What's Your Magnificent Name?
By Scott & Shannon Peck

“The Love Team”  


Grandeur, majesty, brilliance, richness, abundance, honor, glory, radiance.  These are the words that define you!  Not only are you Magnificent, but the entire universe is standing on tiptoes in anticipation of your arrival – in eager readiness for the full revealing of your magnificent identity.

The question is not, “Are you Magnificent?”

The liberating question is: “What is your Magnificence?” 

Each of us has a unique Life Message & spiritual identity that no one else can express.  If, for any reason, you are saying to yourself, “I don’t feel Magnificent” or “I’m not sure that I am Magnificent,” now is the moment to be free from these limiting and imprisoning thoughts.

Let your heart open to the Magnificence within you.  It is not egotistical to think of yourself as Magnificent.  It is simply the pure acknowledgment that each of us is created with a unique Life Message and individuality.  That is why you cannot shrink from your Magnificence.  No one else can express you!   

Think of all the people in the world who are suffering with low self-esteem or an absence of love.  Each and every one of these individuals is Magnificent, but it takes enormous love to liberate our individual and collective Magnificence.  We desperately need each other’s love. 

On a scale between 1 and 10, to what extent can you say:  I am open to & aware of the Magnificence within me.  We should all be at a 10!  Each of us is being called forth to a higher level of spiritual thinking and living. We are all being called to Magnificence.  There are no exceptions. 

Open your heart to your Magnificence – not as a dream or hope, but as your spiritual right.   Let Love reveal your divine song of Magnificence.

Here is a huge idea: To liberate your Magnificence, it is crucial to see your life in terms of substance, not form.  What, for example, are the forms that would describe your life? All jobs, occupations, positions, titles, and activities are simply forms – ways that we have been expressed.  They do not reveal our substance – the meaning of our life, our unique Life Message, our individual Magnificence.

We all must climb out of the clutter of form to get to our Magnificence.

Here is a powerful exercise that will reveal your true substance.  At our workshops on Liberating Your Magnificence, we ask participants to describe the substance of who they are in only two words.  Here are some of the words participants have given themselves:  purity & joy, clarity & supporter, generosity & teacher, spiritual & healer, enthusiastic & loving,  honest & sensitive, etc.  How’s that for revealing substance!

As people get in the swing of thinking of their substance in this new way, they began to introduce themselves to each other with their new “Magnificent Names” – “Pure Joy,” “Clear Supporter,” Generous Teacher,” “Spiritual Healer,” “Loving Enthusiasm,” and “Honest Sensitivity.”  Such sacred names break free of form and enable us to align ourselves with our true substance and Magnificence.   This inspired focus lets our substance produce the various forms in our lives – and this brings forward our true Magnificence.

Now it’s your turn.  Think of the very best two words that describe your true identity.  Remember, you can change these words anytime you wish.  Go ahead, write them right here:

These two words – your Magnificent name – describe your spiritual substance, your true identity.  Every time you think of yourself this way, the substance of your identity will become clearer and stronger.  And this is just the beginning – the opening pages – of liberating your Magnificence.   Welcome to the heart of Love!
