This post was inspired by these very kind words offered from my client, Debbie:
“At a time when I was most overwhelmed with life, I happened upon Tom Bushlack. He introduced me to the Centering for Wisdom program. My program with Tom helped me slow down, focus, and center my thoughts on a place of openness…” Centering for Wisdom is “the perfect guide for someone who is looking to accept or manage the chaos of life.”

I don’t know about you all, but I go through this pattern over and over in my professional life. I’ll feel really connected to creative energy, centered and aligned with my purpose, detached from the outcomes, and trusting that everything is working out just as it’s meant to be.
From that space I’ll do these inspired actions that move the ball down the field in my business.
And then after a while, I notice my energy shift. I start to feel like I’m pushing and striving, trying to force things toward the outcomes, getting attached to those outcomes. And then I get tired, exhausted, frustrated. And in the process I lose touch with my center and purpose.
Maybe some of that resonates with you? If it gets really bad, maybe a health issue come up, or a major project will just collapse, or a relationship will become strained (or come to an unexpected end).
But here’s what I’ve learned after doing this practicing for over 20 years and coaching many others through it. It’s possible to notice when you’re being pulled away from your center and your purpose…AND it always shows up in the body (tension, exhaustion, brain fog, etc.).
Guess what? That’s how intelligently God has created our human bodies – your body gives you clues that it’s time to pause, pull back, re-center, re-connect with your purpose. It’s part of the Divine Wisdom of the universe that we access in and through our bodies.
Even though your body gets tired, your brain (and your iron will) is what keeps pushing until you’re lying in the corner of your office exhausted and burned out.
And here’s where Centering for Wisdom is designed to work with these natural rhythms and clues that God has built into the universe, and into your body’s innate wisdom.
Rather than waiting until you hit a wall and collapse, in Centering for Wisdom you learn a simple practice and you build the habit into your life so that you are always coming back to your center (in God) at regular intervals – before you push too hard into burnout.
Now when you’re first starting out, you’ve probably got months – or even years?!! – of exhaustion and tension built up. So in the beginning, it’s about stopping that cycle and giving your body the time and the space to heal…slowly coming back to center, slowly rediscovering your inherent worth and value and your innate sense of purpose for which God put you on this earth to have a human experience.
Then, while you’re doing this deep healing and reconnecting, you’re also rewiring your body, mind, and brain (even your neuropathways) so that as you start to move beyond the initial phase of healing, now you’re set up to stay centered and aligned with Divine Wisdom for the rest of your life!
You can have a home base – that’s your daily centering practice – to come back when you start to get pulled away from your center, moving back toward burnout and exhaustion again. (And this will happen, ‘cuz you’re human)
If having that kind of a center, a ground, a guide, and ability to access your body’s connection to Divine Wisdom is something that you want, then I want to invite you book your free Breakthrough Session.
We’ve got a proven process that takes about 45 to 60 minutes to help you get really clear on where you could use some centering, what dreams and purpose you’ll connect with in your spiritual practice, and you’ll know exactly what to do next.
And if that’s something we can help you with, we’ll discuss that. If not, you’ll still get massive clarity from the call.
