Did you know that you have the power within you to have the life you want?
Create the whole picture of what you want your life to be. Then break the picture down into small baskets. Name each basket. The baskets are your “Dream Catchers”. There will be many baskets. For example, if you want your life to be simpler. Think about the ways in which your life is more complicated then you would like it to be. Create baskets that represent the complications.
Here are some examples of aspects that potentially endanger you from having the life you want:
Job, Family, Friends, Money and Health
Here is an illustration of a job basket breakdown:
Is your job an emotional or time vampire? Create a basket that represents your job: in that basket write down what you know about you and the job. Time spent at the job, what you dislike about it are examples of the types of determinations that go into the basket.
Create the job transition basket and in it you are taking into account your expertise, the talents required to hold the job, the livelihood(s) you imagine transitioning into and if you liked or were fulfilled with any facet of your job.
Within each topic create a transition basket. Powerfully created by you, this basket highlights the necessary tools you will need to shift your dream into a reality.
All or nothing thinking keeps you stuck, instead imagine a full rainbow when addressing your transition baskets.
