Happy New Year and welcome to 2012!! We're ready for change and change it will be. According to my favorite astrologer and numerologist, Maria Shaw, the year 2012 is a "5" year. The number five represents change. In the previous year you may have thought about change. In this year, you most likely will make it happen.
As the Man in the Mirror Segment starts, I hope that you will be patient with yourself. I hope that you will realize that change is a process, not an instant cure. Like anything you do in your life that is worthwhile, it will be important to remember that old saying that "Rome wasn't built in a day". This is a process, and if you give yourself time and forgiveness along the way, I promise you'll see a difference.
Week one we are going to focus on what real change is about. It's not about the way we look it's about the way we feel. Inside of us are many thoughts that come and go. Some of them we are conscious of, and others come and go without any awareness at all. This week lets start with our base level of consciousness, our feelings.
This is a lesson in introspection. To see your man in the mirror, you must focus on how you feel when certain situations arise in your life. To begin, you may recall certain situations in your life that make you feel "bad", make you feel "guilty", or make you feel "ashamed". We won't talk about those things that make you feel good or uplifted yet, as you most likely won't want to change those. So think back on those "ugly" feelings. As you do you may begin to experience the feeling again. You are recreating what is already within you. Do you notice now? There is a pattern. If there wasn't a pattern of energy already within you, you would not be able to recreate the experience. This is the pattern of energy, the addiction, that we need to work on. Keep focused on this "feeling" and ask yourself these three questions:
1. How does it make me feel?
2. What benefit does it serve in my life?
3. What is it that I notice about myself when I experience these feelings? (i.e. do I go smoke a cigarette, drink, eat, sleep) What ever the "response" to the feeling is, I want you to take notice of it.
I would suggest getting a notebook and writing these things down. As you do, you will be revealing the pattern that is present in your life, blocking your joy. This first step, is to merely notice. If you don't have any answers, it's ok. Give it time. For now, just notice.
Should you experience an unpleasant situation similar to the one that you remembered, or even another one that seems unrelated in the coming days, I want you to notice as the feeling comes on what you are experiencing and try to give it a name. Anger, sadness, hurt, vulnerable, whatever it is that comes to mind. Right now just notice.http://michaeljacksontwinsoul.blogspot.com/
