I’m just going to come right out and say it:
Rushing is a way of keeping yourself small.
Being late is a way of dimming your power.
Chaos around time keeps you stuck.
You may be fantasizing that the only way you’re going to be able to get out of your cycle of never having enough time is to figure out a way to miraculously add more hours to your day.
Well, that’s not going to happen (at least not in our linear time/space reality).
But you can absolutely get more out of the hours you have. In fact, you can actually stretch them so that you not only get more done, but you also enjoy your time more and so that you become more powerful all at the same time.
Say what? Yep. Seriously.
What I’m talking about is time-bending. Ever heard of it? It’s a practice where you can actually stretch or shrink the hours and minutes of your life, depending on whether you want the moment to feel longer (making out with someone who makes you weak in the knees) or to make the moment feel shorter (driving with both of your children screaming in the back seat while you listen to the Frozen soundtrack for the gazillionth time).
Ready to cure your chronic lateness and learn how to become a time-bender?
Watch the video below for four quick tips to stretch (or shrink) time at your will.
Once you’ve watched the video, leave a comment and let me know:
- Which one of the tips are you going to try first?
- Do you have other time-bending practices?
Tell me all about it. I LOVE talking and learning about how we can change our experience of time, and I have no doubt that you have some awesome ideas.
Remember this: In the early 20th century, Einstein proved that time is relative. We can shift it at our will. Time-bending is available to everyone, absolutely free, and practicing it will change your experience of life in such profound ways that the top of your head might blow right off.
You don’t have to live as a servant to time anymore. You can become the master of it by bending time at your will, and the time to start is NOW.
