To Grow is to Change
As human beings we have a remarkable opportunity. We can either blindly follow the dictates of culture and upbringing—being who others believe we are—or we can partner with Life to bring forth the fullness of who we truly are.
If we choose the latter, we soon find we carry many beliefs and behaviors that, although they may have served us in the past, do not support us in our process of becoming. To grow we will have to change, and, as most of us know, change isn’t always easy.
Why Our Efforts at Change Are Often Ineffective
The reason change can be so difficult is because, rather than seeing ourselves as co-creators partnered with a loving Universe, we see ourselves as lonely strivers who must prevail over our obstacles and shortcomings through our own effort. We believe change happens through the force of our will, and we bring to it the energy of judgment, grasping, and resistance.
Ironically, this ego approach of judgment, resistance and striving is the very thing that holds transformation at bay. It keeps the old patterns in place, making them impervious to change.
“Patricia Pearce provides a powerful process to address the everyday issues that block the transformation we are seeking in our work or in our lives. She has a wise and calming presence and helps us to break down and move through challenges in our own way. It is a discipline I hope to return to again and again.” ~Abby S-H.
True Transformation Arises from Acceptance
Transformation isn’t something the ego can accomplish. It is a spiritual process which occurs naturally in the presence of acceptance, appreciation, and blessing.
If you think about your own experience, you will probably recall times when being in the presence of judgment had the effect of shutting you down and preventing you from expressing your potential. You will probably also remember times when being in the presence of acceptance and appreciation allowed you to thrive.
“Activating Transformation does just that from an arrestingly unique vantage point. Patricia’s wise teachings are presented in a highly accessible way (even to one such as I who is a bit dubious of on-line venues) and the stunning quality of the experience as well as its depth and power will surely activate transformation in you as it has in me.” ~Sue W.
So how do you cooperate with the natural process of transformation? Here are the three basic steps:
1. Setting Your Intention
You begin by setting your intention to open to transformation. When you set an intention it is like setting coordinates in your GPS. You don’t know how to get where you want to go, and you don’t dictate how the journey unfolds, but you know what direction you want to head and perhaps even where you want to end up.
2. Accepting and Blessing
Once you set your intention, you do something that seems counterintuitive and paradoxical, but which is extremely potent. You simultaneously accept and bless what is, and accept and bless what can be.
It sounds quite simple, and in a way it is. But it is also quite challenging because in order to do these two simple things you have to surrender judgment, resistance, and disbelief.
In the process, you begin to learn how to yield to what wants to naturally come forth, rather than strive to make it happen. Along the way, you begin to discover that you really aren’t in this life alone.
3. Become an Improv Partner with Life
Once you have entered into a stance of acceptance and blessing you then become an intentional improv partner with Life. You say Yes to what Life has given you, and you offer up your own creative response. By saying Yes. . . And. . . you enter into the dance of becoming, inviting the narrative of your life to unfold in ways you cannot dictate or control, but in which you play a vital creative role.
“My attitude and behaviors were remarkably influenced by my participation in Activating Transformation through the Power of Blessing. I was feeling restless about my work life and I was excited to find a teacher who used the words blessing and transformation together! The content and process is gentle and focused. I marvel at what I learned about myself and the power of blessing through this simple course.” ~Kelly B.
