A focus wheel is a great way to meet and move out of resistance!
I make a lot of focus wheels. I especially like them as a first-thing-in-the-day kind of activity to choose my focus instead of letting my inbox decide it. I also like them when I feel wobbly about something and want to land in a more solid place.
Make a focus wheel
There are two simple steps. I invite you to pause a moment to ground yourself (just feel feet on ground and body on furniture) and locate the breath (just follow and feel a few breath cycles, or even one) before you begin. As you make your bubbles, stay aware of and connected to breath.
Step #1: write in the center of a page a statement of what you’re reaching toward, then draw a bubble around it
Step #2: write statements all around it and circle those, until you have 12 bubbles that hold evidence of why you can truly believe and align with that center statement.
Once you have the center bubble, take your time writing one supportive statement at a time. Don't strive for them. Let them come to you as you follow the breath.
Examples follow for center statement The email to X is actually no big deal. (Treat each bullet point as a sample bubble.)
Note: Rumor has it some focus wheels look more like a clock, with round bubbles kind of symmetrically surrounding the center circle. This has never been my experience.
