I find it challenging to speak with people who are discussing their problems with me. For one thing, I covet my own alignment so much, that I really don’t want to listen to their problems.
I am also conscious of the fact, that I don’t want anything I say to reinforce a negative belief in them. I want all my words to be carefully chosen so that I can up-lift them.
I am learning that pre-paving works really well. If I know that I will be meeting with someone, I try to pre-pave the meeting by saying to myself. I want to enjoy the time I will spend together with A. I like this… and this… and this… about A. I want to be an up-lifter and I want that all who interact with me feel better for having met me and co-created with me.
I try, and sometimes I forget, but as I do it and it works, I find that I do it more times than not.
You see, I make a career out of giving advice…yes, I am a financial/investment advisor.
When I first started learning about how the law of attraction works, I admit, I was horrified. The question in my mind was that if I was attracting people with financial problems, did that mean that I was totally out of the vortex?
I took this question with me to the Alaska Cruise 2011, and even though I was not called to the hot seat, I did get the answer I was looking for. People were finding me not because I was on the same wavelength as them in terms of the problem, but because I was coming as the solution to their problem (asking). Whew! I breathed a sigh of relief.
So my clients do the asking and I receive the answer and provide it to them! Actually that’s a pretty exciting place to be. I love it.
That brings me to the next part, and that has to do with power of influence. For not only do I have to bring the solution to my clients, I also have to make them hear it, and then I have to inspire them to act on it. I can only do so if I exert power of influence.
The odd time I will meet someone who wants me to look after their financial affairs because they want to connect with my energy and feel that I am the right person for them. But by and large people come to me when they are out of the vortex, wanting to find a solution that will make them feel better. To be successful, I have to call them up to the emotional scale from where they are to hope, which then creates the inspiration within them to act on the advice I provide.
I always did this in my talks and seminars and as I sat with people, but now I know how it works. And now I know that the beginning point of the whole process is for me to first bring myself into alignment so that I can exert poser of influence on my clients from inside the vortex.
More recently, I have also given up creating elaborate plans for acquiring clients. I now that the law of attraction will match me up with those who are ready for me – all I have to do is to trust. I don’t need to bang my head around looking for clients – that is trying to fill in the grid – all I have to do is to relax and allow the grid to fill in! I don’t need to know where they will come from or how they will find me, I just need to trust that the universe will take care of all the details.
If you are an advisor or a sales person of any sort, this applies to you too. In fact, I think it applies to everyone, because we are all in sales! Blessings!
