“If you are working on something you really care about, you don’t have to be pushed. The vision pulls you.” -Steve Jobs
The purpose of the Norther Star Ritual is to
- Realize who exactly it is you wish to be.
- Establish a constant set of goals and principals to which you can strive every day.
- Align your daily life to these goals.
The Northern Star Ritual
Imagine you are standing in a vast flat land with small hills miles ahead of you. A beautiful night sky colors everything in soft blue and indigo. Now imagine the Ultimate Version of yourself in whatever ways that are important to you: talents, kindness, education, whatever matters to you most. It does help if you’ve completed the How To Find Your Personal Mythology sheet.
That version of yourself appears as a giant star on the horizon, it lights your way and now you can see exactly the path to follow to become your Ultimate Self.
How & When To Use It
While it may seem like jumping to conclusions to believe you suddenly have this path, you need only ask yourself the following questions at any given time to experience it for yourself: “Do these thoughts or actions align with my Ultimate Self?” “What would my Ultimate Self do?” You will never worry again about what to think, what choice to make, or what action to take. Whenever you second guess what you are doing or thinking, simply activate your Power of Alignment by asking yourself questions about your Ultimate Self.
