Hey lightworkers, it’s Mona Lisa, and it’s Intuitive Tuesday, the radio show helping intuitives introverts and empaths manifest the conscious and abundant life and business that they desire.
You’ve heard me say before that it’s so important to get clear on your desires, and today, I really want to give you a way of looking at this concept in a more concrete, specific way.
This technique that I’m about to share can really help you really get out of being “stuck” in your head and stories, and into inspired action.
A lot of us – especially as introverted, intuitive and self-aware women – know what we fear. We have a good idea about our wounds, and the things that have us terrified. Looking stupid, failing, being judged, being misunderstood, being visible, etc.
Some of you at this point may also have a good idea of your desires in your life, and what you really want to happen. Perhaps it’s more travel, freedom, peace, happier relationships, financial abundance, serving the world.
The thing is, we often don’t get specific enough about how our desires and fears play out in our lives.
And in order to get out of feeling stuck and suffocated by our fears, then we have got to pile on specific, real-life consequences of living out our desires and fears.
So first, I want you to get clear on your general fears. Write a list in your journal of a handful of general fears.
A general fear might sound like… I’m afraid of putting myself out there.
A general desire might sound like… I want freedom from my day job.
Then, for each fear, I want you to get specific about how this is playing out in your life – what does this actually mean? You can write out as many specific fears for each general fear as you want.
A more specific fear might be… I don’t want to publish my blog posts or promote my website on Facebook because I’m afraid of what my friends and family might think if I all of a sudden start announcing myself as a coach.
A more specific desire might sound like… I want the freedom to wake up in the morning and instead of rushing out the door, I want to be able to meditate, journal, enjoy a nice, slower pace, and ease into my day with a grounded, radiant energy.
Now that you have your list, I want you to go through each fear and think… what will happen if I DON’T get over this fear? How will this affect my relationships? My health? My well-being? My life?
And then go over each DESIRE and think… what will happen if I achieve this desire? How will this affect my relationships? My health? My well-being? My life?
The more REAL LIFE and specific you can get, the more powerful this exercise will be because you’re now taking it out of concepts and theories and into REAL LIFE and associating REAL pleasure and REAL pain with desires and fears.
Once you do that, refer to this list regularly– look at your desires often, and reflect on how your fears are showing up in your life, on the daily.
Remind yourself so you don’t FORGET what really matters.
Alright, so that’s all I have for you today! I hope that this has served you and I’ll see you next Tuesday for the next episode of Intuitive Tuesday.
