How can we make Conscious Choices?

Posted by on May 25, 2020 in Chances to change

There is an ongoing, never-ending weaving happening between our true self and all the aspects of our human self. This kaleidoscope creates our reality. It is often so hard for us to make a conscious choice. What does that mean to make a conscious choice? For those of you who have played the C2C game, you will already be familiar with the steps that take us through the game, and for those of you who have yet to play, we felt that including all the steps would perhaps be too much information and detract from the unfolding story.  When you have the opportunity to play with one of our facilitators, the rhythm of the game will become clearer. This is the story of a woman – let’s call her Anna – who has trouble choosing whether to move to a new house with her partner or to stay where she has been living and loves to live. She’s all too aware of these opposing sides within herself:  one side absolutely doesn’t want to move and is afraid of losing her ground if she does. She experiences the new house as too open, unable to protect her.  Anna feels she will be disconnected from her family and friends if she lives there as she sees herself as someone who doesn’t easily create new relationships. On the other side is a part of her that looks forward to having a new adventure and exploring a new environment – this part loves to have new experiences and is excited about life. To help her understand these opposite sides of herself, Anna agreed to play the ChancesToChange board game.

It spoke to her of being ungrounded and yet feeling completely safe and at home. Something very precious was being held in her hands. On reading the card, Anna was struck by the realisation that what she, Anna, is protecting is her true self – “it’s precious and I care for it” she said. As she sat with this awareness and the question offered by the card, she also realised :  “I want to be seen and I don’t want to be seen – I have both sides.” In her next card – the card of ‘relationships’ – representing her adventurous aspect, Anna had the impression of an outwards expanding form and an inwards contracting form, holding a tender place in the middle. Reading the card, what touched her most was the importance in relationships to first care for her own self and from that place move out into relationship. We imagine that many of you can relate to Anna’s dilemma.  Let’s take a moment to sit with what is unfolding here. The magic of listening to our human self Our human self...
