I just wanted to share another moment in the life of a woman in transition….
A few days ago, I had some pretty incredible gifts appear “out of nowhere.” I will most certainly need to write a book to chronicle the events in my life the last two years but I wanted to share with you the powerful choice of “Acting as If.”
“Act as If” (also sometimes called “Fake it until you make it”) is a phrase and concept often recommended as a therapeutic technique for combating some forms of depression. The same technique is used in the dramatic arts as well as in creative visualization. The idea is that we can create the conditions for a desire to manifest in our life if we act as if it already does. It’s about believing in things that don’t currently exist and that may seem impossible. Beyond believing, it’s about knowing and beyond knowing, it’s about experiencing it. How do we “experience” something we don’t have? Listen to this video as I share how I get there.
Whether we call it “play time” or “prayer time,” “faith” or “imagination,” this is a powerful (mental/emotional/spiritual) tool we can use ANYTIME.
NOTE: While many people use fake it till you make it with massive success, I personally don’t respond to being fake. Part of why “acting as if ” works for me personally is because the experience FEELS real. If I cannot be real about something, I don’t want to be fake, I always want to reframe/rethink my words or ideas so that I can arrive at someplace genuine.
