Do you desire something different in your life? Many (if not all) of us do. Some of the common human desires are:
· To increase financial abundance
· To increase love & connectedness with others
· To increase romance
· To increase a sense of purpose and/or impact on the world
· To know oneself and live authentically
If there is something that you desire to be different in your life, and you haven’t yet achieved it, then there must be obstacles in the way.
Try this fun (if silly) exercise to help you become aware of what is blocking you, and working on removing it.
Set your table with the utmost beauty. Set out for yourself a treat that you enjoy (be it steak or chocolate cake!). Dress up. Add some red candles, a red rose, a heat-resistant bowl with water, and paper and pen. Settling yourself at the table, light the candles. Now, write down all the obstacles you recognize, such as self-doubt, feelings of unworthiness, feelings of lack, and so on. Remember to be explicitly honest with yourself. No one else is going to read this, it is between you and the Universe. When you are finished, light that paper from a candle. Let the paper burn and then drop in into the water to extinguish the flame. Imagine all of your blocks softening and becoming easy for you to remove. Imagine them melting away. Now, enjoy your treat. Savor each bite, as you to focus on all of the wonderful (delicious!) things that you have made room for in your life by removing your obstacles. Imagine abundance of every kind coming to you with ease. Set the rose out where you can see it, and let it remind you of the negative energies that you have banished from your life.
