It has become much more up close and personal these latter few days here, plus I have more time and timelessness on my hands to ponder life and the amazingness of human nature and our energy dynamics.
On my retreats with clients I often use one of my favourite analogies to explain this fascinating experience of people that can have very difference ways of perceiving life and the world around them.
It is like tuning into different radio stations at a certain Megahertz / Frequencies. Each radio stations has its own perspectives, story lines, music styles, adverts, hosts, bias, preferences and presumptions etc
Each radio station and its listeners believe that there radio station is the best one of all and shares the greatest source and quality of communications , information , entertainment and over all valuable content for its listeners.
We may have been born into a family, a culture, a religion, a education that got us tuned into a certain radio station on a certain frequency of communications. Those communications established certain attitudes, beliefs, preferences, likes and dislikes, presumptions, expectations, bias, judgements and so on . . .
Then what if something happened that shifted us off that radio station one day and we some how found ourself tuning into another radio station we had never heard of and that seem to speak in a different language and play different kinds of music that inspired difference kinds of rhythms and dance.
A radio station whose hosts spoke in a language that at first seem so far fetched, outrageous and surreal ? Yet it also felt exciting and brought you to a feeling of such aliveness and exhilaration within you like you had not felt for such a long time that you had forgotten it even existed.
What if your mental mind told you ' it seem to good to be true , don't be silly, go back to what you know and all the people you know listen to ' . However in that moment you notice that your heart and body responded to the new radio station and its messages and signals in a way that felt so good and so aligned as if somewhere deeper within you did recognise that it could be possible.
What would you do ? Would you settle for the old radio station and regular life listening to the same old news, stories, music that was well known to you ? However with this choice over the coming days, weeks and months you would start to notice that it left you feeling more dulled down, uninspired, unmotivated , disconnected, dispassionate, doubtful , disenchanted, negative, isolated, afraid and pressurised into a daily survival mode of living.
OR would you feel compelled to step out of your comfort zone and do what ever you could to keep tuning more and more into the new exciting Radio station you discovered that broadcasted at a slightly different frequency. A radio station that you would notice over the coming days, weeks and months to ignite your imagination with creative new thoughts, life affirmative self esteem , information that expanded your heart with hopes and dreams and blissful connected feelings of LOVE and Kindness and Generosity of Spirt. A radio station that resurrected your inner connections to something wonderful, a more peaceful way of being in the world and reminded you to embrace your humanity, body and innate goodness and living in harmony with nature, plants, animals and your surrounding environments.
On this new radio station they talk about an abundant resourceful world and universe. They hosts are upbeat and love to remind you of your innate worthiness and inner potential to focus upon and create the life, body, finances, home, travel, adventures and relationships experiences that you really wanted ?
However this radio station also reminds you that with these great freedoms, it would require you to be willing to take back your responsibility for your energy by directing your thoughts and feelings into what you want to create and off of what you do not want to create once you became aware and acknowledge them.
Also it would require you to give up the idea that you are a victim of your circumstances and remember that all things, inventions, buildings and life circumstances first got started in the imagination. Hence new life circumstances can be imagined for yourself and the world you wish to live in. You would have to develop great self worth, self care and self value so that you will accept that you are worthy beyond question or doubts to receive what your heart and soul truly desires NOW. You would have to let go of any egoic control issues and trust in a friendly life and a universal physics where what you focus on and align your thoughts, feelings and energy with becomes your reality experience.
Then once that was understood and put into practice daily , all that remains is to your commitment to follow your highest joy each day to the best of your abilities and release any attachment to outcomes, replace 'needing to know outcomes' with 'trust and allowing'.
Be open to it turning out in surprising and even more delightful ways that you had imagined and presenting you with opportunities you may never have guessed would be on the horizons. There may be some twists and turns on the adventure, so pausing from time to time to self reflect and remove any obstacles in your way is helpful. Patience is a virtue and asking for support along the way as you fully and wholeheartedly build up more and more confidence to keep saying YESSS to the epic and amazing journey unfolding for you to embrace, evolve and experience more and more of your potentials waiting to be realised and enjoyed.
What would you choose ?
