Be Like the Deer — Bound Into the New Year With These Tips

Look inside for the answers…

I discovered that the only way to reverse the false storytelling trends of the mind is to look inside yourself to see the source of your fear and remember that a belief is only a belief; belief is not truth. What follows self-inquiry in the process of healing is this: when you interact with others be like the deer. If you are unsure of someone’s intentions, check out the situation. Ask yourself if the dark, upsetting story you are telling yourself is true. Have you collected enough real present-time evidence? What emotion(s) are you feeling?

Now check in with the other person…

Your conversation might begin with, “I’m feeling ___X___ after hearing what you said about ___Y___. Will you tell me more so I can get your full meaning?” OR “When you did ___Y___ I felt ___X___. I don’t believe you were trying to hurt me, so can we please talk about it some more?”

The next crucial step is trust.

Listen carefully to what your partner is telling you and accept it as truth. If you still feel the difficult emotions from before you may need to ask a few more questions to clarify your understanding of your partner’s intentions. By now you should have enough information to dispel your fear-based belief and realize that the story your mind made up is not reality. This is a clue that something needs to change within yourself unless you want to continue hurting yourself with untruth.
