Are you running from or running to? Get clear on your motives for moving and the foundations you can start building now to truly thrive when abroad.
Conscious Relocation is about getting in the right headspace and, more importantly the right soul space, to design your move overseas.
For many of us, 2020 is the year it’s become apparent that the hamster wheel we’ve been churning away on is no longer working, or rather, we’re just done tired of running.
From How Stella Got Her Groove Back to Eat. Pray. Love, the popular narrative is one of travel as an innately life-changing experience.
Yet the reality is that with relocation, a very different process from a summer holiday, you can save yourself a lot of heartache and hassle by doing the work before your leave.
If the stress of your current environment feels unbearable and you’re willing to unlearn the beliefs you’ve been spoon-fed about “successful" adulting then Conscious Relocation could be the process for you.
An opportunity to refocus
Part of the process of committing to making your relocation dreams a reality lies in giving yourself permission to do all the things you’ve wanted to do.
Conscious Relocation is about being intentional about nurturing your vision but at the same time, being easy with yourself. This move does not have to be perfect because true perfection doesn't actually exist.
The success of your new life will not lie in how many likes it gets on Instagram so please ditch the picture of perfection that you are judging your progress by.
If this is something that has been brewing inside you for a long time, now is the time to step into who you’ve been becoming since the day that you were born.
Conscious Relocation is my invitation to you to come on this journey with me as we live out the best lives we can possibly lead abroad - by being intentional about your purpose and the impact you wish to create.
Ask people in the midst of agonising over relocation which problem they most struggle with when it comes to relocation and it’s usually one of three options: fear, uncertainty and lack of clarity.
Often linked to fear is the sensation of overwhelm - where does one even start in terms of planning?
Breaking the process down step by step into smaller, more manageable goals is a useful strategy that helps you set off on the right foot. Build in flexibility to allow you not to sweat the small stuff.
What’s the worst that could happen? Think about your biggest screw up to date. What did you learn from it? How did you learn to live with the consequences?
Chances are that, even if you messed up so bad you ended up doing jail time, the fact that you’re here reading this article shows that life always leads us forwards.
Here’s a secret, it’s not about you
But here’s the killer point - this move isn’t just about you. If you’ve read this far, you’re clearly a person who knows that they need to fulfill their purpose because you have a unique gift to share with the world.
By letting your doubts get one up on you, who knows the number of people in countries where they can really do with a helping hand, will miss out on the value that only you can give to their lives?
Trust your desire; it's what will drive you forward, even on the worst of days. Your subconscious is keeping you safe but what are you missing out on by playing safe?
Ultimately, Conscious Relocation is about taking back control of your life. On your deathbed who’s gonna be making that transition? No one but you so don’t let anyone interfere with how you live your life. Ya heard?
