We all want to believe that deep within our souls there is a very special reason we are here, that we have something valuable to contribute to the world, that we have a special purpose, that we are unique somehow. We also have a sense for the kind of life we’d like to live and a desire to find the right kind of work which suits our talents, aspirations, and values.
Yet, for far too many people, those inner promptings and ardent hopes have become detoured by the frustrations and lost opportunities associated with daily living. Many people have given up on what they thought they could be. Millions have settled for ordinariness. Millions more hold onto their dreams but fail to take the necessary steps to make those dreams real.
In this blogcast we invite you to stop majoring in minor things. By that we mean far too many bright, conscientious, talented people get so caught up in material comforts and sink into unfulfilling ego pursuits that they neglect the one thing that will make them healthy, happy, and whole:
getting in sync with their Core Essence, the deeper part of them that is the seat of their higher functioning, their phenomenal abilities, their incredible uniqueness, their realized potential!
Your Core Essence is the Extraordinary You waiting to be released!
Psychologists call this Core Essence your Authentic Self or your True Self. Neuroscientists refer to it as your Deeper Self. Spiritual teachers say it is your Divine Self.
From our experience we have seen that people will not achieve what they want to achieve, be what they want to be, and do what they believe they are put here to do until they get in sync with their Core Essence. Once that “in sync-ness” is accomplished, all of the rest of their lives falls into place.
No matter where you are in life, you want more of the things that you believe will make you happy, healthy, productive, and fulfilled. It doesn’t matter how well you are already doing, or aren’t; how prosperous you already are, or not; how professionally fulfilled you are, or not; how financially stable you are, or aren’t – you have the choice of making the all important connection by getting in sync with the Extraordinary You (your Core Essence).
Making that choice is the difference between your personal and professional success or feeling that you’ve missed the boat. It’s the difference between feeling fulfilled and wondering if you’ll ever achieve anything worthwhile. It’s the difference between the current you and the you you’d like to be.
“Know thyself” is an ancient Greek aphorism that was inscribed in the forecourt of the Temple of Apollo at Delphi. It has been used throughout history as an injunction for all of us to take getting to know our Core Self seriously.
Your Core Essence (the Extraordinary You, your Core Self) is the foundation of your being. It is the wise you; the transcendent you; the you that has all of the answers; the you that has the strength to lift a car off a loved one; the you that can memorize a series of numbers in their exact order; the you that can survive stage four cancer and go on to live a healthy, happy life; the you that can break cinder blocks with your bare hand; the you that can surmount incredible odds to achieve your dreams; the you that can understand the deepest esoteric teachings.
One thing we know for sure – every circumstance invites you to be who you are. Every situation demands your true colors. Each challenge you face requires you to think, choose, and act from the truth of who you really are.
We can categorically tell you from our personal experience and from a thorough investigation of the last fifty years of human potential research that when your “ordinary self” (the everyday you) gets in sync with your Core Essence (the Extraordinary You) you can meet any human challenge with grace and poise. You can achieve things you thought were impossible. You can most assuredly find the happiness, joy, prosperity, and sense of inner peace you seek.
Your choice, of course, is whether you want to get in sync with the wise, brilliant, fantabulous you or sink into the illusions spun by an unenlightened, materialistic, frightened ego.
How Can You Sync Instead of Sink?
1. Prepare yourself for synchronicity to happen. Going to Headquarters where you strengthen your connection is so important to your receptivity to your inner guidance. It is a chance to align yourself with Truth, and remain tranquil in the midst of whatever the world of outer appearance wants to throw at you. Time in the Silence really is non-negotiable!
2. Recognize your Intuition … and Listen to it! Once we are in tune, we get all kinds of intuitive guidance, leading us to synchronize with life! We just need to pay attention!
3. Have the guts to act on it! It’s one thing to hear our intuition … it’s quite another to act on it! Lots of us suffer from paralysis of analysis! We hear that intuitive guidance, and then we try to second guess it! Or argue with it! Or try to make sense of it! We encourage you to go for it! Follow that urging, and see what happens.
As you continue to strengthen your Divine connection to your Core Essence, you will experience the absolute joy of being able to SYNC instead of SINK, as you walk the spiritual path on practical feet!
