You Can Choose Again

When you feel you “can’t,” what is your “ought to”?
We live in world of rules & shoulds, some we have adopted not being fully aware that we have done so. There are options to many of these unconsciously agreed upon rules.  There are options where we could make another choice.

Consider this day, where you feel stuck around some feeling of “I can’t have it, get it, do it, be it.”  Such a feeling often shows up in form of frustration, short lived, or repeatedly showing up.

What is that feeling like? How does it feel in your body? Where does it live in your body?  What is it like?  Does it have an image, a color, texture, or shape? 

You can choose again, even if it may feel that you can’t.

Begin with recognizing this feeling/image.  Emotions are the friends that turn your attention to this frustration, anger, or sadness energy that may be stuck. We are not our emotions.  Emotions are energy that can change when we get to the habits and narratives we have developed that keep repeating in us, we can’t have, can’t do, can’t be the person we want to be.

By sensing into your own body/mind wisdom, your “I can’ts” can turn into you becoming you, alive, engaged and changing as you choose again and again towards that self, your self, as only you know how to become.

Now, consider what stories you find yourself repeating about what you believe to be true about your life and your experiences.  Are they really true today, or are they from experiences long ago that keep showing up for some reason?

Identifying that “I can’t,” that felt sense holding in your body, doesn’t have to take a long time. Begin by locating that “stuck place” in your body.  Then, ask that “felt sense stuckness image” what it wants?  What does it need to feel free, to feel alive, to feel safe?

You have just begun to shift the stuckness by relating to it.

This inner, deeper knowing is available to everyone to feel alive and healthy.

Bring forward now a new narrative beginning with “I allow myself to….”  Fill in what that felt sense stuckness told you it needs.

I allow myself to learn, to know, to discover, to be myself; a person who is alive, feeling good. That’s what your body/mind knows it needs and wants at the most fundamental level. With this process you are listening into your body/mind wisdom and harmony. Congratulations!

Just-In-Time you are becoming you, one breath at a time. You are on your way to naming and claiming your own self-intention processes for bringing about a freedom to choose, a satisfaction of self-intended acts, meaningful and on-purpose to you.

You can choose again, allowing the ‘becoming’ of you.

With aliveness centering, I have discovered how health and quiet joy are the results. With PhD in communication from Union Institute and University, Bachelor of Music, Certification in Jin Shin Jyutsu, and as Minister, I offer over 40 years of coaching and consulting experience helping a wide range of professionals from CEOs, entrepreneurs, artists and individuals to realize their path to aliveness, fulfillment and meaning.

I bring 30 years of research in Organic, Living Processes, and Inherent Value Intelligence. To whatever profession, passion or pursuit, I accompany clients seeking to know themselves deeply, radically, to align their hearts/mind/body to experience a foundation of self trust. Of great influence are Robert S. Hartman and Norm F. Hirst who introduced Value Intelligence and it's primary role in how humans navigate their lives. I now add the work of Dr. Iain McGilchrist's expansive work on the Divided Brain and how we need to use reason, AND intuition, imagination and values in the creation of lives with aliveness, meaning and fulfillment. The work of Harrison Owen and his Open Space Technology reflect my thinking on open conversations, listening, self-direction and responsibility for creating what we want in organizations, groups, governing and culture.
Above all, the Divine in each living creature has wisdom, self-direction and purpose to be realized, shared and honored. I open to the Spirit of life-itself with each breath, allowing myself to know, listen into my felt-sense awareness to find right action, Just in Time as needed, one step at a time. The Sedona Method of feeling feelings, releasing what's holding, allows greatest and highest good to emerge as I do. Embodied knowing, listening and sensing the whole of myself and encouraging clients to 1st feel the feelings and know their humanness good, their embodied wisdom. This is aliveness, this is how it can be, Just in Time.
