Connecting Ourselves With Universal Consciousness In Times Of Uncertainty With Jennifer Longmore
As always, I am excited about this show. I have a special guest Jennifer Longmore is with me and I’m excited to talk to her about soul purpose. She is a leading authority on soul purpose. She’s an elite business coach, a thought out media personality, and a three-time bestselling author. She is world-renowned for her laser-like clarity in seeing into the depths of your soul and bridging your connection to universal consciousness. Jennifer Longmore, welcome to the show.
How are you?
I’m fantastic. You and I were talking before we started the show officially. There are many different ways we could be navigating this. I’m mindfully focusing on making each moment. Life is a bunch of moments strung together. How can I make each moment count? How can I be present? How can I be the person that if I look at the end of my life am I going to be proud of how I navigated various situations in life, including this? That’s my filter for how I show up moment-to-moment.
Here at the show, we feel like life is a game at birth at the start of regulation. When you die that’s the end of regulation and how you play within that timeframe dictates your legacy and the contribution that you have on the game. How the impact that you’ve had on life, all of that is dictated by those moments in between. How we play is important. I love when I was introducing you, the thought of you bridging the gap connection between us and universal consciousness and especially at a time like this. We all need that spiritual connection because without that, there’s enough uncertainty looking out there at all the things that are going on. When you don’t have that connection to universal consciousness, I can imagine that it’s a lonely, dark, seemingly unbearable view of the future. First of all, tell us how you got into this being able to make that gap, and then let’s move into how someone can strengthen that if necessary, especially in times like this?
We all are masters of dealing with uncertainty. We do it every single day, every moment, leaving our house we have to deal with the unknown. We don’t know if we’re going to get hit by a bus. We don’t know if we’re going to trip and fall and break our ankle. We don’t know when we get on an airplane if it’s going to land. I’m not saying that to be catastrophizing things. It’s that we have had to learn from the moment we stepped on this planet to deal with uncertainty. We’re more prepared for moments like this in our life, and then we’re even giving ourselves credit for this is more magnified and amplified. For those of us that are connected with a sense of there’s something bigger happening here, what’s happening? What’s the game that we’re being asked to play? In some ways, it feels that way. It is weird to have the awareness that there’s something bigger that’s happening and not be able to control it. We have to look at, “What do I have control over? I have control over my moments, perceptions, emotions, and how I use my time.” There are lots of things we have control over in this time in life but at any time.
Back to my story, I grew up in a very spiritual home. My grandfather was solving crimes with the police as a psychic medium. This was the way my family talked. We all had this gift of being able to see things and know things. When I was a kid, I didn’t know that I knew things that other people didn’t know. I was freaking people out all the time. I’m telling them things that I thought I was having conversations. Meanwhile, they were jaw gobsmacked strikes. They’re like, “I don’t know what you’re talking about.” I had to learn how to censor myself because I’m also a healer and I don’t like making people feel bad. I can see on people’s faces that I was freaking them out. I didn’t know how to be in the world, which each of us can relate to in differing degrees. We all have been given life experiences, where we feel like we have to censor ourselves or be invisible. Maybe it’s safer to be invisible or to be low-key things like that.
I was angry that I had this gift, but at the time it felt like a curse. I thought that the universe was mad at me. They were making me think I was crazy that this was the rest of my life. How am I going to be on this planet for another 70-plus years or whatever it is with this thing that I don’t know how to use? I realized viewing it as a curse was keeping me in pain and having a distorted view, you could say of myself in the world. I decided, “What would happen if I leaned into this? What if I allowed this to be fun?” Me being angry at it, isn’t making this gift go away so what would happen if I leaned into it and started playing with it? Lo and behold, I started meeting people that have the same gift outside of my family because I thought we were these weirdos that were living the way we were. I got into crystals, numerology, and astrology and then I had a car accident when I was 21. I always had all this intuition.Life is a bunch of moments strung together. Click To Tweet
After that, I started getting Reiki to heal from all of the trauma and damage like physical damage to my body. That’s where I got to bridge the intuition with the energy. I finally had a different language to use. The person that was working with me at the time kept saying, “You need to take Reiki.” I’m like, “I’m in school. I can’t take any other classes.” I had no concept of what a Reiki class was. I thought, “I’m going to have to study. I’m going to have to write papers, I’m already doing that. I can’t do that.” I listened to my gut and I went and within fifteen minutes I was like, “I’m going to become a Reiki master.” This felt weird for me to step to say. In my early twenties, I did that but when I left university, I went into forensic social work and follow the conventional path because that’s all I knew. I knew my purpose was to help people, to be a healer and a teacher, but I had all these conventional concepts of, “How come I didn’t go to school and become a teacher?” I also didn’t know that I could have my own business.
