November Idea of the Month

This month we are talking about breaking habitual, destructive cycles or patterns of experience.

We have all had the experience of the same thing happening over and over to us. The same problems in various relationships. The same problems at different jobs. The same problems with money and paying bills.

Why does that happen?

The patterns of these problems are in our subconscious, and they repeat over and over because that's whats in there! The subconscious has no volition of its own. It cannot have a new thought to change these patterns. It just continues what it knows over and over. It is up to us to CONSCIOUSLY to break those cycles. It is up to us to recognize harmful patterns and put a stop to them.

We do that by refusing to continue to think and behave in the same familiar pattern. We stop the escalation of a fight. We stop the rehashing of an issue over and over. We refuse to give a habitual pattern the energy to perpetuate itself.

It may not be easy to stop a life-long pattern that is deeply engrained in our subconscious. That's why habits are hard to break. But the only way it will ever happen is to become conscious of them. Stop them in the moment to the best of your ability and little by little, you will be changing your subconscious and giving it a new pattern to establish. One you actually want!

Share your comments and thoughts.

Until next time, Namaste
