What Goal Would Make your Heart Sing?

by Wendy Down on March 20, 2018

If you plan to join my 6-month group, I need to know what success will look like to you.

Hi again, fellow believer that life can always get better.

I’ve been taking you behind-the-scenes of my upcoming 6-month coaching group that will also form my PhD research study.

In my last two posts, here and here, I shared some snippets of theory that explains my coaching approach.  If you’re new to the idea that an adjustment on the inside yields, through physics, changes on the outside, you may enjoy reading those.

But today I want to talk about something else.

What I want to talk about is you. And what you want.

Specifically, I’m curious to know what goal you’d most like to realize over the next 6 months.  

And even more importantly, why.  

(The why matters a lot.)

Its ok if you only have a general idea right now or even if you’re still considering a few options.  Getting clear and focused is something you’ll need to do eventually, so let’s just see where you’re at with it now. 

Putting your desired goal into words – in writing – will actually move you forward on it.  

And taking the time to do it will help you gauge how into this you really are.

I’ve coached people through almost every life experience. And at its essence, my job is the same no matter what the topic.  I help folks make the shifts or changes on the inside that ready them for the life changes they seek.

When we change our inner state (the way we feel, the things we believe and our set-point responses and interpretations) on a particular aspect of life, it sets the stage for the external situation to change too.  From a consciousness-based perspective, our inner relationship to a situation is inextricably ‘entangled’ with the situation itself; in effect, our experience of the situation and the situation are one thing although we experience them as two.

For this reason, changes in the former result in changes in the latter. And since our inner world is way more malleable and responsive to intention than our outer world, making changes there first is where the greatest power or leverage is.

After so many years of working with myself and others in this way, the inner human world has become my wheelhouse, my comfort zone. I understand the geography of emotion, their energy and their connection to thoughts, events and our bodies. And I know how a person can learn to reshape their inner space – how we feel – with skill and ease.

Teaching others to become adept at renovating their inner world is my strongest skill set and my greatest joy. And most people – including young kids and those with no particular interest in the physics of it – can get very good at doing it, very fast.

So today, I’d love to know how wide-ranging (or narrow!) the topics of interest are for those of you who are ready to move forward on a particular aspect of your life.

Tell me: “If you join the coaching group and it works for you, what exactly will be different in your life at the end of the 6 months?

Or if you prefer this question, “What goal do you want to reach?”

And also, why?  WHY do you want this?

If you’re comfortable, leave your answer as a comment below.  Or, email me at wendy@wendydown.com if you’d rather tell me in private.

I really want to get a sense of the scope and range of members’ interests, so doing this will help both you and I.

’til next time, carry on being awesome 🙂

I appreciate this invitation and am thrilled to be part of this…. big Congrats and bravo, Wendy.

My GOAL is more physical health and well-being. In 2015, I had a Total abdominal hysterectomy for what turned out to be a benign ovarian tumor– and developed diabetes in the aftermath. I went grain and low carb in August 2017 — lost weight and came off the Metformin….yay! BUT winter, a 7 week kitchen and Easter Jelly Beans got me off track…. not horrible….but I really wish to be UN-Get-off-the Track-able!!

Same with my exercise program… committed to yoga and yoga dance and walking until life got topsy-turvy.

So getting to my ideal weight (18 lbs away) and maintaining a heathly way of eating and exercising is my GOAL! I would soooooooooooo love the support of your Coaching to help me achieve this. I am on my Way— but I trust that support from a Coach facilitates and accelerates the Process.

Plus, I am excited to be a part of your Adventure.

ooops– 7 week kitchen remodel

Hi Wendy. I’m late to respond, but here’s my goal for the next 6 months. The first is the one you already know about and what I’d like to be different is that Greg and I get to be together in person daily in our lives together. The other is part of that for the method to get there and that’s for me able to hear him better quietly and intuitively, because I miss understand so much of what he shows me because I’m not very psychic, and I would like to be. So that I can hear him from the inside. I also want to see everything is one like you described previously and I need to keep reminding myself to look at things that way because I understand it and I’ve seen it before a little bit. We finished reading multidimensional man and now I’m reading the 10-minute moment with Greg. I love the flower portals in multi-dimensional man. That meant a lot to me to read and I need to read it regularly. I hope your projects are going well. Thank you very much for everything.

