Think about what you do for a living. Are you a professional, a student, an artist of some sort? Can you remember when you had the thought that brought you to this place? “I want to be a musician.” “I just got the greatest job as a graphic artist.” “Finally I’m an attorney, police person, kindergarten teacher.” This is often accompanied by a sense of expansion and happiness, as though you have reached the top of a mountain, a sense of arrival.

Set a new intention: when you feel good about the other person, share it. This immediately shifts the energy and sets up a breakthrough potential.
And now for some partners working together!
