Experimenting with Waiting | In the Beginning

experimenting with waiting - human designI was a relatively successful business coach when I learned about my Design. It was suggested to me that I start very simply, to practice “waiting” in traffic when driving my car, and in grocery store lines. OK, that could be fun, but what about my business? In business, we are taught that it’s up to us to make things happen, and so I was curious about how this would work in real life.

I started to experiment with “waiting” at networking events. I already had a policy to only attend events that I was drawn to. I added one more ingredient. When I walked into the room, instead of initiating conversations like a “good networker” does, I found a comfortable spot in the room or at a table, and simply hung out. If someone approached me, I talked to them but otherwise I initiated nothing. This, right there, took all the pressure off and yielded some pleasant results. A couple of people, did, indeed, approach me and I enjoyed some good conversations.

Some people take a full-on plunge into the deep end of the pool, and let go completely. Within a week of their HD reading they have opted out of everything they’d built their life on. This was not my way. However, 3-and-a-half years into the experiment, my body responses landed me in Sedona, Arizona. THAT is when I jumped ship, although I didn’t know that’s what I was doing until after I moved here.

For 2 solid months I couldn’t even sit down at my computer for more than 30 minutes on any given day, and doing even that was painful. I did not fight it. I was curious about what was happening but I allowed my body to guide my actions.

Surrender is the key.
