Life sometimes can feel like endless cycles of misery, suffering and filled with things that no longer bring us joy. Discovering the patterns through refined awareness has the potential to change your life completely.
Are you sick of waking up feeling like groundhog day is on an endless loop? If you would prefer to wake up filled with purpose and a sense of joy, you need to read on.
The mindfulness practise of discovering patterns in life through refined awareness, is a whole lot simpler than you might think. Refining awareness requires focused attention to the small things that we miss in our everyday lives. These are the things that we do repetitively, both consciously and subconsciously, that often sabotage our life.
When we learn to focus on the things that are potentially sabotaging our life, we can discover patterns in behaviour that are holding us back. Patterns can develop after experiencing trauma, disappointment and failure. Yet the very kinds of experiences that bring us suffering are also poignant in aiding our potential for growth in life.
We can often get stuck in an endless loop because instead of learning from the failure and moving forward, we fearfully hold onto the pain that usually joins in the party as its faithful companion. Until we learn to release the gripping of the feelings associated with failure, we find it difficult to move forward, and the cycle continues.
To top it off, when we are focused on fear, we struggle to see the repetitive patterns of behaviour at all, and they continue holding us back in life. However, the best part is that all this can change, with some simple mindfulness practices that are relatively easy to learn and adapt into your everyday life.
The most beautiful part of mindfulness is that you can progress as slow or as fast as you like. It is all up to you. I introduced mindfulness practices into my life many years ago, and yet my lived experience continues to expand and grow every day. Life is a journey, not a destination, so growth can be a continuum if you choose.
Life is always a work in progress. Each day we wake up, we can choose to grow or stagnate. The choice is always our own to make. What you choose today defines who you become tomorrow.
