7276240_sLast night I got an email from my good friend Jen Duchene after she received my weekly Cosmic Transitions Report (don’t get it yet? You can subscribe over on the right) saying that I am in my genius zone. Now I don’t say this to toot my own horn - okay maybe a little - after all we all SHOULD be proud of our achievements when we have worked to get where we are now.


When I embarked on this leg of the journey to finding my ‘thing’, I won a coaching session with the fabulous Britt Michaelian. At the time I had not even embarked into the world of coaching. This happened almost immediately after this interview that came as part of the package that I won. It was clear from our session that the world of coaching was for me. I love listening and giving others tools to help them create their own transformation. It took time to find MY coaching focus, however.


Being new to the coaching world I didn’t realize at the time what a valuable session Britt gave me. But much of what we talked about stuck with me throughout the years. After the coaching session Britt very kindly sent me a copy of the book “The Big Leap” by Gay Hendricks.


At the time I had not heard of Hendricks but I devoured the book and in it he asks 3 questions in order to make your journey into the Zone Of Genius. The questions are:


  1. Am I willing to increase the amount of time every day that I feel good inside?
  2. Am I willing to increase the amount of time that my whole life goes well?
  3. Am I willing to feel good and have my life go well all of the time?


Something stuck and I ‘got willing’ as Hendricks suggests. It took me three years to really make the big leap but I said yes and I started to move past my ‘Upper Limit Problem’. I practiced living in positive energy, I focused on me and what made me feel good. I slipped back many times and let fear and my ego get in the way. I still have slips.


More and more, however, I feel good. I feel happy more than not. I am more able to see the positive in any situation. And finally I am doing what I love and what makes me feel good. I love doing astrology readings and coaching clients using their Cosmic Blueprint. It gives me tingles. I am also happier than ever in all areas of my life. No more shoulds (or less) and leaping into that Zone Of Genius, where everything flows, with abandon. Man, it feels good! And the best thing? The more I feel this way, the more it helps others and the more abundance flows my way. Serving yourself first really works.


How about you? How do you answer those three questions above? Be honest now. It’s easy to say yes and do nothing towards it. Are you ready for the journey to your Zone Of Genius? You can get the book here if you haven’t read it. I think I’ll read it again!
