We should recognize our strengths so we can use them purposefully.

Know Thyself — a popular aphorism since the time of ancient Greece — is the best lesson anyone at any point of time has had to offer. We are so immersed in the world outside that we completely forget to look inside, never quite understanding who we are deep down. It’s unfortunate that we allow the outside world to tell us who we are and believe them like they know best. The truth is, they don’t. While you aren’t the best judge yourself, you can certainly find out your strengths reliably and use them for success and happiness. Here are six steps.


1. Identify your core values.

Not enough people do this in their lives even though it’s crucial. Identifying or putting in place your core values and internalizing them fully is key to knowing yourself well. It’s only when you know yourself well can you get in touch with your true strengths and leverage them to make your life more meaningful.

2. Identify your best traits.

What are your key strengths as an individual? Are you kind, generous, empathetic, efficient, good at communicating ideas, solving problems? Find out what your best traits are and, on the basis of your list, identify the areas in which you fit well. This will help you learn about your core strengths and use them to succeed.

3. Identify things that you do with ease.

There are some things that probably come naturally to you. It could be solving math problems, driving a car in any terrain, or singing on pitch and improvising with the tune. These are things you don’t break a sweat over because you seem to ‘get’ them. These things can help you learn new insights on what your strengths and abilities are.

4. Identify things that give you the most joy.

The things that you’re great at aren’t always the things you love doing. You may be exceptional in listening to people and being empathetic, but you may not really enjoy the company of people, preferring solitude in nature instead. What you enjoy doing reveals a lot about your personality.

5. Identify your areas of success.

Go back into the past and try to think of things that you did really well back in the day. It could have been a project at university, an internship at a big firm, or organizing your university’s annual cultural festival. These different areas, where you did exceedingly well, can help take you in the direction of your strengths.

6. See your strengths through another’s eyes.

Many are not a great judge of themselves. They either overestimate themselves or, much more frequently, undermine their strengths and abilities significantly. In this case, asking others — anyone from a mother to an acquaintance — can tell you what they honestly think, which can help you identify your true strengths better.

Are you in the midst of a conscious awakening?

Contrary to often popular opinion, although many people can reference the “start” of their awakening, an awakening is an ongoing process. Being consciously “awake” isn’t an ending. Rather awakening is a never-ending process of becoming more consciously awake as we go along.


The more we awaken, the more we understand, and the more compassion we hold for others. The more we consciously awaken, the better we become at consciously creating our lives in the image we prefer.

With all of this being said, I’ve found that there are a few secrets to experiencing an “accelerated” conscious awakening. By this I mean that there are a few ways you can speed up the process of learning, understanding and growing consciously.

I’d like to share one such secret with you today.

The secret? EMBRACE POLARITY.

What is polarity?

Polarity is a principle that governs the universe. The principle of polarity states that everything has it’s opposite.

For instance, there are hot and cold, strong and weak, rich and poor, awake and asleep, and so on. Every argument has two sides. As you also already know, every question has its answer and every action has its equal and opposite reaction.

Polarity is persistent, consistent and omnipresent in everything we experience.

Why embrace polarity?

One of the big overall limitations of living in this dimension of time in space is that we often fight against polarity, rather than accept it as an inevitability.

For example, when we are in an argument we often become convinced that our side of the debate is the “right” side. Instead of embracing the opposing side as a natural part of existence, we push against it.

When we push against another’s opinion or belief system, we miss out on an opportunity to understand and appreciate the opposite side.

Another problem with pushing against polarity is that we end up expressing exactly what we are pushing against.

For example, when we get mad at people for lacking compassion, we ourselves demonstrate a lack of compassion. Instead of embracing and sharing compassionate with the intolerant, we ourselves become intolerant.

In our strong dislike for bad drivers, we tend towards road rage, causing us to become (you guessed it) bad drivers ourselves!

So even our very best intentions to spread love and light can become thwarted when we refuse to embrace the other side of the coin.

The more we fight against the opposite side, the less we embrace precisely what it is we want (and if you are reading this article my guess is you want things like peace, compassion, and understanding).

Embracing polarity speeds up your conscious awakening.

When we make a conscious choice to accept the opposing side, rather than fight against it, something very interesting happens.

We learn there is nothing to fear, and we truly start to accept and appreciate more and more aspects of reality and humanity.

Even better, we start to learn that even with the opposite side there is both light and dark. Again, polarity is omnipresent, so even opposite ends of the coin have opposite ends of the coin!

Those who think, speak and act differently than us actually do have positive sides to their actions. When we choose to accept the opposite side of polarity, we allow ourselves to witness the light side that exists in the dark.

Instead of seeing someone as just being a “bad” person, we learn that he is a benefit to all of us in some way, shape or form. We accept his multidimensionality, and allow ourselves to see the good that exists within him.

