The state of being aware of and responding to your surroundings is very worthwhile. However, when this is amplified as in extension of the area covered, this comes with a wealth of valuable insight at your disposal which may not have been privy to. In a world where individuals in institutions of learning, corporate affairs or otherwise, are angling to exhibit excellence in their work, expanded consciousness can be a helpful tool in taking care of one’s affairs.
In work and study, individuals often look to ascend their ranks, assume more responsibilities and reap the financial remuneration attributed to progression. Given the choice between an attractive salary/business returns and a small stipend for the same amount of time and energy expended, I believe that the choice would be obvious for many people. As a healer, expanding my awareness is pertinent to and helps my work.
Expanded awareness comes with the possibility of being more discerning and decisive in matters. A miniature similitude that I can give is that an Advanced Level student of Politics may know that he/she wants to study Politics at university. However, when he/she studies Politics to PhD or Doctor of philosophy level, the knowledge base is comparatively vast in relation to the Advanced Level stage. In work or business, during the period of their apprenticeship, the apprentice is unlikely to be as knowledgeable, skilled and experienced as his/her employer.
Expanded consciousness can lead to transformation of the individual both materially and spiritually, and it can also be cathartic. Allotting a few moments of time with regularity is not asking for too much, given the short, medium and long term benefits to be derived. You may find that you love what you do, you are more innovative or come up with such ideas with ease to better your work or products. Strategic planning may be done with more ease, experientially; it may not be stressful but enjoyable. I believe that expanding one’s consciousness can aid him/her in taking better care of their affairs.
I wish you well.
