Are You A Stealth Agent For God?

Are You A Stealth Agent For God?

The first time I was chatting on the phone with Martha Beck, we were talking about my business and Martha said, “Ah, I see. You’re one of us.”

“One of what?” I asked.

“A stealth agent for God,” she answered. “People think you’re a doctor. But your physician’s white coat is like your superhero disguise.”

I laughed – and, reluctantly and a bit shyly, nodded. Yeah, I guess that’d be me.

We went on to discuss many of our colleagues, who we suspect are also stealth agents for God.  Some wear the superhero costumes of business strategists or fitness instructors or sex teachers or creativity coaches. They are relationship experts and finance gurus and parenting counselors and art instructors and health coaches.

Yet, deep down, at the root of their messages, they are in service to Source. They are, essentially, spiritual leaders in disguise, without the robes and habits and pulpits.

When Amy Ahlers and I launched our business school for visionaries program – Visionary Ignition Switch – every single student who enrolled was a stealth agent for God. When I was inducted into theAssociation Of Transformational Leadership in Palm Springs last weekend, every member there was just such an agent.

But What Does It Mean?

I can’t say how Martha would define it, but to me, being a stealth agent for God is not about religion. And it’s also not about being “chosen” or “special.” It’s not about any particular deity – or even about a God that exists outside of you.

Instead, it’s a choice you make, regardless of your profession, to align with the Divine within you, and to be in service to the Divine within other beings, as part of a vision of making this planet a better place. It’s answering a calling and knowing the world needs you to do what only you can do in your divinely unique way.  It’s being part of The Team.

At the Association for Transformational Leadership conference, I had the privilege of seeing what can happen when people align with the Divine in their own unique way.  Instant intimacy. Open hearts. Planetary revolution. Healing on a massive scale.  Unity. Oneness. High vibration energy lifting up everyone on earth who dares to face north.

When you choose to be a stealth agent for God – no matter what you do – you allow yourself to be used in service to the highest good of all beings.  You become a vessel for the Divine to work through you.

You’ll never do it perfectly. None of us will because we’re human – and that means we have personalities and egos that get in the way of letting us be clear channels.

But simply making the commitment that you will be in service to Source changes everything. That one clear intention is a game-changer.

When You’re A Stealth Agent For God, Mystical Sh*t Happens

It’s not why you do it – instead it’s a welcome side effect – but when you become a stealth agent for God, Martha and I can both attest to the fact that mystical stuff just starts happening.  Clients appear. Money flows in. The one thing you most need shows up just before you almost got around to asking for it.  The phone rings with good news.  You get the best parking spot.  A rhino shows up with a message for you.

It’s almost as if the Universe gives you a hand up, knowing that your success is the Universe’s success. You are essentially co-creating with the Divine, and it can be downright delicious.

So I Ask You… Are You A Stealth Agent For God?

How do you show up in your work?  Do you invite the Divine to work through you?  Are you a visionary committed to making this planet a better place? Are you brave enough to answer the call when the call comes?

'A stealth agent for god'?
Dr's etc are in service to society.
Could this perhaps be a 'stealthy' way of slipping religion into the mix?

Reminds me that 'we are angels on a human journey...'

"Agent for" seems to suggest "instructed by". Isn't that slightly self important? Well meaning and harmless though,.... I suppose.
