Manifesting Your Destined Life Purpose by Mike Oppenheim


On Tuesday, January 9th I had the opportunity to attend Intuitive Development’s latest workshop in their Uniting Through Intuition Series: “Manifesting Your Destined Life Blueprint.”


I knew going in that regardless of content, I’d have a rare opportunity to see Lynn M. Bunch “do her thing.” I normally only get to see this in my private sessions, which are sparingly doled out to me months in advance, thanks to her refusal to work 24/7, and sleep and eat in the office, when we let her, to meet client demands.


Suffice it to say that Lynn, the guru of gut-checks, did not disappoint, and the 50+ attendees agreed (I base this on their voluntary ovation at the end of the event). The evening flew by, as Lynn introduced, taught, and reinforced graspable concepts that help anyone of any age and inclination to process emotional difficulties like a pro.


Lynn opened things up by explaining to her audience, a mix of fresh faces and familiar ones, that she “sometimes fucking swears” but knows how to “not fucking swear” when it’s appropriate. This wasn’t some planned or canned opener, it was just Lynn doing what we all should do: following her messages, often hilariously.


The reason I like Lynn, is because she’s caring and funny, but the reason I listen to and respect her, is because she fearlessly honors and practices her lessons: living in alignment with the intuitive messages we are innately wired to receive and follow.


Back to Tuesday: After her opening, I guess Lynn’s next message told her something along the lines of, “help strangers confront judgment issues to resolve their non-issues, which they mistakenly think are the issues, duh!”


Wait. What? Can you explain that? I could, but sadly, that’s precisely why I attended Lynn’s event: because while her teachings are easy to memorize, studies repeatedly reveal to us that learning isn’t memorization-based, it’s conceptual and experiential based, hence the need for courses, discipline, and practice. If you want to master a concept, you have to…wait for it…master the concept—and mastery requires master effort.


However, I will say the following: Lynn made me feel comfortable with admitting the uncomfortable truth of myself, to myself:  the only way to fall asleep and wake up each day with a vitality and energy for life is to listen to, accept, and then embrace the messages that lie within my own intuition and consciousness.


No matter how much I want to blame others and myself, see myself or others as victims, or throw pity parties and slip into “I’m-a-zombie-and-life-sucks” mode, I can and should try harder to do what all children do, before society and culture teaches it out of them: trust my gut, and proceed with confidence and non-attachment.


The event was fun, funny, and educational, in equal parts. After Lynn helped one attendee break through with a major struggle in their life, she would swivel to another person, and cautiously but courageously carve into their conundrum.


I was shocked and awed, but also entirely unsurprised, since I knew going in that Lynn has the same skill that all humans possess, she’s “just” confident, well-practiced, and never wavering in her adherence to uniting with her intuition. Lynn understands that life’s biggest obstacles are precisely why we intuit; we are children of life, desperate for new lessons, yet hysterically upset when the very lessons we crave give us the requirements for learning: “homework,” “learning,” and “tests.”
