ChiLiving Blog - The Conscious Process of Positive Change Part 3: Understanding, Resolution, Action

Nothing is so wonderful as those “aha” moments when understanding dawns upon you and suddenly bewilderment and confusion disappear into a moment of clarity and insight.

There is a sense of relief at the resolution of whatever problem you were contemplating; an almost startled awakening to an understanding that is new and complete unto itself. It is a body-mind experience that can overtake all of your awareness in that moment. It is the Einstein moment of  “getting it”.

You can create the conditions for this kind of understanding. Just follow the yellow brick road that starts with awareness and acceptance.

ChiLiving Blog: The Conscious Process of Positive Change, Part 2: Awareness and Acceptance

If you’re trying to map out a run in a new city, you’ll get lost if your directions start from the wrong Marriott in town. Same with any plan for improving your life. If you start from the wrong place, you won’t end up where you want to.

Awareness and acceptance are the first stages of conscious change because they place you, exactly where you are, right now. If you want improved health, better communication in your relationships, a career that suits who you are, you have to start exactly where you are, at this moment…not where you want or wish to be.

Yes, you can visualize, see, feel, taste where you want to be, but first comes awareness and acceptance of your current situation and experience.

ChiLiving Blog: The Conscious Process of Positive Change, Part 1

Life does not stand still. No matter how we try to stop it, change occurs and time carries life forward like the steady flow of a river.

So even without our conscious effort, change happens.

But there are many times when we want that change to take a certain direction; we’d like a particular outcome. Running is a great example. Without conscious effort, running can often degrade into injury. The 65% injury rate is a testament to that.

And, with conscious attention, it doesn’t have to be that way. You most certainly can learn to run or walk or eat or talk or listen in a way that does not degrade your quality of life, but in a way that increases the potential for enjoyment, for feeling healthy, for expressing yourself in a positive way, for feeling deeply nourished physically and in your relationships.

Personality Test for Runners

Personality Test for Runners

“Your biography becomes your biology.”

Judge your personality or place in life based upon how you run.  As a more fit and modern palm reader, ask your friend, spouse or take it upon yourself to take off a shoe and read into a sole.  Instead of looking at hand lines and wrinkles, learn how your experiences and attitudes shape the movement of your body.
