I smile now when I look back at how fatalistic I was.
I have a lot of love and compassion for my younger self. Back then I didn’t realise how I was unwittingly participating in creating my situation.
Once we become aware of our thoughts and emotional patterns, our beliefs and attitude, we can choose whether to keep them or change them. Easy said, sometimes harder to do.
By building our awareness, bringing our automatic patterns into the light and into the conscious mind, we can begin to create positive changes.
It helps to get to know the forces within that rule us. To view those forces with love, and curiosity. You don’t have to wait to look back with amusement and affection at your younger self. You can be that detached observer of your patterns right now. This will help you when you are facing your difficult times.
Whatever area of your life you want to focus on, (such as a dysfunctional relationship) you will find the keys within the vast territory of your unconscious mind. Identifying and understanding this can guide you to dissolve the patterns that have lead you towards the actions that created the very situation you do not want.
By following your inner wisdom, you can work towards creating new thought patterns that will bring positive changes into your life.
You don't have to wait until life forces you out on a limb or things fall apart. What area of your life is creating the most pressing issues for you right now? Is it your relationship, work, living space, spirituality, emotional health, physical health, family or friends, finances, self worth, assertiveness ability or self care?
