Change is based on reflection: noticing what is going on
By paying exquiste attention change happens from the inside out. This makes behaviour change more effortless and forming new habits is self-driven and more natural. It means the changes you make are longer lasting as you come home to yourself.
Over the years I have been guided by:
Noticings of the eye
Inner and outer images and stories
What’s appearing on the page/phone
Light and dark energy moving through
Unfolding of each day and cycle
Body & Breath
Body listening and conscious breathing
Words and metaphors linked to thinking
Inner knowing that presents itself
Opening experiences offered by the world
Reflection is with a mirror: noticing creates outer happening
As well as the above systems giving you a mirror to yourself, a coach/facilitator can further support you especially when it comes to your blind spots: reflecting back observations that you might not notice yourself.
You cannot really know what today or tomorrow holds for you. Instead of continuously trying to figure out what will happen, which can blind you to what’s actually going on around you, give more attention to your experience as it occurs.
