Simply make a list of everyone who’s hurt you in the past; parents, bitchy friends, 3rd grade teachers, everyone. Release yourself from the memories and mentally say: “I forgive you. I’m sorry, and I love you.” Repeat as needed until you have no further charge or angry feeling towards them. Go crazy, you can’t overdose on forgiveness, but you will feel a peace in your heart.
Do some major decluttering in your home and life and release anything that’s not welcome on your new journey. You’ll be surprised how light you feel when you give yourself permission to dump the old and unwanted distractions from your life.
3. Let go of your money blocks.
Work through your money memories and childhood experiences. Get really clear on your own sabotages, write a list on a piece of paper and then tear it up and throw it in the garbage or burn it.
4. Be grateful.
Appreciate everything wonderful that you already have in your life: friends, family, home, car, clothes, food, fun, laughter, hugs, pets etc.
5. Ask the Universe for what you want.
Not what you think you’re “allowed” to have, but actually what you really want and desire. A gazillion dollar business, an Oscar and that seriously cool yoga mat? It’s all the same to the Universe (and by the way, it’s okay to ask for everything).
6. Write out your ideal day.
Write out your ideal day in compelling detail – every awesome part of it. Keep a list of everything you want to BE, DO & HAVE in the next 6 & 12 months.
7. Visualize and feel your success.
Before you actually get it, pretend you do! See yourself speaking on stage wearing a glam outfit, winning that competition and, most importantly, feel it. Experience the pleasure and anticipatory little thrill in your belly. Pretend it’s already yours. Just a couple of minutes a day will make a huge difference and will help you stay positive.
8. Create an up-to-date dream board.
You can create a dream board in minutes using free photo software like Picasa or on Pinterest. Check out this blog by Denise Duffield-Thomas about how to use Picasa to make a dream board and download the free software: How to make an inspiring dream board. Once you’ve created the dream board, make it your screen saver or desktop image, print it out and look at it every day.
9. Create positive anchors.
• Change your email and computer passwords to represent your biggest dream, e.g. marriedby30.
• Schedule your dream in your calendar right now. If you schedule it, it’s more real and you’re energetically making space.
• Set a recurring reminder on your phone, e.g.: Congrats on your new promotion!
