As our regular readers know, Wednesdays are a big day on Soulspring Groups’ Facebook and Twitter pages. That’s the day we release our WOW (Word of the Week), seemingly ordinary words that are BIG on meaning!
Allow us to recap last month’s words just in cased you missed them…
MORATORIUM: According to Webster’s, a moratorium is a suspension of activity. In this day and age where everyone, especially women, are over-worked, over-stressed, and over-stretched we need a break now more than ever. Cheryl Richardson says that the average person needs to cut 30% out of their schedules right off the bat. That’s almost a third!
We’re calling for a Moratorium from all the “stuff” that doesn’t add value to your life…to all the stuff that stresses us out…to all that’s unnecessary! It’s time to make some tough choices and reevaluate your assumptions. Where in your life could you use a suspension of activity? Working from a place of your values and your priorities (Remember, after your connection to your higher power, your priorities are you, your spouse, your children – and in that order) create a No List – the things that you will no longer allow in your life. This might be a little scary but the benefits are so worth it!
EXTRAORDINARY: Just as it sounds, extraordinary is defined as what is beyond ordinary, exceptional in character, noteworthy, or remarkable. For most of us, it’s not unusual to overlook our special qualities; we’ve been with ourselves our whole lives and think of ourselves as “regular”. But “run of the mill” is quite far from what we really are.
We each have astonishing traits, strengths, and talents that make us individually extra special.
So what makes you extraordinary? Is it your sharp eye for detail, a remarkable internal GPS that always gets you to and from your destination, an artistic sense of style, impeccable penmanship, a sense of humor that makes people laugh their heads off, the ability to get the perfect amount of crunchies on top of a casserole, that special touch when caring for a loved one, enough patience to last for weeks? All of these super special qualities and skills go unnoticed because we think that everyone can do the same, yet nothing is further from the truth! Today is the day for you to shout your extraordinary-ness from the rooftops! Think of something amazing you do and claim it to be yours!
MINIFEST & MEGAFEST: Two WOW words that would be impossible to explain without comparing one to the other.
Manifest has become somewhat of a buzz word these days… “What you think about, you bring about.” Of course it’s not as easy as that (thank goodness or the rude guy at the grocery store would be hating me right now!). No, manifesting is a skill that must be developed. As we’ve practiced the art of manifestation ourselves, we’ve discovered there are actually two kinds.
A MINIFEST is manifesting on a small scale. You believe in the concept (well, kinda) but stick pretty close to your comfort zone. Instead of manifesting in a big way, you hope for what seems possible in your mind. You control and manipulate the outcome. For example, if you were to manifest a new home, instead of manifesting the house of your wildest dreams you choose to play it safe and hope for a nondescript bungalow instead. That seems more possible to you, it’s comfortable and you won’t be disappointed if something grander doesn’t come about.
Now, let’s compare minifesting to a MEGAFEST. When you megafest you don’t hold yourself back or limit your desires based on what your mind believes to be possible. You don’t get bogged down with the details, the how-tos or the what-ifs. Instead, you pull out all the stops and dream big and with feeling! You let go and give the control to the “powers that be”. You’re at peace and just know your greatest good is coming to you now. As opportunities arise and connections begin to happen, you take action in spite of fear and discomfort. Suddenly the (perceived) impossible, turns into the possible!
Remember, manifest = small, megafest = big. Our challenge to you is to megafest! We think you deserved it!
GPS: What probably comes to mind for you is the technology that took out traditional maps in one fell swoop. Beginning today we want you to think of a GPS of a different kind; your internal GPS. Just as with the GPS in your vehicle, for your internal GPS to work properly you need to know two things; where you are and where you want to go. Knowing where you are is the easy part, although you must be truly honest. Then, to decide where you want to go, you must create a clear vision and lock in your destination through goal setting, affirmations, and visualization with feeling. Now you’re set and your inner GPS will plot out the perfect course for you. All you need to do is follow the path.
GRAVITATE: Don’t worry; no physics lessons here. Instead we request that you take notice of the strong impulses that surround you; to what’s gravitating towards you most often. Do you find the people, resources, and opportunities you need to achieve your goals and fulfill your dreams are naturally around you? Or do you often find yourself complaining of your bad luck and poor timing? Studies show that living your life “on-purpose” is the primary factor required to naturally draw into your life the people, the resources, and the opportunities you need to make your dreams a reality. Once you determine you true purpose in life the Universe will support you by providing you with all you need. So what tends to gravitate towards you in your life? If it’s not what you want, instead of getting frustrated or complaining, use it as feedback. If it’s not what you want then it’s time for a change.
