I recently had the honor of sitting down with Oprah Winfrey for a face-to-face, hour-long interview for her Emmy Award-Winning Series, Super Soul Sunday. Let me tell you, she is as magnetic a force in real-life as she appears in the media and her commitment to inspiring individuals into their greatness is compelling. Never before in all the interviews I’ve done have I ever felt seen, heard and embraced for who I am. It is this quality – this presence – that I believe has propelled her to be the Divine vehicle that she is today.
Oprah is one of those rare human beings who simply by being in her company for a few moments has enough potential to propel the smallest of comets into a universe of infinite possibilities. What is it that makes her who she is? Is it her relate-ability, her success or her genuine desire to be a conduit for the greater good?
From her humble beginnings in Mississippi to her reign as the queen of daytime television and the creation of her OWN cable network, she has remained true to her being at every weight and every hairstyle, by not allowing herself to be compromised in anyway. By staying true to herself, she has served as an inspiration for millions of others to do the same. She has the audacity to unapologetically live her Soul Signature.
Do you distance yourself from your own greatness? Shy away from loving yourself for fear of being perceived as being a little too much? Or turn yourself inside out trying to be more like someone else?
Reclaiming Your Own Soul Signature
When I see you, I see that you are not broken. You are not in need of healing or fixing. When I see you, I see the beauty of all life fully personified. I see perfection. It is your willingness to let go of your harsh inner critic that ignites the remembrance and acceptance of yourself as unquantifiable brilliance. This is what allows you to access your Soul Signature, and in turn, remind others to do the same.
In your own way, you are the Oprah of your own life. A loving, nurturing compassionate human being placed in the midst of ideal, yet seemingly challenging surroundings to serve as a reminder of what becomes possible when you surrender your life at the feet of the Divine and unlock a collaboration allowing the fullness of spirit to be demonstrated in all that you do. When you vibrationally align with your uniquely designed purpose, you are living your Soul Signature and all things become possible.
For more than 25 years, Oprah has inspired generations of people from around the globe to live their best life, not a carbon copy of hers. A uniquely inspired, ever evolving, one-of-a-kind expression of your very own. Are you ready to unlock your own Oprah code?
The most important and powerful journey you will ever take is the journey back to your most authentic self. A life of limitless potential, passion and empowerment, awaits you.
