Enjoy another tip taken from my new book: 5 Minutes to Stress Relief...How to Release Fear, Worry, and Doubt...Instantly:
Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) Explores 6 Logical Levels for Personal Transformation. I will often work with my clients in the lower three levels (Capabilities, Behavior & Environment) as they seek release from unhealthy perceptions and patterns of behavior that hold them back from the life they desire to experience, and when the client is willing I will invite them up to the highest level of personal transformation.
The behaviors you manifest in your life flow from the highest logical level of your spirituality and identity. When you make a shift to a higher level from the highest logical level, your spirituality and your environment with shift accordingly.
Simply put, your soul connection with God drives the rest of your ship in life. When you are disconnected from a relationship with God-your highest source of guidance, wisdom, and love-you begin to fragment the rest of your inverted pyramid:
· Your Spirit: The side of you as a spiritual creature, and your purpose in life
· Your Identity: Who you are specifically
· Your Beliefs: What you believe and value in life
· Your Capabilities: Your gifts and talents, and what you are capable of doing or accomplishing
· Your Behavior: What you think, say, and do
· Your Environment: Where what you do actually happens
When you have a fragmented pyramid, you begin to feel unsafe in certain realms of your life relationships, personal growth, sense of purpose, drive, and motivation. Two basic human needs are safety and connection. When these start to slip in your life, your stress hormones begin to have their way with you.
This week, focus on aligning yourself with your highest logical level for personal excellence: your Spirit. Your communion and alignment with the God of all creation directly impacts how you show up in your environment.
