For the past six months, I have been observing how my coaching has shifted as a result of my increased understanding of The Law of Attraction, in particular – the teachings of Abraham-Hicks.  It has taken some time for me to figure out how to be an effective coach and a powerful teacher with my new understanding.

First it is important to understand what the basics of my coaching were, pre-Abraham:

1) The client is whole and perfect, and holds all the answers to their questions.  Check.  This one works perfectly and I totally adhere to this principle.

2) The client is always moving between being or doing.  Guide the client between these two states seamlessly and with intention.  Check.   This one also works perfectly, with the exception that I would specify that being is defined as Vibrational Offering and that doing is specified as Inspired Action.

Where I start to dissemble is in the practicalities of coaching.  Typically it starts with a premise – The client has a GOAL to do X.  This goal may be get a new job, find a relationship, create a new business.  There is an assumed end goal that ensures that the client’s work will be neatly tied up in a bow at the end of the finish line.

What I have come to realize is that coaching toward goals without incorporating Law of Attraction principles isn’t very satisfying for me. It is very much thinking and efforting and creating action steps and checklists in an effort to move toward a new reality that probably won’t be that different from past experience.

What I have found more effective is exploring more about “What Is Actually Wanted” from those goals.

  • What are the feelings that will be supported when that goal is achieved?
  • What are the feelings that the client wants to experience and where are they already experiencing those feelings?
  • Is it possible to experience those kinds of feelings in their current situation?

By short cutting to the feeling of the goal versus all the action steps, now there can be some momentum created to achieving the goal.  If a client wants to feel free and empowered in her day-to-day experience, how can she feel that way now? Where in her life is she already free, perhaps decorating her home or landscaping her yard? What does it feel like to make her own choices, to be creative, to be productive?  By noticing where that feeling IS being experienced, she is reminded what it actually feels like and will allow more experiences like that to manifest, based on the Law that Like Attracts Like.

Observing momentum and letting it flow. One of my biggest tasks now as a coach is to provide a perspective on where my client is already experiencing momentum and ensuring that momentum is not neglected or discredited.  I have seen many clients getting a good head of steam in the direction of their dream and then it slows down because they are busy with family or work or other distractions.  Delay and disappointment follow.

And it is my job to remind them that there is no delay and disappointment, it is all serving a greater purpose of fine-tuning, because eventually that desire must be realized and enjoyed.  And all the work in the middle is what will ensure the success, and of course, the true adventure is in the journey anyway.

I suspect that these days, there is more enhancement to my coaching process than an actual need to dismantle my earlier methods of coaching, small tweaks to the process. Having goals is a fine thing, it is just remembering why we want the goal and realizing that we already have the essence in our experience.

Every afternoon, I take a three mile walk around “the Loop”. The path circles a beautiful park, past the town government center across several scenic bridges and through the my little beach town. This has been my habit for the past 18 months, I would guess I have trekked the loop approximately 500 times. This is where many of my images come from; during my excursions around the loop, I look for something beautiful to capture.

This also means my ability to sense change is heightened. I notice if a house is being renovated, when the park got a new fountain, a restaurant updates their building. Today I observed that beyond a tall fence on my path, a house was missing.

I was curious to know more, but the fence was blocking my view and was too tall to see over. But as I kept my brisk pace past the fence, if I kept my vision focused on the space beyond the fence, I could piece together a view through the gaps. Not totally satisfying, but it was enough to confirm that indeed, a house had been knocked down and the empty lot was awaiting a new tenant.

As I continued my walk, a Abraham metaphor emerged in my thoughts.The tall fence blocking my view is my current reality. It is the “what is” that is most obvious, the object that I am usually focused upon, and it is preventing me from seeing the possibilities of what “will be”. By focusing my vision beyond the fence, to the space past the current reality, I was able to glimpse and put together, small slices of possibility. The fence, while still present, faded in importance, as my interest and vision are focused upon another space and time.

This feels like a nice metaphor and tool to think about how visioning a future reality can work. I may not have the clearest of pictures, but if I keep an eye on the glimpses beyond what is, the picture will emerge.


I am very excited to provide a guest blog for Zehra today. I have been watching her fantastic video channel for a year and found her blog in March. This post was 3 months in the making, we had chatted in March and Zehra generously offered me the opportunity to provide a post, and it hs been on the back of my mind, yet inspiration wasn’t flowing. Until it was. That is how it works, let go of the question and let the answer come. You have already asked that question way too many times. (Trust me, you really have!)

Guest Post by Susan Maravetz, The Essential Path

My experience over the past eighteen months with Abraham and the Law of Attraction has been stunningly effective and almost magical in how quickly momentum will pick up on a specific topic I am focused upon. That is how I know that I am a powerful deliberate creator. I am left with no doubt on a very regular basis that “I did that” and I have learned that I do indeed create my own reality. Read More…..


I had a bit of an ah ha yesterday, I was listening to an Abraham-Hicks video and Abraham highlighted the idea that The Law of Attraction is neutral.  That it just is.  And that it is always working, whether you know it exists or not. Just like the Law of Gravity.  It is just how life works.  Drop an apple, the apple falls to the ground.  Give off a vibration, which you are always doing and things that match that vibration come to you.Your current life is the amalgamation of your most frequent and practiced vibrations.

The idea of the game Concentration came into my mind (Source download). The game is simple, a collection of cards are mixed up and placed face down. There are matching pairs, and you have to find the two cards that match. You flip over two cards, and if they match, its a win and you remove the cards from the collection. If not, you flip the cards back over and try again. Over time the game gets easier, as there are less cards and you have seen where many of them are.

OK, now play with me here.  The Universe is the player, playing on your behalf, and already knows where every matching card is.  So the Universe has no problem at all matching up the cards and has unlimited cards to match up. You could say that playing Concentration is the Universe’s job.

Your emotions/vibration are the pictures on the card.  You are vibrating in love, feeling one with Source energy and a matching card with that beautiful image of love is there, waiting for you.  It feels really good.

Or you are vibrating in worry and frustration, lack, loss, scarcity.  Oops, the Universe just gave you a match to that card too. Only it isn’t a mistake, an error or even “meant to be”, it just is. Neutral. Because that is how the Law of Attraction works.

So the Universe’s job is to play Concentration. Your job is to fine tune your vibration so that all your cards are matching exactly what you are wanting.

A friend that I often share Abraham-Hicks videos with asked me for clarification on the concept of “the path of least resistance” and was that simply defined as the easiest pathway to a solution?

After a bit of mulling the question around in my mind, I came to the resolution that the path of least resistance is actually the pathway in which I am (in my belief system) the least resistant. It really comes down to my personal beliefs and my confidence in my expected results.

Here is an example appropriate for the new year: losing weight.

It would probably be easiest to just eat less food or less of certain kinds of food. I could cut out the sugar, eliminate carbs, processed foods and let the weight roll off me. However, to me, this kind of diet equals deprivation and never lasts very long. I might pull off a week at best. However, my path of least resistance/my belief system dictates that I can lose weight quickly by running. So after a couple of weeks of running, the weight magically falls off me. Is it true? Yes, for me. For someone else, perhaps a different result. For another person, losing weight by reducing food intake makes sense, but for me it is never easy and it is definitely not my path of least resistance.

I am enjoying likening it to water running downstream. The water might find the pathway of a rock and become blocked for a bit, but once it finds a new pathway around the rock it flows easily and fluidly.

Where in your life could you focus your attention on maximizing your path of least resistance or perhaps we can rename it your path of most likely success?
