Think about something or someone in your life right now that you desire to “fix” or “figure out.” Now…close your eyes allowing this thought to permeate throughout your body and mind.
How do you desire to fix it or what is it that you need to figure out?
Allow all the frustration and pressure that comes with being the one who has to figure this out or fix it arise. While you are thinking upon this slowly scan your body and look for the tension, pain, tightness, tingling, heat that will be hiding out somewhere as a result of pondering how you need to fix or figure this out.
When we think upon issues with the perspective of “fixing” or “figuring out,” it always causes constriction and blocks in our body sometimes leading to disease (dis-ease).
When our body is constricted from emotional or mental disturbances our potential is blocked. This approach to our problems is very powerful, yet not so productive. When our bodies are constricted our creativity, or natural flow of life force energy is blocked and our ability to find true resolution is limited. Instead we have rigid and absolute approaches to the problems, including blaming, defensiveness, criticism, rightness, etc.
I understand that there are problems that arise that need some tending to, yet the approach is paramount.
Now let’s explore a different method of approaching the same issue as above by looking at it with Wonder & Curiosity:
- Hmmm, I wonder how I could ______________(bring more joy into my life, express love deeper to my partner, understand my children better, approach my boss for a raise, embrace healthy change, etc.)?
- Hmmm, I’m curious how we could work together on resolving this problem so that we are both happy?
- Hmmm, I wonder if we could see each other as allies seeking to feel more accepted and loved instead of enemies?
- Hmmm, I’m curious about what will happen if I approach this situation or person from a more loving, open, and creative perspective?
Again, close your eyes repeating silently to yourself the same problem with the new approach. Experience the difference in your body. Through being open, curiously moving toward a problem with wonder, you open up the natural flow of life force energy and invite Divine guidance to come through. You send a message to your Higher Self or The Universe that you desire the problem to be resolved, and even though you may have some ideas on how to go about this, you are open to Divine guidance so that you get the best result possible.
Try it out, experiment with it, play with it and see what happens. Let go of the need to be right, to fix, to figure out, to dictate, and let your creative potential be active. Create the space for all of the miracles available to you to come forth.
Suggestions: Write down all the issues, problems, concerns you are currently having using this technique. Each day – several times a day – say them, silently or aloud, and watch what happens. The perfect solution will and can show up just about anywhere and in any way, so be sure to be alert!
One of my favorite spiritual teachers once told me,
“Everything is a gift, but everything may not come wrapped in paper that is to your liking.”
The perfect solution may not be one that is wrapped to your liking, but in the end, it may be the best for you and your spiritual, emotional, physical and psychological self.
Next time you find yourself needing to fix or figure out a problem see if you can add a strong dose of Curiosity & Wonder to the mix and celebrate the opportunity to open up to your creative potential.
