Cracking Your Clan Code: The New Family Values
What I’m talking about today is Cracking Your Clan’s Code.
Cracking Your Clan’s Code is about codifying your family values to design the household and the future and the relationships you want to experience day in and day out.
Our Clans, or families, are operating under a set of shared assumptions that influence our unspoken values. I grew up with a family that held this assumption:
- Eating ice cream while watching a screen before bed is fun family time.
And it was! I loved eating chocolate ice cream while watching the Cosby show with my siblings and parental units (yes I’m a child of the 80’s). We also had an assumption that went like this:
- It’s important for the family to connect for the biggest meal of the day whenever Dad gets home from work.
Of course coming together as a clan of 5 was important. However, most of my health issues – from constipation to allergies to headaches – were linked to eating too late in the day – and having desserts that aggravated my constitution. If we had tested that assumption by doing a deep dive investigation of our values, I probably wouldn’t have had health issues (which led to the career I have now). So be it.
The bigger question is – how were my childhood clan’s value not lining up to my family’s actions? And how are your clan’s values out of sync with your actions?
When our actions are out of sync with our values – there is a cost. The loss of health, joy, ease, flow, time and money can be easily quantified if you take the time to figure it out. For now, get curious about how much more abundance, flow, joy, love, time, money and thrive you could have if you take the time to live up your values with your actions. Capiche?
You’ll want to watch this quick video to start investigation your assumptions… and your clan’s code.
Each clan has a unique code. Your clan’s code already exists. It’s time to crack the code that releases the magic of connectivity.
Yet, when you take the time together to uncover it, to chisel it down to a few simple words, the magic happens.
The yogis have known this for-freaking-ever. Seriously. The yogis started codifying their sutras over 4,000 years ago. They knew that simple, short statements composed of powerful words that synergized a unique, lasting truth were codes. Codes unlock consciousness. And that’s exactly what makes it way easier to live together! To work together! To have fun together! To live harmonious, aligned lives! (Sometimes this new age verbiage is like, gag me with a spoon—but it is my experience.)
You won’t comprehend the power of discovering your clan’s code and chiseling your golden tablets together until you watch the video. Watch it. Have an aha moment. And understand exactly what your unique family values—or your clan’s code—are.
On our journey to better health for ourselves and our families, food isn’t the only component. Our values play a huge role in how we engineer our choices. We live in a toxic food culture with the odds stacked against us. Building structure and creating a plan wherein you and your family feel empowered is vitally important for success. And success takes creating new structures for growth. “Doing your unique values” in this workshop is a stepping stone for structure.
