What Experience Will You Create in 2021?
Astrologers are calling 2021 the Wild Card year; there will be lots of wild cards, which means anything can happen, and what does happen will probably surprise you. If you don’t think something’s possible, it more than likely is, which can be good and bad. I prefer to think about it in terms of being good. With that in mind, it is important to pay special attention to what we are thinking as challenges will continue and be different. We have a choice in harnessing our ability to surrender, let go, build our inner trust muscle, or continue to fight against ourselves and the changes at hand.
I believe as we navigate this intuition age, we are being asked to unlearn the old ways of doing things and learn new ways of being and doing. We need to learn to let go of what no longer serves us, such as physical items, relationships, behaviors and ways of thinking. As we let go, there is an opportunity to embrace a new way of being and learning.
Not only will we be doing this with our environment, work, home, and relationships, we will be doing this with our own brain and physiology. It is a great opportunity to work with our thoughts and behaviors in a way that supports us. It is my belief that the old paradigm of having to work hard to get anything done won’t work anymore. We now have access to so much more of our capacity when we use our intuition and whole being; not just what the external world says we should do. What kind of thoughts and ways of being support who we are?
So much of the old paradigm was about working hard, suffering, and doing hard work to create results. This new paradigm is about doing what is easy and in flow. I refer to it as pushing a boulder up a hill (the old paradigm) or floating on the river downstream (the new paradigm). What this means is making choices that feel easy, that feel right for you, that inspire you, and that give you energy. It means owning what is resonating in you. Does that mean we won’t be working hard? Not at all. We will have to focus on what we want, and use our brain and thinking in a new way. Because we are learning a new way of being and thinking, it will take commitment and energy, and it will feel hard until we lay the new pattern in our brain.
In order to create a new reality, we have to first work to create it in our body and mind, which makes it easier to live in that new way in the midst of the change that is outside of us. There are various tools and teachers to support us through the process: David Hawkins book, Letting Go; Joe Dispenza’s work in rewiring your brain; any meditation or contemplation practice that brings your attention inward, such as yoga and martial arts. There are several teachers, programs, and body practices that can help.
What is calling you? Are you listening to it and acting on it?
I am currently studying David Hawkins book Letting Go by taking each chapter and discussing it with a friend to help integrate the content to an even greater degree. I am also taking Joe Dispenza’s class with 3 friends and learning to integrate this new way of thinking and being. Working in a group is powerful for me because it allows me to fully integrate what I am learning and hear other people’s perspectives, in addition to challenging me to think and look at things and ways of being from a different perspective.
What helps you integrate a new way of being and thinking?
We have choice in everything we do, and we have been through immense change this last year at every level of our being and life. Changes will continue, so what support do you need to learn how to float downstream in the midst of all this change? If this resonates with you, I invite you to check out my course, The Art of Being In the Flow. This will be a small group with a maximum of 10 people, and we will be learning practices that help us stay in flow.
The other course I am offering is for anyone interested in building a Career Coaching practice – click here to learn more.
This course is designed for people (1) who are already a coach and want to add career coaching to their services and (2) for those that want to develop a Career Coaching practice and learn how to career coach.
Both courses will develop in you practices that support the part of yourself that wants to push the rock up hill in making the transition to floating downstream and enjoying the ride. These are Inner Wisdom Groups to help people through whatever challenges they are confronted with, to develop and trust their own inner wisdom, and how to best navigate it in a place of ease instead of effort.
My hope is that we choose to float downstream and experience a state of being that is of ease and joy in the midst of the change.
