Is Your Brain Feeling Overwhelmed? You Gotta Listen to This Song!

mind-consciouness-neurosciencenews

Hey Sensational Soul!

Ah, the holidays are upon us. Are you feeling overwhelmed yet?

Most of us will be spending time with family, which can be both a blessing and a curse at the SAME time.

The hustle and bustle of the holidays can easily distract us from our soul’s path and our authentic happiness. This time of the year the TV commercials, movies, online and paper advertisements, the music, and everything else SCREAMS in your face that life is so wonderful, and everything is perfect.

The pressure of being in the holiday spirit for the next month AND being in it while being around family can really leave you wanting to pop a cork of two off wine bottles.

But, if you are feeling in the Christmas spirit, here is a gorgeous violin piece often played during Christmas (and, personally, my favorite holiday song): Listen To “Invierno Porteno” By Astor Piazzolla On YouTube

I have some things to tell you to help you put things into perspective and remain on your soul’s authentic path during the holidays:

Make-Believe Is Real If You So Choose It to Be So

No matter what the song says or what the image is portrayed on your TV/movie screen, it’s perception. There is no need to feel anxiety over the “should” of what you are seeing. It’s TV, it’s an image, it’s acted out- even for those paper/online advertisements.

The goal is to stir up emotional reactions from you. Luckily, we all have the power to DECIDE what we want to focus on with regards to the images we are bombarded with each day. YOU hold the power to put it all into perspective. Just because you see it doesn’t mean it’s real. And just because you don’t see it, doesn’t mean it’s NOT real either.

You hold the keys to your life. You CAN create your reality by what you choose to focus on. So, if you choose to see surface images as “real”, this your choice. We tend to believe characters portrayed by actors as “real”, why can’t we believe what we choose to believe as “real” and focus on this instead?

What you focus on expands and it comes into your physical realm the more you BELIEVE it to be real. In time and with your true conviction of it being possible, it pops into your physical realm because this is how the law of attraction works!

If you believe “all the good men are taken,” or “all the great women are not available”, then you are right. If you believe there is someone out there “for you”, well you are right! If you believe everyone else’s lives and families are much happier and have it much easier than you, then what you choose to believe is what your reality IS. However, you are overwhelming yourself by putting pressure on yourself that is NOT necessary to do AT ALL. Take a deep breath.

Remember: YOU hold the power to put it all into perspective. Just because you see it doesn’t mean it’s real. And just because you don’t see it, doesn’t mean it’s NOT real either.

Go Back to Basics During the Holidays

If your mind is feeling both overwhelmed and confused, go back to the basics of what brings you joy in LIFE itself. It’s not a fancy car, it’s not a mansion, and it’s not a huge gemstone ring either. I’m talking about what brings your SOUL joy. It’s so easy to get muddled within all the in-your-face materialistic items that you start to haze your soul’s truest joy during the next month.

Life is NOT Jennifer Lawrence jumping into a pool with her make-up flawlessly still intact on her face while wearing some expensive perfume. Nor, is it a group of people dancing around in scarves and Gap sweaters lip syncing to happy song. And don’t get me started on the luxury car commercials with the big-red bows and women gleefully jumping up and down…

Go back to basics and spend some time in nature drinking some hot chocolate, doing your Mastering Your Mindset journaling, and counting your blessings for everything you have in your life. Do this daily! But, if you are too swamped to spend about 10 minutes each day in doing this, then please commit to doing it 4 times per week. The whole goal of this is to ensure your mindset remains connected to you soul’s authentic joy.

Bonus! Doing this (especially daily) brings you CLOSER to your manifestations because you are in tuned with your soul’s needs and your authentic joy. You cannot manifest your blessings if you are feeling the OPPOSITE of blessed most of the time. The puzzle pieces come together, not fly away from each other. So, make sure to continue to put your self-love and self-care FIRST each day.

Remember Your End-Goal: Self-Controlled Soul-Authentic Happiness

The holidays can both be a lot of fun yet extremely overwhelming for us. So, when you are spending time with your family, and one or two of them start in on that negativity spiral…what do you do? You can either: A) sit there and let them continue and bring everyone else in on the negativity; or, B) excuse yourself for a few minutes (or an hour) and step AWAY from the negativity. Go outside, breathe in nature’s air, put on some joyful music and put in your ear buds, or go read a book you are thoroughly enjoying.

You don’t have to spend every single second with your family when you all are together. And you are not obligated to try and CHANGE people’s perspectives either. You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t force it to drink. If your family members ARE open to listening to what you have to say about developing and maintaining a positive mindset belief system, then go for it! I only like to talk to people who are open to hearing about it because let’s face it: people are only going to hear what they WANT to hear…meaning, they believe what they WANT to believe. It’s all perspective.

The hustle and bustle of the holidays does NOT mean you are not manifesting your life goals and desires. You still ARE because manifesting is about what you FOCUS on overall. We all have our ups and downs because we are human, it’s natural for us to have kick-ass feeling GREAT days and not-so-awesome spirited moments.

