Unprecedented might be a rare word to come across, unless one is an astronaut, inventor or say, you. The word means something that has never been known or experienced before, something that is unparalleled and unique. It's rare because one's ears are more likely to hear the sentiment, 'Everything has been done before'. That idea, those words, this action, every creation = done, done, done and done. Thankfully, not quite.
In order to manifest into form, every idea, word, action and creation streams through a physical body. And just like we each have one-of-a-kind fingerprints, we each have our own unique soulprint. It's the essence you give to everything that flows into, through and from your being, including what you say, think, imagine, visualise, make, create and do.
Your essence adds to the ingredients list of everything in your life.
Ever prepared a meal using the exact same ingredients, following the exact same recipe and method as someone else, yet yours turns out slightly (or completely!) differently? Another example surfaced for me during an aromatherapy course I took many years ago. During one particular class the same blue glass bottles and the same three essential oils were handed out to everyone. We each had to work with the same number of drops of each oil to make our own personal blend. Not only did the order of the drops alter the final scent, but even when same oils were added in identical order, using the same number of drops - each scent was unique.
Even though it's not visible on an ingredients list, we each add a dash of our own essence to all things we come into contact with or birth into being.
We are living at a time when we can consciously choose to bring through our being - not who we think we are supposed to be or who others want us to be or even who we were taught to be - but who we really are.
And you are unprecedented simply by being you. Because no one has or ever will be able to add to the world in the way that you do right now.
I'd love to hear about your uniqueness! In what ways do you connect with your essence? Add your comments below or be a part of the conversation on my Facebook Page.

p.s. Kalvin reckons sure, it can appear as if everything has been done before. But, not with your dash of soul essence. Our essence is aware of its uniqueness. It is what ignites our desires, fuels our passions and drives our determination. It's what pulls us forth, it's infused our breath and we feel it every time we are lit up, inspired and uplifted. Which means whenever we feel disconnected to our essence, but want to feel plugged in - look to and connect with what inspires, lights up and uplifts you. Whether the last time you felt inspired was this morning, last week, last year or when you were a kid. You can even invite new inspiration into your life by setting the intention to be open to it. Unprecedentedly.
