Remember Who You Are
One of the greatest threats to our sovereignty is the acceptance of the idea that spirituality is somehow disconnected from our day-to-day life. This gets represented as the notion that you do not know better, have no access to unfiltered truths and therefore it is optimal for you to rely on others to better navigate your decisions.
One the other hand, one of the most exciting opportunities for any person to achieve more of the things that they desire is to unify their experience with their definition of the self. This carries the feeling of seeing more of the whole picture and knowing more of who you are. This expansion into a more authentic and sovereign identity is experienced as clarity.
There is no more profoundly rewarding shift in perspective that can be take than moving from the belief that all things are disconnected to the experimental perspective that all things, experiences, thoughts - anything - are by their nature unified, one, and inseparable.
This shift - from a perspective that sees duality to one that see unification with crystal-clear clarity - is the platform upon which all renowned leaders and pioneers stand. It is the basis for a crystalline decision making structure. It is the gateway to infinite intelligence and perpetual joy. And, perhaps most excitingly, it is a perspective that is both practical to take and accessible to achieve.
All of my life I felt different. It wasn’t all good or all bad, it was just different.
I would win awards for how different I was - seasonal MVP in grade school baseball and basketball, mister congeniality in high school, undergraduate student of the year and high hours in college, high achievement awards in graduate school, 30-under-30 and a “Top Person to Know In Business” as a professional in my 20s.
But, I would also be an outsider. An outsider within my own experience.
At times, I desperately tried to fit in, but I never really felt that I did. It may have appeared that way, but I always seemed to put up a block when it came to letting people get really close to my thoughts and emotions. It was nearly always preferential for me to be alone than it was to be around other people.
Despite my entire adult life being in a position of “leadership,” I did not know who I actually was. I knew my name and my story, but there was an itch within me that told me that was not the totality of me, and nothing anyone had ever taught or told me seemed to get scratch it.
I realize now what an incredibly blessing it has been to be within my own energy as an “introvert” for such a long time. It allowed me to develop my inner courage. It gave me the time and space to explore the inner worlds, while I was reflecting mastering in the outer world - academics, business, strategy, “achievement.”
One evening five years ago, it just clicked. I had learned how to meditate, how to be “present.” But this night, I could EXPERIENCE many realizations that I was not able to put into words.
Everything actually IS connected, I thought. It’s not a bumper sticker or a slogan for some self-referencing self-help book. It’s fundamental, it’s real, it’s reality.
From this knowingness, things changed pretty drastically in my abilities and experiences. I saw things differently just like I always had, but now I was able to see why…I was able to see through the illusion while remaining a participant within it. I had become aware of a more expanded me.
I’m 31 years old and can honestly say that I believe that I have remembered why I came here, primarily through the knowingness that I chose to be here. It is to learn, it is to teach, and it is to more fully experience the remembrance of who I am on the most expansive and comprehensive scale (and share about it!).
Here is a link to my LinkedIn page, which profiles my positions in business. What I do now is broadcast ideas that have been helpful to me and my friends. I work one-on-one primarily with working professionals in assisting them gain clarity on their paths. Here are some testimonials of many of those people. This achievement is the outcome, not the input. All change starts and ends within. The reflection is all you see.
I have distilled my learnings, experiences and insights both in the business world and in the metaphysical world to an individualized mentorship program, within which I work with just six people at a time. This is called The Platinum Accelerator.
It is a great honor for me to live the life that I live. I have even more gratitude, though, for the opportunity to assist others in realizing and actualizing their highest-potential self.
