    Hi Kelly and Jessica! Do you have any advice for someone who wants nothing more but to live in the moment and manifest great things and make it their number 1 job to feel good and have fun, but who finds themselves in a university setting that they love yet is oftentimes highly competitive and stressful….that’s the situation I find myself in. I find it hard to feel balanced and in the moment when I constantly have oral presentations and essays and tests in which I’m being judged. I LOVE school, but their are some dimensions that are difficult!

    Thanks. Best wishes.

    Hi Lorainne!

    Thank you so much for the note! My advice is to first challenge your beliefs about school. Magick can always happen – there are no rules that say things HAVE to be a certain way. The more you let go, the more magick can flow. The more the universe can provide solutions.

    There isn’t really an easy answer to this, because you did put yourself in this situation to be challenged. That challenge, the contrast, will help you know what you want. It’s a great environment to teach you what you want, because there is so much you don’t want.

    My best advice is to get enough sleep, exercise and nutrition first. (That was my major problem in university – not sleeping enough and partying way too much! Haha but I can’t say I regret it ;])

    Then focus on what feels best. Sometimes you may have an oral presentation but have a strong desire to do something else instead of prepare. Often, if you follow what feels better, you’ll get the content of your presentation from deciding to go with the flow and take a risk.

    Remember that you are there for fun, and that it really isn’t serious – no matter what happens. And in many fields, GPAs won’t even matter for jobs. But I know you probably want to excel! So just follow what feels good. You’ll know right away if studying feels good or bad. College really is a time to figure out your emotional navigation system – you’ll make a lot of mistakes, but you have the freedom to experiment without TOO many consequences.

    Don’t take it too seriously, and remember that you wanted to be there! Try to enjoy the challenge of “being judged”, because you know the only one judging you is you! You’re there to expand your perspective and knowledge, and you’ll get what you put into it.

    A practical piece of advice – do a list of positive aspects about the classes, projects, or tests that challenge you. What do you like about the things you MUST do? Because if you hated it that much, you could always quit! But there must be a lot of things you like about it, or you wouldn’t be there. Just focus on those the best you can, and you’ll get corresponding results.

    Hope that helps! xo
