Life Changes: Climbing out of the Box

Contributor ,

ave you considered transforming your life by shedding behavioral patterns and belief codes? Think of something in your life that you wish to shed or change.

What benefits did you get by creating this as a habit in your life? How did it make you feel when you first noticed this behavior in your life? How does it make you feel when you do this behavior? How does this behavior or belief code affect your relationship with others? Will retaining this behavior or belief code lead you towards attaining the higher goals you wish to obtain in this lifetime? Weigh the pros and cons to determine if it is in your best interest to continue on this path.

Acknowledging you have a “problem” or behavior that no longer serves you is the first step towards making a lifestyle change.

Next, take an objective look at how you would like your life to be. Writing a list of the things you currently find unsatisfactory will help for today’s introspection and future insights.

Lock onto one habit that you would like to change. Look at it from every angle possible. This can be done through your imagination. Remember that you are only looking at possible solutions. Allow yourself to think “out of the box” and consider every angle, no matter how absurd or impossible it may seem. In many cases, the absurd or seemingly impossible idea may become the best solution, once you move past fears and limiting beliefs.

Write down anything that comes to your mind as to why you currently behave in this manner. Log both the pros and the cons, being as objective as possible. Remember that it is your fear or ignorance of other possibilities that is most likely to keep you from shedding this pattern. Have courage and know that if you choose to “try on a new coat” and it feels too uncomfortable, you can always return to your old way of living.

Be like the lion in “The Wizard of Oz” and have courage! The lion was afraid to try new things and quite often, his own tail would startle him. Yet, there came a moment in his life that he grew tired of his old ways and chose to press through his fears and make a lifestyle change. Initially, he was very frightened, but with practice and support from his friends, his courage grew. Any change you make in your life requires a certain amount of courage. As the good witch Glinda knew, you each have within you the power to make the changes that you wish to see in your life.

Once you have weighed the pros and cons of the specific behavior or belief code that you wish to change, then you are ready for the next step. Create a list of possible solutions or steps necessary to make the change. Know there are many paths to your final destination. Enjoy the journey along the way. Do not belittle yourself if you make what you or others judge as “poor” decisions. If one thing doesn’t work, then “pick yourself up, brush yourself off, and start all over again.”

The human experience is simply that, a set of experiences. Although it may be difficult to find value in a set of circumstances that has caused you fear or pain, know that there are benefits in these situations. Remind yourself that you reside in a world of polarity; where there is pain there is joy. Each experience you have allows an opportunity for growth. Each experience you have furthers your ability to connect with others who have had or are facing the same situation. For those of you with higher esoteric understanding, you will know that each experience you have benefits all and is a gift to the Source of all things. Through you, many others gain knowledge, experience and wisdom.

Everything you experience is stored in your body, creating a physical library. Know that nothing you do is in vain. You are valued beyond any measure you can possibly conceive. There is no “right” or “wrong” in anything you choose to experience. Choose what makes your heart sing. Climb out of the box and discover a world filled with endless possibilities!
