I've been up to something really nerdy... I'm reading original source material for NLP.
Most of you know that I'm an NLP Trainer (Neuro-Linguistic Programming, i.e. changing your brain with language) and one of the cool things about NLP is that it is a constantly evolving set of tools and techniques all encased in one handy-dandy philosophy of excellence. In other words, we do whatever we need to do to get you to results as quickly and effortlessly as possible. And we keep coming up with better ways to do that as our understanding of the human body increases. It's so cool!
“Why does God let bad things happen to us when we are good people?”
“Why doesn’t God love us?”
In Daniel’s vision he sees an evil man who is allowed to hold-back the army of God and overthrow God’s holy sanctuary. For me, those haunting words are some of the scariest in the whole Bible. The truth was overthrown and evil was allowed to succeed in everything it did. That is terrifying to me! Why would God allow evil to have its way with His people? How bad must they have totally messed up for God to say, “I’m outta here! They’re on their own!” We don’t have to guess because it’s all right there in Daniel Chapter 8. The people forgot about God, they stopped turning to Him for guidance. They stopped loving Him and making Him their #1 priority. They placed other gods in that space in their lives and hearts that God demands for Himself.
“The ram butted everything out of his way to the west, to the north, and to the south, and no one could stand against him or help his victims. He did as he pleased and became very great.”
“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.”
Now let's get to the heart of it: I don't like February. I mean, I *really* don't like February.
I *really* want to love February. I want to love every moment of the amazing life I've been blessed with.
I've tried and tried to love February, I really have, but this year broke me. I do everything I can: this year I celebrated Imbolc, Chinese New Year, the New Moon, Valentine's Day, Family Day, Leap Day, and everything I could find in between.
Discovery sessions, branding, copy, how to close, content delivery, money, manifestation practices... they're all really important.
I've invested 10s of thousands of dollars and years learning what works and what doesn't, and I share it with my clients.
But what I've *finally* figured out, and I can't believe it has taken me this long to really, REALLY *get* it, is that NONE of those things are coaching.
Also? St. Brigid's Day, Candlemas, Groundhog Day, and probably a whole swack of other celebrations designed to lift our eyes to the light in the dark time of the solar cycle (in the north). It's one of my favourite days of the year!
Last week I read “The Big Leap” by Gay Hendricks and one of the ideas that has grabbed me is Einstein Time.
Without going too far into quantum physics (because I want you all to stay awake!), one of Einstein’s ground-breaking ideas was the Theory of Relativity - the idea that, as the observer, I determine reality, including time. Hendricks has taken this idea and turned it into an easy way to understand ‘flow-time’ or why sometimes it takes *forever* for something to happen.
And so it ends. *coughcough*
All that drama and brouhaha about that Filing Cabinet and the big challenge from my new Coach and the Unconscious Mind conversation [See it Here] and I *finally* went with my husband to check out a floor model at a furniture shop in the city.