I thought, “There are no jobs for Reiki masters. Where do you apply for a job as a Reiki master?” The universe opened up some more people to me and then I started seeing, “There were people making a living out of doing what I do.” When I left forensics, I went into corporate and did investigations there, but that allowed me to work a true 9:00 to 5:00. At night I could go to networking events and learn what these aliens were speaking. It all felt like an alien language to me. I thought, “I’ve got to hang out with these people and figure out if I can be one of them.” All I know is you go and get a job and you work for someone else until you retire. That’s all I knew. Learning that, “I could do this,” I finally took the leap and here we are with a thriving business where you’re helping people align to their purpose and the rest is history.
Tell us about into Reiki and you say, “I want to be a Reiki.” What happened in those fifteen minutes that made you make that decision?
It was almost like a homecoming. It was unknowing. I don’t know if you’ve ever had this, I call it when frogs jump out of your mouth where you say things and you’re watching yourself saying it going, “Did I say that out loud? Did I commit to that?”
It happens all the time.
It happened for me even when I kept getting guided to invest in real estate a few years ago. I’m like, “I’m a healer. What do I know about real estate?” Here I was watching myself pursuing this real estate venture. It wasn’t making sense that because the pull was strong I had to go with that pull. That’s a tip for everyone reading for those moments where you find yourself saying yes to something that makes no logical sense, but it’s a frog jumps out of your mouth. That’s a good thing to follow. Anytime I follow those things, they’ve ended up working out well for me.
Fast forward, you’re a Reiki master. You know how to connect us to the universal consciousness, which we’re going to get into a little bit more, but on our way there, could you help us understand what that is? That happens a lot to people and it could be a little scary. People who don’t even know might not want to touch that. I was talking to a doctor and we were talking about starting a podcast and he would love to start a podcast. He said, “The reason why I haven’t done that is that I feel that I know my field, but there’s something about me that makes me feel that I don’t know it well enough to tell someone else.” He called it the imposter syndrome or something like that.
We kept talking and he talked about how he knows it. Sometimes things like this happen to him where things come out of his mouth and he’s like, “Where did I get that?” It also creates a sense of uncertainty or maybe a lack of confidence because you know that you didn’t come up with that and that came from somewhere, even though it came out of your mouth. There’s this imposter syndrome, how do we navigate that? Realizing that we have these moments where those types of experiences happen, things like you said, a frog jumps out of your mouth. How do we master this process in order to bring value to those that need it and even to ourselves?
I don’t know that we ever mastered it, it’s a journey of mastery. With each growth opportunity we have, and every time we settle into a new way of being, and we’re out of our comfort zone, the first time you did your first podcast, you were comfortable enough to do it, but you probably were uncomfortable. Eventually, as you do more and more, then you start going, “I’ve got this podcast thing. Look at me.” It’s all a journey. When I was in high school, I thought I was going to become a public school teacher. I ended up going into developmental services and I was a teacher in the classroom in grade eleven. It was part of my credit and I got to go and teach.
All these parents are saying, “My kids are coming home and talking about you. We have all these contracts from the government. We want you to work one-on-one with our child, with Down syndrome, autism, or whatever they had.” I went that path. I got paid well for already, even to this day, the money was great. I kept getting a job after the job. Here I was then being led to go into more of a social work realm, which made sense over time. Here I am now though, as a real estate investor and a business owner. I have other things going on. I didn’t expect to be a landlord when I grew up. I didn’t expect to be a day trader. I didn’t expect to do all these things because we’re conditioned to believe that you have one path in life.
You pick a lane and you stay in that lane. We’re allowed to drive in many lanes, either progressively or simultaneously. It’s an identity thing like, “Who I am with you is different than who I am with my son.” For example, at the core of the same person, but I’m going to show up differently with you than I am with my son, my husband, and my clients. We wear multiple hats and that’s part of being human. We’re allowed to try a bunch of things on. Once I realized, “What am I?” It’s not about, “Who am I? What am I?” What’s underneath all of this energy for me and out of my mouth came to magic. “I am magic. I make magic happen.”
