Touching in with the heart of pain is incredibly powerful and necessary work. But we – as a healing society – have a habit of poking the bear sometimes… treating the site of pain over and over until we can’t see past it. What if you could change your pain, your heartache, your habits with less effort?
Think of a water circling a drain:
It’s really hard to catch things as they exit the bottom of the funnel — it’s moving fast and spinning hard. We can, however, effect outcomes by playing in the periphery.
You could make massive changes to what’s showing up in your life and body by simply inserting or removing things that are moving more slowly, are easier to see, and less stressful to address.
- Eat a simple breakfast so that you have more energy to address the stress at work
- Put a red filter on your screens to keep your eyes (and therefore spine!) happier
- Turn on a song you love during your drive home so you are a nicer person to your partner
- Set alarms on your phone so you don’t have to remember things
