Welcome to Tuesday Tips, a weekly handbook on ways to feel good as a conscious creator. This week's focus is on letting go of the things that are holding you back, while taking the time to deliberately raise your vibration. We are like radio tuners projecting a signal, and we have the power to switch to any station we like. Crank your mood up to 11 and you'll hear your favorite song begin to play!
1. Say FUCK IT.
If you are experiencing the same contrast over and over, or just can't seem to shake a particular concern or negative thought, just let it go. It is so empowering to allow yourself to stop holding onto that one thing that makes you feel bad. When you let it go, it will clear itself right up. Fuck it! We're here to have fun!
2. Give up.
The only action you can take to get what you want is giving in. Let go of the desire. Feel good even though you don't have it. Quit trying to crawl back up the water slide and enjoy the ride! As soon as you start having fun, you'll see what you wanted was right in front of you all along.
3. Let go.
Every time you notice something you don't want, let it go. Count, breathe, or write–anything you can do to stop thinking and drop the thought. Say to yourself, "I can do it. I can do it. I can feel good no matter what." You can drop a thought just as easily as you picked it up.
4. Breathe better in your sleep.
Kelly and I have started listening to the universal breathing room while we sleep and it has totally transformed us! I have amazing conceptual dreams illustrating the flow of life. Kelly says her sleep is actually calm now. Try it!
5. Use that magick wand!
Did you make a magick wand yet? If you did, here are further instructions: make a wish, then believe it will come true when you forget about it. You have to be having so much fun you forget about what you wished for.
6. Look past what is.
This is the key to manifesting what you want. Let yourself stop thinking about what is for 10 seconds. Then start telling your new story. The Life Story worksheet can help you focus on your new story quickly and easily.
7. Don't care about what anyone thinks.
This goes for you too! You are not a victim of your thoughts. Any time you feel a resistant thought, or catch yourself caring about what someone else thinks of you, reply with a hearty "I DON'T CARE!"
8. If you know what you don't want, think about what you do want.
If you are experiencing contrast that makes you know exactly what you don't want, all you have to do is take one second to imagine what you'd prefer instead. Feel fat? Say to yourself, "I love it when I feel good in my body." Feel uninspired? Say "I love it when I want to work on my projects." Then find another way to feel good (basically, distract yourself), and before you know it, you'll have what you want.
10. Suck it up and do the work to feel good.
Your mood is your work. Your mood is the only thing that matters. Sometimes I go for days without focusing too much, thinking I've mastered the art of feeling good. But it's not something you achieve; it's a practice. You have to stay after it, every day. Write, meditate, count, breathe, nap, exercise, play, lifestream, or do worksheets. Just stay after those high vibrations and make them your home. Such cool things are happening there!
11. Appreciate your reality to appreciate yourself.
Sometimes it's hard to focus on things we like about ourselves. But if you consciously find things to appreciate about your reality, you'll end up finding more to like about yourself. Since your reality is a reflection of you, anything you choose to expand externally will be expanded within as well. Turn it into a game: find one thing to appreciate about everything you see. "I like your shirt. Nice stroller. Great hair. Pretty smile."
12. Remember love really does conquer all!
Choose to love and not care about anything else, and everything will work out perfectly.
13. Be an inspiration.
Lorra Fae wrote an absolutely stellar post about choosing to better oneself for the good of others. If you feel like you have no purpose, this will give you one. "Your purpose, now, is to transform for the good of everyone, not just you."
14. Stay in the Now.
Here's how: don't think, don't speak, and don't act, unless you're divinely inspired. It takes some practice, but you'll know it when you're there.
15. Show up for practice.
Kelly and I like to think of conscious creation as a pro sport, like we're playing in the NBA. Basketball players practice for 2.5 hours a day, and they have a ton of games. Directing your thoughts and intentionally raising your mood (i.e., vibration) is the practice, preparing you for all the exciting games you want to play–relationships, travel, work, etc. Put in the practice time to play your best.
16. Raise your vibration easily, effortlessly, literally.
You can use your breath to take a hot air balloon ride up the emotional scale. Just breathe and say to yourself, "Breathe in and raise your vibration. Breathe out and release your resistance." Repeat until you can actually feel your mood rising. Things will begin to look very different from your new perspective.
Enjoy the rest of your week! I love you, you're doing great! Keep up the good work!
