Have you given your MIND a Job Description?
We live and breathe by using job descriptions in the workplace to keep focused, clear on our responsibilities and also to work with others to stay in flow. We see this job description as intrinsic in keeping clarity of direction and purposeful intention.
Yet, on a personal level we don’t invest the thought or time to create a Life Job Description to tell the mind and ego what to do, how to focus and how you want your personal world to flow. Most of us realise that our subconscious mind is what ultimately drives us. It processes over 40 billion bits of information every day (compared to the conscious mind which can cope with around 40 things) and decides what to focus on or not depending on a fallback program. Obviously, the subconscious mind does the basic survival stuff. It makes sure your heart is pumping and oxygen is flowing. It helps us to avert danger and stay alive when under threat. It learns the road maps you drive to work and can switch into autopilot when you get stressed with other life stuff.
It has a clever RAS (reticular activating system) that acts like a beacon homing device and if it knows something you want, it will look out for it. A great example is when you are looking for a new car. If you decide on a red coloured Totoya Camry car, then your RAS will see a stack of them on the road because it has a little program to follow.
But, are we effectively programming our RAS with the deeper things in life we want? Many of us simply are not. We are not taught to do this and certainly don’t learn it at school or our day jobs. Are we setting clear intentions and establishing a focused chat with it to tell it what you DON’T want and what you DO want. That requires you to get very clear with your life objectives and the story that you want to create, then translating into a clear job description for the MIND.
You must be prepared to let old stories that are negatively impacting you and then create a new contract or new job description that you tell your subconscious and conscious mind. Then you are truly being effective and flowing with your life, just as you would with a new job where you had a clear job specification. We find this a powerful and transformative exercise.
At our 4-day healing holiday spiritual retreats, which happen several times each year in Bellingen NSW, we have a specific exercise and template on creating this new contract and therefore job description for your mind and life. We do several ceremonies and exercises to let the old outdated patterns release and then establish the new job description and lock this in using universal principles and indigenous wisdom. Our spiritual retreats are designed to help support your new life direction as our hope is that you will take away with you the tools and experiences that help you manifest a more mindful, happy and restorative life experience – giving you exactly what you need to reboot and invest in yourself.
