Growth Tools - Practical tools for meaningful growth

How we grow

"Growth itself contains the germ of happiness."
-- Pearl S. Buck

We grow when:

  1. We become more aware of what’s happening right now.
  2. We heal the past by shifting our experience of pain or duality to new levels of love and wisdom.
  3. We consciously create the future.

In each of these three areas, we become conscious of what is unconscious.

So much of our behaviour is governed by our subconscious minds. We tend to be unconscious of the beliefs, repressed emotions and habitual patterning resident there that govern how we perceive reality and therefore, how we feel and act. And so we grow when we become conscious of:

  • our reactions
  • our defenses
  • our feelings
  • our beliefs and judgments
  • the objective reality (as compared to the perceived reality)
  • our motives
  • our inspiration and life purpose
  • our power to manifest.

Our subconscious filters distort and colour the higher truths. Consequently, we are also unconscious of the wisdom, power and love of our authentic selves. Clearing the subconscious filters automatically reveals our higher nature, our essence.

Half the battle is allowing the unconscious to become conscious. Much of growing ourselves is being open to new aspects of who we are – both the negative and the positive.

If we are unconscious, our future is created from our past, through patterns in our subconscious. If we are conscious, our future is created with intention in each moment.

Do you want your future to look like your past? Is it time to stop and pay attention?

P.S. Be aware -- Your next issue of ‘Growth Tools’ will look completely different!

"I am proposing that we reconceive the dream. That we consider what would happen if security were not the point of our existence. That we find freedom, aliveness, and power not from what contains, locates, or protects us but from what dissolves, reveals, and expands us." -- Eve Ensler
