Do you want to know what the C in the M.A.G.I.C.A.L method stands for?
According to the Dictionary Consultation is
the action or process of formally consulting or discussing.
Similar words to Consultation are
a meeting with an expert or professional, such as a medical doctor, in order to seek advice.
According to the Dictionary
“it’s always a good idea to have a consultation with a specialist who can give you more details and more insights”
Consultation by the way does not have to be with a specialist.
In the M.A.G.I.C.A.L method that I am teaching you to attain peace and balance I suggest firstly to consult a trusted family member or friend when you are struggling.
I have found in my life this always had helped me to navigate through difficulties in my life.
Of course if the matter is personal and falls outside the expertise of a friend or family member or you don’t feel you can share with a family member or friend then I would suggest finding a Professional or Specialist that can help.
A person outside your circle.
What I will say is that when you do this you use discernment, take your time, follow that person, ask to see recommendations, read Reviews when hiring a Professional, an Expert, a Consultant, a Therapist or a Coach.
Of course you are probably saying that I would say to consult because I am a Consultant selling my Consulting Services.
But I want you to really hear this before Therapy was a Profession and an Industry from ancient times, humans have consulted with each other.
And I did suggest you consult with a friend or family member first
Especially when you are disturbed by what you are inspired to do, say or share.
No human being is an island and to grow as a human being consultation is a necessary skill to build a family and a society and a community.
Do you agree?
Consultation is the cornerstone of democracy and when you consult with another as a peer to a peer this is even more powerful.
This usually happens when you consult a family member or a friend.
Of course there are power dynamics when you consult with a specialist like a doctor or teacher or coach or consultant.
However without consultation you cannot attain peace and balance.
You are living a very isolated and lonely life and that is not a peaceful or balanced way of living
Consultation also provides checks and balances that you are not inspired to go on a journey that can lead you to harm.
Inspiration can lead you down rabbit holes and lead you to be vulnerable.
Consultation also shows you your blind spots that you cannot see by yourself
To ask for help is not easy
That has been my experience
Despite being in the helping Profession since the 1990s as a Social worker, I only asked for help when I was in a crisis.
They say doctors make the worst parents.
And as a High Achiever we are also the worst because we are SO resilient in crisis.
But whether it is a trusted family member or a trusted friend or a Specialist that you consult, I would urge you to consult someone after you read this article and STOP trying to struggle with whatever you are struggling with on your own.
This is what I discovered when I started consulting others, letting others into my life.
I realized that being vulnerable was not a weakness it is actually a strength
I felt strengthened by the comfort I got from the various consultations that I had.
I was able to process the advice, suggestions and practical tips I received in a manner that got me faster results then when I tried to figure it by myself
I saved a lot of time.
In some instances I saved a lot of money
As I have become more discerning in who I consult I noticed those who have your best interests at heart who are not just out to get your money or get you,give you advice by suggesting that you do this or that, they do not tell you or impose that advice or instruction onto you.
Be very wary of those that say to you “Do it my way or it is the Highway.’
An experienced consultant, coach, doctor, healer, therapist, counselor would not do that.
Remember the Online Space is unregulated
In the Offline space if any one did that they would not be allowed to practice.
So as I said I before be DISCERNING when you consult with a Professional and even a family member or friend.
So the C in my M.A.G.I.C.A.L method stands for Consultation
For me when I look back at my life I know whenever I have consulted with a family member or those times when I could not trust any and turned to a friend instead and those times I knew I needed someone that was outside my personal circle and I hired a therapist or sought help from a doctor, has most of the time resulted in peace and balance in my life.
I hope that consultation results in peace and balance for you too.
I sincerely do because even though many of us chase the Material it is PEACE and BALANCE that ultimately that we are looking for.
I hope you found this article useful
If you have, I would love to know what exactly you did and why?
Only then you can attain the peace you are looking for.
