So right here and now, you have a choice as to what you are going to do. If you don’t give yourself and others a chance, then you’ve already decided your destiny, and it cannot be changed unless you change your mind (provided it’s not too late)… because you and only you can have the final word, as you are the Determining Factor of your life. (You see? Even in the midst of crisis, we can learn that we are more powerful than we may think.)
I realize you must be feeling some very powerful raw emotions right now, and that must be very painful, but the truth of the matter is that you have a will, so you really can control yourself... if you want to. It’s just that your emotions are out of control right now because of the thoughts you have been thinking. Those thoughts produced feelings. Those thoughts arose from your interpretation of life events based on beliefs that you feel deep within, many of which are deep-seated, even unconscious from your past.
Please find some hope in being willing to believe that as bad as things feel right now, there are answers for reversing this, and even rising above it. But it’s going to take a decision from you. And for that, in your own best interests, you will have to control yourself. No one else can do it for you. God put the mind in your head. No one else can help you if you cannot control yourself.
In fact the very fact that you are
reading this page, tells
me that something in you wants to control yourself, and can. Because you are here reading this, and not
out doing the unthinkable. And even if
though doesn’t feel like it right now, you do have the power to keep it
There is an answer.
And if you want to control yourself, you really can. Of course, you may not be at prime
functioning capacity – you may not be able to do a thing for a little
cry, sit and stare, but you can keep yourself from doing harm. If you humble yourself and surrender, God
will give you that grace.
What you do or send out only comes back to you – it’s the Law. And you deserve to win, so do your absolute best to make it something Good.
You may feel angry at or resentful of others, and feel that by hurting them or yourself you are giving them what they deserve, or you get to feel powerful and finally in control. After all, if you couldn’t get control or significance or respect or love or whatever it is that you needed by more pleasant means, you might as well just take it by force, and show them who’s really boss, or by try to cause others to feel responsible and guilty, right? Wrong.
When you seek to hurt others, you are
first, and doing damage to your own soul. And
when you turn the anger inwards and hurt
yourself, you are only
compounding the problem, and often end up regretting it later.
Yes, I know it hurts. You may even feel a little crazy, and I truly can empathize with you, but you will benefit most if you dig deep, cry, scream, beat the bed to vent, yet do no harm. For the harm that you do can only come back to you. In some form or another, it will have to, even if it’s in the form of your own guilt, shame or further angst, chaos and disharmony. That is spiritual law. Looking for the answer by expressing negativity outside of yourself only creates more negativity within you, and brings rejection or consequences from those outside of you.
Instead call on your God believing
that he loves you, He
understands your pain, even your dark unspeakable places, but that He
with you and is there for you should you humble yourself and receive
I know you may not feel
Him there, but He's right there deep inside of you, waiting for you to
get tired of fighting, tired of running, tired of complaining, tired of
trying to work it out through your ego and mental reasoning.
Waiting for you to turn within, receive forgiveness, love, healing,
So call on Him. And then still yourself within, seek composure in stillness, and master the art of self-control.
And once you’ve chosen to control
yourself, it would
probably be really beneficial to seek out some caring assistance in
of therapy to start sorting out your beliefs, clearing stuck energy
and reframing situations that would otherwise trigger emotional
instability. It’s always good to
acknowledge our core
needs. And sometimes, we really could
use a hand up.
might be a good place to start.
The books in the Recommended tab of this site will also be VERY insightful, and should open up doors of wonder, beauty, hope and power within you. Also, if you haven't already, I would also encourage you to start reading my blog, I Wanna Get Free: Heal Your Life.
Reclaim your power. Start claiming self-control. I’ve found it helpful to decree and declare that I am in control of my beliefs, thoughts and actions. That is what real power is in life.
“Easier said than done,” you say. Perhaps, but it starts with a mindset, and
going within to heal your beliefs and thoughts. When we control
your own spirit, and
fill our souls
with only good things, and when know how to yield and bend with the
storm and be transformed, rather than fight it and be broken, all the
still keeping our mind and beliefs on the certainty of reaching our
good, then our entire life is guided along constructive paths.
We live in an intelligently ordered universe. That is self-evident, or it seems the universe would have self-destructed by now. So, if God is omniscient (all-knowing and all science or knowledge), omnipotent (all-powerful and all potential) and omnipresent (all-present and present in all), then that ever-present knowledge and all-powerful potential exists right where you are.
“So then how come I can’t see it?” Well everything has a vibration. When you’re in tune with a high vibration, then the things vibrating at that higher frequency come naturally to you. But when we’re in crisis, our energy is all confused. When you’re vibrating at a lower frequency, the things vibrating at a higher frequency can’t get to you, nor can you see them clearly.
