“Divine confidence is a different kind of confidence: it can never be stripped away. It’s strange that we go endlessly searching for it—trying to find it through our accomplishments and capabilities—because it doesn’t come from being good at something or possessing vast amounts of information or having “a big bank account. It can never be found “out there,” because it is within you—a part of your sacred DNA.
So when you know yourself, when you know at the core of your being that you’re here for a greater purpose, divine confidence is present and palpable. And when your cord of connection with the infinite is acknowledged, honored, and nurtured, the fearlessness and faith-filled trust that make up divine confidence run coursing through your veins.
Truth is the key to unlocking the door to divine confidence. This truth is not a concept that you can understand with your mind. It is not something that can be grasped when filtered through the human ego structure. No, it’s a truth that is more humble than that, a truth that can be felt only when you get out of your head and into your heart. When you’re blind to this truth, you’re left to the limited power of your human will, which—as we all can attest—will not come through for you when you most need it.
This truth has been spoken about since the beginning of time. It has been the secret superpower for those who “stand tall in the certainty and faith that they have a divine purpose on this planet. Most of our great leaders and sages have come to this truth, rising above the great cover-up of the human ego.
So what is this truth? What will give us access to this profound and all-powerful force? Why are we here? The answer to this question may be the very cornerstone of this book and the pulsing heart of my work. We are here for one reason and one reason only: to get closer to the divine force that governs the universe, whether you call that force God, Spirit, Love, or Higher Power.”
