A New Way of Being
I open myself to a new way of being by releasing my old habitual way of thinking.
Do you find that you wish to orchestrate change in your life, yet you continually fall back into your old, safe and comfortable way of doing things? Do you complain that it is too hard to change who you are?
Are you so desirous of transformation that you are willing to commit to consistently producing small actions in order to elicit the desired result?
I read a wonderful book by Baron Baptiste called “Being of Power.” It had fantastic intentional phrases that caused you to focus upon what you do want rather than what it is you are trying to change. Generally, when you wish to modify the way you interact with others in your life or change the way you view your life experience, we seem to come across blocks that hinder our progress. These blocks are the old programmes that have been created in your mind and made to seem so real that you feel powerless to replace them.
When you decide upon an intention, not just an affirmation and you work towards becoming what you intend every single day, you WILL succeed in that change. For example, if you wish to have greater connections in your life, in Baron Baptiste's book the intentional phrase would be, “My new way of being is of connection.”
You could of course add any attribute that you want as greater expansion in your life at the end of the above phrase such as “My new way of being is of compassion or adventure or courage.” It could be anything that you wish to cultivate more of in your life.
When you first utter the phrase, you will feel the resistance in your body, say a clenching in your stomach or tightness in the chest, yet keep repeating it often and recognise when opportunities present themselves for you to act from this new way of being. You will be surprised by the shift that you have and how the practice of repeating the phrase will create a new way of focus and ultimate change in your experience.
Just for today, think about an attribute you wish to change about yourself and use the phrase above, repeating it regularly to help you succeed in making that change. You will be so empowered by the success this brings; it will encourage you to create even more expansion in your life.
Have a powerful weekend.
