Today we are going to dig deep and see what our core values are. Core values help us determine what is most important to us and can act as a guide to see if we are on the right path and fulfilling our goals.
This exercise is going to help you figure out what is most important to you at this moment.
For me, my core values include:
Yet, on the conscious level, we may believe that these are where we are operating, but if we take a deep dive, we may be operating from lack or scarcity instead of freedom. Taking on too many tasks or to-dos, instead of living from a place of simplicity.
THESE HIDDEN SUBCONSCIOUS BELIEFS CAN BE HINDERING YOU FROM STEPPING UP INTO THE PERSON YOU WANT TO BE AND THE LIFE YOU WANT TO LIVE.
So, how do you figure out what your values are?
I want you to imagine that you were stripped of everything in your life. You are nothing, no one, you just exist. Feel the energy flowing up and down your spine. Imagine you are where you are 5 years from now, what does it look like? Feel like?
After the mediation, journal your experience.
What did you see? Who was there? Where were you?
To gain further clarity, answer the following honestly:
What is it that you crave from life? Relationships, Money, Career, Home, etc.?
What do you prefer to talk about or wish you could only talk about?
What do you buy most often?
In your free time, what are you most likely doing?
It would be cool if,.... (fill in your dream life go crazy in your journal on this one)
What is most important to you?
Who do you want to become?
Taking these answers along with the answers from the mediation, I want you to observe any themes that are popping up. Is there an innate desire for luxury? Travel? Define whatever those mean to you.
These are the core elements that you can use as a guide for how to live your life. When you are being presented with an opportunity or a test, you can refer back to these elements, by asking does this fit in with my top values? Am I wanting or needing this from a place of lack?
To get to a place of living through this authenticity you will have to sift through the discomfort the shadowy elements to really stand in your worth as we will begin to do in the next module.
