The stress and strain of constantly being connected can sometimes take your life -- and your well-being -- off course. GPS For The Soul can help you find your way back to balance.
GPS Guides are our way of showing you what has relieved others' stress in the hopes that you will be able to identify solutions that work for you. We all have de-stressing "secret weapons" that we pull out in times of tension or anxiety, whether they be photos that relax us or make us smile, songs that bring us back to our heart, quotes or poems that create a feeling of harmony, or meditative exercises that help us find a sense of silence and calm. We encourage you to look at the GPS Guide below, visit our other GPS Guides here, and share with us your own personal tips for finding peace, balance and tranquility.
In her GPS Guide below, Kathy Anderson leads a soothing mediation with six positive actions and affirmations that will help increase your awareness for a more fulfilling day.
A First Step Today: Schedule ten minutes of “quiet time” in the morning and ten minutes in the evening to connect with the passion and purpose within you. Affirmation: I am empowered and alive as I venture within myself and allow my passion and purpose to come into my life!
A First Step Today: Write down the changes you most want in your life. Into which “new shoes” do you want to step? Affirmation: I am confident and excited as I reveal all of what I truly want in this lifetime!
A First Step Today: For each change you desire, create the thought “I can [insert the change you want].” The power of stating that you “can” programs your being to manifest the thought in your life. Affirmation: I feel powerful and able as I change my thoughts to enable what I want in this lifetime!
A First Step Today: Identify just one thing you can do today, and then each day for the next 30 days to create the change you want (even if it is a very small step). Before you know it, you will be far along your journey. Affirmation: I feel strong and in charge of my life as I make choices for me!
A First Step Today: Identify just one way you can be kind to you today, and just do it! Your loving kindness is the fuel in your life. Affirmation: I feel loved and cherished as I love and cherish me!
Breathe in and feel life fill you. Breathe out and release all that drains you. Relax and rediscover in the quiet space between your breathe, between your thoughts. A First Step Today: Try this this 8-minute “Power Meditation” to create your “pause,” reveal what is helping and hindering you on your path, and uncover the first step you need to take, and go to www.ChangeYourShoesNow.com to receive a complementary four-session “Meditation Makeover.” Affirmation: I am clear, purposeful, and full of energy as I allow all that is within me to makeover all that is around me!