The point is, YOU are in control, and YOU determine what is your reality. And if you don’t like where your life is going, YOU have the power to change directions (even if they are small ones to start out with). You’ve got this. I totally believe in you! The Universe IS working behind the scenes and rearranging things on your path. It IS happening for you!

Do You Need A Refresher?

And if you need a refresher with your mindset because you need to clear out what no longer serves you for your soul’s highest happiness, you just need to declutter all the crap from your mindset beliefs, clear out all the clutter in your surroundings, and get your life back ON TRACK on your soul’s path of manifesting all your desires; I am running 12 transforming days of UNBLOCKING all the crap and CREATING your fresh, kick-ass, authentically joyful mindset beliefs- and life- with digital, audio, and (of course) Mastering Your Mindset journaling training to help you re-align and get back onto your soul’s path!

It’s only $17 and it will have you feeling rejuvenated, refreshed, and completely CLEAR with your mindset and your soul so your manifestations will speed up into your physical realm! It’s always good to take inventory and re-evaluate what it is your soul TRULY wants in your life. Click the purple button below to know all the details of Unblock into Alignment: The Deep Dive!

Have a wonderful week and keep on keeping on, you’re doing a GREAT job. I’ll see you in the 12-day mindset and soul-transforming program!

When You Are Feeling Low Vibe- Transparency

037e6fdb6ca68da89bdac12df4f357f2--modern-impressionism-white-art

Sensational Soul!

We all have these days…you just feel like things are taking so long to come to fruition. I understand how you feel. I know it can be frustrating when you have your life goals and desires you really want in your life- and you really want them now. Why is it taking so long? Why is it so hard? Why do others seem to obtain so easily?

Believe me, I, too, have asked these questions. You see last year during this month I had NO idea I was going to publish a book. I always wanted to write and do something to help others, but I didn’t actually see myself doing it. I was scared. I feared failure. I feared what others would think of me.

Today I am feeling low vibe. I am going to be transparent with you for a moment and disclose something: when I envisioned my book being published, I envisioned thousands of souls all over the world using it to help them manifest their dreams and a better life for themselves! I published at the beginning of January. I have sold hundreds of books, I have received SO MANY success stories from souls all around the world from my book. And today? Today I am feeling sorry for myself because I thought by now, the end of May, my book would have reached MANY more souls around the world. I thought by now I would have had thousands of sales- which means thousands of LIVES are being changed for the way better!

I spent today napping, writing, watching reruns of Big Bang Theory, and just reflecting on why it seems other people can quickly achieve their goals and it’s been almost 6 months since I’ve published and I feel like I am so far behind with my business, Manifest It!, as Journal Girl Jaclyn. These last 2 weeks I have lost email followers, people have dropped out of my free Facebook group, I just feel like I’m totally losing my connection to the souls I really want to help. I work full time for physicists, so I am often feeling like “I don’t have enough time to grow my business”. This is my story I am telling myself, anyway, for the reason why I am moving at a turtle-like pace these past few months.

This is where I know I am human: I am comparing myself and my own success to other people. We all have ups and downs, we are human after all. I received another 5-star review on Amazon today and it totally lifted my spirits! I am truly thankful to be able to help the hundreds of people I have helped so far. So why am I so melancholy?

I am trying to control everything again…I cannot do this because this only pushes the manifestations further away. I’m telling you all of this because I learned last year that you CANNOT try to control your surroundings, or your environment. You cannot and should not try to FORCE anything. And we ALL have gifts that influence the world, we cannot and should not compare ourselves to other people’s success.

When you have a low vibe day like this it is important to remember and remind yourself of ALL of your blessings- even the small ones like that yummy piece of chocolate.

So this is what I asked myself today during my Mastering Your Mindset journaling:

1) Why do I feel so sad?

2) What has happened in the last year that I am proud of happening?

3) Around this time last year what was I hoping for in my life?

4) Why do I want to manifest what I currently want to manifest?

5) What are my current challenges in overcoming my blocks in order to manifest what I am currently manifesting?

6) What do I love about myself and about my business? What do I love about my life? What do I love about my relationships with others?

7) Feeling the way I do today is only a “story” I am telling myself. Why is it only a “story”? What can I say, think, feel, and do to rebuke my “story”?

Try these out in your mindset journaling and let me know what you come up with, you’ve got this! Remember, everything is temporary, even your own thoughts and feelings. It’s okay to not be okay sometimes; but, don’t allow it to unpack and live within your mindset. Acknowledge your thoughts and feelings, and allow them to pass through you because they are only “stories”.

Focus on the thoughts and feelings that empower you and lift you up. Surround yourself with a support system that elevates you. And most of all, focus on what you DO WANT because the Universe has a special time and a special way for your soul’s highest happiness. It can be hard to realize this sometimes. TRUST the Universe, it IS manifesting exactly what you want. Relax, have fun, and enjoy your soul’s path along the way.

Tomorrow is a new day. Usually having low vibes are followed by wonderful breakthroughs. A wave pulls back before it surges forward. A bow pulls the arrow back before it propels forward. You’ve got this! Keep going!

Carpe Diem!

