I have spent a good part of my life thinking things. When people would ask me a question, my response would likely be "I think...". My point is that I was only thinking, I wasn't feeling, or sensing, or connecting with any other part of me that knows.
This used to serve me greatly when I was in my corporate life, it is how I conditioned myself to operate, and it worked. However, when I used this same approach when developing my own service-based business, that failed miserably. I was masterful at getting stuff done, that was a big part of my perceived self value in the work place.
I fondly describe that old me as a 'walking head'.
It has taken me a long time to integrate all the parts of me. And now I have discovered a way that helps me to connect with that knowing whenever I want or need.
I want to share this with you today, and I would love to hear what practices you use to connect!
But first, here is what I do with this once I'm connected.
- Before sales conversations
- Write a blog post
- FB post
- Web pages
- Talk topics
- Make a big decision (about a program, a client, my business, life)
- Get clarity on my work
While this is simple, it can be a very powerful practice that allows me to do my work from the part of me that "knows", instead of thinking so hard and creating from my brain (which is much less dimensional). ;)
So when I am experiencing being stuck, or lacking ideas, or feeling too busy, and am not able to let things flow out of me easily, I use this practice.
The Connection Practice:
I go for a walk, somewhere that feels good to my senses. For me, I like to be near water. I listen to a meditation, or just go in silence. When I have had a few minutes to let my mind and body get into the rhythm and flow of the movement, I ask myself a question.
This could be "what does my community need to hear now?", or it could be "what is my big message?", or "how can I be in the highest service?". Whatever is coming up for you as an area where you want guidance or to access your knowing.
Then I let it go. Let the thought go, let the question go. As I continue with my walk I start to have bursts of inspiration, really great ideas that just pop (or flow) into my mind. While I am walking, I will use my phone and speak things into my email to capture the content, inspiration, or wisdom.
Here are the steps:
So when I find myself over thinking, feeling stuck, or trying to "make" something happen, this is the practice I now know I can rely on to shift me into my knowing and really allow me to connect.
This is a great practice to incorporate into your day, before your sales conversations so you can access the tools, techniques, and mindsets you need to show up fully for your potential client.
I would love to hear what your practices are to connect with your inner wisdom, leave a comment below. And if you try this practice, please let me know what you experience. I have accomplished some of my most important projects out on my walk!
P.S. If you would like to feel confident and empowered during your sales conversations so you can enroll more of the right clients with ease, I invite you to register for my upcoming tele seminar.
