Greetings, Beloved Ones.
Behind the kindest eyes, evil can lurk. Behind the sweetest words, deviance can hide. Behind what you want to label as “truth” lies the darkest secret of all – that you are giving to others your power. Giving your power to those who don’t love you, don’t care about you, don’t care what happens to you, and most of all they don’t care if you live or die.
This may seem a bit dramatic, but We wanted to make it dramatic to get your attention. We would like you to Think.
To think – to whom have you given your power?
You may not realize it, but even in little day-to-day decisions when you allow someone else to tell you what to do and you follow without protest, you are giving away your free will, your innate power of your right to choose.
Perhaps you do it to keep the peace, perhaps because you feel if you rock the boat nastiness will follow, or perhaps it is because you are afraid that if you follow what you feel that you won’t know what will happen, and so that fear keeps you locked into a place of perpetual fear and isolation, hesitant to make any decision that could cause change to happen in your life.
Maybe you don’t think that these little decisions really mean anything. But We want you to know that every time you stuff your thoughts, opinions, and beliefs down you are creating opportunity for dis-ease, illness, ill thoughts, and self-hatred within yourself.
We don’t want that for you. We don’t want that for any human living on the planet. But all too often We watch you, the Ones We Love, make decisions to deny yourself the opportunity to be all that you are. You negate the wonderfulness that you are by allowing others to impose their beliefs upon you.
There may be times when you make a choice that causes a negative reaction – a “mistake”, but these are learning opportunities and should not be considered the mark of a deficient person.
You deserve to have more wonderfulness in your life. You may think We mean objects and possessions, but We don’t. We want you to brim over with all the Light and Love you are truly capable of possessing, of sharing with those around you, but which you turn your back on every time you allow someone else to own your power.
You are WONDERFUL! We Love you absolutely and completely and there is absolutely NOTHING you can do that will make Us turn our backs on you. Don’t worry about making a “wrong” choice, don’t worry about not “living to your potential”, and most of all, don’t worry about whether others think you are worthy.
You are worthy! You are Loved! You are a Wonderful human being. And We want you to know this – and to know that We are with you, every step of the way. You can change your life for the better, you can bring in and take in more Light and Love you might think possible – all with just taking your power back, little by little.
Look at your life closely – what makes you unhappy? Your job you feel locked into? Your career path? Your relationships? Your familial relations? When you feel helpless and victimized this is an indicator that you are abdicating your power to someone else.
And that someone else does not Love you – regardless of what he or she says, that person does not love you, for they are putting you into a box and labeling you with terms like, “stupid” or “dumb” or “ignorant” even if they don’t say them out loud to you. Because they are telling you tacitly or out loud that you don’t know what is best for you, that you don’t how to make a “good” decision, that what you choose is unworthy of their time and energy.
Some things you will find easy to change. End conversations with those who monopolize your time yet don’t allow you the same opportunity to share. Walk away from conversations with people who want you to feel sorry for them and they want you to take on their burdens, even though those burdens have nothing to do with you. Look around you, look at the people in your life, and realize you can make a positive change for yourself, today, but taking back your power little bit by little bit.
Is there someone who hangs around you at work, preventing you from getting your job done because they want to chat about their day, last night, what they watched on TV…regardless of the topic they are taking up your valuable time and making you a prisoner at your own place. Ask them to leave, put on a headset and focus on work you need to do – and allow yourself to grow your own self esteem by taking back your power with this one small step. You deserve to take care of YOU and no one will do it like you will.
You are not alone – you are NEVER alone! We are here with you, supporting you every step of the way. Things may be a little rocky once you start making changes, but hold onto the Truth that WE LOVE YOU and YOU DESERVE to make whatever change you want to make in your life.
Some people stay in places because they think they are getting “compensation” to buffer their feelings of self-worth. There is nothing that is worth your own regard of yourself. You deserve to love yourself and there is nothing anyone can give you that will supplement the lack of self-worth you possess because you have taken something to “compensate” your giving up your voice, your power, your free will.
