Where is the Life we have lost in living? Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?

— T.S. Eliot

Thrive Global Signature Protocol

Come Into the Present Moment

(Preferably done with closed eyes, but can be done with eyes open)


  1. Simply become aware of the rising and the falling of your breath (3 breaths)

  2. Now allow yourself to receive the breath. Don't take the breath in, receive it. (Realize the breath is a gift. We have done nothing to earn our breath). So we receive it and then let go of it. (The breath is the perfect metaphor for life: we have to let go - create space - in order to receive).(3 breaths)

  3. We now feel the wave of the breath throughout our whole body. When our breath moves, our whole body moves. We can feel this as a wave. (3 breaths) (We may need to adjust our body position to experience this - in other words it is more difficult if we are slumping or have our legs crossed.) (Can be done at anytime during the day as a mini-break).

Heart Wisdom Protocol

To access our inborn wisdom

(5 - 10 seconds between each step)


  1. Realize there is an infinite reservoir of wisdom within you that you can tap into at any time.

  2. Access this wisdom by placing a hand (or both hands) on your heart. Connect with your heart.

  3. Bring to mind any situation in your life that is challenging and could use the light of your innate wisdom.

  4. Be aware of what you are feeling in your body right now.

  5. What does your heart say about what you are feeling? (Be spontaneous, speak directly from your heart without your mind censoring).

  6. If you wish, you can write down any wisdom or insight that has emerged.

Wisdom

Our values are reflected in the way we live our lives. When we choose apart from our values, we become conflicted and confused. When we live in accord with our values we are strengthened and aligned - we have energy and purpose.

Take a moment, in silence, to make a decision that aligns with your values. This is wisdom in action.

Wisdom

The wisdom which a wise man tries to communicate always sounds foolish. Knowledge can be communicated, but not wisdom. One can find it, live it, do wonders through it, but one cannot communicate and teach it.