That’s what happens when we feel
things are really, really
bad. We’re living in the Hell of our
experience. It’s a whole different
realm than the one where things are harmonious and flow smoothly. But that being the case, however, at least
we know there is an answer somewhere.
That’s why sometimes someone else can see potential solutions to our challenges when to our own vision at the time, all may be black. And sometimes it takes allowing someone who is vibrating at a higher frequency than the one we’re currently in, but who can relate to where we currently are, to inspire us, encourage us, help us see things in a new light, thereby helping us lift ourselves up.
Be encouraged, be open to seeing things in a better light, and in time, this too shall pass.
Every crisis is an opportunity for
transformation. Many times, when
situations come to a head
in life, and the pressure cooker is about to explode, as much as we
hate it at
the time, it might be just what our soul needed in order to come to a
where we realize that something we’re doing is just not working – a
knowing that we can’t do it properly in our own ego strength – the
place of surrender
to the grace of a higher power, or a higher way of being – the place of
humility and willingness to get to the root of our problems instead of
mad at everything around us.
“‘Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts.” - Zechariah 4:6 (NKJV)
Therefore since Life is only knows how
to be productive,
while others in life may seem to be against us, Life Itself is for us. So it helps to view the drama others seem to
create for us in a different light. Learn
something from it. Know
that underneath the drama and trauma, Life is trying to mold you.
The more you move in harmony with it, seeking and believing the good,
the easier it becomes.
"The curse causeless
shall not come."
It's so hard to make sense of this at times, but situations arise for a reason. There is always an underlying cause. When you make the situation your friend, and become open to discovering what you can learn from it, or what flaw, weakness or error this “accursed” situation has come to point out to you, and to help you learn, correct or overcome, then you are working with Life, and you will come through this trial better for the wear and tear. Now instead of being anyone’s victim, you are becoming conscious, and you are in the driver’s seat and learning to master yourself.
But when we assume that people and
life are against us, and
we continue to fight the process, we never learn, and eventually it
overpower us. Don’t let it break
you. Move with it, and let it transform
you instead. Even when people truly do
act against you, when you view the situation in a different light, and
with the situation internally, you can set the sails, and let it take
you need to go.
"But does that mean that those who did
evil against me will just get away with it?" Well, first, it
helps to be aware that sometimes we take offense when there was none
intended, and that is a function of our own unresolved issues. It
is what we see and perceive through the tinted sunglasses of our own
On the other hand, if you were the
target of evil deeds, God knows
what is in the hearts and minds of others. As we mentioned
earlier, the Law of Life is precise, and although we may not always
understand it, the Law will balance everything out. If you try to
do it, you will only throw your own energy off. By avenging
yourself, you circumvent the karma that would have boomeranged back to
your enemy, create your own bad karma which will come
back to you, and make the situation worse than if you left it
As they say, "Karma's a *****."
Now is a good time to decide to start renewing your mind. On this site, in the Freedom and Transformation sections, and on the blog site I will be erecting, we will discuss this more. But in the meantime, know that everything begins in mind.
To change anything you’ve been creating, you have to first change your mind. “Well, Duh. Hello, uh yeahhh!” But as elementary as that statement sounds, all truths are parallel, so it works on many levels. Let’s put it this way. To change anything (or any situation) you’re creating (unconsciously though it may be), you have to first change your mind.
Since you are made in the image of
God, you are the made of
the very same creative spirit that God is since “he breathed his Life
man”. God’s thoughts and words do not
return to him void, but accomplish the things whereto he sends them. In like manner, your thoughts and words
harden into actions and facts in and around you. Your
whole belief system presses its energy out into manifestation in your
Yes, I know that’s a mouthful, and if you haven’t heard it before, it could sound like a bit much. There’s time for that later. For now, just remember, “garbage in, garbage out”. Therefore, focus on everything positive that you find inspiring good and encouraging. And seek as much understanding as you can to help you clarify your life.
You have also got to get your hands on the book, "This Thing Called You" by Ernest Holmes. You will see yourself, your potential and your world in a whole new brighter light. It's an older book as well, but I've found the oldies to really be solid. They really are the "goodies".
Hang tight. You are not alone. And if you believe in God, and can believe that he loves you in spite of your misdeeds, will forgive you for them, and is willing to lead you if you are willing to be open and follow, you can choose to rest in his love and in that knowledge. I’ve found that that helps tremendously.
... and CALL somebody if you have to!
