So in the last chapter we talked about being mindful and checking in with ourselves for things which dull our sparkle. Once you start doind that and gain a little clarity, lets look at whats up with your glitter.
Is it your job which is stressing you out? Are your neighbours and co- workers driving you insane? Do you feel as if you dont have any sparking hobbies? Do you dread weekends because you have nothing to do on those days? Or are you spending your weekends on stuff that drains your energy instead of replenishing it?
Love is the solution of your problems. Dont get mistaken. I am not talking about romantic love. Doing what you love is what makes your soul sparkle.
If you are having difficulty figuring out all this, I have a few simple yet effective principles to help you out.
PRINCIPLE 1- Sprinkling stardust
In this principle we are going to sprinkle stardust or love over your life so that you can clearly see what you are looking for.
What would you love to do before bedtime? Would you like to read a good book? Or would you like to put on some soothing music? Or would you like to do a prayer ritual or is it something else? Similarly, think about what would you love doing in the early morning, evening and afternoon.
PRINCIPLE 2- Keep the glitter flowing
Now once you have stated what you would love doing, in our second principle, we are going to deal with the hurdles. Maybe you get no quiet time staying with your family. Maybe you cant find a good book to read. Maybe you have no access to some resources you might need.
This principle focusses on being grateful for all that you already have and keeping the glitter flowing or continue to doing what you love. If you wish to visit a spa but have no money for it, then just put a little aroma body oils in your bathing water. Give yourself a nice head massage.
If you wish to spend some quiet time but you have your family to take care of then get up a little early to spend some time alone or choose quiet afternoons when your kids are sleeping.
If you wish to read something nice, but cant find a good book look up for some nice blogs or articles on facebook or pinterest.
PRINCIPLE 3- The magic paintbrush
Now if you have seen the older version of Disney’s animated movie “Rapunzel” you may know how she uses a magic paintbrush to create a place she wants to visit and her painting becomes a portal. Now if you do wish to go to any place you love or you want to purchase your dream home or you want to meet the love of your life, you need to create that magic portal by picking up that magic paintbrush. If you want to find love, write down some poetry which keeps up your hopes or make a soulmate board on pinterest. If you are working towards purchasing your dream home, say Thank you to the current place you are living in. And then read magazines on lavish apartments, books on making a beautiful home.
Start little by little and soon you will notice how you sparkle with delight.
I shall talk more on this in my upcoming posts.