Beyond this, the more we accept and appreciate polarity, the better we feel, the higher our vibrations rise and the greater our capacity to consciously manifest our reality grows.

When we accept and appreciate polarity, our awareness grows at an astounding rate. We become unencumbered by fear, limitation and struggle.

Make peace with light and dark.

So, today I write this to challenge you to look at something you’ve been fearing or pushing against differently.

Try to reach for acceptance over resistance, and realize that whenever you feel fearful or upset, there’s nothing actually wrong. The only thing causing you pain is that you haven’t yet accepted the opposite side of polarity in the issue.

As long as you continue to resist the polarity, you will keep yourself from ascending to the next level of understanding. When instead you choose to accept the polarity your awareness will grow ever-more expansive.

Every person and situation contains good and bad, right and wrong, light and dark, positive and negative. Instead of pushing against the side you perceive as a threat, accept it is an inevitability and set your sights on looking for the light.

When we accept the dual nature that exist inside of all of us we allow everyone to be as they are, but we operate from a true place of compassion. We seek to understand, we love others, and we unify with the whole of our reality.

Embrace more of the polarity as you are able, and your conscious awakening will grow and expand in amazing ways. Accept the dark, and you’ll let in more of the light.

For the last week I have been frustrated beyond belief. Why? I had no idea.
Until I realized that the frustration I was feeling was due to NOT using my full potential in my life and work; to side-stepping my true capacity to create what only I can create.

Let’s take a step back for a minute.

Why do humans create? Buildings, families, businesses, communities… Why do we do it?

Somewhere inside us we feel the pulse of creation, the creative force of the universe that is constantly evolving our reality.

This the purest form of creation. But what typically happens is this: we try to create for gain. Our own personal agenda gets in the way and we find ourselves thinking about something other than the creation itself — what we’ll get out of it.

In business it’s a common, but insidious thought that governs our behaviour:

‘What is going to make me money?’

As soon as our thoughts switch to money, we have lost touch with the creative impulse and our egos start to take over, for personal gain. What we create becomes about the money first and the creation second.


To clarify — we are right to think about our livelihood, but how can we possibly know what will support our lives? Quite simply, we like to think we know because it feels safer, but we don’t.

So the golden question emerges:

What will make you enough money to live well and happy?

From my resistance to earning money in ways that made me unhealthy or unhappy, I have pondered this question for days and weeks over years. The answer has been lurking in my consciousness the whole time, but I didn’t want to hear it. Eventually I listened and this is what it said…

‘When you do your soul’s work, it will support your life.’ 

Such a simple statement, but I urge you to read it twice.

Most of us spend our lives avoiding our true soul’s work. There are plenty of people I know who think they are doing their soul’s work but they’re not. I know the signs well, because I’ve been trying to find the core of my soul work my whole life.

Get to the core of your soul work and you will live well.

Here’s how I define ‘soul work’: It is your highest potential to create something tangible that shapes even the tiniest part of this world. It’s that thing that you know you’re meant to do, but you find every reason NOT to do it. Or sometimes it’s more unconscious — what you’re doing somehow feels ‘off’ but you don’t know what else there is. Either way, things aren’t flowing, as you may notice, particularly in the form of your health, creativity, and money.

Soul work is where your highest virtues meet the needs of real people in everyday life. You can be soulful without work or work without soul, but you need soul + work to maximize your reward.

When we are creating something of value in this world, we receive something of value in return, be it money, a hug, or fruit on a tree. We each have inside us the energy to create and when we don’t use this energy up, our creative flow is stifled, our bodies choke with ailments, and money isn’t as available as it could be.

When we are doing our soul’s work, our creative energy is free-flowing and otherworldly rewards are free to flow to and through us. It is the pinnacle of what you can create now in service to others, fulfilling a genuine need in society. It is using ALL of what you have inside you right now to its full potential. No holding back some parts of you. No reserves for later. This is what makes you a powerful creator.

You ARE a powerful creator of your reality.

Yet, ultimately you don’t choose what supports your life. Your soul does. From the bird’s eye view, your soul knows the divine match for your gifts + the needs of others. That is the exchange that will support your life.

I will boldly say that if you are not thriving in health and finances (yes, I mean both at once), you have not reached the core of your soul’s work, yet.

Each of us has many things that we could do, but there is one direction that will ignite your passion and vitality more than anything else. And THAT is what will support your life, in the form of money, gifts, opportunities, relationships… whatever it takes for you, as an individual to thrive. Your soul has a plan.

While you are sidestepping your soul work, even in small ways that may seem inconsequential, you are limiting your capacity to have a thriving livelihood and lifestyle.

And there’s myriad ways that we clever humans do just that without realizing.

