Awareness Insights on One Page
Only through heightened awareness do we grow personally and spiritually.
Awareness is not just an intellectual exercise. We must experience a new way
of being in our physical body. Only in this way can we release repressed fears,
pains and negative emotions and open to new possibilities. And here's good news:
awareness alone often brings change.
How to use the 'Awareness on One Page' worksheet:
Find some time when you can focus without interruption. Set an intention to
relax and be open to experiencing more deeply. This is a time for you to be
present to the moment and to focus inside. To help you grasp how to be a
conscious observer, review awareness perspectives. We recommend that you write
your notes in your journal and then print your
'Awareness on one page'
form to summarize your conclusions on. Here's your guide to
completing each of the exercises.
- Identify the situation you want to
understand more deeply and perhaps resolve. Ideally, pick a situation or
problem that is presently active and important to you. Describe it.
- Think about your focus, and sense your
physical body. Where and what do you feel? Is your breathing deep or shallow?
Are you tense or relaxed? Do you feel pain or tension anywhere in particular?
Observe without judging any sensations that arise -- allow them to be.
- Review your situation again and be aware of
your emotions. What
and emotions are present? How would you describe
your mood? Attitude(s)? Desires?
- What thoughts come to mind? What do you
believe about yourself, others and life with respect to this situation?
triggers this kind of
response in you? What would your
early warning signals be?
- Ask your Higher Self questions relative to
this situation. For example, if you have pain, tension or excitement anywhere
in your body, ask what this sensation means. Ask for guidance on thoughts or
beliefs and be alert for answers. They may come immediately or over the next
- For any negative thought or emotion you are
experiencing, identify the positive to which you aspire. What higher quality,
virtue or value do you want to express? Healing is about allowing the negative
and positive to coexist without judgment.
- Review what you have written in your journal
or on the awareness summary worksheet. What insights have you realized?
- Is there something you want to do relative
to your situation, given your insights? How will you act differently now with
respect to this situation?
