One thing that is often missing from people’s lives is a deep connection to self. The core of who you are, the light of love that you were born with and is continuously nudging you to be all that you can be is your Essence.
Now, you have an opportunity to allow your Essence to rise up and show you how good it feels to be free of stress, at least for a little while.
One of the most important things you can do for yourself is to find time for what I’ll call, your Solo Time.
Solo Time is when you intentionally quiet all your outer pursuits and allow your inner process to unfold.
This can be:
- Active: walking, dancing, running, swimming, singing, yoga, playing a musical instrument, etc.
- Creative: writing, painting, drawing, weaving, pottery, gardening, etc.
- Still: prayer, contemplation, self-hypnosis, guided visualization, meditation, or a combination.
Any Solo Time you allow yourself will feed your soul and help you stay connected to your essence.
But when you do the guided visualization, it is important that you find a Safe Container in which to do them. That is any place where you feel safe to be yourself, where you will be uninterrupted by with no distractions, no cell phone, or children knocking on the door. Just you and a willingness to explore who you really are.
So find your Safe Container, then ideally, set a time each week, or each day, when you will gift yourself your much needed Solo Time.
Now it’s time to enjoy your first guided visualization. You can listen on your computer, or download to your MP3 player or iPod. If you find this useful, you will discover much more help in the Free Courses.
Reconnect To Your Essence Guided Visualization
Do this guided visualization (I’ll also be calling them meditations) as often as you wish. If you can give yourself the time to do it once a day, you will discover how much more calm and relaxed you are.

Stephen asked me and Jaz where we would like to go in the future. It was an interesting conversation. But it got me thinking.
The funny thing about the future is it is impacted by the choices and decisions you make today. What things in your life today would you like to change in the future?
That’s not a rhetorical question. Actually think about it and write a list. It can be material things, your job, your relationship (or relationship status), or how happy you are.
Okay, now you’ve got your list. What can you do to begin the process of making those changes?
Too much to think about? It is for most, which is what causes people to get stuck.
So pick the most important thing on your list. Only one thing. Now what’s the first step can you take today or tomorrow?
And what steps after that first step? And the next…until the change or the goal has been achieved?
If you want, you can write to me and share your plan. It makes it more real when you share it, and the more real it is, the more likely you will follow through and make it a reality. Use the contact link above.
Now here’s the big in-your-face thing about wanting to improve your life, make a change, or achieve a goal. If you don’t start now, and worse, if you don’t do anything at all, guess what?
Next year you’ll be in exactly the same spot, wanting, wishing, hoping things were different.
Why not get started and be like the one percent who take that first step.
Your adult self knows there are no princes. But can you really deny that there isn’t just a little bit of that wish still left in your heart?

But that dream is interfering with your happiness. Watch this video to find out why:
