Wondering about the difference between conscious and unconscious living?
Living unconsciously = living by default ie. the complete OPPOSITE of what we’re trying to do as Conscious Creators! In this video, I discuss the only real element you need to move from unconscious living to conscious living.
Video Transcript: The Difference Between CONSCIOUS & Unconscious Living
Hi guys, it’s Jenn from the Aligned Life. Welcome back to my channel. Today, we are going to talk about the difference between conscious living and unconscious living. [Music]
I’ve talked a lot on my blog before about the power of conscious living or intentional living, and that is where you are conscious of what you want in life and set about making that your reality. So, there really is only one ingredient that you need to go from living unconsciously to living consciously, and that is simply setting goals.
I know that people in the spiritual world don’t really like to talk about goal setting because that sounds like something that you have to do with your work career, and maybe it doesn’t sound very spiritual. But you can have goals for all kinds of different things, and actually, it’s the studying of the goal that just marks the beginning of this journey.
I have lived unconsciously before, and I have definitely in the last six-seven years turned into a conscious living person. So, I just want to talk a little bit about what the difference is between what those states look like.
When I was in the unconscious state, I wasn’t future-focused. I was reacting to things as they came by. I was like my life was like this, and I was just kind of bobbing up and down in the ocean without a direction to go in. So, the difference is now that I have switched over to this conscious way of living and being is now I have intentions. I am set on making them come true, so I have a direction to swim out in the ocean in. Right?
Let’s just clarify that both things take effort. So, you can be living unconsciously and making a lot of effort in your life. You can be thrashing around, you can be moving from here to there and back again, and it might seem like you’re taking action, but really you’re not being intentional about it. There is no underlying reason for you to do the things you’re doing; you’re just doing them, you’re just occupying time, you’re just filling the space.
And to be fair, a lot of amazing and magical things can happen to you when you don’t plan them; synchronicities can still come into your existence, you can still change your life by taking hold of these opportunities. But when you have a goal, when you have a big goal, you have an underlying reason to do the things you do, you have a direction to go in, and even if that goal changes, which it probably will—they always do because we’re always changing—having the goal will take you further down the path than if you just stayed and bobbed in the water alone for a long time.
I just wanted to talk about this because I still think there are so many people who are trying to manifest happiness or wealth or love, and they don’t really know what that looks like. But it is really important to get clear on what those things mean to you; otherwise, you’ll never know when you get there.
When you have goals that are too big and loose-looking, it is really difficult to make them happen because you don’t even know what the next step is. So, I highly recommend you guys to think about your life plan and the big picture.
So, like where you want to be if your life is perfect and you had the perfect day, what would that look like? Think about what that looks like, and then kind of start to work backward. So, think about where you are; you always have to start where you are. So, you need to make some next steps to get there. And whether you’re manifesting or just setting goals and passing them in the normal way, it’s much better to break your goals down into small bite-sized pieces rather than getting overwhelmed because you’re not way over here yet.
If you want to live a magical life, if you want to live up to your potential as a creative being on this planet Earth, I really invite you guys to make and set a ton of goals for yourself. So many people don’t set goals, and so many people will end up one day waking up and feeling really unfulfilled and really lost and really confused, and that’s because they haven’t been thinking about where they’re going.
You need to consciously create the life of your dreams. It doesn’t just magically appear with you deciding on it first. Deciding on it first is the first step. So, I just really want to challenge you guys to bring more goals, more intentions, more things to pursue into your life because the more things you can think of to pursue, the better and sparklier and happier life will become.
You will be expanding into your full potential, and your life will be coming up to meet you there, and it really is a magical state of being, and I highly recommend it.
