This is how a typical certification program is created:
An amazing, empowered being feels a deep calling to make a difference in the world.
They search and search, learning from others who have gone before them. They spend years struggling themselves, until they discover the "secret" that no one else knew to tell them, but that once they figured out, made everything click into place in their life.
They start sharing this "secret" with their clients, whose lives also improve (although not as drastically as being #1's.)
They decide this is what they are here to share and sit down to write a long outline of how to get from point A (knowing nothing about this amazing new modality) to point Z (being a master of said modality).
They slap a huge price tag on it and call it a day. People are drawn to being #1's energy and sign up in droves. Soon, everyone and their mother is talking about getting certified in this thing.
And to get certified, they have to follow all the rules. There's no freedom to move things around as their inner guidance calls to them, because they've been warned/taught that if they do that, it won't work. Step by step, remember?
But here's the thing NO ONE seems to know: This modality is being #1's soul mission and that's why it brought them bliss.
Anyone who learns this step by step method and then begins to practice it with clients is blocking their own unique gifts from dropping down onto the scene.
End of story.
All the beautiful beings who have been certified now begin to feel bitter (which they hide deep inside because they have bills to pay and clients to attract) because they thought having this certification was going to make them feel fulfilled as they lit up their lives and the lives of their clients, but the opposite happens. They feel like something is missing, because it is (*cough *cough soul mission anyone?)
But these beautiful beings don't know THAT'S why they're feeling bitter - they think it's because this certification works for everyone else but not for them. Yup - they think it's their fault and there's something wrong with them - which makes them feel even less magical and worthy of bringing through their own inner genius, completing the plugging up of the divine works of the universe.
Think about it - why did all these beautiful beings want to get certified in this modality? It's because they didn't believe fully in themselves and that THEY might have something magical to uncover and share with the world.
And when you're embarking on a new endeavor from that energy of believing someone else has all the magic (not you) and the best you can do is get them to tell you how they did it - you are (whether consciously or unconsciously) creating a situation where you're blocking your beautiful gifts and your unique soul mission.
