Ok., this is very huge, to the point that what you are even reading now and how you perceive it can change everything that this blog post could help you with.
My husband started inspiring me with this one rule of life and am still getting use to it. perception changes everything. you can take your day and with perception you can change it to whatever you desire. Try it…when you are stuck in traffic going to work and you are already pissed and someone hits the back of your car…well!!! lets see how you can perceive what just happened in two different ways.
You can be super pissed and mad about it and spend your energy creating a negative emotions which will end up going down that negative emotions all throughout your day. from one incident you can create many just by the shift of your perception.
Or you can do this ” with a smile and positive emotions you can get out of your car and walk to their car and say “this too shall pass and it could have been worse” you just blocked the negative emotions we have been accustomed to that anytime that incident happens you suppose to get out of your car furious. so you see same incident but very different perception that can make your day even more amazing or change it to probably one of your worse days as you will put it.
For the past 16yrs since I met my husband I have worked on just trying to change my perception on daily activates. And it has worked in so many ways that am so grateful for. Am still learning and there are moments I get caught up in the negative emotions but there are more days of positive perception that I get to change how my day goes in just a second.
The five main stages of perception that I am aware of and it helps me:
- Stimulation: In order to perceive that something is happening, it must come to a person’s attention. Stimulation can occur through any of the five senses: smelling, seeing, hearing, touching or tasting.
- Organization: To quickly disseminate large amounts of information, such as events happening, a human’s brain organizes the events by familiar components. Connecting familiar components with past experiences helps the person understand what is transpiring.
- Interpretation: Once the key components of an event are recognized, individuals apply their own biases to it through interpretation, sometimes referred to as evaluation. Relating past experiences, beliefs, values and more, a person can decide what the meaning of the event is and how to react if necessary.
- Memory: To remember a perceived event or moment, it must be stored into memory. Individuals use those previously formed associations with personal beliefs and experiences to remember events and their personal evaluations of them.
- Recall: Remembering the perceived event later on will retrieve the most important details of it. Blanks may need to be filled in by thinking through the situation again. Persistent recall improves the accuracy of this step.
I truly hope that what I share on my page will be able to help you manage your perception in your daily life.
with love and gratitude
