You May Just Get The Life That You Want
Now that I’ve been offering Reiki since February, I decided that today I wanted to share one of the most common bits of advice that come up during Reiki sessions:
Be sure to ask for what you want.
So many clients come to me for advice, clarity, the next step, etc.
But what I usually remind people of is that each of us has a posse.
A posse of guides, guardians, angels, and loved ones that are our own personal kick ass rolodex of help and support as we go through life. This amazing posse’s only job is to help us get what we want in life, if it serves the highest good of all. They are sitting around, playing cards, and just waiting for us to ask for help.
But if we don’t ask then to halt the Uno game and ask for help, we don’t get it.
In the past few years I’ve gotten better at using this amazing tool to help guide me to understand myself and what I truly want. I’ve manifested some clarity, an occupation that I enjoy, and a new home that I love.
Despite all of this awesomeness, I found myself at another weird juncture in my life this last spring. I had all of this great stuff that I manifested out of thin air by the help of my posse, and yet I still felt like I was missing something.
I knew deep down that it was because I wasn’t being honest with myself about what I truly wanted in life.
So off I was with the next request to my posse.
“Alright posse……..odd request I know…….but please show me what I want in life. Show me what it is that I’m missing.”
In true awesome posse fashion, in about two months I got my answer.
These answers usually come to us in a fashion that we normally don’t expect, and this answer was true to this rule.
It came in the form of a positive pregnancy test.
As soon as I saw this answer, I bawled for 2 hours. The reason for crying was about 20% excitement and 80% of sheer terror. This surely could not be my answer?!
How could I ever keep a baby alive? I don’t know anything about babies. I recently babysat my 9 month old niece and put her diaper on backwards.
How could I still live the life that I want and still be a good mom?
What about the freedom of not having children? I really like freedom!
After a trimester of lots of crying, joy, fear, excitement, and processing, I’m so thankful and grateful for the answer that my posse gave me. Our posse knows what’s best for us and this short journey has already been one of the most exciting times of my life……and it has really just begun.
All of these years, deep down I knew I wanted to be a mom. I was so afraid of change and letting myself be vulnerable that for 7 years of marriage I suppressed what it was that I truly wanted in my life. I encourage clients to put these fears aside and to go get what they truly want in my Integrative Health Coaching Program.
So my posse decided that it was finally time for ME to put the money where my mouth is.
The moral of the story:
Be careful what you wish for. Your wish just might come true.
Have a happy, healthy day