12 Ways You May Be Avoiding Your Soul Work

You’ve heard of self-sabotage? Well that’s exactly what avoiding your soul work means. It’s NOT doing what would actually be good for you. You know, like eating that extra handful of chips you don’t need, or watching YouTube instead of going for a walk, or hanging out with that friend who always drains you.

Here are the patterns that I have observed, the strategies that are a wonderful distraction from doing what we’re here to do. They’re behaviours that keep looping as the norm. We all have them. Is yours on this list?

1. The Rebel

Rebel for the sake of it. Do the opposite of what would actually be good for you, and create lots of drama to justify your position.

2. The Dreamer

Hang out in fantasy land. Get stuck in the trap of ‘unlimited possibilities’ or ‘going with the flow’ without committing to one strategy long enough to see the fruits of your efforts.

3. The Gambler

Gamble your time and money away. Take lots of risks without a strategy, and end up with nothing to show for it.

4. The Controller

Over-achieve. Get addicted to taking on more than you can chew just so you can conquer the challenge, and find that you’re essentially alone in your accomplishments.

5. The Sloth

Get bogged down in minutia. Stay at the ground level, thinking small without a solid plan for long-term growth.

6. The Copy Cat

Skim the surface. Focus on creating at the surface level so you keep creating the same stuff over and over.

7. The Passivist

Try to please everyone. Get pulled in a million directions by the people around you, and lose yourself in the process.

8. The Theorist

Live in your head. Create lots of theories, and never find a way to translate what’s in your head into something of real-life value.

9. The Glutton

Over-consume life. Try to do too much/everything and burn yourself out, for fear of living too small.

10. The Guru

Live in a bubble. Love the sense of safety and security so much that you don’t push yourself to accomplish anything of value to the wider world.

11. The Illusionist

Swallow your power. Go against your own tide of creativity and keep it a secret, so no-one ever discovers what you are capable of.

12. The Martyr

Give rigidly. Get stuck in the cycle of providing for everyone else’s needs, without seeing who you really are without their reflection.

Know Your Trap? There’s only one question to ask…

In my experience there are two things that are important to mention:

1.You can’t force the timing of getting to the core of your soul work. Whether you own a business or you work for someone else, the point is to live with the question “Am I doing my soul’s work?” It will bring you closer and closer until you have no choice but to acknowledge it.
And then…
2.It takes great courage to follow the creative urge when it comes. Some people sit on theirs for years and wonder why life isn’t flowing. Others who commit to follow the urge become the leaders of our age.

As Marianne Williamson says so beautifully, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.”

What change do you need to make to reach the core of your soul work?

There is nothing simple about loving the girl with the guarded heart.

She is not convinced by flowers and fancy dinners, nor won over by compliments and praise. In the beginning she is a slow dance, one step toward you, another step back, as she learns to trust the ways of your heart and the strength of your arms. The dance may be slow but it cannot be rushed, for she will sense the impatience of your steps and the way they fall out of time with hers. Dance with her. Follow the measure of her steps and in time, she will soon look to follow yours.



She will not show you her heart all at once, instead offer you a little at a time, unhurried and watchful of the way you hold each fragile piece. She longs for you to understand how much it takes her to show you these pieces; for you to trace your fingers over the scars left behind from others, to feel the whisper of your breath against her neck as you promise to hold her heart with more care than those who came before. There are parts of her heart that remain unreachable, parts she has buried under layers she will never reveal. Love these parts of her, the parts unseen, the shadows of her soul. For even the sky knows without darkness, the stars cannot adorn us with their light.

She will watch you closer than you realise, listen to every word you speak and weigh it against every action, searching for inconsistencies, seeking the truth of your word and the intention of your heart. Not because she can’t trust you, but because she is cautious, alert, wary; the stories of her past still etched upon her mind. She isn’t ready to trust her heart with you. Not yet. Not until she knows you are a man of your word, a man of steadfast hands and unchanging ways.

There is a part of her that will always remain a little detached, ready to run if she thinks her heart will get damaged again. She no longer believes in second chances, having used all of them on those undeserving of such grace. To hurt her means to lose her, for she would sooner be alone than risk losing the life she has fought so damn hard to rebuild with her own wearied hands. She isn’t there because she needs you. She doesn’t need anyone. She’s there because she has chosen you, because she wants you, because she believes you are worth the risk. And all she asks is for you not to prove her wrong in the chance she has taken, for it has cost her more than you know.

She will need more reassurance than most, she will need you to stay present, available, mindful of her scars. She will think too much, talk too little, cry too often, ask too many questions, struggle to rest in your love. She is complex. Complicated. Perplexing. Sometimes difficult.

But beyond her guarded heart lies a soul that contains the wonders of the universe. One that longs to live and love with abandon, that desires connection and intimacy and to be in relationship with someone who sees both her beauty and her scars, and knows how to fall in love with both.

