Are You Giving Your Power Away?

Michael Beckwith said, “I believe that you’re great, that there’s something magnificent about you. Regardless of what has happened to you in your life, regardless of how young or how old you think you might be, the moment you begin to think properly, there’s something that is within you, there’s power within you, that’s greater than the world. It will begin to emerge. It will take over your life. It will feed you. It will clothe you. It will guide you, protect you, direct you, sustain your very existence, if you let it. Now, that is what I know for sure.”  Your soul channels this power from God but are you giving it away and limiting yourself?  The three primary ways I see people giving away their power are: 1. seeking others approval, 2. creating prerequisites before they allow themselves to act on their desires and 3. allowing others to trigger reactions from them.  Self-awareness is the key to preventing these.  When you become aware that you’re doing things that harm yourself you will find it harder and harder to continue the behaviors.

    Self assurance and awareness is so important to live a life filled with hope, joy, love, and happiness. We all have struggles and hardships but we need the awareness that God is in charge and directs our paths in life. There is an old proverb that says God opens many doors in our life journey, however, you must let go of the door knob of the past door to reach the next door on the journey set before you. We often need a life coach, clergy, friend, or partner to help us along the path.

    We are each like a sailboat:
    I had the experience of working with an individual who was suffering from an emotional/mental break down; resulting primarily because he found himself free-falling into a deep and dark crevasse that had suddenly opened and enveloped him.This mental /emotional abyss was formed from the ever widening crack caused by the rift between that which his (egoic) mind was desiring, and that which his heart was requiring, of him in his life. At one point he was agonizing over the thought that his partner, who had just left him, would not be able to find god without having his direction and advise in her life. As he was relating these thoughts to me, I suddenly felt an immediate presence come into my consciousness and stated with great other-worldly-conviction ” no-one has the inside track on god, not even the pope.”
    Spirit went on to give a wonderful visualization of god’s guidance working uniquely in each human being’s life; even if that person is not conscious of god’s presence. Spirit used a powerful metaphor, in which, we can imagine ourselves sitting on a cliff overlooking a harbor full of sailboats and observe as each sailboat is working with the same prevalent wind and yet, it is powering each sailboat to their different individualized destination. To think, that the same wind is being employed to power each sailboat to different self-determined destination is a very disturbing concept to the controlling entities and power-brokers, who for centuries have prided themselves in knowing the will and direction of this one-prevalent and all-blowing wind.
    Each human being is like a sailboat and as we set our (course) goals and intentions, it is like setting our sails to catch the power of the wind, which in this case, is symbolic of the power of god filling our intention and not so much, in the setting of our direction. Intuitively, from this symbolic use, we can surmise that just as there must be differing qualities of cloth for the boats’ sails, there must also be differing qualities of thought for our life’s details.
    As this metaphor-analogy unfolded, I came to realize that our true power lies, not so much, in the understanding of the intricate nature of god (wind) but rather, in the fundamental choice we make in each moment, as to the quality of our thought (sailcloth) and its innate capacity to accommodate god’s energy (wind); as it fills our sails and powers each of us to our unique destination. gh
