Goddess Guidelines are a set of bespoke rules for living life in accordance to your true authentic self (aka living the Goddess Lifestyle). Unlike most rules in life, which are often limiting in nature, Goddess Guidelines are created to inspire growth and possibility, so that you can connect with your true desires and live a happy and fulfilling life.
Why do we need Goddess Guidelines?
Goddess Guidelines are important as they help us to choose actions that align us to our true authentic selves as opposed to conforming to what society tells us to do and be.
From the day we are born, we are being guided by those around us to conform to what is considered right and wrong. All with the intention of keeping us safe and secure in the world around us. Although a level of caution is crucial to our survival, too much can stifle our personal growth, keeping us small and stagnant. But we’re not meant to be either of those, Goddess. We are meant to be expansive and shine in our own special way.
Each of us is completely unique with our own set of needs and desires and so a one-size fits all model of living just isn’t possible if we want to feel truly happy and fulfilled in our lives. By creating our own set of Goddess Guidelines to follow we set ourselves up for success by…
1. Providing us with a framework
It’s one thing knowing how we want to live our lives, but actually following through on it is a different story. Without some form of structure, confusion and overwhelm can take over and we can end up stuck and stagnant.
However, when we create specific guidelines to live our lives by, we are much more likely to do the things that enable us to thrive and not just survive.
2. Helping us get back on track
The ebb and flow is a natural part of life. Sometimes we are going to feel motivated and in alignment and sometimes we are going to feel uninspired and a bit lost. That’s ok, as there is always much to learn from the challenges. However, we don’t want to be stuck there. By having guidelines to follow, we can easily get back on track when we are feeling lost.
3. Reminding us of what is important
It’s all too easy to get caught up in the day-to-day of life. We get consumed with things that in the grand scheme aren’t important or even relevant to our own true desires. But when we have our own set of clearly defined guidelines to follow we can put the focus back on what we actually need and want.
Below are some tips to help you create your own Goddess Guidelines…
1. Think about how you want to feel in your life
How we feel in any given moment is directly influencing our experience of it. It is also influencing the actions we take and the impact those decisions then make on our future. What guidelines would allow you to feel and act in a way that your present and future self would thank you for?
2. Identify the behaviour you want to change
One of the aims of the Goddess Guidelines is to modify your behaviour so that it is in alignment to your true authentic self. Think about the behaviors or traits that you know are not serving you and your life. What guidelines do you need to follow to amend these?
3. Remember, they need to be relevant to you and only you
This might sound obvious but it is surprising at just how much we let outside influences affect the decisions we make about our lives. Just because something seemingly works for someone else, it doesn’t mean that it will for you. What guidelines do you need to follow that are specific to your life?
4. They also need to work for your current life
Even if something has worked for you in the past, it doesn’t necessarily mean it is right for your present or future. Life is constantly changing and evolving, and so are we. It’s easy to keep taking the same action, even if it isn’t serving us. Don’t be afraid to change things up, even if it scares you. What guidelines do you need to follow that work for you and your life right now?
5. Make your Goddess Guidelines affirmations
Positive affirmations and motivating mantras are a great way to reprogramme our mindsets and subsequently our behaviour for our greatest good. So Goddess, why not create your Goddess Guidelines using this format? Keep them short but sweet and straight to the point so that they are simple to remember and easy to repeat.
Goddess Guidelines are a great tool to help you create a life that you love as they give a fun framework in which to live by. We’d love to hear what guidelines you come up with.
However, although Goddess Guidelines need to be individual to you, we’ve created some that we believe will benefit all Goddesses. So if you need some extra inspiration then you can check them out here.
