Your gut feeling, your primal instinct, your spidey-sense, the quiet voice in your head… when you’ve followed this wisdom, you’ve made great decisions. Am I right?
If you have found any measure of success in life, I bet you can attribute it to following your gut, your instinct, your intuition, in addition to doing what made sense.
But you didn’t learn how to have an inner voice in school, did you?
I didn’t. Well, except for maybe my Improv class at Stanford. Thanks Professor Ryan! 😉
But really, school might have made it harder to hear that intuitive knowing, drowning it out with louder voices of logical, analytics, and rational thinking. Even if you went to design school, you may have found that the structure of classes, labs, and tests left little room or invitation for the muse you were there to tap.
Yet life has proven it to us over and over again, right?
Great ideas arrive in their own timing.
The brain is terrific at solving problems.
But creative innovative ideas come of their own accord, seemingly unbidden.
[Yet below I’m going to challenge that assumption… heehee]
Let me ask you this…
Are you an innovator? Have you had truly unique ideas land in your mind?
And where have your best innovations really been born?
- Have you ever had an idea arrive while you were in the shower, a fun idea that left you scrambling all wet and dripping for a pen and paper to write it down before you forgot it?
- Have you ever had a brilliant idea arrive in that liminal space between waking and sleeping, where you felt you were slipping between the worlds, and catching a glimpse of what is most clear and potent?
- Have you ever stood gazing in awe at a scene of natural beauty, and suddenly felt a big A-HA come over you like a wind, gifting you with a realization or idea that was grander than anything you ever could have thought before?
YES. I bet you have.
Now here’s what really intrigues me.
People talk about these moments as if they are completely mysterious, unbidden, uncontrollable.
But I don’t believe that.
In fact, since I accidentally went from a litigation attorney to a highly-intuitive person in 2000, I’ve been mapping this stuff out.
And I’ve been helping “normal” smart professional folks to cultivate their own intuitive connection, so they can truly channel their genius.
Of course there is a system for tapping intuitive power – for Channeling Your Genius.
So why aren’t people doing this stuff?
Maybe it’s because we’ve forgotten what our Genius really is.
So I created a cool Assessment to show you What Type of Genius are you. You can take that here.
It’s not a total mystery. We’ve just forgotten.
Truth is, shamanicly-inclined indigenous cultures made a science of tapping the mystery of the muse long ago. This is not new information. I’ve just been reorganizing the essential steps for my own modern use, and to share with other modern folk.
I call it the art of incarnating into your Genius.
It’s not being stuck in the head. It’s allowing Genius to flow through you. It’s walking the talk of your own wisdom.
I don’t think there’s any higher Calling than to become your own Genius Incarnate.
If you agree, I invite you to take this cool quiz/assessment I created. It’s new.
It will show you what kind of Genius you have.
I believe that Genius is sourced mystically, whether you wait around for it to come and grab you, or whether you intelligently collaborate with the mystic source itself, creating systems and ways to tap those great ideas at will.
In fact, the definition of Genius springs from the Roman and Greek concepts of the Genii – our benevolent personal guardian spirit – coming through us to do great things.
Makes me wonder if the accelerated periods of cultural advancement in the Greek and Roman times were perhaps due to the fact that the most tuned-in leaders of the time were striving to connect with their Genii – downloading Genius consciously, and channeling it for change.
I don’t know about you, but this Genii thing has been my experience. Moments of Genius feel like something bigger than me, a spirit of wisdom, is flowing through me, and gracing me with great ideas and clarity.
Do you know what I’m talking about here?
So why the heck are we not talking about this more?
Why is it relegated to woo-woo and religion and kind of brushed under the carpet?
I’m not sure why we’re not talking about this sourcing thing. It seems like the best stuff ever to me.
Even Elizabeth Gilbert, in her book Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear (great read BTW) talks about the arrival of the Idea as a magical mysterious moment that cannot be predicted, controlled, or invited.
But as I was reading that in her book I found myself getting all fired up. I was wigging and jumping around, all frustrated like a kid in a class who knows an answer that’s not even in the textbook yet.
“Teacher, Teacher!!!” I wanted to scream…
I wanted to say “YES we CAN invite that moment. YES we can increase the frequency of a-ha moments. YES we are stewards of sourcing these great ideas – not just hapless receivers waiting for the miracle to take us!!!”
My journey from lawyer to intuitive has been all about mapping this path, about helping others tap that source without feeling crazy, about bridging the worlds in a way that is non-religious and ultimately accessible.
