4 Steps to Increase Your Consciousness

How to Increase Your Consciousness

This is something that I’ve becoming increasingly aware of especially during the pandemic where I’ve had time to become more aware of my thought processes and what’s going on around me.

It really does feel good to have an increased consciousness – in this week’s Prescription for Success I give you 4 steps to increase your consciousness –  watch the video and try the steps for yourself.

 

A definition of consciousness is an individual’s state of awareness of their environment, their thoughts, their feelings or their sensations.  This is a bit of a broad statement but there are people who are not aware of this. They just do what they do on a day to day basis and they don’t think about what’s going on in their head or their body. However, if you have a high state of consciousness then you can start to change your reality and the world.

4 steps to increase your consciousness

  1. Awaken – which is about pausing, being quiet and noticing what’s going on in your surroundings and in your body.
  2. Mindfully – to live mindfully which is about paying attention to things that happen. It’s about having a purpose for noticing things, being present having no judgements and taking no action.
  3. Intention – so set an intention of who you want to be rather than what you are going to do.
  4. Acting Consciously – when you act consciously you have that intention to make a positive impact and do your best for the world rather than just yourself.

So if you want to increase your consciousness try these four steps.

If you find anything that is getting in the way and is stopping you taking these steps or you have  beliefs or values that make this quite difficult then get in touch with me  and we can sort this out so that you can make more difference to the world and yourself.

So that’s me – living consciously

What Makes You Fascinating?

What makes you fascinating?

In a recent networking event, I was chatting with someone new and at the end of the 10 minute conversation he said to me, “That was the most fascinating conversation I’ve had for some time.”

I thought WOW! That’s amazing. I find my world fascinating and other people fascinating. I was happy with this statement as I thought I was showing my passion for what I do.

In this week’s prescription for success I discuss what makes us fascinating and how this can benefit us. Watch the video and ask yourself the questions below.

Why is it useful for people to find you fascinating?

It may result in people wanting to engage more, work with you more and connect with you more. On the other hand, maybe they won’t want to be with you and really that’s fine because you are being yourself and you are fascinated with yourself.  You’ll find that people will either say “Who do you think you are?” or they will want to know more.

Some people may feel that ‘being fascinating,’ might set up a lot of negative chatter in their head such as

  • I don’t think I’m good enough to be fascinating.
  • Who am I to think I’m fascinating?
  • No one else thinks I’m fascinating.

During the conversation in the networking event, we discussed why I left being a GP and how I felt that I was just scratching the surface in terms of mental health and helping people. I also found that I had lots of idea that others didn’t agree with. So I left and now I’m doing my NLP work and I’m in charge of my life.

We also talked about people on the autistic spectrum and having the skills to help with communication and also remove trauma.

We then moved on to eye patterns and how you access information in your brain, which I’m going to talk about in next week’s blog.

I was just being myself and being passionate about what I do and he said that he’d never discussed these things before and was fascinated.

Here is the question:

Is it ok for you to think you are fascinating? 

Because you are, everyone is!

You can use this to show others your passion and then if they want to connect with you they will and it may lead to more clients.

If you have any problems about thinking that you are ‘fascinating’ maybe you don’t believe in yourself or feel it’s not ok to show that part of yourself the just get in touch with me  because it may be holding you back in life and business.

I do a free 30 minute session and also teach people on courses helping them to be the person they want to be.

So that’s me

Dr Bridget – I’m fascinated with you and I’d love to have a chat with you!

Reasons for Being Authentic in Business and life

Reasons for being authentic in business and life

Showing up as you, showing your journey, who you are and where you want to go is really important in life and in business.

In this week’s prescription for success I look at the reasons for and the importance of being authentic whether that’s in life, business or relationships.

When we are authentic and people around us learn about our life, business and even relationships this  will either resonate with them or put them off.   Here’s the thing – if people are put off – you wouldn’t want to be anything other than yourself would you?

So if those around you want to interact with you in whatever way, and you are authentic and vulnerable then actually that is quite attractive to a lot of people. And if it’s not then they are just not the right people for you.

Furthermore, if you are authentic and being yourself then you will stand out and people will be attracted to you which has got to be good for business- do you think?

Both in life and business being authentic also allows you to share your experience. You’ll be able to tell people you’ve been there and you’ve overcome things can be really helpful for others.  It’s not useful to fake it because firstly it will be evident, and secondly you’re not helping anyone by putting on a front.

So if you have limiting beliefs such as:

  • “I can’t be myself,”
  • “I’m not good enough,”
  • “I’m a bit of an imposter?”

OR

If you can’t show up as yourself, you can’t be successful and there are things holding you back or you worry about what other people think then get in touch with me as we can sort this out very quickly.

So enjoy being you and I’ll see you next week

Dr Bridget – Just being myself!

Who am I?

Who am I?

Who am I?

I wonder how many times you’ve asked yourself the question, “Who am I?”

When you think about it why do you need to know?

Is it because you’re feeling a bit confused?  Or have you lost your direction?

Or do people treat you in different ways at different times.

It is actually a basic need that we have to know who we are.

In this week’s video a dig a bit deeper into this question “Who am I?”  Watch the video and ask yourself the questions below:

Our roles are not our identity

When we think about our identity we often think of simply our roles. For example, I’m a mother, I’m a gran, I’m just a housewife or I’m a business owner.   However, if you think about it you are actually a lot more than your role and it’s really important to know who you are.

Here is an example of some questions you could ask yourself once you’ve stated your role

For example – I’m a business owner

  • Who am I that is more than that?
  • Who am I that’s not a business owner?

I think I’m a coach, I’m a mum, I’m a helper, I’m a fixer, I’m a supporter and actually if you take it to it’s limit then I’m someone who enjoys every minute of my life.

Our identity is a whole system of our ideas and our experiences.

I was recently reading a book called Atomic Habits by James Clear and one of the take aways I got from that book was – what we do actually creates who we are.

So, if we are doing habits that create who we are is that who we actually want to be?  Moreover, if we are not who we want to be because we’ve got these habits that are creating that person, then let’s create the person we want to be and match the habit to go with that.

If you’d like to find out a little more about who you are and use it to go forward and be the person you want to be then book an appointment here. My phone number is 07973 635102 if you want to access a free half hour with me or you can book it on the above link.

See you next week
