Yet here I am sitting down with these parents and looking into how they could create the relationships with their children as magical. I just sometimes am blown away by my own moxie. I have sat in front of a room of managers, having never worked in a corporation, and woken them up to ways that they could be incredible managers. I have sat down with doctors and lawyers and candlestick makers and had the stuff to somehow provide value and even some powerful transformational shifts to these people in areas of their lives that I have no direct expertise or experience in. Sometimes I just have to sit back and wonder for a minute how I pull that off.
I have to think back to my younger days when I really thought that I needed “credibility” in all the “areas” of interest that the people I touched carried. I shuffled and danced and felt like a fraud and a fake for a number of years, until it hit me. All of my training and my wisdom and my areas of interest that I have developed my entire life lead me to this point of brilliance. I do know how to get inside and wake people up to their own hearts desire. I do know how to see and close the gap between where a person is and where they want to be. I do know how to awaken consciousness and awareness of what is important and then work on fanning the flames of what ever that is. Once I became clear on that I lost all my need to establish credibility or to prove myself. Once I found the thing I was really good at I no longer had to prove myself. Once I found my purpose and was able to plant a powerful stake for everything I did I know longer needed to struggle so hard to try and learn things I thought I needed to learn in order to “establish my credibility”. I could just trust that as long as I was on purpose and oriented around a clear stake I would not only be fine, I would create powerful transformation and make a difference where ever I went.
So that is where I am headed in a few minutes. To make a powerful difference with these parents. To hand them a shiny new perspective on what it is they already do very well. To be a magician that makes their world more magical. Cool job.
