7 Ways to Stay Motivated

It feels so good when someone you admire asks you, “how did you do it?” After all the trials and tribulations, you came out with a product, service, installment or something that made your heart sing and people recognized it. I love it when that happens! However, there are days when I slump around on the couch and get stuck. This is why I made you this little post to take the gum off the shoe sole and keep moving!

 

  1. Forget the have-to’s: All the excuses, like, “I have to clean first, I have to buy something, have to have to…” need to go out the window. There is nothing else you have to do if you are doing something to survive. Everyone understands, “I have to work”, but if it’s a creative project that is fulfilling who you are as a spiritual being having a human experience, then it’s easy to get distracted. I’d like to think that both go hand-in-hand, but people on this planet do practice separation between what’s needed and what’s leisure. In any case, as mentioned in my Living Your Life Purpose e-book, doing what you came here to do will always give you energy! I was told by several spiritual beings such as faeries and E.T.s, that they promise to help us out when we stick to our commitment, a.k.a. priorities to planet Earth.

  2. Just lean into it:  It’s really true that motivation comes from doing. I say, once you’re in the pool, you get used to the temperature. This is often the case with creative minds- all they have to do is take the first step and begin the actual process. All it takes is putting the paintbrush in your hand, dipping it into the pain or err, paint, and moving it along the canvas.
  3. Do a little at a time:  Think, “just 10 minutes!” and schedule yourself for the next work week. Get a calendar even! Keep it simple like a minimalist. As highly sensitive perfectionists, we tend to over-do. People are busy these days anyway and unless you are a writer, you may want to just stick to basics. Your knowledge is still appreciated! Plus, you can’t do everything. Some people will actually enjoy this new style.
  4. Visualize: See yourself in your third eye completing the task. This is a very simple practice, but when you have a concept and “see it” over your forehead/psychic movie screen, you are making energy pathway connections to your sixth sense. The reward? Materializing on the physical plane, which is one of the greatest gifts you could do for us all!
  5. Talk with someone who inspires you: Consider someone who is a “together” person, what would they do? Thinking of unsuccessful people is okay, but after the brooding period you get good at this self-motivation thing. Remember Abraham’s channeled message through Esther Hicks or the “rocket of desire” teaching: when you are in a situation you dislike, you are shooting up rockets of desire for what you WOULD really like! It’s only when we are in bad company that we begin a downwards spiral out of 5D. I like to think of this as being a doctor in a hospital. You HAVE to have some kind of support system after dealing with illness everywhere. My friend’s parents are both doctors and they always have a beautiful family dinner when they get home. Another doctor friend of my dad’s built a pool inside his house to decompress after checking up on an entire basketball team during tournament season!
  6. Document your progress: Share on social media your creative process to inspire others! I love the timeline/story feature! Seeing other productive people (like your favorite do-ers on instagram) is much more motivating than looking at people who feel like they had life handed to them, or make exaggerated anger posts with zero solutions or requests for help. Also, put awards and achievements on the wall! For instance, I put on my favorite jumper and took a picture of myself doing my work for this blog post! One of my achievements for today is getting this blogpost done and editing the wazoo out of this pic! Doing this writing also got me so hyped that I’m ready to finesse it with my audio project. Yes, there are certain astrological days when it won’t be good to make certain decisions, so having multiple tasks organized (e.g. neon post-its that you put on your office door or erasable marker on a whiteboard) in visual form can help.
  7. Remember the last time you were awesome: Maybe you felt really good wearing some crystals. Perhaps you were on stage and rocked the mic right in middle school. When was the last time you really “nailed it”? As someone who is constantly learning new computer systems and artistic ways to express my message, I tend to forget all the good that’s been done. Thinking in numbers helps me to make mental lists of progress. In my video, 7 Tips for Doing Readings, I talk about my last nine years working as a psychic and all I’ve gleaned, like pattern-recognition and understanding human-starseeded behavior! Another example: a good friend of mine made lists of all the movies he’s watched and everyone he’s subscribed to (reasons unknown, but definitely helped me with my lunchtime anxiety). My roommate from college sat on the floor once, surrounded by all her journals and stationary, revisiting  old timelines, telling us funny dating stories and throwing out those of zero emotional significance. (I believe Taisha Abelar called this “recapitulation.”)

It’s up to you if you want to go somewhere and that is the coolest feeling because you’ll now be taking charge of your life, rather than being caught up in the astral current. I’m happy you now want to uplift your vibe and remain grateful, to do even greater things!
