I used to ask clients what they wanted. What they desired. I wanted to hear their dreams.
I don't ask any more.
I don't ask because so very often what we want. What we invest in. What we wishhopepray for is not what we want.
It's what we think we should want.
It's what we hope will make us worthy. Lovable. Whole.
It's what we think will stop the pain.
I used to ask clients what they wanted and they would tell me.
We would work towards it until they hit the same walls they always hit.
Except this time we would do the work. We would journey to their depths. We would live in the stories they were told. We would love the pain that rose up.
When we were done, things were different.
What they wanted was different.
And creating it wasn't a problem, because the destruction of what kept them from their Truth. Their Knowing. Their Self...it was well under way.
My work is no longer about what we want.
My work is the unravelling.
My work is the destruction.
My work is about clearing away whatever is in the way.
So that creation can happen based on what we actually desire, not what we think is going to save us.
