When I wake up in the morning I try to begin my day with gratitude and an emotional intention of positivity. I avoid emails and social media when I awake. There is no need to fill my first thoughts of the day with another’s energy before establishing my own.
There is nothing more empowering than taking the wheel of your life. Choosing to dance as a career instead of following the lead of an academic based family freed me from living for others. When you live proudly without apology, you are living from a place of faith. You create your own path. Society doesn’t dictate your actions or influence your intentions.
It never feels good to be around fear or ego energy especially if the intention you set for the day is filled with faith and positivity.
I’ve become selective about the people I surround myself with as well as what I watch and engage in. I have no problem leaving a scenario which doesn’t feel good to me if there is no space for transmuting it into something positive. I have no time for drama and get no high from engaging in it. I’m selective as much as possible of the imagery that I see and what I listen to. Our unconscious mind records everything which influences our perspective and beliefs.
We are all here for different reasons and to accomplish different goals in life. Knowing what drives your actions is extremely helpful. Being driven by passion, faith, truth, and authenticity is much different than being driven by fear, insecurity, control, and competition. Setting an intention to live from a place of positivity and love is powerful.
Say “Out” to every negative thought that comes into your mind. No person, place, or thing has any power over you, for you are the only thinker in your mind. You create your own reality and everyone in it. ~Louise L. Hay
Pay close attention to what drives you, and set your intention to create only what you desire.
