In the beginning of our conversation, Rhys talks about elevating to the top of his professional career, but still feeling deeply dissatisfied. He felt like he climbed to the top of the wrong mountain. He was in the wrong career and relationship, plus he had become a workaholic, and he was dealing with pain issues in his body.
At 39, Rhys took the radical step of enrolling in an energy medicine school. He says energy medicine was the study of the why of life, not just the what and how. A few years later, he would start his own energy medicine school. He explains that he wanted to help others develop and share their gifts: “there’s something within you that’s effortless for you… the thing that you can do, no one else can do.”
Why do people become dissatisfied, discontent and feel empty in their lives? Rhys says that “fulfillment is a soul quality and radiates from the inside out, it doesn’t come from the outside in, and no one can actually give it to you.” Often times, people think that they want to be something else. But according to Rhys, we’re missing the effortlessness of being who we truly are.
When you are in alignment with who you are and your life’s purpose, things flow in an effortless way. You are in harmony with your energy. However, if you are fighting with your energy, you are going to lose 100% of the time. He explains that it is only possible to access your highest purpose through the heart, not the head.
Living in alignment with your highest self and deepest purpose makes you unstoppable. Quoting Wayne Dyer, your purpose is like “the inner candle flame that never flickers.”
According to Rhys, there are 8,000 healing modalities just in the United States alone. This begs the question: why are people still so unhealthy? The reason is that we’re not addressing this deeper soul quality, or what we might think of as our “higher self.” This higher level of consciousness has the potential to speak directly to the body, mind and heart.
In addition, this higher consciousness is also where real healing occurs. Rhys explains, “Healing isn’t something anyone else can do for you,” it must come from within.
In the end, Rhys reminds us that every human being comes equipped with everything we need for our spiritual journey: “Spirituality isn’t about escaping and getting somewhere else, because there’s nothing outside of your energy field. You are complete.”
