The Waiting is the Hardest Part

The Waiting is the Hardest Part

2020 is now in full swing! I was looking at my yearly goals earlier today and feeling a big sigh come over me. I tend to feel overwhelmed if I look at everything I want to do accomplish as a whole, all at once.

After a few minutes of wondering why making successful progress sometimes feels like it takes forever to come to fruition, I stopped my limiting thoughts and reminded myself of the following:

It’s okay to take small steps as long as you keep going daily.
To keep from feeling overwhelm, plug into yourself your commitment of one goal for the week or month, depending on how long it will take to either complete it or make a big dent into it.
Put in alarm reminders onto your phone to go off on the same days each week to take forward manifesting action towards your goals.
Put in alarm reminders onto your phone to go off on the same days each week to have “me time” (ex: yoga, meditation, reading, napping, walking, swimming, etc.).
Make sure you get enough sleep, usually between 8-9 hours per night is beneficial. I will also make this commitment!
Give yourself a break and stop exposing yourself to anyone or anything that makes you feel like you’re not enough or not doing enough to reach your goals. It doesn’t mean you’re doing anything wrong, it just means your focus can be shifted by putting on your blinders so you carpe diem!

——————–

Do this starting today for the next 2 weeks. Each day during the next 2 weeks I want you to reply to my message and let me know what you did for that day to take manifesting action in showing the Universe you mean business with your desires.

Bottom Line

You are needed and you have a gift to share with others. Don’t let yourself stray too far from your path of alignment.

And if you do? It’s okay, get back into it by watching a motivational speech each day, listening to a motivational podcast, read a motivational book, create a new vision board (either digitally or physically, or both), and anything else that revs up your vibes.

There is nothing to “wait” for with regards to your desires, you’re just distracting yourself with confusions of missing out.

Your dreams are already yours, so relax. You’re doing a GREAT job! Truly. Remain open to the how and when your manifestations emerge into your physical realm. And fill in the rest of your time with more goals and celebration of everything you’ve accomplished so far in your life. You’re making more moments to celebrate.

PS: Getting out of bed each day and taking manifesting action, no matter how many steps you take, is a reason to celebrate!

XOXO Jaclyn

You’re Hallucinating!

You’re Hallucinating!

Reality is an Illusion

If you’re feeling like everyone around you is forging ahead in the pool of “success” and you’re wondering what it is you’re doing wrong, I have a secret for you:

It’s all an illusion.

I know, “What? But, Jaclyn, they literally have a lot of money, they literally have the recognition, they literally have the life, the love-life, and the career I dream to have! How is this all an illusion?”

It’s an illusion because reality is an illusion. The entire Universe as you choose to view it in its state is an illusion stemming from your observational point.

The Belief of an Atom

For years upon years scientists believed the atom was the smallest unit of matter. However, they then observed what was inside the atom and now believe the atom is not the smallest unit of matter. There are quarks, leptons, electrons, etc…

But, why did they believe the atom was the smallest unit of matter and then change their minds about their beliefs?

One of my favorite quotes is:

Knowledge is power.

I sometimes hear people say knowledge is NOT power, but I choose to observe it differently because with knowledge you are able to make decisions for yourself and your reality as you know it to be.

Without expanding your knowledge, it becomes incredibly hard to expand your consciousness. – (I’m being brave and declaring this)

Here is why I find reality as being an illusion so fascinating:

Watch TED Talk with Neuroscientist, Dr. Anil Seth, Explain Why We Hallucinate

Do you have a body, or are you being a body?

Do you believe our brain’s filtering system is one, big hallucination? Do you believe the Law of Attraction is real? Do you believe you can create your own reality? Reply and let me know!

Life & Success as We Know It to Be

When you look around and compare yourself to other people’s life, love, and career milestones, you are creating this reality for yourself. The person you are comparing yourself to is also looking around themselves and doing the same comparison with the meaning of “success”.

You could be starting your journey in your career, or you could be at the highest part of your career, and you’re still going to have fears of failure because you’re going to look around you and compare yourself to other people’s reality (version) of “success”.

It’s innate, it’s part of being human. So, give yourself a break because you’re doing so much BETTER than you even realize you are. Not everyone is going to be vocal about how you inspire them, but it doesn’t mean you aren’t inspirational at all. And no matter how much you DO inspire others, you are still going to have scrutiny from others.

Therefore, be like Eleanor Roosevelt and carpe diem your success like the phenomenal supernova that I know and you know you are, underneath your layers of fear. It’s time to OWN your success!

Do what you feel in your heart to be right — for you’ll be criticized anyway. – Eleanor Roosevelt
