One of my business goals for 2010 is to deepen my local network. Poet and corporate consultant David Whyte is fond of saying, “Sometimes the truth depends on a walk around the lake.” Having a trusted a colleague to stroll around the lake with can be just the thing to take things to the next level. Besides, hugs over Skype aren’t the same.
Last night, I put this intention into action by going to a new networking event. I walked into a noisy crowd of over 70 people with only a few familiar faces. As a relative introvert, this was a bit overwhelming. Recognizing that overwhelm wasn’t going to lead to the results I was hoping for, I took a few moments to get centered.
As soon as I did, I noticed a friend I hadn’t seen and made my way over to her table. When she saw me she said, “Oh my goodness! We were just talking about you and EFT!” Turns out, she was sitting with a colleague who has a consulting business. This consultant had recently began experimenting with using EFT in her business and was thrilled to meet me. We spent much of the night having a high energy conversation about EFT and applying energy psychology in business settings.
Synchronicity is VERY Attractive
Back in the 1930’s, Carl Jung created the term “synchronicity” for events like what happened last night. He observed, “when coincidences pile up in this way, one cannot help being impressed by them.” Imagine being the woman I met last night and having someone who has experience with something that is a leading edge in your business manifest before your eyes. How likely is it that you would forget that?
As I have increasingly cleared my own limiting beliefs, these type of ‘coincidences’ have been happening more and more often. And, my experience is that Jung is absolutely right – each time it happens, people are deeply moved.
How to Attract More Everyday Miracles
Now I don’t know anyone who can walk on water or conjure up a 7 course meal at the wave of her fingertips. At the same time, I do see that conscious business owners often share this experience of marvelous surprises happening increasingly more often. Are these accidents or is there anything we can do to increase how often they happen?
Let me be clear that I don’t think we can MAKE things like this happen. What I think we can create are the conditions in our lives for synchronicity to happen more often. Here are 3 strategies for infusing your success plan with more everyday magic:
- Clear the beliefs about having to MAKE your success goals happen. In most business thought, there is an underlying belief that for you to succeed, you have to MAKE it happen. Think of the term, “Self-made millionaire”. When we buy into these understandings of success, we are setting ourselves up for stress and struggle. My favorite way to clear these kinds of beliefs is with EFT, Money Matrix and other energy psychology tools.
- Appreciate the synchronicity that has already happened in your life. Every one of us has had some experiences of synchronicity in our lives. Prime your everyday miracle pump by bringing these experiences to mind with as much sensory details as you can. Re-member literally means “to re-embody”. Writing or drawing these experiences are a great way to do this. Also, be on the lookout for any little magical events that happen each day and appreciate the heck out of them. Don’t limit yourself to the area of success and money – notice it in all areas of your life.
- Invite More Magic Into Your Life. My favorite way to do this is with Law of Attraction tools like the Focus Wheel. For instance, after last night’s experience, I did a Focus Wheel this morning on the theme of “There’s more and more everyday magic in my business.” We can deliberately attract more of what we want in our life.
For thousands of years, spiritual people have observed that it is possible for us to increase our ability to be in what athletes call “The Zone”. When we are in this state, both the number and the magnitude of the synchronicities in our lives go up. Infusing your success plan with more of this energy is both fun and effective.
