Holographic Reflections & Coaching Notes
There is something very special about having a vision, knowing and acting on our purpose and passions or at least being able to keep adding to our life story and making sense of our daily life events. In a generation or two gone by, that vision or purpose was inaccessible to most people, as family, church or state dictated our lives. We were happiest when our clan was happy and we did what was expected of us. Individuals often had to live their lives through the expectations of others suppressing any desires to lead a different life. A lack of personal happiness would often lead to non coherent behaviors as work-around solutions. The eldest son expected to take over the family business instead of following his dream of higher education is a common example or women expected to marry, have children and avoid a career altogether is another.
Today, personal happiness has swung the other way and is much more valued in society. In fact with the pressure to be personally happy, many are at a loss to know what that means. In my practice I often receive the complaint from clients lamenting they are out of touch with their true purpose. Not knowing or resonating with our vision or purpose we easily fall victim to life's circumstances.
We have the opportunity to make thousands of choices each day . Each choice we make either enhances our life story or invisibly creates chaos and upset moves towards non coherence when we are out of touch with our purpose. We make decisions so fast that we rarely stop to think of how they fit in with our values and direction we want to take our life. If our overall life vision, purpose or passions are undefined OR worse we know them but do not resonate with them, our life tends to take a course dictated by circumstances or other people. By acting on choices in a field of resonance that supports a life vision, we are supported in mastering the present moment and organically create a life of fulfillment that drives us toward our vision. A feeling of happiness, contentment and fulfillment often accompanies this field of resonance. We feel at home within ourselves.
Author Ginnie Whitelaw says 'Everything is energy... resonance is how we shape it"
Having a life vision and resonating with your life vision helps you to consciously shape each present moment with decisions that support your life vision. Life starts working out ... better than expected! However, we must take the time to reflect on what that vision (or purpose or passion) is, and become aware of how we act on it each day. What gets in our way? What decisions are in conflict with our vision? How are we unconsciously blocking the manifestation of our vision?

With the pandemic fears have most of us still living a cautious scaled back life, our eyes now drained from online zoom visits and each day blurring into the next it is important to focus on our field of energy to stay in that spiralled up state where we can experience the best of our circumstances. One fabulous energy tool to support this principle is the active act of daily appreciation. The intention I like to suggest we resonate with is:
“I appreciate 3 good things that happened for me today.”
There is a lot written about the benefits of having an attitude of gratitude, but perhaps one of the most amazing facts is how it can be used to tame the tiger within called anxiety or fear. When we spend as little as 3 minutes appreciating ourselves, our loved ones, the people we work with, the day, the weather, our neighbor, a home cooked meal or a restaurant treat, our vehicle, mother nature and anything else you can think of …. amazing things start happening in our brain. A chemical is released which anchors and expands our feelings of gratitude and squeezes out or cancels fear and anxiety.
The more we practice verbalizing and thinking about how grateful we are, we become more calm and relaxed, handling challenges with ease. If life challenges seem really overwhelming and that there is little to be grateful for, start with the smallest thing – the weather, your home, your pet etc.In the beginning, our fear and anxiety button may feel more real and easier to engage than being grateful. Saying gratitude statements may feel less than genuine.
However, I encourage you to hang in and keep flinging gratitude statements whenever you can. Soon your outward experience will come zooming home with positive results. For example, I noticed that when driving, if I forgive those road ragers or overly aggressive drivers and focus on the great roads, the clear map directions, the gift of GPS, how wonderful the city is for maintaining the roads etc. my actual driving experience returns some delightful surprises – very convenient parking spaces, the traffic cop waving me through a construction area unexpectedly, drivers being courteous and traffic flowing better than usual.
Keep your attitude of gratitude sharp. Quick name 3 good things that have happened for you today:
Here are mine: I am grateful that today
1. was a beautiful warm sunny day here in Toronto with a gentle breeze that kept my apartment cool.
2. a friend that sent over a home cooked dinner (so that i didn't have to cook)
3. That i made the time to work on a long standing sewing project revitalizing old pillow cases with new trims, recycing a sheet to make ruffles. (it was a fun project that helped me to integrate a new pattern of spending time doing creative things)
How about you? What 3 good things that have happened for you today?
