Quiz – Are You Suffering From “Unsung Song” Syndrome?

(I just got this in my Inbox. Just having fun with answering the TRUE OR FALSE questionnaire. )

“Dear Joy,

Claire here.

The great Maya Angelou famously said: “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you”

In working with over 250,000 women, I’ve come to see first hand that most of us are suffering what I’ve dubbed as “unsung song” syndrome.

If you’re experiencing a discrepancy between the rich possibilities you sense for who you could be as a woman, for your relationships, and for your creative contribution to the world, versus the reality of your daily life, it might be because you haven’t yet activated your Feminine Power.

And because we’re committed to supporting as many women as possible to awaken their Feminine Power, Katherine and I have decided to host our acclaimed seminar again tomorrow.Join Us For The Three Keys to Feminine Power, Thursday, July 31st at 5pm Pacific / 8pm Eastern

If you’re curious whether you, too, are experiencing “unsung song” syndrome, we’ve created a quiz for you.

Simply answer “True” or “False” to the following statements:

1. You feel somewhat anxious or depressed in spite of being a conscious, committed and caring person who has worked on herself for many years.
(FALSE. Never been happier!)

2. You find yourself over-giving and over-doing, feeling frequently depleted by the myriad demands upon you, despite your best efforts to create a balanced life.
(FALSE. Doing life has never been easier.)

3. You long for deeper, more supportive connections with others even though you’ve spent many years of working to better your relationships.
(FALSE. I’m connecting with God all the time. What could be deeper than that?)

4. You yearn for an intimate partner (or more intimacy with your current partner) who matches your passion for life and is your equal in every way—someone who shares your values and vision to create a better world.
(FALSE. Isn’t “yearning” the same as “wanting” which is what the universe will in turn return? Nope. No yearning. Just thanking.)

5. You feel alone and under-supported to bring forth the fullness of the contribution you know you have to make, in spite of having good friends in your life.
(FALSE. I am never alone, remember? And anyone else for that matter.)

6. You feel pulled to express your gifts and talents in ways that will make a difference, but have no idea how to realize your deeper potentials.
(FALSE. Nope. No pulling. Coz I’m already expressing every day, every hour, every second. To me, it’s called LIVING.)

7. You feel called to begin a new project or career that’s about service and contribution, but don’t know exactly what it might look like or how to support yourself financially in the meantime.
(FALSE. I’m allergic to anything that has the word “financial” in it.)

8. You are concerned about the state of our world, yet also feel overwhelmed, confused and powerless to bring about the radical course-correct we all know is needed.
(FALSE. Partly. Coz I AM concerned about the state of our world but I am certainly not overwhelmed, confused or powerless. That’s really funny. Me? Powerless? LOL)

If you answered “False” to all of these statements, congratulations! You’re probably already living from your Feminine Power.”
(Yay!)

Agenda of the soul vs Free Will.

They’re the same, child.

Serious?

Serious. When you create using your Free Will, that is the agenda of your soul. Take note: you do not know the agenda of your soul. It is only AFTER you have created the agenda of your soul will you know that THAT was the agenda of your soul.

An example, please.

The “left door cabinet” incident that happened to you yesterday. Do you think that person who lost his temper knew he was going to lose his temper over the phone, in public, that morning?

I don’t think so.

No, he didn’t know. If you put yourself in his shoes now, let’s say you are reading about yourself in a New World messenger’s blog that you sense the whole world is reading, how would you feel?

Embarrassed, I guess. But God, I don’t really wanna embarrass anyone! It’s just that I had to do it. I HAD to do it. I was walking so fast after I alighted from the bus that I reached home less than half the usual time.

Why do you think it was so?

It felt like it was my purpose. My purpose to bring awareness to everyone about the underlying problems of our relationships in our troubled world right now. I apologize to that person if he is…if he is–I’m not sure what he is feeling right now.

I will tell you what he is feeling right now. He is feeling duly chastised.

Oh.

That is how God reprimands anyone who is coming from fear whenever they are interacting with another soul. It is only your soul that will feel discomfort. Nothing happens to your body. Your physicality is your own. Your soul is your own. Your soul and body belong to you alone. Do not let anyone ever own either one. If you do, you will suffer.

What do You mean another soul owning another soul?

There are those who cannot seek their own truth because they feel they are beholden to another. They either feel guilty, or they feel they need to serve this other because of an obligation. An obligation in terms of what they may have learnt from this other person or what this other person has given to them from their time and energy or even in monetary terms.

Oh, I know a phrase to describe that in Tagalog. “Utang na loob.” “Utang” means “owe”, “na loob” means–I’m not too sure but something like “from within”.

From within as from the heart.

Yes! “I owe you from the heart.”

So in other words, you are obligated to another because of a favor given to you.

Well, yeah. Something along that line.

Do you believe in this?

What? In making someone obligated to me?

Yes.

No, of course not. I am a free spirit. I treat others the same.

Good. Otherwise the whole world owes you a big one.

Huh?

Never mind, dear. I Am just talking to Myself.

I don’t even want to know that means. Anyway. Where were we?

Nowhere. This is the end. For now.

