All my life I believed in something greater. In searching for the meaning of my existence, I noticed certain trends and patterns in life that were woven in. Only later I understood what I had an inkling of before and the Law of Attraction and Universal principles were revealed.
I realized that I wasn’t the only one searching and that there were many disciplines that attempted to comprehend the Universe as well as our place in it. I explored many spiritual practices diving deeper into certain ones. There are many out there such as Astrology, Numerology, Palmistry, Iridology, Past Life Regression, Face reading, Toe reading, Feng Shui, and a great deal more I haven’t mentioned. All of them pull the curtains back and allow us to witness the grand plan and the beauty of the world we all live in. I believe that all of them are wonderful and useful but something within realized that not one of them is perfect and provides the whole truth.
To that point, I am reminded of a fable of the mirror of truth…. long time ago there was a mirror of truth and then it was broken into millions of pieces and spread across the worlds by the great winds. Every once in a while, someone finds a piece, looks into it and proclaims that they see truth, when in fact they only see a piece of it. And that is how I look at all of aforementioned disciplines – they are not the absolute but rather a part of the larger puzzle. Thus, as much as I followed certain principles I was never fully immersed by them. Which brings us to School of Human Potential and this week with a bit of background.
The idea of the school came to me in 2009 as I was trying to find a way to help modern people become well-rounded individuals. Not until end of 2012 did I put that idea into motion. Of important note is when I say the idea came to me I mean in a manner that some would call “Divine Inspiration” and others refer to as “Guidance” or “Channeling”. I have been blessed to have that channel of communication open since information started pouring out of me in writing poetry as a child. Thus a “channeled state” is something that is natural and I get “ideas” or “knowing” all the time which has helped me in every facet of my life. Therefore, at the end of 2013, I established the domain, FB and Twitter profiles, started on the logos, web design, trademarks and the setup of the business. Everyone I spoke with loved the logo, idea for the company, etc.
My last two successful business ventures were opened with a certain numerological philosophy in mind. I had vetted the name of the enterprise as well as the start date with the people that subscribe to that philosophy because I partially believed in its merits and decided that it wouldn’t hurt. With School of Human Potential I forgot! I was so inspired to bring it to the world that the thought really hadn’t crossed my mind until much later in the process of actually incorporating.
Thus in a hurry to get a consensus opinion I reached out to a person suggested by those I trust who subscribes to a specific Astrology wing who came back with a recommended date. And the next day I reached out to the numerology people to do the same. Upon speaking with the person who helped my last two businesses with the name and timing I was told in very harsh terms that School of Human Potential is a terrible name, would never succeed and the date of incorporation I was planning on (suggested by the trusted expert on Astrology) is just as ill-guided as the name itself. Putting aside the presentation of that information and the tone with which it was presented, I sustained a direct hit. Here is my baby, my divinely inspired idea to help the world that is about to be launched, just received a horrific diagnosis.
I found myself in a state of confused aggression and had to do calming meditation just to raise my vibrations, release the diagnosis and the negativity. I turned to others to see if I was making a mistake and tried to get more overwhelming consensus from third parties of my being right and the numerology being wrong or not applicable. A wonderful psychic friend of mine said I will succeed. My beautiful, supportive and highly analytical wife had me walk through an exercise of how much I believe numerology actually would affect the success of the venture. I decided last night all was going to work out well and went to sleep, only to awake in the same confused state this morning.
“Needing” more help, I attempted to reach out to my psychic friends and ask them for advice. Oddly enough, nobody was readily available (which is a Universal sign that “you are not supposed to ask them”). Furthermore, when I saw my friend and mentor Lisa Williams online and was about to ask her the question, I heard her voice in my head saying “Ask your guides”. I laughed and took that as an indication that I need to meditate. Thus I decided to drive my daughter to her practice, come home and seek the guidance.
While getting dressed and trying to eat my daughter said she has 3 questions for me. Rushing to get her on time to her practice I told her to wait until we get into the car, to which she replied that she would forget the questions…In the car, she asked the first question and when I asked what was that second and the third, she said she forgot and proceeded to tell me that she was right in saying she would forget. That proved to be a wonderful opportunity for me to help my 9 year old with how things work in the Universe. I began with a quote, “If you believe you will succeed – you will, if you believe you will fail – you have.” I asked her what it means and we had a nice conversation during which I explained how the mindset is paramount. Three minutes into my “lecture”, I had a sudden realization that the talk was as much for me as it was for her and it was my guides answering my question. I stopped mid-stream and laughed.
My guides didn’t need for me to sit in meditation to get the answer, they spoke through me in such a gentle way I almost didn’t notice. Once I did, they proceeded to quote me from my own poem (which they helped me write years ago) – “…if it is Love, it will Succeed…” I had a vision of Neo stopping bullets in Matrix and reprogramming the code and had a knowing that there are bigger things at play and a new paradigm is upon us. All internal conflicts vanished and I felt inspired and at peace. Regardless of the numerological balance of the name, I have the power to make it a success because it is something I truly believe in, it was born in love, and it carries the energy of helping people!
