The other day, my coach urged me to get really clear on who and what kind of person I wanted to work with as a coach/healer. I’ve done this exercise for dating (and landed myself a wonderful partner last Fall!) , but I’d never considered it for calling in my idea clients!
I decided to sit down with myself and visualize/feel into all of the qualities I felt would make a good fit for someone ready to work with me professionally. I did this with a pen, and in my Big Journal. First, I noticed the qualities coming up for folx I don’t want to work with… that felt MUCH easier! But since this is a practice of CALLING IN, I dug a little deeper and asked myself, “What would be the opposite of this quality, or the positive version of this quality?” Once I got into the flow of this, the list unfolded before my eyes faster than my hands could even keep up with!
Without further adieu, I present to you, a description of My Ideal Clients:
