What’s True For You?

September 5, 2022
Watt Coaching leaves

I’m from a science-based background.

I’ve always been very logical and reasoned in my approach to things, but I also find it fascinating to know how and why things work (or don’t!), particularly when it comes to the human body & mind.

However, in recent years, my spiritual side has grown too. 

Spirituality to me is the belief that things happen for a reason.

And that is because there is some greater power guiding my path…and everyone else’s too, for that matter!

It doesn’t matter to me what words you put round that and whether that force or power is called fate…or the universe…or God… or spirit…or anything else you can think of!

And I’m not particularly interested in any of the ‘rules’ that come with it either.

For me, it’s more about the overarching principle.

You see, by embracing the belief that there is some greater force that has my back, as it were, and really leaning into that over the past few years, it has allowed me to let go of the need to try to control things that are outside of my control.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t sit back and gaze around at the world thinking that everything I want will just fall into my lap!

Anyone who knows me will know that I’m a problem-solver and an action-taker. 

However, whenever we take action, there isn’t always an immediate resolution or answer to your problem.

Sometimes its a case of waiting for things to come to fruition.

And when you’ve been working so hard towards something, or you want something really badly, that wait can be uncomfortable at best and agonising at worst…particularly when you are someone that likes to make things happen now!

So my belief that things happen for a reason allows me to let go of some of that discomfort and lean into trusting that if it’s meant to be, then it will be.

And in doing so, I also let go of some of the really unhelpful consequences of sitting in that discomfort and not knowing how things will work out…

👉 Like worrying about what will happen and struggling to switch off, or be present, as a result.

👉 Like waking up in the early hours and being unable to get back to sleep, which in turn would leave me feeling exhausted and struggling to function properly.

👉 Or turning to food when I was sitting in the discomfort to give me that little hit of pleasure and make me feel better…but that ultimately lead to me overeating and feeling even more out of control.

👉 Or second guessing my decisions and wasting my precious time and energy going back and forth in my head… time and energy that I could be using much better elsewhere.

Now I’m not trying to sell you my belief system here.

Really, I’m not.

You might not believe that there is any such force or power and in fact you might think I’m talking a load of nonsense. And I can’t prove it either way.

But I’m also fine with that.

You see, you don’t have to believe it, and nor do I have to prove it, for it to be true to me, and for it to have all those positive effects on my life. 

So, what I am trying to highlight here is the power of your belief systems.

Because whether or not a belief is ‘true’ (i.e. it can be proven), if you choose to believe it, it is true for you and can have a huge impact on your brain and body, and ultimately how you show up every single day.

And that can be a positive impact or a negative impact depending on the belief.

So what do you choose to believe? And is it still working for you?

Or is it time to change things up?
