Did you know that the best guidance you can receive comes from within you?  When we have trouble trusting ourselves, we tend to seek the opinion of others out of Fear of making the wrong decision.  This practice of asking others for their thoughts becomes an unconscious habit which has us constantly doubting ourselves and adopting beliefs that misalign with our own truth.  As a result, we feel helpless, uncertain and disconnected with our authentic self.

Don't worry.  I've got your back.  My very own guidance has asked that I share transformational tool with you.

Meet your Future (aka Highest) Self.

This is the best guidance you can ever receive because hey, you know you best.

Here's what to do.  Write a letter from your Future Self (who is living the life you want and is exactly where your current self  hopes to be one day) to your current present self.

The letter would cover the following.

  • What advice would your Future Self give you about your current situation, problem or Fear?  What words of wisdom would they offer you?
  • What would your Future Self tell you to stop doing right now?
  • What would your Future Self tell you to start doing right now?

This is what my Future Self offered to me.  It's a deep read/listen but a worthwhile one because I don't think this letter was just for me.  I don't think I was alone in this.

Dear Self,

It is time.


It is time for you to remove that mask that you’ve been hiding behind for so long. 

This mask that looks happy and fine on the outside wants to break free.  It isn’t working for you any longer. Set yourself free from the heaviness that you feel inside.


It is time to get out of the trap. 

No more feeling helpless and out of control.  No more excuses, blaming and lies. No more pretty positive thoughtsJust TRUTH, LOVE and EMPOWERMENT.  


It is time to make loving yourself a priority. 

Stop procrastinating.  You are 100% worthy and priceless.  It might be hard for you to believe this truth right now.  Know this - You are powerful beyond your imagination. Deep down inside, you know this is your truth.  You are afraid to step out and express yourself, yes? I am here to tell you that it is time that FEAR stops running your life.  The FEAR that success comes with sacrifices, is a lie.  You are not a victim of your own choices.  


It is time to get focused. 

You will always have an abundance of great ideas.  They are not going anywhere. How you do one thing, is how you do everything.  Choose one idea to focus on now and no matter what, it will lead you to abundance.  Trust that everything you need is already provided.


It is time to stop using your work as a source of self-sabotage. 

No more mediocrity, only show up as your genuine and Best Self.  No more forcing and trying, just flow and surrender. Take only inspired action.  


It is time to stop spending time, money and energy without awareness.

Investing these energies in your mind, the most important asset in your life.  A strong, clear and FEARLESS MIND is the key to self-connection.  You are your life’s purpose.  Everything you strive for always leads you back to this.


It is time to choose for your highest good. 

It is ok to take care of yourself.  It is ok to say YES to what you want.  It is time to stick to what you want for good.  You are 100% capable of owning your FEAR.  It is time to channel your drive to excel into living a life of FREEDOM.


It is time for you to show yourself everything you are capable of. 

You can never do wrong.  The only mistake you can ever make is to believe that you are not enough.  You can correct this. This limiting belief is not useful to you or anyone else.  Have grace for yourself.   


It is time to be in control of yourself. 

It is time to stop spinning in defeat and rise beyond the FEAR for good.  There is nothing wrong with you.  There is nothing to fix. The feeling that you need to improve yourself and be better, is only an indication that you are misaligned with your truth.  It is an indication that you are feeling disconnected with your Best Self.


It is time for you to be the seeker of your truth. 

You are LOVE.  You emanate LOVE whether you know it or not.  FEAR’s only job is to cover up your LIGHT.  It is time to reveal your truth and break those patterns of overwhelm.  Stop doubting yourself and do the very thing you’re afraid to do. You are safe.  


It is time to take ownership of your life experiences. 

It is time to turn your focus from lack of results to belief in yourself, right now.  What you say to yourself is more important than what anyone else says to you. It is time to turn your focus from caring about what other people think, to what you think.


It is time to expand your mind exponentially. 

It is time to shift your mindset to one of self-empowerment and self-motivation.  You are reliable and trustworthy. You’re here to create a difference. Therefore, you must think differently in order to create a new reality.  When you change your mind, life changes for you. This is the beauty of the ripple effect.


It is time to surrender to guidance. 

You are not alone.  You have the best guidance right here with you always.  The only thing stopping you from connecting with your Best Self is believing in the loud demands of the FEAR.  The excuses, lies and blame are all distractions and lead you nowhere but in a circle of discomfort, being someone you are not.  The only thing you ever have to ‘DO’ is to slow down the mind so you can deliberately choose LOVE vs. FEARFEAR cannot exist in the presence of LOVE.


It is time for you to choose LOVE. 

Choose to be at peace with yourself.  Choose balance. Choose to slow down and be present with your life.  You can feel at ease and succeed all at the same time. Follow me and I will guide you every step of the way.  Don’t let FEAR stand in your way from the eternal abundance that’s right here waiting for you to open your arms and receive.


Right here.  Right now. This moment is the only moment that matters.  It is time.
