DAY WITH A HOLISTIC COACH
It was a
Saturday morning in the middle of spring when I woke from my sleep feeling
lethargic, low on energy, alone, lost, and bored, indecisive, just not
knowing what I wanted to do. I made a coffee and sat on the deck enjoying
the breeze and feeling the heat of the sun starting to rise. After a while
I turned on the T.V to watch a movie. The movie seemed to keep me there
for some reason. Not knowing why, I watched until the end, in which I
started to feel emotional for some reason.
“What was going on?”, I asked myself
“Will I just go with this, or shall I resist and snap out of it?”
I chose to just be with how I was feeling. I went downstairs and took
to my neighbour some things I had said he could have, as I no longer have
a use for them (Letting go, downsizing). When this was finished I decided
that I was going to spend the day allowing my feelings to be with me and
see where this would lead. At that moment, a voice inside me said “GO
CATCH A BUS SEE A MOVIE”. From there I said “YES” and
decided this is what I would do. Then guess what! My mind started to say
“you cant do that, you have to do this, you better find out what
time the movie is on, is there a movie you want to watch, or when is the
bus going to come, will I arrive in time to see the movie, what time will
the bus be going back home, will the movie finish in time. STOP I SAID!
STOP ENOUGH! Does it really matter about all of what my mind was saying?
Is all that important? NO!! The most important thing was, that a little
voice had spoken and I was going to act on it without expectations, judgements
or any other conditions we like to put on ourselves. In that moment I
grabbed my keys and walked down the road to the bus stop. While walking
to the stop that little voice spoke again “OBSERVE YOUR DAY AND
EVRYTHING IN IT” “Hmm” I said, “Yes I will do
that”. After a short time the bus arrived and I jumped on and sat
down. As I looked around I saw a wide range of people doing lots of different
things as they sat there going about their own journey. After about 7
stops into the journey an elderly lady with a young child (about 3-4 years
old) stepped on the bus. Instantly I was drawn to watch them. Why?, who
knows, I just observed. The little girl handed the driver some money and
asked for a ticket which he then gave to the child with some change, the
energy between the 2 was like an instant repour, the lady did the same.
Then walking down the bus the girl and lady went to sit down in a set
of 4 chairs where they face each other. I noticed a lady sitting in one
of the chairs already when the little girl just walked up and introduced
herself, then asked the lady her name. The lady replied and the girl and
this lady started to chat away as if they had known each other for awhile.
A realisation came over me IMAGINE IF WE WERE ALL LIKE THAT LITTLE GIRL.
I questioned myself and said what do you mean? Well she was just open
to being herself. ‘Wow how awesome” Maybe I could connect
back to that part of myself. The mind again started to chatter when the
little voice appeared again, remember today is about OBSERVING, JUST OBSERVE!!!
