Hey so the first lesson by Vishen Lakhiani is creating Bold Visions.
You can watch the video here.
This is exactly what I wrote about in my last blog post. I love it when these things happen, things line up and I get the same “message” or “lesson” over and over again, It’s like the universe is directly talking to me. It’s really been happening A LOT these days.
Vishen was in complete debt, but in miraculously short amount of years he turned everything around and began to live his dream life…very inspiring story.
“how did I get there?” “In my early 20s I made a list of everything I wanted.”
“Ask what and why not how and when.”
“The How and when comes through inspiration, asking these questions take you out of flow.”
“The Big Questions you must ask yourself is…”
“Where would you live? What would your house look like? What time would you wake up? What would you do in the morning? What would you do in the first half of day? Who would you have lunch and dinner with? What would your friends be like? What are your clients like? What are your relationships like? What do you like about each other? What would you do at night? Who would you do it with? What would your thoughts be as you go to sleep?”
“What is your mountain? (What is your life mission) Then Ask… Am I growing? Am I contributing?”
Before I even watched this video I’ve already answered all of those questions when I was Journaling about my ideal life. Which is the practice recommended by Rhett Bise. A practice that’s lead to me creating this really amazing, vivid vision…
Instead of making a list, by making a journal you can put WAY more detail in it, and get wayyyy more excited because you are writing it as if it already happened. And IMO way more believable than a list because you are creating a whole story around it to tie everything together. And I also recommend you get detailed about the kind of man (woman) you are in that ideal reality as well.
Just a quick update on my personal life. So I had to do 24 hours of community service hours this weekend so I can finally get off probation. And it just so happens I pick this particular one where I had to spend all weekend in this very nice hotel helping out doing fundraiser during a leaders workshop that was held for 4H (a child development program). Well wealth has been something that I’ve been envisioning for myself, after journaling about it a few days ago with that practice I was telling you about. And I’ve also been affirming in front of a mirror, “I am a being of great fortune.” And I believe those intentions has already been responded by the Universe.
Me and my roommate also “re-connected” about our business plans for the future, well a business that’s already started and we know for sure that money is going to come in real soon. But the talk we had this weekend, really re-ignited the excitement and the passion. And this all took place this weekend.
And I thought it was funny that this event was at a workshop. Because I’ve always wanted to go to the awesome workshops held by some mentors that I respect and admire but they are all out of reach for me now, but I still imagined myself at workshops. And here I am at the first workshop ever, even though I didn’t attend any of the classes cause I was working…
I got served free fine meals as well. In a fancy, big ass lecture hall of the main lobby of this hotel. Where food was served by MSU hospitality students dressed up in all black. For the two days I worked, I got two free lunch and dinner, LOL! I got to connect with older people too which was cool.
What else have I been doing besides working at this hotel? EFT tapping release in the bathroom every now and then, inspired by Erika Awakening’s new articles and also her recent email. And I would notice dramatic difference in the way people interacted with me after I did some tapping. And I would also set the alarm clock on my phone for 15 min, find some comfortable couch to sit in and close my eyes and envision. (my ideal self and my ideal life.)
I’m definitely beginning to understand that emotional clearing is the single most important work we must do to really start growing and manifesting what we want. It seems to me that emotions are the glue that stick self limiting beliefs on us, and old emotions literally create blocks, and impede our growth.
Call it emotional clearing, call it shadow work, call it self inquiry, release, self-acceptance. It’s all the same thing. And it’s what’s going to cause my breakthrough. Stay tuned.
