In my meditation today, the image of a channel became vividly present. But it wasn’t a channel in a modern sense like a TV channel or social media channel. Instead, the channel that I experienced is an ancient one created by the flow of water that over time can create a great canyon.
Water is a reflection of spiritual energy and wisdom. Each relies upon a willing channel through which to journey. Wisdom exists in infinite quantities and has been available from the beginning of our universe as people have drawn from it and added back into it. Some things quite simply haven’t found an open and available channel to flow through and are just waiting for that willing individual to connect through. I have come to realize that the momentary ‘flashes of brilliance’ that come to me occasionally, are not at all the product of some great thinking on my part and I now “own”. Instead they come to me at points when I’ve been an open receptacle, willing to let energy move through me.
For example, I thought more deeply about why people hire me as a spiritual guide. Is it because of my intelligence and experience? I don’t think so as there are many people with equal or greater quantities of both. Instead, my most successful experiences have been when I’ve been a catalyst to release energy and thought and helped remove obstacles enabling frictionless connections. In those instances, I am an open channel and from there allow others to add their own flow of energy to create an even greater and more powerful current capable of carving an even deeper channel. There are far too many instances for me to recall when the words I shared with others came from a source I cannot identify and did not exist in any prepared remarks or material I had. I am both humbled and astonished when this happens and more than anything else grateful for the privilege of having been the simple outlet.
It is a humbling experience to realize that our lives are meant to be channels through which others can be enriched. When you think of what you know in this context, how could you ever believe that you are somehow better or more gifted than someone else. The key to “success” then is in how open and available you are to the flow of wisdom and energy available to everyone and then most importantly, how willing you are to reflect it back, share it, and build upon it. There is no room for arrogance or self-serving pride when you offer yourself as a humble channel. So, to use a modern term, tune in and once you have, be selfless and allow what flows through you to carve itself into an incredible gift that is as timeless and magnificent as the great canyons on our planet.
I believe in the transformative power of human connection to elevate joy, restore balance, and support inner healing as you seek your highest purpose. My purpose in life is to be a guide, to share the wisdom of the Universe I’ve been gifted with, and to see others succeed. Nothing brings me greater joy than to see others step into their purpose in a vibrant and highly energetic way.
