how to get to the heart of the matter (3 of 3): breathe into it

Posted on: May 21, 2011

You know that you need to deal with the hard issues. But it’s not fun. Perhaps there’s an easy approach to it, eh? How about the idea that you actually don’t have to try? Here’s a little procedure:

  1. Think of something that really needs addressing. It could be an email or phone call that needs taking care of, or even a task you’ve been putting off.
  2. Picture it in front of you. Take long, deep breaths while visualizing it.
  3. Whatever image that comes up for you, imagine it getting smaller and smaller. As you breathe more deeply, let yourself get larger and more spacious.
  4. Know that whatever needs doing is already done. It’s in the past. All you have to do is step  over and do it, and it’ll nicely be behind you.
Really, it’s all about our frame of mind. Let it be simple – the work, much of the time, is in the avoidance. So try this technique out. Send me your results.
