Well here we are with Shift #15. I’m calling it, ever so simply, ‘You’. (If you missed the last post, catch up here).
The recording, below, was created to help you directly experience who and what you are beyond the typical left brain experience of yourself as a personality in a body moving through time. While this is the most common, (many would say only possible) perception of ourselves, that is not true. It is also the foundation of much worry, fear and pressure.
It creates the sense of being vulnerable, small and at risk. It suggests our days are limited, therefore, we’d better make things happen before we run out of time. It’s what makes our minds anxiously fret about edging ever-closer to an expiry date and is the reason we don’t relish the journey towards our goals and intentions or trust that life will support us without having to force, strain and struggle.
Yet almost none of us even question whether life could be otherwise.
The perception, “I’m separate, limited and alone,” is only a pervasive energy pattern like the one we talked about in Shift #9: Practice Time. As a child, this time-defined thinking didn’t dominate your inner experience and as a conscious adult, its possible to choose otherwise too.
Today’s recording is meant to give you a peek at who you are beyond the ‘normal’ limited perception of yourself.
Imagine knowing for sure that you are more than your body and the personality inhabiting it.
Imagine knowing you have all the time needed to achieve whatever you want… because you exist beyond time.
Imagine being so fully immersed in each present moment that no part of your mind anxiously scans the future for danger or ruminates over the past.
Your right brain perceives you – and time – this way. Always. Any time you can witness yourself from this alternate view, even just for a few moments, you’ll feel your body relax and your mind quiet.
Who you really are is limitless. And you can know it.
Another advantage of experiencing your real self directly is that it puts the relative size and importance of your emotions/energy fields into perspective. You can start to notice that even intense emotions occupy only a fraction of you.
If you haven’t always gotten relief yet by using the In Deeper process, today’s recording may help you recognize how much bigger you are than any emotion or energy field and the history or ‘story’ it spins.
Sensing the spaciousness around these vibrating structures help them dissipate with greater ease… for the same reason that dropping a teaspoon of boiling water into a cool ocean would cause its heat to rapidly disperse to the point of being indistinguishable from the whole.
After you’ve listened to this recording, I’ll make a follow-up to it. In that upcoming recording, I’ll guide you to witness an emotion/energy field related to the intention you brought to this program from a full-on right brain perception of yourself. To date, we’ve focussed primarily on negatively-charged emotions, but as we’ll discover, you can also let the broader awareness of yourself add structure to positive emotions/energy fields. We set the stage for this in Shift #8: It’s the Sand and I’m the Sound.
I’ll do my best to walk you through all of that in one recording.
For now though, when you’re ready, find a quiet place and 28 minutes with no outside distractions. Plan to use those elements (space and time) to immerse yourself in a rich, healthy, relaxing and eye-opening experience of YOU.
As a side note, Elke, who transcribes the recordings for me, tells me that in the recording, I referred to this as Shift #17. Would you mind just chuckling at that with me? I recall very deliberately saying ’15’ so I can’t explain what happened. Maybe a parallel version of myself with a sense of humour snuck in for a split second there.
