Wonder is a theme word that has come up for me lately. It is such a joyous word, and I want to try and remember to create and approach new and old situations with a sense of wonder. This creates a sense of open-ness and expansion in the mind, instead of constriction. It opens your mind up to new possibilities, allowing it to be creative with new solutions and new ways of looking at the same problem.
For a very basic start, when a problem comes up, try asking yourself:
- I wonder what would happen if I approached this from a new perspective?
- I wonder if I could try to see where the other person is coming from?
- I wonder whether there are more solutions to the problem than I am currently seeing?
It’s not even necessary to know all the answers, but just creating that curiosity will create joy and expansion from the inside-out.
Another way to create wonder is to notice the world through a lens of wonder. For example, I have started taking daily walks through my neighborhood, and I notice all the different types of flowers blooming in people’s yards. I stop and take pictures of most of them. Now I anticipate my daily walks because of the sense of wonder that has been created around seeing a new flower; a new color, a new type of flower, a new bee or animal near the flowers.
A sense of wonder helps to calibrate your energy to a higher level, where wonders never cease!
