XG Insights for Soaring


What an #XtraordinaryGameChanging Day it was, honing in on Super Powers and Hero Traits with a group of limitlessly joyful and keener kidlets! Oh outta the mouths of babes, comes the wisdom of the ages and the enthusiasm to see it through. We have much to learn.

20160115_112644Here are the highlights of what was shared and gleaned. May it take your day and life to new levels of ah-ha, connection and possibility. Let us all get clear on the powers we bring to the world to initiate shift and then have the fidgety n’ feisty drive to make it happen!

Insights from the Phone Booth and the #XG Kids Inside It!

Pretending is the Key to the Bat Mobile!

  • As we grow we can forget that pretending offers us access to one of the greatest #Truths on earth…
That Each and Every Amazing Thing that has ever occurred begins with this ONE THING…


Thinking Leads to Seeing, Seeing Empowers Creation

  • All things that come to be are first thought and seen within the mind. We MUST begin here. Seems simple enough for us adults, BUT how many times do we set a goal and just ‘get busy’. We can skip the stuff that adds the element of “Already Achieved” that drives our subconscious, not to something new, but to something that IS and is just taking time arriving to us.
Visualization Builds the World of Tomorrow
  • The adults version of pretending has a fancy-schmancy name, Visualization… Pretending with a twist – using all 6 senses of sight, sound, smell, touch, taste and good ole intuition, to make a scenario SO vivid that your subconscious cannot tell the difference between what you imagine and what is ‘real’.

Every Hero Needs a Phone Booth, a Bat Cave or a Perch on Top of the World

  • Every Hero needs a place to go to Think, Visualize, Transform, whether Superman in the phone booth, Batman in his super coolio-gadget cave or Spiderman perched on a rooftop above the city. We all need to turn our attention inward, to be still and listen for the insights, to lead anywhere worth going.
  • And so, we took the kids inward to the Phone Booth of their mind, to visualize the Powers they Possess and the colorful Get-Up they will use for soaring.
Heroism IS as Heroism Does 
  • The insights that flow when we are still are never frivolous or designed for our frustration. The seeds of possibility are planted within our hearts to expand our concept of what we are capable of. These gifts may not manifest as we first envision them, but the gems of magnificence are there, if we open ourselves up to the message between the obvious lines.
  • As the kids shared, some spoke of heroism as it has been delivered to them to date… weapons, gadgets, ice or fire-flinging abilities. As we dug deeper, the truth of heroism emerged. It isn’t about our costumes. It is about our intentions and aligning them with the traits that make heroes, just that, Heroes. Why do kids want to freeze the enemy, ward off evil with Ninja moves? To protect themselves and their families. They long to be courageous, kind, bold, to see justice done, to do what is honorable and brave when others take the easy route or run in fear.

Everyone Feels a Surge of Xtraordinary When They Don a Cape

  • So the kiddies drew their logos, their symbols to adorn their garbage-bag capes and shared their Super Power visions and desires and I, as always, am awed by what comes. Here are some of their awe-inspiring gems…
“When I put on this cape, I don’t know what happens, but I feel like … well Like I’m Powerful and Anything is Possible”

“I’m Imagination Girl! Whatever kids can imagine, I can make real. Our stuffed animals can talk and everything is alive and amazing!”

“I’m Super Bridget! If there is a child who can’t hear, I can make them hear.
If they can’t see, I give them their sight back.”

“My Super Power is that I can reach inside the mind of any villain and make them see a better way. They can see how to be good and kind and are changed.”

“I’m Transportation Man! I transport people to happiness, to a place where they remember what it’s like to be really joyful and then they make joy happen for others.”

If you are reading this today, never doubt there is a reason and perhaps, just perhaps that20160115_104953 reason is because it is time you considered your own Heroic nature, your own Super Powers… to see how they relate to what you do and can create in this world.
Find your Phone Booth, Step In – Think, Visualize, Transform how you are today, just today. Before you know it you will have joined the League of XGers and will shift the world for WoW right from where you are!

In celebration of the Cape we create and wear, these precious young ones who show us the way and our ability to embrace and use the gifts offered us to Ignite – Fuel – Matter!
