This blog offers information that I’ve learned from my parrot, Shakespeare. Shaky (short for Shakespeare), has been with me for some thirty years now. Amongst the many lessons he taught me, one of my favorites is his demonstration of how to Aspire Higher by setting S.M.A.R.T. Goals.
Shaky is a confident bird, not shy and very direct about getting what he wants. He knows how to get results without wasting a lot of time. I have learned to use his S.M.A.R.T. strategy to do the things I need to do in order to make my dreams come true. And now, over the next five blogs, I am going to share this secret with you.
S.M.A.R.T. is an acronym for Shaky’s five-step process of right living:
Simple … Meaningful … Action … Responsible … Tuned in
Day Five: Tuned In
Day five: Today, we are going to look at the fifth step – Tuned in
What are you tuning into? YOU! You are tuning into your intuitive nature. This part of you is connected to the Infinite Intelligence that created this whole incredible universe. Perhaps you may want to listen when this still, small voice speaks. The intuitive part of you does not feel attacked by failure; it simply looks at what you need to do next to improve the situation and advance toward your aspiration. Shaky is forever checking in with his intuitive nature. When I give him a carrot, he takes a moment before biting into it. What’s he doing? Being sure that he’s getting an “A-OKAY” signal from deep inside. I’ve actually seen him drop the carrot and refuse to eat it. I cannot figure out why. But he knows why. That’s between him and his essence.
An awakened person is aware that his intuition is always ready to give a helping hand. Dare to speak to it. Open yourself to this voice by saying, “If my ego’s way is so right, then why do I feel so bad when it’s wrong.” What you are doing is making a divide between your ego and your essence. Now turn your ear inward (deep inward), and listen to what you essence is trying to tell you to help you make your dreams come true. Right there – that’s SMART to do.
When you are S.M.A.R.T. about your aims and aspirations, you create clear conditions so the manifestation penetrates your reality without complication. Stop loving the noise of your own mind; be S.M.A.R.T. Make it clear to yourself that your intuition is ready to help you. Drop the fluff.
