What Erika’s Ski Lift Experience Taught Her About Approachability

This entry applies just as much to girls as to guys.

This was a wild lesson for me. I’m a delicate little girl who easily gets wind burn, so vanity be damned, when I ski (which is all winter long), I cover from head to toe. I wear a helmet, goggles, and face mask. You cannot see one teeny bit of skin. All you can tell about me is that I’m female and little (5’5″ 117 pounds).

Two and a half years ago, before I started all this spiritual stuff, I would ride the ski lift and almost nobody ever talked to me. It was like I was invisible. Once I started doing this spiritual stuff and self-improvement, all of a sudden people started talking to me. By last winter, it was the rare lift where the other people on the chair didn’t start spontaneously talking to me. This obviously had nothing to do with the way I look because NO ONE COULD SEE ME. Nor was it my body language, cuz there’s only so many ways you can sit on a ski lift chair without falling to your death. ;-)

We are not bodies. We are walking energy, people. Approachability shows up in body language, it shows up in how you talk, it shows up in how often you smile at people and make eye contact … but fundamentally it is a VIBE. It is non-verbal. It is a vibe that happens when you clear out your negative emotions and judgments and become the loving Presence that naturally exists underneath all that.

  1. Yeah, I’ve been noticing this too lately.

    The first time I noticed this was when I was getting into the community, and working on things like state and vibe etc. I noticed that people would be DRAWN to me, I’d walk into a room and people would stare, girls would go out of their way to approach me.

    Now that I’m working on oneness, I’ve noticed something else… My vibe is toned down now, purposefully, I don’t want to impose my reality on others I just want to be secure in it. People won’t go out of their way to talk to me… they don’t even seem to notice when they start up a conversation. It just happens.

  2. Found your blog through Tyler Durdens, really like it.
