We want to help you regain clarity about your individual power. Everyone has it. No one can ever take it away from you. No one can ever do anything "bad" to you. No one can assert into your experience. Everything, without exception, comes only by your individual invitation to it. Do you understand the process of asking? When you give something your attention and it becomes your dominant vibration relative to the subject—that is your asking. So, deliberate creating is not so much about looking out into the world and saying, "Oh, there are things that are good that I want to create or attract into my experience, and there are things that are bad that I don't want to create or attract into my experience." Deliberate creating is more about deliberate allowing. Deliberate allowing is more like deliberate vibration.
Excerpted from the workshop: San Francisco, CA on March 08, 2003
It's important to grasp the essence of this quote - you have power! It is yours and as Abraham said, no one can take it away from you. Have you ever caught yourself saying "you hurt my feelings"? If you have individual power, how can someone outside of you hurt YOUR feelings? You have chosen to feel hurt by something that person did or said. Another person might not react the same way.
It's essential that we recognize this and acknowledge it. Take responsibility for how we feel. We cannot blame it on other people. If we do, we abdicate all our power and become puppets. I know that at times all of us feel as if we have absolutely no control. But if we're able to remove ourselves from that situation for a bit, we'll be able to see that we actually still do have control and can extract ourselves from it. Once we're able to recognize that, our feelings will improve almost immediately.
The problem we have is that we either don't take the opportunity to go someplace else to regroup or we don't want to. We might want to feel like a victim, at least for awhile anyway. That may be what we need in order for the momentum of that moment to run out. But it's better for our focus and discipline if we can remove ourselves and redirect our thoughts and feelings.
You have two choices this week - one is to just let things happen and then journal about what you observed and what you did or didn't do.
The other choice is to make a conscious effort to remove yourself when a situation develops that has your momentum heading south. See if you can redirect it. Then journal about that too.
Let me know how things went.
