The Missing Step, or
The Reality Creation Cycle
You know that I talk, write and teach a lot about change. And that change CAN be easy. Here’s part of what got me started down that pathway.
I was introducing the idea about the connection between our thoughts, feelings and actions.
They’re intricately connected, whether we like it or want it or not.
Your thoughts affect your feelings which determine your actions. Which is how you show up in the world and which creates your reality.
Your actions perpetuate that thought which reinforces those feelings which causes you to repeat those actions.
That creates your reality.
If you embark on a project you think you’re really good at, you’ll be infused with a sense of confidence, which motivates you to take focused action towards accomplishing it. That will reinforce the thoughts that you’re good at this thing, which cultivates your confidence and motivates focused action towards whatever you’re wanting to have happen next.
This creates your reality.
If you’ve been told “You’re stupid,” and if your subconscious has taken on that belief, you thoughts will reinforce that message, you’ll start to feel stupid, and you won’t take the action that might have proven you wrong.
Your thoughts and feelings have created a different reality.
This cycle goes in both directions. It doesn’t matter where it starts. Your thoughts, feelings and actions create your reality.
Here’s an example of what can happen when you don’t like the reality you’ve created and want to change something.
Let’s take being shy.
If you’ve been reading my stuff, you know that’s part of my story.
The thought in my head was that I wanted to speak up; there was definitely something I wanted to say. I knew in my heart that I wanted to feel confident, to make my point and be heard. But the action of speaking up just didn’t happen.
The old cycle was still in place.
The Missing Step
When change is difficult, a step is missing.
That missing step is often the body. In my case, I didn’t have the neural pathway for confidence, yet.
In doing the EQ with Body Wisdom work, I created the neural pathway for confidence. And a new reality was created!
THAT is the key to change!
