What is a core value? Your core value is the virtue that you live your life by.

It is the energy, the principle, the ideal that you build your life around. Your core value may be love, or truth, justice, beauty, loving kindness. Whatever it is, it is the divine message, the divine calling of your soul.

Most people have lost connection with their core value, and, as a result, they often find themselves unhappy in their work, their relationships and their life.

Your core value is infused with an enormous presence of energy that you can use to create your life and clear away obstacles, hindrances, and fears. Your core value is the virtue that is the foundation of your soul’s purpose. It is a messenger of wisdom, intuition, guidance, forbearance, resilience, health, and love.

When you are consciously connected to your core value, you are automatically connected to the Divine, to the Source, to the Power House of Energy.

How do you connect with your core value, the virtue of your soul?

Here are the steps I lead you through in the accompanying video:

  1. Begin with closing your eyes, accessing the Silent Watcher, the mini-me.
  2. Now, from the Silent Watcher watch your breath, observe your thoughts, your feelings, your body.
  3. Now, take your mind from the neutral stance of your Silent Watcher and place your attention in your belly. In your belly is a golden globe of light. You are just sitting in this beautiful globe of light, so peaceful, so calm.
  4. Now, from the Silent Watcher, ask this globe of light (this you) sitting in your belly, “What is my core value? What is the virtue that means more to me than anything? What value do I live by?”

Maybe this is something that you have forgotten about. Maybe it is something you no longer live by, but it is still there, waiting for you to resurrect its power.

As you sit quietly, observing yourself in your globe of light, listen. You might hear a word, you might hear a sentence. Connect deeply into this golden orb in your belly. What do you hear?

When I first did this, what I heard was “love.” Love is my core value. And then I heard “love no matter what.” The ante was upped! And I can tell you, living from this place, my “love no matter what” has changed my relationships. It has changed my world. It has changed my life.

Your core value is the foundation of your soul. And when you connect with your core value, you are living in a quantum field of creation. You are spiritually connected and automatically living a fulfilled, purposeful life.
