Last night I was working on my computer and decided to listen to HayHouse Radio online. I came across a show hosted by NLP expert Michael Neill, author of You Can Have What You Want (same name as the show).
It was interesting how he coached people in identifying ways to move forward in their life and listen to their intuitive guidance. Neill emphasized asking specific questions to elicit guidance and they mostly focused on fun.
He suggests you decide what you want to create in your life, then ask two questions:
1. What needs to happen? (what’s the outcome?)
2. What can I do? (variations of this question includes What would I love to do? What’s the next step? What’s the easiest thing to do now? What’s the most fun?)
Let’s face it, most of us don’t ask what we would enjoy doing. Most people see their to-do list as drudgery and feel they can’t have fun until later. If this sounds like you, be patient with these questions. You may have to ask yourself this daily for a while before you begin receiving guidance.
Don’t let yourself get bogged down with how to do what you want or why you feel you can’t do what you want to do or what happened in the past.
Instead, ask yourself the question…Wouldn’t it be nice if…(you could do what you wanted)? Focus on the ideas that feel fun or get you excited. That emotional response is your guidance that you are headed in the right direction.
Lighten up and look for ways to have more fun and create the life you really want to live!
