I said that to my coach (Alan Seale) once when he was coaching me. I need to remind myself of that daily. When I start thinking I have to make things happen, and I have to do it all myself, then those thoughts become real to me, as though there is no guidance, support, and information available. When I get quiet, go inside, ground, center, focus, and ask for guidance, it comes. Recently as I have been doing that I have been ‘hearing’, “thanks for checking in”.
When I allow myself to receive intuitive hits, insights, and inner knowing; synchronistic events come one after the other. I think of someone, they appear in their car at the cross walk where I am stepping out to cross the street (yes, that was you Shannon). I see their name on a poster in my home town and they live 1000 miles away (yes Kim, from your last ice climbing clinic in Bozeman.) I was deciding whether to take a trip to South America and found out I could book a return flight from Baltimore to Kalispell cheaper than my original flight, AND, I will get to see Cohen and Laura on my way home!
The invisible world is filled with ideas, imagination, creativity, and cool things that haven’t been thought up yet. Elizabeth Gilbert says ideas will float around until they find the right person to bring them into form. I believe that. That belief insisted that my idea for outdoor leadership retreats with Glacier National Park as a backdrop would happen whether I said yes to it or not. Fortunately, I said yes and am currently planning my 5th retreat, and 3rd coaching intensive.
I am so grateful for my seen and unseen guides. Those here in the flesh show up just when I need them. Those I can’t see are always here. I just need to remember to check in, ask, expect, receive, and act.
Whatever your version of guidance is, play with it. I’d love to hear what you experience.
