We have all of our answers inside of us. When we become quiet and ask ourselves a “What” or “How” question we can receive the information and clarity that we need at the time to feel good, and to resolve our problems.
It is important to include the word “now” in our questions because then we are in the precious moment which is the only time that we can make a difference. The past is for us to learn from, and our future is dependent on what we choose to think and how we decide to act in the present. Change your present and reshape your future!
Therefore, to create what you want in your life, focus on what you can do now. To do this, it is helpful to first relax in a quiet place, close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Then read one of the following empowering questions out loud and write down the answer. Allow your creative, all wise part of you to flow with no limitations.
Once you have your answers, then it is important (when appropriate) to take the action you choose. For example, if you want to listen to soothing music to relax then make that a priority and allow yourself the time and place to follow up on your solution. The truth is that you are the creator of your life and you can get in the driver’s seat and have more fun, love, and success. Go for it!
