Your “Identity Signature” 
By Scott and Shannon Peck 


What is your “Identity Signature?” 
Just as you have a unique written signature, you also have a unique “Identity Signature” — a quick, illuminating “signature” of your highest selfhood. 

Your Identity Signature is a place so profoundly deep in your being that it causes giant shifts to occur once you identify it. It is your divine self become visible. It is the core place of your power for healing and finding solutions to life challenges. It is the place where you can confidently call forth the lovemate you deserve, the community of Soulmates you belong with, and the opportunities to express your highest Self. 

Here’s how we discovered ours. One Friday, sitting in a park, Shannon stood up, asking Scott to put down his book and watch her. She announced that she was going to boldly reveal what her inner self looked like. 

She began to make large, forward arm motions showing herself as a giant and powerful waterfall, spilling over with unending waters of passion and healing. She explained that her waterfall was tumbling over all problems with massive healing force — helping innumerable people find healing and power over their problems. Acting out her Identity Signature, she saw with great clarity her unique and eternal worth to the universe. 

“OK Scott,” said Shannon, “it’s time to see your Identity Signature.” Scott, a bit intimidated by being in the middle of a public park, held back. Shannon challenged him: “If we are reluctant to express ourselves boldly, we will never be self-actualized or move into our power.” Scott smiled, trapped by the logic, and stood up to act out his Identity Signature. He opened his arms in an expansive arc, explaining that he was embracing all humanity in love. Then he slowly lifted his arms, supporting those in his embrace, empowering them to rise in their Magnificence. “This feels wonderful,” said Scott. “I feel my core identity with greater clarity and power.” 

The two of us had — in a few moments — acted out our true identities with boldness. Shannon’s boldness came from asking herself the same question we ask workshop participants: “What would you do differently if you loved yourself twice as much?” The answer always came back, “I’d be twice as bold in expressing myself!” 

On a scale between 1 and 10, to what extent are you boldly expressing your true Identity Signature? Most people at our workshops say 4-5. It’s no wonder why people hold back. No one wants to risk rejection, jealousy, failing, offending, or being judged. 

But think of what’s at stake by not expressing ourselves at a 10. Our magnificence is invisible. This is a massive loss to ourselves — and the universe. We would never have heard Beethoven’s Fifth, seen Monet’s water lilies, or experienced Oprah’s transforming power if they had not been willing to express themselves at a 10. 

Each of us has brilliance, value, worth, and magnificent beauty that is unequalled and unique. No one can be your Identity Signature but you. It takes courage and intuition to boldly step into your Identity Signature, but the rewards are immense — self-worth, fulfillment, and alignment with your highest Selfhood.

Imagine a world where every person was expressing herself or himself at a 10. No more watered down versions and no more timid hiding out! Our genius would come forth for all to see and enjoy. 

We invite you to discover your beautiful Identity Signature and act it out. Honor and relish what happens when you boldly radiate your Identity Signature at a 10. Let your highest Self bring forth the wonders of a life of magnificent giving, rich creativity, and powerful works. Become visible! 

The effect of your true Identity Signature on others is the greatest thing you’ll ever offer them. Spend quiet moments each day and privately radiate your Identity Signature to the entire universe. Let your Identity Signature — your true essence — reveal your love, call forth your deserved Soulmates, heal your challenges, and saturate your world with a loving embrace of each other person’s Identity Signature as well. 

Honoring your Identity Signature says “I love you!” — to yourself and to others. Welcome to the heart of Love.
