Do you sometimes feel like there is a lack of purpose in your life?
Does it seems like something is missing?
What is it that limits you from feeling connected and free?
You may feel sometimes that when you give your best it’s still not enough. The thing is, you are not doing anything wrong. You simply need to learn a bit more about the beliefs that impacts your thoughts, emotions and behaviours to make more conscious decisions.
When we are conscious, we have choice. Do you want the choice or want to be driven by patterned and conditioned habits?
We have all been hurt. No doubt about it. But, now, what do you choose? Do you wish to continue to repeat the same old ways of approaching things? How would you like it to be different?
This series will help you to become more conscious of how habits drive you in order to avoid suffering.
What would make you feel empowered and responsive? How can you drop being reactive and needing to be in control all the time?
I suggest we look closer, together.
Most of us run on patterns of ego protection. How can you actually let go and be vulnerable when all around you are messages that you are not enough, that you should be different, to keep busy all the time because there is so much to do? Moreover, when most people around you are also hurt and protecting themselves, these are not auspicious conditions to go deep or express vulnerability.
The fact is, to avoid hurt, we try to control everything. We try, in vain, to shape things around us so that we don’t feel the hurt. This process is sucking the energy out of you. This approach is no longer working, and you probably know it. You know that you need to look deeper, to the source of that anxiety.
This strategy of trying to control everything is not working. It’s too heavy. You feel confused, stressed out, victim or martyr in regards to how you feel and what it makes you do.
Stepping back for a moment
Have you connected with a sense of spaciousness/letting go today?
This is not a luxury. It is essential. This connection with the freedom that is always present in your being is what gives you the power to pursue your next step with enthusiasm and purpose. It is an essential foundation for you to feel content, energized and able to embrace your highest purpose and goals. It allows you to tap into an unlimited fountain of clear energy, available 24/7, for free.
What we’ll explore during the series :
- What the costs are of the protections we put around ourselves
- What control is and how it manifests in our lives
- Where the hurt is coming from and its impact on our relationship with ourselves, others, and our daily activities
- How to create a fresh and auspicious momentum in our lives through journaling and short meditations
- Guidance to re-direct our concentration towards empowering ourselves, through awareness, compassion, and loving-kindness put into practice.
