FOL­LOW YOUR SOUL, EVEN AT WORK (ES­PE­CIALLY AT WORK)

Red - - SELF - JODY SHIELD, MED­I­TA­TION TEACHER, SPEAKER AND IN­TU­ITIVE COACH

“There are so many in­spir­ing women start­ing busi­nesses and fol­low­ing their dreams. This is truly the age of the en­tre­pre­neur. Cou­pled with that, there’s a new way of work­ing that I call soul­ful or in line with your val­ues that re­ally helps bring ideas to re­al­ity.”

1) TUNE IN. Take time to re­ally ‘tune’ into your new ideas, cre­ative projects or de­ci­sions. Take a notebook and pen and put the ti­tle of what­ever it is at the top of the page. Close your eyes, take some deep breaths and imag­ine bring­ing the idea (or project) into your heart. Imag­ine your­self tun­ing into it, like a ra­dio sta­tion. No­tice how it feels to you. What colours come to you, or tex­tures? Now al­low your­self to free write (don’t think!). See what in­sight comes about the idea and how to move it for­ward.

2) FUEL UP. Keep your soul stim­u­lated and en­er­gised through reg­u­lar in­spi­ra­tion. What lights you up?

What ex­cites you? What turns you on in life? Do it once a week. The time you in­vest in this will ul­ti­mately dou­ble your pro­duc­tiv­ity. Your cre­ativ­ity and in­sight will flow much eas­ier. 3) SLOW DOWN TO SPEED UP. It’s easy to speed up when we act from a place of fear of miss­ing some­thing, or fear of run­ning out of time or fear of losing money. But when we slow down, the ideas have space to form in the best way, and there is breath­ing space to see things clearly and un­der­stand the en­ergy of the idea more.
