As your awareness grows, so too does your ability to direct your thoughts, to master your mind, align your emotions with your goals and values and to think, speak and act congruently with your life’s positive purpose. This does not mean that all pain, anxiety, or disquiet disappear. Quite the opposite, as your awareness awakens so does your sensitivity to the suffering around you. However, so does your ability to stay calm and centered amidst the hustle and bustle of the material world.
Your subconscious hears (and believes) every word you say. With awareness comes a deep realization of the power of your words and thoughts and how a lack of alignment around your positive purpose can sabotage so much and hold you back. Journaling faithfully is an awesome way to go within, to gain perspective. Our actions, not our intentions, teach others our true beliefs. Daily introspection turbo charges our spiritual, personal, and professional growth. Invest a few morning moments designing the day you wish to create. In the eve, reflect back: how often were you your best self? Were you kind? Helpful? Did you contribute? Did you reach out? Grow? Will you go to bed a better person no matter by how little? Did you leave the world a better place even if ever so slightly?
The greater your awareness, the more and better choices you perceive. As you choose better, your life will get better.
