Self-Discovery Guidelines to Access and Activate:

Take your time, go slowly, and be patient with yourself to get the best results.

1. Feel your body, take a few moments to settle in. Your body holds deep wisdom. Trust in it. Learn from it. Connect with it.

2. Focus on and bring your awareness to the specific Inner Resource of Determination.

Writing down your insights is very helpful, and we encourage you to keep a journal of your explorations, so grab a journal or a pad of paper now!

When I bring forth my powers of determination, I can accomplish anything! 

As I access and activate the resource of determination within me, what do I discover?

Pause for a moment and consider what things you have been determined to do in your life?

Think of 3 things/times you have been determined about something in your life. Pause and write them down or take note in your mind.

With curiosity, be aware of and attentive to how this feels in your body. 

Notice in what ways this activates the experience of determination within you and gives you more access to it. 

Take your time and feel into the power of determination within your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies. 

Write down, draw or take note of this experience.

Is there anything in your life right now where determination could support you?

Think of something that you want in your life and say to yourself, “I am determined ____”.
For example, take the sentence “I want to be happy” and rephrase it to “I am determined to be happy”. 

Fill in the blank and make your own statements! 

Determination and Courage are great allies and support each other. Notice what happens when adding the resource of Courage to the resource of Determination. Specifically bring in Courage as you consider the outcomes you want to achieve.

How does this feel within you?

Remember that writing down your insights can be very helpful. 

Please share your insights so we can be inspired by each other!