That’s my mantra every day, “I am magic.” Even in this situation that we’re dealing with on the planet, I’m like, “I’m magic. Let’s go create some magic chop-chop, pitter-patter, let’s get at her. What magic am I going to create during this time? This is what I am. This is at the foundation of everything I do. Some people are joy, truth, nurturing, but underneath the core of me, how I show up in any situation I bring magic, that’s what I am. It’s profound. When we can ask that question, not who am I, but what am I? That allows us to bring that energy to everything we do.
That’s a game-changer. I love that because I’ve heard many people say when it comes to overcoming challenges or accomplishing a goal, “This is who I am. I’m this way. I can’t help how I am or who I am.” Everybody isn’t X, everybody isn’t Y, and you fill in the blank. It’s all used as an excuse to not be this or not accomplish that or not overcome whatever. We hinge back on who we are as a being, but not what we are. When you get in touch with what you are, instead of who you are, then that changes everything.
The whole perception changes because we base our ability on who we are, the traits and the characteristics, maybe the thought patterns. When you look at what we are with energy, capable of changing, producing, creating, imagining and those bring out even more possibilities that we’re capable of bringing forward. All of that other stuff about, who I’m being? The characteristics and the traits that become are secondary, not that it should be completely ignored. They’re not the primary source of who you are, which is not the primary soul source of what you can do, become, create, or contribute.
The same is true for you and for everyone reading my purpose can be, “Where else can I spread magic? Where else can I create magic? Where else can I activate magic and other people?” That’s why it’s easy for me to come and join you. I was honored that you invited me to the show. I know my purpose, my purpose is to be a conduit for whatever’s meant to fly out of my mouth but something I’m going to say, hopefully, as the same happens for me where I hear someone say something to me and I go, “That’s genius.”
If I can activate magic and even one person that is my purpose because our purpose is more about, “What are we doing? How are other people feeling in relation to us versus what we’re doing?” If I’m activating a-has on people, that’s my purpose. I don’t decide that for them. They either receive that or they don’t. It’s liberating because then of all we do, even if we’re not entirely clear on our purpose is to be purposeful about everything we do, how we craft our day, how we start our day, how we move our body, how we spend our time and how we interact with other people. Our larger purpose starts to reveal itself to us.We are all masters of dealing with uncertainty. Click To Tweet
You started the show with every day we deal with some level of uncertainty and I can see the conflict dealing with that level of uncertainty when your whole life is based on who you think you are. Instead of living from a place of, “What I am?” I’m living from a place of, “This is what shapes me. This is the characteristic of me.” When something gets out of line with that uncertainty, that can cause a lot of frustration and friction. You feeling misplaced toward it, discombobulated because there’s not this harmony as you would define it. When you see yourself as what you are, it’s like the water, you are able to adapt and flex to any type of uncertainty.
It’s realizing your purpose as a human being in the way you are connected with source, which is a great segue into where we’re going next. You’re able to understand how it is that you’re supposed to show up and be of positive service and value to any type of situation that shows up. The uncertainty is a playing and a practice field for you to produce your magic. That’s the way I’ve seen it more based on the way you’ve explained it. What’s key here is having that connection to the universe in order to understand this level of play. In your role, in the things that happen in the universe, in the environment, even in the middle of uncertainty, like what we’re dealing with now. Before we dive too deep into that, what is your definition? Let’s help everyone understand the definition of universal consciousness.
I hate to offer definitive definitions only because I feel like our understanding of the universe evolves as we evolve our own consciousness. I would say that universal consciousness is the collection of all of the evolution of our souls, not only in this existence but then all other existences. Whether we consider that there’s no time in space and that we’re living in parallel realities for whether we believe in past lives or whatever, that there’s something bigger than us that we contribute to every time we grow and evolve. Every time we contribute to it, it contributes back to us wisdom and understanding.
I spend less time trying to understand it and more time surrendering to it. Because the capacity of our human brains that we use is small in comparison to what we can access, I like to live in the question every day and say, “Universe, how are you going to surprise and delight me?” That’s my way of surrendering to the universe then the universe will bring me cool ways to delight me that day. When I hand over the question and already by doing that, decide that I don’t know everything and I’m surrendering to be shown things that are out of my realm of consciousness because the mind sees what it sees based on its experiences.
