Just The Facts, Ma'am...

So...are you ready to shift? Let's deconstruct that Matrix of yours.....

Take the area of your life that's weighing you down, exhausting your energy, keeping you up at night, ad nauseum. Write it down on the top of a blank sheet of paper. 

Next divide your page down the middle making two columns. In the column on the left state what is true about this area of life that you've chosen. Stick to the actual facts about this area. In other words, as the infamous Joe Friday of Dragnet would say, "Just the facts maam, just the facts".

THE FUN BEGINS. Now, start recording your chatter.....all of it. List the boatload of fears and judgments that follow you around. This is your chatter, that little voice in your head, the monkey mind, and the baggage you carry around on your back like a 10 pound sack of garbage. Censor Nothing! Let it flow, let it flow, let it flow.

Here's an example: Suppose you have a job you don't really like, but you keep it for security. It pays your bills. You're not happy doing what you do. You're afraid of change and you have no idea what else to do.

The facts maam just the facts: You have a job. It pays your bills and it doesn't soothe your soul.

The fears and judgments of your monkey mind: What would I do if I didn't have this job? I'm not qualified to do anything else. Who would hire me? If I quit, people will talk. They'll say I'm impulsive. They'll say I'm lazy? What if I make a mistake? What if I follow my heart and fail? What then? What will I do? What will people think of me? What am I going to do, be miserable for the rest of my life? Life sucks. How will I take care of myself? I'm just frickin' worthless!

Whew!! That's was exhausting....yes?!? Now what?

Well, first off I'd suggest taking a breath. Yes breathe... ahhh...
