What was once unable to be seen can now be envisioned. What was once inconceivable is now credible and possible. One shift in perception has the ability to instantly begin to turn the wheels of transformation.
Everything on the outside is a reflection of the inside.
As you become aware of the inside, the outside transforms.
As a human being, you were born with the capacity to feel and yet this resource is highly under-rated and enormously under-used. Your ability to feel the energy of an issue, decision, strategy, communication, relationship, goal and idea allows you to get present with the ‘inside’ and determine whether it is fuelled by fear, limitation and reaction or true, expansive and intutive opportunity. As you become present, your ability to sense energy acts like your own internal barometer for intuitive truth. Being resourced with such quality information enables you to shift your perception, make very clear decisions and experience a truly fulfilling life.
If you are seeking change, it’s not enough to think it through, that is, to decide with your mind to let go of a stressful and unfulfilling business, relationship, financial circumstance, habit etc and decide with your mind to take on a new business, relationship, financial commitment, way of being etc. If you think it through only, you are resourced solely from your rational mind and you may feel hopeful and pumped at the start, but sooner than later, you’ll get more of the same.
You need to emotionally invest yourself by getting present with what’s going on underneath the veil of reality. You won’t be weak. You won’t be wasting time and being unproductive. Instead you’ll actually experience a change in your internal and external reality that’s more graceful than what you had imagined.
Part of my vision is that one day soon, schools, businesses, governments and families will support people in not just being Great Thinkers but Great Feelers too. I’m not talking about people being at the mercy of their emotions because that’s just behaving in reaction, like young children do really well and what adults do in a more sophisticated way. It’s quite the opposite. If people have the skill and intelligence to know what to do with their thoughts and emotions, they will be self-directed and self-aware. They will be personally responsible. They will lead themselves. The result will be that much less time and energy will be spent on managing peoples’ performance and wasting time politicking and a massive decrease in physical and mental health issues, family crisis, conflict, disillusionment and unhappiness will be seen. In other words, people will be happy and successful, authentically and honestly expressing themselves in their work, relationships and personal interests. This fruitful energy will be felt by others who will also want some of that.
For the great majority, the modus operandi has been thinking and doing. The tide is now turning. Both the Harvard Business School and Europe’s leading business school, INSEAD, have concluded from research that the two most effective business tools for twenty first century executives are meditation and intuition.
