Change is the only constant in life. Change can be welcome, or it can take us by surprise. Some changes are good, and others take a turn for the negative. However, it’s our reaction to change that makes all the difference. On occasion you might find yourself sensing change on the horizon or intuiting that something is about to happen.
Our subconscious minds notice so much more than we realize. We can predict changes in our lives if we pay attention to our minds and our bodies.
Here are a few ways you can notice changes in life and start to notice when changes are about to occur.
Your mind is a powerful thing. When you daydream, what do you daydream about?
Where does your imagination take you? Your imagination and the time you spend daydreaming tells you a lot about how your body is preparing for change. If you find yourself always dreaming of a better future, ask yourself what you can do to make that happen.
There are always changes we need to make in order to change our lives and accomplish our goals. Focus on your present self and your circumstances in order to see where changes can be made and what you need to do. By acting in the present, we can make our vision of the future a reality.
Your physical self can also help you enact change. Focus on what your body does when confronted with something new and exciting- do you get nervous and sweaty, or are you aware and engaged in the new circumstances. When your new circumstances become normal or mundane, your body starts to get used to it and those feelings fade. Noticing changes in your energy level can point you in the direction of change.
Your emotional life is also an indicator of change in your life. Think about how happy you are on a regular basis- are you content or just pushing through life’s struggles? Do you resent change or shy away from it? Our routine activities aren’t always exciting, but they can bring us a level of contentment and enjoyment that shows us that we are moving in the right direction. If you aren’t excited about something during your day, think about the changes you could make to add in a little extra joy in your life.
You are a catalyst for change in your life. As you move through your days, start to notice how your body reacts to and anticipates change. Change doesn’t have to be a bad thing or to be scary; it simply is the opportunity for us to learn about ourselves and go through life with intention.
