Change Your Patterns

Hey, welcome back to

your Daily Mindfulness.

In today's session, we're going

to explore changing our patterns.

So we all have patterns of conditioning,

various scripts that direct our lives.

If X happens, then do Y.

A lot of these are subconscious and

they're almost like psycho-emotional

algorithms that tell us how to

behave, how to think, how to emote.

But many of these scripts were put in

place for good reason when we were young.

So imagine a child, he hears his father

come home after drinking and out of fear

he hides in his room to protect himself.

But if in an adult, he hides

every time he feels fear, he can't

grow in the same way he needs to.

This is an example of a script

that once served us, but is

no longer serving its purpose.

Sometimes we need to let go of these

patterns, but it's important that we have

an honest conversation with ourselves

and first ask permission from the

part of ourself that wrote the script.

So you might say, I see you.

Thank you for trying to

help me in this moment.

Thank you for telling

me what I need to do.

I know you're still trying to

help me, but I don't think this

is the right response right now.

I appreciate you being there when I

needed you at a certain point in my

life, but I'm not that person anymore.

I'm ready to become someone new.

I'm wondering if you can help me do this.

So in this way, we're having a

conversation with the subconscious

part of us that still has a positive

intention, that's trying to help us,

that's trying to serve us in some way.

It's not trying to make your life

miserable, even if you feel like the

pattern or conditioning is frustrating.

It's just running an old script.

And before it will let go of

that, it needs to know that

you see it, that you value it.

It wants to be your ally.

And so when you treat it in that

way, when you let it know what you

need, it's much more likely to get

on your team and help you move in the

new direction that you want to go.

Be gentle with this part of you.

It is trying to serve you.

The more we fight it, the more we

resist it, the more it's going to come

up and say, no, no, no, you need me.

So letting it know that you see it,

that you value it, you appreciate it,

but want to use it in a new way is

the way that we can actually start

to rewrite these scripts, serving

the person that we're trying to

become, not the person we once were.

We'll talk more about

this in the meditation.

As always, thank you for your practice.

I'll talk to you soon and take care.
