Do You Need to Slow Down?

Hey Sensational Soul!

Do you need to slow down? Maybe you are “go-go-going” too much each day and week. Or, maybe you are not allowing yourself to get 7-8 hours of sleep per night (the necessary ingredient to having more energy). Maybe you are “grabbing something” to eat 2 to 3 times per day instead of sitting for about 20 minutes and enjoying your meal you prepared.

Listen, I get it. Boy, do I get it. And when I get INTO the above habits, I start noticing I gain more weight because I’m trying to substitute so much in order to buy another 5 or 10 minutes in my day.

Is my “extra 5 or 10 minutes” really worth my extra 5 to 10 POUNDS I gain?

Sure, I substitute coffee for sleep (including that yummy, sugary creamer and when I crash, I’m tired).

Yes, I substitute grabbing something quick to eat for preparing meals so that I give myself an “extra 10 minutes” to get something else done in my day (and that “something quick” is a few slices of cheese…x 7 days per week…PLUS the creamer from the coffee throughout the day…just call me the “Dairy Queen”).

When You Are Exhausted, But Don’t Realize It

I just got back from vacation and you know what I did throughout my vacation with my sweet chemist? Both of us (my sweet chemist and I) literally slept almost the ENTIRE 6 days we were “disconnected” from our daily habits.

He’s always traveling, works in a lab, gives seminars/presentations, has meetings for what feels like 24/7 for him. I’m always staring at Excel spreadsheets, posting all over the Internet (multiple times per day), taking care of the animals, giving interviews for my books/work, meeting with the physicists to help them with their needs, working with my 1:1 clients, preparing content for my VIP group, the list goes on.

Before I even realized it I was up 10 pounds…despite the fact that I’m constantly moving around.

So, I just want to take a moment and let you know those 6 days of HOURS and HOURS of sleep I got were like burn-out recovery. My latest vacation was me recovering from the type of lifestyle I was starting to adopt.

And for what?
What was I doing all of this for?
And why?
Is life really a race?
Is “success” really a competition?
And who am I competing with?

((GASP))…at me being a human being (but, it happens)…was I “doing” all the things because I wasn’t trusting the Universe to deliver my latest manifestation I am currently calling into my physical realm?

Am I ACTUALLY THAT distrusting towards the Universe to deliver my blessings?

Why are we constantly “struggling” by pushing ourselves SO MUCH each day?
Why aren’t we relaxing and allowing more?
And why are we, as humans, so addicted to the “go-go-going” and the struggle of “not enough time in the day to…”?

And…

What would happen if I just RELAX and ALLOW myself to operate in the motion of “flow and ease” each day rather than allowing myself to feel the stress and struggle of “not being enough”?

These make for AMAZING Mastering Manifasting journaling exploration. So, while I do mine, I challenge you to ask yourself the same questions around some of your daily habits during your Mastering Manifasting journaling exploration.

PS- I really want to know what you come up with, so reply and let me know! I bet you don’t even realize some of what you are “substituting for” just like I didn’t realize I was doing this past month. I realize it now, because I took 6 days to SLEEP. But, I didn’t realize just how much I was substituting for…until now because I was so wrapped up in the “go-go-going” of it all.

And you know what I found out?

While doing my own Mastering Manifasting journaling I realize I was behaving this way, adopting these self-limiting habits, because well, yeah! I WASN’T 1000% FULLY trusting the Universe’s process. Ha! Yep, I’m human, just like everyone else.

So what can I do going forward?

Remind myself that it’s perfectly OKAY to not have to hustle, struggle, stress-the-*@%^-out, and try to be some kind of super human…that doesn’t exist anyway. And did I manifest ANY of my past blessings adopting this kind of crazy, self-sabotaging behavior and habits? HELL NO.

So, even us Master Manifasters (this includes you) has our moments. After this long rant of a blog-post, I’m here to remind you to:

Take a break
Meditate
Do yoga
Go on a walk
Take a nap
Color
Do your Mastering Manifasting journaling daily
Play with your pets
Hang out with your kids playing games and reading books
Read a book
Drink some herbal tea
Drink some water (throw some fruit into it, too)
CHILL OUT and RELAX sometimes

It doesn’t mean you aren’t receiving your manifestations- you still ARE receiving them– they ARE on their way to you now. Let’s give ourselves permission to relax because we ARE allowed to do so. We cannot go from one distraction to another 100% of the time while at the same time attempting to get ahead more quickly on our journey.

Everything happens exactly how it should happen and when it should happen. So, let’s chill out, take care of ourselves mentally and physically, and keep going.

We’ve got this.
