It is so easy to get distracted and off track from attending our deepest soul's desires. Life gets in the way; other peoples agendas, the amount of time that we have to spend working to make a living, caring for our parents and children and all of the necessary obligations of our daily lives. The sheer amount of time spent bringing it all together...buying food, doing laundry, AND following our intuition to take action toward our wildest dreams!
Exhausting, right? Sometimes. But today I would like to talk about how you can follow your intuition to actually manifest that which you know you most want in your life. Even through all of the other distractions and demands on your time and energy.
Yesterday I listened to a teleseminar given by a young woman who works less than 20 hours a week and is raising two little children, AND is making multiple six figures a year. Very inspiring! Part of her story is that it wasn't always that way. She actually went far into debt not long ago, following coaches and taking trainings that were very costly, only to go home and do nothing about creating her business and dream.
I think that sometimes we have to have our backs right up against the wall before we take the big scary leap to move forward and take action toward our true desires. The reason is that it is not easy. Or I should say, it may be very easy, but it's not comfortable.
The KEY to manifesting your dreams and desires is the ability to listen to the soul whisperings instead of the ego. The ego is a valuable part of your make-up, a part that is all about keeping you safe.
When you understand this, you can come to terms with those voices within that say to you "you know that big idea I had the other day? It isn't really so great. And it will take too much time and money to make it happen. I don't think I will pursue it after all". That is the voice of the ego keeping you safe from having to push through and seek out the help, support and resources required to make your idea real.
Meanwhile your highest vision for your own destiny begins to wain. Eventually those visions and ideas won't hold your attention at all. They are what we often call "pipe dreams", more like a little mosquite bothering you than the fire in your belly calling you forth.
Let's do a "what if" exploration together: What if you already had in place the expression of your idea? What would your life look like? What would your day look like? Where would you now be living, and who would you be spending your time with? How much money would you have alread bankrolled to move even further? What kind of support would you have, either in people or resources? On a scale of 1-10, how satisfied would you be?
Congratulations. If you just did this exercise, you will have dreamed up your big vision for yourself. This is a very good beginning! Now the next step is to allow your intuition, your inner knowing, to guide you a little bit. For this you must give some sacred time to meditate and sit with your vision. Even if it seems that the dream is 100% impossible because of lack of money or time, just taking the time to listen to your inner voice matters. It puts the ball in motion. It is a form of activity which opens the playing field wide open! The sky is the limit. You are dreaming it up!
Back to the young coach I just described above. What she did was envision herself as a player in the coaching world and on-line marketing world. She took all of the information given to her about how to move forward, and she just did it. The decision to just do it will take years off your timeline for manifesting what it is that you really desire. It can happpen really fast when you align yourself with the vision and walk toward that vision. The "how" is not important during the intuition-activation phase. It is about taking one step toward your goal with conviction, after listening to what you inner knowing tells you about what to do.
Coaching is all about support and achieving goals. But the road to get there is to look fearlessly at the obstacles that you have in fact thrown up in your own way. Startling but true! As you clear the hidden obstacles, excuses, and fears that hinder you, keeping you invisible and unwilling to put yourself out there, you will take a major step forward in making your dream happen.
After all, what else is there, right?
I invite you to sit with me for a 45 minute consultation call and talk about the obstacles you feel are in your way from manifesting the life and work of your dreams. Email: support@soulconnectioncoaching,com and I will get you on my schedule. There is a short application process that I will ask you to do beforehand, mostly to see if we are a good fit for one another, but you will be glad you did! Many people tell me they achieve a breakthrough in their mindset just by answering the questions on the questionaire.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