She holds within her a fierce spirit; brave, strong, courageous, unrelenting; yet is also the quiet and the calm, a place to take shelter against the fury of the wind on storm-filled days. She is nurture, she is passion. She is a touch of madness against ordinary skies, a vulnerable heart with a fearless soul, a barefoot warrior who follows no trails but sets her own path.

She is grounded in her truth, accepting of her flaws, far from perfect but closer to real than most. She is wildflowers and ocean currents and meadows that dance upon the breath of summer winds, uncontained in earthly beauty and free in spiritual grace.

Broken, she knows what it means to suffer. But out of the depths of her suffering, she has come to understand love. And her guarded heart waits for the one who understands it too.

No, there may be nothing simple about loving the girl with the guarded heart.

But every day you choose to love her, she’ll prove to you why she’s worth it.

Until we redress our karmic debts, we’re doomed to be stuck on this earth plane.

How do you free yourself from the trap of karma?

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you is the basic premise of karma.

Except karma takes into account not only what you’ve done in this life and are aware of, but also what you’re done in previous lifetimes and how that impacts the souls you are engaging with.



Karma is a subtle trap, because even if you do manage to reach a point where you have redressed your outstanding karma and are only putting out good into the world, the law of karma states that that good energy you’ve put out must also be returned to you.

Effectively this means that being good is not enough to release you from the trap of karma; what you need is another mechanism entirely.

How does karma get created?

There are only two ways of looking at the world and the souls that occupy this plane: first is that we are all one and the same soul, the second is that we are all separate beings.

When you look at the world from the point of view of us all being one soul and one being, it’s really easy to see how a lack of forgiveness held against one person is truly held against yourself. On the flipside, when you look at each of us as individual beings, you’re engaging the ego – because ego is THE THOUGHT that we are separate from each other/God.

When ego is engaged you experience any one of a range of emotions that either leaves you feeling superior or inferior to the other party: judgement, fear, guilt, frustration, impatience, jealousy, envy, competition, shame, humiliation, embarrassment, vulnerability, doubt, resistance, awe or admiration.

If you feel superior to the other party then everything’s hunky dory, because we’re always happy with an imbalance that sees us at the top of the heap.

However if you feel inferior in the moment, your default reaction is going to be to try and bring the person down so that you no longer feel inferior to them. While it would stand to reason that the solution would be to equal-to the person in question, most often we aim to make the other person feel inferior, because we only know ourselves as something when we see it contrast to something else. So, their inferiority makes you superior to them. This we can live with.

Karma & ego

If ego is the thought that we are separate, then ego is going to fight very hard for you to hang onto that thought and the concepts of superiority and inferiority. Anything else would be suicide.

So your ego ramps up the cycle of doubt and anger and fear and vulnerability – whatever emotions it needs to keep you trapped in a cycle of inequality and imbalance, tied to the concept that you are inferior, striving to push you to make yourself superior.

The joke though is that the only thing that is making you feel inferior to the person in front of you is the resistance from your ego and the thoughts and feelings ego triggers inside you. Without ego you accept that we are all one being, one soul. If we’re all equal then there is no inferiority and no superiority of any one soul.

Your ego is the only part of this situation that is expressing the idea that you are inferior – mitigate your ego and the situation in question won’t cause you any pain at all. All the pain you feel in lack of forgiveness is the ego trying to protect itself – the ego’s fear.

Ego & forgiveness

In A Course in Miracles we are taught that all pain is caused by separation, which mimics the pain of the original separation from God.

Whether that separation is from an idea, a thought, a concept, a person or an experience, the true pain we’re feeling is the reminder that we are separate from God. The only way to free yourself from this pain is to forgive it and release it.

Each time you forgive you release the ego emotions affiliated to that event, and you release yourself from having to relive and resolve the issue on the karmic level. So the karmic events that would have to take place to correct the imbalance no longer need to occur.

Over time, as you forgive more and more souls, the power of your ego diminishes incrementally, enabling you to live from a place of peace, from your own soul. With each release you will feel more peaceful, calmer, more self-assured and secure.

Once you have let go the last of your karmic debts, you will be able to achieve release and finally ascend from this earth plane.

Moby (Richard Melville Hall), is an American DJ, singer, songwriter, musician, photographer and animal rights activist. He is well known for his electronic music, veganism, and support of animal rights.

Recently on his website he released a series of ambient recording designed to help people feel a great calmness. This is what he said on his website;

”Over the last couple of years i’ve been making really really really quiet music to listen to when i do yoga or sleep or meditate or panic. i ended up with 4 hours of music and have decided to give it away.

You can download it for free below or stream it on spotify, soundcloud, apple music, deezer, youtube & tidal. It’s really quiet: no drums, no vocals, just very slow calm pretty chords and sounds and things for sleeping and yoga and etc. and feel free to share it or give it away or whatever, it’s not protected or anything, or at least it shouldn’t be.

thanks, moby”
