Oftentimes we forget how many choices we make in a single day.
Some very insignificant, and some much bigger.
Some out of habit, and some out of willingness to try something new for once.
Some dictated by conditioning, and some dictated by passion.
Some out of fear, some out of love.
I just wanted to sit still for a minute to remind you of those choices. Yesterday I was again suffering from headaches, so the choices I made were dictated by my physical state. Which is important, as it seems that I am not listening to myself enough, so the headaches are my body’s way of saying stop!!! Yesterday I listened, and stopped. But I also know from myself that, had I not had such a strong signal I would have just gone on forever… Because of my own conditioning, always doing more, more, more, and always in the “doing”… instead of relaxing and not feeling guilty for relaxing…. I know I still have a lot to learn! Don’t we all have? 😉
The first thing I noticed is that I am now more aware of those moments when I make choices.
Then, when I make them, I ask myself questions like: What is really important here and now? Can that wait? Will I miss it if I don’t do it?
But also questions like: Why am I choosing for this?
And: What would my higher self do?
I believe those last 2 are really important ones, which can help you especially when you find those choices difficult to make. Because those questions can also help you detect what’s left of your conditioning, what it is that you haven’t let go off yet, what it is that you still do because you always did it like that, or because you mum did it that way etc. Isn’t it nice from time to time to do something different than usual? (and to get a different result ;-))
So my advice for this week would be to become more aware of the choices you have in your everyday life, and of the choices you make and why J.
Let me know how this is going for you!
I wish you a wonderful week!
Much love, Madeleine
