Waking Up to What Is

Waking Up to What Is

Have you ever had the experience of discovering something new, like a word or phrase, then overnight you read and hear it seemingly everywhere? It was always there, you just didn’t know it. Positivity is like that. It changes how your mind works. It doesn’t just change the contents of your mind it changes the scope, widening the span of possibilities that you see.

The cultivation of positivity is a practice and, at times, may seem too simplistic to be true. Rest assured this is not a “fake it till you make it” practice. It requires effort, but it will be worth your while. Try it out. Be your own experiment/experimenter.

 

With gratitude to Barbara Fredrickson, Ph. D.

Therapy is a unique profession in that one of its purposes is to help search for new meaning to old problems. Recently, I started playing with the idea of therapy as a practice toward personal wisdom. For some, the practice is more of cultivation while for others it’s more excavation. For the bulk of us, it’s somewhere in between.
