In the Flow with Healing Waters
You are always making choices. Even when you choose to do nothing, that itself is a choice.
- Go to work or call in sick, it is a choice
- Eat healthy or not, it is a choice
- Drink water or soda, it is a choice
- Walk, Run, workout or not, it is a choice
- Hold on to anger or forgive, it is a choice
- Decide to have a conversation or do not talk, it is a choice
- Like your co-workers or let them drive you crazy, it is a choice
- Have a drink with alcohol or drink coffee, it is a choice
- Go for a drive or stay home, it is a choice
- Take this class or that class, it is a choice
No matter what you do- you are making a choice.
Everyday, and moment to moment you are continuously making choices.
Remember last week’s blog? Susan suggested, “own your pattern, don’t let your pattern own you.”
When you begin to understand first that you have a pattern and second you are staying in that pattern, this is when you can begin to shift and change out of it.
Like Susan said last week, oftentimes we hang on and stay in the pattern, you do this for a number of different reasons. The reason really isn’t the issue.
The issue is you choose to continue the pattern that no longer serves you.
How long do you want to repeat your pattern?
Notice how you are in that moment, do you like the feeling? (it is a choice)
What do you do when you no longer wish to repeat it?
It is helpful to pause, step back, take a moment, breathe and make the choice to continue in the old pattern or change.
Only at that moment can you alter the course of action.
Stay in that old pattern, or shift and create a new outcome.
IT IS A CHOICE!
Did you know that meditation helps you become aware of your patterns so you can make different choices? Sitting and calming the busyness of your mind allows you to see things differently and make different choices.
At HWHC we have noticed clients have more success with meditation with a bit of background and the understanding of WHY it is important and HOW to meditate.
Here is a free meditation that helps you calm the mind.
It uses the breath to calm the mind and emotions.
We call it the “Inner Breath”
