Awakening the Consciousness Within
“I have no doubt whatsoever that most people live, whether physically, intellectually, or morally, in a very restricted circle of their potential being. They make use of a very small portion of their possible consciousness….much like a man who, out of his whole body organism, should get into the habit of using and moving only his little finger. We all have reservoirs of life to draw upon, of which we do not dream.”
– William James
There are many ways we wake up to the fact that we can perform with a new level of consciousness, to our full potential, and learn to tap into the reservoirs deep inside us we may not even realize are there. Some of us wake up listening to the quiet whispers from within, gently summoning us to find new ways to do familiar things; others need a two by four to smack them in the head. If we are aware and learn to pay attention, we will only need the light touch of a feather. If we are asleep and resist learning, a sledgehammer will be needed to teach the same lesson.
Either way, we are invited into opening our eyes to a possibility we may never have even dreamed of. The possibility of success defined in ways we never even thought of, and the opportunity to dive deep into reservoirs of potential that have been tucked away out of awareness until we are ready to explore them.
If you are finding yourself standing of the edge of something big,
If there is something deep inside whispering to you,
If you are beginning to open your eyes, look at things differently and move more than your little finger, and if your circle of being is starting to expand beyond your comfort zone….
Start by simply taking a deep breath in and out, and prepare yourself to meet the potential you, the essence of you, the power of the conscious, awake you. You are ready to journey down the road of consciousness.
I believe sport is a medium that allows us to express ourselves to our fullest potential and to actualize who we are really meant to be, who we are if we move towards all our potentials – physical, emotional, spiritual and cognitive. With an awakening consciousness, you may have already started to realize that your sport is simply a platform for your soul. That by reaching in to the depths of who you are, you may be uncomfortable, and in that discomfort is where the most learning and growth takes place.
Join me on the journey to yourself….where there is no finish line, score, or outcome…but simply the opportunity to be who you are an fulfill your purpose and destiny in life. The Power of A Conscious Athlete will teach you how to navigate this new course you are venturing out on. New skills and tools will be necessary, and things you already know and use may have to be given up.
Your journey will be your own and trust that what you need, you already possess. You simply need to look inside yourself to discover that.
You can choose to stay asleep and dream about your life….
….or you can choose to wake up and chase those dreams.
What will you choose?
