You ever go into a situation and it feels like everything is just…wrong?
The vibe is horrible. Fierce competitive energy is in the air.
And, worse, now you need to create with an open heart and mind.
Jaclyn posted this story on the Committed Impulse Facebook page last week – and with her permission she’s letting us share her valuable story with you.
I went to an audition last week.
When I walked into the casting office the energy immediately felt chaotic and bad. Lots of actors in and out. No one looked like they wanted to be there.
The space felt TENSE. Plus, there were 5 other women there dressed for the part exactly like me.
I remembered I had been in that office before years ago and felt the same thing. Then I felt hopeless.
My first instinct was to try to change my energy and my state of being because I’m very sensitive- how could I deliver a “successful” audition with all this heavy energy around?
THEN I remembered Committed Impulse. I decided I can’t and am not going to change anything. I’m going to ACCEPT conditions as they are and go in and do my thang WITH all of that.
If it’s heavy, it’s heavy, it’s all good. Then something happened (without trying).
When I got called in, I felt light and giddy. Ok – cool, I’m just going with it.
The casting director felt lighter with me. We even chit chatted after, when I thought she was rushed.
I got the call today I booked it! THANKS COMMITTED IMPULSE!!
So, if you find yourself wanting to shut down and alter your truth because the environment you’re in is friggin intense…
Say, “I’m Back.”
See what is in front of you.
Feel the sensation in your body.
And let the energy of the truth be your creative fuel!
So, Remember, your job is to create from your truth – not to manipulate yourself into some idea of how you should be.
Now, get to it.
