Without a clear vision where are you going? It’s like cooking a meal and not having all the ingredients.
In order to move forward in life and business we need to know where we are going. In my experience, the more detailed you are, the faster you will get there. It’s like using a GPS rather than winging it. And yes sometimes we want to go with the flow and see where we end up. But when you are growing a business you want to have a vision.
Visioning is the most important step in moving forward. Before we can get the vision, we need to get clear.
The vision is a map to know where you are headed, an overview of sorts. There are many times that you may need to redesign or pause, all for the purpose of bringing that vision to life.
Today I want to share 5 steps to get more clarity. Here’s the thing, it all starts with clarity. From there you can create a blueprint and master plan and then take the action steps to achieve that vision.
1.Detox ~ It’s crucial that we detox foods and drinks that are not good for us or that numb us out. Also, equally as important, sometimes we need to detox people, technology and so on.
I’ve found the quickest way to get clear is to detox. Sometimes it’s for a day, others a week and sometimes an entire month. Think of the things or people that are clogging you and simply remove it for a day or two.
2.Schedule in some alone time. You can do this in your backyard, at a park, a local hotel or take a trip to a beautiful and peaceful location. The idea is to have at least 5 hours of quiet time, no technology and little to no interaction with others. It’s like spending 5 hours with yourself! Feel free to mix it up ~ you can go for a walk in nature, sit by a pond or curl up in a cozy chaise lounge. We are not taught to simply be still for several hours so I find that starting out it’s nice to add some variety.
3.Pray ~ However that looks to you, do it! It could be meditating, a walking meditation, writing a letter to Spirit or journalling. There are many different ways we can pray and connect to a higher power. It’s been said when we pray we are talking to Spirit and when we are quiet and meditate we are listening. So #2 and #3 go hand in hand. We need both!
4.Be aware ~ Clarity and guidance can come in many forms. Once we set the intention that we are wanting clarity, we then remove what is not serving us, next we get quiet and we pray, now we listen and notice all the signs.
This guidance can come in the form of a person, a book, a billboard, an opportunity. Signs are really everywhere! We just need to be aware and notice.
5.Say YES ~ Be open to all you are being shown; trust it and say yes to it. Notice how it feels in your body. Does it feel right? Does it feel exciting? Does you feel inspired?
The body never lies, the body can’t lie, this is why I’m a huge fan of checking in with it, how does it feel? We often have about 5 seconds before our mind/ego takes over, so notice that initial reaction. If it’s a yes, write it down and go with it.
The most important part is to say yes and take action once you are clear. This could change but from my experience the energy of acting after asking will only make the downloads come faster and more often. It’s like building a muscle. The more I ask and the more I act on it, and at least try it out (whether it works out or not), the more clarity I receive on a regular basis.
It’s really all about opening ourselves and trusting the guidance will come in expected and sometimes unexpected sources.
Once you’re clear and have created a roadmap, the mind will follow, it just needs that map. And that starts with taking some time and getting clear.
Here’s to you, friend, and getting clear on your vision. The world needs what you have to offer. The time is now. You’ve got this!!
