Casey: Remember: You’re Good, You’re Whole
Casey Berglund: [00:00:00] Hello my friend. It's Casey Berg here, host of the Purpose Map Podcast, and founder of Worthy and Well, and something is coming through me right now for you, a message. I'm not totally sure what it is, though. The theme feels quite clear. I just pulled a card from the mystical shaman Oracle deck and the one that popped outta the deck is in complete alignment with the theme of this message that is here for you.
So I'm actually gonna start by, reading the reading from this card. So I pulled the Luminous Warrior, here's the message for you, the essence. The luminous Warrior has no enemies in this world or the next. He is impeccable in Word. Indeed. He focuses on his light rather than on what hides in the dark. He casts no shadow.
He is as radiant as [00:01:00] the son and can transform his most terrible enemy into his ally. His power comes not from the sword, but from speaking his truth at all costs. The invitation. The Luminous Warrior reminds you it is important to focus on your power, wisdom, and beauty. Do not be seduced by what seems wrong with you or with the world.
Remember that intention follows attention, so focus on your positive traits. Feed your light with more light until you feel truly empowered. Then there will be little need for action as you resolve all situations from within. Okay, so this message. Today was inspired by a number of different things. One, my sister-in-law, bell Plain, who's an incredible musician, has a song that's called, are We Good?
And it's not necessarily about this theme that I'm about to share with you, but it did inspire this message of, you're good, you're [00:02:00] all good. Don't worry. You're good. We're good, we're good here. You're whole, you're not broken. You're. The second thing that inspired this message coming through is actually one of our clients in the next level Purpose 30 day intensive.
In our last session, she said, you know, I think it's time to put my attention onto my wholeness. Not on my healing slash brokenness. It's time for me to move away from running through all of the things about my past that I need to work on in therapy, in, you know, brain reprogramming in all these different healing modalities.
It's time for me to just pause and set that to the side for a moment and actually focus on my whole. And this Luminous Warrior card I feel sends this same message. There's a point in [00:03:00] your journey if you're here, you've probably already done quite a lot of work. If you're aligned with my energy and if you're aligned with my message, and if you're here and intrigued by even our programs that worthy and well, you are committed to self-discovery and growth.
This isn't your first rodeo. You've done some things already. You've maybe gone to therapy, you've maybe already tried breath work. You've maybe done some other healing modality, yoga, meditation. Perhaps you've been to a sound bath or something like that, or maybe you've done, I'm not sure, some form of coaching in the past.
It's not your first rodeo. You've been around the block. You're aware that your childhood patterns impact how you show up as an adult. You're aware that when you're triggered, it's maybe showing. Somewhere where there's an ask for healing. You are open to seeing yourself clearly. You've done some work.
You've probably had [00:04:00] your focus on reprogramming deconditioning, looking at yourself clearly, taking a peek at your wounds, looking at your pain points, perhaps even attuning to the contraction in your body as best you. There comes a point where you get to pause and you get to actually focus on your wholeness, on your light, on your positive attributes.
You get to expand those attributes and shine them forward. When I think about the pathway that I guide clients through in worthy and well, step one is really receiving this energetic activation, this experience of wholeness. When I talk about your next level purpose, it may sound like there's something out there for you to like step into, and I don't actually mean it that way.
Your next level purpose is just you allowing yourself to remember who you really are. [00:05:00] And to act in alignment. Your next level purpose is about your next level beingness, which is actually just about your next level of remembering, your next level of knowing that you are a divine being in this human form and as a divine being in this human form.
You are not broken. You are whole. You are expansion. Expansion is your true nature. Those are the words of Yogi v Vatu, my teacher. At some point we need to experience the truth of that higher level of consciousness, the truth of that higher level of awareness. The point of all the healing stuff is for you to be free, for you to experience joy, for you to experience expansion, and when you get to tap into that, Maybe you tap into it on your own.
Maybe you, have support through religion, through a spiritual practice, through a community. Maybe you do something like join the next level, purpose 30 day [00:06:00] Intensive. The purpose of that is to give you this like, experience of being seen in your wholeness. It's about taking the focus off of what's wrong and off of where you feel insecure and wounded.
And of course we have compassion for all of those parts, those tender spots as humans show up in the context of any sort of transformational opportunity. Of course, they show up, we hold space for them, but that's not where the focus is. The focus is on your wholeness, on your bigness. You get to feel big and whole and happy and joyful, af and free, and that's what I wanna hold for.
This message today is important because in a world where it's very powerful to get sucked into the drama of the pain, it's important to remember that there is light, that there's light within [00:07:00] you, that there's light within the people around you, within the communities that you're part of, and within the collective.
If we just go around talking to each other about how fucked up the world, You know how it's all burning to the ground. Energy flows where attention goes. And I don't mean that in a bypassing sort of way. I just mean it in the way of, let's remember to acknowledge the truth that we are divine beings and we are already whole.
There's nothing wrong with you. You're good.
There's something else that wants to come.
Mm. One of the teachings that I integrate into my work comes from IPEC Coaching, and it's called Energy Leadership. I spoke about it briefly in the episode with Emily Fraser on how to trust your body even with a chronic illness. There's a part where I talk about seven levels of energy very briefly, and specifically mention how level one and [00:08:00] two energy.
