Do you ever feel like things aren’t changing as fast as you want them to? Like you’re doing all the “right” things and working your butt off to change them, and they just won’t?
I have certainly been there. And sometimes it’s just timing.
But not always. In order to change our circumstances, my teacher taught me we need to be able to have 2 things:
- Where we are right now
- Where we are wanting to go
This means we need to fully accept the truth in the moment, as well as the potential situation we are looking to create.
What most of us do instead most of the time falls into one of 2 categories:
Oh dear! But yes it’s true.
When we are either whining or fantasizing, we are basically saying, “Where I am right now is not ok.” And when we aren’t ok with where we are, we’re not present.
When we’re not present, we can’t get anywhere! Have you ever tried it?
I can’t count how many times I’ve driven around while talking on the phone or to the person next to me, and missed my exit. Now, on the freeway it’s easy to turn around, but what about your big dreams in life?
How long do you want to wait for them to happen? How many detours do you want to take along the way?
I remember once having a client who spent an hour convincing me she was alone, and that no one cared about her. I spent an hour sitting across from her thinking, “Hmmm, I’m a person who cares, who is here with her now, and she even paid me– but she’s not getting it.” She just kept telling her story and left feeling about the same as she started.
By contrast, I have clients that share with me major breakthroughs just months after one session. How do they do it?
They show up willing to change. They go into our work fully open to where they are at now, and fully open to their potential.
Now we all need to be heard, but often our stories are not the real “us.” They’re just our egos fighting for dear life, trying to convince us that they’re the most important thing on earth.
And they’re not. I do celebrate though when the stories start to fight, because they wouldn’t be fighting if you weren’t on the verge of a breakthrough.
When I notice this, I know to look deeper, so if I don’t directly answer your question, that’s why. I’m not in service to your ego, but instead to you.
How do you discover the real you? Feel into your body. Ask yourself a question and feel your body’s response.
Even if it doesn’t make sense, the good news is no one can argue with it. And when you explore it, it will take you deeper, into breakthrough.
You can also use easy-to-learn energy tools, like we’ll be doing in the Intuitive Training Program. They are particularly helpful in clearing energy, and in distinguishing your truth from the “noise” around you.
Meanwhile, try this:
Consider a situation you want to change and ask yourself, with regards to that situation:
- How much can I accept where I am right now?
- How much can I fully accept being where I want to go?
If neither one is less than 100%, decide to shift it today, even a little. Ask yourself what is needed and take the first step.
