7 Ways to Create an Inspired Life

The word inspired means “motivated to creative thought and action; to be enlivened.” Inspire also means “to breath in life.” These are seven simple ways you can infuse your daily living with more inspiration:

  1. SET THE IMAGINATIVE ADULT IN YOU FREE.
    Children come into life overflowing with inspiration. But as they grow into responsible adults, the light of inspiration dims. Reignite that spark of inspiration. Use your imagination to create, play and have fun.
     
  2. LET JOY BE YOUR GUIDE.
    Joy and enthusiasm are signs that you are connected to your inspiration. Include in each day those things that you truly enjoy. Be where you feel your best. Make choices based on what you “love” to do rather than what you think you “should” do.
     
  3. ELIMINATE JOY-SMOTHERING THOUGHTS.
    Unrealistic expectations cut off the flow of inspiration. Transform negative thoughts into those that support and uplift you. Release worry, resentments and regrets. Create life anew with powerful thoughts of possibility and gratitude.
     
  4. SILENCE THE INNER CRITIC AND OPEN TO YOUR WISE SELF.
    You cannot hear the guidance from your intuition, or Wise Self, when your Inner Critic is nagging. To silence the critic, listen to and follow only the loving encouraging guidance from within.
     
  5. TAKE TIME FOR RELAXATION AND REFLECTION.
    Meditation is a very effective way to open to your inspiration. Slow down to simply breathe and focus on the here and now moment. Use your sense to attune to your surroundings. Take time to be in nature. Let yourself be awed by beautiful music and art. Bring balance to the “being” and “doing” of life.
     
  6. RELEASE YOUR ATTACHMENT TO APPROVAL FROM OTHERS.
    Be more concerned about what you think of yourself rather than what others think of you. Know and honor what has value for you. Follow your own dreams. Create and express the talents and gifts that are uniquely yours.
     
  7. LET YOURSELF BE LOVED.
    Let yourself be supported by others who believe in you. Love and appreciate yourself even more. Surround yourself with those who inspire you. Open to the Inspiration all around you. Breathe it in to your life, and offer it out again. Inspire and be inspired.
