Future Flash

Every so often, I get one of those flashes of myself in the future. It’s usually of me doing something I can’t possibly reconcile at the moment. (Though I admit, the body swap sex flash? Oh, yeah, I’ve tried to resolve that one to see my guy’s face! Guess I’ll have to wait for empathy at its best.)

The Long-Awaited Honest-to-God Secret to Being Happy

For a moment today, though, I saw myself with a series of books and workbooks but those weren’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. I’m the one who’s always behind the stage, orchestrating, making sure things happen just right for the person in the spotlight.

In this flash, I’m the one out front, and my voice— my thin little voice in my weak fifth chakra—-is vibrant in that deep and resonant Priestess-voice way I don’t often use.

Though I  have  routinely  done  workshops  for  past decade, this  is different somehow.  It’s motivational…it’s spiritual…it’s….gee, how is it different?

Then it strikes me. It’s not free. I’m giving motivational speeches and seminars, and they are well-attended and a definite source of income.

Writing,  creating,  coaching,  publishing,  organizing, coordinating…yes.  But  motivational   public  speaking  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.
