the past few days, my attention has been pulled towards and literally
“sucked into” the current health concerns in the world. To
the point where it has been hard NOT to think about it constantly or to
stop checking articles about it, and focus my attention elsewhere.
I’m giving myself lots of grace around it. (and I invite you to do the same) The atmosphere around it is quite intense.
I don’t regret it as I’m learning what I need to learn so that I can act from LOVE to be of support to family, friends, and our big Human family.
However, this week is a BIG week for me in terms of sharing my message out and stepping into BIGGER visibility. I’ll be Interviewed on Facebook Live and on a TV show; I just launched my new website.
So, I realized I needed to find a way to FOCUS back on what I’m up to in the world and pull my attention away from the trance we are getting lost into.
This afternoon, I made the decision to take a break from checking or discussing the virus, to focus on the preparation of the two interviews I have this week.
hours into preparing them and connecting with the core of the message I
want to share and why the world needs to hear it, and I felt my JUICE and EXCITEMENT back again!!
I was connected back to my PURPOSE on this planet and why I’m so PSYCHED about it.
My inspiration was flowing and several times, I got myself saying out loud: “There is a BOOK here that needs to written!” “I’ve a BOOK that wants to come out of me.”
My message needs to be shared more broadly in the world to help more people.
So, what can you do today to move your attention away from the current situation, take a break from it, and connect with JOY and INSPIRATION again?
It starts with making a conscious decision to do it and to focus on something else that brings you joy, and let yourself dive into it.
…and to STOP checking news, articles, and such for a little while, even if it is just for an afternoon or a day.
Try it even just for a little while and let me know how that goes.
With love, Isabelle
P.S. I’m excited to announce I’ll be interviewed this Wednesday at 10 am PT on this awesome Facebook Live show. Watch the interview live at facebook.com/the3burns
