The first time I was chatting on the phone with Martha Beck, we were talking about my business and Martha said, “Ah, I see. You’re one of us.”
“One of what?” I asked.
“A stealth agent for The Uni-verse,” she answered. “People think you’re a doctor. But your physician’s white coat is like your superhero disguise.”
I laughed – and, reluctantly and a bit shyly, nodded. Yeah, I guess that’d be me.
We went on to discuss many of our colleagues, who we suspect are also stealth agents for The Uni-verse. Some wear the superhero costumes of business strategists, or fitness instructors, or sex teachers or creativity coaches. They are relationship experts, and finance gurus, and parenting counselors, and art instructors and health coaches.
Yet, deep down, at the root of their messages, they are in service to The Uni-verse. They are essentially spiritual leaders in disguise, without the robes, habits, and pulpits.
When Amy Ahlers and I launched our business school for visionaries program – Visionary Ignition Switch - every single student who enrolled was a stealth agent for The Uni-verse. When I was inducted into the Association Of Transformational Leadership in Palm Springs, every member there was just such an agent.
But What Does It Mean?
I can’t say how Martha would define it, but to me, being a stealth agent for The Uni-verse is not about religion. And it’s also not about being “chosen” or “special.” It’s not about any particular deity – or even about a Uni-verse that exists outside of you.
Instead, it’s a choice you make, regardless of your profession, to align with the Divine within you, and to be in service to the Divine within other beings as part of a vision to make this planet a better place. It’s answering a calling and knowing the world needs you to do what only you can do in your divinely unique way. It’s being part of The Team.
At the Association for Transformational Leadership conference, I had the privilege of seeing what can happen when people align with the Divine in their own unique way. Instant intimacy. Open hearts. Planetary revolution. Healing on a massive scale. Unity. Oneness. High vibration energy lifting up everyone on earth who dares to face north.
When you choose to be a stealth agent for The Uni-verse – no matter what you do – you allow yourself to be used in service to the highest good of all beings. You become a vessel for the Divine to work through you.
You’ll never do it perfectly. None of us will because we’re human – and that means we have personalities and egos that get in the way of letting us be clear channels.
But simply making the commitment that you will be in service to The Uni-verse changes everything. That one clear intention is a game-changer.
When You’re A Stealth Agent For The Uni-verse, Mystical Sh*t Happens
It’s not why you do it – instead it’s a welcome side effect – but when you become a stealth agent for The Uni-verse, Martha and I can both attest to the fact that mystical stuff just starts happening. Clients appear. Money flows in. The one thing you most need shows up just before you almost got around to asking for it. The phone rings with good news. You get the best parking spot. A rhino shows up with a message for you.
It’s almost as if The Uni-verse gives you a hand up, knowing that your success is The Uni-verse’s success. You are essentially co-creating with the Divine, and it can be downright delicious.
So I Ask You… Are You A Stealth Agent For The Uni-verse?
How do you show up in your work? Do you invite the Divine to work through you? Are you a visionary committed to making this planet a better place? Are you brave enough to answer the call when the call comes?