As soon as we evolve our experiences and then we evolve our perception. I’ve learned in my journey and from all the people I’ve coached that it’s my job to keep letting it as much life as possible, to keep connecting with as many people as possible to keep connecting with nature, to keep being in the energy of connection. It’s through that my consciousness evolves because I’m willing to evolve my experiences and allow my experiences to turn into wisdom, which allows me to make different choices, which then snowballs and snowballs.
How does one expand? We’re here now, where we’re ready to talk about making that connection. For those who may not have that connection, may not understand what we’re talking about being connected to universal consciousness the fact that’s a two-way street. You said the more you give, the more it gives back and some people may not understand it. How do we make that connection?
I like to ground myself in practical spirituality because it’s great to talk in all concepts, but then how do we bring that into reality? For example, be around a dog. I have a dog and I look into her eyes. Back to your point around, how do we know that we’re good enough? If you look into a dog’s eyes and if we looked at ourselves the way dogs look at us, we would be loving ourselves up all. We would be accomplishing so much in the world because there was this immense, unconditional love. Dog spelled backward is God, whether people resonate with that word or not if we assume God means consciousness or some higher aspect. There’s a level of infinite love that comes through them. There’s nothing you can do to a dog that’s going to make them hate you. They look at you, like, “You’re the best thing ever. That’s the best idea ever.” They constantly are like, “Everything’s a great idea.” For some people it’s connecting with animals, for other people it’s connecting with nature.
Nature is cool because it has no ego if you want to be clear on your consciousness and what your intentions are. Whether something is a good fit or not spending time in nature, when there’s no other information coming at you other than space and neutrality, it’s in that space that you can connect with something bigger. For other people, it is getting things like a Reiki session or getting acupuncture to open up energy meridians. For me, I’ve been teaching the Akashic records for a long time, which is the energy of the soul. The Akashic records are this etheric document that holds all of our thoughts, deeds, and actions from this lifetime and other lifetimes, where we decide, “What’s my purpose going to be in this lifetime? Who am I going to choose as my parents? Who are the best people to help shape my purpose?”
Spoiler alert, it’s usually that they’re the opposite of what you’d expect them to be. If we’re meant to learn compassion, we maybe have the most or the least nurturing parents to help us cultivate the thing that we’re here to share. I see that with a lot of people. The records hold a lot of information about, “What are we here to do? What are we here to contribute? How are we here to grow? What are we here to master and how are we going to be a contribution to the planet?” When we connect in with those, we can constantly receive information about whether we’re on track.
I don’t know that wherever off track, but I do feel like sometimes we stall on our path. Our path is our path, but sometimes we sit on it cross-legged and then we got our fingers in our ears and, “La, la, la, I don’t want to hear.” It’s a powerful tool because it connects us in with the bigger information, the guides and the consciousness that we want to be holding. I get it. I don’t want to bypass that. Spiritual bypassing is not helpful in the situation. I recognize there’s a lot of actual pain. Three-dimensionally from people there’s a lot of fear, stuff going on and opportunity. For those of us that connect them with consciousness, we can be in the end also.
We can be aware that this is a bizarre, surreal, crazy time, and that there’s an opportunity. We can be aware that there’s a lot of bizarre human behavior being demonstrated and have the awareness that there’s shifting beyond what we can put words to. We can be in that and also of what’s going on. At the core of who we are as people, no matter where we live in the world, no matter what our religion is, sexual orientation, race, culture, etc., we all want to be loved, accepted, and respected. That will drive our behavior and we all fear abandonment and rejection. That will also drive our behavior. Beyond that, we all want to know that our life has meant that we matter and that we’ve been a contribution.
Those last three things that I pointed out, is what’s getting kicked up a lot for people. Sometimes as we talked about before, we need a significant kick in the pants in order to motivate us to do the thing that we’ve known we needed to do. A lot of my clients and prospects that follow me on Facebook and stuff, they knew what they needed to do in their business to help people. They’re finally taking action in part because they think, “I’m going to have to go back and get a job if I don’t make my business work.” Also, we’re all feeling this call. I do. We’re all feeling called to show up in a more purposeful way and amp up our leadership to have a conviction of service that we didn’t have before.
As you were talking about the path, I believe that we are on a path. We’re not off the path. It’s like in a game. We can’t expect a game to be easy every game. We can expect a harmony of life to be roses and flowers all the time. If you’re not smelling the roses or the flowers, then you’re outside of harmony. I don’t think so. There are ebbs and flows. There are ups and downs. There are peaks and valleys. All of it is purposeful, meaningful, and necessary. It’s that when we get in those valleys, we feel that there’s something wrong. There may be discomfort and there may be views of the behavior of people in the way they’re responding to it. This is weird. Maybe outside of what you would consider good or even necessary, but it happens. There’s still a responsibility that we have to have, even in those moments. We have to hear, “How do we navigate? How do we play this game?” We still have to stay connected.