We are reaching out to you, for you are reading this in this moment. Allow Us to come in and commune with you in this second. Allow Us to flood you with the Love We have for you, and let Us strengthen your resolve so you can make the decisions that need to be made, regardless of how “hard” they may seem to be.
Have you given and given and given so much that everyone takes you for granted? Are you the first person people think of when something bad happens? This is not because you are kind natured – it is because they can dump their unhappiness upon you. Look at how often you are imposed upon, whether it is to work late, bring an extra dish for the potluck, to pick someone up so they have a ride, do your children’s chores around the house because they have to do “something” else, or even help someone out with their finances.
These may seem like natural things to do for those you work with or those in your family. In truth, these people are expecting you to do what they don’t want to do. They don’t want to utilize time management skills, they don’t want to step up and accept responsibility for miscalculating, so they use you instead to cover for their mistakes or just for their sheer laziness. Sometimes it is just family members who stuck you in a box a long time ago and refuse to see that you are an independent person and not their tool to use whenever they want to, with the excuse that “family” should come first.
NO – YOU come first! If you don’t take care of yourself, no one else will!
There are so many ways We see those we Love being used and abused by others that We love. Those others who would walk all over them, those others who enjoy stealing someone else’s power just so they don’t have to use their own resources.
Be strong; We know you can be, and push back these requests one by one. You don’t have to change your whole world in one day, but you can change it over time by making one choice after another to HONOR YOU, to do for yourself what others would have you do for them, and most of all, by taking back your power from others and putting that energy into your own life.
We know you may feel hesitant or even afraid to look at the situations in your life like this. Look at where you can make the first choice and follow through on what you want to do, consistently and patiently. It will take others time to realize you are serious. They will want to fall back into their pattern of making you take on their responsibility by abdicating your power to them, and they will test your resolve time after time.
Stay strong and be consistent. Don’t waver, don’t give in “just this one time” because that one time is one time too many for you to give away your personal power. Refusing to participate in the situation and take back your power by giving yourself the chance to do what you need to do.
Does your aunt need you to take her to the store but it is not a good time for you? Don’t allow anyone to badger you into doing something for them that hurts you. If someone truly cared about you, they would work cooperatively with you for you both to achieve what needs to be done. They would not demand you drop everything for them nor would they tell you that they are more important than you are.
Maybe this is the first time you ever considered this action to have a choice. Wonderful! You are now growing by looking and analyzing situations and seeing how they are Good for you. Keep doing it! Analyze every request, every demand, every action that others take for granted that you will do and start making changes in your life.
Don’t allow your children to walk all over you and expect you to do everything. There is no such thing as a “super parent” but there are parents who raise children with entitled attitudes. This does not serve your children at all, for in the future they will have to learn the hard lesson that they alone are the one responsible for feeding, clothing, and housing themselves. What will happen to them when you are no longer able to give them everything they desire?
For those relatives who demand you do everything for them, start practicing saying “no” in the mirror. Practice makes perfect. We are with you and We will support you entirely. For those who have co-workers who want you to drop your work to help them do theirs, don’t. You deserve recognition for the work you do and if someone else gets the praise for work you did then you are not serving you, your co-worker, or your employer.
You are special and unique and We Love you and want you to grow to Love yourself unconditionally as well.
Be strong. Be authentic. Be transparent in all you do, for when you live a life of complete honesty that which is inherent within you, your Divine Presence, shall shine forth and greet the Divine Presence in those around you as well. You are each individual on the Human Plane, but when you are returned to the Spiritual Plane you will remember that you all are One.
Respect that; together but separate. Each worthy of living this lifetime to the best of your abilities with your free will choices. Trust that regardless of the situation, when you live openly and honestly you will attract those into your life who live the same way and your life situations will change to reflect that honesty as well. For each deserves to live and be loved and to grow and to change. No one should stagnate when you have a world of experiences to be had!
We are with you! We love you and We are always here – with you and supporting you. Call upon Us when you need Us and We will be with you in an instant.
Blessings to you.
