  • Ian weighs up that you're putting all your hope on this one strategy, and not realising the other option that you can do. 
  • Ian explains the goal of taking time off, to simply sit and open up to this funnel, to mentally understand what he was missing, what chances could be there that he wasn't seeing, and to broaden his mind. 
  • Ian clearly likes you to understand the power of journaling and envisioning the infinite possibilities is bringing you additional opportunity.

Are you ready, ready to release internal pain, to find confidence, clarity and direction for your future, to live a life of meaning, fulfilment and contribution, to trust your intuition again, but something's been holding you back, you've come to the right place. Welcome. I'm a Ian Hawkins, the host and founder of The Grief Code podcast. Together, let's heal your unresolved or unknown grief by unlocking your grief code. As you tune into each episode, you will receive insight into your own grief, how to eliminate it, and what to do next. Before we start, by one request, if any new insights or awareness land with you during this episode, please send me an email at info at the and Hawkins coaching.com. And let me know what you found. I know the power of this work, I love to hear the impact these conversations have. Okay, let's get into it.

Recently, in my group coaching programme, we were having a conversation about how you see the world. And at any given point, we have this massive amount of choices, opportunities and potential scenarios for your future. But how often? Are you pre determining that it has to head in this direction? That it has to be this way? I like Abraham Hicks describes it well, when when when they're saying are you humans have funny creatures, you. You say I want this in my life. And the universe says very well, here's 1000 versions of how it can happen. And and then we say I didn't ask humans, you say? Yeah, but it has to be this way. The Universe says very well, it will be that way. And then you humans say yeah, but it probably won't work out for me. And the universe is very well, I'll give it to someone else. Now, how often does it happen for you, when you're at this point of infinite possibilities. But you're funnelling every bit of energy into this one way that you think it's going to work out? Or that you hope it's going to work out or that you think it has to work out. And it's like a funnel, you're trying to squeeze everything into this small little gap. And then wondering why things are struggling. But what if you turn the funnel upside down? What if you realised that the point that you're at now is a certain clarity around where you are. And there's an opportunity for an ever increasing expansion of possibilities for what might be available to you. And one of my clients was talking about how they've been really sitting with that and thinking about that for the last couple of weeks, and how that he'd actually made a focus of taking time off, to just sit and open up to this funnel, this funnel opening, open up to a mentally see what it is that he was missing, what opportunities might be there that he's not seeing and expand his thinking. And really importantly, through this process, he was generally creating certainty of what he knew at that time, creating certainty of what possibilities were already already there and creating certainty in two ways of what might be possible. One was he was talking about well, it could be this it could be that like he was determining the some of the different possibilities, but then also asking open ended questions in the journaling process of well, how do I solve this? What's the answer to that? What other opportunities might be out there? And what that does is the unconscious part of your brain will start looking for solutions. The reticular activation system will start using that focus that you give it even the questions and start trying to find the answer trying to find the solution, that unconscious part of our brain that is just so powerful. So at the moment, are you at a point where you are restricting your thinking or you're looking to expand your thinking using this visual and this way of thinking of the funnel, turning the funnel around, instead of going into that all funnelling into that small opening at the bottom of the funnel, turn around and instead be in that place of expansion of the widening at the top of

Ultimately, what are unlimited possibilities? They will change everything. And in most importantly, prioritise the journaling, take pen to paper, type it out, keep an audio journal, a video journal, whatever it is, creating that clarity will put the certainty in your brain to find the solutions. And also to acknowledge what you've already achieved. Journaling will absolutely change your life. That is the power of it. And I'd love to hear from all of you. What's worked when you've journaling when you've journaled what, what have you been able to manifest or any questions that you have around journaling and anything else you want to know I do have a journaling process that may be beneficial to you. So you got some structure for that as well. Let me know we'd love to hear from you.
