(ETA: Obviously there's more value to formal training than just being deemed an expert. Just to clarify that I'm not intending to over-simplify here.) Life experience and independant reading can do that for you too! Not to offend anyone that feels formal training for anything is important... I just happen to believe that you can get it all outside of the formal process, if you choose. Hey Penny... aren't you homeschooling your son?


Tara's doing it. I'm doing it. You can do it. You just need passion and love and a handle on your own comfort zone and limitations.

Very exciting about your practice clients! Have fun!

Ok, too much to catch up on so I don't think I'll try! I'm just going to send some love to all of you.

Thank you guys!! Yes, life is the training, isn't it? I guess part of the reasons I was asking that question is that it's likely to be asked by dh - thanks for helping me clarify my response.

I had a great "life-coaching experience" with my adult student today! He was rahter stiff in his piece, and I asked him to play it again and just imagine what it sound like if he could make it sound jsut as he wwanted. Of course, that made a huge difference! Then I asked him to imagine what his body would feel like if responded to all his musical impulses. Interestingly enough it started going so well that he got self-conscious and kind of thought "this can't be happening" - it was as if he'd manifested something beyond what he was able to allow himself to believe. He's smart enough to understand that too, so it was a cool lesson! And it made me understand how/why I can do this stuff.

[QUOTE=Zannalyn;7711047]: This is one of my favorite parts of this whole LoA journey; it's so freeing! I was raised to always look to please someone, be it my parents or God, and taught never to trust myself or my feelings or my desires. Later, I still kept some of that, looking for the "right" thing to be doing, like it was written down somewhere and I had to find it and decipher it and do it. It feels sooooooo good to be done with all that! I'm finally done trying to please some invisible authority. What I need to do is be me, and I can certainly do that! And by doing so I align with the Universe, that wondrous mysterious loving intelligence that I am a part of.[QUOTE]

:

THis is really making me think also of how we teach our kids that life's like that without meaning to. One of my challenges right now is to honor ds's feelings while still making sure that he can function in a world where most people don't think that way. I'm learning to find a balance but it takes trial and error at times.

------------but continuing to get that degree wasn't a passion ---

Now I am a life coach with two clients -- Devon and another, and I feel like a degree is the last thing I need

What I have is life experience -- I have God -given gifts of communication and of empathy and an ability to think outside the box and a willingness to serve --

You absolutely don't need a degree to become a life coach -- in fact, I think the fact that life has been my education speaks volumes more than a piece of paper (again, not putting down degrees!) ---

I have done tons of research, I gather my insights and information from sources ranging from The Bible -- to Walden -- to The Secret -- to Freud -- to Buddha -- to Maya Angelou -- to The Hicks -- and from everyone in between -- MOST of all though, THIS IS HOW I LIVE MY LIFE -- and that is something I think anyone who wants to teach LOA has to become in alignment with -- it doesn't mean my life (or me) is *perfect* -- it just means I have learned to effectively live my life according to the principles of LOA (and my personal affiliation as a Christian which for me, it goes hand in hand) and I am living for all intents and purposes a life of joy and magic and of peace and personal fulfillment (still working on the financial freedom )

I have healed myself from debilitating illness, I have healed my family relationships, I have a fulfilling, happy marriage, I am a wonderful, non-martyrous, happy mama, I am at peace with who I am, where I am, how I am, and am ready and willing to serve others who are on that journey inward and forward...

THAT, is what you need to be a life coach (imo) not a degree or a perfect life without any ups and downs or challenges --

Imagine if Terri (annikate) went to medical school before beginning her Finding Kate foundation:? www.findingkate.org

What if Amris waited until she completed journalism school or went to seminary or whatever to speak with Spirit and to write it into a book?

http://www.amris-messagesoflove.com/

Look at the amazing work Kate (katest.) does -- I don't know what degree she would have had to get before she felt *worthy* of sharing it with us! www.lovefrombaby.com



What if Pat (wu wei) waited until she had a PHD in child developement before she emparted her extremely insightful and beautiful wisdom regarding living consensually with children in harmony?

....or Melanie (koalamama) with the awesome website she is creating? I don't believe she has a degree in web design or in LOA but she friggin ROCKS...

....or Devon, with deciding to travel this summer -- sure, she HAS a degree in her field, but she is making lemonade from lemons - they said they didn't think she was going to be hired back, so she is taking the trip of her life and she will find her way when she ges back!

Or any of the other amazing women and mamas on this thread following their nudges from The Universe or from God or Spirit or Amris' magical french toast God



My point is, if you are feeling led to do that -- DO IT... don't get caught up in the hows .... anything you want to do, BEGIN IT.... the way will be shown to you!!

Here is my website if you are needing inspiration:

www.sculptyourlife.org

Happy Creating!!!
Tara, THANK YOU for this wonderful post!!

You know, the reason I want to do this is because I realized I do this for people all the time anyway - my students, my friends, family members - without even thinking about it. I always have ideas for them and resources to share, because I've always been interested in growth and all the cool stuff that's out there. I'm just going to do it more intentionally and in a more organized way.

<says that mainly for herself...and maybe someone else could use the push, lol>
: In the Canfield interview I lovve the idea of "accountability partners". that's kind of what we are for each other, the way wwe keep each other going. Maybe we should each post at least one thing we've done to manifest our dream life every day!

Sometimes people with the most letters behind their name have the most "unlearning" to do.
So, Penny -- you go girl!!!
Actually my best time in college was the five years I spent in grad school in my 30s when I first came to the US - I didn't really need a master's in violin and I never completed my doctorate (got married and pg), but I had the time of my life. I enjoyed it much more than the students who were there because going to college is what you do.

