On my car ride home yesterday, I played a little game with myself. I thought about what I would say if interviewed (by an imaginary person) at the end of 2024. I imagined the end of the year like a finish line and someone with a microphone in my face asking, " So how does it feel now that you've_____(fill in the blank)?
I loved this thought because by making me think about how it felt to succeed at something, it also made me focus in more on what I wanted to succeed at!
I thought about my work category.
My work category is not my 9-5 job. It's the work I do that resonates with my soul purpose. It's supporting, teaching, sharing, motivating, helping, inspiring, others in the same boat I am in or maybe in boats I used to be in.
As I write this out, I realize that I not only do this in my coaching business, but also have the opportunity to do this at my 9-5.
I am an amazing support to others and others are an amazing support to me.
This is my goal. This is what I want to be. I want to be an amazing support to others. I also know to keep it balanced and healthy, I need to also allow others to be an amazing support to me!
So, when I think about answering the question at the end of the year, "how does it feel now that you've been an amazing support to others and they have been an amazing support to you?"
I feel PROUD of myself for being supportive and my heart feels full of gratitude that others have been an amazing support to me.
How does the law of attraction fit in?
By asking myself that question "how does it feel now that you've" ..I'm able to find the emotion that I need to practice each day.
Why would I practice feeling this way each day?
Practicing how you will feel activates your inner being, or your creative inner child who is always silently eavesdropping in the background and creating a reality to support how you feel.
How does the inner child create the new reality?
Your inner being can see everything that you can not. It can see the way, the higher perspective and begins moving you in the direction required to support your reality filling in to bring you those people, situations, and experiences that help you feel the feeling you consistently practice.
It also controls your behaviors. When it's time to act because enough of the new reality has filled in and it's time to take the next step, you will be urged to act. No questions or debating back and forth if this is the right action. You just know and do.
Different thoughts and ideas begin flowing through your mental space as well. You begin to think differently. You have ah ha moments and revelations. A new understanding begins to emerge as the new reality begins to fill in around you.
For example, this morning as I was practicing the feeling of supporting others and feeling supported, I felt a strong and immediate urge to reach out by text to two of my clients. So I did.
I also had the thought that supporting my clients over text gave me more of the feeling I was seeking, than just posting to instagram. The back and forth in the communication and connection is very rewarding to me. A revelation.
I will keep practicing this feeling and see where the urges move me to act.
What I will not do, that I've had the tendency to do in the past, is suddenly think I know everything because I've had a new thought go through my mental space and then start taking actions out of desperation, or trying, or struggling to make things happen before it's time.
I will practice patience. I will practice feeling proud and full. I will do my part and stay out of the way while my inner being does it's part.
