“What are YOU Holding in Your Belly?”
I had the pleasure to hear Lisa Nichols the other day when she presented to a group in San Diego.
Was she talking to ME?
Practically the first words out of her mouth were that we’re now birthing a new energy. The time is now to hold your dream in your belly. Let it grow inside in you, like mine is doing for me.
What do you need to do to hold onto your dream, your new idea that’s growing?
Here are 7 steps to hold and birth your dream.
- Write down what you want your dream to be, even if it’s not yet clear. It’s definitely not clear. That’s the process. Start writing. Look at it a few days later. Does it feel like you? Does it really move you? Watch out for flipping and flopping on your dreams. See step 7.
- Next, claim that you DESERVE your dream. If you don’t claim that first, no one else will. You have to believe with all your body and soul that you deserve it. I’ll remind you: You do DESERVE it. Maybe it’s writing a book, maybe it’s taking a retreat in an exotic place, maybe it’s creating a relationship with someone really big in your industry, maybe is finding the love of your life, maybe it’s starting a whole new business, maybe it’s ____________________.
- You need to protect and nurture your dream. You’ll soon discover those dream “trashers”—ignore them and find others who will believe in you (like me!). This is your baby-to-be. Have you noticed that some people just don’t get it—even those, or maybe especially those close to you? Don’t worry. YOU keep nurturing your dream. They’ll come along in due time. Who are THEY to say you don’t deserve it? (I believe in you—tell me what’s on your mind.)
- Taken a stand for your dream. That means you need to hold true what fulfilling your dream will mean to you, and to others, because it’s only when you attach your dream to others’ needs will it give your dream greater meaning. And those people can hop along on your dream.
- Let your dream pull you up, like mine is. It may not yet be clear yet, after all you haven’t yet given birth to your dream. So let it be. You be. Your dream is guiding you. Now listen. I know waiting is hard to do, and you feel like you’re never going to give birth, but it will come. Patience, open eyes and ears, my dear.
- Stop the resistance. Do you feel this push and pull within you? Part of you wants this dream so badly and part of you is going, “Whoa, what happens if this dream really comes true? So much is going to change? Can I handle it?” I get ya. I’m so confused right now. Lots of voices going on in my head about what direction should or shouldn’t I take. It’s my way of creating resistance. Not a good thing. Not for you either. Recognize the resistance you are creating. Stop and reflect: Focus on what is the bigger mission of your dream. That’ll melt the resistance fast.
- Take an inch, a foot, a step, take some movement toward the actualization of your dream. Write. Daydream. Write. Connect. Ask questions of yourself and to others. Your dream will remain this fluffy thing in your head unless you do something about it. What’s one step you can take this week?
Share with me what changes you’re going through. It can be scary and frustrating, but it doesn’t have to be as long as you’re not alone in the process.
We’re in this together.
To an extraordinary YOU!
