Welcome, I’m Steve Alexander,
What is at your core? Are you looking for change in your life. Same patterns? Same old? feeling broken? and need fixing or just need someone to listen?
I have been exploring values a lot these last few weeks especially core values. I have been discovering, re-discovering my own. The intention is that I can lead a better life, but also to help others.
Many talk about wanting to live a better life, lead a better life have more control, direction.
Folk I talk to, share, they feel like, they have no purpose, no direction. There is a feel in their inner core of “lost”.
The search for answers.
I hear what people say and can resonate, but the true answers come not from me, but from within themselves.
My job, is to listen, and listen more. In that place of listening, I can hear more than just peoples words. I can hear heartbeat, life rhythm, soul talking, body talking and they tell me more than they are aware.
When we are still and quiet, we can hear ourselves. The problem so many of us have, is that our life is so chaotic and full of demands.
Many of us will put others first. Time to ourselves is a luxury. Many of us, want to switch off from life, escape ( however we do that)
Then we do the same again and again. “Same old…different day.”
Anchors and strong holds
It is through connecting and talking I can pick up on anchors that are weighing people down. I hear those core messages in their life which hold them back.
In life, we often hold on to these messages. Even though we think they are hidden, they can seriously affect our heart soul and mind like strong holds.
Some do not realise these messages lie like vultures eating away at us and feeding on rotten scraps.
Messages may come in the form of “feeling not good enough” “not worthy” “worth less” “unlovable” “stupid.”
A whole host of many more that you yourself could list.
What comes out of people, is due to these core deep roots. Some people hurt others because they are hurt, and others love because they know what it is to be hurt.
The good news is that you do not have to defined by these, nor do you have to carry these wounds and baggage. how good would it feel to be free of these?
Patterns of behavior
It can be so easy to repeat patterns in life because they are what we know, or the way we have always done them or we know no other way.
That does not mean to say that has to continue!
In school, or when we grew up, we had to learn things in a certain way. Some found this controlling in some ways giving little room for freedom of thought and expression.
As people get older, they get presented with options. Many do not get those options, and a certain way of life is forced upon them.
In society, many will continue a way of life just “because that is the way it is.”
It is possible that they do not have any reason to change and so they do not. I notice, that those who want to change often do not have the support around them and struggle.
Do you struggle with change?
It is easy to moan that we want change to happen yet expect it to work like magic. Truthfully something needs to happen in order to make that change happen.
What is it that makes change so difficult? – perhaps it is not knowing what the future may be, perhaps it fear?
If there was a leak in the house or the car broke we would get them fixed.
When it comes to our own mental health and well being, many of us are reluctant to get help!
A lesson from X men
A quote I heard in an x men film was a conversation between professor xsavior and a young Jean Grey.“You do not need fixing because you are not broken”
Sometimes it feels like we are , when the reality is, we are hurting.
