It is not the cards we are dealt that decide our happiness; it is how we respond to the situation. Every turn of the road we have an opportunity to view ourselves as a victim or choose to be the hero in our own life. This is not something imaginary. As the Molecules of Emotion by Candace Pert, Ph.D. details, research now shows us precisely how our thoughts, beliefs and attitudes mold our life.
This is a time of great change. It is not the time to feed or reinforce a sense of powerlessness or fear because that discourages innovative, courageous and pro-active responses. So whenever you feel stuck, overwhelmed or confused, no matter what the situation, activate your childhood curiosity and your conscious mind.
Sometimes we need to make subtle changes and sometimes we need to take bold action to change the course of our life. So how can we know what kind of action to take? How can we trust ourselves enough to step out of old behavior and step boldly into our future when that is what is needed?
I think the more time we practice shifting from our subconscious and reactive mind to our conscious problem-solving mind the more prepared and the easier it is to know what to do and how to do it.
With this in mind, I invite you to explore some of the ICWIB! art activities and videos for FREE, because they can help you learn how to shift mind states, reconnect deeply with yourself and give you the courage to trust yourself even in the most challenging situations.
