In our 24/7 paradigm, most of us are overstimulated without even trying to be. The amount of noise, obstacles, emails, calls, traffic, conversations, requests and tasks we tend to each day can leave our nervous systems with little reserve.
We may not even realize how the dominant paradigm of competition in which the market motivators of fear, scarcity and urgency form the basis of information coming at us from all directions can impact our psyches.
Having kept our wits about us and put our best foot forward throughout the day we come home in the evening, head into the weekend or on that hard earned vacation at our wit’s end.
Ready to check-out when what would benefit us most is to check-in, we may find ourselves reacting rather than responding as we relate to those we love, which is often my motivation to dive into self-inquiry and see what I can shift to support myself to find equilibrium and equipoise.
For this Self-Mastery I invite us to share a process of self-inquiry together and then jump into a session to consider what we find and how it can inform us going forward.
Between now and the Full Moon in Pisces, I invite you to join me in a fact finding mission. And, then, join me in a free Self-Mastery Session to reflect upon your data to learn about what it would mean to put in place a reasonable doable game plan to support you to check-in more and check-out less.
The aim is to identify the ways we check-out and learn about what we actually are needing and how we can lean into the things that help us to check-in. This will allow us to actually meet the needs that our unconscious patterns fail to address. With mindfulness and awareness we can more effectively tend to our bodies, minds and nervous systems to give us what we need to maintain equilibrium.
From here we can make conscious choices that contribute to our relaxing, rejuvenating and unwinding in ways that prepare us to take more pleasure in our free time and connect more meaningfully with the people our love.
