Spinning The Wheel

Bill White

I can’t express how many times in coaching my clients I’ve heard questions asking why someone might be born in a particular time or why the economy has to falter at this point in life. These questions all elude to the larger circumstances that we find ourselves immersed in as we play out the drama that is our own lives.

I remember from my own past, wishing I had been born in other times, because of whatever circumstances appealed to me from that time. Yes, we are here and now and whether we like it or not this is what we have to work with. But let’s not take a sullen view of this.

First, let’s consider that there are challenges and triumphs in every era. Sure, we romanticize our favorite era, or perhaps even find ourselves clinging to an era we’ve already lived through, but the truth, as the Bible says, is that there is nothing new under the sun.

In every generation, there has been sickness, war, booms and busts, tragedies of all sorts. The fashion, music and technology may change but the same patterns manifest themselves over and over again. But trust me, some great love stories happened during the world wars. The pinnacles of human kindness have manifested themselves in some of our darkest hours.

So why is it that we glorify the past? Billy Joel sang, ‘the good ole’ days weren’t always good.’ I would suggest to you that we resist being in the now, quite simply because we are wired to resist change.

We have within our brains, a ‘reticular activation system.’ The function of this system is to filter out all of the countless data our 5 senses take in that we don’t consider relevant at both a conscious and subconscious level. This data, which we don’t pay attention to is none-the-less stored in our short term memory and is then purged from the system each night as we dream.

It is this purging process coupled with our long term memory that helps us to remember relevant data, and most importantly preserves our identity. If this system did not work, we would at worst wake up like newborns each day, and at best operate on a very primitive instinctual basis.

What gets us stuck is what keeps us the same. And let’s face it, deep down, we all want things to stay the same, only get increasingly better over time.

I’d be the one person who could vouch for that perhaps more than most. During my twenties, I went to work building a life for myself. Each attempt (there were 5), I’d start dating someone, I’d have a job and a new car. And each time, after some short period of time, I would lose my car, my job and my girlfriend. It was as if each time it was a house of cards, doomed to come crashing down. Ultimately at wits end, I surrendered myself to change. When I did, I had an experience that led me overnight across the country where everything fell perfectly into place in 6 short months.

You see, we can play with statistics and probabilities all day long. We can analyze everything with logic and reason, and in many cases, we will arrive at an acceptable destination. But, what is really acceptable to you? Do you feel ok with complacency?

It has always been my belief that there is a higher and lower expression of each of us. This isn’t so much about how good or evil we can be, but more so, about how much of our potential we can reach. Apathy is our enemy.

Bottom line, the difference between the greatest expression of you and complacency is simple. Facts don’t matter at all. What matters is how willing you are to act on faith, to seize the value of every moment and to disregard the background static of the world in so far as it seems to limit your odds at fulfillment. When you make the leap into flowing with change, you embrace synchronicity.

Bill White

Bill White was born in 1969, and adopted by the people who became his family in that same year. At the age of ten, his parents separated, and five members of his family died, including his beloved grandmother, who passed away in the presence of 10-year-old Bill on Christmas Day, 1979. At an age when most young people are riding their bikes, playing baseball, and not worrying about much other than their homework, Bill had already come face to face with that question, 'What is the use?' He immersed himself in a study of ancient and modern philosophical, theological and metaphysical traditions from throughout the world, seeking an answer to that question. Bill's study continues to this day. The body of his work provides the seeker with a much needed synthesis of the various traditions available, and more than that, offers very practical applications of a vast amount of esoteric knowledge. It is this combination of learning and living his philosophy, with an appreciation of all cultures and systems, that makes synchronicity an essential topic, and Bill White the teacher for our times. Bill shares his life experiences to motivate and inspire audiences. A somewhat mystical story of overcoming, his keynote and motivational presentations include topics on dreams, synchronicity, power animals, how to turn conflicts into opportunities and how to live out your destiny by decoding life's secret messages. Having a unique ability to teach individuals how to interpret the seeming coincidences that occur in their lives and leverage that insight into a more successful and meaningful life experience, Bill inspires others to take responsibility for choosing their own path and to believe in the guidance available directly to them from the universe. As a true synchronicity expert, Bill is passionate about assisting others to decipher life's secret messages and achieve the greatness they were meant to achieve. Bill is an internationally recognized speaker who captivates his audiences with his stories, weaves in the valuable lessons he has learned from the universe along the way, and warms their hearts with a pastoral style of compassion. He focuses his energy to present action oriented and transformative information in a polished style. Bill's rapidly growing international audience comes from several sources including the following: As a highly successful life coach, Bill has worked with such high profile clients as Mike Litman, bestselling author of Conversations with Millionaires; marketing guru, Stephen Pierce; and virtual marketing pioneer, Johan Mok. Bill's monthly magazine Synchronicity In Your Life reaches an audience of 35,000+ people. Bill joined such well known personalities as Jack Canfield and John Gray as a contributing author of 101 Great Ways to Improve Your Life: Volume 2 as well co-authored Enthusiasm Day by Day with Flemish psychologist, Ineke Van Lint.
