You are already enlightened
You and I likely have never spoken, so I haven’t had an opportunity to tell you that you are already enlightened.
You are on track—no matter what. And there are forces that support you throughout your life—no matter what.
This book will describe those forces and guide you to ways you can interact with them to harness your creative power.
Take a new perspective on enlightenment
Enlightenment is the moment-to-moment process of saying “yes” to the aliveness inside you. As I have worked with more and more clients, showing them their soul’s perspective on their lives, I have seen that enlightenment is our essence. We are all already enlightened. Through coaching, Soul perspective readings, and channeling, I’ve watched my clients turn on the light that is already there, waiting to shine. I want you to do the same.
Your life will change when you take the perspective that you are here to give your soul the adventure of your life. You will gain a sense of purpose that is independent of the world around you.
Just like a parent has the responsibility to raise a child, you bear the responsibility for your soul’s experience. When you realize and accept this responsibility, you show up for your own life every day, explore your creativity, and contribute to your personal and the global ecosystem.
Seven progressive lessons
Lesson 1 - You Are Already Enlightened
In Lesson 1, you will learn you are the first force of your own enlightenment. Your enlightenment started the moment you made self-loving choices to help or develop yourself. Self-loving choices are powerful because they connect you with your soul. Your soul loves you; you love you. In this lesson, you will learn that you and your soul have something in common—your well-being and happiness. Realizing this bond, you initiate your own enlightenment.
The power in Lesson 1 lies in acknowledging your own efforts and seeing how much you have enlightened yourself so far. Recognizing your own good in this way is the foundation for your path toward enlightenment.
Lesson 2 - Your Soul's Love Affair with You
In Lesson 2, you will connect with the force that wants you to be here. Your soul and spirit created you on purpose! Your soul picked every aspect of you—not only your good, great, and fantastic traits, but also the ones you may think are not so good. Your soul loves all parts of you. You are the object of its desire. By seeing yourself and your experiences as your soul does, you invite it closer to you, and eventually you embody it. You learn to show it the adventure of your life.
The power in Lesson 2 lies in acknowledging the force that wants you to be here: your soul. You create an eternal friend for the rest of your life and you realize that you are always loved and never alone. You sense the support you need to take on the challenges of life and create beauty through your personal gifts.
Lesson 3 - Your Soul's Love Affair with the Earth
In Lesson 3, you meet your other mother: Mother Earth. When you die, perhaps you will see a trailer flash before your eyes that reads, “This has been The Movie of You, made possible by generous donations from Mother Earth.” You cannot exist without the earth. The earth co-creates you, together with your soul. She anchors the energy of your soul into you.
You culminate your enlightenment when you live in alignment with the ecosystem of planet earth. As you awaken to your soul and creativity, you sense a deep need to exist and create as part of nature and the ecosystem. Fully loving the earth and the physical realm completes your enlightenment.
The power in Lesson 3 lies in recovering and healing your relationship with your life as a vulnerable human on planet earth. You face the dichotomy of loving the earth while fearing loss. You gain a sense of peace in the conflict of life and death that confronts us daily.
Lesson 4 - Living Your Soul's Creative Magic
In Lesson 4 you experiment with the creative power within you—your magic. Your magic is an extension of the force that created you. You create in the same way that All-That-Is and your soul create. Your intention directs your attention, and your attention wields your creative magic, making it your most valuable asset.
The power in Lesson 4 is that you acknowledge your creative magic. Every day when you wake up, you create. You cannot not create. The one thing I want to tell my clients when they feel they have to back down from their dreams is: “You are so powerful!” This lesson helps you see your own power, categorize it, and apply it. Your creativity comes into focus, shifting from cloudy to clear.
Lesson 5 - Your Enlightenment Architecture
In Lesson 5, I will show you enlightenment as sourced from a place that I call your enlightenment architecture. You will learn to step into it and sense its presence in you. You will find out about the “power through” quality of enlightenment and how to separate from “powers over” you that do not serve you. You will shine when you allow the sensation of aliveness to flow through your enlightenment architecture and light you up.
The power in Lesson 5 lies in acknowledging the web of supporting forces that surround you. You are a facility of light: a power plant. Aliveness fuels you. This lesson helps you to increase your daily vitality to wield your creative magic with joy.
Lesson 6 -Anchoring in Your Enlightenment Architecture
In Lesson 6, you will break out paper and pens to practice your connection to your soul and your enlightenment architecture. You will find out how to balance enlightenment and vulnerability. To strengthen the power flowing through you, you will revisit both your subtle and physical births.
The power in Lesson 6 lies in the practical application of your creative magic to conjure the sensation of your soul and your enlightenment. You will work with exercises that give you the felt sense of creative magic, aliveness, and enlightenment. You will know what your light feels like as a sensation in your being..
Lesson 7 -The Road Ahead
In Lesson 7, you will practice shifting away from forces that have power over you to allow the power of aliveness to flow through you. You will learn to connect with something bigger in your everyday life. You will glimpse your enlightened life’s “new duality.”
The power in Lesson 7 lies in understanding the bigger picture for the path ahead. You will know how to shape your self-help, self-development, and spiritual practices in a way that shows your soul the adventure of your life and moves you towards personal and collective enlightenment.
My greatest wish for you
My intention is to show you how to use the force that wants you to be here to help you shine your light brighter and more easily than ever before. My greatest wish for you is that you learn to simplify your spiritual path to its essence, and in turn experience greater freedom and creativity. I also want to show you that you need nothing more than that with which you came into this world—no gurus, no religion, no other outside forces or tools—to experience yourself as a whole, complete, and powerful person who acts in connection with your soul.
Through the lessons and practices in this book, you will learn to work with the same creative force that brought you to life to find inner freedom. You will receive the blueprint for your enlightenment architecture, and will learn how to use it to become the vibrant being you came here to be.
