Being dyslexic I see patterns easily. One of the ways this shows up is seeing patterns in people. You know, the kind of behaviour patterns that can indicate some psychological problems. It means I don't have to see clients for months on end to get to the root of a problem. But recently I have expanded my pattern observation focus and have started to look at problems in society, asking myself one question. If there was one need all of my clients have in common, what would that need be?
Ever found yourself having the same kind of experiences you had with your ex, but with a new partner? It’s almost like dating the same person but with a different face. It often starts off so well, but it ends in the same way. Of course the common denominator is you, but when you met, you thought they were amazing and different and you might even have thought that maybe this time we have a chance. But then it ends up the same. This is an archetypal relationship.
Has anyone ever confessed to you that they have a ‘dark passenger’? I know I’m getting a little bit ‘Dexter’ here. If you haven’t seen Dexter, it’s an American TV show about a really nice guy with a dark secret that he is a serial killer that only kills bad people, which makes him kinds of likeable, weirdly.
Albert Einstein once said “The only real valuable thing is intuition.” So why isn’t everyone using it? The truth is most people don’t know how to listen to their intuition.
Albert Einstein once said “The problems that face us cannot be solved at the same level of consciousness that created them. What we need is a shift in consciousness”. I believe we are at the point of a real shift in our world right now. I am inspired and excited by it. As humans we have created some amazing achievements, but I feel we may have lost sight of our real purpose along the way - to be caretakers of the earth.
There is an epidemic of women who are reaching that age and haven’t found someone to start a family with. This is the generation who decided to get degrees, travel, work overseas, gain life experience and have lovers, knowing all along that ‘one day’ they would settle down. Not wanting to have regret over not having lived before becoming a mum, they lived life to the full to be able to share more of themselves as a fuller person and a mother. There was an abundance of boys and first loves were thrilling. Then suddenly all those available guys were married off.
Twitter is great for connecting you to people. My twitter @beckywalshcom just connected me to a man on the other side of the world. Dr Mark Rogers, a neuroscientist from Australia. Mark popped me a tweet asking me to take a look at his brainy blog. Well what else could I do, I love a good brain!
I’d like to rant to you about advertising, and face creams and the sense that anything old is past it and young is great. But I’d hate to be young now and fear getting old, with all these ritual beauty standards. In fact I would like to go back and tell my younger self a whole load of stuff about having fun and not worrying. I wouldn’t start with ‘wear sunscreen’.
What is it that triggers a memory when you first wake-up in the morning? A dream, something from last nights TV or something you read in a book. Or could it be your subconscious mind, reminding you of something from your past so you can rewrite your current thinking?
Often clients reach out to me at a point of ‘I’ve had enough’. The words ‘I have had enough’ imply that someone has reached the end of their tether, that it’s an end of a line that is negative, a sense of ‘I no longer want to go on’. I have always seen this as a breakthrough point in my clients, but never fully understood the facts and and science behind it, until reading Dr David Hamilton's book 'I Heart Me'.
