There was a study done recently at Harvard called the Zero Point Study. It was a ten-year study on genius. The genius capacity is demonstrated by certain individuals who bring forth great ideas, transformational thinking, movement, social change, and innovative thinking that transform and transpose us to a whole new level of living.
What is this capacity?
The researchers began to define genius as the number of modalities with which a person takes in information, synthesizes that information, and makes use of it. So you and I have many modalities with which we can take in information — aurally, visually, kinesthetically, intuitively, etc…
But what they discovered was that 99% of babies—99% of you and me–operate at a genius capacity during the first eighteen months of life. By the time we are five, only 22% of us are still operating at our genius capacity. By the time we are twenty, only 2% of us are still operating at a genius capacity. What happens to us?
What they discovered in their research is that the shutting down of our capacities – the distancing of ourselves from our Genius Self – happens through the learned voice of internal judgment.
We begin to doubt ourselves. We begin to question ourselves. We begin to look into other peoples’ eyes for who we are, for approval, for permission. The truth is, this is no way to live. We were born for greatness. Each of us was born as a completely unique expression of the One, with free will to explore all dimensions of experience. The Source is learning through us, as us. We are called to our true nature, our greatness, through the anchoring of the energies of the Soul, in the form of a completely unique expression of that Soul that has never existed before and will never exist again. This life is your one chance to express that uniqueness in this particular form. Don’t let it slip away. Your longings and your discontent, your highest dreams for your life, are messages from Spirit that guide you toward the fulfillment of your highest potential.
You have genius capacities in you. Today, connect to that genius. Trust your genius, and believe in the power of your dreams.
