Stuck in a rut lately?
Feeling your creativity is blocked or stifled?
Same old routine producing stale results?
Most people are creatures of habit; to deal with daily stressors we create a sense of comfort through predictability.
That's understandable, but routines can hold us back from achieving new levels of health, wealth and connection in life because they define, and in turn limit, our point of view.
Watch this week's 8-minute video to learn a technique for jump starting your perspective and your productivity: pattern interruption!
"I need help getting a fresh point of view."
This week Source spoke to me and said that she would like to send you a holistic stress management technique for the week, and in particular, she wants you to focus on "pattern interruption."
Pattern interruption -- this is also a lovely Google-ing point if you want to learn more about this technique in particular -- is really great for challenging perceptions and behavioral patterns simply through changing one tiny thing, especially if the thing is environmentally governed.
In the picture of me right now, do you notice anything that looks slightly different? Is there something different in the room or different about me that you're not exactly used to?
The pattern interruption that I'm demonstrating to you right now is wearing bright red lipstick.
That can really shift your perspective about what I'm saying or how you feel about listening to me, because I've changed one tiny aspect of an environment that you've been used to: "Yay, it's the dojo! Oh, it's Victoria, saying blah, blah, blah, blah. She's so cute and sweet, and ... red lips. Oh, my goodness!" LOL!
What kind of association does red lipstick have for you? Do you notice how you feel different about me seeing this?
This is just one example. For the ladies, wearing red lipstick is a pattern interruption that you can shift the way that your perceive yourself, you entire day, how you make decisions, or how you feel about a certain thing.
I've heard of one lady who always wears bright red lipstick whenever she's getting ready to pay her bills, because she feels more confident and sensuous and romantic in that stressful and boring situation, cutting checks and reviewing statements.
It's about shifting how you feel.
For the guys, it could be getting a straight razor shave with the hot towel at a proper barber shop. "Oh, it feels so amazing!"
Another one that's universal for pattern interruption is having an at least one minute dance break.
If you are studying for an exam or perhaps you're working hard at work you're just coding, coding. (I code in HTML. I know it's ancient, but it works.) If you get into the zone at work, periodically get up and give yourself at least 60 seconds of dancing.
It can shift the way that your perceive what is happening around you.
In fact, a pattern interruption can activate your creativity in a whole new way. It an bring up new solutions, because what was expected in the environment has shifted.
When you shift what is expected, everything changes.
I'm hearing the oracle cards calling in the energy this week right now.
The deck that came to use is Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards, so they are some lovely feminine energy.
I'm going to practice pattern interruption again and send you bright blue, so that we can have more stronger throat chakra energy communicating this with you.
Let's see. What do the guides have to say about shifting your environment to shift how you feel?
What matters most is how you feel, and one great way that you can manage that, even going into some feng shui: moving a chair across the room opposite from where it normally is, or moving your desk around, shifting where your computer normally is facing, or putting a scarf over your chair or your favorite t-shirt in where you have to sit very often.
It can completely change the way that you feel from a level of stress, anxiety and overwhelm to comfort, humor and curiosity.
Angels, what would you like us to know right now?
The oracle cards for this week are two Egyptian #goddess Maat and Bast, encouraging us to maintain our inner #balance and #independent point of view. Don't let work or people water down who you are this week. Full reading on #youtube at http://youtu.be/niRCR7XzHC8 ????????✨ #beyou #health #selflove #respect #inspiration
Wow! Two cards of Egyptian goddesses came out: Maat and Bast.
Okay, Maat who is the Egyptian goddess of fairness, and Bast is strength and independence.
Okay, first off, Maat's message: "This situation will be handled in a fair and just manner."
When you're doing pattern interruption, it's balances a situation so that you are not solely externally focused; you're balanced because you're remembering how you show up, how you feel, and how you are framing the situation.
Health is a balancing act, so it's important to do things that inspire you to become a more balanced wholly integrated individual. Pattern interruption is a powerful tool for that.
Then Bast is saying, "You're independence is a foundation for your strength and success."
And here's where we're going to end. You'll want to practice pattern interruption to keep your point of view fresh and detached from what's going on around you.
It's important to not take things so seriously and not take things so personally.
If by moving your environment around or by wearing a loud lipstick or wearing your favorite pair of earrings or jewelry or a bright watch, or a tie that is fun or confident, it can really help assert your individuality, so that your energy doesn't get lost in the day.
Got it? Try it out!
