As you are sitting where you are right now - imagine that your higher self gently floats out of your body and is looking down at the top of your head. Become that higher self and see what it sees. From this aerial view notice not only the top of your head but also the chair you are sitting in, the desk or table that your computer sits on.
Now you start to expand up and out. You can now see the entire room or office you are sitting in.
You grow even bigger - you can now see the entire house or building your physical self is in.
Grow even bigger and you can see the entire neighborhood you are in. All the streets, stores, traffic lights, etc..
Bigger and you can now see the entire state you are living in.
Grow even more and you can see the entire country as if you were looking at a map.
Grow even more and now you can see the planet.
Observe this gorgeous orb for a minute and lovingly take it into the palm of your hand.
(Actually look down at the palm of your hand and imagine that globe sitting there. - Very Important!)
How do you feel now? Do you not feel like the greatest giant that ever lived?
Now try and relocate that tiny little physical you in that tiny country, tiny state, tiny building, tiny room and then try to find its tiny little problems.
From this perspective can't you see that the problem or circumstance is so small it is practically non-existent?
Don't you feel like laughing and soothing that little being and saying "What are you so worried about little one? I can handle that problem without even blinking. We are sooo much more than that."
Imagine with laughter if you were to take even the smallest pinch of money in your giant fingers and were to sprinkle it over the head of that little physical being that they would probably drown in it?
Imagine with more laughter the site of this little tiny being knocked off its chair as dollar bills landed on top of it and filled the room and house to the point where it was coming out of the windows and doors and overflowing to the streets outside.
Imagine again that if you were to send it even an ounce of the love that you truly felt for it, it would probably explode because its little physical form couldn't handle it.
THIS is how big you really are!
Anytime something comes up that may feel a little overwhelming to you - immediately do this exercise to remind yourself how miniature it really is. Feel how huge and capable you really are in being able to handle it like it was nothing more than a speck of dust.
When I first received the idea for this exercise quite a few years ago, I had been working in Manhattan. I had typed about it in my journal and was playing around with it because it felt so empowering to me.
Sure enough it was only about a day or two later when I was visiting one the millions of souvenir shops in the city during my lunch hour that I came across a bunch of key chains. One of these key chains was a small Earth globe. (Coincidence?…I think not.) Sure enough I bought it and kept it on my desk for years. (It made the exercise that more realistic.) I'm sure if you look online you can find one easily enough, but it really isn't necessary.
If you do the simply physical act of looking at your hand and imaging a little globe there you will automatically feel your immenseness.
So go play with this exercise today. The more your practice it the more natural it becomes to go right to that giant place when some "tiny" problem comes up in your life and also makes it that much easier for you to deal with it.
