How to Wake Up From Groundhog Day

     "When we keep repeating the same pattern, divine intelligence is suggesting that we haven't yet mastered the lesson." ~ Tessa Sutherland, Free Spirit: Transcending the Ego

      In the 1993 film Groundhog Day, Phil Connor wakes each morning to find himself living the same day, over and over.  At first he responds to his predicament in an egocentric way, taking full advantage of situations and others for his own personal gain.  Eventually he falls into despair and tries to escape his predicament by making attempts to end his life. Phil finally accepts his life as it is and begins to use the knowledge he has gained for the benefit of others. In doing so he finds happiness and inspires a whole town.  

     This movie is a perfect metaphor for how many of us live our lives - stuck in the same patterns that repeat over and over again.  It is as is we are re-experiencing the same day.  And we will attempt to escape the stuckness by keeping ourselves busy, distracted and numb. But there is a healthier way. When we live from the heart, we wake up to how life can be different.  

    Here's a simple way to start living from your heart: 
  • Focus on your heart energy center - located at the center of your upper chest
  • Breathe as if you are breathing in and out of your heart center
  • Rest the palm of your hand on your heart center when you are speaking and thinking. This automatically creates heart-centered thoughts and words. Try it!  Its actually quite difficult to speak and think small when your hand is on your heart center.  

   Find out more about this process of waking up from your lower-self patterns associated with diminished health states, to experience higher-self living and greater health in Awaken Your Greater Health: How Energy Medicine Opens the Way to Healing Because as we saw with Phil, life lived from the higher self brings us happiness that is mutually-beneficial to ourselves and others.
