The speed with which decisions are made by you is an indication of which part of yourself you are listening to. So many times the thoughts used to direct your life and monitor your activities are thoughtless regurgitations of things you were taught by your elders in a very different time.
Habit is the reason so many of us end up unhappy. It sort of takes over and replaces conscious choice with behavior that does not serve you or help to attain any of your goals.
Habits are a form of addiction and we continue them not because they bring us any pleasure but because we cannot seem to stop.
What does it take to end a behavior that, if you were thinking clearly, you would not engage in? Habits are broken only when something better shows up – when you have replaced them with something you’d rather do.
This seems so straightforward yet it is not. The key is to find something that yields a more desirable result, or gets you something you deeply long for. Reminders are necessary, as well as support.
It helps to talk about the habit you are attempting to change. Words are creative. So many of us miss that aspect of the creative process and keep our most cherished dreams a secret. We harbor them as if speaking them aloud would take away their specialness.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Speak about the things you wish for – to anyone who will listen. As scripture says, “In the beginning was the Word”.
Words are a powerful creative force. You have not been told enough about them. Saying things again and again, habitually, only reinforces some part of your life you are most likely not enjoying.
Phrases like “I can’t ________”, “This never works”, “I’m too _____” “It’s my bum leg or my bad ear or my weak eye” only reinforces a physical condition that may not be serving your life’s goals.
We’ve grown up thinking that complaints like this are just the facts, and are harmless. It is time to understand how effective words are. Advertising is a trillion dollar industry and it is blasted into your ears at every turn. It seems passive and harmless yet annoying, when in fact it is a creative bit of control and is affecting your life in a very real way. What you hear registers on some level and you make no choice about it; you are accepting it as truth.
Advertising reinforces ideas around illness, weakness, disease, beauty, success, fear and strength that are sitting in your psyche for the most part unchallenged. If you don’t give thought to what you hear on a continual basis, you are more likely than not going to repeat whatever it is telling you in your own life.
Choose carefully which words you surround yourself with and those that come out of your own mouth. Words are real, and effective manifestors. Even without intent they create your life – merely by repetition.
All of life is a creative act. It is your masterpiece. The colors in your pallet are many. Thoughts, words and actions that are spoken, heard, felt and witnessed all work together to create your everyday. Once you are alert and aware of the way they mix together you can alter the hue. This takes consciousness and everyday awareness. It is not necessary to stop, but to start. The focus on stopping only brings that thing, (the thing you are attempting to stop), forefront in your mind, creating more of it.
Start to speak always with purpose and you’ll watch your life play out exactly as you’ve planned. Listen. Appreciate the power in the word. This is a power you hold right now.
You are the One you’ve been waiting for.
It’s taken 150 years. On January 1, 1863 Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation and “proclaimed all those enslaved (in Confederate territory) to be forever free, and ordered the Army (and all segments of the Executive branch) to treat as free all those enslaved.” (Wikipedia) The thirteenth amendment, ratified in 1865, declared slavery illegal in the United States. On December 1, 1955 Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on the bus to a white passenger. Martin Luther King gave his “I have a dream” speech on August 28, 1963. Barack Obama was elected President of the United States on November 4, 2008.
To quote Rosa Parks: "People always say that I didn't give up my seat because I was tired, but that isn't true. I was not tired physically, or no more tired than I usually was at the end of a working day. I was not old, although some people have an image of me as being old then. I was forty-two. No, the only tired I was, was tired of giving in."
It is 2013 and still we are slaves. We the people are tired of giving in. Slavery is slavery and what was true for the plantation owners (the Cabal) in the 1800’s is true for the bankers, world leaders and elite (the Cabal) right now. Think about it. As D. indicates here, understand what lengths they will go, to keep us slaves to their system. It is a sweet deal.
Their lives are built around it. They’ve had generations to plan this and although their actions may be predictable, they are tenacious and determined. They will not give up. Change to the slavery system threatens life as they know it. We will not get anywhere with combat. Our best and most powerful agent for change is to create something entirely new.
We may have just woken up to this corruption, yet we are deeply familiar with struggle, debt, loss and illness. We’ve seen enough of what is criminal and life draining – it’s time to focus elsewhere.
We’ve remembered the power of our thoughts; it is time to ramp it up a bit. For certainly there is not one among us who has not thought about free, not dreamt of prosperity, or not imagined their own vitality. Lately, in contrast to our current life, we think about little else.
Yet what do we talk about? Is it the good stuff or the struggle? Six years ago began a “No Complaints” campaign. The goal was, and is, a complaint free world. Bracelets were sold and the idea is that you switch wrists with every negative outburst. Eventually you’ll have trained yourself to stop complaining.
Now, to fill in all those empty sentences… In the beginning was the Word. The Word – an utterance, a sound, an audible vibration. This is the key to the kingdom – the very tool of creation. The Word started it all. The Word is needed now, to start it again. Pick a word, a phrase, a mantra – and speak it out loud. Say it in your bathroom, your car, on the walk to the train. Say it. Speak it. Give it voice. The world was created with The Word. It will Be again.
We are creators. This is what we Do. The “owners” know the power of words. Hence we have mandatory schooling and mainstream media. We’ve been forced to recite their words when we were young, so we’d give up everything to their cause when we grew up.
Not today. Today we have our own cause. Freedom. Sovereignty. Prosperity. Say these words or choose your own. Yet begin with the truth – “I AM.” Because YOU ARE. Nothing else out ranks you – not a person. Not a corporation. Say it and feel it. “I AM.” Get into it. Play music that stirs your soul and speak your truth. “I AM Free.” “I AM Love.” “I AM Prosperous.” “I AM Worthy.” “I AM Strong.” “I AM Vital.” “I AM Wise.” “I AM.”
There is no other. There is us. We are the One we’ve been waiting for.
WE ARE the world. WE ARE the children. Sounds like our song.
