It’s Time to Take Our Power Back!

I’m sure a lots of you have heard about the changing energies we are experiencing.  As a contributing author, I would like to share with you a portion of my chapter titled “It’s Time to Take Our Power Back” from the book “R*eve*olution – The Return of the Divine Feminine” – compiled by Denye Robbins.  It’s comprised of 40 global women leaders who share their stories of passion, purpose, love and service.

We are coming out of an era of fear, force, control, suppression and separateness; and we are entering the era of love, flow, letting go, allowing and unification.  We are leaving the era of trusting the external: governments, systems, money, authority and television; and we are entering the era of trusting the internal: ourselves, our inner guidance systems, our spirits, our hearts and our wisdom.

May I share with you that it is not governments who govern.  It is you who governs.  It is not money that is your resource.  It is you who is your resource.  It is not laws that guide you.  It is your spirit that guides you. It is not some agency that is your authority.  It is your heart that is your authority.  It is not television but your wisdom that is the source of quality knowledge.  It is all in the power of your spirit!

If you think that nothing is what it seems, that’s because it isn’t.  We have allowed doctors to be the authority on our health, yet it is you and only you who can heal yourself.  We look to change things on the outside, yet the only place we can change things is on our inside.  We have created computers to have less paper and more time, yet we have more paper and less time.  We look to money to solve our problems and look to love as the source of all problems, yet it is love that sustains and heals us, not money.  We spent our life accumulating material possessions at the expense of foregoing valuable experiences, yet we get to take with us when we die only our experiences and none of our possessions.  We have substituted caring for being politically correct.  We have created quick fixes and more problems.  We are the country of most freedoms and yet we incarcerate the most people of all countries.  We preserve our food to last longer, yet we have shortened our health.  In a world where Twinkie has come to outlive us, we live poorly and die well; well preserved, that is.  We have created drugs to not feel, yet we hurt more.  We have created more laws and less responsibility.  We have rejected nature because of its imperfections, and with our perfect chemicals we have created imbalances that are destroying us, failing to realize that we are not above but rather a part of nature.

We keep lowering our educational standards to make ourselves look better instead of increasing our standards and teaching our youth more.  We want to change the world, and the only thing we can change is ourselves.  We start wars trying to teach peace.  We have big healthcare systems and more sick people.  We spend millions of dollars on medical research and have no cures.  We have fast means of communication, fax machines and mobile phones, and no time to talk to our kids.  We have money and no value.  We have food and no nourishment.  We have medicine and no health.  We have more jails and less functioning families.  We have more information and less sense.  Isn’t it maybe time for change?  Well, it isn’t government who is going to change things.  We are!  You and I!

So, how do we change things?  It has to start with each one of us individually.  The only thing we can change is ourselves.  Understand that we can’t fully move into the new energies of love, personal power, flow, oneness and allowing until we release the old energies we’ve been living; fear, force, control, suppression and separateness.  We carry the old energies in our unresolved experiences.  So long as we carry them in our spiritual energy, we keep creating with them.  In order to release them, we must heal and integrate our unresolved experiences.  Only then can we create something different.

Be open to everything and attached to nothing…

How do we achieve such spiritual freedom and bliss to be open to everything and attached to nothing?  What are attachments anyway and why do we have them?

Attachments are things we can’t do without or have a difficult time letting go.  For example, we can be attached to a certain outcome, in which case we are attached to a certain expectation.  We could be attached to shopping or to being in relationship.  We could be attached to having a routine or to having drama in our life.  We could be attached to an idea, the idea that everything must be in order before we can move on to what we really want to do, for example.  We could be virtually attached to just about anything.  Much like the toddler who is attached to his blanket, we seek safety in our attachments.  Addictions are no more than very obvious and severe attachments.

It is in our state of separateness we seem to need attachments.  By “state of separateness” I mean the space we live in where we are separated or disconnected from spirit, our source and the spiritual mother womb.  Being connected with source is the place where we know we are taken care of, we are safe, we are loved and abundance is ever present.  When we are in this space of being connected to source we feel no worries and no fear.  Thus it is in the space of disconnect where we are so desperate to hold onto something, … anything and we have the need for attachments and addictions.

We have entered the era where we are moving away from being separate and disconnected to being connected and united with source and each other.  We are moving away from fear and toward love.  We are moving away from suppression and toward self-expression.  But how does one as an individual move from the place of feeling disconnected to feeling connected and loved?  How do we move away from being attached to things?  How do we move away from our addictions?

First it would help to understand that whenever we experience a trauma, particularly pain, emotional, physical or mental we disconnect from a piece of ourselves.  The more we spiritually heal such traumas and pain, including past life, the more we re-connect with ourselves and source.  It is in the combination of spiritual healing and growth that we can achieve the connection we desire and the spiritual freedom of being open to everything and attached to nothing.
