Let’s talk about gold thinking. I need gold thinking. Maybe we all do.
I’ve been craving a good coloring session, one where I sit down in quiet and color in a mandala. I’ve really been craving metallic colored pencils, especially gold and rose gold. Hmmm. Why?
I think it’s because I am spending a lot of time listening to others. Listening to their opinions. Looking for their wisdom. Looking for answers. There is so much unknown right now. I’m caught up in that.
I go looking for people who agree with me, so that they can confirm what I think I know. Why am I doing that? If I already know what I think and believe, why am I looking for external confirmation?
The more I listen to other people – even those who agree with me – the more I begin to doubt myself. This is what self-doubt looks like for me, and when they show up, I definitely need gold thinking.
Gold thinking is all about tapping into our inner wisdom, our inner knowing. Gold thinking is about finding the insight and self-value that brings commitment and contentment. Trusting in our deep knowing. Truth.
Gold thinking calls for some introspection – pausing to ask ourselves some key questions and looking inward – not externally – for answers.
Here are some great gold questions:
- What do I really, really know? What’s one thing?
- What are my core values, the things I know are true?
- What has my life taught me, what wisdom have I gained?
- How can I accept the unknown without being afraid?
- What am I making my self-doubt mean? How is it helping me? How is it holding me back?
- What if / how can I listen to my own inner wisdom, and don’t look outside for validation?
- What if the wisdom really is inside me?
It is. The gold is inside you.
In the meantime, remember these things: You are loved. We are all loved. Let’s all be kind. And in all things – progress, not perfection!
Love and light,
Yes, I am still doing 1 on 1 coaching, and I have a couple of open spots right now. I’ve also combined the Anxiety Bootcamp Online program with Individual Coaching to create a package – and it’s on sale through Thanksgiving. Why yes, it can be given as a gift!
