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. Two aspects, two blue cards Anna’s first insight into her reserved side was through the painting on the card of ‘being’. 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...

How can the ChancesToChange board game be of service to you?

Posted by on Apr 1, 2020 in Chances to change

We are listening to your unique experience and how you give meaning to what is happening. We are shapeshifting a field of fear into a flow of joy, ease and love. These are special times. What is your current story? What is underneath the Coronavirus outbreak? What might really be happening? What is the essence of the Corona outbreak? Maybe it is the choice either to go for fear or to go for joy, ease and love; the choice to stay in survival mode or to go for new opportunities.  Fear brings more fear and limitations on all levels of our being. Joy, ease and love create health and the possibility of new beginnings.  What if we experience the Coronavirus outbreak as a flow where we can choose which forms with their related functions we create. What will we cover in this article: Experiencing the Coronavirus outbreak as a flowThe major players of the board gameWhat gives you strength and power in these timesThe dance between our small self and our true self Experiencing the Coronavirus outbreak as a flow Flow, form and function is the movement in all of existence. If we are willing to consider the possibility that the Coronavirus outbreak is a flow of life force we open up to many possible choices with regard to the forms and functions that are able to unfold. We give our self the possibility to be responsive to what happens in our life and to live with ease and joy. Yes there is the fear and yes there is the reality of people dying. It is important that we don’t underestimate the fear in the collective field, it is dense and sticky. It is invisible and contagious. Our small selves are very susceptible to fear. Each of us has his or her unique way in which our small self processes fear. Some of us experience panic attacks, some of us try to control, others stay calm and try to fix, analyse, rationalise. Some will become angry or blame. These are all survival modes related to, and triggered by, the field of fear. There are a lot of ramifications caused by a collective field paralysed by fear or being governed by fear.  Fear has no power in itself, but when so many people, organisations and systems invest in fear, it becomes overwhelming. We are allowing fear to have authority over us, creating a loop of fear. The only solution is to move our attention from fear-based choices towards our true self, aligning us to what really matters to us. What is the underlying message of the outbreak, what is it bringing us? If we consider this outbreak as a flow of life force, we are able to see it as part of the intelligent design of the earth and all life on it and as part of our evolution. This is the...

How to access and travel your own dimensional highway?

Posted by on Jul 10, 2018 in Aspects of life

In this exquisite journey on earth your soul incarnates through a soul channel. This soul channel is your highway through the different dimensions. Let’s start with the question: in which dimension do you live in? The picture shows us the different dimensions as described in our previous article and the three different possible positions to live in. We can live in the third dimension (3D), the person at the left side of the picture. When we are confined to 3D, we appear to forget the access code for the other dimensions. We often believe we can only return to the spiritual world after death. We are sometimes even convinced that the human world represents hell and the higher dimensions heaven. We can also completely live within the spiritual dimensions as the person in the middle of the picture shows. This person has accomplished what we consider enlightenment. There is however no connection left with the earth-bound dimensions and the treasures and opportunities of life as a human being. We can also live positioned in the fourth dimension (4D), the person at the right side of the picture. We are captured in the powerful flow of consciousness which may offer us an entry into the higher vibrational levels and we might become lost in the lower vibrational levels. Within the whole continuum of vibrational levels there is the possibility of what might be called psychotic symptoms and episodes. A psychotic symptom or episode can be a channelling of a higher vibrational being, an awakening, an hallucination, a delusion or a split personality. And between these three extremes there are endless positions available to you. How can you understand where you’re living and how can you find entries into more dimensions? Let’s approach this step by step: • The meaning of dimensions for a physical body. • What is the “I” that knows? • How is the “I” connected with your soul? • What is your soul’s purpose? The meaning of dimensions for a physical body The next step on your journey with your experience of life as a human being, is the understanding that your body functions holographically within the intelligent design of the earth and all life on it. This means that your body is surrounded and permeated by the same dimensions which surround and permeate the earth. Your body can access all those same dimensions. With their consciousness, the earth and your body contribute to the dimensions which surround them. This is a bold statement and a very important one! They ceaselessly contribute with their intelligent design to the evolutionary purpose, to the wholeness and the self-management of the bigger whole. The earth and your body are continuously affecting and being affected by the earth-bound and spiritual dimensions. So you see, the earth and your body are not simply playthings at the mercy of a powerful universe. What is...

How can we inspire our unique evolutionary purpose?

