PRESUMPTIONS PREVENT CONNECTION and expectations rob us of the experience. Think about vacation spots, one place you have always wanted to go but never been. Visualize it. Focus on the details of it. Why do you want to go? How did you first hear about it? Will your preconceived idea about the place prevent you from actually experiencing it? BODY IMAGE. We all have an idea of how we want to look or present ourselves to the world, and this changes over time. Think about your style choices as a child, as a teenager, and as a young adult. Would you make those same choices now? Why or why not?PERSPECTIVE OF THE WORLD HAS CHANGED. We can look at a muscle-bound what we believe is a physically fit physique, but how do they feel inside?A PHYSICALLY RIGOROUS WORKOUT can certainly test our physical strength and endurance, but the true test of health and wellness is measured by our emotional state while in this physical space. What is the use of being perfectly in shape physically while having low self-esteem and criticizing and comparing our body to everyone else’s? On the outside, it looks pretty, but on the inside, the constant judgment and criticism is debilitating.LIFE LOOKS EASY WHEN MATERIAL COMFORTS ARE ACCESSIBLE, but the life lessons come from the challenges of making ourselves comfortable in the most uncomfortable physical circumstances.FEEL FREE instead of judged and insecure.IT TAKES AN AWARENESS of the surroundings to navigate the path to our destination. It's like being in a forest full of trees, or being in one of those mazes built out of bushes that every direction can look the same, without a reference frame for where to go. Maybe that's why we find so much comfort in making assumptions and using preconceived notions to determine our direction and make us feel as though we are navigating a familiar territory. THE WORK IS FINDING THE BALANCE between exploring with awareness without being influenced so much that our perception is immediately skewed, without allowing the assumptions and preconceived notions to prevent us from understanding or exploring the extent of the landscape. We Intelligently and consciously navigate through life, despite knowing the path ahead is often taking us into unknown territory. I BELIEVE THAT CONFIDENCE IS THE CURE — confidence in our ability and our intelligence. We confidently navigate through the unknown, believing that we are prepared for anything that comes along the path. Objectively observe our own thoughts to identify when assumptions and preconceived notions are undermining our ability to understand the entire landscape, not just what we see on the surface. Be comfortable enough in our vulnerability and confident enough in our ability to stand in this space with certainty, knowing that our strength begins with what we allow in this breath and this thought.The visualization and breathing techniques here will help you change your emotional state when life feels stressful and allow you to respond more to the circumstances in life rather than react to them. This connection that we make together has the power to change things. I'm setting the intention that this becomes a global energy. I've been working on a global movement for self-improvement. And I hope to inspire and empower you to do the same. My intention is to give you mind-shifting strategies that make you feel like your mind is a Zen escape room— a mental sanctuary— so that when things get challenging in the world, you always have a safe space to go, even if it’s just one breath at a time.