For some of us, we knew that there were actions that we needed to take prior to this. We didn’t do it. This causes us to take the necessary actions and then for others. We didn’t know that there was the action we need to take. This is an opportunity to gain awareness on maybe something new, a different way of doing business, being of service and feeling that we’re giving that contribution that we are of value. We don’t walk around life in a straight line. If I wanted to go to a destination, there are going to be curves and turns, things that have to navigate in order to get where I want to go. If you look at a tree, I’ve seen some trees determined to grow and get the sunlight that it needs for photosynthesis from the sun, but it seems misconfigured. It is a testament to its determination to navigate whatever it has to navigate in order to reach its destination. We have to take on that same approach. I mentioned water that was up on a mountain that melted has a journey that has to travel to get to its destination. There’s a lot in the way. Thousands and thousands of miles, and yet it happens. It navigates it and it is able to flex and adapt. Sometimes it’s what carves its way through caves and mountains, or what have you. We have to adopt that same philosophy.
Water is one of the most powerful destructive forces on earth once you get a lot of it moving. When you think about people, if we can come together in times like this, we can be that force that is able to get us as humankind to a destination in us adopting that philosophy. It’s a choice. You don’t have to do that. In order to dominate, play and change the game, to me, it’s one of the most positive attitudes you can have towards something like this. Being equipped to do that is a sense of resilience. Things are going to happen in life. You talked about control. We can’t control what happens in the game. It’s only how we respond to the things that happen in the game. That’s completely all day, every day on us. We have to make sure that we are of the right mindset and connected to the right source to be able to understand. How do we perceive this? That perception is either going to cause defeat or the opportunity to win.
What are some of the things that you do to not get distracted by and to stay connected? Everyone has some level of connection. Even if you call yourself an atheist, there’s still some level of spiritual connection and it’s the perception of that connection. Whether you call it God, there’s some type of higher power that you connected to. You can define it by whatever and I’m with you. I don’t get into understanding it or completely define it. I’m more so, how does it work? How do I use it? That’s how I live, but we get distracted. Sometimes that connection that we have could become less of a connection. Sometimes it takes conscious effort to cultivate that connection there, maintain and sustain that connection. What are some of the things you do, especially during times like this, to keep your head in the game and stay connected? It’s that positive energy that keeps you performing at a high level or your magic.The moments you find yourself saying yes to something that makes no logical sense are good things to follow.

I follow what I call genius habits and I had this awareness like, “I forgot on my bucket list that I want to be an inventor.” It’s one thing I would love to do before I leave this planet is to invent something life-changing for humanity, something that is useful and a huge contribution to humanity. It hit me. I’m like, “I’m being given space during this time. I am magic. That’s what I am. I’m going to activate my genius mind. I’m going to call in genius frequencies into my energy field. I’m going to open up to receive this download whatever this is.” I know it hasn’t come in yet, but I will let you know it does, but I listen to Mozart or Beethoven throughout the day.
Those are considered genius frequencies. I wake up every day at 5:00 and I do my morning pages, which is a stream of consciousness writing. It’s almost like a windshield wiper for the brain. I dump everything out three full pages, 8.5×11 pages and then I start my regular journaling. Here’s what I’m creating in my life. “Isn’t this great that all of these things are showing up? I’m grateful that these things have happened.” Even though they haven’t happened yet, I’m always writing from my future self, but as though things are happening and I exercise every morning, first thing. I want to release all the brain chemicals that are going to allow me to feel connected, feel motivated, and feel happy.
I listen to or I read something inspirational. I started the book called Disrupt You by Jay Samit. He’s a genius. I don’t know if you’ve ever heard any interviews with him. That man is super smart. This is a perfect time to read this book. I had ordered honestly about 30 books before all of this happened. I didn’t understand why it was on this big binge to order book after book. Now, I have all the time in the world to read. I’m watching interviews on YouTube with people that are innovators, inventors and people that are game-changers and tapping into a higher consciousness than mine. Tapping into billionaires and tapping into people that are operating at a different frequency. Even if I can’t physically be with those people, as long as I’m inviting them into my consciousness.