And we want to feel safe and free and Trust/Know “God.”

Happy to hear your voice again and have you in my days. Thanks for inviting me.

My goal for six months from now, to be completely healthy and rejuvenated. My hands serene hands, my voice clear and quite, my right leg walking flexible, and weighing 10 kilos less, because my consciuosnes, health and lifestyle habits have led me to that. Also, have a basic income of 3,000 euros a month, received and created in realization, rest, success and joy of life.

Why?

Because I start a new period of life, and the absence of everything mentioned above belongs to the previous period, which I am leaving behind.

Hope I’m not too late. The big thing that consistently has been a pain for me over the last 10 years is finances. I had a period where I relied on a line of credit and credit cards to just get through the month and I have not been able to recover from that and get my balances down to zero. The relief I will feel when that debt load is disappearing will be the thing that would make me sing and do a happy dance.

Hi, Wendy.
I would like to work on the goal of good health, diet and life style. I’ve always had pretty good health, considering the tons of sugar and junk foods I’ve been consuming over the years. Now the piper is demanding payment. My blood sugar levels are way high (like diabetic high), and my energy levels are waa-a-ay low. I am spinning, rudderless, and out of control. There is so much I would like to do, and I can’t seem to pull myself together enough to focus, follow through with plans, and accomplish my goals.
At the end of 6 months, I see myself at a greatly reduced weight, eating healthily, exercising, bursting with energy and confidence, and able to help myself and my family (my geriatric parents) move into a new home that will suit all of our needs. I also see myself following through with career and avocational interests.
Looking forward to participating in your project. I was in your beta testing group for the Youthening Program. It was awesome. Thank you for cooking up another great plan and inviting people like me to participate.
Pat

Ooo, thanks for the reminder that I haven’t done this yet!
I am pleased to see someone else (Kirsten) asking for deep, regenerative sleep. That too is a deep desire for me right now. I have the comfy bed, but alas, even 11 acupuncture treatments have not helped me to experience renewal at night. I can feel my system “churning”, and that also feels like what’s still causing the hissing in my ears. Would LOVE to tune it all down a notch, and to be a more “fully peaceful” presence, to the benefit of all beings.

Kirsten March 27, 2018 at 7:45 pm

To have a painfree and deep regenerating sleep again in a cozy comfortable bed with ,for my body ,the perfect comfortable matress and pillow .
That goal would make my heart sing After years with uncountable nights full of pain,exhausting insomnia and desperation.

I just released a book in January that I would to get out to many many people. It is a Law of Attraction made easy through Shamanic Journeys. Title: The Divine Abundance Portal Activations. From what I am told, it is encoded with technology that helps people change inherited patterns on up to now very easily. Just follow the shamanic journeys each day.
I also am creating a new class – Quantum Reiki to begin teaching this summer, and of course clients that I see throughout each week. I have been on hold with a house/office addition and remodel. So my business has sort of gone into ghost mode – now I want to bring it all back on line! Thanks! Pat

If I joined the coaching group and it worked for me,I would be livinng my life as an “out” creative and healer who helps people, particularly parents, educators and helping professionals, release their own trauma so they can live freely. And in turn they can support the next generation. I’m ready to fly, write books, coach and teach workshops.why? because I see how triggered adults perpetuate trauma, and happy adults make for happy healthy thriving kids. In six months I see myself coaching people I used to be colleagues with, and consulting.

Linda Dodrill March 27, 2018 at 4:24 pm

Not sure how, but I’d like to move to NV and be financially solvent enough to require zero job, so I could provide assistance to my mom (parkinson’s) and dad (back surgeries) who are now in their 80s, and enjoy their company and reconnect deeply with them before they pass on. Currently in FL with a husband who refuses to move, loves the weather and boating…

Kim March 22, 2018 at 4:25 am

I’d like to complete my weight loss journey. I can see the finish line but feel like I’m walking through water to get there. 19 lbs to go.

