The concept that creative ideas are floating about in the universe just waiting to find a home in someone’s mind was first shared with me many years ago by a good friend. Her dad had been a follower of the “sleeping prophet”, Edgar Cayce, and she learned this philosophy at his knee as a child.
At the time, I thought it was pretty out there. So you’re saying to me that Alexander Graham Bell didn’t invent the telephone? That the concept was floating in the airwaves and could have been received by anyone tuned in to its frequency?
I’ve heard the theory repeated many times over the years, most recently in a recorded speech by WomanSpeak founder KC Baker who took it one step further. Many other people may have already received the idea and implemented their interpretation of it. That is not important. There are people out there, she said, that can only receive the message from you. Why? Wavelengths again. You are tuned in to each other at the right place at the right time.
What a cool concept this is. I would add that your individual perspective on “your” idea will expand it, and you, in ways that are fresh and exciting regardless of who has gone before.
It is interesting to see the flood of women in publications and on social media. The idea to celebrate women and their achievements is a tidal wave. Women are founding businesses everywhere, many offering empowerment through healing, spirituality, fitness, rapport. The circle is back in society, my friends, and it is growing.
