Ask and it shall be given
The vast majority of mankind currently lives in a world of unconscious co-creation. Many are running on autopilot and are unaware that their inner world (their thoughts, feelings and imagery) is where their creative power resides ( Iyanla, still the boss!)
Yesterday I was reading “Ask and It is Given” by Esther and Jerry Hicks. It is one of the simplest yet most effective pieces that I have read on using your thoughts to manifest the life you desire. I read something totally resonated with me and wanted to share it. Why did it resonate? Well I believe that just “to keep the peace” I give in! Just to avoid what we call in Trinidad “ole talk” I just did what was “normal” but now I know better! The dream inside you is there for a purpose! The light that shines in your soul is a guide not just for yourself but for others and every time you do something contrary to what your soul desires you dim the light! As Nelson Mandela says, it doesn’t serve the world for you to play small!
“You have never enjoyed someone else telling you what to do. You have never enjoyed being dissuaded from your own powerful impulses. But over time, with enough pressure from those who surrounded you who seemed convinced that their practiced way was more valid than your way (and, therefore, ultimately better), you gradually began to release your determination to guide your own life. You often found it easier just to adapt to their ideas of what was best for you rather than trying to figure it out for yourself.
But in all this adapting to your society’s, your family’s, maybe your friends attempts to make you fit in, and in your own attempt to find less trouble, you have unwittingly relinquished your most basic foundation: your total and absolute freedom to create.
You have not given up this freedom easily, however, and, in fact, you can never truly release it, for it exists as the most basic tenet of your very being. Still, in your attempt to release it for the sake of getting along, or in your hopeless resignation that you have no other choice than to give up your powerful right to choose... you have gone crossways to your natural current, and contrary to your very soul.”
