Thoughts on Healing: Stepping Up



By  Rianne Collignon     10:35    Labels:,, 
Dear People,

We all want somebody else to step up sometimes, by which we mean take the role we want them to take: being their best selves. We often don't acknowledge where we need to step up, because staying small is comfortable and familiar. So today I'm going to write about stepping up yourself and being committed to who you are and a simple exercise that you can do see where you need to step up.

Stepping up
Stepping up is very important, because we all agree that living to your fullest potential is something to strive for. Even so, I don't often see people stepping up and evolving beyond their comfort zone. It's no wonder when we have sayings like: "Don't rock the boat". Change can be frightening and it's sometimes hard to move forward even when we know it's very rewarding.

Around the start of the new year or around their birthday is often the time when people start thinking about stepping up as they think on what they intend to do with their year. I prefer doing the following exercise a few times a year to clear a path for myself and invite you to join me.

Exercise; Stepping up
For this exercise you need to have a pen, some paper and some quiet time. I prefer to answer the questions on a different sheet of paper, so I can see where I need to step up the most, but you can write the answers down however you like. You can take around 5-10 minutes to answer each question.

Question 1: Do I need to step up in my self care?
Sub questions: Do I sleep enough? Do I eat the right things? Do I relax enough? Do I engage in activities that make me feel happy, make me grow and excite me? Do I feel happy, healthy and whole? Do I have time problems (not enough time, doing things at odd hours etc.) or planning problems (always feeling stressed, feeling behind on many issues etc.) that need to be addressed?

Once you have finished answering those questions, outline an affirmation based on your answers and/or make a plan to address what needs to be done. 

Question 2: Do I need to step up in my personal relationships?
Sub questions: Do I make my boundaries clear? Does everybody treat me how I want to be treated? If they don't, do they face consequences? Do I feel every bond is positive and if not, what can I do to make the situation better? Do I have resentments or problems with people that I haven't addressed?

Once you have finished answering those questions, outline an affirmation based on your answers or make a plan to address what needs to be done.

Question 3: Do I need to step up in my professional life?
Sub questions: Does my job still fulfil me? Do I get along with colleagues and clients? Do I like almost all aspects of my job and if not is there a possibility to change that? Do I feel like I'm growing towards something or am I at a dead end? Am I satisfied with my job? Do I like the environment I work in?

Once you have finished answering those questions, outline an affirmation based on your answers or make a plan to address what needs to be done.

Question 4: Do I need to step up in my spiritual life?
Sub questions: Do I feel that I'm on track? Am I still growing and evolving? Is there something I know I need to do and haven't? Have I've been exploring new area's? Have I forgiven slights against me? Do I have healthy energy? Am I committed to my Soul? Do I feel like I'm loved and cared for?

Once you have finished answering those questions, outline an affirmation based on your answers or make a plan to address what needs to be done.

After you are done, take a good look on where you need to step up and revisit your answers and your plan in 2-3 weeks. You will be surprised with how much energy you gain by stepping up. Remember, don't try to plan everything at once. Making changes costs a lot of energy too.

If you have any problem stepping up or feel like you can't keep to your plan, don't hesitate to contact me to discuss options. Want to share your answers from this exercise? Comment on the blog or on the Facebook Fan Page.
