For example, you notice your stomach tightening (reflecting an old story in which you feel you have to be in control), so you take a deep breath or two and activate a new story of trust that all will be well. For others it might be noticing you are judging another person, pausing and shifting to a stance of compassion.
What openings can you notice today, often when you least expect them?
What new stories can you develop that will allow you to harvest more from your life?
It is about catching ourselves in the here and now, noticing our old story emerging, shifting our frame/state, and enacting a new choice.
