Do you ever wish you could ask for advice from someone who knows you better than anyone? Me too. I’m doing new and unexpected things so damn often that I nearly always think “I wish someone could guide me here.” Then I ask the very best person to do that: me.
YOUR POWERFUL SELF
Except: I ask the powerful me-five-years-from-now version of me.
And she has the BEST insight. Want to know how to do this for yourself?
Here’s what I do:
THESE ARE THE STEPS
1. I invite in the me that I envision five years from now. The me that is even more powerful, that has grown even more, learned even more, landed in herself even more. I really see her in the room. I feel her presence. She is so.damn.strong.
2. I get my journal and my pen.
3. I ask my Powerful Self “What message do you have for me today?”
4. I write it down.
Don’t be deceived into thinking that because it looks simple it’s not powerful. Test it out for yourself and see.
Also: sometimes I ask for guidance around specific things. My podcast. My coaching. My creative projects. My Powerful Self has never lead me astray.
She says things like: Stay the course.
Be in your loving.
Don’t make it about you.
Live each moment.
And also: You gotta get that handled, girl. Start listening more.
She doesn’t hold back, that Powerful Self of mine.
