How can we create a different outcome by doing the same action?
“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.” -Albert Einstein
I believe this behavior is from a lack of consciousness that we continue to do the same thing over and over again, while getting upset with the results. It is very important to pay attention to our behaviors and the outcomes so we can adjust our thought process and behaviors in order to create a different outcome.
The same situation may continue to come up over and over when we don’t recognize and learn from it. When this happens it gives us an opportunity to make a different choice. Sometimes we push really hard up against a situation hoping to bring about change, only to settle into the same results.
With these encounters it is best to pause and look at the situation from your higher mind, digging deeper into old patterns and beliefs and see if it’s possible to create it in a healthier way.
If you notice that you are creating the same situations in your life that don’t work for you, it is time to explore what is happening inside of you. A change in perspective, behavior and your reaction can do so much more for shifting the outcome. It takes a fair amount of self-observation to change our patterns and thus creating a different outcome to a situation.
This self-examination isn’t for the weak of heart; it is for Warriors. It isn’t easy or fun to look at our dark side and then hold ourselves accountable for our actions. If we don’t self-reflect we will repeat our patterns and behaviors. Asking questions directed at our ego minds and little girl will give us the data needed to see how we are seeing things through a skewed lens. Once we see things clearly we are able to make the shift to our higher self. We cannot make the shifts through our ego or little girl (lower mind) because thinking through that lens is what got us into the situation in the first place.
I love it when I am in a mother daughter retreat and both the mother and daughter see how their behaviors have been playing out and causing havoc on one of the most important relationship they have in their life.
In all of my retreats whether it be the Individual Intensive, Mother Daughter or the Couple Retreats you will learn how recognize your ego mind, and stop acting out of your unconscious little girl to shift your beliefs.
