"...Change is to think GREATER than your environment, GREATER than your conditions and circumstances in your life."
- Dr. Joe Dispenza
When you woke up this morning, were you just going about your routine, doing the same thing, letting your external environment dictate what you were doing? Were you sleepwalking through life OR were you consciously aware, in the present moment, and in control of every movement and every thought?
Being present is not easy and it takes practice. We've been so conditioned in society to focus our attention outwardly, on a million different things, on what we "should" have, what we "should" do, etc. With all of this buzzing around in our minds, no wonder it's so hard for us to listen to what's really going on inside.
Yoga and meditation are two tools that can help you practice being more present in your daily life. It can help you get past the analytical mind that is constantly making you worried and stressed.
Once you're able to practice being more present, you'll be able to calm your mind. Once you can calm your mind and look within, you will be able to "think greater than your environment, greater than your condition and circumstances in life." You'll have more clarity on what your heart really desires and what its dreaming of. You can then allow yourself to actually FEEL what it would be like to accomplish this dream. Once you're able to truly envision the positive change in your life (maybe its your intention for more love, for more happiness, etc.) than your physical body will actually start BELIEVING that its in that experience. You will start to think and act in a new way. And while this is happening, neurological and chemical change is occurring in your mind and body. You are actually changing the fabric of you. You're rewiring your brain and your DNA. (Here's a TED video on this topic.)
The road to changing your state of being can be uncomfortable for most people, so they go back to their old ways and never allow themselves the opportunity to live a more fulfilling life. You have to really want it. And it takes practice, repetition and dedication.
But there's proof that it works! And more and more people are curing themselves of illnesses and changing their life for the better each day. I personally think this is fascinating. And with more people awakening, we can be in a better position to help change the world. I wish you well on your journey to change and reach out to me anytime if I can help and support you in any way.