It allows me to hold a different state of being in a different perception of what’s going on. I’m sure many of us can relate to this intellectually, we know we’re meant to be the lighthouse for people, not the life raft, but I was trained to be the life raft. I worked in forensics for years. I’m made for this. As soon as this happened, I was like, “I’m going to go into crisis mode. I’m going to go and throw it some life rafts.” I realized, “I’m made for this and I’m already a calm person, but it’s going to weigh me down if I try to be the life raft for everyone.” I can only hold many people in the life raft before I start to sink too. That’s not of service to anyone.
As much as there are a lot of people suffering, I’m going to be a greater contribution to be the lighthouse. I’m carving out even more time to be even clearer about how I’m showing up so that I can be as bright of a light as I can in the darkness so people can find their way to shore. As opposed to all of the effort that’s required and sending out a life raft, yanking it back to shore with maybe 3 or 4 people in it. Sending it to another life raft and potentially swimming out to get someone that falls out of the life raft. Those are things I do anyway. I’m making sure because we are water and we’re made mostly of water.
It’s my job to make sure my water levels are high. Those water levels are clear that I’m being extra mindful about what I led into my energy field. I can’t have anything throwing me off because I have to be my best version of me for me. More importantly, if I want to show up that way for my family, friends, clients, colleagues, and so on, then it’s my duty to protect that. It’s my purpose to share that energy. I have a lot of work to do as we all do. I have a greater sense of conviction than I ever had before. Whatever I need to do to make sure that I’m showing up is in my control and I’m going to do what I need to do.
This is a call to play a bigger game and being a sports person, sometimes in the game opposition can do something to expose you to your weakness. To me, this is what this is, especially for America and for the world. Listening to you say that, not being a life raft or being a lighthouse for people is profound because you can look at the media and the news. You can see that people were not prepared for this to happen in their game. They were caught off guard and not to toot my own horn here, but the level of I’m not going to call it to struggle, but a resistance that’s going on is something that I’ve dealt with for years ever since I’ve had that accident.
I’ve been in a place of isolation. I’ve been to a place where I’m quarantined. I don’t have a disease. I have a physical disability that puts me in a place where not many people are in that space. You feel like you’re in that place by yourself. I’ve had a lot of time to read and understand who I am and how I can show up given my circumstances. Honestly, I feel that it’s a necessary practice for people. You don’t get an opportunity to go through something like that unless something happened to you. You experienced an injury or something like this happens, and you’re forced in that space. I feel that this is a call to action to strengthen our ability to be resilient.
Here’s a testament, we’ve experienced this and everything has come to a halt. This is a timeout. It’s like, “We got hit in the face. Let’s go and call time out.” “Coach, what are we doing? How do we do this? How do we navigate this?” This is a natural thing. It’s almost like we haven’t experienced this before, but we have as a country, we’ve had 9/11. We can go back to all of the things that have happened, we’re going to recover, but our initial response is like, “The world is coming to an end.” You can go to the grocery stores. You can go to many places and see the initial reaction, isn’t that strength, courage, and confidence?
It’s more fear, anxiety, and uncertainty. There’s a call to be resilient to understand that this is an opportunity. Let’s view this in a different way. This is an opportunity to connect with each other. In some ways, we are doing that. People like you and I, we have an even higher responsibility to demonstrate these types of characteristics and share. At the same time, I feel like we have to be that resilience for people. It’s not necessarily save them, but show them how to save themselves. I appreciate that experience and call that you have to be a light.
All of us, we have to be a light. There’s a responsibility for all of us within our individual worlds, how are we going to respond? What are we going to do with this time? We are in a place of isolation. It’s with you. It’s you with a source. You’re in a place where you’re not looking at the next person. You have to spend time with you and discover your own resilience, ability to bounce back and creativity in the time of adversity. I feel like when you’re put in a place like that it’s for a reason. You have to recognize like the timeout is not to get out the game and take a breath, although that’s part of it.
It’s to understand what the next move is. To understand, maybe evaluate not so much what you’re doing wrong, but what are some other things that we can do in order to meet the objective? Sometimes it takes quiet time. Sometimes I’ll walk out on stage and I’m doing talks and I let people know I say, “You look at me. You can see my crutches and disability, but there’s one thing that I have an advantage over all of you.” You look at me, you may see a disadvantage physically, but I have an advantage. That advantage is I spend a lot of time in isolation.
