Today I had a session with my coach and we had the following conversation.
My coach: “OK, I want you to try something. I’m going to teach you an exercise where you will learn how to generate feelings of love from inside yourself, rather than trying to ‘get’ love from somewhere outside yourself.”
Me: “OK, that sounds cool.”
My coach: “Pick something that’s easy to love.”
Me: “I’ll pick my cats.”
My coach: “OK, now focus on your cats. Feel the love start to flow out from your heart chakra. Feel it filling your whole body, down to your cells. Now let it expand, and grow, and start to flow toward your cats.”
Silence, as I practice.
My coach: “Aw, was that a purr?”
Me: “Um, no.”
My coach: “Oh, I thought it would have been so cool if you were doing this exercise and one of your cats came up to you and started purring.”
Me: “Yeah, that would’ve been really cool. Unfortunately, that was just the sound of me burping into the phone.”
