Hey everyone! I hope you are having a great start into the New Year of 2016! It has been a very busy month for me of traveling, learning and growing. I have had incredible conversations, forum meetings, retreats and connected with some amazing teachers and mentors.
After witnessing so many on the path of self-discovery and transformation, I have noticed there are developmental phases to personal growth that I would like to share with you.
The first phase is Self-Awareness.
Look around and ask yourself and ask: what role am I playing in the creation of my conditions, of my life?
Being aware of one’s responsibility in the creation of ones circumstances is key.
When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.
We begin to learn that the results in our life are not just random.
This is when new tools, teachers and experiences come into our life that help us wake up. We begin to start connecting the dots of our own life.
Positive usually attracts more positive. The energy you send out, returns to you. You listen closer to your intuition, to your inner voice and start noticing what you attract and how.
Plant your seeds: “Wouldn’t it be nice…? ” to be more patient, to move to a different country, to live a more simple lifestyle, to work less and love more?
Just sending out that energy with no attachment to outcome will create a different energetic vibration.
- Things always work our for me
- Things are always working out for me
- Things will come around
- The situation will work out
- This is happening for a reason. What is the gift of this situation?
can be helpful in the self-awareness process.
We also begin to understand that all of us on this human journey are here to learn, grow and remember who we really are. This is a time full of “ah-ha” moments – some which are exciting and some which are downright surprising.
- The second step is Integration
Once we are aware of our own responsibility in the creation of our circumstances, we can move into the stage Integration.
This is the longest phase because this is when we shift from knowing things to actually changing things. If you feel like you have a lot of information but things in your life are not shifting, welcome to the integration phase…there is some work for you to do.
When in comes to transformation awareness is not enough…you have to let go of your limiting beliefs and change your behaviors.
One of the most powerful ways to heal and break a pattern is when we are experiencing it.
This is a time when we drop our story and upgrade our programming. It is a time when we do the courageous emotional work to heal old issues so they no longer define us. It is a time when we take all the tools we have learned and actually use them, consistently!
Life will be constantly challenge you in this phase to see how you will respond differently and how you alter your perspective and move toward Self-acceptance.
