Where Are You Putting Your Attention?

The power of our attention – really the level of our energy – defines our capacity for connection to self, others, and the Infinite

~Kate Griffiths

Recently, I found out that two family members have been seriously ill with Covid and in one instance it happened within two days of receiving the vaccination.  And something of deep personal value was shattered into many pieces by Benji who was in a hyper mood.  It was an intense re-entry after a blissful two-week break.  I did what I had to regarding the routine, mundane aspects of life – washing, shopping, cleaning, etc and I built in lots of space to grieve and rest.

And recently the other thing in my awareness has been the increasing polarisation on social media around vaccinations and all things LGBTQ.  So my sense is that you too may not be feeling fully settled one week on from “freedom day”.  I hope the following words from Julia Hollenbery, Hopi Indian Chief White Eagle, help.

This moment that humanity is living through can be considered a door or a hole. The decision to fall into the hole or go through the door is yours.

If you consume information 24 hours a day, with negative energy, constantly nervous, with pessimism, you will fall into this hole.

But if you take the opportunity to look at yourself, to rethink life and death, to take care of yourself and others, you will go through the door.

Take care of your home, take care of your body. Connect with your spiritual home. When you take care of yourself, you take care of others at the same time.

Do not underestimate the spiritual dimension of this crisis. Adopt the perspective of an eagle that sees everything from above with a broader vision.

There is a social demand in this crisis, but also a spiritual demand. The two go hand in hand. Without the social dimension, we fall into fanaticism. Without the spiritual dimension, we fall into pessimism and futility.

You are prepared to go through this crisis.

Grab your toolbox and use all the tools at your disposal. Learn to resist by the example of the Indian and African peoples: we have been and continue to be exterminated.

But we never stopped singing, dancing, lighting fires, and having joy.

Don’t feel guilty for feeling lucky in these difficult times. Being sad and without energy doesn’t help at all.

* Resilience is resilience through joy!

You have the right to be strong and positive. You have to maintain a beautiful, cheerful and bright posture.

This has nothing to do with alienation (ignorance of the world). It is a strategy of resistance.

When we walk in the door, we have a new view of the world because we have faced our fears and difficulties.

This is what you can do now:

– Serenity in the storm,

– Keep calm, meditate daily,

– Make a habit of encountering the sacred every day.

Demonstrate resilience through art, joy, trust and love.  These words spoke to me because the Hopi Indian Chief is asking us to use discernment and to find our own answers by going within.

More than ever I feel that we are being called to come together and so create a ripple effect that can support humanity.  This is only possible if you allow your feelings to be fully present.  In so many branches of psychotherapy, the focus is on labelling, analysis, and dissection with the impact of removing yourself from the immediacy of the feelings.  With inner knowing comes the awareness that we are both wounded and whole.

Some call me the coaches' coach. I work with visionary leaders doing world work who are really good at what they do but haven't found their sweet spot yet. I help them unlock their whole selves by learning to build their intuitive muscle and so create more meaning. Ultimately this enables them to move into expanded awareness and the realms of higher consciousness. This is deep work because it requires you to embrace your shadow so you can discover the gold that is hiding there. You have both masculine and feminine energies within you but somewhere along the way you learnt to rely more on one more than the other making you either more of a "prover" or a "pleaser" Working with me you learn to access both energies so you can increase your presence and enjoy greater influence and visibility. Since 2008 I have pioneered an approach that integrates spirituality and business using Colour by blending the esoteric and the practical. I have found that it can transform every aspect of your life and enable you to develop the tools you need to ride the waves of adversity, you will experience in life. If you want to understand how colour can help then why not read my book Colourful Boardrooms. At the very least it will help you discover what type of leader you are. In 2018 I realised that I wanted to help change the story for the leaders of tomorrow so I set up Colourful Classrooms, a social enterprise, and have gone into schools and communities with programmes to support teachers, parents, and students to have better emotional health and wellbeing by building their awareness around what makes them feel more resilient. In terms of where I hang out:I tend to hang out on LinkedIn, so do connect with me there if you want to continue the conversation. And at the moment I am trialling a new social media platform MeWe which has the feel of the "village green" and to show my support for the stop hate campaign.
