If you’ve read Part 1 and Part 2 of this series, you know that you are already part of a multidimensional community that is waiting to support your success as an actor in surprising new ways. Today, I’ll share a simple formula that will help you make that happen faster.
Just to review: With a team, you are limited as to who and what can bring you success. With your Fullistic®️ community, your resources are endless and things you never thought were possible become so. This is because you stop searching and waiting, subsisting in a state of lack, want, frustration or annoyance. Instead, you shift into knowing and having, thriving in a state of satisfaction, acknowledgement, flow and peace. You’re giving and receiving moment to moment, and it feels great not just to you, but to those around you.
Ready to engage? Try the ACT formula:
A: Accept the person or situation in which you find yourself (including being stuck in traffic!) as perfect for you in this time and space.
C: Connect Notice every single thing you can about this moment. Where are you? Who is there with you? What is (or isn’t) happening? What do you see, hear, smell? If this moment were a flavor, what is it? What is your sense of touch bringing you? Then go higher, letting your audient abilities bring you more information. Do you hear a song in your head? On the radio? On your device? Are you picking up on someone else’s conversation? Even if you can’t hear what they’re saying, what mood are they projecting? Are you receiving visual images? Do you have a clear intuitive knowing that you should or should not act upon? Do you sense the aroma of something that reminds you of someone or something?
Consciously connecting helps you receive the informational gifts you need to move forward.
T: Trust Once you’ve taken in all you can, just let go. Just distract yourself. You can open the copy of Feathers that you keep in your backpack and simply read one of the 50-second essays. You can sing or hum a few bars of your favorite song. You can snap your fingers, touch a tattoo, or simply say, “Done!”
The point is: Just let go. Be done. Doing so opens a huge energy portal that allows whatever’s been waiting for you to show up, because you’ve acknowledged its signs and let go of your barriers to receiving it. So don’t be surprised if, in the next 24-48 hours, something wonderful shows up that supports your acting career.
Pay Attention to the Cues You Start Receiving
Because ACTing takes you out of your head, you won’t be listening to its predominantly negative voice. Instead, you’ll start receiving information that will match your intention, so pay close attention to as many details as you can.
The people and situations you encounter will always be a match to you energetically. One question you can ask yourself is, “What would I have to believe for this to be true?” For instance, if you are stuck in traffic, you can ask yourself, “where else do I feel stuck?” Once you have your answer, simply use your imagination to release the perception of what you believe has been holding you back. As an actor, you can probably have a lot of fun with this—just improv a clever way to get rid of it, and imagine the scene to a satisfying conclusion.
You can also amplify positive energy with this technique. If you just completed a great audition, simply acknowledge your own happiness and say aloud, “This feels great!”
When you speak, you not only get a chance to hear your own thoughts; you also intensify what you’re broadcasting onto the field of potential. Doing this plants more energetic seeds for your future happiness and well-being.
Remember to stay aware of the conscious part of your Fullistic community as you do this. If you get an intuitive hit to go somewhere or call someone, go or call and deliver/receive joy there. Watch for signs that literally or figuratively direct you, and follow them.
Also remember that there is no such thing as “nothing” happening when you do this. Every connection just amplifies and accelerates the signals in your personal Fullistic community. You are planting seeds of life, love and radiance.
Open to Giving AND Receiving
And remember: this is not just about what you give. You also have to receive. You will feel empty, resentful, fearful or frustrated if you never take in the love, kindness, suggestions and care that others offer you, which energetically only creates more of the conditions you don’t want.
As you connect Fullistically, several things start to happen:
—You’ll feel better physically. You’ll likely feel more alert, alive and present.
—You’ll feel less needy, and a lot richer. You’ll know, without question, that you have something valuable to share, and because you’re also open to receiving, you’ll never exhaust your supply.
—You’ll feel more present, conscious and likely a lot more relaxed. Others can feel this, and you may find the people just enjoy talking to you or being around you.
And that’s when the fun begins. Parts start showing up, or you start winning them. You find yourself helping others make connections with no thought at all of what you’re going to get out of it. Someone you met a year ago contacts you and introduces you to a Director they know who has a part that’s perfect for you. Your consultant starts praising your efforts. You find the perfect coach in your price range. Even your mother stops asking when you’re going to get a real job.
Remember: Consciously engaging your Fullistic®️ Acting community can literally and figuratively energize your career. Applaud your own efforts to expand your awareness and allow new sources of success into your life, and to become a source of success for others. Cheers to you!
