Something magical happens when you're free from your mind chatter and completely present with the person you are with..
Last weekend I went to complete another module with Animas Coaching, which was about presence.
We had an exercise where we were with a person while they talked for straight 10 mins. No questions, reactions, nothing. Just listening and allowing that person to be, say anything they want.
The person I was observing threw out everything she had in her mind, vulnerably telling her thoughts, feelings, fears, beliefs and hopes.
It got to a point where she tired herself out of her ego and saw the answer herself. Literally guided herself to her answer..
I saw this happening when I was doing 12 weeks 'Artist's Way' program, Julia Cameron's book where you have to write 3 pages every day. For me, in the beginning, the first 2 pages were pure mind. Totally unrelated sentences stacking next to each other, almost a vomit of the mind. Last page would be the truth, what I'd love to do, my gifts, dreams etc. Thank God i don't have to write 3 pages of that to get to the truth now 😂
It was amazing to see that happening right then and there, shifting in 10 mins..
It's about witnessing your own pain. It can be painful to do but once the thoughts, beliefs, emotions are seen by you, once they're witnessed and named what they are, they loose their power.. The pain is gone. Not looking at them straight in the face creates even more pain than the pain itself.
It's about seeing them and not getting carried away. They are just concepts, not the truth.
The truth is..
No matter what our past is,
No matter how scared we are or
No matter how we want to control the outcome..
We can be anything we want to be in any given moment..
That is the ultimate freedom 😉💛