Whereas many of you have it because life is full of distractions that you don’t get the opportunity everywhere you go, there’s a cellphone, media, family, jobs, this and that. We don’t get the opportunity to have isolation, to think about what we’re talking about. Our connection with source and our role in that. That’s a great big advantage. Here we have something that we feel is threatening to the world. It’s the biggest opportunity that we’ve probably seen in a long time that one little piece, the isolation piece. There’s so much power that can come out of calmness and stillness.
That is a huge key to connecting to universal consciousness because if we’re avoiding intimacy with ourselves, we’re avoiding intimacy with all other ways to connect, connecting with other humans, the planet, and the universe. I remember reading something when all of this first went down, that the reason why so many people were panicked is that they realized they were going to finally have to be with themselves. All of the distractions that they’ve been putting in the way of connecting with themselves, their third eye, and all of the things that matter above and beyond our physical existence are what people are nervous of. What am I going to discover about myself and my power? We’re way more afraid of our power than we are our weaknesses.
If you ask me, this is a nudge to go through that. I believe that every time you try to do something for the first time, there’s always this sense of uncertainty about it maybe a hesitation. You don’t know what the outcome is going to be. It feels that it may not be a good one because you feel like you don’t know what you’re doing. You don’t have any level of confidence around it because of the first time dealing with it. Being with yourself may make you feel that way if you’ve not spent that much time. If you don’t know what the outcome with that, it could be you don’t know the outcome of your power. It could be when you discover that but play with it. It’s like getting on a bike the first time without training wheels, you probably fell off walking. That took a few months for you to learn how to walk. You fell over and over again, but eventually, you got it to the point where you can walk. You can dance and you don’t even have to think about it consciously. It’s something that you do. I don’t think this is any different than that. This is a nudge to take that step, to get over the discomfort. It’s important because there are two things. The world needs you.
When you look at the people that are successful in life, what they’ve been able to accomplish and the amenities that they’ve brought to us, the things that we get to enjoy because they’ve been successful. The Einsteins, Wright brothers, Bill Gates, Zuckerbergs of the world, and many others that have created things that we enjoy. The fact that we’re on this call wherever you are and we’re having a powerful conversation without being physically next to each other is wonderful. Even what you do with what you practice in the way that you can help someone strengthen their connection and understand how their light is important in the world, which is exactly where I’m going. Those people aren’t set aside. It’s not like someone said, “We’re going to take 1% of the population of the entire world and those are the ones that are blessed with being able to make the world better for everyone else. They’re going to have wonderful lives. They’re going to experience the abundance of the world and everyone else they’re going to get something less than it.” It’s a choice. We’re all called to that level of existence.The mind that sees what it sees, sees based on its experiences. Click To Tweet
We all have something that’s useful. I need you because I only can do what the universe has created within the inside of me. Not saying that there are limits, but there’s something purposeful and specific. It’s not limited. It’s purposeful and specific for me, there’s something purposeful and specific for you. If we don’t discover what that is and bring that, then that’s the purpose of our game from the time that we started this conversation offline and we’re in it online, which is good. From the time that the doctor smacks you on the bottom and you begin to cry, that’s the beginning of regulation for you. You don’t know when that time is up.
You don’t know when the end of regulation is going to be for you, but within that timeframe, whatever is purposeful and specific for you, it’s a responsibility and something that you get to do. The fact that we’re here, we get to do that. You have the privilege to understand what’s purposeful and specific to you. It’s a privilege and a responsibility so that you can bring that contribution to the world. Life is purposeful. There’s so much order. There’s a purpose for it all. I was talking to someone the fact that you’re here, the possibility of life is small. The probability of you being here, you’ve defeated the odds to show up. When ready to look at the sperm getting to the egg, millions and millions don’t make it, but you made it.
That says something about you. The fact that you’re here, there’s something about you that we need this specific organism to show up because there’s something purposeful and specific about this particular organism that the world needs. You get to discover and explore that, and bring that forward. There’s someone else here that needs that. It could be a life or death situation. I don’t only look at everything that we get to enjoy. I also think about the things that we’re not enjoying, the things that we haven’t seen, the things that haven’t been discovered. The cure to certain diseases, maybe something that would have prevented such a massive outbreak. We have to be on it because you don’t know the impact of not bringing your purposeful and specific contribution to the world. There are consequences. We’re living in consequences. When I wake up every day, I want to make sure that I’m on purpose because I don’t want anyone to experience the consequences of me not playing my best game.
