Values are the cornerstone of fulfillment. When you live in alignment with your values, you experience harmony. When you live out of synch with your values, you experience dissonance and stress. But how do you even find out what your values really are?
Here’s an exercise you can try to discern what’s really important to you, way down deep.
- Mine for your values. Think of a time in your life when everything was just right. What was true for you at that time?
- Identify the values that were being honored at that time. What was present that was so meaningful as to make it a memorable time?
- Work with those values a bit more. Name them, define them, rank them.
With this kind of thought process, you can get a preliminary list of the values that make your life worth living. You can use your newfound clarity about those values to make better decisions and align your life to what really matters in your heart.
To take this values clarification process further, you might be interested in participating in a FREE visualization exercise I’ve posted on my website. You will hear me guiding you in my own voice through the visualization in Step 1 above, which will help you connect more deeply to your ideal experience and uncover the values more easily.
