Got a moment?
Pretty much any person I work with or have in one of my classes discloses to me that “hecticness” and absence of time are at fault for a lot of their interior pressure and beat.
Not. So. Quick.
I’m not going to invest a huge amount of energy It business mind in this. You and I both know superior to that. We should do this…
“Occupied” has a vitality about it.
Give it a shot. “I’m so occupied.” “I’m so occupied.” “OMG, I’m soooo occupied.” Feel it. Let’s assume it. Be it. Notice what occurs in your body. Ugh.
Obviously, you can embed any vitality that doesn’t serve you here: “It’s hard” or “It won’t work” are two of my top picks for harm, letting ourselves free, as well as withdrawing when we’re frightened.
Presently take that vitality to your partner. To your children. To your accomplice. Supportive?
It’s not your “flaw”. It’s a default. An extraordinary spot to rest. Marvelous spot to “look at”. Yet, back to occupied…
Occupied is a joke.
It causes us to feel great. Significant.
It gives us a reason to state “no”.
It can shroud our dread of showdown or disillusioning another person.
It is a concealing spot. A cop out. A scape goat. An unavoidable vigorous prescience. An impression of our powerlessness to state “yes” and “no” to the correct things.
Occupied is distressing. Also, it’s infectious.
Give it a shot for yourself. Think about your adaptation of “occupied”. Think about the story you tell about it. How frequently you recount to that story. Who you tell it to.
The most risky individual to recount to that story to is obviously… ourselves. The more we tell it, the more we trust it, the more we typify it. We become “occupied”. Welcome to the twirl.
I watch this consistently. I find a good pace say that the thing among them and their fantasies is “occupied”. The thing among them and being a decent pioneer, getting more rest, working out, dealing with their body, in any event, eating great nourishment, having a superior marriage, giving input that could change a real existence, acquiring new business, whatever… is occupied.
Occupied has a great deal of intensity. Furthermore, what’s most exceedingly terrible is that we feed it. We are the cause all our own problems with regards to “occupied”.
Consider the possibility that it’s less difficult than that. Imagine a scenario in which we could make occupied our. companion?
Imagine a scenario in which occupied was only an absence of essence, expectation, and prioritization.
Imagine a scenario in which, you’re not really occupied. Yet rather missing nearness, directly here, at the present time, at the time.
Also, imagine a scenario where this hecticness and absence of quality is just concealing your clearness and insight for the right “yes’s” and “no’s.
Inhale and consider it.
Nearness and goal are the counteractants to occupied.
Breathing mends occupied.
A strong “yes” or “no” merits a hundred foggy “yes’s”.
Point of view, needs, and qualities explain and tame “occupied”.
At the point when we really become friends with occupied, we can dismantle it and make it work for us.
“Occupied” and “absence of time” are setting down deep roots. We need to show signs of improvement at driving our vitality through them, coming clean, esteeming our time, and cooperating with them. We need to show signs of improvement at being available and deliberate in our lives. What’s more, we need to tune in.
I had a customer years prior who was occupied, occupied, occupied. So occupied, individuals saw it frightening as around her. They would not like to draw in with her. Also, they’d never approach her for bearing or backing – she had an enthusiastic power field around her that said “Ease off, I’m occupied”.
At the point when we penetrated down to what her relationship was with “occupied” – she discovered it was a defender for her. Being occupied constantly saved her free for saying “no” and baffle individuals who she would not like to spend time with or work with. It likewise caused her to feel significant in her activity. The issue was that she so become tied up with her story that she had completely typified it. She talked quicker, wasn’t completely present with individuals, was experienced as aloof, and she didn’t feel better. Occupied really showed itself in her physiology.
When she got legit and clear about what occupied was about for her, she had the option to band together with it, rather than opposing it or utilizing it as a “bat”. She completed 3 things:
She put forth a cognizant attempt to take at the time and focus on her physical body. This was vital. She likewise, at the time, checked in with reality… Is it accurate to say that she was going to kick the bucket? Is it accurate to say that she was really using up all available time? Was a tiger going to get her on the off chance that she didn’t complete it? (Unexpectedly, these are frequently the physiological reactions we have to the narrative of occupied.)
She put forth a cognizant attempt to be completely with somebody when they were conversing with her. Amusingly it required some investment, yet without the obstruction and inner gab, it was simpler and increasingly pleasant.
She made a cognizant (however troublesome) choice to disapprove of individuals when she would not like to accomplish something. She held it as a YES to herself. Amusingly, as hard as it might have been, it was such a great amount of cleaner to explore it along these lines, that she felt truly and intellectually better. The psychological vitality she’d spent, holding occupied to keep away from baffled, was hers once more. To improve things.
What is your relationship with occupied? Be straightforward here. Nobody’s looking. This is for you.
What does it give you? What does it keep you from?
What are the three things – or even one – that you sense would assist you with making more space? (Instinct is acceptable here, use it.)
What are the, pointless – in any event, depleting, things that you take an interest in that add to your vitality of occupied? (Tattle, not coming clean, keeping away from strife, working around individuals, TV, tarrying, and not dealing with ourselves are only a couple of normal ones.)
Discover a word that implies something to your spirit… If you somehow managed to supplant the word or sentiment of “occupied” with this new word, in what capacity may that change things? For instance: On the off chance that you were “intentionally” rather than “occupied” what might you do another way? On the off chance that you were “locked in” rather than “occupied” what might that do? There is gold right now. Delve in.
Imagine a scenario in which you could tame your occupied with some nearness and expectation. Imagine a scenario where making a stride back, breathing, and being amazingly deliberate with how you utilize your vitality and time, were the answer for occupied.
What if? What may you lose?
I’m not going to mislead anybody and state that “occupied” never sneaks in for me, it does. In any case, in those minutes, when I get that instinctive response, I’m speedier to go to it, love on it a piece, get present, sustain what should be supported, state “no” where I have to state “no”, and step into deliberate, wonderful, full, and intentionally. By decision.
Try not to get going, get present, come clean, pick deliberately, and go.
