When in Doubt; P.A.U.S.E. (Book Snippet 31)

It happens frequently that my clients’ come to a session with me, feeling deeply troubled by a ‘monster’ they saw on the beach (metaphorically speaking, of course). They described this monster in a lot of gory detail partly hoping that I would confirm how terrifying this beast was, yet partly hoping I wouldn’t. Luckily, when a bucket of water was thrown on the monster, it revealed its true nature; it melted away because it was made of the same sand as the rest of the beach. The metaphorical monster was of course an upset my client faced. The bucket of water was nothing more than awareness. There is great power in awareness: it can help us shift from victim land, where we react from fear, stuck in an old unhappy story — to creator-land, where we make choices rooted in love, rewriting our narrative.

  • Where do I feel it? (Notice what is going on in your body.)
  • What outcome do I want to produce?
  • What options do I have to get there?
  • What is my very next step?
