this booster is from my last eZine… Hope you find some gold in it!
Passion and purpose. When these are missing life loses its meaning.Purpose may be difficult to find but it will find us – when we become passionate about life. This booster helps you to explore how you can develop more passion in your relationships and your life. Something we all want!
This will be a bit of a process… You might like to grab a pen and paper, a cup of tea and get comfy.
First think about times you feel passion. This may be while you are being creative, at work, with your kids, while being intimate with your partner, etc. Identify a passionate time for you.
Now identify your most dispassionate or lost place in your life. Consider some of the negative things you tell yourself. Perhaps I should be doing something else (ie this is the wrong place for me) or I don’t know what to do next (Ie I feel lost and have no direction) or I should do this next (Ie according to someone else, society or my culture I have to do X next), etc. Have a listen to all the negative and limiting language you use, much of it to try to keep you keeping on or taking the next step you think you SHOULD take.
Next imagine if you used those same phrases at your passionate time. If you tried to tell yourself what you should be doing next while playing with the kids, second guessing your next move in your next intimate encounter, or feeling hopeless and lost while involved in creating something. It just would not work. Same as in that part of your life.
Your challenge? Recognize the limits you put on yourself through language and practice reframing those negative phrases. Eg it is absolutely fine to be doing this right now or I will know what to do next when the time is right or Who knows what the next thing is to do, I will open myself up and just see.
PS if the old patterns are too hard to break come in for a session, let’s see what blocks we can break!
