Derek Rydall – The Life Code
- Life Code Fundamentals—Your Map of Reality and Survival Kit
Our life’s work comes out of our life story, our biggest message from our biggest messes — everything is conspiring to make you the person who can fulfill your unique purpose and give your unique gifts. On the human level, it looks like everything is just random chance and accident, but underneath it has a definite plan.
When you understand the underlying map and survival kit you created to make it through this story, you will have in your hands an almost magical compass that will lead you out of the wilderness into a whole new land of possibilities.
- The Core Wound & The Core Initiation
We talk about core wounds that lead to repression of one part or more, and cause us to create coping mechanisms that limit and oppress our greater potential. But there’s something deeper going on – a Core Initiation. These early traumas are activating deeper capacities and launching you on a quest designed to develop some very important parts of you.
When you see your life through the lens of the core wound, you are trapped in the story, believing you’re the character, a victim of circumstances, and the best you can do is improve your ability to cope, survive, and manage the problems life sends you.
But when you learn how to see your life from this higher level, enemies become allies, obstacles become opportunities, struggles make you stronger – and you reclaim all the power and ability — and even time you think you’ve lost!
- Your Ego’s Goal & Your Soul’s Goal
Because of the psychological model and conditioning around wound-ology, most people are striving to just survive, cope, or improve a self they believe is unworthy, damaged, or not good enough. This leads to what is called ‘the false goal’ and it’s where most people remain stuck. The worst part is that even if they get it, they are never satisfied, and it often leads to worse methods of coping.
At this stage you see the real goal you’re here for, the real reason you experienced what you did – like someone turning on a light and suddenly realizing you’ve been living in the dark most your life! Like staring at one of those pictures with another picture hidden in it. When you finally see it, everything makes sense.
- Your Life’s Work Is Hidden In Your Life Story
The Workshop You’ve Been Living Is the One You’ll Be Giving.
In this stage, we’ll identify the key learning moments, turning points, greatest epiphanies that have shaped your life, changed the course of things, and brought you to where you are now. As we do, you’ll see the underlying ‘framework’ you’ve been living. This reveals the intrinsic wisdom you have, your unique areas of genius and the real message and mission you came here for.
Your life has had great lessons to teach you – and as you understand them, you are now empowered to teach those life lessons to others with a similar journey – even if you haven’t mastered them. Just the fact that you see and understand them makes your wisdom real and valuable to others – because awareness is the beginning of real choice, real power, and true freedom.
Whether you’re a writer, teacher, healer, artist, entrepreneur, or employee, understanding this will make you a leader, a light, and a beneficial presence wherever you go. It will also give you the secret sauce to creating work that stands out from the competition – because when you’re expressing your authentic self, there is no competition!
- The Question Your Life Answers, The Problem Your life Solves
In this stage, we more fully define your unique path and message by looking at your life’s journey from different perspectives. On one hand, your life story illustrates a problem you’ve been trying to solve, but it has also been a journey about a question you’re trying to answer.
In drama, this is called the dramatic question, and that question compels the whole story — ‘Can love conquer all?’ “Can you really have it all?” “Can one be successful and supported by being their authentic self?” The story then reveals the blueprint of what it takes to answer that question. The same is true for your life story.
Once you realize the core question your life is trying to answer and the core problem your life is seeking to solve, you not only understand why things have happened, but you’re able to realign your path to be on purpose and communicate this wisdom in a way that makes a powerful impact.
This is the kind of mastery and congruence that leads to ideal opportunities, successful projects, dynamic creativity and productivity, and a quantum leap in your capacity to create more abundance.
