I read something recently that is helping me pull myself out of the magnetic field of procrastination. I read that when we are aligned with procrastination we are aligned with fear. As most of us spiritualists know, there are only two real emotions or energies - Love & Fear. All other emotions cascade from these.
My goal this year more than ever is to align with love.
That is, to align with my higher Self. Hence my previous post on "Selfishness".
I find myself asking this question all the time now.
"Am I aligned with love or fear?" It's not that hard to work out.
But the problem prior to this was not knowing what I was aligned with due to lack of awareness of why I was constantly being distracted from what I love doing.
So, procrastination aligns me with fear. Really? How?
It takes me away from doing what I love.
It slows down my productivity or worse still, brings it to a complete halt.
It keeps me in my head & not my heart.
It then makes me feel guilty for not achieving my goals for the day.
Which then makes me feel weak, lazy, slack, not good enough, sad and full of self doubt.
It's a downer.
I have tried to turn procrastination into a nice guy, but it just doesn't pan out. He really isn't worth my time or energy. He comes all dressed up in cute bubbles and looks like so much fun to play with, but in the end you are left standing there, empty handed. Poof! The bubbles have evaporated. You got nothin' and you feel like a lost child who has just had the fun pulled right out from under you.
Don't be taken in by this dark handsome fellow of fear disguised as fun.
Align with love. It lasts longer and serves your highest self.
Then when your work is done & you have kicked all your goals for the day, get out your bubbles of joy & go play.
You deserve it!
