Do you ever miss staying up late at night talking with your friends at sleepovers when you were younger? I remember when one of my clients told me about her dream to have close girlfriends again. She missed the connection she had in her relationships to other women when she was younger. As she grew up, and had a child of her own, she saw it was getting harder and harder to find the time for those kinds of friendship and connection.
This client was doing amazing work to make changes in her life, in her relationship to food, in growing her business and in taking better care of herself.
She saw that often she would turn to food for comfort was when she felt a loss of connection and friendship, so she was ready to cultivate more women friends in her life.
She was taking time out of her day to get really clear on what she wanted and needed. Together, we made a plan, and I gave her an assignment to start a conversation with a new woman at the gym, and reach out to an old friend who recently moved to her area.
The next time we talked, I asked, "So how did it go for you?"
She replied, "Meredith, you aren't going to believe what happened. I swear, this manifestation stuff really works. So, you know how I was telling you about how I wanted to be closer to women like I was when I was younger? Having slumber parties and girl time?"
"Well, just this week on Monday night, all three of my clients cancelled their appointments. I suddenly had an open schedule. My son was staying with his father for the night, and I thought, 'I'll just have an evening to myself...' Then out of no where, a friend I haven't talked to in years called me up and said, 'My husband's out of town, and I treated myself to a night at a beautiful lodge in Marin. Would you like to join me here?'"
"Amazing! So did you?"
"Yes! and suddenly I was swimming in a gorgeous pool, my friend was treating me to dinner, and we stayed up late slumber-party style holding hands in bed sharing our dreams and desires. It was EXACTLY what I wanted!"
We both laughed and laughed at the amazement of what happened, but deep down, I wasn't surprised.
Ask, "What does my heart want, above all else?" Then begin loving yourself and watch the fears, self-doubt and negative beliefs clear away.
The magic happens where courage and self-love intersect.
She had taken the time to connect to what she really wanted, what that would feel like, she was loving herself first and clearing away her fears and suddenly, her desires were showing up on her doorstep.
