I was asked to write an article on this topic for The Rural Womens Network. This is such an intriguing topic. When I think of Simplicity I think of a life that is full of possibilities, with an attitude of gratitude. The Macquarie Dictionary states that “Simplicity is a state of quality of being, a freedom from complexity, intricacy or division into parts.” It goes on to say that “Simplicity is an absence of luxury, pretentiousness, plainness, naturalness”.
As I write the above it reminds me on the NLP that I teach as we aim for each person to be in a place of calmness, peace, simplicity, without parts that sabotage their actions and to live in a state of quality.
For me simplicity is the ability to always go for what you want in life. It’s actually very easy to go for your goals and dreams. It’s just that we make it so challenging at times. When we get out of our own way, life is very simple and relaxing and rewarding beyond measure. Just imagine you have a body full of energy. Now imagine that you spend half or more of that energy every day telling yourself why you can’t do things. So now you feel like you are struggling through your day with only the small amount of energy you have left that tells you, you could possibly go for it. What a waste of god energy. And how complicated do we make things through that process??
By blaming our parents, children, partners, work, the weather, etc. for why we can’t do something we have now given away all our power to others and feel powerless to do what we want. Take your personal power back and SIMPLY do whatever it is you want to do…one step at a time. I made my life so difficult I got Lupus. A disease of the immune system. By simplifying my life I am now well. I have just finished documenting the whole journey and included lots of simple steps to eating, thinking, and feeling right and changing your life. It’s called Life After Lupus…Healing Your Immune System” and you can get it at http://mindpowerglobal.com.au/product/life-after-lupus-healing-your-immune-system/
One of the Prime Directives of the subconscious mind, which is 96% of you and runs your body, is that it works on the principle of least effort. That means we are designed to go down the path of least resistance. What path are you going down? How complicated have you chosen your life to become? What can you let go of or outsource to start living a more simplistic, stress free life?
The Universe thinks you are amazing. So let’s bring that ‘amazing’ out by opening the zip on our backpack that we so often wear, that is full of all our limitations and circumstances, and become lighter and more simplistic in moving forward. It’s a confidently calm place to be. I am happy to assist your journey if you have limitations to release. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
