We may know what we want in life but on some level are holding ourselves back from really thriving.
From my own journey and learning to thrive, I have discovered many ways that help in this process.
1 Not being afraid to express our feelings and wants from our heart is a great place to start our journey to thriving. This allows direct access to our soul and when we speak from here, we are honouring our own inner voice.
If we get judged remember it’s the other person’s opinion and we really can’t change someone else’s opinion! It can be hard to do this sometimes but the consequence of not speaking our mind can cause many things; a blocked throat chakra, being passive aggressive rather than being assertive and not honouring our own inner truth.
2 Following on from judgements, be open-minded and prepared to at least look at an alternative way to do something. If we stay closed and set in our ways, we may lose out on opportunities to better ourselves and may miss out learning more effective ways to do things.
When we look through a different lens we get a different picture. If our lens is clouded over with false beliefs or limiting closed mind views we get a distorted view of our life.
3 Staying focused on our inner truths and core values and, making sure we are working and making our decisions from this place is a sure way to success in thriving in our lives.
When we steer away from our core values we are not working in alignment with our true north, our inner compass or our gut instinct. We will then not be able to thrive in the way we really want to.
4 Learning to work with our emotions and not against them helps us to thrive in so many ways. See my last blog post on this here. Each of the emotions has a gem to guide us to where we want to go.
Emotional intelligence is something we can all learn, in my opinion starting to become aware of our emotions is a good start.
5 Knowing ourselves, our strengths, our weaknesses and our own uniqueness is essential. When we work with our strengths, work on our weaknesses (if we so desire!) and be truly ourselves, we become our own unique self, standing in our own power and being the very best we can be.
You can take a 7 week on-line journey with me where we go in-depth with each of the awareness centres of our energy system; the chakras. We ask the questions and find our own answers as to what stops us thriving and living the life we desire. Click here for more details.
