How to Reach a Deep State of Inspiration
How often do you feel inspired and how do you stay inspired? I work with many people that do not have this quality as a regular part of their week. Yet it is important to let ourselves linger in inspiring environments and seek out inspiring moments during our work week. Having a positive outlook on life is much easier when we are inspired.
Webster’s Dictionary defines inspiration as, “a divine influence or action on a person believed to qualify him or her to receive and communicate sacred revelation.” Wow – why not have more of that in your week?
We all love being inspired. Inspiration opens our hearts. It creates good ‘juju,’ moves us into a place of presence, and gives us the feeling that we are part of something much bigger. It is a motivating feeling to know we have an impact and can contribute in a real way. When we are inspired, we inspire others, and this creates a wave of good feelings, opening the door to opportunities, abundance and connection at a very real level.
So what will inspire you this year? Will it be reading a daily quote, watching a favorite video on a regular basis, allowing yourself to seek out inspirational speakers once a month, or maybe getting a daily dose of one of your favorite people? Whatever it is – be it daily, weekly or monthly – I encourage you to make it part of your routine, just like brushing your teeth, attending your weekly business meeting or going to your monthly book club. Start with schedules that will be easy for you to incorporate. Integrating inspiration into your life is meant to be easy, not a struggle, so set yourself up for success by starting with a time frame that works for you. There is no wrong or right way to embrace inspiration – it is about what works for each of us individually. Just allow yourself to be open in the presence of what inspires you, so you can inspire yourself and others.
