Hi, this is Miriam Castilla and welcome to the Manifesting Playground for Soulful Women in Business – where we practice the art & science of Effectology – marrying the magical with the practical so you can have more money and more time, the easy way – without all the hustle!

Let’s talk about how to manage your time.

We all have 24 hours in the day, 7 days in our week. We want to make the most out of that. Time is the resource we have to produce the outcomes that we’re looking for everyday. But the thing to recognize about time is that it is actually entirely experiential.

You know how sometimes you’re sitting in a really boring show – maybe it’s your kid’s Christmas show, maybe it’s some concert, and you just wish that it was over. It just drags on and on and on. Or maybe you’ve even experienced this when you’re meditating and you think, “Okay, I’ll sit down and meditate for 10 minutes.” You set a timer and you’re sitting there, meditating or thinking about meditating, and suddenly think, “Surely, my timer is broken. Surely, I didn’t set it. I’ve been here for hours. What is going on?” But when you check the timer, no, you’ve actually only been there for about 5 or 6 minutes.

At other times you’ve been so in the moment, you’ve had such a good time, that time flies – just like that and you think, “How can it be time to leave already? We’ve only just started!”

Time is entirely experiential. We can actually bend time. We can expand time or we can contract it with our awareness and our focus. You can slow time down and, really, that’s what you want to do when you need to get the most out of your time. But the thing is, you cannot manage the time itself, you cannot “grab” the time and stretch it, but what you CAN do is change you and your experience of that time.

So, how do you manage time?

You don’t. You manage YOU.

The way to do that is to actually learn to manage your focus and your awareness so that you get to that moment where you’re so entranced in the activity you’re in, that time seems to stand still.

The number one way to be able to start training your focus so that you’re not distracted like a rabbit in the headlights, just jumping from one thing to the next… you know, shiny bright objects syndrome… is to start meditating. Because that’s what meditation is. It is a practice. A practice in focusing your mind on one single activity. That might be noticing your breath, focusing on a mantra, trying to go into silence, or just focusing on a guided meditation that you’re listening to.

So, if you’d like to practice that a little bit more and you haven’t yet got access to my meditation library, make sure that you grab that. The link is below. There are 52 meditations on all sorts of amazing topics. They’re actually hypnotic meditations, which means that they tap directly into your unconscious mind and help you create some real shifts at the unconscious level so you won’t just be training your focus, you’ll actually be doing some real, important work – starting to make some shifts that will help you gain more clarity, more focus, start to heal some old patterns, and start to attract more abundance – all with your eyes shut!

So grab that from the link below if you’re not yet a member and until next time, keep on embracing your beautiful and absolutely unlimited potential.

Bye for now!
