Decisions are what we all have to make sometimes they are easy and at other times they are hard. Whether you are a stay- at -home mum or a CEO your decisions will impact others’ lives so how do you go about making the right decisions? The way that I do it is by checking a number of steps.
1. Who am I being when I make a decision, am I in reaction to individuals, the event or my belief system? Am I being the person I would choose to be if I was at my best? Any decision you make comes from who you are being so if you want to be a great decision maker you will need to master being in control of your being!
For example; let’s say the qualities that I would most like to embody are integrity, compassion, and honesty. Does my decision come from me being these things?
2. I learnt this from Access Consciousness and I hope that I can explain it so that you can get it. When you make decisions they either leave you feeling complete and light or incomplete and heavy. This does not mean that you take the easy option sometimes it is the difficult decision that leaves you more complete even though you now have to find the courage to action it.
This might all sound a bit woo woo however we are all made of energy even if we don’t acknowledge it and when we are in alignment with this we feel great and when we are out of alignment we feel bad it really is that simple.
For example; someone in your organisation or family has behaved in a manner that is not in line with your values. What do you do? As explained above wait a moment before rushing in and ensure that you are coming from the right place. Then sit with the issue and look at the options, you might want to write them down as this tends to get them out of your head and you will be more objective about them. I find it easier if I don’t think about how I am going to implement the decision at this stage (this just tends to scare the whatsits out of me). As you look through your options you will be able to feel that some of them make you feel very uncomfortable and heavy (this usually sits in my stomach) while others seem to leave you feeling lighter and better about yourself. Chuck the ones that leave you feeling heavy away and focus now on the others. When you make the right decision you are in alignment with your higher being, your soul, your core or whatever you want to call it. The way I see it is as if you have a straw connecting these aspects of yourself. When you are in alignment there are no kinks and energy can flow through it and you feel light and energized. When you are out of alignment it is as if there are kinks in your straw and energy cannot flow hence the negative feelings of being heavy and de-energized. Very technical I know! It might take some practice but I can assure you that if you do make the time you will find decision making in any form so much easier. Now all you need to do is find the courage to implement the decision. Good LUck and let me know how it goes.
