As professional who helps clients move in multiple disciplines — real estate broker, yoga teacher, coach — I have noticed that how people move in one area of life is how they move in other areas.
I often like to go to lunch with a new real estate client. How they order lunch tells me how they make decisions.
When I observe a couple interact, I can tell how the entire process will unfold, who makes the decisions, and who is really in charge.
I can tell where a coaching client gets stuck in their business or life based on the lead up to our initial call.
In a yoga class, I can tell even before we start moving how people will move on their mat. How they move on their mat tells me how they move through life.
Life is a mystery, not a secret.
To solve the mystery, we must hone the skill of reading and breaking code.
Specifically the code of patterns.
All of life unfolds in patterns.
The seasons of nature.
The movement of the planets around the zodiac.
The patterns of how a tree grows.
The lines on a leaf.
Just like nature, human beings have patterns.
Our patterns of thoughts and behavior dictate how we breathe, which influences our physical movement.
Thought and behavior patterns also dictate our actions, our decisions, and direction in life.
Breathing patterns influence movement and emotions.
Movement patterns influence emotions and create the conditions for illness, injury, wellness, fatigue, or energy.
Patterns are the secret to decoding the mysteries of life.
Unlike the patterns of nature, many of our human patterns are not fixed; we have the power to change them.
We attain this power by learning to decode the patterns around us and within us.
The patterns we don’t see are called habits.
These patterns run our lives, until we see them.
Once we see the pattern, we have the power to interrupt it, to code a new script and establish a new pattern.
If you want to take control of your life, learn to see the patterns. Get support in seeing what you can’t see.
