This week’s tool has to do with decision-making. A lot of people get challenged when trying to figure something out for themselves and this tool will (hopefully!) make it easier.
Here’s how you use the tool.
Let’s say you’re trying to decide between buying the red car and the blue car.
First, simply close your eyes and sit still for a few moments. Take some long, slow, cleansing breaths.
Next, hold both of your hands out, palms up in front of you as if you were gently cupping a little water in each hand. These two hands are going to become your tools.
Decide which hand will represent the blue car decision and which hand will represent the red car decision. In this case, we’ll say blue is left and red is right.
Now, think about the question at hand – “Which color car will make me the happiest?”
Take a moment to pay attention to your hands. Because you’re intending for your hands to be the barometers for this question, you’ll receive changes in this area to help you understand what is best.
Perhaps one hand will get a little warm, heavy, cold, tingly, itchy, or maybe even a fly will land on it. Maybe you’ll feel like one hand kind of disappears or that you’re totally drawn to look at a certain hand.
There’s no limit to the way that this information will come in – and I can’t possibly list them all here – so you’re just going to have to trust.
Now, there’s one more piece to this – and it’s the most important one. The accuracy of this method all depends on the question you ask.
If you ask, “What color car SHOULD I get?” you’re asking a question that’s very tough to interpret. Should? Should based on what? Happiness? Satisfaction? Other people’s approval?
My suggestion is that you stick to phrases like, “Which color car will I feel most happy about for the next ten years?” or even better… “Which color car is it for my greatest and highest good to purchase.”
Depending on the questions you ask, you will get different answers about the same subject, so just spend time being selective and thoughtful in how you ask your questions!
