Creator/Owner Mindset: Naming the Glory of You

A few years ago, my coach at the time, Jeff Patterson, created an important distinction for himself to support him in expressing himself and his fullest contribution.  He gave names to himself at the far ends of the spectrum of low expression and contribution and high expression and contribution. 

Needy Man and Miracle Man.

He knew exactly what each meant to him and he kept his focus on living his days as Miracle Man and having compassion for himself when he showed up as Needy Man. 

Jeff was an amazing role model for me.  Being coached by Miracle Man called forth more from me than I knew was within me.  Learning how Jeff worked with Needy Man taught me to love myself more, no matter what.  And yet, in all the time I worked with him, I couldn’t come up with my two distinct names for me.  I knew that my equivalent of Needy Man was Scramblin’ Ann but my Miracle Man equivalent eluded me.

The more I tried to find my glorious name, the more I could feel my mind “searching my brain’s hard drive” rather than receiving it from my heart.  So I let it go and wrote my first book with Jeff’s coaching support.

I coached several clients to name theirs.  I told them about Jeff’s success and disclosed that I had only half my equation, yet I could feel the power of having both names. 

Melancholy Monica and Magnificent Monica. 
(Names of clients have been changed for their privacy.)
Scardy Cat and Lover Girl.
Contracted Shelly and Expansive Shelly.
Barely Betsy and Goddess Elizabeth.
Slave and Queen . . .


Ah, the feeling of experiencing myself
as Radiant Grace . . .

And just a few days ago, out of the blue, I received a gift from my heart: Radiant Grace.  How amazing is that – the name Ann means grace.

Scramblin’ Ann and Radiant Grace.  Oh my goodness, can I feel the difference in my body, my energy and my heart!!!

What about you?  What distinctions bubble up for you?!?

  2. he would, installed the gutters, cleaned up after himself and asked to be paid before he left. DONE ! I was so impressed, I sent him a thank you card and a follow up phone call after our first big rain. I wish ALL contractors where like him…..heaven sent. (He was once a Christian Minister, presiding over a ‘flock’ in a nearby Church.) Amen.

  3. Just installed it today on my motorcycle and was very impressed. I have a Motorola Razr Maxx, which is one of the larger phones on the market(even larger with the waterproof case I have on it). Fits very well and never seemed to slip ever when installed outside of the windshield going 70+mph(did it for testing purposes). Very easy to place and remove the phone even with large gloves on. Even looks cool in my opinion.

  4. Great post. I used to be checking continuously this weblog and I’m impressed! Very useful info particularly the ultimate part I maintain such info a lot. I used to be looking for this certain info for a very long time. Thank you and good luck.

  5. I also REALLY need time alone. My husband works out of town and is gone about 60% of the month. People always say "oh it must be so hard" but it works much better this way! When he retires I'll have to get a job that required me to be gone 60% of the time…at least!

  6. Kristin, Thank you for this fantastic post! It was perfect and definitely not sleep-inducing! Maybe what I like best about it was that nothing you wrote seemed insurmountable to me, and you reminded us what it’s really all about, loving to write, no matter what happens.~Jen

  7. Mary, it’s 4 months since mine settled in as Scramblin’ Ann and Radiant Grace and they are still solid. Just saying, hearing, seeing Radiant Grace makes me happy – and more her!!!

    I can’t wait to here how yours settle in . . .

  8. Oh I love this game! Hmmmm. Harried Mary and Wild Wisdom Walker. That’s my first thought. Might sit with these and see if they settle in.
