Greetings and Salutations to a wonderful Tribe! Hope you are all out there creating the life you see for yourself!
We are 5 days in to our 14-day reset cleanse. If you are doing this with me and are having your ups and downs, I am right there with you. I still have an occasional struggle and want to throw it all down the drain. My mind still has the habit thought that I “need” a soda. But this is completely normal. This thought loop as been with me for the better part of 30 years. It will not change over-night and it isn’t easy. But it is worth it.
Today I started my day out with what I call a re-enforcement meditation. How is this done? Before you sit down in your quiet spot shake out the energy you have in your body. Shake your arms, kick out your legs, shake your feet, wiggle your head. Now sit down in a posture that is comfortable for you but no slouching. Really pull your spine up and feel the confidence going through your being. Clear out your mind. Now, intentionally place your goal in the center of your mind’s eye. Really focus on it. Breathe in deep and exhale out. Repeat. Now focus on the reason why you want to reach this goal. Here is how I did the thought process for my goal of completing this cleanse.
My why – to get healthy. This thought seems very simplistic and may not be enough to get me through the struggling moments. So, I then ask myself why do I want to get healthy? Well there are layers of answers for why I want to get healthy: my business, my husband, my children, my granddaughter, to really experience life for as long as I can, financially. I can then do another layer of re enforcing my why – what does getting healthy mean for my business? More confidence in reaching out to people to show them that coaching does work, that I will have more flexibility in my schedule for my family, to be able to really serve the community of the people that struggle like I did.
The steps above can really keep going for each layer of what I listed for my reason to be healthy. As you go through the steps you will really feel the re commitment right down to the center of your core. The next time you have the thought error of wanting something that is not in alignment with your goal this re-enforced thought will also be there to keep you on track.
