I wanted to speak with you like-minded individuals on something that has been transforming my life in ways I never thought imaginable. In light of the Spring Equinox on March 20th, I created a habit. This consisted of simply making a list of 10 things you would like to see occur in your life. Things you have always wanted to do or experience.
After these 10 things have been written out, identify 1 to 3 things you can do on a daily basis to get a little bit closer to achieving these goals! Very simple, right? Every night, I have additionally been saying to myself a mantra I found across the internet: “I pray and ask for positive healing energy to come into my energy fields and surround me all day long to release any and all negative energy patterns that I have. I give in return a positive mindset to fully release these negative issues in all areas of my life. ” So short and simple, but the poignant effects it has had on my life are ineffable.
When I began this mantra coupled with my Spring Equinox list making, I never would have thought such drastic changes would occur in my life in so many unexpected areas. We are all aware of what it is like to experience a good day where serendipitous positive things occur, right? Well, since beginning these things I have been having these moments of synchronicity occur where the events in my day to day life have been lining up with the goals that I made in the lists I am creating. I have been meeting more and more like-minded people with similar goals. This has resulted in revealing the innate oneness that exists as we come together to make our goals closer and increasingly more attainable. I began sharing these results with all of my loved ones in hopes of them having similar experiences, as I believe just as Benjamin Franklin did that all information should be freely available to everyone!
The positive energy flowing through me and my life is remarkable, just from committing to so a simple mantra and ritual that is self-fulfilling, because you are doing things you already have an innate passion for! Some monks say that it takes 21 days to form a habit, so with this Equinox ritual, just imagine where you will be 21 days from now if you stick to it. I would love you all to see for yourselves. Martin Seligman, founder of Positive Psychology, said there is a recipe to a meaningful and positive life, he calls it PERMA. Positive emotion, Engagement, Relationships (positive ones), Meaning and Purpose (belonging to something you feel is bigger than yourself) and accomplishment. If you take anything from this article, remember PERMA, and you undoubtedly will see the Universe working with you and bringing the key elements of PERMA into your life with the right mindset and practice. If you want to see my particular Spring Equinox ritual to get an idea of how you would like to do yours, just a leave a comment or email me! Feel free to do so if you have any questions or just want to talk about anything at all, actually! I would love to meet you.
Love and Light,