Oh.

Reputation vs Character

23 July 2014

Reputation vs character. This has been running around my head all day yesterday. But first, may I just mention an incident that I called to myself this morning?

Go on.

Well. On the way home, while in the upper deck of the bus, there was someone who was talking on his cellphone quite loudly. He was seated at the back so I couldn’t see his face. He was giving instructions to someone. Something about looking for the “extreme left door of a cabinet.” His tone of voice started amiably enough, giving instructions to that someone on the other end. But he began to get very agitated when the other person couldn’t seem to get his instructions right. His voice was getting louder and louder and more and more agitated as he was struggling to get his instructions understood. I thought, “Any second now he’s gonna say, Why are you so stupid?!!” And guess what. He did. He sort of ended his instructions that way along with something about “switching the heater off and all the lights off” or something. While I was listening to all this, my heart and soul were in pain for that person on the other end. I had the urge to turn around to see how this person looked like but stopped myself. “Let it go, let it go,” was what I kept hearing in my head.

That was Me, dear one. It is of no use seeing the physicality of that person because you already sensed, felt his soul. His purpose was already conveyed to you.

And what purpose is that?

You know it. Say it.

That we do not have patience with each other?

Yes, and something else.

That sometimes we treat others as lesser than us.

Yes. Why do you think that is?

Coz we think we are more superior than others?

Yes.

But God, I cannot blame that person for getting agitated with someone who cannot understand simple instructions. There are simple persons who need to be given very specific instructions before they can perform exactly what you want them to do. And sometimes, others simply do not have the patience.

Then why do you think this simple persons are the way they are?

Oh.

Yes. Oh. Simple persons also have a purpose. Their purpose is not to be simple. Be not to be that. There is nothing to be ashamed of if you are a simple person and you do not understand certain things. That is the agenda of your soul. For you to be knowledgeable, you have to have no knowledge of a certain thing. Meaning, to know something, you must first not know it. Do you understand?

Yup. To fill a cup with good coffee, the cup must be empty.

Yes! Exactly. Your Dad’s cheap 3-in-1 grainy coffee is just an example.

Yeah. He didn’t want to stop drinking it even though it was really bad (no one else was drinking it) coz he could have been thinking of the money he paid for it. (Considering it’s cheap and bad, it wasn’t that much.) And so when he finished the last packet the other day, he drank Mum’s good 3-in-1 coffee. That cheap grainy coffee must have been irritating his throat before. Because now, he isn’t eradicating his pleghm that much anymore. Mum’s so agitated when he does it non-stop. The plelghm eradication sound, I mean. Especially when he’s watching TV. He spits into a–um, never mind. Too much information.

That is a metaphor regarding the pain of knowing The Truth. Those of you who have been believing the mistaken beliefs about Me and living it for most of your life are in pain when you realize The Truth because your souls are thinking of the cost or the lifetime that you have spent in making these mistaken beliefs real. As in living them to the best of your abilities. And to realize that it is not The Truth after all is very painful. Like your Dad’s throat. Those of you who cannot let go of The Old World will cause disharmony, agitation and chaos in your souls. Because your soul is The Truth. It is your bodies and minds that are protesting against the invasion of finally realizing what is true.

But God, I have been in The Old World for most of my life and I didn’t go through that.

It was not the agenda of your soul. It is not in The Plan for you to struggle with The Truth. Nothing happens by accident, child. Everything that happens in your lifetime is planned by you before you enter this realm.

You’re kidding. That means even my mistakes are planned?

Most definitely. Mistakes have a purpose, remember? And what is the purpose of The Plan? It is to realize your soul’s purpose.

Purpose, purpose, purpose! Life is so complicated sometimes!

Only if you think it is so.

Yeah. Anyway. So what is the purpose of that incident?

The pur–

Never mind. I think I know. So that I can blog about patience, not treating another as lesser and the agenda of the soul.

If you say so, dear one.

I say so. Okay. So let’s talk about reputation vs character. What’s the diff?

Meanings, please.

Right. “Reputation” means “the estimation in which a person or thing is held, especially by the community or the public generally; repute: sample: a man of good reputation.” “Character” has like a long list of meanings.

Take the one that shouts at you.

There are several actually–One: the aggregate of features and traits that form the individual nature of some person or thing. Two: moral or ethical quality: sample: a man of fine, honorable character. Three: qualities of honesty, courage, or the like; integrity: sample: It takes character to face up to a bully. And four: a person, especially with reference to behavior or personality: sample: a suspicious character.

Do you notice the difference?

Well, yeah. Character has more meanings than reputation.

Do you know why? That is because your character is from the soul and your reputation is from the world. That is why one’s “character” is more complex. It is from the soul. Focus on your character which is from the soul instead of your reputation which is of this world. The world which is of rules and regulations. As opposed to your character which is from your soul which knows no rules or regulations. Hence our tweet: Reputation is opinions of others about you while character is built by you regardless of opinions of others about you.

Awesome. You make everything so clear!

Without a messenger it would not be.

I think that’s a compliment.

It is.

Then, thank You. I love You, God.

I love you too, dear one. And everyone.
