Nowadays all we hear is to let go, to get rid of the old structures and patterns in order to receive what the universe has to offer. In my opinion all this has to be done at the same time that you raise your vibration, and work on your consciousness.
The big question here is: How do I elevate to a better me?
I might not have the right answer to this, but I can share some ideas that I've been using and that have worked for me.
1. Be thankful.
You might say: Yes Clara I appreciate what I have and I say thank you all the time. But let me tell you something I did during the summer, that really helped me, I started making lists of things I'm thankful for and why (I did a 28 day thank you challenge and it really helped me realize of the things I have, and that most of the time I take them for granted, if you wanna know more leave a comment and I can make another post about it)
2. Spend quality time with yourself.
When was the last time that you went on a date with yourself? If you feel scared or embarrassed of sitting alone at a restaurant, try it at home. Cook or order your favorite meal, have a glass of wine, choose a playlist and dance! Spoil yourself without distractions, treat yourself as you would like someone to treat you on your dream date. Put aside your phone, no one likes to be on a date with a person that can't keep their hands off their phones.
3. Try an activity that you have never done before.
Do something completely new, this will allow your mind to be fully present, since it is something that is not registered in your brain. It can be learning pottery, trying a yoga class or as simple as dancing/walking under the rain.
4. Make a short (or long) list of positive adjectives about yourself
Write 10 nice things about yourself and read them to you every morning, and before going to bed. If you are brave enough, you can try reading them out loud and in front of the mirror, the idea is to always start with I, for example: I am intelligent, I am beautiful, I am lovable, I am one with the universe, I am attractive, I respect myself...
5. Do something nice for someone
You don't have to join the permanent volunteering club in your city, though you could. Anyway, what I mean is to do a good action for other person, it's as simple as opening the door for them, sharing a snack with someone on the street, getting a coffee to your coworker or classmate. Another thing that can be very rewarding is to volunteer for some hours with a non profit organization. These kind of actions make you feel good and for sure you will connect with your higher self.
My conclusion is that when you do stuff like this you keep yourself in the present moment, you stop worrying about the past or what will be like tomorrow, and focus on enjoying your now. And as you are enjoying your time, you vibrate as a whole with the universe!
