“We are what we think,
All that we are arises in our thoughts,
With our thought we make our world” The Buddha
It is a common thread from science to spirituality that our thoughts and feelings are so powerful that we can manifest our hearts desires. In order to make our desires manifest and be sustainable, we need to activate all senses as we rehearse our desired future.
How we direct our thoughts is the key. Let us begin by aligning with the seasons.
Moving into the season of autumn- a contracting energy of completion, a time of vision and focus – it is the perfect time to create our visions to rehearse our future. We begin connecting to our subconscious redirecting our thoughts. We can choose how we respond to what we feel; we can choose how we respond to what we notice.
First we become aware.
Second we notice.
Third we choose.
We may not control all of the things that happen in our life, but we do control how we choose to respond. Let’s move from reacting to responding. Embrace the energy of this time of focus and vision. Connect to the clarity of mind this autumn season offers.
Our vision is clear; we are aware without distraction, notice what we feel.
Take a breath, notice the feeling, redirect a feeling of chaos or distraction to a feeling of focus, peace and calm. Here is a simple method to begin, practice focusing on your breath.
Take deep a breath in through your nose; follow your breath as it comes into your body, as it fills up your chest, your abdomen. Feel your body expanding. Smile.
As you exhale through your mouth, follow your breath as if leaves your body, relaxing into yourself, releasing. Smile.
Notice how you feel at that moment. This is just the beginning.
Stay tuned for our next step, how we can continue to redirect, tools we can use to create our visions to rehearse our future.
