Connect To Your Genius
“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” – Albert Einstein
If you have not felt like a genius yet, it is perhaps you have not paid enough attention to your genius. Let us see what this word actually means. A Latin Dictionary defines it as the superior or divine nature, which is innate in everything, the spiritual part, spirit.
In its principle, it is a cognate of demon. The original Greek word daimon (δαίμων) does not carry the negative connotation. A Greek-English lexicon defines it as the Divine power and the power controlling the destiny of individuals: hence, one’s lot, destiny, or fortune.
It is your guardian angel, or if you prefer your Higher Spirit, Higher Self.
It is your intuition that does not let you sleep. A restless demon. A voice that tells you about your destiny and wants you to express your genius. However, what usually happens is that many people get intimidated. They feel enthusiastic at first, but later feel too much pressure or responsibility and either lack the support or get discouraged. It seems to them as more comfortable to sit back and do not risk to be ridiculed or to have to defend their art, their ideas. Therefore, in order to have a clear conscience and suffer less, it seems better to forget and not even think about it again.
People who forget about their talents become standardized consumers with passive voice. Often, they numb their agility by cheap entertainment and unconsciously silence their genius.
If you did not manage to develop your talents during your childhood as you would wish, and use to compare yourself and think how competitive it is now,
I say, regret rather now than later, and start from now on.
What was your childhood dream? What was keeping you awake?
And how it relates to any accomplished people ever lived that you admire?
If you did not have nearby anyone close to those great masters, how can you get closer to them now?
Every transformation begins from connection to its source.
Finding the desired influence is therefore of a great importance.
STEP 1 – INTRODUCTION
Go out during a clear, and preferably, starry night. You will establish a communication with the cosmos. Observe the sky and the shimmering stars. Realize that your eyes just respond to the energies and your brain transforms them on the screen of your mind. Try to go beyond what is imminently perceivable, and pay attention to what your senses are pointing to. There is an unpronounceable meaning beyond. Hear the silence echoing the sounds of the night.
It is now within you. As above so bellow.
The same what you see out there is also in here, deep inside of you. Pay attention to it.
“The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies were made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of starstuff.” – Carl Sagan, Cosmos.
Breathe freely and continue looking into the space. Think of your ideals and idols, of the people that presented the highest peaks of humanity. They have been breathing the same air as you do.
STEP 2 – PREPARATION, RESEARCH YOUR PLEIAD (7 excellent characters)
Your mission will be to find seven masters that inspire you the most. Think about seven extraordinary people that you would like to learn from and to connect to the source of their creation. Print notes about them and read their biography. See why and what attracts you to them, to their lives and ideals. Let your emotions flow. Find the essence of your masters. Synthesize it in your heart. Watch some films or documentaries about their life, inspirational video about their message, or listen to some music related to them. Find their feelings.
STEP 3 – INITIATION (take you initiation seriously, developing your genius is a lifetime commitment)
Once you know your masters and feel the desired influence you want them to have upon you, get ready for the next stargazing.
As there is an important connection between respiration and inspiration, imagine that you breathe in the same air that has circulated around and through those great people that ever inspired you. Feel the air and feel the breath of the cosmos through your emotions. Breathe freely, express your emotions, and envisage living up to your potential. Your intuition is deepening and showing you the true path.
Meet yourself in the midst of the starry sky.
Meet yourself there with the cosmos.
How can your thoughts not to be pure when you see the splendour and the vastness of the universe?
Immanuel Kant once expressed, “Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing admiration and awe, the more often and steadily we reflect upon them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me.”
Many times, it is important to humble down in order to allow the cosmic energy to flow.
You may say:
How small I am, but how important I can be.
The world does not revolve around me,
but I can become the hero of my personal story.
Experience the second baptism by the fire of your focus and let your emotions flow. You are contributing to the breath of the cosmos by your existence and your expressions. Work with your visualization. Use your intuition, intention, and intensity of emotions. Feel that you are embracing opportunities, accepting limitations, and exploring the possibilities.
You will get original and fresh ideas.
“The universe will reward you for taking risks on its behalf.” – Shakti Gawain
STEP 4 – GO OUT
The best is when these new influences have the qualities of being constant, repeated, and stimulating to associations.
Stimulate your perception, see examples around you and connect through them to the channels of your desired sources. Imagine it like an exercise strengthening the synapses of your brain, where arriving electric impulses are solidifying the highway bridges, which are creating stronger and flowing connections to the sources of information you need.
Surround yourself with those who think and feel alike. Be a part of a special group that can help each other and create situations that improve our lives. Become the bearer and the keeper of the light within yourself. Frequent people with whom you feel good. In this way, you will gradually transform the energy of your place and your circles just by the presence of your renewed self.
In examples and symbols lies the hidden power of giving the motion to your inspiration.
In the coming article I will tell you more about my Personal Pleiad and provide some examples on how I have been working on creating positive influences and transforming them into tangible results.
