I’m going to start this blog with a thought from “Thoughts from the Seat of the Soul” by Gary Zukov:

The perception that someone else is responsible for what you experience underlies the idea that forgiveness is something that one person does for another.  How can you forgive another person for the fact that you have chosen to step out of your power?

Think of all the people in your life that you dislike and feel “wronged” by.  Then ask yourself, how is it that they had any power in the first place to keep you from feeling less than perfect?  Trust me, I don’t have this concept mastered either but when I AM conscious about it, my life it much more peaceful and expansive.

We love to blame others for our misery, for our pain, for our discomfort – while others feel important when they can have that much impact on our misery, our pain and our discomfort.  Sadly, THAT is what makes us know we are important to somebody.  Pretty messed up, huh?

It’s this energetic game we play – an “energy tug of war” so to speak.  We stay in a situation that drains us of all our energy and then depending on others to fill you back up.

The fact of the matter is that if we allow ourselves to be in a situation that is not serving our highest good, then we need to forgive ourselves for not honoring our “God-Self” and allowing things in our “space” that are harmful.  We are almost always in a mode of reaction rather than choice.  No wonder life seems hard and we seem so powerless to help ourselves.

We can, if we CHOOSE:  Choose to Choose! We are NOT powerless and life is not hard when we stand in our own power.  When we stand in our own power we are choosing to choose in each moment.  When we run into difficult times, we see this as life being interesting because there’s something being shown to us.  We know we are about to “unfold” into the next level of our “being”.  When we stop reacting, life looks so different from that point of view.

You may ask:  “How do I make this shift?”, or you might think “It’s just not that easy”.  The first question has an easy answer:  You CHOOSE to CHOOSE.  It’s that simple.  When you begin to help yourself, the Universe will support you but you’ll never know, will you?, if you don’t try.  The thought that it’s just not that easy is exactly that….A thought.  CHOOSE to think differently.  CHANGE your thought because, IT IS THAT EASY!

Please indulge me with one last thought…..God did not put us here to suffer.  We were meant to come to know the fullness of who we are and experience ourselves as the amazing “creators” that we are at our very core.  We have all this power and yet we don’t connect with it and complain that life is “hard” without even trying to find it.

In this New year, consider going on a reconnaissance mission to find your power.  To connect to that Light within and to start choosing rather than reacting and see what manifests for you.

I wish you a Blessed Christmas and a New Year filled with LOVE, LIGHT and PEACE!
