Straight Talk About What You're Seeing in the Mirror
Don’t like what you’re seeing? You can shift this quickly with a little open-hearted "Re-view"..

* So, if you can be less afraid, attached, resistant to your own pain, able to flow with it, not take it so personally, and hang with it long enough to stop, listen, penetrate and get the message it’s screaming to communicate, it’s much easier to move through it so it can be transmuted back to source. Honestly, as unappealing as this sounds, as much as even I, as a counselor, have resisted going there, in all of my personal and professional experience, I have never found one other single way that works for permanently relieving pain other than facing and embracing and moving through it..

* Refusing to face and embrace what’s bugging us only prolongs the turmoil.
It simply doesn’t go away by itself. Don’t know too many people, even professional experts, who are willing to call this one for what it is.

* Are You “Response-able”?
Making the commitment to get real and get down to the root of what’s eating us isn’t necessarily easy. Yet, it doesn’t have to be hard or insurmountable. It all depends upon our attitude about it. For example, if someone, (maybe even elsewhere in this article) says to you, “You need to be Responsible”, it could bring up some defensiveness and resistance. “What do you mean, I’m not responsible!?” etc.etc.  But if you spell it and view it another way, like this: “Response-ability”, the word takes on a whole other meaning and energy.

“Responsibility” quite simply is “the Ability to Respond.”  If you can see it in this way, and get yourself into a frame of mind to understand that you don’t have to do everything at once, you can take on and even accomplish what you want and need to do, with confidence and success, incrementally. Then whatever you have to do can be done. Not all at once, but gradually, incrementally, consistently, over time.

* Most of us can embrace a SHIFT INTO SMALL CHANGES CONSISTENTLY. Whether it’s changing eating or thinking patterns, how you deal with stress or even how you feel about your body, yourself, it is easier when you tackle it bit-by-bit, bite-by-bite.

* SHIFT happens.
This is a very special time on the planet. Things are shifting rapidly now on many levels,
not all of which we can see or perceive. But, take it from one who’s been seeing it happen more and more, just making a decision to start may be both our biggest challenge and our best “magic starter” for getting things going. If you can trust that this is so, just DECIDE on whatever you want and start taking tiny steps in the direction of your goal, you are in line for a boatload of assistance in the process, from universal and spiritual levels; just part of the flow, the nature of the very changes that are going on on the planet now, as we speak.