The cool thing about times like this is that a lot of game-changing, global inventions happen during this time. Airbnb was created during the recession. This isn’t a recession. This is a situational economy. That’s created by a health issue. It’s not created by a series of things that happen in the stock market, but Airbnb, Pinterest, Uber, and all companies were born out of the 2008 recession. In times like this where there’s a significant economic downturn, more millionaires are made during this time in history than any other time. It’s because we wake up to, “What am I being called to do? What’s the contribution I want to have with the world?” That’s the question that all of us are being faced with.
The people that are struggling, it’s more that, “I could die. That’s my fear. I’m going to die.” Our fear isn’t dying. Our fear is, “Am I going to leave this planet not having fulfilled my purpose, not having been the contribution that I want it to be?” That’s ultimately the question all of us are playing with. We get to dance with it, resist it, be afraid of it or whatever. We get to choose how we want to be in a relationship with that. Ultimately, that’s the question we’re living in all the time, but it’s moments like this in history that is going to bring that into our face so much more. It’s our decision because every choice has cause and effect. Whether we choose to lean into this or lean away from it, all of that will have cause and effect.
Jennifer, this has been a wonderful conversation with you. I don’t want to bring it to an end, but how can people connect if they wanted to learn more about you, maybe hire you to speak or to coach them? How can they connect?
I spend a lot of time on Facebook, which I know is not everyone’s cup of tea, but I have a group there called The Purpose Posse, which is for spiritual entrepreneurs. My website is www.SoulJourneys.ca. When you go to my website, there’s a free gift on how to connect with your Soul Purpose. I have a worksheet on the nine most powerful questions you need to ask yourself to get clearer on your purpose. I have training on how to access your Akashic records. It’s a juicy, free gift and something we’ve had over 30,000 people download it or something crazy like that.
Thank you. Once people are in the community, then they can always find out more about how I can support them and what’s available.
What is the big vision that you are creating, Jennifer?
We don’t know what’s going to happen with our existence on this planet. Meaning, we don’t know what direction humanity is going to go. What I want to do is activate the light in as many people as I can. Awaken people to their full access to consciousness as I can, that’s going to be my contribution to the world. I’m going to keep expanding my business with that in mind and doing it from a joyful place. I feel like joy is one of the highest frequencies we can be in. We don’t know what’s going to happen with this planet. We don’t know what’s going to happen with humanity, but we do know that in order to ascend on our journey, that we have to embody a certain degree of light and the easiest way to do that is to be enjoyed.
How can I spread as much light and joy as possible through the vehicles that I have? Whether it be through my podcasts or your show or my business through books, and understanding that the universe is going to take care of the rest. There are other things being orchestrated that I can’t even see but understanding my part and waking up every day saying, “How can I be a contribution to my journey? How can I allow my journey to be a contribution to me? How can I be a contribution to other people’s journey?” By living in those three questions every day, and then I can go to bed at night with peace of mind, regardless of what’s going on in the world.
Thank you for allowing your light to shine here on the show. This has been a juicy magic game sheet conversation. I can feel the energy. I’m sure that the readers can feel the energy that you and I have shared on this show. I’m grateful to connect, hear, see you and to be a part of what you are creating. Thank you so much for coming on the show. I appreciate that.
Thank you. I’m honestly honored and privileged to be here. Thanks for including me.
Thank you. As we bring the show to an end, we always like to end with the note on how to dominate our game. Not just change it, but dominate our game and win like a champion. What message would you leave with us?
There’s so much to say, and it all boils down to a decision. If we decide, “I’m dominating.” Energy always moves after a decision is made. If I decide I’m going to dominate my industry, I’m going to dominate this situation or I’m going to dominate the game, whatever that game is, and it will be so because I’ve already decided it’s going to happen. Everything that can be in support of that decision will start to show up.Energy always moves after a decision is made. Click To Tweet

There you have it, another successful episode of the Game Changer Mentality show. Whatever you’re brewing in your mind after reading that, a lot of ideas maybe percolating, how you want to show up, how you want to play the game. Maybe this little timeout has been valuable for you and you’re thinking about how you’re going to execute and perform whenever you step back on the field. Whenever all of this was going on is over, decide. Remember, it’s not so much who you’re going to be. It’s what you are. You’re magic. As Jennifer shared with us, we’re all magic. Decide what magic you’re going to execute. Until next time, dominate your game and win like a champion.