The JOY In Your Journey

20180518_214603

Some of my favorite teachings are from Dr. Wayne Dyer, Buddha, Abraham Hicks, and Rumi. All teach the importance of love and joy in life. All teach that the past is history, so there is really no reason to dwell on it. And all teach that in THIS moment, your present, your life, YOU hold the keys to your future. You create your reality.

Every Friday in our Facebook community, Manifest It!, I give free Mastering Your Mindset prompts to help you SHIFT from negative limiting thoughts and into more EMPOWERING and POWERFUL mindset beliefs.

You get a choice: you can choose to continue to dwell on the past. Or, you can take control of your mindset, take control of your present, and CREATE your future using the power of physics to help you manifest your NEW REALITY into your physical realm.

Here is a sneak peak of my manifesting methods given every Friday in the closed Facebook group:

Today we are going to utilize the power of affirmations! When you write with CONVICTION, and you do it DAILY, you start to imprint into your subconscious what you are consciously training. And then your mindset starts to SHIFT because it feels like second-nature to you. Are you ready!? Let’s do this!

Journal out the following:

1) What are some things that bring feelings of calm, joy, and inspiration to you (it can be actions that you take, smells, colors, whatever)? List at least 15.

2) Pick your top 5-7 things from number 4 and circle them. THEN, each time you perform your mindset journaling PAIR THEM TOGETHER. So for example, if you love the smell of vanilla, light a candle and then do your mindset journaling while it is lit. Another example would be if you love to do yoga, do your yoga to uplift you and then perform your mindset journaling right afterward. Open the channels of training your mindset!

3) What are your daily non-negotiables? We all have busy lives, but if we REALLY WANT our manifestations, we must COMMIT to being consistent with giving ourselves the mental and physical loving care that we DESERVE. So from now on, you are going to have daily non-negotiables. What are they? List at least 5-7 things you are COMMITTING to thinking/feeling/doing each day starting NOW!

__________________________________________________________________________________________

Join the group to receive the FULL powerful mindset shifting exercises! Remember, affirmations are used to TRAIN your mindset. And just like in learning how to drive a car, you CAN learn how to drive your mindset. And you CAN shift your mindset from a limiting place and into a more positive and abundant place.

The “Vibrational Essence” that Abraham Hicks speaks of is exactly what I am teaching: getting into your place of JOY and manifesting into your physical realm because you are ENJOYING your journey. When you plead from a place of “need”, you subconsciously push your manifestation AWAY from you. So, get into your place of JOY, get into it every single day. Train your mindset to FOCUS on joy and on feeling GOOD in general in order to reach that vibrational essence of what you desire.

Relax, release, and surrender to the Universe’s timing and the “how” of receiving your new reality. It IS manifesting, the Universe works behind the scenes and as soon as you STOP clinging to the need of your desires…BAM! They instantly manifest into your physical realm.

You’ve got this! I totally believe in you, KEEP GOING! And have a great weekend!

Carpe Diem!

Just When You Start To “Give Up” On It- The Universe Delivers!

20180510_190816

I want to share something with you:

I manifested SO MUCH into my life last year. I have been currently manifesting MORE things into my life and lately I have been having trouble manifesting something I REALLY want. I have to remind myself that the more I OBSESS over it, the more need and attachment I am giving to it- which actually pushes it away because I’m subconsciously thinking this:

Where is it? Why isn’t it here? When is it going to get here? I don’t have it and I don’t understand why I don’t have it. I don’t have it and when am I going to get it? Why don’t I have it yet?

When you desire something SO BADLY, you are actually pushing it away because you are subconsciously focusing on the LACK of it existing.

______________________________________________________________________________

So what did I do? I started doing my Mastering Your Mindset journaling around being relaxed, calm, and trusting the Universe KNOWING it’s manifesting and I already have it. I write with conviction such as:

It is so easy to be me 100% every single day and receiving…

I receive…every single day in total and complete ease just for being me!

I am so thankful I can be relaxed, calm, and go about my day knowing I easily receive…!

The Universe is ALWAYS providing…to me in total ease because all I have to do is just be me!

The Universe loves me and wants me to have…!

Every single day I easily receive…just for getting up and living out my purpose in this Universe, it is SO EASY to do this!

_____________________________________________________________________________

I have been doing my mindset journaling along these lines for 3 weeks now and guess what!? I was just “giving up” on my desire of REALLY wanting it so badly and I found out today that I am receiving something that helps PROPEL me towards it even more! Yeah!

So my point is, want your desires. Keep your end-results in mind, but don’t obsess over them manifesting into your physical realm. Relax, trust, believe, and KNOW the Universe is manifesting them- don’t give up on them, but “give up” on them in that you give up on the TIMING of them.

It’s total magic when you SURRENDER and allow the Universe to deliver your manifestations because they come much more quickly!

PS- Tomorrow we start Mastering Your Mindset, the FREE 3-Day Bootcamp in a private group on Facebook! If you’ve purchase my hugely selling book, send me a message with either a photo of you holding my book or of your order confirmation and I’ll add you to the group! BONUS! If my book has helped you, leave me a review on Amazon and I’ll send you bonus 2-day Mastering Your Mindset transformational materials!

As always…

Carpe Diem!
