Here I go another definition: Shift~ Change in emphasis, direction or focus. To replace the word change with shift sometimes makes it not feel so daunting. A shift can be small, a little this way a little that way. I have used this word a lot with my goals for Savor Your Soul, shifts that I want to make in order to help things flow better, easier to understand, things that make a little more sense to me and for me. We all grow and evolve, in doing so, there are many shifts we make in the process, this would be the part where your are shifting your focus, direction and or emphasis.
A shift can be anything, from thoughts, words, actions, all helping you to align with what you are trying to accomplish and where you want to go. Again, a shift being small, a minor change, you may need to go back and forth for a while until you get I right. Maybe you don't want to change your direction but you want to change how you get there. You shift things around in order to get it right for you, or to help things make more sense to you or others.
Shifting thoughts, thoughts that may not serve your best intentions, thoughts to improve your being, thoughts that keep you from accomplishing goals, thoughts that are just thoughts that get in your way...
Shifting actions, actions that don't serve your highest good, actions that keep you from getting where you want to go, actions that are not in your best interest, actions that do not make you feel good...
Shifting words, words that do not express your true meaning, words that hold you back, words that others do not understand, words that don't come from the heart, words that hurt...
In making these shifts in your life, try to keep grace in your thoughts words and actions, always coming from a place of love and feeling gratitude for all that you are and all that you have. It will be in your best interest to think of your overall wellness when it comes to shifting, the body, mind and spirit. Shift from the inside out, showing awareness and connections with all that you are.
