Last week I discovered an amazing coaching course regarding mindset.
For a while I know my thoughts have been taking control of me and my actions- like a runaway train, often with near catastrophic results.
A result of grief, or a result of my role changing as a Mum or maybe it was just Covid.
I knew I was having more bad days than good as I have suffered in the past with mindset. I needed to do something. I watched a free webinar and it changed my outlook and ideas. It focused on hypnotherapy. It was really wonderful.
The webinar was a taster of a course. A course that cost more than I have ever spent on me or a training that wasn't qualification based. (Money blocks right here!)
I was tempted, for days I came very close to signing up for it.
However some very wise business owners made me realise it wasn't the right time and I couldn't devote 5 hours a week.
Now instead of feeling deflated I decided to try and make some changes myself. I asked for recommendations and shortlisted myself to 5 books to start reading. Exploring mindset, big leaps and money thoughts. Here was my shortlist:
Luckily some where available to read now, so I started with 'Just F*cking Do It' by Noor Hibert. I chose this first as she is a psychologist
The course I had intended to complete was also led by a psychologist. It made sense, although I wasn't too keen on the title.
That night I started reading. Within 2 pages it was clear this was not what I expected- it was psychology and manifestation.
I have tried manifestation in the past briefly, but I couldn't seem to figure it out. Have you tried it?
After discovering the premise of the book I asked myself do I ditch this and move onto something else, or give it ago? I had nothing to loose.
Task 1- ask for a gift and it will come within 24 hours.
I sceptically thought I will try this and if it doesn't work I haven't lost anything.
Hour 12- I went to work. Within 30 minutes I had a sale of my new workbook. Was this the Universe's gift? Probably not after all you don't create something for a gift.
Hour 13- I waited all day and looked out for something. I knew it wouldn't be much but I looked out.
Doubt crept in... no gift.
Hour 23- I headed home, we ordered our Saturday night takeaway. And I had accepted at this point there would be no gift. Oh well I thought.
Then the takeaway arrived. The first thing they gave us was a bottle of branded Cola. My first thought was hang on this isn't ours.
I queried and the delivery driver said 'you get a free gift.'
Scepticism jumped it- they are giving it to everyone, it's normal, it's a fluke.
But then I asked myself am I right? We have ordered before and got some fortune cookies and prawn crackers, but never in 30 years have I had a complete bottle of branded Cola. Have you ever received a free bottle?
This was the gift.
It may be down to how you see things, but I knew that was the gift and the proof.
So now it's onto the next chapter ( experience to follow....)
Have you used manifestation? How has it impacted you?
