few I’ve recorded. Links: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cHyp6f8_jp4   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXf_l7hpFqw   
  6. Listen to your favorite music.
  7. Listen to inspirational messages. Some of these messages can be accessed by clicking on these links:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0dl-rhzBgOY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flCW8oaRQYM
  8. Read a good book. You can read, Do Not Force it, Tap The Good — guaranteed to inspire you. Link to the book – https://www.amazon.com/Do-not-Force-TAP-GOOD/dp/1461079098

Tap The Good

8. Hire the services of a transformational coach or counselor. I offer 30 minutes complimentary sessions and these can be enough to facilitate your self-inspirational goals. To request for your free session, check out www.tapthegood.com/contact/

I’m certain that there are hundreds of other ways that you can employ to get you inspired. But the ones I have provided above, will create a strong foundation for you to get started on inspiring yourself. 

In the interim, do not worry. Nothing lasts for ever. Every thing will be okay. I promise.

Are you Stressed Out? Think Twice!


Often we all beaker and complain about the things we don’t have. We literally forget how blessed we are until we look around us just to see how good we have it.

complain3

  • Today if you are worried and complaining about how dull or ugly your toilet paint looks, think about those who don’t even have access to toilets.

Wah!

  • If you are worried about not having the money to take your clothes to the dry cleaners, think about those who neither have access to, nor can afford to take their clothes to a laundry mart. 

poverty

  • If you are complaining about how hot or cold it is in your house, think about those who live on the street. 

homeless

  • If you are stressed about your job, think about those who have no chance or even mindset to seek for employment or upgrade their lives. 

Insane

Whatever you are worried about today, please think twice–as you also watch this video. 🙂

Remember to be grateful as you count your blessings.:)

Three Ways to raise your Attraction-Vibration


It has been said that everything begins from within us. And it does; because indeed the image we see in the mirror will never change until we change it. When we change our internal worlds, we change our external experiences.

Image

Moreover to attract whatever we want, we’ve got to raise our energetic vibrations. When one feels good, they position themselves to manifest their heart’s desires.  However, how the heck can you feel good when your world is crumbling? Well, it is important to remember that we have choices. We can choose to feel good, or at the very least pretend to feel good—faking it, until we become it.

Below are the three things you can do to raise your vibration

  1. Make a list of 10 good things about you. Then stand in the mirror everyday and repeat these things to yourself. It is also fun to add something new to the list every day.

Image

2. Make it a habit to do something to feel good on a daily basis. It could be as simple as taking a nap in the afternoon; or eating an ice     cream (not too much though J), or taking a walk; or watching a comedy movie.

Image

3. Imagine a candle burning in your heart all day. This works miracles on your psychic. Stretch this exercise further by imagining that  the candle blows out every time you worry or stress. You could also make it more fun by placing a dollar in some place every time the  candle in your heart blows out…also implying that you spend a dollar for every worrying-moment. At the end of each week, take all the  money you’ve collected and give it to someone, anyone. The less you worry or stress, the less money you will give away.

Image

If you can do these exercises on a daily basis for at least a week, your experiences will change to new and better ways that you’ve probably never imagined. Please post on my blog and let me know how you feel after the exercises.

Love and light

Tip 4: Mind Your Business: In preparation of the first Annual Global Worry-free Day March 1st, 2014: 7.00A.M-7.00P.M.


Image

Today is about getting down to business…our internal businesses. The first thing we have to remember is that a worry-fast is so much like a food-fast. You don’t just jump into it and expect to stay in it. So, today, we are going to feed our minds with more tips for the worry-fast.

Tip 1:

Stay in the moment.

This simply means that you focus 100% on everything you are doing today. If it is eating, eat as if it is the best and last food you will ever eat. Chew the food, taste all the spices; feel the chunks as they move down your throat to your digestive system; and focus on the temperature of every bite.

When driving, drive as if you are driving your best car, for the last time, to the last place you will ever drive to. This implies that you pay attention to the way your car sounds as you drive; the muscles that you use to drive—as you also pay attention to your surroundings. You will realize that there’s enough to focus on in the moment.

Image

Tip 2:

Breathe:

Breathe in and out as if it is the last air you will ever have, and that your life depended on it—and it does. Feel the temperature of your breath as it goes in and out of your nostrils. As you breathe in, mentally tell yourself that you are breathing in love and peace, and breathing out worry and stress. Do this all day. When you forget, start again.

Image

Tip 3:

Mind your business:

When someone angers or upsets you, ask yourself whether it is your business or theirs. Please understand that whatever people do is their business: it is coming out of them…with the blue print of their internal representations. What you do is your business as well. When people act crazy or unfairly, it is their business. When someone insults you, it is their business. When someone cheats or does things to hurt you, it is their business. Even if someone killed you, it would be their business. Your business is to watch your reactions towards their business. Monitor your thoughts, and take control of your reactions towards their business. Focus on what is and not on what things should or shouldn’t be.  Continuously ask yourself: – “is it their business or mine?” When you stay in the moment, you will realize that the only things that really matter are the way you feel and react. Remember: we don’t experience what we want, we experience who we are.

