There is no right or wrong way to live. There are people living good, satisfying lives all over the place. I just feel that with what I have learnt from Abraham, it helps to be deliberate – it makes me feel that I have control over my life and what happens to me. So today, I would like to share with you, my year end process.
Here are the steps I follow:
1. Journal appreciation about the year gone by
2. Meditate for 15-20 minutes
3. Think about what I want to achieve
4. Pre-pave the feeling of how I want to feel
5. Visualize feeling the feeling
6. Journal appreciation about where I am today about the things I wish to achieve
7. Put everything away
8. Take time out to relax and have fun
These are a general guideline. I don’t always do things in this order – because there is no one right way of doing things. Sometimes, I start with meditation, other times I start with identifying things I want, sometimes I start by appreciating where I am today.
I don’t always complete this work in one sitting – sometimes I do and sometimes it is spread over many days.
There are many variables in each step that can vary, so below I am going to expand a little on each one of these steps. Links to a webinar I held on this subject are given at the end of this blog post.
Pre-pave the feeling
Abraham teaches pre-paving as a process and over the years this process has become an integral part of my life. Pre-paving is simply laying the emotional foundation for the things we want to achieve. So reach for the feeling of how you want to feel by achieving the things you want to achieve. I do this in writing, and simply by writing a sentence about each goal that starts with the words “having this will feel like …” and taking a moment to actually feel that feeling viscerally.
Relax and have fun
Enjoying life is the end objective, and we can enjoy life in every moment. Why make happiness conditional on the manifestation of things, people and events? Life is now, now, now, now, now.
Much love and appreciation,
