I'm sitting in my apartment this afternoon, thinking about my partner and I's trip to India next year.
We went in 2014 and it changed our lives.
And after we get married in 2019 we're off, but this time we're buying one way tickets, bringing our laptops with us, and making our dreams come true from one of the most wild places we've ever been.
Why? Well I love India.. but that's a story for another post.
Today I want to share this tool I use for manifesting my dreams, healing emotional wounds, and letting my creativity flow.
I call it The Mindset Time Machine, and it's this idea that our mind can take us to any place in time or space that it can conceive of, while our body must remain in the here and now.
How is this useful, and what does it have to do with my trip to India next year?
Well, being able to use my Mind as a time machine allows me to transport myself, though my thoughts, sensory memory, and feelings to a place that my body yearns to return to.
I can close my eyes, and in an instant, I am transported to the Beaches of Goa, in another instant, I'm eating spicy curry on a rooftop in Jodhpur.
And as I set here, allowing my mind to wander off to India, my body feels excitement and preparedness for all the divine work that will take place between now and that moment when we take our lives and businesses on the road.
And that's a good thing, because I have a lot of plans (and planning) to do between now and then, and I want my body to be as on-board as my mind.
Our Minds are one of our most magical tools, and we can use them to call in the energy that we are manifesting, but we must be certain to also ground into our physical bodies. We must remember that they are the vehicle that allows us to navigate the physical world, and too much time spent in the minds leaves the body behind.
And I didn't intend to rhythm there, but I did.
Bottom line there is, our Minds are powerful tools, but the impact is greatest when we are also grounded in our bodies.
So I invite you this weekend to play around to using your mind as a time machine to call in what you want. Maybe it's a sale on pine nuts at the grocery store, or a big check in the mail, whatever it is, allow your mind to transport you to the place and feeling of success and joy, before you allow your body to make the moves.
Then give your body permission to stay in that magical feeling in the here and now.
Let me know it this plays out, and what magic you are able to make with your creative Mindset Time Machine Powers!
