“Your strongest muscle and worst enemy is your mind. Train it well.” – Anonymous
The pull, as we go through life,…
is to break it down into duality: fact or fiction, real or imagined, matter or mind.
For sure, the ingrained way to go is with the former.
A lot of folks poo poo the idea of impacting circumstances, conditions, what you attract, present-day “reality” and even the past with the mind. For them, what is, is. If I see it, I’ll believe it.
However, more and more pragmatic scientists and engineers, much less those in the healing or spiritual professions, are proving that there’s something outside of the hard-and-fast “facts” going on. They’re demonstrating that, if I believe it, I’ll see it.
And, over the years, there have been a lot of spokes developed under different names and processes which all lead to the hub of that wheel called co-created reality.
Without espousing any particular spoke, I do encourage the dabbling in and with these various paths to the same end: having a guided, joint, or collaborative say in the way life is going to go.
When the fear of a sudden career shift, an unexpected business challenge, or an unwelcome virus shows up on your doorstep…sure, deal with the “real,” but also take some time to create in the realm of the mind/imagination.
Where would you like things to go? What would it feel like when things go that way? Just how long can you allow yourself to feel that way right now?
Setting yourself up with a consciously designed inner game can only help your outer game. What better to march forth with?
Got a career change, business or personal game to design internally before externally? Schedule a session here for not only the practical steps but the “inside job” support.
Got mind over matter?