Image

 Tip 4:

Look for things to make you happy.

Whatever we focus on, the brain will do its job to sort it out for us in our environment. The brain’s job is to employ your focus to direct you where you need to be, look or go–in order to experience whatever you are focused on. If you doubt this fact, focus on any color of your choice.  Go out to a large crowd and you will see that color everywhere; in cars, people’s clothes, building colors…name it. 

Look on YouTube for videos that will make you laugh. Watch comedies. Sing silly songs. Watch your childhood movies or TV series. Exercise.

This evening, I will post the last tip in preparation of the worry-fast. Please come back here to check for the tip.

By the way, have you checked out my book: Love, Men and Money: How to attract and retain them? It is a must-have for every woman. In the book are healing tools based on EFT and Ho’oponopono to help free one from their emotional baggage.

Happy Friday family

Tip 2: for the Preparation of March 1st: – The Global Worry-Free Day:


ImagePlease refer to the list you made yesterday of the things that worry you.

For each of the things that worry you, and their reasons, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Is this true?  Be honest with yourself. Answers such as “but”, “maybe” or “however”, aren’t valid to this question. The only valid answers are, “yes” or “no.” If your answer is “yes”, justify it by giving reasons. If your answer to this question is “no”, then move to question 3.
  2. Is this really the truth? Remember you cannot base on your past or other people’s stories to determine whether whatever you are worrying about is true or false.  For instance; if you are worried about a bill because you don’t know how you are going to pay for it; or don’t think you will get the money to pay for it, not knowing and/or uncertainty does not imply that this is the “truth”. It simply means that you don’t know, or you are not sure how things are going to materialize. The future is uncertain. The past doesn’t mean the future. So, the only truth we know is what is happening now. There is a bill to pay means just that. Everything else you come up with to validate your worry is a story, belief or memory-based.
  3. What feelings come up if whatever you are worrying about could be true? Write these down.  Do you realize that before you read this question, you were not in touch with those feelings? This implies that there is a part of you that is free from this worry and the related emotions.
  4. How would you feel if whatever you are worrying about wasn’t the truth? Write these down. As you answer this question you will realize how easy it is to shift from negative emotions to positive ones.
  5. Spend the rest of the day focusing on the emotions that you would have if whatever you are worried about wasn’t the truth. By doing this, you will be exercising your mind to focus on the good rather than the negative.

Image

Let me know how it goes.

These concepts are based on Katie Byron’s powerful healing method called “The Work.” What I challenge you to do is give yourself permission to tackle each of your worries and answer these questions unlimitedly. Once you do the work, you will realize how easy it is to achieve emotional freedom.

If you haven’t checked out my book Do not Force it, Tap The Good, this is a good time to get your copy from http://www.tapthegood.com/books.html

Love and light

STOP RESISTING IT; REST!


Image

 As justified by spiritual law, whatever we resist persists. It is hence worth noting that resisting in itself is energy; since it involves emotions, intentions and attitudes. Furthermore, metaphysically all sorts of feelings are energetic. By resisting something, we are investing energy in whatever is being resisted; and then guess what? The resistance feeds on the underlying feeling, and then continues to elevate the resisted condition. Energy feeds on energy; once it is fed with attention and intention, it is grows and expands.

In the usual way of living, this implies that once one worries about things, he/she just amplifies them. Moreover, worrying is like sitting in a rocking chair. Although one seems to be doing something, he/she is basically not going anywhere.

The viable formula is stop resisting whatever we don’t want, and then rest assured that as long as we are still alive, solutions will come up somewhere, somehow. I envisage that this attitude could be hard to exercise especially if whatever you are going through is beyond your comprehension. Nonetheless, the point in emphasis is to remember that worrying won’t improve, or solve the situation. 

Therefore, “resting” in this sense means taking your mind off the challenge, focusing on the positives in your life, and then doing little things to elevate your spirit. Once you divert your attention to loving yourself, the challenge starts taking care of itself. Considering the fact that when denied the resistance-attention, the problem/challenge tends to dissolve given that it doesn’t have your energy to feed on anymore. And this doesn’t mean that you don’t take care of your challenges. It simply suggests that you invest in a positive attitude and/or feeling towards the problem, rather than dwelling on the negatives.

Learn how to surrender completely. Don’t tell me that it is too hard to do. Remember, as long as you have a mind, there is nothing you can’t do. Everything is about focus, determination and persistence. The intention to religiously focus on the preceding attitudes is what will produce results. Resistance is wastage of energy; which energy can be diverted to being grateful. Life in itself is a gift; a miracle that we should all be thankful for every day.

Begin the day by saying “thank you” for all the things you have in your life however insignificant they are.
