Warning: We are gonna get pretty out there with this one but I promise to make it practical and applicable for ya.
Recently I had a conversation with a client where she said to me that she loved a book I recommended to her because it has taught her certain things that she didn’t know. I found the comment interesting and even more than that, I found my response even more fascinating.
I found myself saying to her that the book had nothing new to say. That in fact, the information in the book was just one person’s interpretation of knowledge that she already had inside of her but simply had not accessed or more accurately, tuned into.
We have an interesting notion about learning and knowledge in general. We think that there are teachers, books, gurus, seers that know better or more than we do.
Now if you read my post a couple of weeks ago you know that I don’t actually buy into the fact that someone knows better than you. The moment you believe that you have now somehow put that person in a league above yourself.
This is not to say that there are not teachers or spiritual guides that are not more tuned in than we are, but they don’t actually know anything that we don’t. They are simply accessing that knowledge in ways we may not have yet.
Let me simplify. I will come at this from both a spiritual perspective and a quantum physics one. Honestly, they both say the same thing anyway so it doesn’t really matter whether you prefer science or spiritually. All roads lead to the same path they say.
If from a spiritual perspective we are all one, (“There is only one of us here” -Marianne Williamson from A Course in Miracles) and we are all connected to the collective consciousness, then our minds are all interconnected with the source of all information and there truly is nothing we don’t already know. It is just a matter of xwhether we have plugged in and downloaded it or not.
Now, to avoid sounding too out there, plugging in and downloading can look like reading a book, or taking a course, or listening to someone. That said, however, the information in and of itself is not new. It has always been there. We have always known it. We simply forgot.
This is the same thing that is said in Conversations with God by Neil Donald Walsh.
And if you want to look at it from a physics perspective, if you consider quantum entanglement and the quantum field which in very simple terms simply state that our energy fields are all inextricably connected, then this idea still holds true. (If you are like, “quantum what?”, may I humbly refer you to The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbott.
Now, why would I go to such great lengths to write an article about this? Because very simply, this is about reclaiming your power, and coming to terms with the fact (and the NLP presupposition or convenient assumptions) that everything you need and I mean EVERYTHING you need to achieve your desired outcomes or goals or dreams is right there inside of you. The question is, are you tapping in? Are you tuning in? Are you plugging into your own amazing genius? Or are you running around thinking that everyone knows better than you and the innate wisdom you have inside?
I am a big believer in expanding our knowledge and continuing to access more and more of ourselves through training and development. I am a teacher for heaven’s sake. And the important thing to keep in mind and something that I am very present to as a teacher is that neither I nor anyone else actually knows more about anything then you do. They have just tapped into that knowledge and they are reminding you of what you already know. That, by the way, is why when you really learn something, you say to yourself “well that make sense” because on some level you are just remembering something that was already there.
Ok, so what do you do with this? Own your power. Start reclaiming who and what you really are. You are a human expression of the divine collective consciousness. Or you can call it source. Or you can call it God or you can call it whatever you want. You are far beyond anything you can conceive about yourself consciously.
So, next time you find yourself in a state of hero worship or putting a teacher or guru up on a pedestal, remember who you are and that nothing and no one is above you. Just like you are above nothing or anyone else.
You dear one are such a unique expression of the universal light that is the source of all we know. Go out there and shine as bright as you possibly can because you have enough. You know enough. You ARE enough.
From my loving and reminded heart to all of yours…
