Last week I shared my course in finding quiet and peace in the busyness of living. I’m also in the process of creating a new course. This one is about perspective and providing tools to shift yours.
As with all my creative processes, I start with what I know, and then work through the various exercises myself to ensure they do what I’m claiming they can do; in this case, help you shift your perspective.
In the process of construction; I’m realizing my perspective is, at current, sorely out of whack. Moments of light, followed by moments of pressure and heaviness.
The ones of pressure and heaviness seem to be having the most lasting impact.
In using my tools, all of which are helpful and solid; I realized the single biggest and most profound perspective-shifting tool is choice.
I can choose to concentrate on the low balance in my bank account, or I can choose to concentrate on ways to shift it.
I can choose what I want to do with my time today and tomorrow, when I’m on the golf course, I can choose what I want that to feel like; even if the forecast says 59 degrees and thundershowers.
My attitude and personality can reflect the weather or it can add some sunshine to what might otherwise be a dreary day.
Choice implies that you have the freedom to make a decision. We all do, in every moment; even if we don’t feel like we have a choice or we don’t like our perceived choices.
Knowing what to choose however can be where things get tricky.
I watch my 9 -year-old deal with this a lot. She has a significant fear of missing out and can often be paralyzed by the choices in front of her.
From simple choices like what to wear to more complex choices like which job to take when you have competing offers, there’s a connecting element in all of it. That element is YOU.
Your personal choices and decisions are driven by your wants, needs and desires. The most powerful thing you can do is understand your personal why. The reason behind your wants needs and desires.
This is all exceptionally personal to you.
I also don’t believe you can just “think” your way through anything. Your job is to feel your way through and to do that, you need to get your whole body involved.
So today, at the encouragement of a few people who have been through this process and given it rave reviews; I’m launching another new product. This one is a one-time 1:1 session designed to help you understand how to read your own body so you can incorporate your entire self into your decision making.
It’s the single most powerful tool I can think of to help you sort through the noise and listen to the deeply infinite wisdom of your whole being.
A 1 hour session; with a bit of pre-work and a live follow up a few weeks later; it’s impossible for this technique not to affect your life, your joy, your health and your search for balance.
