Sheryl Glick host of “Healing From Within” and author of The Living Spirit Answers for Healing and Infinite Love which shares stories of awakening and possibilities for manifesting a healthier world is most delighted to welcome Rhys Thomas author of Discover Your Purpose who will share with us 5 Life Purpose Profiles used to unlock your hidden potential so you may live the life you were born to live.
Sheryl and Rhys share their experiences in hopes of finding out who we are, where life comes from, and how to discover our life purpose so we may utilize both our soul and physical qualities to live a successful healthy life. Many of us have found that when we truly understand our dual nature as spiritual beings having a physical life, we are better equipped to deal with karma, social conditions, and the needs of our soul being to direct us towards our true destiny and life plan.
Rhys Thomas who is the creator of the Rhys Method Transformation System that is taught exclusively at the Rhys Thomas Institute shares ways to identify your primary life-purpose moving towards your calling, embracing strengths and rejecting unhealthy behaviors. Throughout his career as a tennis professional coach business owner author husband father public speaker marital artist healer and soul reader Rhys discovered that people who change the world have something in common…they are not planning and thinking about who they should be, they are living and being called to their highest mission from a fearlessness to grow and be more each day.
Rhys helps us understand the term energy medicine for as many of us know, “everything is energy” and understanding energy is the key to finding life purpose, happiness, success and love. Energy medicine, energy therapy, energy healing or spiritual healing are branches of alternative medicine. This idea itself contains several methods….hand on healing or hands off- distant healing, where the patient and healer are in different locations. Many schools of energy healing exist including bio-field energy, spiritual healing, contact healing, distant healing, therapeutic touch, Reiki or Qigong Learning different modalities helps the practitioner to further refine their inner soul being and to be more aware of their full potential to serve and share this inner wisdom.
Sheryl as a Reiki practitioner and medium finds the intuitive readings she does before a session encourages a person to know and love themselves more, and understand their relationships and challenges in a new way. As their thoughts change and old restrictions and fears are let go of, a person can begin to create new perceptions that change old patterns. The healing part of their session helps the body to relax, release tensions, old beliefs, fears and pain, all energy blockages to the normal flow and utilization of energy in the body. Change and healing are a continuous effort and when a person assumes responsibility for improving themselves this allows for much progress in all areas of their life.
Rhys says that that who you are, is your life purpose. Many people have no idea who they are or why they are living this life, but often we begin an awakening process by a small nudge from within. Rhys writes, “Is this all there is? “That little voice in your head just won’t let up. Your life is good. Your job brings in enough money to support you and your family…..but that little voice is still there. This can’t be it…..Isn’t there something more. And it’s been getting louder…the voice doesn’t go away…there’s still a sense that something is missing. Of course that is not all there is…That little voice and the emptiness inside of you, that sense of life passing you by, when you haven’t achieved real happiness yet…this is the BIG WHY? Only when you know the way and are on track with your unique life purpose that drives all your choices and actions in life will success in life be yours….because your life purpose is who you are.” YOU ARE HERE FOR A PURPOSE AND THAT IS TO KNOW YOUR SOUL EXISTENCE AND DESTINY. You are your Core Soul Self your personal inner spiritual essence. With self-awareness you learn what your soul has chosen for you to find in this life and to help you embrace that which refines strengthens and forms you into the person you were born to be. The soul is an undeniable presence that is within us all and is an essential part of our being. This soul energy is your life energy, the force that animates everything you do connecting you to the world. It transcends the physical world, is eternal and is your truest essence or measure of life.”
Rhys realized his own life purpose and what he was meant to do in the world when in 1998 he had a midlife crisis. Rhys always felt that something big was missing and by the time he was 38 he could no longer go on striving for what was not making him happy. He was pursuing inner peace and happiness with Dr. Wayne Dyer and Tony Robbins and had studied psychology, Eastern philosophy, quantum physics, and mind-body health. But there were issues in his marriage and he had chronic sinus, lower back and digestive issues. In his desperation he went back to school enrolling in a three year program at The Institute of Healing Arts and Sciences in Connecticut. He learned to awaken the life force energy he had shut down for so many years denying his true nature. He found his own life profile that led him to teach all who wished to learn that their own truth is infinitely more important than what others tell us to do or what to think was important to him. Rhys has come to realize that his deepest feelings are the words of his soul guiding him in every moment. Suffering led Rhys to find the truth of life: our eternal soul, if listening to it, is our life purpose.
Rhys says that he discovered most of the people he has worked with want three things in their lives…good career good relationships and good health and simply knowing your purpose improves someone’s ability to achieve all three. Your life purpose is not chosen by you, but by your soul. It never changes and is yours for life and when you tap into the energy of your soul- the reality of real life, and not the illusion of the outside world or the expectations of others, your life becomes directed, purposeful, and even magical.
