“I’m not here to create disciples…I’m here to create teachers.”
Yoga Bhajan – Kundalini Yoga.
One of the most rewarding things about being a teacher is to create “teachers” because it validates you and your “SELF” promotion.
This is not merely to prove to the world that “your” teachers are the best but that the source energy from where you brought the information through is honoured and earthed.
On social media a few days ago one of my Reiki students paid tribute to her music teacher, Peter Egan whose death anniversary was that day, as well as Whitney Houston, whose anniversary was the same day…It was a beautiful honouring of their unique role in her life as a professional singer. I felt very touched by her tribute… This singer already teaches others her unique skills in vocals.
As a metaphysical teacher, in my business, I find my desire to teach comes from a desire to Serve. As a trained secondary teacher, the core of my work in teaching kids was my desire to Serve. (Yr 12 literature to yr 8 sport..)
In my book, The Immortal Woman, (Refer to Awaken your Immortal Intelligent Heart) these amazing Beings say……“there is no past whatsoever…all you have is this second, and that second, is all ‘YOU’ have….”
Tell yourself when you are teaching (this including parenting and every other instructional role you have) you only have this second with this “person”… It gives a sense of real power and drama to your interaction. I have seen students come on tours over the years by my sharing my love of the countries and cultures, in one sentence, its astonishing….
Teaching is Service…. Service to ourselves to bring humility, clarity and create new pathways in learning not only for ourselves but in those we interact with.
The New York bestselling author Gabrielle Bernstein, whom Oprah and others have described as “the next generation thought leader” states that all “Self Promotion” has at it core the dessire to ‘Serve and elevate your consciousness’.
If you are in your own business, you cannot invest unless you Serve ‘YOURSELF’….so true…. You can be your own ‘great teacher’.
You can be the great guru, mystic etc. Teach yourself to “self love”.
WHEN YOU TEACH YOURSELF TO ‘SELF LOVE’ YOU BEGIN TO RECEIVE LOVE…
Receiving love is a Service, a Service to your Heart. This Service elevates your consciousness and bring more ‘Self Love’ to YOU.
“Heart, I Love You”
