4 Roots 4 Rapid Growth: What Roots? What Growth?
By Michelle Bacso, MA(C)
Dreams lived. Hearts Fulfilled. That is what I have given my life to. What I’ve discovered is that the single-pronged approach doesn’t work. We get some results, but we aren’t fulfilled. Or we do what we love, but we’re broke. Or work is great, but my marriage is broken. Or I love my family but I hate my body. It’s time to align your entire being. It’s time to love your life. It’s time to stop putting your life in the someday category. Someday is now. While I do offer a comprehensive 12-week program on this very idea, I want to share with you some basic information about the 4 Roots that when given the right essentials and care, you begin to rapidly grow as a human being.
The physical world is distinguished as an essential element of where our choices exist, and where they do not. Separate from perception, we can see how actions relate to results. When I eat more fat, more fat is absorbed by my body. When I applied for jobs based on my interests, I was asked to interview for jobs that were interesting to me. When I look into people’s eyes, I can see more people looking into my eyes. The external world is our access to seeing what we have created, as lived! No guessing, no interpretation. It is, or it isn’t. I have two arms and green eyes. I do not have a cat. This is a powerful opportunity to be grounded in reality.
The mental, or cognitive world is our most critical access to having power and peace of mind. Most of the time, we are puppets to ourthoughts. Our thoughts feel like “the real me”, and we are compelled to react fully based on what our thoughts tell us. The good new is that you already know your thoughts are full of it most of the time. Your thoughts will tell you to sleep in, that most people are judging you, and I bet your thoughts say terrible things about others too. If our thoughts were on loud speaker, most of us would be mortified. Why? Because they’re automatic reactions, not the truth. How many times have you snapped at somebody and then almost immediately said, “that’s not what I meant”. And you really didn’t mean it! And notice, in other areas of life, you do believe your thoughts. They are the ones keeping you from finishing that project, fulfilling that dream, and creating those fabulous relationships.
How we relate to others and how we relate to ourselves is embedded in our emotions. This is closely tied with the mental world, however, new levels of freedom and joy are available to us as we expose, honour, and process the emotions that are tied to our relationships. Getting in touch provides a real opportunity to find your authentic voice in the world, and to begin singing your song.
Let it in. I invite you to be in the discovery of spirituality like you’ve never known it before. It is time to shed assumptions, presumptions, fears, and foes, and access the part of you that is greater than your self. Whether you connect to a religion or not, discover what's beyond you. The fundamental approach is to connect to the interconnectedness, connect to the whole. All is you. You are all. At that level of awareness, you can surrender yourself as a single purpose and live from your greater good. At the level of divinity, you will begin to accept your natural healing abilities- physical, mental, and emotional.
I invite you to spend a full day contemplating each of these roots in your own life. Observe where you've obtained self-mastery and where you have a loss of power or fulfillment. Begin taking yourself on! If you want to know more about the 12-week comprehensive program: 4 Roots 4 Rapid Growth, contact me.
Sending you a massive wave of love.
