SO, how do we learn to take care of ourselves from a loving place, the core, rather than coming from a place of competition or trying to be like the Jones or fit in? How do we approach our dreams, our goals, our desires, from a grounded, centered place?
I explore this in my Blog Articles in a 3 part series about how each of the following play an important role in approaching our goals from love. Below, specifically, how Core Desired Feelings and an Empowering Context can help us.
I think it has to do with the CDF I talked about a couple of weeks ago, so tuning into those feelings we desire in the end goal WHILE we are out to reach the goal. Recapping, one exercise to do is to imagine that you’ve reached the goal you’re looking to achieve. Once you have that, what is the feeling you have in your body? Perhaps it’s freedom, joy, connectivity. SO, having that feeling, creating goals that feed those feelings you would have at your end goal—now. So, maybe going out dancing or roller-skating would help me tune into those feelings. So I do that. And, from that space of doing that, I might say—well, what’s next?? What keeps me feeling connected, joyful, and free? Not abandoning myself like others may have before.
But, truly, more than about DOING anything…it’s about staying connected to an empowering context. To CHOOSE doing things, rather than feeling obliged. Remembering we chose them and are powerful, and truly ARE free to choose perfectly freely again. That way, we VALUE what we have, our choices, OR, we make a different choice and do something else. But we don’t stay in a “stuck”, powerless place of complaining, for example.
The Arts are a powerful way to help us get connected to choice. We can make choices at any given moment when we are given a play script or a monologue, for example. The way one actor interprets things is TOTALLY different from how another actor approaches the SAME, exact words and gestures. We can get such a different flavor from the energy he/she puts behind it.
