Danielle Gault, Author, Seminar Leader, Coach, Consultant – Interview part 2

The mental awareness deals with thoughts and ideas. The social-mental awareness deals with connections to the ideas. The social-physical awareness deals with a broader range of connections to people, things, and feelings than the social-mental. The physical awareness deals with doing and manifesting results. Although we all use all of the awarenesses, we each generally prefer to use one awareness over the others. We tend to want to stay in our preferred choice and use it more often, thereby developing and making it easily accessible to us. And because of this, we tend to take it for granted, even discounting its value in our life: It is easy for us to use as along the way we have made distinctions on how to apply it and when to apply it through many trials and errors.

The work of Dr. Carl Gustav Jung has been influential in the development of personality theory. In Psychological Types,[1] he said that what appears to be random behavior in people is really consistent behavior over time. He also stated that our preference for how we take in and relate to information is inherent in us. Inherent tendencies can be illustrated through our preference for using the left or right hand when writing. We prefer one hand to the other, so it is used more often and our handwriting becomes well developed, flows easily and appears mature.

When asked to use the opposite hand to write our signature, we find that we need more concentration, it takes more effort and energy and often the results appear immature and messy.

Experience what I mean in the following exercise.


Write your signature as you usually do.


Now, write your signature using your other hand.

Of course you can write with your opposite hand, but it probably felt awkward and took more concentration, and the result may not even be legible.

Our use of awareness’s, like handwriting, is similar in that it is an inherent preference, and once developed, shows up as our dominant expression when living and working in our world with and through others. On teams, we will want to focus more on one awareness over the others. We think that our preference is the most important point of any team project or assignment. In families, we think we have the answers for our children or mates because we are so used to seeing the world through our own lens. What we need to do is expand our lens so that we can see the world from a broader perspective and have more options. This is a main emphasis of this book: to provide you with more options when striving to maintain balance in your life. 

Stay awake, aware, and alert and strive to lead a well-tempered life – a life that possesses both hardiness and flexibility.  The good news is that once you are awake, it’s hard to go to sleep again, but if you do, do it on purpose and prepare yourself for the consequences.
