Emotional Exercise 5

Exhale, you have been through four rigorous exercises. Job well done; finish line ahead.

  1. How do you feel?
  2. What has changed?
  3. Who are you?

Don’t skip over these three questions – answer them out loud with your hand over your heart. Feel the vibration as you orally recognize that you feel different, are different and are fully aware of your mental and physical being.

In fact, send me your answers so that you too have a written record for posterity. When you write your feelings and your expectations along with vocalizing them, according to Jack Canfield in The Power of Focus, you are imprinting inviolable strength and tapping  your inner support for powerful change.

What really makes me happy is knowing I can tap into the well of strength that rests within me…

No one can ever take from you … the assurance that you are enough, that you are the joy the world needs.”—  Samantha Page

Now that you have done this, you are ready for the final Emotional Exercise Five. Congratulations.

Emotional Exercise 5:

     Draw a mandala and place your goal (the WHY and VALUE statements with an end point) from Emotional Exercise Four at the bottom of your mandala.

A mandala in simple terms means “circle” or “center.” Shapes and patterns are added to a clearly identified calming central point.

  • Mandalas are the merging for healing of body, spirit and soul
  • Mandalas uncover your own creativity
  • Mandalas help you discover what is real for you
  • Mandalas allow you to master your inner and outer being
  • Mandalas aide calm and assist you to gain trust and composure

Do an internet search on mandalas and you will find origin information, free mandala drawing pages, and all sorts of interesting information about creating your own unique artistic representation of yourself and your goal.  It does not matter if your mandala is crude or intricate, the main point here is to use your creative, fun, and free-spirit side of your brain and your life.

You have become a master creator.  Post your mandala with your goal written at the bottom, the one you created, in a prominent place that you will see daily and often.  Free your mind, the outcome will follow.

Life is the performance of function; and the individual really lives only when he performs every function – physical, mental, and spiritual – of which he is capable.”       ~Dennis Wattles

You have a right to what you desire, so pursue your intentional goal(s) with unbiased fervor. Want completely.  Love intensely.  Live with passion that is with full faith and function.

Emotions are indicators of inner feelings that should be exercised or exorcised, depending on where they come from.  The emotions that we have exercised, I along with you, has oxygenated a new you, defined a passion, and inculcated an imprint of exciting rich, colorful change.   There is no more to be done.  Remain active, exercise your emotions often – pause and take the time for more inner discovery.

Don’t stop at one mandala, unless you want to. You can do this for each goal, outcome that you have. Create a symbolic picture of your core value and goal.

Emotional Exercise Five is complete – when your mandala masterpiece with the goal written at the bottom is done.

Feel free, I absolutely invite you to do this, to upload your creative images to this blog. This would be wonderful!

Give thanks.

Be, just be.

What Do You Want?

I don’t mean to be rude as is customarily the case when someone sounds irritated in a response to you. No, not at all. My intention by asking this question, what do you want is to probe you to think about the life question – What do YOU Want?

Really, ask yourself this question right now. Say, self (insert your name here) what do you want?

Next, take deliberate steps to answer the question. Let me real clear here – until you answer the question and seer the answer into your soul, you will be a flounder fish out of the water of life.

Don’t despair; I have Answers, thus the name Anita Answers – smile. Act on these five points to define exactly what you want.

Answer One
: Make a dream board, vision board, mastermind chart or goal message that contains images and wordings of exactly what you want. Be bodacious. Dream BIG! Fantasize. The main point in designing this visual of what you want is to allow no limitations at this point. Regardless of whether you can imagine or even expect most of what you really want to happen, do it anyway. Dream in colorful, broad dimension. That’s your only task.

To confirm my point, read The Eleventh Element by Robert Scheinfeld.

Answer Two
: Allow your 11th Element to work – this means that you must believe everything you want as visualized and set in visual form in Answer One. Belief becomes behavior.

Answer Three
: Act as if it has already been done. Behave in conformity with your beliefs. See the end now and act like you see every reality of your vision. Act like success and ecstatically enjoy who you have become.

Answer Four
: Write down the goals and objectives for each segment of your vision. For example: if you envision losing 30 pounds, then your goal should specifically state: I will lose 30 pounds. The objectives for that goal may be to feel better, to enjoy better health, to look sexy, to become more active, etc. These are specific reasons that support the goal.

Also, keep in mind that a goal must be specific! Otherwise, you only have a vague longing which will grant you nothing. You are capable of being definite here, so state in specific detailed form exactly what you want.

This is critical here because when you know why you want to do something, the how becomes easy. So, write the goal and then support the goals with rational reasons that explain why.

Recommended Reading: Jack Canfield, Success Principles: How to Get From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be. Excellent road map to goal setting and answering the question why.

Answer Five
: Go beyond yourself. No woman or man is an island. Thus, when you attach your new intentional goals to an altruistic cause that allows you to extend service to others, the reality of the goal is even more entrenched. Align at least one of your goals to service; there is plenty service work to do.

Answer Six
: Finally, become a repetitive ant. Get busy building your success ant mound. Do the same things, repeat the same mantra, look at your vision board and goals and objectives a hundred times a day or more if you need to. Make your own rhythm, but get busy making a repetitive rhythm. Repeat your goals out loud, write then down again and again, and look at your vision board to see the outcome you are working toward. Repeat, repeat, repeat until you have inculcated a new you and can instantly act accordingly. Act, act now, and continue to act!

Make success – whatever that dream is – your new habit.
The year 2010 will be different, when you are ready to be different!

Now, answer me. What do YOU Want?
