I woke up this morning from a vivid dream.
My curiosity Peaked…Hmm I wonder what that was all about.
I questioned…What prominent feeling did I have during the dream? (Knowing that my feelings would open the way for me to dive into the deeper meaning of the symbolic pictures…)
My curiosity spurred, I lay in bed and went through my dream’s theme, symbols and conclusion (the way I was taught by Jean Walters).
I delved into my dream with gusto, and because I did, I had a much clearer understanding of a limited feeling I’ve been working on.
My curious state led me to discover more about myself…a natural by-product of curiosity.
My morning would have unfolded differently (thus my opportunity for growth) had I squashed my curiosity with judgment. Yuck…I didn’t like that dream! Let me get out of this bed and try to forget all about it!!
My willingness to be curious about myself (which includes awake and sleep states) FREES me to explore who I AM…without judgment.
When I explore who I AM without judgment I experience liberation, which can be quite exhilarating, and fun!
Judgment shuts our door to progress (our FREEDOM) and curiosity opens our door to growth (our OPPORTUNITY).
Build on your curiosity and watch your judgments diminish.
THOUGHTS & QUESTIONS TO BUILD ON CURIOSITY
- I wonder what I can learn from that.
- If I were being curious right now…I would ask…
- What if I looked at this from a curious perspective, what would I learn?
- What is there for me to discover about this?
- If I were looking at this person’s behavior with curiosity I may feel, or I may think?
There is an inevitable shift that takes place within our thinking and feeling when we choose to focus on developing our curiosity (about ourselves and others).
As we build on our curiosity we let go of our judgments, and we shift from feeling bad about who we are and our life lessons, to feeling good about who we are and our life lessons.
Curiosity FREES us to be who we are and move through our life lessons with ease.
Over to you:
What shift do you notice after choosing to live in a state of curiosity?
How does being curious help you let go of judgments?
I would love to hear from you.
Thanks for taking your time to read my posts.
I appreciate YOU and wish you the Happiest of New Years.
