You may have heard friends talk about creating vision boards or attending manifestation workshops, both which aim to help people achieve their goals or life dreams.
But what do you do when you aren’t even sure what it is that you want out of life?
Read on to discover some simple but powerful exercises to fire your imagination and engage your heart and soul as co-creators in your future.
Although these exercises can be broken apart and done in individual sessions, if you do break it up, be sure to begin each session with a 20-minute meditation.
If you are unaccustomed to meditation, you don’t have to make this too difficult. Simply sit on the floor in a basic cross-legged position with your hips raised by sitting on a blanket or cushion.
If that posture is too intense for your knees, then you can relocate to a straight-back chair, grounding your feet solidly on the floor. In either case, place your hands on your knees, lengthen your spine, roll your shoulders down your back, and close your eyes.
After this, simply observe your breath for the duration of the 20-minute period. When you notice your mind has wandered off, as it will, simply return your attention to your breath. This simple but effective practice will help prepare your mind and open your heart for the exercises ahead.
After your meditation, open a spiral bound notebook or word processing program on your computer. If you have an active journal, you can also place your writing in your existing journal.
