ASK COLETTE: How to Set A Course In Your Life
Here, Baby Boomer Intuitive Coach Colette Baron-Reid on practical and spiritual ways to set a new course and bring about positive change in your life.
As I set my intentions for my life (career, relationships, money, etc.) I get confused as to how to balance the spiritual “act as if” and “don’t be attached to the result” concepts with the logical side of me that says, “figure out your desired outcome, then work backwards and establish action steps to get there.”
These two approaches seem to be in conflict with one another. How do I combine them (if that’s possible) and make choices and gain momentum when I can’t be attached to the result?

Dear Practically Confused,
Now let’s change the music, by changing your channel!
Practice experiencing the sense of having it all. Allow your body and your mind to feel what it’s like to be living the life you want. Without focusing on acquiring things, what would your life be like? Who would be in it, and who would be out? What would your relationships look like? What would your work day feel like? How would you feel when you first woke up in the morning? Ahhhhh…..
What would you think about when you went to bed each night? Mmmmm….
Feels good, right? The rhythm is soothing and you are flowing effortlessly along.
The desperate feelings of wanting and desiring are gone. They’re replaced with a sense of calm and patience. In this state, you’re better prepared to take positive action rather than rash responses. You can set your course based on maintaining open energy and positive intentions, but without being attached to the outcome. Take the steps, but release the outcome.
In this positive space, you remain receptive, allowing and open to intuitive hits to take action.
If the forward steps you take show you a different path, that’s okay too. Don’t be attached to the “how” so much as to the calmness that comes from living as if.
NOW, what is the Universe likely to reflect back to you?
