Growth isn’t meant to be comfortable. Think of a seed going into the dirt, it must break out of all it has known - its comfortable shell - and engage with the soil to move into its full potential.
To EXPAND beyond where you are now will take getting uncomfortable and a bunch of willingness. But it is this effort that can unlock a whole new vibration for you to live in. Without realizing it, most of us engage in habits and patterns that block our growth and expansion. While we don't intend to block ourselves, we do subconsciously, so gaining some conscious awareness on how to shift these habits can be a game-changer.
START HERE ➝ EXPANSION MINDSET
Before we list out the 7 things to start doing, I want to help you get into an expansion mindset first. This will help you take in the information in a deeper way. All you have to do is start by tuning into your heart. You can even place one hand on your actual heart, close your eyes and take a breath. This will help connect your mind-soul-body and get you into alignment. From here, you are now ready to see the things that will help you raise your vibration and step into your expansion!
1. Give Yourself Approval
Seeking outward approval is a huge block for many. And it is an attempt that will never fully fill you up internally because it is fueled from a place within that actually feels empty within. There is often one person's opinion right in front of you who is being ignored. And it is YOURS. Your self-approval is what will unlock you from this cycle. You can begin by just asking yourself, what do I think of this? How does this feel to ME? Do I think this is good enough? Then listen for the answer. There is no one out there who will love you more than you. Once you understand this kind of internal self-approval, your confidence will sky rocket.
2. Start Your Morning with Peace
How many times have you began your day saying, "oh crap, I am late." Then you rush and stub your toe, and the day goes into a downward spiral from there. Rushing can make you less efficient. It is likely to make you more anxious, stressed and unhappy. A peaceful day begins with a beautiful intentional morning. You can start your mornings with peace by creating a spiritual morning routine using our Sacred Morning framework.
3. Embrace Great Changes
Right now we are in an evolutionary cycle, every single one of us. We have this opportunity to shift and change deep seated patterns while our old reality is collapsing. But the beautiful thing here is our ancient spirituality is also awakening. This awakening is unlocking a calm knowing that everything will be ok! It's happening to us all in different shapes and sizes. So take a breath and hang in there.
4. Stay in Your Heart
In the exercise above, we dropped into your heart. This is one of the greatest intelligence's we have; the heart field. Here is a fun fact: your heart actually generates an electromagnetic field that reaches several feet outside of your body. So people can literally feel you. And more than that, you have so much information in your feelings, but if you are in your head you will miss them. When you are in your heart, it is easier to tune into what your soul and your body is saying - from here you can make decisions that are in alignment with what feels best to you!
5. Still the Mind
Overthinking is the Ego working overtime. And you have greater access to calming your mind than you may realize. You can start by realizing that most of that chatter is not thought and you can begin to write things down that are on your mind, like tasks or processing your life, and that will help create space for more stillness. Once you have more stillness you can then start incorporating meditations into your peaceful morning and this will help activate even more stillness within. We have over 35 free meditations that you can help with this stillness.
6. Speak Your Truth
You hold this space within you that is so precious and sacred and you are the only one who has access to it. The more you suppress this voice in effort to avoid conflict, or pretend it doesn't exist, the more you close off your 5th chakra, which is all about vibrating in resonance with self. Let's take the analogy of a bottle of soda being shaken up. This represents what happens when we have emotions or our truth inside and do not share them. Eventually it comes out with a chaotic eruption and sprays everywhere. However, if we shake that bottle and then let it sit (process what is inside) and then open it there is no reaction. When you accept that you are the only one who gets to speak your truth, it makes it more fun to share.
7. Say Bye to Blame
Blame comes from holding the space of victim. And all victim truly means is that "I don't know what to do with my own power, so I give it away and then become resentful." Blame keeps you in this cycle and can lead to emotions that don't help like anger, rejection or envy. However, you are the most powerful wireless being. You have all the power you could possibly need inside of you, and learning how to use it in a healthy way will lead you to unlocking some major empowerment.
