Pixie dust. Clients will sometimes hire me thinking that the act of hiring a coach will somehow magically transport them into the life they most desire. While signing on for life coaching is an incredible step in the process of renewal and self-discovery, I fully attest that I bring no pixie dust, no glitter into the equation. Yet, the idea, the possibility, the spirituality of what that dust implies is within every coaching session. Why? The answer is simple.
The work we are willing to do and the actions we are willing to take to renew, refresh and move toward our best version of ourselves is a choice. We all have the ability to change what we think and how we do something. We cannot change what other people think or what they do or do not do…but we can control and therefore opt in to change ourselves. Change just naturally comes with a side dosage of discomfort. One of the best ways to work through this discomfort is to embrace our own special potion of pixie dust. We all this special power available to us. Filed into the scrapbooks of our minds, we have the ability to create and manifest thoughts that strengthen us. These memories, accomplishments, and small exchanges that ignited us before can once again lift us up and push us just a little bit forward. This special dust comes from within us. It is activated when we trust who we are and when we authentically believe in what we can do and accomplish. When we trust and believe we manifest positive energy right back at ourselves, and with it we create the magic of what is possible.
A few months ago I was having lunch with a friend and the conversation was so upbeat, the company so compelling, my time spent so meaningful, that I actually thought to myself afterwards…WOW…if only I could bottle that up! Then I could return to it time and again! This ability to capture outstanding moments, small successes, love, light, and glitter and then carry it forward when we need it the most is what pixie dust is all about. We all have that power. We can all gather strength, muster up joy, return to those large and small moments that make up the tapestry of our lives and use and reuse that energy to move ahead. Etched into our minds are those unique moments that support what and who we love the most. Find them. Connect back to them. These nuggets, this treasure belongs only to you.