Posted by on Oct 23, 2015 in Aspects of life

An inner listening environment offers the voices of judgement, cynicism and fears a safe space to relax and reconnect to their original purpose in our life. How can we invite our personality to inspire for the highest evolutionary purpose for our soul and physical body? Our personality is our magic tool to learn to maximally experience live as a soul partnering with a physical body.   And it is quite an endeavour: Voices of judgement tend to block our ability to change our images and beliefs. Voices of cynicism destroy our natural empathy and our ability to look through the eyes of the other. Voices of fear make it hard for us to let go of our habitual patterns to react to what is happening to us and around us. The invitation is to create a listening environment for the frightened parts of our personality.   Voices of judgment The voices of judgment continuously express judgment towards ourselves and others. They reinforce the beliefs and images we have of the world, ourselves, and others. Examples of those voices are: “You are not okay as you are!” “You do not belong!” “You make a fool of yourself!” These voices affect our ability to open our reason. Opening our reason means to create space in our brain for our marvellous ideas and concepts, give space to our dreams for our life. The act of opening our reason makes that we allow a creative flow to move through us in connection with ourselves and others. This act creates the possibility of a sacred listening environment.   Voices of cynicism The voices of cynicism make us feel ashamed of who and how we are in the world. They trouble our sense of being responsible and assimilate what happens to us and around us. They can sound like: “You don’t assume you can open your heart without the risk to be hurt!” “The world is not a safe place and never will be, this world is not for softies!” “Stop trying to be so kind and gentle!” “Survival of the fittest!” These voices point to our wounding, our pain bodies and stories. They convince us that our natural needs to be seen, to be safe, to be recognized, to be appreciated are endangered and that we have to get into competition with others, close our emotion and stop trying to look at the world through the eyes of the other. They prevent an easy gratification of our natural human needs.   Voices of fear The voices of fear pretend to protect us from exposing ourselves into the world, from taking the risk to be abandoned, annihilated, rejected, betrayed, humiliated. Those voices can sound like: “You will be abandoned!” “You will be rejected when you keep on showing so much vulnerability!” “People will betray you and you will have asked for it!” “I have said...

Practice don’t Preach Theory U in 7 Breaths! 4th Breath.

Posted by on Apr 15, 2015 in Aspects of life

PRACTICE DON’T PREACH THEORY U IN 7 BREATHS! 4th BREATH.    We meet and live the “groan zone” in our Guest House, an inevitable step to allow the “letting-go” of what no longer serves us and arrive at the bottom of the U.   What is the “groan zone”? Are you able to recognize the groan zones in your life? The “groan zone” is a term introduced for the first time by Sam Kaner and his colleagues in 1998. They define the “groan zone” as a natural period of confusion arising in a meeting when difficult issues emerge whilst in the process of what they call participatory decision-making. We define “groan zone” as a phase where we can experience stuckness, resistance, blocked energy, confusion. We often have a strong desire to bypass and come to premature conclusions and shift to the right side of the U. As we attempt to breathe life into Theory U and emphasize its purpose to be a Way of Being – reconnecting to the more authentic and higher aspects of ourselves – we need awareness of the “groan zone”. You are reading the fifth article in a series of nine. The series aims to assist you to dance Theory U. The use of “breaths” is a metaphor for the components of the Life Pulse. The Life Pulse is a cosmic principle governing all of life in the Universe. The Life Pulse consists of sequential phases of contraction, stasis, expansion, stasis. The first article invites you into our Guest House and creates a safe container. The second article shape-shifts “downloading” into a tool to gain more of Self. A listening space arises. The third article breathes life into the opening of our State of Being reason. The more of Self that is available establishes the “observing” and “curious asking” quality. The process continues with the opening of our State of Being emotion in the fourth article and we add “experiencing” to our toolbox. We experience in our physical body what we do with what happens to us and we sense through the group being. The diagram shows us where we are. This article covers the 4th of our 7 breaths. We prepare ourselves to open our will and to learn about the importance of delving deep inside of ourselves. This deep dive is necessary in order to discern and live the “groan zone”. The learning cannot happen through a teaching, it has to unfold through the magic of this fascinating triad of “witnessing, asking, experiencing”.   Overview of the 4th Breath The 4th Breath is, as all the other breaths in our series, a Life Pulse composed of an inward movement of contraction (green on the picture), followed by a moment of stasis (red on the picture and located at the inner edge of the U), gently extending in an outward movement of expansion (blue) and...
