CHALLENGE YOUR MIND
THE FREQUENCIES OF THE CONFIDANT
Over the course of three days you can dive into the three frequencies associated with the Confidant archetype.
This is the pathway of discernment. Connect to the Shadow, Gift and Siddhi and surrender as the wisdom unfolds. Use mindfulness to witness your patterns without judgement.
Follow a sequence of investigation where you allow the Confidant to enter your life. Access wisdom through inquiry, play with possibilities and potential, practice empathy, communicate with and listen through love.
Journal out your experience.
Be on the lookout for when this shows up when you are in conversation with another.
If someone says something pessimistic or contrary to what you believe can you feel your walls come up? Can you notice your mind wandering? Can you see your mind wanting to defend or justify your opinion on the subject? What about when you aren't interested in what another person is saying? Do you let their words go in one ear and out the other? Do you find yourself zoning out? Can you maintain optimism when someone else is sharing their secrets or turmoil with you?
This gift offers you the ability to see something from different perspectives. To listen to what someone's viewpoint is and be able to put yourself in their shoes.
Venture into a controversial topic that has people on the right and left of it. Do you have an opinion on the matter? Do you side with one perspective over another? Pick the side you do not identify with. Do some research on it and look at it as though you are building SUPPORT for this side. Can you begin to see all perspectives and discern what is for you and what is not without judgement. Only decision. Can you begin to see that there are reasons for both perspectives
Empathy can be a beautiful skill to have. It requires that you understand someone for the benefit of the other and not the benefit of yourself.
Think of someone who has a radically different life than you. Possibly is worse off than you and experiencing something difficult right now. Begin to inquire about what it would be like to live life in their shoes. How do they feel when they wake up in the morning? What do they worry about? How do they feel about themselves? What do they desire? What challenges do they face? What kind of help or support could they use right now?
