Know Core Values for Manifesting SuccessHow can knowing your values help you manifest what you want?
Well, just knowing them can’t.
But knowing and honoring your core values will definitely help you get what you want.
Because when you live your values, you live in vibrational alignment.
And we know that’s the sweet spot – alignment is what allows our best manifestations to unfold.
A core value is simply what matters most to you in life; it’s what makes you who you are. As in, without it, you just wouldn’t be you.
For some that might be humor or generosity. Learning or spirituality. Creativity or connection. The list goes on.
So how does one live their values?
It starts with identifying them.
There are a couple ways to do that:
One is to narrow them down from a list. You can do that here.
(Some coaches don’t like that approach because sometimes we choose values we think we should have, rather than what is really true for us. For example, parents feel guilty if they don’t pick “Family” and lots of folks choose “Honesty” even though that isn’t really a core value for most.)
The other method to identify your core values is to recall a recent time when you were at your best, having the time of your life. On Cloud 9 and loving it!
As you revisit that experience, ask yourself what elements were present that made that so enjoyable for you. Those key elements are clues to your values.
For example, I recently had the time of my life at the sheepdog trials in Heber. Why was that so fun for me? Dogs!! Hello, dogs, dogs and more dogs! Plus, they were so well trained – they were the best in the business and so impressive to watch! It was delightful! And then there were the Splash Dogs, which was so much fun it was off the scale! I loved talking with other dog lovers! The whole day was really really fun!
What were the elements that made that so enjoyable for me? Animals & Nature, for starters. Mastery, for another. Connection (with others who were passionate about this stuff, too.) And it was Fun!
No surprise that my core values list includes Nature, Connection, Mastery, and Fun. 🙂
Next recall a recent time when you were having an awful experience. Where nothing went your way and you were just miserable. Identify what was MISSING that made that experience so unpleasant. Those elements are also clues to your values.
I personally like to combine both of those approaches to help a client identify their core values.
Once you know your values ( it can be a process, so be patient with yourself while they reveal themselves to you), write them down where you’ll see them daily. Now it’s just a matter of choosing in favor of your values as often as possible.
Like when you’re choosing between going to a movie with a friend or staying home to read a new book – which one better helps you honor your values?
When you’re choosing jobs, lovers, even what to wear today – pick the option that best allows you to experience a core value (or two) and you’re guaranteed to have a better time with it than if you hadn’t.
And a good time equals alignment!
That’s how knowing – and living – your core values can make you a better manifestor.
My promise to you: when you live your values, you will feel better than ever. You’ll feel more yourself, more alive, more fulfilled, more satisfied, more in JOY.
And in that sweet spot of alignment, Universe will yield the good stuff you’ve been wanting.
