People always ask me what they can do in their life to have the most impact. But what if your greatest impact is in the way you live your daily life?
I know, that seems so simple and even potentially boring, but when you think about it, is it? You actually impact the world every day. Every day you choose whether to treat people with kindness and courtesy, or with dismissive anger and righteousness. Every day you choose whether to take the highroad, or to sink into the lowest version of yourself. By each choice that you make on a daily basis, you’re impacting the world.
And the examples above are regarding the people you actually talk to and are in the vicinity of. What if you will also have profound impact on people you’ve never met, nor ever will meet?
The premise that someone who will never know your name yet can be impacted by you; that’s a big responsibility. It shows you that what you put out in your personal world shifts the overall vibration of the world at large for good, or for bad, and has repercussions.
Of course many of you want to make significant positive impact where people know you and learn from you; that’s a beautiful goal and never underestimate the little things.
If you’re always waiting to do something “big,” you’re negating the impact you have every single day.
Plus, how you operate on a daily basis is indicative of how you would operate on a larger scale. Be responsible for your thoughts, words, emotions, and actions in your own reality and live by example.
When you can be responsible for that impact and show up as the highest version of you, you change and the world changes. Simply by your presence you have phenomenal impact. This is how you “be the change.” Start today.
I’m a rule follower; I like to follow the rules… except when I don’t. I have this dichotomy of being an extreme rule follower, and then rebelling against rules; especially rules that make no sense.
Yet sometimes, I can get so caught up in doing things “perfectly” that I don’t think to question the rules I’m following.
This happened recently in my Master’s class. The instructor was talking about finding out what color each chakra wants to be each day. At first, I rejected that idea, as all the chakras have their colors, right? But then the more I listened to her, the more it made sense that maybe for the most part chakras are a specific color, but what if sometimes they’re not?
What if your body is trying to tell you that for you, the color green is the most representative of safety and security and so that’s what color you prefer in your first chakra? Maybe that color helps you to heal versus the traditional red. Who says you have to have red if you need green?
When you think about it, we’re all individual, who says our chakras all match?
Maybe, you’re an outlier in the colors that work best for you.
I worked on a client recently and we were doing intensive chakra healing and I told her that each of her chakras wanted to be in the red/pink/orange color scheme. That made perfect sense to her as those colors represented the vitality she was looking to create in her physical body. When she filled those colors into her chakras, she felt more vibrant than she had in a long time.
Trust yourself versus what you’ve always been told. I don’t know about you, but this idea is phenomenally freeing to me. Yes on a typical day I go with the usual colors, but every so often I’ll get a message that a different color is much better that day in a specific chakra and when I listen and I allow it, it feels so good in my body.
I encourage you this week to see what actually works for you versus what you’ve always been taught is correct. See if there are colors you need in certain areas of your body to bring healing. Bypass the “rules” that you’ve been taught. Connect with yourself and your needs and let that override anything else.
What better way to create self-trust and self-love, than to listen to your needs above all else. Break the rules and set yourself free.
Me, Tina Germain, just sharing ways to make you the best you can be!
