When my daughter was very young she told me a secret. She could fly but she did not want me to tell anyone because they would not believe her and then she would not be able to fly again. Honestly I wanted to believe her but I did not. I was sure this was a childhood fantasy. Of course, as her mother I supported and encouraged her hoping not to show one ounce of doubt. She looked at me and said, ” I cannot fly anymore” and so begins our journey as a child learning that we cannot do one thing or another because others tell us we can’t, they can’t or they can’t imagine that we could.
Fast forward to present time. As a business intuitive I see people decide or become programmed by others that they cannot. This energy is so strong that it automatically sticks to most of us and we work with this limit. Steve Jobs died yesterday. He was one person who did not let others lack of understanding or awareness hamper his vision. One broadcaster who knew Jobs well stated that Steve always found a way to get his goals. He described him as focused, determined, intuitive and a visionary.
On the flip side there was talk that he did not have the best social skills. As an intuitive I see his lack of concern about what others thought or believed was possible and his unwillingness to let others program him gave him a bit of a rough edge. When he met these limit makers Jobs pushed right on through their energy to pursue his vision.
The author of the Harry Potter series was rejected by eight publishers before one picked up her books. How might our world have been different if Rollins had given up and we would be without Harry Potter?
Talked Out of Vision
A young client, Jeff, is a successful American professional working in South American. Jeff told me his passion and original goal was to be a veterinarian. His dad told him back in high school that he could not make a living as a veterinarian so Jeff went to business school. As Jeff told me this story I saw that he will find a way in the future to pursue his passion for caring for animals.
Sarah wanted to start an IT company. Her family and friends tried to talk her out of it fearful that she would fail. Failing was not Sarah’s concern. She was excited by the challenge and, in fact, enjoyed that she chose to do things others could not imagine her being able to do. Sarah did this as a child winning and losing many skate boarding competitions. To her starting this company at such a young age was just another competition. She won! She now runs a successful IT company.
Take the time to stop and be aware of the limits (others’ concepts) that have programmed your space and unconsciously or consciously limit your success.
I ask all my clients to use meditation as one of their business practices. Meditation is beneficial on many levels but most importantly it teaches us to visualize. When we have a strong vision it will surely manifest regardless of any logic or others concepts.
In meditation I teach my clients to imagine or see a rose in their mind’s eye. This is an exercise to open clear seeing and to visualize. For those who are certain enough I challenge them to see the rose so clearly that it manifests.
Best wishes on your success, Kay
