I was trying to be scientific. I was going to track my volitional actions versus knee jerk reactions.
By the way, where did that phrase come from? Knee jerk reaction.
Anyway, I wanted to prove to someone that trauma induced behavior patterns can be changed with kundalini yoga and Reiki. So I was going to use a scale between 1 and 100, the higher the number, the more volitional the behaviour.
I started taking notes and gave myself a number for how conscious I was at decision-ways throughout the day.
Remind me to tell you about decision-ways.
Of course, because I was scoring my actions I was more aware of the opportunity to make a decision and was able to make a choice in line with my values and goals.
I was keeping score.
At the end of the day I had 1,098 points. Hahahahaha!
I didn’t count any negatives.
I’m not sure there is flaw in my system.
Ok about decision -ways. When my son was in high school he determined that hallways should be called decision-ways because we always have to decide which room we are going to enter. So when I become mindful of a choice to make I call that a decision-way. Thanks, Sam.
