How to Get What You Need

How to Get What You Need

b2ap3_thumbnail_Fotolia_81461038_XS.jpgAs I sit to write this, I can hear that old Rolling Stones song going through my head — "You can't always get what you want...But if you try sometimes, you just might find — you get what you need."

This week's message was inspired by several friends who, after hearing the story about my ER visit (now eight weeks ago) asked me to share more information about how I was able to advocate for myself in that situation. It's a great question.

How DO we get what we need? How do we even KNOW what we need?

The answer is simple, but not easy. The first step towards getting what you need (i.e. being an advocate for yourself) is knowing what you need. That knowledge comes from being able to listen to your whole self, and all the ways your mind, body, and spirit communicate with you.

At any given moment, we may think that we know ourselves. The truth is — we always only know part of the answer. Self-awareness is a journey that never ends, because there is always more to learn!

How do we access "what we don't know that we don't know"? Today I made a video to share some thoughts about that along with some specific ways to cultivate powerful listening for our minds, bodies, and spirits.

I have used and benefited from the various practices that I'm sharing over many years — but different approaches work for different people. What practices help you listen and deepen your awareness? Please share your wisdom here!

P.S. Do you have a Rolling Stones "earworm" now? You're welcome! :-)
