What Guides Your Life?
What is the question that inspires your life and fuels your curiosity and wonder?
For me, it's been:
“What is the nature of our uniqueness?”
There has never been nor ever will be someone exactly like you. Have you ever asked yourself why does life go to such ends to make every human so unique, to make each one of us have a unique perspective and expression? Each of us is unique, because each of us has a unique contribution to make. And every single contribution is important.
My question about the nature of our uniqueness inspired my journey, and made me ask “How can we describe what is truly unique in each of us? Is there one unifying theme, movement or dynamic that captures our uniqueness?” My inquiry led me to discover the true nature of the “soul” as the dynamic movement of life and the source of our multifaceted uniqueness. I realized that I am “Judyanning” for the whole time I’m alive on this planet: interacting, trans-acting, responding, moving, and directing myself in ways unique to me, as prescribed by my soul.
"Your soul is your essence, your life force; it guarantees the integrity of your being."
Your soul is your dynamic, moving, ever-changing and evolving essence, yet always true to itself, always maintaining the unique flavour that forms and informs everything that occurs both inside your organism and with your environment: determining everything from how you respond, what you assimilate and how, how your brain works, the behavior of your cells, which emotions are experienced when. Your soul is your essence, your life force; it guarantees the integrity of your being. It is what makes you whole, a unique whole. It is how you move through life.
Our souls are nourished by love, connection, meaning, truth and beauty. We are inwardly moved by the works of true artisans who, through years of devotion, have mastered a discipline that allows them to skillfully extract something timeless, symbolic, universal, supra-existential, out of something material.
That inward movement, that deep nourishment is what we most long for and crave. But we shortchange ourselves; we grab the glamour, the glitter, the superficially pleasing and fall short of the luminous and truly fulfilling. Life in a fast-paced world of instant gratification and quick fixes is taking its toll on our souls, our self esteem, our happiness and satisfaction.
It is only when we, perhaps after multiple disappointments, can let go of the idea of the quick fix, the magic bullet or the instant technique to making our lives and ourselves “better” that we can surrender to the deeper meaning, deeper understanding and presence that lies within our soul.
The question that inspires us is also our unique contribution to the world. Developing our unique talents through the discipline inspired by our question is what creates true self esteem, satisfaction and meaning.
So what question inspires your curiosity? What is the question that has guided your life?
This is a question to contemplate. Keep it in the back of your mind, and try to find a quiet moment or take a walk to discover the central thread that has inspired you to ask, question, read or study – your whole life. Once you know your question, you can use it to motivate you to apply the discipline needed to develop your talents. The only true “mission” in life is the discovery of our unique question and developing our talents so that we can make a valuable and unique contribution to the beauty and love in the world.

Illuminating and revealing the soul
As I approach 70, I’m as impassioned about this question, if not more, than I was a half-century ago. For almost three decades, I’ve had the wonderful opportunity of exploring with individuals to help them discover how their physical, mental and emotional symptoms and processes illuminate and reveal the unique nature of their soul. In the Noumedynamic exploration we teach at MICH, the spiritual dimensions intermingle with the material, lines of divisions dissolve, the veil falls away, and the wonderful is perceived in the ordinary.
With over 250 years of mapping these correspondences through homeopathic remedy provings and clinical results, Homeopathy has been and continues to be a rich resource for my exploration. The provings of Homeopathic remedies provide the full spectrum of unique characteristics from mental and emotional states, interpretations, perspectives, and the particular parts of the body where symptoms and diseases arise. Homeopathy provides precious information for establishing reliable correspondences between different dimensions of our being, and through these correspondences, it points us in the direction of the common and unique ROOT of all the characteristics and attributes that make up our unique flavour: our soul.
Founding MICH allowed us to share the richness of our discoveries about our soul so that everyone can honour their life as a unique expression, acknowledge their uniqueness through our explorations, so they can live out their lives with the originality with which they were conceived and be resourced and charged by their unique question.
If you feel that engaging in holistic health at a deep level is your calling, then don’t miss the opportunity to join our programs.
