In Access Consciousness, we talk about how 98% of your thoughts, feelings, and emotions don’t belong to you. This is the tool called “Who does it belong to?” and it is one of the go-to tools of Access Consciousness.
How much have you decided everything you think, everything that’s going on for you, must be yours because you can think it and feel it?
What if you’re just really aware of the world around you, and you are picking up on the thoughts, feelings, and emotions of everyone else? Not everything that’s in your head and everything you sense in your body is yours.
When you wake up in the morning, and you’re stressed out, and you wonder why you can’t change it all day, it’s because it’s not yours.
If it’s not yours, and you’ve bought it as yours, you can’t change it. Dr. Dain Heer, author of “Being You, Changing the World” says that you as a being are inherently joyful and happy, and when you’re not joyful and happy, you’re not actually being you.
How many of you have spent your entire life trying to change something that’s not yours? We spend so much time asking how we can change things rather than simply asking, “Is this mine?”
When you’re not willing to have the point of view that it’s not yours, you automatically go into wanting to fix it, and then you are back to where you started.
Distracting yourself from an awareness is not the way to let go of it. It will just show back up again another day.
“Who does it belong to” is about understanding that it’s not yours. There’s nothing you need to distract yourself from. It’s just not yours. That doesn’t mean you won’t be aware of it.
You cannot change awareness. You can only change where you bought that it was yours.
When you’re surrounded by drama, and when everyone is freaking out, how do you actually be you without going into it? Ask yourself, is there anything I can change with this? You can’t take on everyone’s pain and suffering to fix it for them. It’s their choice.
When you have the point of view that you need to help or fix someone, you’re not recognizing that they’ve made the choice to create that. “What choice did they make to create it?” and “Is there something I can contribute to changing it?” is a totally different point of view.
If you’re willing to have that place in your life, then you can recognize when there’s not anything you can do, and that caring is actually the willingness to be there for someone and be there if they need you without the point of view that you must help them.
Everything that shows up in your life is based on a choice that you’ve made, and you’re always one choice from change.
As soon as you buy a point of view as real and true for you, you are going to be at the effect of it.
Wherever you are with your business or your life or what’s going on in the world, if you start buying into the point of view that your business is going to tank, that you’re going to lose your job, or whatever it is you’re worried about, try the Interesting Point of View tool.
When you ask, “Who does this belong to?” and say, “Interesting point of view I have this point of view,” then you can ask, “What else is possible?”
Just because everyone else is suffering, does that mean you have to?
