Last week we talked about living consciously. I’d love to hear what juicy goodness you’re uncovering by being awake and aware!
Today, I want you to acknowledge how you TRULY feel about your life, by looking at the six human needs.
If you are newly subscribed, hello! Every Tuesday at 2pm (GMT), I’ll be hosting a lesson from my book, The Self Love Affair: A Woman’s Guide to a Daring & Mighty Life, live in The Self Love Hub Facebook Group. You’re very welcome to get involved!
The Six Human Needs is a concept that was adapted from ‘Maslow’s Theory’ by Tony Robbins and is used by many life coaches today. The first four needs are for survival and the last two are for fulfillment.
The first four needs from this theory are a requirement for your survival. How you create certainty, variety, significance and love in your life will indicate how healthily you are getting those survival needs met.
The last two needs from this theory are a requirement for your fulfillment.
Whether you are even filling the areas of growth and contribution is a strong indicator as to whether you are feeling fulfilled in life or not.
This week I invite you to do a little exercise to discover how much you are living your life in survival mode versus having the experience of thriving.
On a scale of 1-10, I want you to rate (honestly) how much each need is being fulfilled in your life RIGHT NOW.
Get those journals out!
How much of your basic necessities are being met so that you feel safe, comfortable and secure? Where do you FEEL certain in life? List everything you are certain about.
We need an element of mystery and surprise in our lives to make us grow. It keeps things interesting. Where do you have uncertainty in your life? List everything you are uncertain about.
We all need to feel that our life has meaning. We need to know that we are important. List everything that makes you feel significant, special and needed in your life.
4. LOVE / CONNECTION
We want to love and be loved. We want to feel connected with others, and love ourselves too. List everything in your life that makes you feel loved and connected.
You are a Spiritual being having a human experience. Your Spirit is creative – all it knows is to evolve and grow! Where are you experiencing growth in your life?
When we are fulfilling all our basic human needs and our Spirit is growing, there is a natural desire to help and serve others. Where are you contributing to others in your life?
Now you know where you are at, you can do something about it. It’s time to get those ratings up and those needs fulfilled.
There is SO MUCH MORE I explore around this, so if you missed this week’s Facebook Live session, you can watch the replay below.
And don’t forget, you’re always welcome to share your experience on Facebook or by replying to this email.
