Tapping into Your Mentor   Leave a comment

Think of the special people in your life who have touched you in a profound way.

To start our exploration, tap into those people who have helped you in the physical world. They might have been your guides, inviting you to new places, new ideas. The gatekeepers, who opened doors for you, unknown to you before entering.
My list of gatekeepers is huge, when I think of all the modalities I have experienced in my lifetime so far. One of my favorite memories is my Dad playing the guitar and my Mom is singing, when I was a baby, instilling a deep love for music in me that has lasted all the way up until now. They both were my guides, opening a world to me that is deeply inspiring.
As you think about your past and what you have attracted to you, notice all the people opening doors for you, introducing you to new ideas, methods, skills and beliefs. Guides, who took you by the hand as they made you aware of new models of the world and enhanced your map of reality.
Lets pick one of those people – who has been your guide – who has opened doors for you – and with their permission – become them for a moment. Stepping into them and becoming them fully and completely, with their way of thinking, their resources, beliefs, everything that makes them special. Just notice, how it feels to be that person. And as that person, give a piece of advise to yourself as you are opening new doors of awareness right now. What can you – the guide and mentor – offer to the you who is the explorer?
Just listen as the words crystallize in your mind. Let them flow from you to the other you, receiving them fully and integrating them. As the mentor, you might say something like: “It is safe for you to explore and be open. Just trust yourself and pay attention to the signs the universe is sending to you.” Let any messages that are appropriate flow from the mentor to you. Make sure to step fully back into yourself and receive the words of wisdom from your mentor, who has opened doors for you in the past and is by your side again as your guide as you open new doors right now.
Fully absorb the advise and encouragement and breathe it in fully. Very nice. Well done.
Now think of the people in your life who have helped you learn new skills. Your teachers and coaches. The people who took the time to instruct you and help you build the strategies to become effective at the new behaviors and skills. For example, back in Germany, my English teacher in 8th grade was a specialist when it came to grammar and she made sure we learned English grammar inside out before moving on to literature. I am deeply grateful to her for her persistence in teaching me the structure of the English language as that background helped me tremendously when integrating myself in the American culture once I moved to the USA.
As you think about your teachers and coaches along your path, tune into those who made a great impact on you. Pick one of them, someone who you deeply admire for their skills and behaviors in the area you modeled from them. How did they influence you? What did you learn because of them? Notice the effect their teachings had on your life.
When you are ready, and with their permission, become one of your teachers and look back at you, the one who is transforming, growing and learning. What special piece of advise can you, the teacher and coach, offer to the you who is changing? Formulate the words and send them over, letting the other you know that as you have learned and integrated new information in the past successfully you will easily do it again with the new quest you are on.
You might say something like: “You learn so easily. You are so smart and brilliant. You can figure this out.” When the teacher has expressed their feedback and encouragement become yourself again fully and completely. Make sure you step back into your own shoes, and then receive the beautiful message from your mentor. That’s right.
Notice any difference in you as you now had the experience to receive feedback from two of your special mentors. Lets add one more person, a very special being who has touched you in the most profound and loving way possible. Someone who has awakened you, and encouraged your soul to show up in this world. A person who has deeply inspired you.
The very first person who comes to mind when I ask myself, is my husband Shawn. He saw my potential way back when and has awakened me to the co-creative quality of the universe, many years before those words ever became trendy and fashionable. In the past he would say things to me like: “You create your own reality.” and “Everything is possible as long as we believe it.”
Think of those people in your life, who brought something to you that was so profound and inspiring that it awakened you to a new level of being. Your perception shifted and everything was different from that moment on. You were able to show up in the world in a new and enhanced way. Your light was brighter and your purpose clearer than before.
Step into those moments and remember the people by your side. Those, who deeply inspired you and were the midwives in your rebirthing process. Become them and experience from their point of view, how magnificent the transformation is they get to witness in YOU.
As your mentors, take in the whole picture – of who you are. Beyond the physical body, what you can conceive with your senses, also go deeper and notice the aura, the field of energy around you, your connection to the universe, as a being of oneness with the universe, a manifestation of spirit in its most beautiful form. That .. Is you…
From the space of the mentors who have awakened you, let a message come to you, easily, like a river naturally flowing through a landscape. A message that is deeply inspiring, and encouraging you beyond any doubt or limitation you might encounter. A deep inner wisdom. Knowing yourself and knowing your connection with all that is.
Receive those gifts from your awakeners, teachers and guides, the people who have deeply inspired you and helped you on your path. As you are becoming yourself again, fully and completely, thank all of the people in your life who have touched you in a profound manner and helped you become who you are now.
Look around you and notice the amazing support system you have in place. All of your guides and mentors are with you all the time. Even if those people are not in the same place where you live. And some of the people who have moved on to the next plane. They are still with you as you hear their advise in your mind, have conversations with them, are able to ask them questions and can feel their hugs.
Think of the times when it is especially useful for you to remember your mentors advise and feedback. Give yourself the opportunity to tap into their encouragement as you grow and learn.
Now you have a firm foundation to stand on as you start exploring your relationship with yourself and your ancestors, all reflected in your personal health and wellbeing.
