How to Restore Your Power to
You came to Earth as spirit with all the power of the
universe to create anything that you desired. Your name was “I Am” and from the
time you could open your eyes you were a part of all that surrounded you. There
was no crib, no mom and dad, brother or sister, walls or ceilings. You were they
and they you. Although there was time and space between you and what you saw,
you did not understand that you were not what you saw, felt, tasted or heard.
Even smelly diapers had no meaning for you. There was nothing you wanted or
needed because it was outside your awareness and experience.
something happened; you began to communicate with your parents and they started
educating you in the ways of the world. Eventually you responded to a sound
every time someone came into the room – it was your name. Now, you became “I am Roy” and you began to discover that you had
some personal power in the new world; when you cried someone came to you. But
this power was very limited and you did not understand why you did not always
get what you wanted, and people did not always respond to you the way you would
As you grew older the people around you limited
your power by telling you what you could and could not do or have, and of course
by this time the power you entered into life with was severely restricted. You
were expected to act within the boundaries set by your parents, you community
and country. You were given a belief system or religion inherited from your
parents, laws, and the correct detergent to use as handed down from your
You were given five words to use every day which
disempower you, kill the spirit, and make you dependent; these words are “right
and wrong,” “good and bad,” and the most disempowering of all, “can’t!”
So far the only way that you had to fight back was to break
their laws, turn away from their beliefs and use your own language. And it is
because you still believe that you are only the physical body, that you are
powerless to change the world and God is punishing you. You are completely
disassociated with who and what you are. You do not know that you are the
creator and that you are not a victim.
You were limited not only by the ones who had power
over you, but by a punitive God who had power over your parents. If you wanted
anything you had to get down on your knees and beg for it and more than likely
you would not receive it because you were undeserving. Also you were required to
support the institutions that taught you these things. Failure to comply would
mean even less control over your destiny in this life or any other.
Time has demonstrated that humanity is unable to
comply with systems, rules or commandments that are meant to control the
spiritual nature of humanity. The system that has taken away our power is now
breaking down. It was an era, a time in our history that no longer has any
relevance to were we are in our evolution.
The damage however is not irreversible and we now
have more freedom to explore other aspects of humanity or the human condition.
For centuries we have limited ourselves to the five senses, and anyone exploring
or demonstrating their other capabilities were condemned by the church and or
killed. The progress from the earthly perspective is very slow; however, from
the perspective of the universe, it has happened over night.
In our present time, religion represents
approximately 84% of the world’s population. It is religion that has brought us
to this step in our evolution and is the greatest influence on how we live our
lives today. It is religion that is therefore responsible for most of what is
going on in the world at this time in our history; “the religious revolution.”
Because we have been so disempowered we believe that we are not creating or are
responsible for the way we act, whether it is personal, world or natural
conditions. God has been the scapegoat and convenience for us to unburden
ourselves of responsibility or accountability. Until recently the extent of our
personal power was only known to a few who used it exploit the less aware.
Development of our spiritual awareness comes slowly
the longer we leave it. It is usually because we have bought into what we have
been taught and we don’t see the necessity. However, with age comes the wisdom
to know what is and what could have been. By that time many have given up and
find it just too much bother or effort to try and change. The fact that I am
sixty years of age and have 9 years of experience writing about these things
only makes it a little easier. I still have to deal with over fifty years of
past experience and it is a slow process, but it’s not impossible.
As a child and even into my teens and adulthood I
felt powerless. I also felt like a victim and limited in options. I fit in well
with those around me because I gave away my power to them. At the back of my
mind I knew that this was not who I was; patience, stubbornness and a glimmer of
light into the future would help me break the mold.
For those who have ever felt this way and for those
who want to take back their power there is a sure way of doing it one step at a
Simply put and explained it can be summed up in one
word; responsibility. It is a simple methodical procedure that will allow you to
own your life and allow you to become aware of the power you always had to
create abundance, good health, and happiness.
In order for this to happen you must own the
circumstances of your life; everything you do, and everything that others do to
you and everything that comes naturally. You cannot give away what you do not
You are one of two things; you are either a victim
or a creator. The exercise is to know yourself as the creator of all you
experience. That very concept will be
difficult even for the most enlightened. But you must remember that it is your
past that is dictating those thoughts. That is why you must take small steps to
overcome them. Remember I said the exercise is simply, but it certainly is not
From now on everything that happens to you is a
direct result of your desire to have it happen at some level of your
consciousness. Whether it is good or bad, works or does not work for you, you
must own it. You are the creator and there is a reason for it to happen. You are
creating all the circumstances of your life. So the scapegoat here can be your
subconscious it you are not ready to own it at a higher level. It’s not God’s
will, and it is not that you are deserving or undeserving or are a victim of
natural circumstance or in the wrong place at the wrong time. It’s not that you
are even lucky or unlucky or something happened by change. Everything is your
creation for a reason that may or may not be known to you at this time. Even if
you have to lie to yourself for a period of time; you must own all that you
You must know that accidents and illness are also
your responsibility. You create them for your own purpose at some level of
consciousness. Take that responsibility whether you like it or not and know that
you created it for purpose – don’t give it away or blame anyone or thing. By
doing this you will eventually own your power to change or avoid these things.
If you give away your power, you automatically become a victim and powerless to
change your circumstances. Don’t try to outthink yourself, and ask yourself; why
would I want this, why would I do that to myself or I can’t make that happen.
Accept your power to make them happen for whatever reason known or unknown and
eventually you will be in control and able to turn those things around. Know
also that any event or circumstance is not a “bad” or “good” thing. All things
are created for your purpose, whatever that may be. In hindsight you will
discover the reason.
Dropping a hammer on your big toe can be a good
thing if it gets your awareness – it works for you. It may be a sign that
something is not working in your life; time to make a change. A trip to the
doctor may provide an opportunity for you to meet your soul mate. It happens for
a reason; your reason, accept that, and you will know your power to create all
the circumstance of your life. It is not God’s will, you are not a victim, and
it is you who is manifesting all the events of your life.
In every moment of your life from this point
forward accept your power don’t give it away any longer. Don’t listen to those
old thoughts; create new ones. In every minute of every day, tell yourself that
you are the creator; that whatever you are doing is for reason, for your
purpose. It doesn’t matter what others may say or do, you are not giving your
power away. This may be slow and painful, but it works. Create this awareness in
you and you will become the person you have always known yourself to be. You
will never be a victim again.
Remember it never works in your favour to give your
power away no matter what the circumstance. Even if for the moment someone has
physical power over you; know that at some level you have created the situation
for your purpose, hang onto that thought and at some point you will have the
power to change it. Most importantly as you become aware of your personal power
to create, you will no longer need undesirable experiences to awaken you to
things in your life that are not working.
Avoid judgment, for even in judging your own
experiences; you will fail.
So, if the boss calls you into his office today and
fires you, you made it happen for a greater purpose. If you win the lotto; it
was not luck or chance; it was your desire, your power that made it happen. All
things work for your greater purpose. And you have the power to change them,
whether you believe it or not. This exercise will help you get reacquainted with
your power. Recognize the doubt when it comes up and understand that it is
natural for it to happen, own the doubt and give it away. It is your doubt, not
someone else’s, and you have the power to overcome it.
The more you work at this the faster it
will be made manifest in your life.
