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.
