Today, our expert guest is Emily Evans Russell, an Access Consciousness facilitator, mindset coach, and best-selling author. She has helped thousands of people all over the world transform and improve their lives.
Once a burned out ex-teacher, a stressed out mom, and an unhappily married partner, Emily discovered and began using the tools of Access Consciousness and transformed her life, now a gladly divorced six-figure business owner.
Access Consciousness is essentially a toolbox, many of them in the form of questions, that helps you change your point of view and your perspective. It has many things in common with cognitive behavioral therapy, so there are scientific grounds for its effectiveness.
Emily is a proponent of what she calls “Energy Shopping.” She describes it as creating your life by “shopping” the qualities of life you see around you while focusing deeply on the energy of those things rather than the expectation of what you should want.
If you want to go to energy shopping in your life, start by looking at a tough choice that you have to make. When faced with a decision, rather than going to the worst possible scenario or weighing the pros and cons, you want to start asking yourself some questions. For example, “What would my life be like in five years?” Then you look at the other side of things, “What would my life be like if I didn’t choose this?” When you ask those questions, you’ll feel that one choice seems lighter or more expansive, while the other feels heavier and more limiting. You want to go with the light, expansive choice, even if it seems strange or hard.
With just a few questions, you can completely transform your life beyond what you thought was possible.
The Biggest Helping: Today’s Most Important Takeaway
“I’d love for people to walk away with this idea of looking at choices based not so much on your mind but starting to follow and trust yourself and follow the energy in your life. Treat it like a game and see if things get a little bit easier or a little bit more fun for you when you look at heavy or light when you’re choosing things. Have fun with it and see if it can create something greater than what your mind has figured out for you.”
