(IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not do this Experiment while driving.)
This Experiment has three Phases. Do the first Phase for one day, the second Phase the second day, the third Phase the third day. To start with, Notice your Attention. Notice that you have Attention, and that you can move it from one place to another place. You can put your Attention on one thing or on another thing, either inside of you or outside of you.
PHASE ONE: PLACE YOUR ATTENTION
Today, practice consciously moving your attention 5 times from an ink dot that you make on your finger to one particular object around you: for example, a doorknob, a stone, a knot in the wood, a leaf on a plant, a speck of dirt on the floor. Place your attention on that one object for 20 seconds, then move your attention to your finger dot for 20 seconds, then move your attention to a different object for 20 seconds, then back to your finger dot for 20 seconds, and so on. Move your attention and hold your attention like this for 3 minutes each time. Do this Attention Process 5 times today. (NOTE: It can be very useful for building your Attention muscles to do this Exercise once or twice a day for several months, but not while driving.)
PHASE TWO: SPLIT YOUR ATTENTION 3 WAYS
Today, practice Splitting Your Attention at least 3 ways, and consciously holding it Split.
(Do NOT do this while driving or using heavy machinery or electric cutting tools!)
Use three different senses at the same time.
For example, Split Your Attention to hear the traffic noises outside, feel the pressure of the chair on your butt, and remember what you had for dinner last night.
Or, walk by putting your feet one after the other on an imagined line in the path, sing the words to a song, and smell the trees and flowers in the air.
Or, blow bubbles with your chewing gum, make a shopping list for tomorrow, and stretch the muscles in your lower back and shoulders.
Hold this 3 Way Attention Splitting for 3 minutes each time for at least 5 times today.
PHASE THREE: PUT YOU ATTENTION ON YOUR POWER OF CHOOSING, ON YOUR FUTURE, AND ON THE CHOICE YOU NEED TO MAKE NOW
Today you will consciously Split Your Attention in 3 ways each time you need to make a Choice.
True Choices occur simultaneously in all 5 Bodies, not only in your mind. Choices made in your mind are called 'Decisions', and they are merely intellectual. A Decision does not change who you are. A Choice changes the shape of your Being and thus who you are and your relationship with the Universe. In the next 3 seconds, Split Your Attention and do the following 3 things (as much as you can at the same time):
1. Center yourself. Place 20% of your Attention on your Energetic Center that is placed on your Physical Center to be Centered. This is putting your attention on 'you', on the non-intellectual 5-Body intelligence where you make true Choices.
2. Place another 20% of your Attention on the future you want to create that will come into existence during the Small NOW moment you make your Choice.
3. Place another 20% of your Attention on speaking out your Choice. It may feel strange because your mind will not usually know what the Choice is that you are going to make or what you will say next.
(NOTE: Use the remaining 40% of your attention to read, speak, look around, stay connect with people, sit, stand, listen, breathe, Notice things around you, etc.)
Voila! Your Choice is made. You Split Your Attention 3 ways and let your 5 Bodies make your Choice. As soon as your Choice is made, move into it, and make your next Choice.
As you do this Experiment more and more often, you will begin to radically trust your Choice Creating skills.
