Ask yourself a question, any question to get your thoughts flowing. As you are listening to your thoughts you will begin to hear the way your feelings and thoughts are getting in the way of most of your creations.
Do you spend time getting to know your thoughts? One of the tools that I use with students and clients is that they should take a look at their random thoughts and just follow one thread and see where it takes them. Now you would think that would be a simple enough act, but do you know that most people cannot take more than 30 seconds on any thought?
In class last evening we spent most of the time going over the homework of looking at the stories that were preventing the students from really walking through the process of evaluating before an event and then right after.
I was speaking about how great it is when you begin to see and are able to not be in that knee-jerk reaction as you can feel those emotions that want to make you say things or do things that makes you wonder who the heck you really are. You are now beginning to stand back from that small inner child and the learned behaviours that have you repeating those patterns in your life that frustrate you so much because they have you acting and/or reacting in ways that are truly detrimental to your well-being.
When you are having some success with your evaluation process and you see your life changing and then poof something happens and you find yourself at a loss and it feels like you are right back at where you started, you are not! Why? It is simple… you are recognizing that you have taken steps to make change. You see and feel the changes in your life. Do not throw that away.
As you continue to look at all the tools you can use as you evaluate before you have a physical experience, you are actually preparing ahead of time. How many times, as you are beginning to take control of your life, have you wanted to kick that spirit pillow? As you asked yourself, “Why am I always seeing later what I could have done before hand?”
So as I was sharing earlier, when you feel numb and simply do not see the glory of the world around you, what you are really feeling is the separation from your true god source. Scary? Well it should be. You are at a crossroads. Will you be making the choice of getting back into the connection and the path you chose before you were born?
Here are a few questions that you can begin using for yourself to start the process of learning how you have been making choices without taking the time to evaluate why you would make the choice you are considering.
When you are learning something new about yourself, do you take the time to study the old and the new of you? This is a time and space where you will become most creative. As that excitement of learning something wonderful about yourself is swirling around you in the most glorious way.
