How to create your dream life-Michelle Bowater

Want to create your DREAM LIFE in 2017? Here’s how…

For many of us the lead up to Christmas is crazy to say the least! It’s hectic all throughout December with all the usual stuff plus there’s the parties, shopping and organising everything for the big day. And then it’s here and gone, done and dusted for another year. We finally get to chill out and have some time to relax and enjoy life before heading back to work in January. I don’t know about you, but for me heading back to work after such an awesome holiday wasn’t always something I was particularly stoked about…

So if you’re back at work and coming down from your amazing break keep reading for how I’ve created my dream life and how you can too in 2017! This is exactly what I do each year to ensure I am creating a life I absolutely love love love to live!

Here we go… find a soothing spot and do whatever you do to relax. Turn on your fav relaxing tunes, make a hot cup of herbal tea, get out your journal and open your heart. Get ready to be really honest with yourself.


REFLECTION
 & CELEBRATION of 2016

Often we are so focused on the next thing that we forget to turn around and look back at what we did create and celebrate how amazing we really did. The first step is to reflect on your 2016 year and celebrate it! Ask yourself the following questions:

  • What were my 3 greatest achievements that make me feel proud?
  • What were my 3 biggest learnings/lessons?
  • What didn’t I achieve that I wanted to in 2016? Is it still relevant for 2017? If so, keep it in mind for later on.
  • What am I most grateful for from last year?
  • What do I want to let go of? For example, behaviours that are holding you back, a job, a person, a pattern, a grudge that you are holding on to, fears or limiting beliefs.
  • What would I like to change about me?

Well done gorgeous! Now you have reflected on your year it’s time to look ahead and face your future. Let’s think about what you want to create in 2017.

          Only you can make it happen for you…

BUILD your perfect 2017

You can create anything you dream of – I know IT IS POSSIBLE for you! Here you’re gaining the knowledge. Then it’s up to you to take the action to make it happen. Make it a must and choose to take that action daily!

Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths to connect to the powerhouse of your unconscious mind. Start day dreaming and imagine your perfect 2017 year. Be there looking through your own eyes. Think about people or places you would like to visit, who you would like to be or what you want to create. Stay there a few minutes.

Now you are relaxed and have visited your future set your intentions for the year…

I intend to be…

I intend to have…

I intend to see…

I intend to do…

I intend to feel…

When we set our intention we set a sequence of events off that is way beyond our conscious comprehension. Now you’ve done this let’s map out your perfect day for 2017.

Everything, and I mean everything in life is a choice. From the clothes you wear to the job you have, it’s all a choice. Many of us choose to focus on what we don’t want. Let’s turn that around right now and focus on what you DO WANT for 2017.

Open your heart and think about what REALLY matters to you. Think about your perfect day. Write your answers to the following questions down. This will help to remove any blocks.

  • What would my perfect day be like if money were unlimited?
  • What would I do if I could spend all my time on living my dream life?

Map out your perfect day by the hour, or half hour if you choose.


My perfect day…

7am…

8am…

9am… and so on

Here are a few questions to get your juices following…

  • What time do you wake up? Who do you wake up with? Where do you wake up?
  • What do you do when you get up? Exercise? Have a homemade organic coffee? Go for a beach walk?
  • What are you doing for your health, wealth, relationships?
  • Are you with other people or alone for the day? Or a bit of both?
  • What work are you doing?
  • What do you do for fun?
  • What hobbies are you enjoying?
  • How do you feel about yourself and your life?

Have a look at your perfect day and think about how far it is from where you currently are. How different is it? Be honest with yourself.

Now think about all the things in your perfect day that you will create in 2017. The things you will take action toward to ensure you’re chipping away and getting closer to that DREAM LIFE of yours!


My goals for 2017 are…

3 wealth goals I want to create are…

3 career goals I want to create are…

3 health goals I want to create are…

3 relationship goals I want to create are…

3 things I will do just for FUN in 2017…

Describe your 2017 year in 3 words…

3 things I commit to not doing in 2017…

Write down the benefits of you achieving your goals in 2017? What will achieving all these things give me?

If you are struggling to come up with goals which many people do, go back to your perfect day and imagine it. Close your eyes and dream about it, hear it, see it, feel it and make sense of how it will play out for you – get all your senses fired up! Connect with your heart and what REALLY matters to you in life.

If fears come up for you, know that’s a normal part of change and growth. And it’s a good thing. It means you are making the necessary changes for you. A belief I like to live by is, feel the fear and do it anyway!

So again, close your eyes and connect with your breathing. Dream about your perfect 2017, see it, hear it, feel it and make sense of all those goals and dreams coming true for you. Experience your perfect day as if you are already there living it. Connect with how you feel when you experience ALL of it, how amazing your life IS NOW that you have all those things! BELIEVE IT!


Create your VISION BOARD for 2017

You now know exactly what you want to create in 2017 so let’s have some fun! Get your creative juices following and create a visual representation of your goals and dreams for the year. You choose how you will do it. I do mine with pictures from the internet. I make a collage in a Word document and print it off. But you might like to cut out pictures from a magazine or newspaper and glue them on. Or you may draw them.

Once you have created your vision board put it in a place where you see it at least daily. I like the bathroom mirror as I can dream about my goals when I’m brushing my teeth. Seeing your vision board speaks to your unconscious mind and literally tells it to go looking for those goals and dreams. The more you see your board the more you are communicating your hearts desires to your unconscious mind.

You MUST BELIEVE all your dreams can come true so if you have limiting thoughts come in just become aware of them and simply choose a positive one. One that supports you creating the life of your dreams in 2017.

          –HOT TIP–
          If you have kids do one as a family and one of your own. The kids will love getting creative with this!

Well done on sticking in there to the end! Send me your vision board, I’d love to see what you’re going to create in your world this year.

I have tons of exciting stuff happening in 2017 so stayed tuned.

Love Mich
