For many years as I created my blogs, articles, teleseminars, videos, webinars and even my own blogging tribe, I thought there was a right way and a wrong way to attract clients, customers, colleagues, joint ventures, or even speaking engagements. That seemed to be the message I heard over and over again from the many high energy, success oriented and wealthy online and offline coaches and entrepreneurs I had observed and trained with.
I heard over and over again that I should not attempt to do it alone, that I would need to work with a coach. Over the past several years I have certainly received my share of coaching, most of it quite good although sometimes given to me before I was ready or able to implement in a big way. When I found myself spending more and receiving less, I stepped back and thought about what is really going on.
This afternoon I received a phone call from a client who had only come to me for 2 sessions. The first session was an intake, a time in which I ask lots of questions and encourage the client to reveal significant issues and relationships in the past and present. In this case, the second session involved somatic psychotherapy, an opportunity to explore the meaning of life issues as reflected in the body’s responses.
This Work Is Incredibly Powerful
As a client allows him or herself to be seen and heard and understood. In this work, there is a delicate sense of intimacy that develops over time. The process cannot be rushed and the opening up can be quite revealing, if not a bit scary. And there are these moments of pure resistance, times when the client is afraid of being exposed to his or her way of being in the world that may have worked in the past for survival but is no longer beneficial.
So this client had a taste of this powerful work but left the session asking a question reminiscent of an old song that I used to love: “Is that all there is?” That question triggered in me a sudden realization that was so strong I felt compelled to write about it. Many clients have sort of asked that same question, wanting to have their life issues handled for them. They want to find the one therapist, the perfect coach, the ideal business associate or the one soul mate that will make their relationship dreams come true. They want to read the one article or book that will do it for them. They want to be given the tool, the words, the attitude, the simple solution that will finally transform their world. They want a magic wand, a miracle worker, an instant gratification, and the total assurance that if they spend x number of dollars and x number of hours they will be guaranteed to receive triple or quadruple the amount of problem resolution or financial income. And all of this is expected almost instantly with literally no effort on their part.
I Have Looked For Quick Fixes and Magic Wands
Yes, I have fallen prey to that same mentality. I have chosen to go to psychic readers to hear that there was nothing I could do about the problem, after all, a curse had been placed upon my life. All that was needed was for me to pay an exorbitant amount of money and candles will be lit to remove the curse. I have also gone to receive hundreds of private counseling, body therapy, somatic therapy and body psychotherapy sessions. Not one of these sessions instantly healed my personal and relationship issues. I have spent a lot of time and a lot of money getting “coached” on how to build my online business, get my book published, get high paying speaking engagements, create high converting videos, build my email list and become a sought after online celebrity.
Finally, finally, finally – I have discovered THE SECRET to creating everything I want and desire and need in my life. For me, it is not just a matter of the simple law of attraction. Knowing what I want and sitting back expecting it to be delivered to my doorstep does not work. Changing my attitude to become one of patient expectation, listening to others and showing them I care, works a little better but it is still not the key. Outsourcing, hiring someone to do all those tasks that I don’t enjoy doing, is also not the solution, although it can help me to be more organized, efficient and productive.
Want to Know the SECRET I Have Discovered?
You have probably heard this before. What I’m about to share is certainly not new. It is not even new to me. My Love Me, Touch Me, Heal Me book series that I have divided into smaller Kindle and Smashwords books, revealed the secret to me as I wrote it. The funny thing about this is that I wrote about it. I studied higher consciousness. I KNEW the answer when I spent a week at the Paradise Island yoga retreat. I was taught by Swami Vishu Devananda, Sivananda’s disciple, who had created the Sivananda Yoga Center in New York City and the retreat on Paradise Island featuring the famous sitarist, Ravi Shankar during the evening festivities. Someone said these words to me at that time: “Know that you know that you know.”
I knew the secret way back then yet it has taken me several decades to finally start to live it.
This precious secret is revealed to only those who are willing to take that long hard inner journey to self -realization. THE SECRET TO HAVING EVERYTHING IN YOUR LIFE IS TO TAKE THAT INNER JOURNEY TO SELF-REALIZATION! That’s all there is to it folks. The secret is simple. The process is a long and arduous, twisting and turning, upward and downward, internal and external struggle.
YOU ARE THE ONE YOU’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR
Becoming a successful therapist, a popular coach, a wealthy entrepreneur, a beloved parent or a happily married spouse in a long term marriage requires taking the long and sometimes very difficult road to self-understanding, self-awareness, self-appreciation, self-change and self-love. YOU are the only one who exists who can catapult your life into the dream life you imagine. YOU are the actor, director and all the characters in your own life show. YOU are your own ideal client, ideal business associate, ideal parent, and ideal intimate partner.
My Love Me, Touch Me, Heal Me Book provides you with a detailed road map for your life. The complete book and all the separate smaller books are filled with stories, research, visualizations, healing methods, guided imagery, meditations, physical exercises, writing exercises and journaling that enable you to take a complete internal journey to discovering your own value and magnificence in this world.
My Healing Through Love Seminar Series is a set of audios that guide you into exploring your relationship to yourself, to others, to your past and to your desired future. It includes some powerful guided imagery in the Q&A sessions.
My Love Touch Heal Relationship System includes a set of videos which explain how to finally love yourself, explore and enjoy the healing potential of touch, discover your own healing process, and open up to your own sensual awareness. Then we explore that subject that so many of us tend to avoid when it is personal, our sexuality, and finally our sense of our own spiritual being.
