Before diving into inspiration and manifesting magic in your life, it's important to start by looking closely at the word, "inspiration" and its definition by breaking it down. Inspiration: latin "in" (into) "Spirare" (breathe), meaning to breathe into. Originally the word, "inspired" was meant and used to describe Divine Being or Divine Guidance that has imparted truth into you. In essence, breathed into you.
When you're inspired you feel a deep message that resonates in your soul. It's a surge of energy that moves you and speaks to you. Inspiration is energetically a high vibrating frequency and feels AMAZING! It's this high vibrating energy we seek to welcome the Law of Attraction in all its glory"”manifesting magic in your life.
When you're inspired you know you're in alignment with with the Universe and in your truth. Indeed, the Universe has imparted truth into you"”breathed it into you.
But feeling inspired isn't enough"¦
For inspiration (the truth and Divine Guidance that has been breathed into you), you must then keep it alive and breath life back into it"”through your your work, your talent, your gift, your everything. You are a spiritual expression of the inspiration that's been breathed into you from the Universe. Spirituality has a place in every aspect of your life (personal to professional).
Inspiration requires follow-up…
Inspiration only works and is magnified and multiplied when you actively do the things that first WELCOME inspiration continuously and then second you ACT on the inspiration. Otherwise, inspiration looses it's breath and slips away.
When you're living an inspired life, then you're also a full spiritual expression of the Universe. This expression isn't reserved for Sunday, or for mornings, or for afternoon tea"¦NO! You are a spiritual expression of the Universe always and in all ways.
Does this speak to you?
If it does, keep reading because when you really get this, it will make a world of true and positive difference for you.
When Divine Guidance (the Universe) has imparted or breathed truth into you (inspired you), then for the guidance and truth to thrive, you must then breathe life back into it. You must ACT ON IT"¦because doing so also means living life meaningful and fulfilled.
When you're not breathing life back into what inspired you"¦it begs the question, what then, are you breathing life into? For me, the answer is clear. Every move away from inspiration is a move away from living life fulfilled and joyous and magical.
For the sake of contrast and learning, it's my personal experience that when I'm not actively welcoming inspiration nor acting on inspiration, I feel utterly lost and out of sync. For me, this is when sadness and confusion set in.
WELCOMING AND EXPERIENCING MORE INSPIRATION
You can welcome inspiration with ease and now that you understand why it's important to do so, then you'll be moved to do the things that will keep you and/or move you there as often as possible.
Doing so welcomes more of the things you've been wanting to see and experience (Law of Attraction).
Doing so helps with your retention rate"”meaning inspiration and life fulfilled doesn't slip away so easily (causing you to start from scratch). Instead, from each new level of good; the next new level of good comes"¦and so on, and so on"¦
RACK UP YOUR ENERGETIC MOMENTUM
How you do anything is how you do everything." T. Harv Eker.
One of my favorite quotes and a needle mover. When you do the small things well (go above an beyond where you can), or follow through and finish what you start with excellence in mind, you will welcome inspiration.
Execute all things in as many ways as you can with excellence and accomplishment in mind, and you'll not only feel good, it will raise your vibration and energy and you'll be prepared for the moment MORE excellence in greater ways comes your way. Remember this, if you can't handle what's happening in our life now with excellence, love and appreciation"¦you won't be ready for greater things later. Rack up your energetic momentum now and get primed and ready for the future you're creating.
RESPECT YOUR OWN GROWTH AND REMOVE OVERWHELM
Dive into the things supporting your personal development and growth. This is a must. Commit right now to stop the excuses, respect its value, schedule time for it, and then follow through. Through books, programs, or attending events and workshops, I guarantee you'll come away with value and inspiration. However, beware of overwhelm. There is A LOT of information out there. Do what you know you can complete with excellence in mind (see point #1). Start small if you must, but start. Commit to taking at least ONE thing you've learned to supplement your life. Stick with that one thing"”at a pace you know you can handle"”pushing your comfort zones safely.
We have a normal. As you move outside of your comfort zone, what was once the unknown and frightening becomes your new normal." ~Robin S. Sharma
REVISIT AND RE-DO
Revisit and re-do books, programs, or events you've enjoyed. Go back because if they worked the first time, they'll likely work again. You'll hear new things in new ways with new perspectives because you have grown and you're coming back each time as a fuller spiritual expression of the Universe.
REPLACE TIRED AND USED UP VOCABULARY
How you speak reflects your energy. YES"¦it reflects where you are energetically and what you're attracting! Mediocre words will never support high vibrating energy nor breath life into the experiences you want to attract. Be intentional in your communication. How does it feel when you replace words like, "fine" or "nice" or "good" with higher vibrating words like, "wonderful" or "lovely" or "excellent." Pay attention to how you show up, including how you express yourself. Change the dialogue with others, including the dialogue with yourself to include higher vibrating vocabulary.
I would define, in brief, the poetry of words as the rhythmical creation of beauty." ~Edgar Allan Poe
REJECT WITH LOVE WHAT DOESN'T SERVE YOU
Always keep the greater good in mind and you'll be able to reject that which doesn't line up with it, with ease. So, REJECT the need to always be RIGHT. REJECT the need to people please. REJECT the notion that to be kind is equal to allowing yourself to be bulldozed, it doesn't. You can be both KIND and STRONG. REJECT boredom and dare to do something NEW and DIFFERENT that supports the greater good. Rejection of the things not in alignment with the greatest good is easier when your energy is wrapped up doing the things you love"¦the things that started with inspiration.
You are a spiritual expression of the Universe always and in all ways.
