Q: In a modern world seemingly filled with turmoil and evidence of disconnection, how do we stay balanced or aligned with higher purpose?
Panache Desai: Peace is just one breath away. When you consciously cultivate peace within yourself, you spread it to the world around you. Keep reconnecting to Source. Even when the outside world feels chaotic, you can create your own inner sanctuary rooted in the ultimate reality of oneness and connection.
Q: Is there ever a point when a person is done with vibrational transformation? What does the peak level in human existence look or feel like?
Panache Desai: Vibrational transformation is a three-phase process—the first phase is authenticity and alignment, the second phase is self-realization, and the third and final phase is limitless expansion. This is a state of continual expansion toward greater levels of abundance, purpose, and love.
Q: What is one small action step that someone can take that could make a profound difference in their spiritual alignment?
Acceptance is the most powerful step a person can take toward greater alignment. When you choose to accept yourself—your life, your past, and your present—you free up an enormous amount of energy normally spent on resisting what is.
Q: How do we keep self-love and self-care from becoming self-absorption or selfishness?
Panache Desai: Selfishness is ego-driven, while self-love stems from divine awareness and knowledge of who you are beyond your ego. When you make divine connection and presence a habit, self-care happens naturally. You learn to energetically protect yourself while also becoming more and more generous, loving, and compassionate.
Q: How do you know if you’ve found your divine purpose?
Panache Desai: When you align with your divine purpose, you can feel it at your core. There’s no questioning or second-guessing involved.
Panache Desai will be teaching Experience Authentic Connection from April 6 – 8, 2018 at 1440 Multiversity.
