Introduction to Getting Out of Your Own Way
As soon as we move our attention inward, away from the outer world where all the triggers are that help produce our stress, we begin the process of changing our responses to those stressors. They are usually unconscious. The longer we focus outside of ourselves in an attempt to manipulate people, circumstances, or the environment where we work and live, the longer we will feel the stress within us and the worse it will become. How long are we going to chase our tails, and stop paddling upstream?
Your Breath is the Key
Your breath is the key that unlocks the door to change, but we fear change, and that is reflected in our breathing. Catch 22!
The real issue is an inner one of resistance and a belief that change has to be hard. But if we could for a moment, not be so afraid, we could let it happen. It never happens faster than we can handle it, when we can do it with awareness and with breath.
We can learn to fear change less!
Energy follows thought. Where your attention goes is where your energy will go. So, change takes a long time, because when it happens for real, it happens at the mental and emotional levels before it happens at the physical level, and certainly at all those levels before it manifests outwardly in our lives for the world to see. It is a gradual process. We can learn to fear it less!
Moving consciousness to the Observer
The day long Enlightened Living Seminar is specifically designed to enable you to learn to become a lover of personal change by learning to be an allowing, observer of the process (of your own life), by moving to your centre (in the heart), using the breath, and allowing the process to happen the way it wants to for you. You will begin to live with less stress, more grace, calm, and a feeling of being connected to your heart centre. The nature of this centre is one of “unconditional love”. By going to this place of awareness, you begin to build into your being feelings of being “cared for” by your Self.
It is easy. It is a surrender.
The opportunity for change lies in surrendering to your breath, to your Self, and to the present moment, where all change occurs… one breath, one moment, one step at a time, gradually, not with force, but with love. The result is a bridge to your Self and the effect of that is a reduction of fear based feelings at a personality – self level.