Oh crap, I thought. I need to write a book. I need to teach this stuff.
Because apparently, people don’t know. And they need to.
So take my Genius Incarnate Assessment if you’re curious what kind of Genius you are.
Because I’m testing you right now. If you care about your Genius, I figure you’ll want to take this Assessment. And if you take this assessment, you’ll get goodies from me to help you open your can of whoop-ass genius in this world.
See, you guys, I dream of a world where our leaders are not clueless, hapless sods hoping and praying for an answer to come down from the heavens.
I want to participate in giving conscious leaders, innovators, and creative types the tools to march right up to the heavens, create some intelligent connections and systems for communication, and then download the best inspired ideas directly from that source, to create the dang solutions to the world’s problems – swiftly, elegantly, miraculously.
I want to collaborate with a community of leaders who all share this devotion to sourcing great ideas that will do good in the world. I want to see leaders aligned with the highest intentions, and therefore unafraid to partner with the highest sources of intelligence.
I am willing to devote my life to our smartest people tapping their truest brilliance, and then embodying their gifts fully to become Genius Incarnate.
So get ready. I’m creating something.
And if you want to be a part of this, then go take this assessment I created.
Genius Assessment is here – it will take 10 min to find out what kind of Genius you are.
This is like the BETA version.
But it will show you what kind of Genius you are.
Creative? Visionary? Integrative? Carnal?
You have genius. Let’s find out what kind.
And I figure those who take this Assessment are the early adopters. So you’ll get some extra love from me.
Because I’m here for the action-takers.
I’m here for the innovators.
I’m here for those who are ready to KNOW their Genius, and to LIVE it in the world as Genius Incarnate.
This world needs us channeling our genius now.
What do you think about all this? Leave me a comment below…
I was supposed to be holding it all together. But I had tears streaming down my face, even though I was co-leading a meditation event. I was at that snotty messy sobbing phase, too. It was not just the pretty tear-trickle kind of crying appropriate for awakened folks in meditation. It was the “OMG I’m losing it in front of these 60 people” kind of crying. I was upset about something that had happened right before the event. And of course breath work brought it right to the surface. And my choice in that moment was to let it come. So I was broken open up there on the little stage. And I must admit, most people didn’t notice. They were involved in their own journey.
But there was one guy, sitting solid in himself, grounded in his hips, strong and awake and present and kind. And he was gazing back at me with soft gentle laser blue eyes, and a relaxed face. He grinned softly in such a way that I melted. I knew I was safe. It was his presence. It was big. Like even from 20 feet away, he was holding me in a big brother embrace that was completely safe.
That is my first memory of really meeting Jim Benson.
Yes, I’d heard about him. He was a good friend of most of my best friends. He’d been traveling the world teaching sacred sexuality, and studying sacred relationship arts, for years. He was known to be an entertaining teacher and a goof – kinda like me.
But that moment, when his masculine totally held my feminine in my vulnerable state – that was when I really MET Jim Benson.
Years later, I was present for the birth of his child, as his wife Jess and I had become really close friends. And I got to see Jim show up as a new father, broken open and vulnerable, and still strong and so so kind through the entire transformative experience.
Yes, I’ve seen Jim Benson walk his talk for many years.
And if you’ve ever tried to study sexuality, you know how freakin’ rare it is to find someone who is an expert in that area, and still holds deep integrity. I mean, this guy is precious.
Here are a few things I’ve learned from Jim Benson:
- Men care as much as women do about love, sex, and being true.
- Integrity in male sexuality is not just possible – it’s the highest expression of male power.
- Men can have multiple orgasms too- they just need to learn how.
Now that I’m a single gal, meeting and dating guys, I have more appreciation than ever for Jim’s gifts in this world. I really feel for my brothers out there. What a ton of heavy responsibility and pressure you all carry. And I want more men to have this info, so I can date them. Hehe.
If you are a man who wants to learn from Jim, or if you’re a woman who wants to encourage a man to learn from Jim, there’s a great opportunity coming up.
Power and wisdom manifests when a group of conscious men gathers with a clear intention.
I wish I was a guy so I could go. That’s how good this thing is.
Since I’m a gal, please go for me. 🙂
The great price ends soon, and you should grab a spot while it’s still available. 🙂
Let me know how it goes for you.
And let him know that Mellissa Seaman sent you. Cause he loves the people I send!
