Waking Up As If
You know how after something big has happened in your life, when you wake up the next day it takes a minute to get used to the idea?
Sometimes it even takes longer than that to get used to the change?
Like after you quit your job, when you wake up on Monday, it’s sort of a surprise to remember you don’t have to go to work.
Or when you get married, it takes a minute for it to sink in that you are a wife now. Your name is Mrs. somebody!
Or after you move, when you first wake up in the new place you’re like, “wait, where am I?” Oh yeah, that’s right, I live here now.
Even after the calendar turned, it took a couple days to remember it’s 2015, didn’t it?
Okay, so I’ve been using those early morning moments to remind myself something that instantly changes the tone of the day.
I remember that all my dreams have already come true.
There’s nothing I have to work on today.
There’s nothing I’m waiting on to happen.
There’s nothing to reach for.
It’s all already happened.
All my dreams have come true.
I have every reason to feel satisfied and fulfilled.
Because it already happened. (Even when I’m not exactly sure what happened, just knowing that it already has shifts my vibration.)
Can you feel how an identity shift like this creates vibrational alignment to whatever we want to manifest?
I’m finding it a powerful ticket to “wake up as if.”
When my gremlin mind pops in with any negative input, I just conjure evidence to support the thought.
After all, lots of dreams have come true in my life – I don’t wake up to an alarm, I get to stay at home with the dogs all day, the money situation is well in hand, there is no man I have to answer to, I’ve got a gorgeous view of this beautiful world and I have an amazing life. So shush it, gremlin.
Which means when I get out of bed in the morning, I’m starting the day as the girl who got what she wanted.
When I do this I notice there’s less striving, less urgency to my morning. Less “should dos” and more “what would be funs.”
I feel like the cheshire cat, wearing a delighted smile and not wanting for a single thing.
All there is left to do is live happily ever after.
Which doesn’t mean I don’t do anything that day.
It just means everything I engage is with a higher vibration – the energy of satisfaction and fulfillment.
Kind of a cool thing to remember. 🙂
