How conscious are you? (My daily intention)


When you’re feeling angry, do you think about what you are sharing in your anger? Do you consciously choose how you share it?

So much of what we do as humans is unconscious. Studies by former professor of medicine at Stanford University, Dr Bruce Lipton and his team, suggest that the unconscious mind is running us on its automatic pilot mode, 95% of the time!*

Their studies also show that most of humanity runs on 1% of conscious thought…

So, sleep-walking through life on automatic is a real thing. I think.

Which brings me back to My Daily Intention.

When I consciously choose what I want to create in my day, I have a better chance of staying aware and connected to my desire to create better in my world.

And then…

Life happens…

And I forget all about being conscious and intentional and fall into rote responses to my environment and what’s happening around me.  In that place, the unconscious decisions I hold about me, and me in the world around me, take precedence over what I know to be true in my life today — I’m okay. I’m safe. I’m loveable and deserving of joy.

To be conscious, I must choose consciousness.

To be kind, I must choose kindness.

Today, my choice is all about being kind and loving so I share only the joy I experience in being alive!

I believe in wonder. I believe we are all magnificent beings of divine beauty. I believe we can make a difference in this world, through every act, word, thought. I believe we create ripples with everything we do and say and want to inspire everyone to use their ripple to create a better world for everyone. I'm grateful you're here.

  1. It’s so hard to not react to our environment, and forget what we want to happen. Our minds aren’t very good at following instructions.