Sheryl agrees with that and writes in her book The Living Spirit, ”Spiritual transformation is necessary to attain life achievements that are not only materially advantageous but are a real reflection of your true Divine Self. Connecting to this inner voice, spirit, soul energy or essence, brings you an innate awareness of how to commit to your educational goals, the people in your life, your hobbies, interests, to nature and the beauty of creation. This ultimately results in a more balanced peaceful proactive state of being as well as more loving interactions with everyone and everything in your life.”
Rhys shares the Five Life Purpose Profiles that you must know if you are to discover your own profile and to have a deep sense of purpose.
1. reative Idealists are highly imaginative thinkers who sometimes self-isolate, feeling safer staying in their inner mental world than engaging with others.
2. Emotional Intelligent Specialists are empathic sensitive and compassionate but sometimes struggle with being overwhelmed and feeling unloved
3. Team Players are loyal supporters who selflessly put others needs before their own, but they can fail to recognize their own strengths and needs.
4. Charismatic Leader-Charmers are energetic dynamic and capable, but they can become distrustful and self-centered in their relationships
5. Knowledgeable Achievers are driven and organized big picture thinkers. They sometimes lose touch with their emotions and push themselves too hard.
Rhys says there are three steps to finding your Profile type.
1. Clarify your purpose and direction in life
2. Increase your vital energy and passion
3. Develop the Courage to live life with no excuses or apologies.
Aligning with your profile enables you to receive the guidance of your soul to connect to others so you never feel separate or isolated…This guidance shows you your true soul mate and supports love in your life. You can understand the important people in your life past and present and the importance of expressing your core qualities in all your relationships..
Knowing the Life Purpose Profile of your children can help you understand and guide them towards their uniqueness and soul aptitudes. Often in childhood your unique core soul qualities what makes you who you are, were rarely seen, heard, or understood by your parents or guardians. From such ignorance or even outright rejection of your deeper self-expression you became wounded at your very core. In your wounded state you vowed against the core qualities that they denied, making a promise to yourself that only the opposite qualities would thrive. We all suffer not from necessarily specific traumas, but from the realization that who we are in our very souls is not welcomed by those who care the most for us, and unconsciously, want us to be more like them than ourselves. Most of one’s insecurities and personal issues begin during this socialization process.
In response to early wounding experiences:
the Creative Idealist will retreat run away or dissociate,
the Charismatic Leader will stay and manipulate or fight:
the Knowledgeable Achiever will manage himself internally to figure out how to be successful and good:
the Team Player will comply and put up with it:
the Emotional Intelligent Specialist will get overwhelmed and cry…
These responses are hardwired into your nervous system leading you to make vows that specifically hide your core soul qualities, creating beliefs about yourself and the world. Once you vow consciously or unconsciously, to see some part of yourself as good or bad, you set up the always or never knee-jerk responses, that drastically limit the pleasure you can experiences in life. The hope is that by knowing your profile you may avoid becoming sick physically emotionally or mentally and honor your true needs, being kind to yourself and others, learning acceptance by realizing people are acting according to their own profile, karma, and personal destiny in life. We then become less negative, less judgmental, and perhaps, the peace and well being that radiates within can also be reflected outward into the world creating energy for our healing and well being. Physical illness is the result of our intense thoughts fears words and actions and the inability to know our specific soul needs and to respond to them while learning to put less stock in the outside world for what is happening to us and gaining awareness that we create our own lives from WITHIN.
Rhys Thomas has shown us that discovering your Life Purpose Profile is a tool towards living your life in alignment to your soul and your physical needs, while once again finding the balance within yourself and the world.
Rhys wrote, “The Rhys Method Life Purpose Profile System offers a doorway to transformation in the consciousness of individuals and societies. It begins with understanding who you are. Once you truly know yourself you can learn to hold and express that self first with those closest to you and then in your career social relationships and greater mission put in the world. Finding and honoring your core soul self, who you truly are, is your life purpose. We are not all here to change the course of an entire race of people or start a new religion or nation. Some of us are here to simply be the best we can be and do unto others as we would have them do unto us. But when each of us becomes aware of our gifts and readily shares them the gross imbalance in power and resources that keeps our world locked in war and injustice will fade into the pages of history.”
Rhys and Sheryl would hope in these challenging times of political turmoil in our nation and world, we all begin to work on improving our understanding of ourselves first, appreciate others and their life purposes without judgment, blame, or any negativity, for it is in allowing, accepting, and evolving in love that we may walk in truth and happiness always.
