Do you ever feel like you’re sleepwalking through life and aren’t sure how to wake up and reconnect? This is a fun exercise that will have you feeling more alive in no time!
Go through all of your old photos and find one that best represents you at your most plugged in.
What do I mean by that? You know how you can look at someone (especially their eyes) and see right away that they are disconnected – checked out – distracted – numb – sleeping through life. Well, this photo is going to be the exact opposite of that!
It can be from any time in your life where you were engaged, excited, awake! Look for a photo where your soul is shining right through your eyes! Look for a photo where you are truly living – rather than just going through the motions. Look for a photo that fills you with a remembering and an inner knowing that in that moment, you were truly living – truly alive – truly present.
Once you have the photo, make sure you do one (or all) of the following to ensure that you’ll see it often throughout your day:
Here’s why it’s important to post it where you will see it often:
You are – in a way – rewiring your brain.
When you get stuck in a habit, it takes practice and evidence to get out of it. So, because your habit has been feeling disconnected and numb, it can be hard to even remember a time when you weren’t feeling this way.
This photo is your evidence! It’s there to tell your brain that this can happen – you can plug in and be fully alive! And now you have proof!
What this photo isn’t:
What you are doing in this exercise is taking the aspects of yourself from the photo that you love, and you’re bringing them with you on your journey into the present moment. You’re really stepping into the feeling rather than the circumstances. You can’t bring the circumstances forward, but you can definitely bring the feelings forward.
Now that you have chosen your photo and put it up where you will see it, take a moment to answer the following questions:
This exercise will help you remember a moment in your life where you were feeling alive so you can believe that you will be able to feel that way again. Be sure to look at this photo several times a day and really take in the feelings of aliveness. Tapping into those feelings will help you wake up and live more fully in your present life. Are you ready to come back to life?