One of my clients, Jennifer, was a financial strategist. I mean she is a super smarty-pants person. She was living in this amazing condo with cream colored furniture and carpet. Classy. She never had an issue with money.
Then, one day, she felt a Calling. She began taking energy healing classes and developed her gift. She went from Reiki to Quantum to Spiritual Touch to other juju stuff that works like a charm. Super powerful gifted healer. She kept her day job, while she developed her biz.
But at the same time as her intuitive gifts developed, her money dropped fast.
Why was it so hard to be intuitive, spiritual, and gifted – and still have wealth?
She was studying marketing. She had a coach (not me at that time BTW ;). In fact, she spent close to $100,000 of her savings trying to learn how to market her energy healing work. And none of it worked for her.
It was almost like something was “against” her doing this work…
Now, I must say, this was really ringing a bell for me. When I first had my intuitive awakening, after having been a Catholic lawyer for all my life, my first inclination was to create a biz plan for this new way of being. But I felt blocked. I couldn’t do it. And later, when I finally studied marketing, I was amazed at how hard “business” had become even though I’d previously been a business attorney!
Anyway, back to Jennifer…
She exhibited many of the same blocks that I see over and over with Intuitive people – even the smartest most powerful intuitive people! She resisted doing the work to become known in the world. People complained about her prices (even though she was charging way too little). She would strangely sabotage her own efforts to make money. And she was really struggling to draw clients.
Like I had been, she was embarrassed. I mean, here she was a financial business person and no matter how much she learned, how much she tried, how many strategies she implemented, she could not find success.
When she came to me, she was deeply suspicious. But her gut told her to try me – to trust me. I told her about my own story, and how embarrassed I had felt when I had to integrate the intuitive world with the biz strategy. She listened and laughed with me, knowing she was not alone. And then she trusted me.
And I took her through a series of clearings and trainings that get intuitive people unstuck in business.
And it worked.
Actually, it pretty much always works.
And it’s the same dang sequence of clearings and trainings.
It’s kinda like I cracked the code of the main blocks intuitives need to clear in order to make moolah.
Can I tell you about a resource I have for you now? And then give you a gift of a whopper deal?
See, I put these things together in a home-study course – the main clearings and tools and tricks that intuitives need to pass through in order to make money.
It’s my Mystery School for Business Success, and instead of charging $2,000 for it like my coach told me to, I sold it for $797. And these targeted video clearings and trainings – the magic keys – have been changing lives.
Want it? For like half price? OK. Today only.
See, I just moved into a magical forest house (seriously), and I’m feeling like sharing the love.
So just for like 24 hours – you can get $400 off this course, using the coupon code MAGICAL, making it a measly $397 for the most essential clearings and training you need to get past these blocks as an intuitive person.
Time is running out, though.
So if you want this amazing deal…
PS If you try 3 clearings, and don’t feel the results, I’ll totally give you your money back. This stuff works. So there’s no risk to you! >>>Yay! Go get it! It’s MAGICAL!<<<
So many people are encouraging me to create a program to serve the super-sensitive gifted Dragon Kids – the Soul Gifted Kids that we know need our help to grow up to be leaders and innovators as is their destiny.
Because of all this support, I’m going for it! With your support, I’m creating a program for Dragon Kids and the Adults who Love Them! Yay!
I don’t want to create something that won’t help. I really want to give this community what is most useful.
So many of you have written that you WANT to help the sensitive gifted kids get the simple clear support they need to avoid feeling devastated, judged, and put down.
I really appreciate you being on this journey with me!
P.S. – This program is shaping up so beautifully with feedback from lots of you amazing folks. I just need these few targeted questions answered, and then I can invite you to participate in this project at a couple of different levels – look for my post on this Friday or Saturday with the invite!
I sent out an email a few days ago on the topic of our sensitive gifted kids, and invited responses…
The community responded! And here’s some of the collective wisdom on the topic, all of which is going into creating the program for the Dragon Kids and their parents, which I’m still putting the finishing touches on…
Here’s what we say…
- creating space for kids to thrive and feel “free” with their gifts
- showing the parents that it’s all OK and teaching them how to hold that space
- teaching kids to be respectful of other kids’ gifts too
- a foundational reinvention of the current *cultural* narrative.
- protection while they’re small – like a walled garden
- respect for nature, for self, for others
- healing the shame of being different
- teaching them resilience
- teaching parents to tune in with all realms of existence
- energetic awareness as part of essential education
- Validation of their words and needs and songs and emotions
- teach them to listen to their ‘good sense’ and what their feeling body is saying rather than their mind
- a Hogwarts school for sensitive intuitive kids
- affirmation that they are loved and we think they are awesome
- rituals and sacred space. Kids and adults need both of those to thrive. A safe place to explore and understand the invisible world.
