The new year begins. So much of what we read points to visioning and planning and making this “the best year ever”. Perhaps you have been one who creates “resolutions” – or maybe you’ve given up because they never lasted. Regardless of what has been, I want to share with you something I read this morning that may help. From The Intuitive Way by Penney Peirce:
“Since your body registers only the present moment as real, start acting right now as if you already have achieved fill-in-the-blank.”
You may not be new to “act as if” or “fake it till you make it”. I’m not. Yet reading her words which I interpret as:
The body, the emotional, physical sensations that often drive our actions – is perceiving only NOW.
And NOW is merely the manifestation of yesterday’s choices.
If that’s true, then how can we move forward? We need to base today’s actions on tomorrow’s desires. We need to send a message to our subconscious any way we can. We “act as if”. We stop complaining and start affirming. We express gratitude as if we already had experienced our desire. We pause, meditate, and vision fulfillment.
What words and thoughts from yesterday will you release?
What will you affirm today?
What energy will you send to your body today?
