Change through focus & purposeful action

‘People with goals succeed because they know where they’re going.’ Earl Nightingale

Change begins with the ability to recognize it.

Recognition begins with courage to pause and focus on one’s experience.

Transformation is the willingness to explore how it could be different.

A personal focus on an inner question of  how the  experience could be different equals change.

Fear, pain, lethargy and withdrawal are debilitating. These feelings enable one’s ridgid patterns that create hopelessness and deepen their grip. These stuck patterns are limiting and very often unconscious behaviours that create the tone to how one experiences their day.  Successful transformation is possible through one’s willingness to connect to inner intention and corresponding outside actions.

Retraining focus of attention

Cultivating awareness of one’s actions in the moment begins with a intentional focus of observation prior to reactive responses.   Intentional observation that is inclusive of:

  • physical inner-action (experiencing sensory movements)
  • mental inner-thoughts (viewing thoughts without acting on them)
  • inner-feelings/emotions (being in sensations without acting on them)
  • environmental stimulus (sensing stimulus of surrounding influences)

Focusing one’s attention on sensing their action in real time is the true experience.  The truth of what is happening is lost when focus shifts away from simply observing the moment.  It becomes an opinion or a perspective based upon memory. 

  • shame & blame
  • right & wrong thinking
  • punishment & reward
  • hierarchy
  • denial of responsibility
  • demands
  • comparisons
  • moral judgements
  • diagnosis, or assessments
  • labelling
  • expectations

Like everyone in the world I wondered if my live interaction with students would come back to life

Getting set up for Functional Integration sessions (Feldenkrais Method of Somatic Education)

Like everyone in our recent reality seeing people in person had stopped or shifted to phone calls and zoom.  In the past few weeks as talk of  lifting the  restrictions began I had  doubt and uncertainty about how to move forward myself.  There was a  lingering question of whether anyone would come.  I wondered if there was a future.  All it took was a student to connect and inquire if I was seeing anyone yet or not.  They shared they would be willing to connect on-line yet expressed a preference to come in person.  Okay they will come, so now what?

Time to source out disposable face masks, gloves, a face shield, hand sanitizer, cleaners for disinfecting and new cleaning cloths.  Then set to work on the new appearance of the space.  Removing all extraneous objects, getting the steamer in to steam everything including the carpet.  Setting it up to walk through to experience how it could work.  This included changing shoes and having a specific pair just for that space and having disinfectant ready for spraying the soles of their shoes.  Walking through it it became apparent that I will know have to giving directions on how to enter into the office with me opening and closing doors to limit touching.  It’s a lot of extra work.  Going through it I found I was hot and sweating.

My appreciation grew for those in the care industry who have been working on the front lines.

After walking through this and recognizing it was doable I recognized this could be be totally integrated.  Then this same student inquired how much extra I would like to charge for the additional costs, etc.  I was thankful for this inquiry of thoughtfulness  My focus of attention was on the equipment and how to get ready, not the financial costs.  My thoughts go to how living and working through this appears to be affecting pretty much all of the primary nine life areas.  Getting serious about conscious safety at work increases the knowledge on how to be safer in my home life areas.  What ever I experience in either area, work or home, influences all of these:

  1. Wealth
  2. Fame
  3. Relationships
  4. Past
  5. Health
  6. Future
  7. Education
  8. Career
  9. Community

3 things I have learned from this experience

  1. It is doable.
  2. Extra precautions for cleanliness can be taken for the benefit of all.
  3. We can ask for and also be more considerate meeting the needs for valuing others and one-self.

Today is a good day to commit to this cycles goals. Find out why?

May 26, 2020 reduces down to an 8 in numerology. This number is considered to be the luckiest number and reflects setting goals and putting oneself on a path to achieving them.   Number 8’s energy in not under the spell of any outside influences.  It’s the energy of an achiever with good judgment, business sense and skill.  Success for number 8 is accomplishing set goals.

Today the moon is in the Crescent phase which is the action of committing to writing out one’s goals.  It is the transition from inner reflection to outside action.   As 8 lives for achieving and giving back today these two phases marry together well.