- Parenting kids to succeed in this world while keeping their spiritual gifts and abilities intact
And here are some snippets from the incredible array of passionate stories I received back from parents and others who care about our Dragon kids, the soul-gifted sensitive little ones…
“I’m a former magical kid myself. My light got shuttered a long time ago and I work a corporate job to make lots of $$$ that I dislike in order to have enough $$$ to create a shield wall for my kids. But I know I am setting a bad example by doing this.
“Until I learn how to recover and rekindle and shield my own light, my own energy – I’m not going to do a very good job of teaching my kids. This is what I want to learn for myself, so I can teach them how to do it. So much of parenting is leading by example, as you know.”
“I think the best way that we can support these kids is to be active role models and mentors for them. So, they can see what weird magic adults look like, sound like, act like and are successful like…”
“I was wearing my 7-chakra pendant the other day and a 12-year old boy pointed at it and said, “cool.” And English is not his first language.”
“I cried after I read your email because it was a relief to realize there is someone else who is deeply affected and concerned about the fact that sensitive children are simply not valued or understood. Traditional schools do not recognize or nurture them, and humanity is missing out big time because of society’s failure to notice and take action to foster the growth of these gifted children.”
“Your message left me in tears, which are still lining my eyes as I try to type. For what exactly, I’m not sure. Maybe it stirs memories of being bullied at that age myself. Or just knowing the heartache that a fellow sensitive soul must have felt being cut down like that. It’s not fair! It’s not right!”“I also saw things that others didn’t see as a child. I had energy friends that I now recognize were/are pure, living prana but they played with me. Here I am 56 years later just finding out that I still have access on that level. Often times, I was shamed for being different and shut down my life force energy just like that little boy. I saw, I felt, I smelled, I encountered what others did not and on some level it has made me a hermit and a loner because I rarely met people I could share it all with.”
“I cry with you. I was a kid who got shut down with seeing colors, playing in the trees with fairies, and then they were all gone…it is real, the invisible world, that they are not crazy, they have a gift and a secret world that others are missing out on.”
“I get it. It was moving to me and now I’m all emotional. I have a 7 year old and I worry about this exact thing. I was a weirdo kid lol and I see my son, he’s a gentle, gifted little guy. I also noticed many of the kids I see at this age are as well. I feel like they’re going to change the world but they do need help and guidance.”
“I was born and raised in Croatia, where everything was not so readily available, although we did not miss anything, and were kids are loved and imagination was encouraged. Living in America since 89, in today’s Internet and cell phones world I am worried too.”
“I have a toddler daughter at home. I’m first starting with allowing myself to play, imagine, and be weird, because she’ll be watching me. I notice and make an effort to drop my guards, normalcy, some fears, and gosh – even gender bias – to allow her to play, make a mess, to be wild, to let her be.”
“We need to hold space for the children, lift them when they fall. But I do think adults need this permission and nudge to be playful and weird too.”
“As a grandmother of 4 fascinating little (and not so little) ones, I’ve observed similar incidents and also the painful assimilation of the magical kids into “normalcy”. However, I do see that, like you and me, the magic will return to these kids. We need to do what we can to support them by taking the stands you suggest.”
“We can do so much damage to dreamers, creatives, empaths, and others who are in any way more fragile than the world generally likes. I want to punch someone every time I hear the phrase “develop a thick skin” or “stop being so sensitive.” What if, instead, we honored that sensitivity? What if we created spaces where imagination and stories and thinking in new ways were encouraged rather than shot down? What if we saw this kind of sensitivity as a strength rather than a weakness?”
“My son was very emotional at school, so I went and picked him up. I asked him why and what was the matter. He couldn’t give a specific reason so I pressed. From his little 6 year old mouth he said that he didn’t feel important or special, and disappointed in himself for not playing a larger role in the world to make it better. He said he felt that he’s a leader but nobody at school gets it and that he isn’t able to freely express himself there and be who he is. I was so astonished and proud at the same time!!! What 6 year old thinks this way????? …during the election/campaign time, he was very interested in politics. But he said to me one night when I was putting him to bed, “Mom, you know there is a new planet forming, planet love. On planet love there will be no need for politicians and presidents because everyone will just do the right thing. Another astonishing and proud mommy moment. I think some of these kids may know a thing or two more than we’d give them credit for.”
