Serve Conscious

Service Superpower Development | Power Mimicry | Guided Exercise

This superpower will...

  • Allow you to resonate with and skillfully communicate with others.
  • Change your habits in how you respond to people when they are "being difficult", making you less reactive and more patient and understanding
  • Develop emotional intelligence, resilience to challenges, compassion, and understanding.
  • Develop inner happiness - things like compassion inspire surprisingly levels of happiness in the people practicing it.

Stage 1: Setup

  1. Find a quiet place to sit.
  2. Close your eyes (or just unfix them from focusing on anything).
  3. Just try and move your attention from your thoughts to your body breathing.
  4. See if you can slow and deepen your breathing.
  5. Select the your target (you'll be visualizing them). There are options:
  • Someone you’re currently struggling with (colleague or customer).
  • Someone that really bothered you (colleague or customer).
  • Everyone you might serve today (as a big crowd of people).
  • Everyone you ever served (as a crowd).

Stage 2: Mimicry

Repeat these phrases to yourself, keep your object in mind:

  1. This person/people needs to feel safe and healthy, just like me.
  2. They need to feel free, just like me.
  3. They need love and belonging, just like me.
  4. They need to feel joy - just like me.
  5. They need honesty and integrity - just like me.
  6. They need life to make sense - just like me.
  7. They need to feel like they matter - just like me.
  8. They need peace and relief from struggle - just like me.

  • Throughout, also keep your awareness in your body and notice the feelings that the practice brings up.
  • This sequence can be repeated as much as is necessary.
  • Switch objects as necessary.

Stage 3: Kindness Power

Keeping your object in mind, send them good will in the form of phrases like the following:

  1. May you be happy.
  2. May you be healthy.
  3. May you have what you need.
  4. May you be free of struggle and pain.

  • Repeat as often as you have time for.
  • Try and put as much feeling and intention of care and goodwill behind the phrases.
  • Note when the phrases get empty and repetitive - return to the feeling of care.
  • If you find that you’re unable to care or that your mind is arguing against behind kind to your object(s), then this is totally normal and a sign of successful practice.
  • Keep doing it.

Important: remember to do this practice on yourself as well.
