Everyone can remember playing games as a kid, and some of these recollections are so powerful they shape our lives. One member of my extended family loved playing with dolls. Today, she is a highly respected senior children’s nurse in the UK.
We sometimes need to think outside the box of conventional stifling rules that we were bamboozled into accepting as the norm. Being a prisoner to your emotions is not the norm! Inside every one of us is a “Hero.” We just need a few pointers to give us a new direct experience.
First, we need an introduction to our real nature.
We need to stop whatever we are doing for a few seconds and notice what is present, what’s still obviously there?
Pure Awareness, Pure and Simple.
However, you get side-tracked by your emotions, and they seem to upset you, make you irritable.
SIMPLY DO NOTHING, feel the feelings, own them, notice you’re self-talk and again DO NOTHING.
You are learning how not to be reactive. Your emotions are a wonderful servant or a tyrannical master. That depends on you alone.
This exercise practiced regularly, will change the dynamic of your relationship from reactive to being authentically present at all times.
If you have any questions about difficult relationships, do let us know and we will try to help.
To the “Undivided Leader” in you.
