3rd Installment of A to the Power of 8™
My message to you is: Each one of us can do something about it, not only in terms of dire environmental, economic or health issues affecting the world today, although that would definitely help. But more fundamentally, in terms of preparing for and creating a future world, a more enlightened world inhabited by a much more evolved race of human beings.
We have forgotten to focus on the “being” part of ourselves, and have instead placed such importance on doing, on activity instead of stillness. How can we know ourselves, if we don’t have enough time to be with ourselves? How can we hear what the wisest and most powerful part of ourselves is saying to us, if we are not even comfortable with silence let alone quiet enough to listen beyond the mental noise?
Do we even know that there is a part of ourselves that is all-wise and all-powerful? Are we simply so used to feeling inadequate in so many areas of our lives, always judging ourselves, always feeling like we are just getting by, always feeling like we are really not good enough, even if we do our best to motivate ourselves on one hand and be in huge denial on the other hand?
Not only do we not have much self awareness, we are also not taught to be really honest with ourselves in a loving and non-judgmental way. Instead, it has been drummed into most of us in so many subtle and direct ways that we are not good enough.
How can the majority then have the courage to look inwards? We are terrified of what we might find out, if we did so. Already, we feel so poorly about ourselves. Why would we want to take a good look at who we are, with a magnifying glass or worse yet, in front of other people?
Because WE MUST! But in a loving and non-judgmental way. That is how we do it in our coaching programs, both for individuals and for organizations. That is the only way you must do it for yourself. What we do is show you how perfect, how great, how abundant you already are. And this is not make-believe. It is entirely true. We can show you how in our Abundance Mastery™ programs, on a one-on-one basis or in our workshops; as well as in our corporate coaching programs.
You will be so relieved and so pleasantly surprised, even exhilarated in some cases as to what you discover about yourself!
We show all our clients how they can develop the new habit of being kind and loving to themselves, of recognizing their own Greatness; and thereby do the same for others. Can you imagine if the whole world did that, what a different planet this would be to live on? You might not want to die at age 80 then! You might love life so much that you want to live on, to contribute hugely and have a most fulfilling and very full life!!
For now, let me give you as much as possible through this vehicle, so that you can at least have a taste of it and start the process yourself.
Let’s continue with talking about increasing our awareness, beginning with self awareness and developing a heightened awareness of what’s going on within and around us. Most of us don’t have an awareness of what’s going on in our own bodies, don’t eat with awareness, are unaware of what’s truly happening in our relationships and our lives. Also, the majority of us are not aware of our own emotions and why they are there, let alone how to master our emotional states and create our destinies.
We are mostly unaware of what’s driving us, of the underlying fears that affect our decisions, choices and actions. We may be fortunate enough to have some idea of what we are feeling and why, but we often don’t really know where they are emanating from and why. Therefore, we usually blame external circumstances and others for emotions we don’t like experiencing.
The next installment of this article on A to the Power of 8™ is entitled “Masters of Our Internal States & Lives” and will introduce the 8 A’s in our self-coaching process.
