This is an automatic writing that I did a few years ago. I had to cut it from the book I am writing because it just didn’t fit in the flow of the book. I cringed over deleting this beautiful reminder of the power of our stories and the ability to shift our stories to empower our lives from the book but I can give it a home here.
You are not your stories. They are just reflections that of how you think about yourself and your life. You are not the snapshots frozen in time you tell of yesterday. Look to your past and notice where you have left part of your soul behind—any story you tell of not being whole. You’ve given your power to an event that no longer exists. Today it is just a story which you give power to. Forgive yourself, forgive the other. Call your soul back with love. Move on.
There comes a point when you have to choose. Will you continue to play the recordings of the scared self? “I can’t. I don’t know how. Fix it for me! She or he hurt me!” Or will you own your sacred connection and ask that everything that is in the way of your power to create be removed from your consciousness?
Will you know that the moment of fear is just an opportunity to move into your light?
Will you decide that your pain is not a punishment but an opening through which you can know yourself and the Divine within you?
How will you determine the value of your life? By a bank account and a list of accomplishments or by the openness of your mind and heart to the wonder pure light and love?
Be. Live your life. Own your light, your power, your presence and be that miraculous being–evolving and creating. Your most sacred heart calls to you. Following its callings. This alone is your goal and purpose.
It is a decision, a commitment in this moment right now. That’s all, nothing more. Decide the stories you will live by. Decide Now.
Is there any place you need to shift a story? I found one or two of my mine that could use some tweaking. Are you aware of a dis-empowering story you tell yourself? Could you decide now to shift it? Where can we, as part of the collective consciousness, decide to tell a higher story for the world?
