Most people who engage me for Life and Business Alchemy
coaching, attend my programs, or read my book are looking
to make some sort of change.
Common wisdom says that change is hard, and that it
takes a long time.
And often, that’s true—especially if you follow the
common wisdom about how to create change (you know:
set goals; take action toward those goals; work hard;
no pain, no gain…yada yada)
But the common wisdom is wrong. At least, if you
want to experience transformational change. Right now.
In order to bring transformational change about,
we need uncommon wisdom.
The uncommon wisdom I’m talking about is not new.
In fact, it’s been around for eons.
It’s just that hardly anyone actually applies it.
Mystics, shamans, radical rabbis, medicine women,
monks, druids and priestesses have been saying it forever:
Change your consciousness; change your life.
But how do you DO that?
Ah, here’s where we see the importance of asking
the right question.
Because, by focusing on doing, we’re back to the
well-worn path of common wisdom.
DO-ing is far less important than the BE-ingness
out of which the doing arises.
In other words, you must first connect with your
Source, the Essence of All that Is, the Divine
Wisdom that lives in you, and BE that, just for a moment.
When you re-member who you are in this way, you
realize that all the external things you thought
you needed to change (including how much money you
make, the state of your relationships, your habits,
your career, how much you weigh…you get the idea now,
right?) are irrelevant.
Because all of those things are only manifestations
of your inner state of being.
And who you are in any given moment changes everything.
So here’s an example of the sorts of question that
Who do I want to BE?
And what would THAT PERSON do, right now?
Far out, huh?
You don’t have to take my word for this, Kimberly.
Just play around with it and watch what happens.
And if you are going to DO anything today, do
whatever you need to do that allows your natural
state of wonder and receptivity to emerge.
And then, from that state of wonder and receptivity,
follow wherever you’re led.
For me, here are some things that have reawakened
my wonder recently: getting my butt back on the meditation
cushion even though it’s been feeling really, really
hard lately; savoring delicious healthy food; laughing
until I cried with a friend; journaling; lying in the
hammock reading a good book; closing my eyes and listening
to the cicadas, crickets and birds.
May a state of wonder lead you into the life you love!
And if you are looking for another fun and truly
transformational way to change everything right now,
I hope you will join Dr. Samantha St. Julian and
myself for an intimate gathering of spiritual adventurers
at Synergia Level I training later this month!
We’ll be teaching a few students (maximum 10 people
per class) how to relieve pain, clear old patterns,
ask more expansive questions, create new possibilities
and even open the door to new realities!
We have a few spots left; the deadline to enroll
for this month’s class is September 19th.

Hope to see you there!
Love and Blessings,
