The path to freedom is long and winding with many obstacles. Everyone’s journey will be different, there is no set blue print or guide book. There is simply your way. And with your way comes a unique set of challenges. Your challenges.
There is no freedom without responsibility, this in a sense is the first step on the way. When you can take full responsibility and refuse to blame others you take a huge step into personal power.
Instead we blame other people, things and situations and give away our personal power. It's seen most clearly in those that judge and criticise, always an excellent lawyer for their own actions and a tyrannical judge when it comes to others. Never taking responsibility. Never looking within.
It is all there within waiting to be discovered for those with eyes courageous enough to see it.
The deep unconscious roots of many behaviours make it easy to blame others. The mother, the father, the teacher, the government.
I have also seen many blame the planets… the moon, mercury retrograde. We give our power away all the time.
Am I saying ignore astrology, dismiss your upbringing and how the world has influenced you? NO.
Accept it, observe it, be aware of it.
Now exercise the power of your own will, your power to choose. What will you be today, what words will leave your mouth, what reality will you create for yourself.
Everyday you will be dragged in all different directions as the world tries to tell you what is important. It is your job to say NO, this is what is important to me. This is what I choose.
I have seen many blame the spirits, blame the energies, their parents, their business partners, NO. All you see comes from within. We simply dance the demons out of their closet to be seen within the cold light of day. It is only then that they can be released. We carry our shit everywhere, through lifetimes, aeons and dimensions and into every situation where it festers under the surface and drives our life. We need not. Make it conscious, take a stroll into your pain and take a look at what's waiting for you on the other side.
It's by no means easy, choosing, accepting... taking responsibility, but it may well be our one and only get of jail card.
Own you shit. Find your freedom.
