NUTS: Not Understanding True Self
Sometimes in life we base who and what we are on old outdated beliefs which were implanted in us by society, or by parental units, or simply by our own perceptions at the time. And sometimes, who and what we are changes...but we never change those old outdated beliefs, and so we live a life filled with fear and uncertainty. We are tired, out of balance, we don't take good care of ourselves and we feel ashamed, guilty or not quite right.
We are NUTS.
The opposite of NUTS is SANE: Self Aware Now Enjoy
When we become self aware, we can enjoy life. But only if our behavior matches our beliefs. But self awareness is the first step.
How to do that? There are so many helpful processes out there, ranging from the 12 steps to Byron Katie's The Work, to the Ladder of Inference to Fear to Faith. Which one you use depends on which one you resonate with. For example, I did not resonate at all with The Work, but I found the Ladder of Inference to be very helpful.
In future posts I will say a bit more about each of these processes, but for now, I hope you will find a way to experience SANE in your life, not NUTS. And if you want some help, I've got a full calendar of workshops and classes coming up to facilitate SANE. The next one is this Tuesday, March 14. See details and register in the store below.
