The Unknown

I'm focusing on my relationship with The Unknown this week, and I’m having a really great time unravelling this massive concept. To begin with, just a little exploration and the whole cohesive identity of The Unknown begins to fall apart. 

Ultimately, when we get to the root of our deepest fears, we find that in some way, they all stem from our relationship with death and separation, death being the ultimate Unknown. 

When YOU connect with The Unknown, what specifically comes up in your awareness? Just take this one moment to observe yourself. What does The Unknown bring up for you?

Maybe it brings up: Money. What if I can’t find a job? I don’t know what to do with my life. Why am I so angry all the time? What and where is my purpose? But I don’t know what will happen! I don’t know!!!!!!!!!

All of these are signs pointing to deeper revelations. They are gifts that can guide you toward the growth of inner security and support, disillusionment about identity, and what experiencing meaning in life really is for you.

How we relate to the unknown in our lives is a common theme in my work with my clients. There is so much conditioned fear, so many feelings of being victimized by what we don’t know, as though what is unknown not only has a life of it’s own, but a specific goal to take us down. 

The mind is a powerful projector, and as those of you who have had LifeLine sessions with me know, it is our perception that determines what we experience and how we interpret (derive meaning from) our subjective realities. And the thing is, our experience (that we perceive to be coming from ‘out there’) is actually a reflection of what we hold as true, deep within the subconscious mind. Simply put: the conflict in your life points the way toward total transformation and healing.

In a LifeLine session, you get to set a powerful new intention and bridge the gap between all of that old subconscious conditioning and what you consciously choose to become now

As you contemplate The Unknown, it might be fun to think about all of the 'unknowns' that you have no problem with at all - the little ones: what you're gonna wear tomorrow, when the new iPhone is coming out, what you're going to have for dinner later in the week, what the weather will be tomorrow, when you'll talk with a sibling next, when Spring is finally going to get here, etc. - the unknowns that are actually everywhere all the time, but are so low on perceived importance that they don't bother you at all.

This can begin to unravel the concept of The Unknown from a ‘fearful monster' into something much easier to navigate, really just a temporary adjective without independent substance. You get to appreciate that you actually have zero resistance to an enormous amount of unknowns. You only react to Unknowns in the areas of your life where you’re being encouraged to grow and evolve like a superstar.

Awareness Challenge: What does it mean to be Present?

For just *this moment*, can you make a radical choice to drop out of the mind and into your heart and just FEEL what it's like to be here? Maybe take a breath into that feeling. And have no opinions about it at all. And that's it. You're welcome to stay as long as you like. 

Why does it often take a heightened or traumatic event to jar us out of our conditioned thinking and into the being of the present moment? The elusive realm of now, available to all of us unconditionally... if only we could find it.  

Present Time Consciousness (PTC in LifeLine lingo) is what interrupts the autopilot in you. Becoming fully present is the first step in every LifeLine session.

PTC allows us to observe symptoms and stress (what you observe, you influence) and then raise our consciousness with intention (intention is set from PTC).

Genuine Confidence no matter what

There's a very simple approach to confidence that has revolutionized my relationship with performing and given me the courage to take action in my life in ways that had previously seemed overwhelming. This blog is a perfect example. Welcome to my blog! (My what? My blog!)

I tend to think in bigger, idealistic thoughts, and it can be a challenge for me to break that vision into doable daily actions. I know what it is to be paralyzed by a creative vision! How do I make that Happen? And where do I even start? So here it is:

There is ONE THING you can ALWAYS have 100% genuine confidence in, no matter what - your ability to learn.

For instance, when I step into my audition later today, rather than having to summon confidence from all the effort and preparation I've put into this material I'm about to perform, I will shift my focus instead to a much more yin approach. Before I step into the room, I will surrender the whole thing, the success of the audition, the potential job, the potential income, the potential weeks of work that could help me to qualify for health insurance... all of it. I give it all up in advance. And then, I have a thought about how, no matter what, I can always learn something new. I think about how gentle and fun it is to learn new things and have new experiences. The heart softens and the burden of any imposed Confidence in the audition room is released. Then, I can become a Player in the olde worlde sense. I may not have any control over the outcome of the audition, but I have a wonderful feeling of openness and presence during it. Stepping forward today with this week's intention: I AM Learning with Ease, feeling Joyful Expansion! Infinite Love & Gratitude.
