Awareness

January 15, 2013

In the first part of this series we discussed "Choice" and how you are always at choice. People make an estimated 15,000 choices a day and are unaware that they are truly fully at choice.
Wikipedia's definition is: Awareness is the state or ability to perceive, to feel, or to be conscious of events, objects, or sensory patterns. In this level of consciousness, sense data can be confirmed by an observer without necessarily implying understanding. More broadly, it is the state or quality of being aware of something. In biological psychology, awareness is defined as a human's or an animal's perception and cognitive reaction to a condition or event.
This is about increasing the level of your own personel awareness and the different ways that you show it. It can be about the words you say and noticing the impact of those words, it can be about actions and how you "show up" in your day to day life. Transformative changes are rooted in the awareness that you are at choice. It can be an emotional-mental-physical-spiritual choice, the difference is you now know it and can act accordingly.
Being at a heighten state has served me well because I can see much more clearly the forces at work. Now I have more information to make decisions that are in alignment with my values (more on this later).
This is a necessary stepping stone in changing your life, how do you know what you want to change if your un-aware that you are actually making choices.
Be awake for your ride and enjoy the journey!
