This is why people say, when asking for spiritual guidance, it pays to be specific. I was no longer wondering what I could do, I was now desperate to work out what I SHOULD do. The opportunities and possibilities overwhelmed me and even though I was consumed with confusion, I managed to stumble across a lifeline. Transformative mentor Nicola Price had launched a new clarity session offer, which was exactly what I needed and fast.
Clarity has been a major focus for me for the last month; however, I don’t think I’ve ever stopped to consider the process of reaching clarity. I guess some people would say that gaining clarity means focusing on what you want and getting specific. But what if you’re like me and don’t know what you want or feel like you want too many things all at once?
This is exactly what I talked about with Nicola. I opened my mouth and allowed all the overwhelm and angst to pour out. I talked nonstop about the possibilities I’d been thinking about and all the opportunities that have come my way. I guess you could call it an energetic dump of the crap that was clogging up my mind. Nicola, in her amazingness, was able to hold my mind crap for me and allow some space in my mind to clear. So you see, I don’t think clarity is focusing, I think it’s about clearing your mind space so you can focus.
Nicola’s listening ability has a transmuting power to it. We all know when we are being listened to, deeply listened to, from a place of love, acceptance and compassion. We also know when we not being listened to. When someone’s eyes have glazed over as they make listening “noises” and are waiting to speak.
Something strange happened as I released the feelings of overwhelm that had been churning inside of me. As I gave the thoughts a voice and spoke them out loud, space opened up inside of me to receive an insight. I was hearing internal thoughts from the outside in. I spoke it, my ears received it and then I was able to receive an intuitive answer. Perhaps this will be an important way for me personally to bring clarity to my life. To write down my problems, speak them out loud and hear a response from my internal place of wisdom. I'm excited to try it going forward but I wouldn’t have realised this without Nicola’s amazing ability to hold space.
When the answers weren’t coming to me as I talked, Nicola would ask me enquiring questions which allowed me, again, to find my internal wisdom. Perhaps it doesn’t sound like much to have someone listen to you and ask questions. Isn’t that what therapists do? Look, I went down the therapist path for two years in my mid twenties and I can tell you I didn’t make a quarter of the progress in solving my own problems in a session with her than I did with Nicola. There is a lot of unseen skill involved in holding space for someone with the intention of allowing their inner guidance to shine through. Like knowing when to speak, when to wait or when to ask a question. This is not something that can be learned from a text book. Nicola’s ability in this area is a part of who she is and has unfolded from her own lived experience. It’s one of her gifts of being, a part of her powerful purpose. To be able summon the inner wisdom of those who are called to her.
I used to think I just wanted someone to tell me the answers in life but I have learned over time that all the golden advice I need is inside of me. Nicola did not short change me on my gold, she allowed me to cash in on the richness of my own wisdom. Thank you Nicola.
With a clear head and heart full of gold.
