How do we break the habits of holding back or pushing? When my guides first started working with me, they had me review my day each evening with the intention of correcting in my mind my thoughts, words, feelings, and actions that were not ideal.
If I was involved in an interaction but was afraid to speak up, in my review process I would see myself speaking up. In a situation where I found myself impatient or pushing, I visualized myself feeling patience. Or if I was in a meeting and dominated the conversation, I created the image of a more discerning me.
My guides call the process of self observation and correction – staying current.