Your responses – ALL of your responses – moved me. They moved me when I received them, and I’m crying as I’m assembling this array here. Thank you so much for sharing this passion, this devotion, and this movement.
I’m creating a program full of clearing and kid-friendly techniques that I’ve used to help these kids immediately and profoundly. I’ll send out more info later this week. But if you want to be a part of this, please comment below with “I’m interested.” Thank you.
Not sure if you saw my blog post the other day, that told the story about the kid in the park (check that out here). But since then, I’ve had over 50 passionate responses about it from people all over the world. And I’m obsessed – in a really good way – and ready to create a solution that can serve sensitive kids and their parents.
Why? Lemme tell ya…
I look around this world, with the issues that need solved now, and I realize three things…
1. I care most about helping soul-gifted intuitively-guided innovative leaders make the impact they came here to make.
And our future leaders are struggling right now – as highly sensitive misunderstood genius kids who need our help.
I call them Soul Gifted Kids. I call them Dragon Kids.
They have more energy than they are “supposed” to. And they are more sensitive and energy aware than this culture understands. But we get it. Because we were that kid! And now we are leaders…
2. I want to help YOU – as someone who is an innovative leader NOW, and as a leader-parent!
Do you realize that as a conscious parent, you ARE an innovative leader?
You parent consciously. You know how precious that is?
Your kids are sensitive intense creatives (like you – duh) and they already don’t “fit in.”
Your brilliant kids have different experiences and needs than other kids.
As my dad loves to say, “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.”
Well, there’s some truth to it. Your kids are smart, sensitive, and plugged in.
And yes, that is “different.”
These kids may be seen as “overly sensitive, over imaginative, overly energized” to some people, but these same Gifts will also make them into the leaders we have been waiting for, if we can just get them to adulthood with their dignity intact.
Your role as an innovative parent is key to their making it to their own confident adult leadership.
And you’ve been telling me through passionate tear-stained emails that you want this more than any other purpose in your life.
3. Our Soul Gifted sensitive Kids need special supportive training to understand and use their gifts. They need this empowerment to avoid being judged, brutalized by the world, and labeled as broken.
In a culture that is post-indigenous, built on technology and patriarchy, on efficiency and capitalism, our sensitive Soul Gifted Kids need some extra tools to grow to be leaders.
- Tools to hold their own energy intact, and not be overwhelmed by outer energies.
- Tools to turn their problem areas into superpowers.
- Tools to ground deeply into the magic that is theirs to claim.
I mean why do you think Harry Potter books are so dang popular?
It’s because right now, there are lots of magical kids who really do need a wizard school.
So, with your help, I’m creating one – a school for parents and kids – a home study way that doesn’t take too much time, that is fun, that builds better relationships.
Hey, I’ve helped a lot of kids learn about their magic. I’ve given them direct clearings. And it really evens them out.
I’ve helped kids who seemed autistic suddenly not seem so.
I’ve helped kids who could not sleep a wink to finally be able to ground and rest.
I’ve helped kids who wouldn’t look me in the eye to come to the place where they wanted to hug me and others they know and love.
I’ve done this for clients, for family, for friends. And it comes very naturally. I see and understand these kids. And I can clear them, show them fun tools, and explain it all to their folks.
It’s too important. I need to find a way to share this widely.
I am creating something for your soul-gifted kids. I can’t tell you all about it just yet, but I could use your help developing it – making sure that I provide the best help for these magical kiddos…
So if this moves you, please comment below me and share with me the single biggest challenge your beloved gifted amped up dragon kids face…
Because your input right now will help me design the perfect resources, games, and support for these kids we love.
Just comment below and talk to me about it…
I will read your comment, send clearing and blessings for the kid!
P.S. I am also aware that sometimes these soul-gifted kids’ behavior can be super challenging to a world that is not designed for them. I know that many (like kids in my own family) can be diagnosed or mis-diagnosed, judged, bullied, restrained, and basically shut-down. It can be brutal. It can be also really hard to parent these dragon kids. So I want to acknowledge you for facing this, for sharing it with me, and for talking about it. Whether you’re a parent, a grandparent, or a god-parent of one of these special gifted kids, I just want to thank you for loving them, for holding your patience, and for seeing the potential of their greatness and supporting that. Please do comment below and tell me about how it is for you, and for the kid you love. This will help me help you further. Thank you!
