What are you choosing to give your life to?
I wrote about this in a different way yesterday and that was a fecking great post, if I say so myself, go read it here if you missed it.
Today, I want to expand on the whole attitude/choices/decision making thing that makes a life.
Because most of us don’t even know we’re choosing the life we live. It simply happens, day by day, as though by stealth, through no fault/plan/mission of our own. We end up where we end up, without even knowing how we got here.* *wherever here is for you- insert lifestyle event/circumstance you’re not happy with.
*Here, when we’ve simply ended up there, through no self conscious awareness of options is usually not where we want to be. We want to be over there, or somewhere or anywhere else.
You know why you’ve ended up where you did? Same reason as me. As almost every human being on the planet ever.
Because your subconscious has a plan, it has a blueprint, a map, a model, architect drawings for exactly how your life is going to turn out for you. And its based on sh!t you didn’t get to choose for yourself!
It’s based on how you grew up, the lessons you learned from you early caregivers, parents, guardians, teachers and the society around you.
You have probably found yourself living a life not that dissimilar to your parents, to the majority of the people you went to school with, neighbours; everyone you had close familial/social/influential connection to.
And we don’t see it. That’s the beauty and the danger of this thing. We never see the myriad of tiny little choices that bring us to replicating the lives of those we grew up with. Until we get to where we feel we can’t go on because this was never what we wanted.
You wanted something more than that, right? Maybe you wanted to be you, to express who you are in your heart and soul, to bring to life that unique flavour that only you possess?
How do you overcome the subconscious programming when most of the time you don’t see it/feel it/ have any kind of awareness of it? Well, there are some great places to start, you’ll find loads in past articles on my blog, but I’d recommend this one first or maybe second after this one.
Awareness. You have to practice awareness. You fix who you want to be, the life you want to lead in your mind’s eye, you focus on the behaviour you want to express, the values and beliefs you want to embody and you step up into that.
Not like getting up on a stage and playing a role. NO! This may be the first time you’ve actually stepped up into being you, all of you.
Maybe, instead of seeing yourself as stepping up, seeing it as stepping forward out of a line up. All these other replicate versions of you, but not you. There’s only one you. (I hope the mannequin photo is now making sense! ;))
And you may embody all the other version of you too. Of course. They are also part of you, but when you are all together in one, you are greater than the sum of your parts.
Here’s where the reference to Spartacus in the title comes in. Don’t you love that movie, Kirk Douglas in his prime. Fabulous, although I have a feeling when I rewatch this at the weekend, which I now fully intend to do, I’ll imagine all the lead roles with women actors, because of course women can be epic freedom fighters and leaders too. Not that there’s anything wrong with noble masculine strength but that’s kinda been done – a lot!
Anyway, Spartacus – that famous scene when the different men jump up to claim the name.
It gave me goosebumps just remembering it and watching that clip – sooo good!
Well, every single part of you, the one who made the choice to stay small, hidden, to not step up and be all you can be, the one who’s afraid of rejection, the one who’s afraid to go for what you want because you might fail, the part that wonders if you’re worthy or good enough – They’re all you and ready to jump to their feet and claim to be who you are.
Just as the one who gets great ideas and wants to run down the street or jump on the sofa with enthusiasm is you. And the one who connects with people and circumstances and creates the synchronicity to make things happen for you is you. The part of you that’s ready to speak up and claim your life for you to live as you want and deserve. All you too.
They are simply parts of you though. Not all of you.
You combine them all and so much more. You are you!
There’s an easy way to get all those seemingly oppositional parts working towards your common goal. And the easiest way I know is hypnosis. Because in the hypnotic state you get to communicate directly with your subconscious mind, to see/feel/hear all those different parts of you, to recognise their origins, their very real concerns.
And then you can respectfully tell them you’ve got this, you know what you’re doing and it all going to work out great. You bring them on board with your vision, your purpose for your life, the goals and dreams you are determined to make happen. And why do they listen and get on board? Because you’re fucking Spartacus!
You are the whole. You’re the one who makes your life happen. Do it on purpose. Make a decision. Stop bumbling about unconsciously. Life will never be what you want it to be until you take control of your thinking.
PS. If you’ve been stuck, feeling like you’ve been living the same day over and over and its no fun anymore, if you’ve fought weight issues, depression, anxiety, addiction, or simply a feeling of general dissatisfaction with how your life is unfolding for you, and you feel like you’ve tried everything and nothing has worked. It’s natural to feel that a solution is almost impossible.
That’s part of what keeps the problem in place.
But real lasting change is possible.
Think how it would feel achieving your goals with far less resistance, whether it’s dropping excess weight, gaining freedom from depression and anxiety, being a rockstar in your business or career, or excelling in your personal relationships. You can do it, you have no fears about staying stuck and not moving forward anymore.
See yourself fully present and grounded, living with total fulfillment and satisfaction with how life is unfolding for you, with no regrets, as you carve your own path forward, moving forward always forward, no looking back .
