The other day a cool chick I was chatting with said: “I love the idea of ruling my world, but what exactly does it mean?”
I figured that you might be thinking the same thing, so I’m going to break it down for you.
Ruling your World is a mindset, which leads to specific kinds of actions that result in you feeling good and having what you want.
It’s your birthright to feel good and be fully self expressed. It’s what we are here for. It’s how we can best share our awesomeness with the world and contribute the particular piece of the cosmic puzzle that you alone hold.
Four aspects of Ruling your World are….
1. Knowing how freaking amazing and powerful you are and happily taking full responsibility for how you feel and for creating the outcomes that you desire.
(Meaning: you’re responsible for the energy that you bring and control how you feel about what is happening in your life.)
2. Trusting yourself, your desire, and knowing you can have what you want, even when you have no idea how its going to get there.
Trusting yourself….that’s a big one! The majority of the people I talk with have a hard time believing that they can have what they want. They don’t trust their desire….matter of fact, they make themselves wrong for wanting what they want.
Hear this- If you have a strong desire for something, especially if it keeps coming back, it’s meant for you. Trust it. Follow it and see where it leads you.
3.Deciding what you want and commanding it to be. It’s your life, you are the ultimate authority and ruler. You make the rules! Set your life up to fit you perfectly and choose what you will have in it.
Just to be clear here…..Ruling your world is NOT about expecting and demanding that the world, and everyone in it, is going to bend to your will and act how you want them to act and make you feel how you want to feel. You’re not sitting on your thrown shrieking at everyone around you like the Red Queen in Alice in Wonderland. It doesn’t work that way. The only person responsible for how you feel is you.
As ruler, you are deciding how you want to feel and making choices that allow you to feel that way regardless of what is going on around you.
As Danielle Laporte says- “You are dancing with the cosmos instead of dictating to the world.”
4. As Ruler of your world you know that what you want is on it’s way, so you look for evidence of it’s arrival. You act as if it’s already here and excitedly create that space for it to appear in.
You frequently can be found daydreaming about all the ways you’re going to use and enjoy having your stuff. Like…. how it will feel to have the money and to spend it; picturing long afternoons spent with your lover and how it feels to gaze into their eyes; imagining what your day to day flow will be like with all those new clients.
AND you constantly raise your glass and eat celebratory cupcakes to honor all the progress that you’re making.
It’s good to be the Ruler!
