The motivational speaker gives you the “a-ha” you’ve been craving for years. Relief!
The guru hands you the Answer. Om Shanti!
You find the solution in a book (probably one of my books). BREAKTHROUGH!
Your breakthroughs have more to do with your own power than that of the expert or the authority.
Outside sources can be Soul resources—but not because THEY know something that you don’t. They are merely showing you your own wisdom.
It’s all about resonance. Teachers (in all forms) hold up a mirror for you in just the right Light, and you catch your reflection in it. Your Truth collides with theirs.
This means you get to reframe your learning:
So instead of saying, “He gave me the answer.”
Say: “He said something that I knew was true.”
“She’s so wise.”
Becomes: “Her wisdom really resonated with me.”
“They’re the experts on XYZ.”
To: “This really fits with my own strengths.”
This way, you fully respect your teachers. Deep bow. And you respect your innate wisdom. Which is always unfolding. You had the ears to hear it. You showed up at the right time. You are attuned.
And that’s some white hot truth.
