Make the Next Decade the Best Decade in Your Life
How has things unfolded for you so far this year?
Are you progressing nicely? I hope so! 😊
It’s great to reflect and take an inventory of how things are progressing around the half-year mark of each year to see where you’re at.
I have lived 4 and a half decades so far and each decade has had its own defining moments and growth experiences, just like you have had yours too (as we all have).
My focus is very much on the here and now but also on creating the most fabulous future for myself where I’m continuously reaching higher and higher levels of living.
Today I invite you to think about that too if you haven’t already.
First, how would you define the past decade of you life?
And how would you like to define the next decade of you life, what few words would you want to use to describe it?
What would you like your next decade to be like, and about?
Look at life as an adventure and have the willingness to move outside and beyond what has been before: How about making the next decade of your life the most fabulous one so far?
What’s the number one thing that you would like to change when moving into the next decade of your life?
If you had One Wish to have come true, what would that be?
Think about that for a moment before you continue reading.
Here’s a meditation for you:
In your meditation, imagine that you’re having a conversation with your older self.
Sit in front of him/her and look into his/her wise and loving eyes.
He’s/she’s older than you and has seen and experienced things that you don’t yet know, so take the opportunity to ask for life advice and guidance.
- What advice would your 60 year old self give you?
- And what advice would your 90 year old self give you?
Really listen and hear what they have to say. Are there similarities in their advice to you, or differences..?
Pay attention and listen closely.
When you have done that, also look into the future only a year from now.
See yourself a year from now in your meditation.
Where are you? What are you doing? Look around and explore the image in your mind and also look at the expression and look of your face.
How do you look? Do you look happy, confident, .. what?
And then approach yourself and ask for advice.
How would that future you – only one year from now – advice the you that you are now?
When you have meditated on these things and are ready to come back to your conscious awareness, ask yourself:
“What can I do to start creating my next decade so that it becomes the best years of my life?”
When you become clear about what you need to do and you start doing those things, Life meets you and helps you move forward into your improved future.
But if your energy is off and you’re not making any conscious choices about the direction of your life, your calling and purpose can’t make its way to you.
If you’re operating in indifference, lethargy, passiveness, (or fear), and having a ‘letting life just happen’- type of mentality, then you’re out of alignment with the flow of Life.
When you sync up with the Universe on the other hand, by the clarity you provide and the new choices you make, then the things you need next will start to show up for you and Life begins to give you more and more.
You become a match to all kinds of ideas, inspiration, opportunities and synchronistic encounters and events that helps you move into the vision you have for your life.
And it happens in a way that is easy and joyful and you will feel a deep connection with the Universe, and your relationship with it becomes a relationship that is based on love, trust and respect/reverence/honor.
When you’re in flow with Life you live in harmony with yourself and the Universe, and from that alignment, your truest (and best) life unfolds.