Wow. That gave me a chill...because Hamlet is dh's favorite play, and Shakespeare his passion, and this is exactly what I need to say to him (and what I always encourage him to do for himself).

I felt like I should be so grateful, but at the same time, I just wanted it OVER WITH. YESTERDAY.

Plus, I wanted to be holding her RIGHT NOW! No, not now, a minute ago! :


Oh boy, do I identify with that!! I just wanted ds safely OUT!!

Yes, well we actually are moving out of New England.

Happy April!

This is a week of fun for me too. I'm at my mom's for spring break, so I have lots of help with the kiddos. I realized last week I was completely blocking the universe, so this is the week to allow, allow, allow. allow!

Oh, and to drink margaritas with my mom.

So watching What the Bleep and Dr. Emoto's work with water has got me thinking ... anyone up for some henna-tatoo'ing of love messages? I keep thinking of the character Amanda towards the end of the movie drawing pretty hearts all over herself with what I presume to be an eyeliner pencil and thought how cool would it to be to do that with henna ... not all over (and for me at least probably somewhere that wouldn't be seen all the time) but definitely writing the message on the skin much like writing love upon water glasses. So, crazy idea? Anyone want to?

i think that's a cute idea. it got me to thinking about a tattoo i have on my right hand. years ago, i got a tattoo of a gecko on my thumb. at the time, i just chose the design just because i liked it, and not for any particular meaning. since then, i have had several people tell me that the gecko is a symbol of good luck, and adaptability. maybe my tattoo has had an influence on my life?

i haven't seen What the Bleep. i just watched Celestine Prophecy this weekend and loved it. What the Bleep is next on my list of movies to see.

I have another quick second . . .

Just wanted to post that KateSt. is just as beautiful on the outside as she is on the inside! And so is her dh and ds (especially ds!) Really, words don't describe Kate's pure, calm energy.

I'm so grateful that the Universe allowed us to finally meet.

i just googled "gecko" and discovered that it is considered a symbol of good luck and for keeping one eye on the past and one eye on the future. cool. i found a new appreciation for a tattoo i have disliked for years!

Totally! Yesterday I used my lipstick and put a small heart on my upper chest but below my neck line of my shirt ... it was cool. Okay, I'm off to research henna tatoo'ing stuff online.

How cool about the gecko! And What the Bleep is totally cool though I have seen almost all of it 2x now and still sit and say, "Huh?" in places ... it is such a deep movie.

Aww ... it sounds like you all had a wonderful time together! Here's to manifesting a huge get-together next year ... and with that I'm off to figure out why ds#2 is screaming at ds#1 outside. They obviously need some love signs painted on each other!

I love this idea. I am thinking of putting something on my belly for the baby (and me).

Honest truth - I was thinking of this very thing yesterday! I intend to find myself a henna artist and decorate my body with love.

Here are some kits ... they have stencils too. I think though I might have dh freehand some hearts on the small of my back and then get some stencils for him to so my hands or something.
post #36 of 875
I need some help dealing with anxiety. I am scared that something will go wrong where we cannot close on our dream house. Then that fear scares me that I will create that happening with my fear / lack of faith.

I need help releasing those fears, because things have been really easy in many ways, so that I feel nervous. Of course, they have been plenty hard in other ways -- we have all had the flu, both kids had rotavirus (one had two trips to the ER!), and one daughter had a UTI and my dh had a sinus infection... all in three weeks, during the busiest time of my husband's work season when he usually works 80-90 hours a week (he took time out for the runs to the hospital, though, bless him). We had major family drama with my family of origin and two dogs and my dh's grandmother died and a cat got lost. So I guess in some ways, I have a belief that good things have to be hard.


To make a short story shorter, we found our dream house on the internet, but the sellers would not take an offer that was contingent on the sale of our old house unless our old house was on the market. So I planted a FSBO sign I bought at Home Depot in the front yard and we moved out of our old house two days later (all the visitors were sort of wild -- so many calls and dropbys that I thought I would go crazy and had to get out of there), sold it four days later, closed 8 days after that, and then had to move to a hotel until we close on our new house next week.

Whoever heard of closing 12 days after planting the fsbo sign in the front yard?

I admit that I did put a St. Joseph in the yard! I guess it really works! :

As our mortgage broker said, this is much better than having two mortgages at the same time! It's nice living in a lovely two bedroom suite hotel with a pool and maid service and tons of fresh towels -- plus the hotel gave us a huge discount through my husband's employment. Still, I would prefer to already be living in our new home. Our old house was in a great location, and we had lived there for many years, so we had plenty of equity and we have all of our financial needs met.

We are going to move next week or the week after, and I am nervous about the closing. I would be happy if it were going to be tomorrow! My mortgage broker and my realtor have reassured me that everything is fine, but I need more help on a spiritual level.

Specifically, I need help from you. Can you please help me to do some release work on my fear of having a great place to live? I deserve it, and my dh and my kids certainly deserve it!

Thank you for your help.

i was at Eternal Moment bookstore yesterday and saw some LoA stickers with messages like "love and gratitude", "abundance and prosperity", and my daughter thought they were temporary tattoos. i thought nothing of it until now. cool idea.

Yep, St. Joseph worked for me! My buyers were the first and only to look at the house and even before the sign was up!

As for advice, just keep feeeeeling yourself in your new home. Feel all the excitement and wonder and pride, and any other goooood feeeling you can come up with!
