What does it really mean to show up? I’ve been pondering this question as a trainer and facilitator, further questions followed...
Was it one of the following....
• Knowing or Unknowing
• Open heartedness
We are not suggesting any of these is right or wrong including any different answers that come up for you, we all have our own unique thoughts. What we are suggesting is that our stance comes through us without thought unless we are truly stopping and consciously choosing how we want to show up.
A way to start to notice our stance is to pay attention when we next deliver, to tune into ourselves as we go through the next session.
Listen to our inner voice, our gut instinct, to write down what we notice?
When have you facilitated or trained and felt at your most resourced?
Take yourself back to this time, the place, the space.
What do you notice?
What were you doing, saying, thinking or feeling?
Write down what you recall
You will know that you can choose your state, how you want to be and your actions. It’s just that many of us forget this rather useful choice!
Reflect back on when you were most resourced, notice which stances you are drawn too, think about what energy would serve the group you are working with.
Choose to practise choosing your stance and using it for the benefit of the group.
In the forthcoming months we want to invite you to join this conversation about how we SHOW UP, explore what it means for us to start with being vs doing.
Imagine deep diving into our own energy and choosing what works for us versus doing something that we think we have to do (cause that’s what a book said!).
Sign up and SHOW UP and we will keep you in the loop!
