Iheard this from my coach this morning - 'you are always only one thought away from changing your life!' She's right, of course. But how do I bridge the gap between where I am and the one thought that will change my life??
What is that one thought and why is it so elusive? Has my life changed since this morning, when it entered my awareness? That one thought has been circulating...and continues on the spinning merry-go-round of my mind.
I know where I am - stuck, in an old pattern. I know where I want to be - free from that old pattern. Simple enough. But I can't quite seem to get my leg across from standing in stuck to standing in free - where is that darn thought
that will take me there?
Maybe it's the other way around. Maybe I'm already there, and it's the thought that doesn't let me see it, or in this case, the series of thoughts, that keep obscuring my view. Those are the thoughts that say 'too risky,' 'back up!' and 'careful, you might just get what you want.' These thoughts remind me of some deep belief that this place is not safe - too open, too free, too completely unhindered and alive...too good to be true. Wait, that's it! I've found it - the thought that acts like a straight-jacket, that sinks my foot in the mud of stuckness - TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE.
I am one thought away from changing my life - and the new thought is...TOO FREE TO CARE...how about you? What one thought would change your life today?
Greetings! The arrival of autumn and the hint of a chill in the air reminded me that it was time for another seasonal newsletter! Seasons change from one day to the next in the south, it seems like we were just sweating our way through the Indian Summer...
The turning and falling of leaves brings a theme of letting go of the past and clearing the way for future growth. Exploring this theme from the perspectives of Mindfulness, Coaching and Energy Medicine led to some interesting overlaps and distinctly separate insights. At the link below you'll find my latest newsletter with three takes on the theme of 'Letting Go.' In it, you'll find pratical advice on approaching this topic from the perspectives of Mindfulness, Coaching and Energy Medicine, as well as exercises to try yourself.
Don't forget to savor the good things that the year has brought you before you move into winter hibernation and preparation for the new spring!
