Listen. Because listening’s important:
Hi and welcome to the Re-Enchant Your Life reminder.
Your sacred pause in the day where you’re encouraged to take a moment to stop and tune into your inner wisdom and become present, so that you can reconnect to your personal power and confidently embrace who you’re becoming, as you Re-Enchant Your life and create the change you truly desire.
Today you’re being reminded to respond with awareness.
To respond to life consciously, and not through emotional habits and learned behaviour.
Often when a situation occurs, you respond to them the way you always have.
Responding in a particular way may have been appropriate in the past, but how often do you stop to ask if the response is still appropriate today.
We can often learn our emotional responses as children, either as a way to get what we wanted or to avoid something we didn’t. Or they can be a learned behaviour as we watched how our own parents or caregivers behaved in certain situations.
These responses may not be appropriate or even healthy responses for you today.
Today you have more experience, knowledge and resources to draw upon than you did when you were a child.
So, take a moment and make sure that you respond consciously, and in a way that supports you and who you’re becoming.
In this very moment, pause, and take a breath. As you allow yourself to become conscious of any outdated and habitual responses.
Today’s SHEro Action:
Today’s SHEro action is to pay attention to how you respond, especially to emotive topics such as money and love.
Think about your beliefs and behaviours around these topics and consider if they are even yours, or have you just been repeating what you’ve learnt, or are you doing what you have always done?
Are your responses, conscious and considered, are they made from a place of awareness or are they default patterns that you unconsciously fall into?
Pause, and take a breath. As you ask yourself “Is this mine?”
“I consciously choose how I respond to situations”
I’ll see you tomorrow for your daily reminder to Re-Enchant Your Life with me, Rebecca-Anuwen,
In the meantime, enjoy responding consciously and in a way that supports you on Your SHEro’s Journey!
I think one of the most powerful questions that you can ask yourself is simply ‘is this mine?’
The question itself is powerful.
But it’s power also lies in the fact that when you find yourself about to respond, you take a moment to pause and check-in with yourself.
This moment to pause is a valuable way of bringing awareness to a situation.
The way you’re about to respond, is that how you really want to respond?
Is that what you really believe?
Is it really worth the consequences of your words and actions?
The answer could remain ‘Yes’, and that’s valuable information, because as you move forward, you do so, aligned and sure of your action.
If the answer is ‘No’, that’s valuable too, as it may well have saved you lots of hurt, drama and hard feelings.
Take a moment to check in with your beliefs, are they yours, or are they what you think you should believe?
Taking a moment to respond with awareness, allows you to make powerfully aligned decisions, and take clear and confident action.
And it only takes a moment to ask the question ‘is this mine?’
