See the Pattern and Then the Potential
Adventures in the Unseen World
Experiences keep repeating because we keep doing what we’ve always been doing. To change our experience and our results, we only have to change our actions.
However, there is another way to look at patterns. We can see patterns as potential. You become aware that what continues to show up – for better or worse – is a result of your actions and thoughts. The patterns you have set up by your actions and thoughts are working to create the results that appear.
You are the creator of the results you experience. Change your patterns and you will change the outcome. All change comes from within you.
What is working?
Because I’m retired there are a great many things about my life that are working. Because I’m old there are a few things that are not working as well as I would like. Let’s begin with the positive.
I’m a much better writer than I was even five years ago, let alone 50 years ago. That’s a positive that has built over time because it is a passion and a constant calling that I heeded.
Over the course of time, I now know myself well enough to know I like to write in short forms so I do not undertake long detailed projects. That’s a powerful realization – knowing what you like to do and what you don’t like to do. That helps you make good choices.
I love to do shamanic journeying so I do that nearly every day. I love to play my flute so I do that every day. I love to write so I do that every day. See how easy it is to fill your day with things that you love to do!!
Notice what you love to do and simply do more of it.
What is not working?
Because I spend so much time encouraging my mind, my body has taken a bit of hit. I’m smart enough to know what I need to do but I have to find more clever ways to get me to do it. My inactivity is working to make my body less strong. I need to make changes in my viewpoint, my expectation, and my actions.
Look for the pattern
I have to look for places I am willing to put in new actions that will correct the things that are not working. If it means doing some Qi Gong when I stand up from my desk, then I begin there. If it means a few yoga moves at the kitchen skink every time I am in that room, I can build on that pattern and add new designs.
Create a pattern of reminders. I call them pulse points. Walk through a doorway and let it remind you to stand up straighter. When you see the sun set out the window, turn and play your flute and offer gratitude for the day.
A pulse point. Something you do often that will serve as a reminder to begin to establish new choices, new habits.
Look for the potential
There is potential for strengthening my body each time I move around the room. There is potential for stretching even while sitting in a chair.
I have a pattern of preferring to write in relatively short pieces. But the potential becomes a collection of posts to make a book. Use what you are drawn to.
I am doing very unusual shamanic journey work and the potential seems to include processes to teach others. Explore how you will share your passion.
My exploration of vibration healing has moved beyond tuning forks and humming and drumming. I am exploring the Unseen World for guidance and information and your next steps. Let your inner voice guide you.
Every thought you have is filled with potential. It may or may not be yours to do, but if the idea appears, it is certainly yours to examine and perhaps explore a bit.
What is the potential for the idea you just got?
Know what is stopping you and see if it can be released
Thirty-five years ago I was told I could be a very strong motivational speaker.
I did not pursue that because I was bogged down with a bit of shyness. Perhaps a lack of confidence, perhaps not feeling I knew enough to motivate anyone. In order words, I did not understand or know my own value, my own gifts, my own potential.
The result is that I am not a motivational speaker, but I am a motivational writer.
Find where the gift fits and do that.
Identify the pattern and then explore its potential.

I take conscious stock of the patterns in my life and look creatively at their potential.
Deeper Song Process
- Take time to make a list of the things you do or think about what you want to do.
- Pick one and go exploring. Look at some training videos to see if the idea really appeals to you. What more could you do with the idea? Where could it take you? How could you make it uniquely yours? What is in your way? How can you get rid of that?
- Find what is calling you and do that.
