WOW, I sure enjoyed our recent January Activation!
It went well, and it was enlightening for me to interact with those of you who participated (thank you)!
I got a great question during the Q & A that made something I’d been considering even more apparent.
It’s the importance of developing an open mind.
It’s the very first step, even before learning about the Open State and how to be in it.
We need to get out of our own way so that we can take advantage of what the Open State offers.
(If you were on the call, you heard me announce a February blog series about the Open State, but this made me realize I first want/need to write awhile about an open mind. So here we go!)
Can you let go of what you think you know and open your mind wide to all the possibilities?
An Open Mind
I’ve been developing my magical thinking all my life, really. I didn’t think about it that way at the time, but that’s what I was doing. It’s perfectly natural to me.
It’s so natural, that I’m coming to the conclusion that magic is the new normal: Many of my friends live that way, as do many of you.
If the idea of an open mind sounds or feels foreign to you, know that you can develop one deliberately.
Learning – Not!
And it’s not so much about learning something new. It’s more about UN-learning what you think you know.
UN-learning all your limiting beliefs.
Believing – Not!
And it’s not about believing in magic and miracles.
It’s not about believing in anything!
It’s about letting go of beliefs and being willing to open to the possibilities!
Then you’ll be not only more able, but also more motivated to embrace the Open State which is an expanded way of perceiving and experiencing (and the state from which you can easily facilitate magic and miracles).
A Foundation for Emergence
In many ways, an open mind is the primary foundation of Emergence. But to be more accurate, it’s more of a non-foundation, since unlike most foundations, it’s an undefined element.
Rather than being “solid”, it’s malleable and always changeable.
That’s the beauty, the magic, and the fun of it.
In the world where magic is the new normal, you get to make it up as you go. (Stick with me and you’ll “get” what this means. ;-))
A New Mindset
So a truly open mind allows for a new mindset where your perspective remains fluid.
It enables you to open to the possibilities:
• Of the process
• Of the results
• Of reality
It may not be what you think it is — in fact, it’s probably not!
Your open mind will be much more open to possibilities than is the (old ;-)) norm.
So, are you open to becoming more open?
If so, keep an eye on this space.
In upcoming posts I’ll be presenting some new models to play with that will help you open your mind even more than it already is.
