When you are choosing, what are you choosing from?
Are you choosing from what you have done before? Are you referencing past experience and choosing from the conclusions you drew from those experiences? Are you choosing from what you were told was right or wrong, or what you concluded was right or wrong? Are you choosing from the roles you define yourself as: mother, father, daughter, son, boss, employee, American, Mexican, Jewish, Christian, Muslim, engineer, artist? Are you choosing from how you learned to do things in your family, your profession, your culture, your economic status, or in resistance to any of those?
Are you choosing from how you defined yourself to be? Are you choosing from your conditioning? Or, in resistance to how you were conditioned?
What if all those roles, conclusions, repetitive patterns, definitions were templates of beliefs, judgments, conclusions, autopilots that you wrapped around you that obscure you from You? From choosing what really works for You or what is true for You?
Are you aware of the difference, choosing for you, from You vs from conditioning and autopilot? How does your body respond when you choose for you, as You? How does your body respond when you choose against You?
What emotions show up when you choose from You, as You? What emotional response do you have when you choose against You?
What energy shows up when you choose for You, as You? What energy shows up when you choose against You?
Are you aware of the difference? Do you know the difference between you – the conditioning, judgments, conclusions, self-limitations? And You? Undefined, unrestrained, unlimited, expanded, aware You? How does your body respond when you are being You? And, when you are not? What emotions show up when you are being You and when you are not? What energy shows up when you are being You and when you are not?
Do you have activities you do every day to line up with You? To get the felt sense of You? What if you did something every day, even multiple times a day, to remember You? To compare and contrast the conditioned, limited you with You?
Now did you just go into a conditioned response of not having time? Being too busy? Having to create a practice? You already have a practice? What if those conclusions just stopped you from choosing You? Aligning with and living from You?
What if you could use activities that were brief and to the point? What if you could use them throughout the day to realign with You?
So, what do you choose today? For You or against You? From the freedom, creativity and expansiveness of You? Or, from your conditioning, limitations, roles?
What shows up different in your living when you choose for You, as You? What if you gave up all those energetic templates of conditioning, conclusions, judgments, beliefs? How much more freedom would your body have if it were not overlaid with all that limitation? How much less detrimental emotional impact would your body have? How much more ease could your body have if you allowed You to flow through it instead of contracting You and cutting off its life force? How much more health could it experience?
I invite you to compare and contrast what occurs when you are choosing from limitation, conditioning, roles, vs You. I invite you to use activities throughout the day that align you with You to get the felt sense of the difference.
What and where will you choose from today?
