crazy dream this morning.
dreamed I was at the 2013 Martha Beck life coaching summit as an observer (since I’m not certified).
invited though (which was good). but my job was undeniably just to watch others as they were there to complete their final challenge for certification: coach Martha Beck in person.
even though it was Martha, she looked just like Judi (my professor for MBTI training).
each life coach cadet was being video-taped as they coached Martha/Judi.
at first, I’m in the corner of the room, just observing as the cadets shuffle in and out.
finally, one of the cadets calls me over to do some live coaching on me.
I sit down at the formica’d desk. that was really narrow. Martha/Judi is sitting higher than both myself and the cadet attempting to coach me. on the desk is a round chocolate cake and an audio recorder.
which I found odd, as I knew the whole room was being video’d.
while sitting there, I start fiddling with the audio player and end up accidentally running the cable for the audio player through the round gorgeous chocolate cake which is now topped with yellow roses.
the cable is covered in chocolate frosting.
oh sh*t. what do I do now? I gasp internally.
I know Martha/Judi have seen what I have done, but watching me to see what I will do next.
so I move the audio recorder to my lap, out of the camera’s and Martha’s view. I guess.
weak attempt to avoid interfering with the cadet coach’s practice.
once on my lap, I discreetly try to wipe the cable off on my sweater. quite unsuccessfully, but good enough.
and then stealthily return the audio unit to the table.
the woman who was coaching me, concluded that her hunch was that I’m now at a 1.3. much better than the 1.8 with which I had sat down.
huh??? no wonder I’m not ready to be certified! 😉
internally I disagreed, but for Martha’s sake, and the woman’s sake, I nodded my head vigorously.
then I hear voices outside the door, so decide to depart the room and head outside…despite knowing that my behavior would be caught on TV and potentially influence future certification efforts with Martha.
I open the screen door, and outside are three women from my life coach training course! I was so excited – they were excited…and I woke up.
~must deconstruct this dream and figure out what the heck that chocolate cake means!~
