Would you like to be more successful than you are right now? Would you like to be free from the stress of performance forever? We become receptive to success when we embrace a state of relaxation. The more we relax and surrender through our stress, the more our energy field expands and opens up. This expanded energy field attracts more success into our life. When we relax, fears disappear and grace appears. The energy of relaxation carries a high vibration which instantly shifts us into a receptive state. In this state we allow the universe to accede to our request for success. On the other hand, we automatically repel all the good which is knocking at our door when we are under stress. The energy of stress blocks any success that we otherwise may attract. Hence our power lies in our ability to relax!! Claim this power by going infinitely deeper into relaxation and allow the burden of performance to be lifted from your life forever. Remember, as we change the inner attitude of our mind, the outer aspects of our lives change automatically.

The best part is that anyone can learn to relax. It is not a difficult process. In fact, it is our natural state. No wonder it feels so good when we relax!

In order to experience relaxation all we need to do is tap into that part of ourselves which is always relaxed. Have you ever consciously connected with this part? This connection is very easy too; we simply have to decide to let ourselves relax!! That is all. So just breathe, let go, and remind yourself that this moment is all that you have for now. Make a schedule for relaxation. Claim your space. Affirm to yourself, ‘The more I relax, the more success I attract.’

Here are three basic techniques to help you relax:
Whenever you notice yourself worrying about success in any field, just stop whatever it is that you are doing and pay attention to your breath. Start deep breathing. Breathe in through your nose and breathe out through your mouth. The very act of breathing anchors you to your body. Take a moment right now and take three deep breaths. With each in-breath, breathe in relaxation, and with each out-breath, release any stress or tension you may have. Do you notice a feeling of deep peace in your body? Breathe deeper and breathe out all the thoughts and emotions that make you feel you’re stressed. Breathe until you can feel the peace. Let this glorious energy of peace seep into you. You deserve this and much more!! This peace will centre you, and automatically re-open your energy field to receive the abundance of success that is waiting for you.

Another powerful way to open up your energy field lies in your ability to express gratitude for all the success that you have experienced so far. The energy of gratitude can be very, very relaxing. Gratefulness instantly shifts the energy in every cell of our body. As we flood our body-mind with gratitude, we begin to feel complete and whole at a deeper level. When we are grateful we realise that there is a lot to be grateful for in our lives. We stop feeling like failures. When we do not express gratitude, we stay in a state of lack. This state creates stress in our body-mind. Connecting with deep feelings of gratitude makes us feel that everything is already perfect exactly as it is. We realise that manifesting more success is not the most important thing in our life. This concept releases us from the burden of expectations, and on one level instantly makes us feel free! So every time you begin to strive for more success in your life, just stop for a moment... and be grateful for what you already have. You’ll see how effortlessly you will attract more success if you are being grateful for it.

The third technique is to visualise being successful. The process of visualisation (which is also known as day-dreaming) supports our entire body-mind in relaxing. It creates a blueprint for success in our subconscious mind. When we create a mental movie of what our success story looks and feels like, our subconscious believes that this mental movie is our current reality; as the subconscious mind does not know the difference between reality and imagination.

Imagine biting into a fresh lime; do you feel the sourness on your tongue? Visualisation makes your mind believe and know that you are already successful right now; your whole body relaxes in its wake and simultaneously starts magnetising what you want in your life. The key to a highly effective visualisation lies in connecting strong feelings to the pictures that you create in your mind. Take a moment right now and see yourself manifesting what you desire. Feel the strong positive feelings this imagery creates. Yes, success is not something to acquire, it is something to tune into!

So relax and instantly create a successful state of mind easily and effortlessly. You will shape-shift your reality in less than 30 days! Simply relax and allow yourself to feel, know and attract an abundant successful life!!!
