In the process of guiding each person, it was clear yet again that the power of these processes begins in our power to notice. Pivotal moments for people included: a stiffened upper lip holding back grief, a missing arm on a figurine, a carried chair, an empty chair, a childhood memory, a look in the eye, and more. Each one, out of context, means little—but in that moment for that person it was an opening to their transformation. In a world that often feels like it is rushing along at a maddening pace, one of our greatest gifts to the people we work with and live with is to notice what may otherwise be overlooked. We are more likely to notice the often subtle openings for change when you allow ourselves to be radically present. In those moments, you can set yourselves free to explore what else is possible and make new choices. Where can you invite more freedom today?
