Atma Namaste Everyone!
Today’s Quote: “Do not look at the words, look at the essence behind the words.” GMCKS
This is one of those ‘tricky’ quotes by GMCKS that I had to do some research on. In all of GMCKS’ books, meditation CD recordings, and healing protocols he is very exacting in his wording. So I looked up the word, ‘essence.’
Merriam-Webster defines es-sence as:
– the basic nature of a thing : the quality or qualities that make a thing what it is
– the most significant element, quality, or aspect of a thing or person
Hmm….the basic nature of a thing eh?
So how can we apply this to our daily dealings with people and their words?
As yourself the question, “What is this person really saying to me?”
The actual words are just a small part of communication. You have inflection, tempo, volume, context, body language, even which gender is communicating and which gender is receiving. It is the ‘behind’ the words you are looking for.
There is a style of communication called subcommunication and is most often used by women, whereas men use direct communication. There are evolutionary biological reasons as to why men and women communicate in these styles but in general, a woman implies and suggests and a man states and requests.
A famous example being, “Does this dress make me look fat?”
The subcommunication is, “Do you find me attractive?”
If one were to take it several layers deeper and get to the essence of the words, it could like like:
“Do you find me lovable?” to deeper
“Do I find myself lovable?” to deeper
“Am I lovable.” to deeper
The essence or basic nature of humans is ‘I AM.’
The essence of life coaching is to help the client recognize this ultimate truth “I Am That, That I Am” and to dis-identify with falsehoods such as “I AM afraid. I AM confused. I AM lost. I AM angry. I AM unlovable. I AM a failure.”
When client’s come for Pranic Healing its the process of removing non-truth which leaves only truth, the I AM, because that is our essential nature. A migraine headache, a spousal argument, chronic fatigue, or work disharmony are all symptoms, surface level ‘stories’ getting in the way of the essence or heart of the matter, the I AM.
Communicating, coaching and healing at the level of the essence gives us access to profound and permanent transformation, connection and understanding of ourselves, others and the nature of reality.
So, what was the essence of today’s newsletter?
1. Two and 1/2 months ago I had the idea to bring Jeffery Combs, the Millionaire Maker, to Denver. I asked him, “Jeffery, what would it take to bring you to speak in Denver?” He said, “Put 20 people in a room and I’ll be there.” After talking to the right people and showing the immense value Jeffery can bring to Denver, we have over 65 people registered for his event! The room holds a total of 80 people, so for those of you who thought you might be out of luck…fear not. Its Saturday, October 18th in DTC from 9:00am to 4:00pm. Click here for details or to register.
