Moving from Reactive Responding to Conscious Response

Moving from Reactive Responding to Conscious Response

  • Cultivate greater present-moment awareness in order to respond consciously to life events and emotions rather than simply reacting habitually.
  • Reactive patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving are usually subconscious conditioned programs that limit freedom and capacity for joy.
  • By becoming more awake to the present, you can slow down, step back, and make more skillful choices rather than blindly follow those reactive patterns.

Healing Core Childhood Wounds That Drive Reactions

  • Many reactive patterns in adulthood originate from core childhood emotional wounds around issues like abandonment, betrayal, criticism or abuse.
  • Use spiritual tools like inner child work, empty chair dialogues, ritual and breathwork to compassionately heal these past wounds at their source.
  • This stops you from subconsciously recreating childhood pains in the present by ending detrimental reactive cycles stemming from old trauma.

  • You co-create reality through intention, attention, and consciousness.
  • What you dwell upon or react to has tremendous influence on your experience of life.

Cultivating Openness, Gratitude and Embracing the Unknown

  • Approach each moment with an open, receptive mindset without strong expectations.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
