The one question you need to ask yourself before you begin each day

You have to be willing to give it all up.

Each day, you have to give up, how you think your day is supposed to look, how you think your supposed to act, how you think you have to feel, eat, say and what you think you should do. Why? Because all of the things we THINK we have to do, are always what we believe according to society.

This means that each day, you conform to someone else’s idea of the ‘perfect’ day. And that’s what you will do every day, if you don’t take back your power beautiful.

You have to be willing to give it all up.

When I first started on my healing journey, I would turn to all sorts of books, coaches and mentors for advice, who all lead me in the right direction, and whom I am so deeply grateful for. But one thing became so clear to me as I started to step further and further in to my truth, in to my power, and in to my authentic self.

With so much advice coming from all sorts of directions, I was losing sight of what Alissa wanted for Alissa, and I began to start each day conforming to what I thought I SHOULD do, and this is where I was going wrong.

It wasn’t until I had a light bulb moment one morning in my meditation, that made me realise I was actually losing sight of who I was, and what I needed to be doing for me. And it all came down to this simple question, that I now ask myself every single morning.

How do I want to feel today?

This one question has completely changed how the rest of my day pans out. Because I call the shots. I am deciding HOW I want to feel each day, which means I can operate from a place of truth and authenticity, and more so then anything, it is so freeing and enlightening. When you are living for you, and not for someone else, life becomes so much more effortless because you don’t have to BE anyone but you. How beautiful and freeing does just the thought of that sound!?

You can have this too. In fact, it is your freaking birth right to have this freedom sister! Each morning, I want you to take a moment (literally 10 seconds) and ask yourself that same question. Ask yourself how do you want to feel today? You might want to feel happy, free, loved, successful, alive, energised, strong, the list goes on really!

Once you have decided how you want to feel, it is then up to YOU to make it happen.

What do you need to do to feel loved if thats how you want to feel? Is it taking yourself for a stroll in nature on your lunch break?

What do you need to do to feel successful if thats how you want to feel? Is it head down, bum up, with no distractions so you can complete another task off your to-do list that is going to get you closer to your goal?

How your day pans out, always is, and always should be in YOUR hands. It is your life, turn inward and take back your power instead of handing it to the outer world.

Something else I love to do…

What ever you choose to do, as long as it is your truth, is exactly what you need do for that day. Remember there is nothing you HAVE to do.

So a little extra something I love to do each morning, that helps me tune in to my calling for that day, is pull a card from Gabby Bernsteins MIRACLES NOW deck of cards. Each card has a beautiful message that you can reflect back, on and use to help guide you through out your day if at any moment you feel like your in a little bit of a funk (and lets face it girlfriend, we all have those moments, right!)

So how are you going to take back your power? Make a promise and commitment to yourself, that from now on, your life is in your control, and each day you get to decide HOW you want to feel, and how you want to live it.

With that being said, if you want to start learning how to begin each day, you can grab my brand new e-book, ‘My Daily Canvas’ ! It is your step by step guide for 30 days to help you create new habits every morning, (the same habits) so that you can take charge of HOW you want to live each day.
