We are about to begin a beautiful brand spankin’ new year and there is no better time to review and examine the limiting beliefs that prevent us from living life to the fullest. By letting go of energetic patterns that no longer serve our lives we naturally allow for happiness to make a much needed appearance in our day to day lives. By trying to “give up” the following 15 things, you open your heart to a profound shift in your consciousness and help you to manifest your desires.
1. GIVE UP MAKING RESOLUTIONS
Why? Because they simply don’t work. There have even been countless studies that show that people can’t seem to stick to new diets and saving money because they don’t create powerful enough habits that will withstand the resistance they encounter. The alternative? Set powerful intentions instead and create a grand vision for your life and an actionable plan rather than a vague one.
2. GIVE UP CERTAIN LANGUAGE PATTERNS
Get rid of the following words and phrases from your vocabulary…
Hate // I can’t // I won’t // You’re wrong // I’m right // It’s always // Everything always // It’s impossible // It won’t happen
Pretty much anything that makes massive sweeping and limiting statements which prevent you from being open to all possibilities and ways that things can manifest into your life.
3. GIVE UP RESPONSIBILITY FOR HOW OTHERS FEEL
When you truly let go of this one you will notice a newfound sense of freedom. A weight is lifted and a burden is no longer on your shoulders to take responsibility for things beyond your control. Happiness is the natural byproduct of letting go of codependent behavioral patterns like this one.
4. GIVE UP DRAMA
Stop gossiping, bitching, complaining or adding fuel to the fire. By consciously choosing not to indulge in pettiness then you free your consciousness up and stop blocking the flow of all good things.
5. GIVE UP THINGS YOU KNOW DULL YOUR INTUITION
Think back to a time where your intuitive faculties were on fire….
What were you doing? Eating? Reading? Meditation practice perhaps? Do whatever you can in order to spark a deeper connection with the Universe. If this means giving up coffee or booze, then try it. If this means saying goodbye to toxic relationships or binge watching crappy TV shows…then you know what to do.
Feed your soul with things that will make your intuition flourish and be of the highest service to yourself and others.
6. GIVE UP SAYING NO
Just like in the movie ‘YES MAN’ with Jim Carrey you need to learn how to accept opportunities and put yourself out there. YES is a powerful affirmation to the Universe that you are ready for serious manifesting action. With the caveat that the invitation you are accepting is totally safe and empowering … then GO FOR IT! Yes, is freeing. It will get you out of your comfort zone and allow for new things to be drawn into your reality. Yes, yes, yes.
7. GIVE UP SAYING YES
Nope. I don’t think so. It’s not gonna happen. Sometimes the “people pleasing” person will say yes even when they don’t really want to.
Be nice about declining offers and feel perfectly worthy enough to say no to stuff you don’t want to do. NO can be really empowering to use effectively. Learning how to say no is a gift, as long as it’s done with conscious awareness. It’s actually a really important element to self-care and creating time to nurture yourself.
8. GIVE UP BEING DISCONNECTED FROM YOUR BODY
When you are disconnected from your body you can’t truly live a happy and inspired lifestyle that you deserve. One of the best ways to give your body love is to feed yourself nourishing food. Try eating vibrant and alive foods that are all colors of the rainbow. This will amplify your manifesting powers. The lighter your vibration, the more flow and happiness you will have in your life.
9. GIVE UP THE PAST
Why? Because it doesn’t exist. And if it still does have a hold on your heart then there is some healing to do.
10. GIVE UP CLUTTER + ACCUMULATING STUFF
As a society we consume way more than we actually need. Make it a new rule in the New Year to only buy things if you truly LOVE them or need them. Ask yourself before every purchase if you are acquiring a new item because it will make your life better in some way. If yes, then buy it.
11. GIVE UP SEEKING APPROVAL
The approval seeking cycle can run pretty deep in some people. Once you learn to see that what other people think of you is none of your business, then your life will begin to blossom and you can breathe a sigh of relief. Own your decisions, don’t second guess yourself and stand strong in your unique perspective on life.
12. GIVE UP PERFECTION
Nothing will ever be perfect, it will always present itself in the way it’s meant to. Learning to let go of perfection with the manifesting process and learning to be happy can be one of the most freeing and liberating experiences you will have. It also, creates space for non-judgment to reign which is a beautiful thing and frees up the energy for things to manifest in divine timing.
13. GIVE UP EXPECTATIONS OF OTHERS
You always have to lower your expectations or at lease not have any at all. This way you don’t become disappointed and you release the need to control others. Let other people live life to the beat of their own drum.
14. GIVE UP YOUR COMFORT ZONE
Feel the fear and do it anyway. Just jump. Nothing awesome never originated from a comfort zone.
15. GIVE UP “SHOULDS”
My Nana Mollie used to peel the banana from the non-stalk end – really it made no sense. When questioned she would say it’s ‘A way’ and not ‘THE way’ – meaning that there multiple ways to do things in life.
It is our own programming that makes us think we have things figured out better or more efficient than someone else. Actually, it’s pure arrogance to think we have the right to tell people how they should or shouldn’t behave.
Judgement of others is an inability to see that there are infinite perspectives and ways of doing things.
[Tweet “Affirmation: I accept others for who they are and keep my two-cents to myself.”]
