Tuesday Tips is a weekly strategy guide to the game of life. Strengthen your character by doing things that make you feel good, gain manifestation powers by directing your thoughts, attract the experiences you want by projecting the emotions you want to feel, and level up by just being you. Let's play!
1. Support art and your art will support you.
If you want people to patronize your work, patronize theirs. Look for the value in what everyone's creating around you. When you invest in someone else's work, you encourage them to make more and do better, which in turn will inspire you to do the same.
Documenting my experiences as often as I can has become the easiest access point to the Now that I've found this week. I release my thoughts and experiences as they come and don’t think about them much, because I’m always in the Now looking for new things to stream. It's like literally streaming my head off—my mind is something I continually shed. Weird, and awesome.
3. Get what you want in real time.
Think about what you want, then stop thinking until you get it or forget it. Try it. It works. 100% guaranteed.
4. Win an argument.
If you want to win an argument, stop talking and stop thinking until you either win or forget. Also 100% guaranteed.
5. Stop reminiscing.
Even if memories of an experience make you feel good, they're still pulling you outside of the Now. If you make a decision to stop thinking about the past, when you're in the moment you'll make a lot more effort to enjoy it because you know you won't be thinking about it later.
6. Feel inspired.
When you can't feel inspiration, meet it halfway. Take any sort of deliberate action to shake things up. Go for a walk, buy a book, or start a new hobby. As soon as you get caught up in the moment long enough to forget you're not inspired, you'll be inspired.
7. Go to bed feeling good.
You'll have good dreams and you'll wake up feeling as good as you did when you went to sleep. It makes it so much easier to get in an increasingly better mood every day, instead of having to start over every morning.
8. Trust your gut.
It's always right. If you can't make a decision, quiet your mind by counting or breathing and ask for the answer. You'll hear it every time.
9. Feel the way you want to feel.
Danielle Laporte wrote this amazing article about choosing how you want your experiences to feel. Take the time to think about each segment of your day, then set an emotional intention. It WORKS! Here are some of her examples:
I want my money-making to feel like walking though a vineyard, surveying ripeness, a production of sun and earth for craft and pleasure.
I want my word to feel like gold bullion.
I want my laughter to feel like electric pineapple children.
I want the end of the day to feel like a happy quiet baby.
10. Effortlessly lift your mood.
Combine this mantra with deep breathing: "Breathe in and raise your vibration. Breathe out and release your resistance."
11. Look pretty and be pretty.
Get a photo-timer app for your phone (I use this one) and photograph yourself doing mundane tasks. Smile while you do it. You'll be instantly transported to the Now, where you'll enjoy your task and create lifestream content while you're at it.
12. Let life take the driver's seat.
The more you let go, the more it flows. Make feeling good your only job and let life take care of the rest! It's easy if you allow it to be.