I want this goal because it’s been unfinished business in my life for quite some time and I want the new wardrobe when I get there. 🙂

Cindy March 21, 2018 at 4:01 pm

Forgot to say my “why”
This would give us the security of what we’re experiencing at the moment in our hotel along with the space from which to create fun,interesting,life enriching experiences.We love feeling secure and welcomed and interested and alive and thrilled and sure!

Cindy March 21, 2018 at 3:54 pm

My son and I to be in a stable,loving,inviting,warm,fun,beautiful,cannabis friendly,place of our own for at least the summer…for free or bartering or cheap…or…..something even more awesome and just right for us.

Wendy Down March 21, 2018 at 2:52 pm

I just want to share a short note of thanks and acknowledgement to everyone who has responded to my question here and by email. I want you to know I’ve printed off your response and have it in hard copy with your name highlighted on my desk. I am touched by the sincerity and honesty in the words I’m reading. I am inspired by what I’m reading. I am going to take it in and will be in touch personally with each of you when I know how I want to respond.

I’m thrilled, for exactly the same reason so many of you are telling me you want; to be free to be yourself and know that sharing that is helpful to others. Stay tuned!

Caroline March 21, 2018 at 7:25 am

Hi Wendy,

If I joined the coaching program….

About a year ago during a meditation I was literally bought out of it with an idea – $10 healings – group healing working on the groups consciousness, that I would do once a fortnight for $10 – weird I know but it was a very powerful thought…. I went as far as registering the facebook website names etc but that is it…… so I would like to get that up and running and for them to be hugely successful. For people to feel a significant shift during and after and to be known as a great energy recharge so people keep doing them.

Why?
To show I can. To show it can be done. To break down more and more of societies blocks to this kind of work. To prove to myself the work I can do with consciousness. For fun.

So I see myself in 6 months having organically and easily grown this idea with no stress on my part in any way, to a minimum of 10,000 people a healing.

Caroline :))

Nancy March 21, 2018 at 12:07 am

I would LOVE to be able to generate enough income to replace my salary/pay for benefits thru my blogging, potential energy work practice, write a book or 2, and then have a freer schedule. I’ve been working since I was 14, now 61. I’d love to let go of that. I’m sick of working at a “job”. I’m just wanting to do different things, travel some, and feel less confined in how I generate income! I want to move on~~~ and know everything will keep growing $$$ steadily and know my universe supports me 🙂 Thanks Wendy!!!

Michelle taylor March 20, 2018 at 9:00 pm

Hi Wendy ,
My goal is to stand confidently in the power and highest potential I have as a human being and KNOW that my perceptions change everything . Then as I do this I can share in my coaching business that knowing so people could follow their hearts desire and know that what they read in personal development and quantum physics is not a fairy tale. As i help others I become abundant and live the life i am here to live.

Susan March 20, 2018 at 5:50 pm

Wendy,

Remember the Get Known Now online class where we met? Back then, you suggested to me that sexual abuse survivors could heal as if the abuse had never happened. That was too big a claim for me to make because I could not back it up, so I put it aside.

As a survivor myself I’d like to manifest the truth of that claim. Yes, I have much healing for which I am grateful but I can’t say I live as if the abuse never happened. And I want to.

However, I don’t want to lose the gifts wrought from the healing journey. Is it possible to live as if the abuse never occurred and still retain the gifts and connection to other survivors? I don’t know.

But, if it can be done and I’m able to experience and understand how to do this I can share it with other survivors. Why? Because my love, passion and purpose in this life is to let survivors know they can Evolve…Beyond Sexual Abuse. My own healing supports this belief.

If I can support the claim, through my own experience, that survivors can heal as if the abuse never happened then my purpose here will have been met.

Am I asking too much of myself? I hope not.

If I joined the coaching group and it worked for me, I’d like to overcome my fear of feeling emotions. At present I fear emotions, especially big ones, because it seems I end up in physical pain afterwards. Some of that is literal physiology – tightening of certain areas of my body triggering issues with internal adhesions from past surgery, but some is just fear of feeling that much ever again. However, with the fear and reluctance to feel, the very emotions that could drive me forward – passion, will, determination – have been blunted, muted or numbed.

In 6 months the difference would be feeling freely without fear of repercussions; harvesting and investing those emotions into experiences I want and choose.
