Inner noticing is the impetus to healing, growth and self-transformation.
As you're going about life:
- something unexpected can happen: an, illness, injury, job loss, break up, divorce, death.
- juggling the usual slew of things, you gradually - or suddenly - realize: IT's TOO MUCH. You hit your limit. Tipping point reached. DONE.
- you develop a growing malaise or restlessness without any logical explanation. Thoughts of chugging along in your ordinary way trigger anxiety, a feeling of dread or despair.
These kinds of experiences can be confusing, uncertain and sometimes utterly terrifying. They can be jarring, or feel like an explosion that rocks your world. It's hard to even begin to know what to do or where to start.
You quest to desperately find the solution. You seek advice, Google, ask experts. You're overwhelmed by the wealth of suggestions out there, confused about how to apply them or none of the recommendations or evidenced-based information feels like the right fit. You feel stuck, you begin to despair. You will do anything to feel better.
You want an answer.
You want desperately to know what comes next.
You want clarity and direction.
There is another way.
Turn your attention inwards.
You have a built-in capacity to know what's best for YOU.
Your mind has an inherent ability to seek out, categorize and decode the information that lands in your awareness. Your body naturally provides you with "truth or anxiety signals" that you experience via sense and feel. By tuning into and becoming skillful with noticing both your mind and body, you become masterful at translating the signals that reveal the most essential information for you in any circumstance. You begin to notice that you can navigate by an internal compass that reveals your Truth, and like a magnet, you begin to move towards it.
As a mind-body coach I help my clients to fine tune their noticing apparatus by cultivating awareness of sensation in the body, skillfulness in noticing habitual thought and belief patterns in the mind, and ability to allow the energy of emotions to flow and inform your actions.
