Are you distracting yourself from choice?
Have you ever wondered or stopped yourself long enough to look at why you take actions that override what your body is asking for, or what you are desiring to create in life in general? I’ve been looking at that for a while in all areas of life and have found that distractions are one way we keep ourselves from being present with situations that may no longer work for us that we are not ready to deal with. Often in combination with having many balls in the air aka “super active” or “stressed” when we do not appear to have the space to stop, be/breathe or ask questions and instead [re]act. Do you catch yourself when you are in that mode?
So why do we procrastinate, and is that a way for us not to choose? Or is it that we are simply not ready? Or are we “waiting” for a message, feeling, answer or …? Still we make choices all the time, every day, on the fly and I wonder how many of those are on autopilot? And what if distractions are part of the expansion of our awareness? What if it’s just a fun game? And does is matter what we choose? And how much of the distractions or waiting game are not even our stuff that we are acting [out] on? YES! And that is the part that I find so hilarious! Either way, sooner or later, for me at least, I know I will get into the space of awareness and action.
I found Access Consciousness in 2011 after having spent most of my life exploring various modalities including some deep journeying on my own. I was fully aware of picking up other people’s thoughts, etc., I was not aware of how much of the thoughts were not even mine that I thought were, and that was very hilarious and liberating!
I have no regrets though, I’ve had a lot of fun exploring with amazing experiences. Having played with many different teachings I started becoming aware of how the messages ultimately had similarities yet with different packaging and teachings.
When I took the Landmark Forum many years ago I got the power of “the blank canvas” (removing all the stuff from your past that you carry into your future) and what it was like to live a life without mind chatter, making things significant and a lot more. The “blank canvas” was a super profound experience yet at that point in my life I didn’t know that most of the mind chatter or past drama wasn’t even mine to clear!
Now knowing that you have choice, separating the meaning of what actually is yours (about 2%!!), acting on what is yours and releasing the rest and ultimately having everything in life simply be “an interesting point of view”, or “blank canvas”, well that is both a very simple process and also something that takes ongoing practice to implement with infinite possibilities and choices available.
Life is filled with distractions and messages on what you are supposed to do. Very little communication is based on asking you to actually check in with you and ask what is true for you. A lot of programming, whether you listen to the news, watch a commercial or are part of groups where “this is the way to be, think or act” focus on what’s right or wrong. So what can one do? Could these distractions be part of us expanding on our awareness? So that we make a different choice next time?
What makes Access Consciousness (founded by Gary Douglas) so much fun [for me] is the ease and insignificance of it. You learn to ask questions that go way beyond agreement, and you understand that you have choice in each moment. (the classes are filled with laughter and fun) You learn to shift from operating from conclusions, what other people say/think into simply asking expansive questions that increase your awareness “Empowering people to know what they already know” is the tagline, and that is just the starting point.
Imagine not having to analyze, answer or go deep, and instead just asking open-ended, expansive questions, clearing the energy and shifting how you perceive whatever your question was all about? Imagine being able to allow people to be who they choose to be without having a point of view? And yes you also have choice in whether you would like to interact with that same person! Pretty radical huh?
What if you followed what is light and true for you instead of what’s heavy and not true for you? What if you included you in the equation? And knowing what is true for you could be different than it is for me? And what if asking questions could be fun and change your life with ease? And what if it’s not about answering the question!?
What kind of world could we create if everyone woke up and felt amazing? Are you ready to tap into the magic capacities of the being that you are? If you are looking for change and asking expansive questions sounds interesting to you, you may want to check out the book “Being You, Changing The World” with Dr. Dain Heer, or simply go to his website to explore further www.drdainheer.com.
Here are two fun and expansive questions for you: “What else is possible™?*” and “How does it get any better than this™?*” These are great questions to ask yourself no matter what situation and mood you may be in. It kind of shifts your focus into one of possibilities. Wanna try them out?
