Practice Till It Doesn't Feel Like Practice
If your childhood piano lessons were anything like mine, one of the things you learned was how to keep at a new song that you totally suck at.
I mean, no one would even recognize what you’re trying to play that first week or two.
But you keep practicing.
And pretty soon there’s a verse or two that sounds sorta right. Like you can almost tell what this song wants to be.
And when you keep at it, eventually it starts to sound like when your instructor plays it. (Well, almost.)
If you keep at it even more, it becomes an addition to your repertoire. You can play it without sheet music. At the drop of a hat. With gusto!
Because now you know this song.
But it all started with that being willing to suck at it and get it mostly wrong in the beginning.
You know what?
Vibration management sometimes feels like the same process to me.
Because when we want to create something new – whether it’s a casino win, new love interest, dream job, perfect clients, nicer boss, whatever – it all begins with being willing to learn the vibration of that desire.
(That’s how we manifest what we want – by learning the frequency of it.)
And in the beginning, we probably don’t know that vibe very well.
(Otherwise we’d already have it!)
That willingness to suck at it until we’ve mastered it – that’s what consciously creating our next manifestation can seem like sometimes.
At The Money Aligner in GVU this year I’ve been working on my money vibe along with a couple hundred other conscious creators.
For a while, practicing the “big money” vibration felt just like that … practice.
Until it started to feel … mm, sort of legit. More normal. Kind of real. And obvious.
Not like something I was reaching for, but something that lives within me now.
It’s evolved from something I was trying to adopt into something that I owned.
Just like that musical piece in the beginning. It’s stiff and awkward and unrecognizable at first.
But when you put the time in on it, it becomes more fluid and natural. It becomes part of you. You don’t even have to try any more. You could play it with your eyes closed.
That’s what I’m inviting you to do with your vibration management process.
To stick with practicing what you want until it doesn’t feel like practice any more. Until it feels like something you own; something that lives inside of you.
That’s how we acclimate what isn’t real yet. Which is how it becomes real.
By being willing to put the time in on it, the same way we put the time in on anything that matters (marriage, kids, work, health), pretty soon it starts to feel normal.
Like it isn’t such a fantasy any more. It starts to feel more “of course” and more expected.
Because you’re conditioning yourself to the experience of it.
That’s what this conscious creation game is all about.
So here’s to practicing until it doesn’t feel like practice any more.
