|The Positive Principle Show
Hello Positive Principle People,
A few days ago, I met with Max via FaceTime for my first coaching session. It was illuminating and energizing.
With Max's help, I realized that some of my blocks are actually long held perceptions that can be changed. Here's an example: After two years of attending art openings, art receptions, museum parties, and more art openings, I believed that art dealers/gatekeepers are judgmental and cold. I felt that this small group of people held the keys to my dreams coming true, and it was impossible to build a real connection with them. My dreams were shot!*
*This is the block that Max helped me to see. He actually raised his voice (kindly) and said it was critical that I stop saying that "All art dealers (gatekeepers) are impossible to connect with."
Instead, I can say "In the past, my experience has been that art dealers are intimidating and uninterested in me."
This empowers you to acknowledge what happened in the past, but you don't have to bring it into your present or future. Make space for a different possibility! Yes!
I have heard this concept before: "Make space for a different possibility". But I did not apply it to gatekeepers/art dealers. It is fascinating to me that there are certain issues that I don't "see", so I don't apply my meditation and learnings to those issues. Max brought that to my attention immediately, and I'm so happy about it.
This coaching session freed up good energy because I no longer have to believe that art dealers/gatekeepers are judgmental and uninterested in me. In fact, seeing this in written form makes it clear that these are the ego's words.
I definitely do not want the ego to keep running this show.
I'm a visual person and it frequently helps me to have a visual aid. So, here's a visual aid for what the ego is like (have you guys seen The Lord of the Rings?)
This is Gollum, a character in Lord of the Rings. You don't really have to know the whole plot to understand my point. He is completely wrapped up in desire (our good intentions), but is equally overtaken by fear that anything good will be taken away from him. Thus, he is totally alone.
In contrast, I think it's important to remember that we have a choice!
We can always choose love! Max reminded me that if I continue to choose the belief that art dealers/gatekeepers will not help me, then (by law of attraction), it will continue to be my reality.
And here is a visual aid for Love :o)
