^We're asked to find the "Thevenin's equivalent circuit for the source"

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm a bit unsure how to start this problem. What i initially thought was that i'd combine all my impedances in parallel to the point where it's them combined plus the 10ohm resistor in series, then use the voltage divider..however the part of the circuit labeled as 'load', well am i suposed to find the voltage across the inductor and resistor in series (9.6+j2ohms), as in, is that where my Voc is? And thus the 10ohm resistor is useless in calculating the Thevenin voltage (since the current entering it would be zero)?

Is that how i should approach it? Consider Voc to be where the resistor and inductor are? I don't think i explained myself properly, but this is what i mean:

Just that in other (similar) problems i've done, they either have just the open circuit nodes a and b (with the rest of the circuit being to the left) or they have an arbitrary load impedance (ZL) connected to a and b nodes (with no value). So am i to find the open circuit voltage between terminals a and b (including the resistor and inductor in series)?
