JumpStart - Your Mutation

6 months ago, I was feeling lonely and isolated living in a community where less than 10% of owners are full-time residents so I downloaded a dating app to my phone.I was really nervous and uncertain but I began to open the app and view images and read the bios of women in the age range and lifestyle group I was looking for.I wasn’t really taking the whole thing very seriously -- certainly not looking to fall in love, so I added another app, and then another, and another….What I noticed is that most of the women said they were looking for a man with a “good sense of humor” but little do they know…Being funny is a great attribute but it is also often spawned from having an abusive and/or neglectful childhood.Humor is a defense mechanism that hides very real wounds.We all have such mutations -- superpowers that also have a dark side.Today, let’s stop focussing on the side-effects of your own mutation and begin to celebrate your superpower.Links:Daily LIVE meditation with Will: www.ComplaintFreeMeditation.comMembers-Only, exclusive access to Will: www.ComplaintFreeLife.com Website: www.WillBowen.com Facebook: www.Facebook.com/WillBowen YouTube Channel: www.WillBowenVideo.com Podcast: www.WillBowenPodcast.com

JumpStart - A Penny

Let me share a poem with you…“I bargained with Life for a penny,And Life would pay no more,However I begged at eveningWhen I counted my scanty store;“For Life is just an employer,He gives you what you ask,But once you have set the wages,Why, you must bear the task.“I worked for a menial's hire,Only to learn, dismayed,That any wage I had asked of Life,Life would have paid.”(Jessie Rittenhouse)Today we get real about the transactional nature of life. And, how you can negotiate a better life starting right now!Links:Daily LIVE meditation with Will: www.ComplaintFreeMeditation.comMembers-Only, exclusive access to Will: www.ComplaintFreeLife.com Website: www.WillBowen.com Facebook: www.Facebook.com/WillBowen YouTube Channel: www.WillBowenVideo.com Podcast: www.WillBowenPodcast.com

JumpStart - No There

Gertrude Stein famously said words to the effect of, “When you get there, there is no there, there.”This saying has become so much a part of our culture that I recently heard of a band named No There There. Have you ever heard this quote?To me it says that when you live something you anticipate, either something you perceive to be good or you perceive to be bad, it is never quite what you expect.Moreover, your very presence shifts the dynamic of the experience.Today, let’s draw comfort from the fact that we change our environment and that nothing is ever as bad as we fear it might be.

JumpStart - Being Pulled

JumpStart - Anger 2

Yesterday's JumpStart received so much engagement I wanted to keep the conversation about anger going because right now there are more angry people than ever before. In this JumpStart, we explore how anger can show up in many forms including aggressive anger, passive aggressive anger, sadness, and even depression. The EMOTION of anger is normal; the STATE of anger is not. Anger is the emotion associated with death AND it's a habitual response in many people.

JumpStart - Anger

Today I want to get personal and talk about this emotion that for so many years ruined my life.Many of us his children felt our very survival threatened and as a result we have grown up as angry adults.I thought I was a helpless victim to my own anger not realizing that I could “master the gap.“There is a gap between an action in your reaction and if you can learn to choose a new reaction you can change your life.Recognizing the gap is the hard part but once you do you’ll find that you have ample opportunities to make new and better choices.Members-Only, daily LIVE meditation with Will: www.ComplaintFreeMeditation.comMembers-Only, exclusive access to Will: www.ComplaintFreeLife.com Website: www.WillBowen.com Facebook: www.Facebook.com/WillBowen YouTube Channel: www.WillBowenVideo.com Podcast: www.WillBowenPodcast.com

JumpStart - Clouds

I use a commercial photo library called BigStock.It provides me with photographs that I can use in various marketing purposes and what I find interesting is that whenever I put in the word “God“ what is most often presented is the sun breaking through clouds.I get the sun but I don’t understand the clouds.Perhaps, we need darkness to experience light, pain to know healing, and breakdowns so we can have breakthroughs. Today let’s unpack this universal image of God as sunlight breaking through clouds and how we can apply this powerfully to our lives.Members-Only, daily LIVE meditation with Will: www.ComplaintFreeMeditation.comMembers-Only, exclusive access to Will: www.ComplaintFreeLife.com Website: www.WillBowen.com Facebook: www.Facebook.com/WillBowen YouTube Channel: www.WillBowenVideo.com Podcast: www.WillBowenPodcast.com

JumpStart - Your dial

A woman I know sent me an email that said, “I’m sorry for all the mean and hurtful things I said to you in the past but I can’t help it, I’m Irish.”It’s easy to blame our ethnicity, our upbringing, our circumstances, and ANYTHING other than ourselves when we become aggressively angry.In reality, there is a dial inside each of us that we can control although many of us gave over the management of that dial to our reactive mind long ago.Today, let’s talk about a two-part strategy for not overreacting in difficult situations:Mentally talking yourself down off the ledgeBody awareness to experience, breathe through, and release physical sensationsLearn how to dial down your emotions so that you become more eMembers-Only, daily LIVE meditation with Will: www.ComplaintFreeMeditation.comMembers-Only, exclusive access to Will: www.ComplaintFreeLife.com Website: www.WillBowen.com Facebook: www.Facebook.com/WillBowen YouTube Channel: www.WillBowenVideo.com Podcast: www.WillBowenPodcast.com

JumpStart Prayer

About a year ago I heard “Let’s all pray for this world” by Perry Farrell, and it immediately resonated with me.I felt if ever there was a time we needed prayer it was then, which was PRIOR to a global pandemic, record unemployment, and worldwide race protests.Today, let’s all stop, take a breath, and express a prayer.Today, let’s release our fears to a power greater than ourselves and trust that everything will evolve as it should to the best and highest for all.Today, let’s know that out of chaos comes order, out of wounds come healing, and out of hate comes love.Today, I’ll teach you a simple, non-religious method of prayer that will make you feel good and that will create a positive impact in our world.Today, let’s pray.Links:Members-Only, daily LIVE meditation with Will: www.ComplaintFreeMeditation.com Members-Only, exclusive access to Will: www.ComplaintFreeLife.com Website: www.WillBowen.com Facebook: www.Facebook.com/WillBowen YouTube Channel: www.WillBowenVideo.com Podcast: www.WillBowenPodcast.com

JumpStart - Feelings

People use the word “feelings” incorrectly most of the time.They say, “I feel” when they actually mean “I think” as in “I feel we should do this.”And even when they use the word “feel” correctly, they don’t identify the feeling in their body such that they can become aware of the sensations and energy the feeling creates.Today, let’s get in touch with our feelings and how our body reacts to feelings we experience.More importantly, let’s learn how to manage our bodily sensations (feelings) such that we are less reactive and more happy.

JumpStart - Race 2

After yesterday’s JumpStart, I felt incomplete.Although I shared some of the dark history of my family’s racism and the idea that no one seems to spot their own racism, I felt like I should have gone deeper offering suggestions and advice to spot our biases.In almost every culture, there is a group (either race or religion) in power and an “other” who is often described as being unethical, unclean, uneducable, and immoral.Using those prejudices over and over, cultures have been divided along racial and religious lines throughout history.If we want to open ourselves up to a new reality, we need to change our beliefs and open our minds and hearts to others.Let’s JumpStart race and explore how we can come together as the one and only human race.Members-Only, daily LIVE meditation with Will: www.ComplaintFreeMeditation.com �Members-Only, exclusive access to Will: www.ComplaintFreeLife.com Website: www.WillBowen.com Facebook: www.Facebook.com/WillBowen YouTube Channel: www.WillBowenVideo.com Podcast: www.WillBowenPodcast.com
