Every so often, I get one of those flashes of myself in the future. Itâ€™s usually of me doing something I canâ€™t possibly reconcile at the moment. (Though I admit, the body swap sex flash? Oh, yeah, Iâ€™ve tried to resolve that one to see my guyâ€™s face! Guess Iâ€™ll have to wait for empathy at its best.)
For a moment today, though, I saw myself with a series of books and workbooks but those werenâ€™t the focus, just a supplement. The focus was, I was center stage, with hundreds of eyes on me.
That alone is a wild and crazy idea. Iâ€™m the one whoâ€™s always behind the stage, orchestrating, making sure things happen just right for the person in the spotlight.
In this flash, Iâ€™m the one out front, and my voiceâ€” my thin little voice in my weak fifth chakraâ€”-is vibrant in that deep and resonant Priestess-voice way I donâ€™t often use.
Though I Â have Â routinely Â done Â workshops Â for Â past decade, this Â is different somehow. Â Itâ€™s motivational…itâ€™s spiritual…itâ€™s….gee, how is it different?
Then it strikes me. Itâ€™s not free. Iâ€™m giving motivational speeches and seminars, and they are well-attended and a definite source of income.
Writing,Â creating, Â coaching, Â publishing, Â organizing, coordinating…yes. Â But Â motivationalÂ Â public Â speaking Â is probably the last place I would have expected to find future self.
But in a way, it makes sense. The words Life Transformation Coach reverberate in the distance as I shake away the instant vision and slip back into the present.