Are the energies that create, a catabolic effect from an embodied perspective. They create constriction or tension or tightness in the body. Level one energy is characterized by the thoughts of the victim mentality, the feeling of apathy and the behavior of lethargy. When I witness someone experiencing level one energy in a coaching call, live with them, what I witness in their bodies is they shrink, they get.
Level one energy is where we hold shame. the root of shame is this experience of I'm not enough or I'm too much. And if you're a human, you have that experience. You know, maybe unless there's some sort of, mental diagnoses. But, if you're a human, You likely have the experience of shame or have had it, or have experienced it in triggered moments.
That is a sign of level one energy. Level two. Energy is this experience of, thinking in a way that's [00:09:00] aligned with conflict, feeling, anger, and the behavior being, defiance. So maybe blaming the other or creating a us versus them mentality. These two levels of energy. Often trauma response. So you who's done a lot of healing, likely you've been looking at where level one and two energy shows up in your life and good job.
Like that's a really, really important part of the process is to actually look at yourself, feel into the discomfort of that, feel the contraction in your body all the way through, bring a compassion and a care and a kindness to those difficulties, to that level of. The thing you need to know about level one and two energy is again, that they are catabolic, meaning that they will deplete you.
They will make you feel fatigued and tired. And this is part of why, when we're so focused on healing, it can be exhausting. So even if. Let's say there's no [00:10:00] such thing as being done healing, although I believe that there is such thing as being done healing, but let's say there's not, even if there's no such thing as being done healing, it is important on your healing journey to take a break from putting so much focus on the level one and two.
It is really important on any journey to be able to take a pause and remember that actually your true nature is a higher level of energy. So if we look at the other end of the spectrum, level six, energy feels expansive. It feels anabolic, it feels, it feels free. Level six energy creates a sense of trust where all you see is opportunities where everyone's winning.
Even level five, there's a win-win approach. There's a sense of purpose there. There's a feeling like, you know what's good for me is also good for you. It's like we can see [00:11:00] from a higher level of a higher level perspective. When you get to experience level five and level six, and then maybe even level seven, you get to experience joy and absolute passion.
It's important to tap into those energies. It's important to have spaces and places, and even programs on your transformational journey offers where the facilitator or the leader can hold space for that high level of joyous. Sometimes it's easier to find safe spaces to, well, the words that are coming through.
It's like bitch and complain or look at what's wrong. Sometimes it's harder to find spaces where you can really step into your bigness and your power, and there can be this beautiful, loving energy around that, and you create safety in your system that it's okay to feel. There's this weird thing that's happens and especially I think has happened [00:12:00] in the last couple of years with the acknowledgement of the suffering in the world where when people are, are doing well or feeling good, they almost feel embarrassed to say it, or there's like a guilt or shame around acknowledging the expansiveness, the way things are in flow, the way that their energy is aligned.
I think we need more of that energy flows where attention goes. Remember to put attention back onto your divine nature. It's like your, the pure part of your childlike nature, the pure part of your childlike nature is joyous and passionate and playful and fun and free. Of course, we can look at the wounded part of the child, which is the part that maybe brings up that level one and level two energy.
But also the pure part of your inner child is free, and as an adult there's nothing more magnetic than seeing another [00:13:00] adult who is free, who is open, who smiles and laughs, and experiences passion and joy. You get to feel that too. So I'm gonna bring this home here. Maybe even circling back to this Luminous Warrior card.
The essence of it being remember to focus on your power and your wisdom and your beauty. Remember to see the light and pay attention to the light. Your next level purpose is you just stepping into that true nature, that remembering of who you be and getting an experience of how your purpose, your purpose is, just your being.
It's just what happens naturally when you're not even trying, but you're experiencing those higher levels of energy.
So again, the Luminous Warrior reminds you it's important to focus on your power, wisdom, and beauty. Do not be seduced by what seems wrong with you or with the world. Remember that intention follows attention, so focus on your positive traits. Feel feed your light with [00:14:00] more light until you feel truly empowered.
Then there will be little need for action as you resolve all situations from within. When you're truly living out your next level purpose, it's actually not a big deal to, you don't have to do a lot. You just get to like, quick little story. When I took three weeks off and decided to drive to Austin, Texas and back, the biggest wisdom that I received on that journey was a reminder to myself that my being is the power.
My being is love. I bring that everywhere I go without even trying. And on that journey, I met so many people, made so many strangers, my friend. Those moments where I had a significant conversation with someone, even if it was short, even if it was like, I don't know, in a brewery one night, like almost everyone I interacted with reflected back to me or recognized me in a way where they [00:15:00] said, wow, I just felt inspired by your presence.
I felt excited to actually take action on that thing that I've been sitting on. I just felt like you shared such care and authenticity. You made me feel so comfort. And I was reminded in that moment that that is my purpose. It has nothing to do with being a coach, being a, you know, in the past, a dietician, you know, being an embodiment guide.
Like all of those elements are tools that I use in my work to contribute to be of service. But the real medicine is who I. And it's the same with you, the real medicine. Your true next level purpose is really your next level being, which is really just remembering your natural state of expansion. Let me know what came up for you in this episode.
