True power is not physical strength but the Light within you.
Today much of what we see and read about in the media, even the video games are about physical power. Those who are the strongest are have the most money are the most powerful. This is the way in which we are educated so that we value those above honesty, truth, integrity, compassion and love.
The highest empowerment that we can possess comes not from without but from within us. The power of the world is but an illusion that fades with the passing of time or the physical form, but the empowerment of spirit, which brings us to enlightenment and unity last for infinity. To reconnect to the guidance of the Divine, our soul within us, connects us to the greatest power of creation and manifestation that exists. This ability to create benefits all life, not just a few. The guidance it brings to us allows us to move easily without the need to control another, or to take from or make another less, in order for us to manifest our vision.
As I was writing this, I was just reminder by spirit of the book called “The Dream Giver” by Bruce Wilkinson. It is a book about the path to freedom of fulfilling our Divine Mission which is a delightful, insightful and inspiriational tale. It is the journey of a man named Ordinary, who lives in a town called familiar, and how as he moves forth to pursue the Dream he was given, his family, friends and people he encounter all try to stop him.
When we connect to the Divine within us, we connect to the power to overcome the border bullies who would stop us, the fear, doubts and obstacles that come along our path. Just because we care Divinely guided doesn’t mean we won’t have trials and obstacles. However, when they happen as we turn within and meet them with love, and higher wisdom, instead of fear, doubt and a need to control from the ego, we will find we are able to move without more ease.
For as we desire something, our soul and the universe begin to gather what we need to manifest it. The ease, and quickness of the manifestation is based upon our integrity, intent, clarity of focus, and the purity and intensity of emotio that this manifestation will bring into our lives.
The connection to All is within us, and as we strengthen that connection and allow the Love, Wisdom, Truth, and Light of the Creator and Universal Mind to flow through us we connect to Infinite Power and possibility. This energy can then pour forth into the world for the betterment of all life.
Last night there was a program about the work being done by Michelle Obama, Melinda French Gates and Amal Clooney to bring the freedom of education and the pathway for young women to pursue their dreams and manifest them in the world. There are many countries where women are not allowed to get an education and they are trying to change this so that they may become all that they can dream. A key phrase I remember is that they are not empowering the girls, for we must empower ourselves, but that they are providing an opportunity for them to choose to do so.
Even in societies where we can get an education, whether male or female most of us have been programed into self doubt to keep us small. They spoke of self doubt, which is the biggest obstacle programmed into us which can stop us from pursuing and manifesting our dreams. Most societies are built upon a determined structure of living in order to exist in that society. It differs from country to country, and between ethnic, moral, spiritual and political ideologies. We are taugth by parents, teachers, media, and other beings of influence how to think and behave in order to live in our society.
For example in America, we have the American dream. This consists of a job, spouse, family, friends, home, food, car and some kind of pleasure pursuit. If you can click off these boxes you are a success, and the more of them and money you have the more successful you are for money gives you power. Often it doesn’t matter how you obtain the money, as long as you don’t get caught, you are considered a success.
The openess, freedom and joy to simply live in the moment and be at one with All life, is trained out of our children day by day. We learn how to behave to get rewards and not get punished. If we have a dream that seems outside of the box, we are taught to surpress it. If we think differently we are punished or laughed at and to be accepted we change our way of acting, thinking and speaking to fit the norm. We learn to doubt our inner guidance, and our dreams as being fantasy and unrealistic. Little by little the spark of spiritual joy dims in our lives. This doesn’t mean you had an unhappy life, just that there is a part of you that you have surpressed and learned to deny that could bring you infinite joy and possibilities.
Often it is when we reach our golden years, and have the free time to contemplate our lives and dreams we begin to remember. Remember the dream, the joy of anticipation that we had to put aside to live in the designated world of familiar. We might think, but what if I had pursued that dream. Well, it doesn’t matter now, for I am too old. Are you?
The Divine Plan has a way of adjusting itself according to the choices that the participants make in their life. If something is needed immediately, another person who is open and willing will be called forth to fulfill that part of the mission. If it is something that can wait, the plan will be adjusted accordingly. Perhaps that exact dream is no longer needed, or perhaps it is. However, there is always something that needs to be done to help to FREE and ENLIGHTEN the world. You need to free yourself, and make the connection wthin and offer your services. Then you will be shown if your dream is still alive or perhaps an even greater dream can be possible because you are wiser and have more time to dedicate yourself to manifesting the new or updated Dream.
The Dream Giver is always ready to welcome you home with love and open arms.
There is always much to be done for one with an open and willing heart and mind. Remember too as a parent or grandparent, you have the opportunity to help to your children and grandchildren to remain open and connected within their hearts with the Divine, so that they can be all that they came into life to be and to manifest their dream and to be of service to humanity.
When we choose to be a parent, that is a major role in helping to change the world by helping our loved ones to keep an open heart and mind connection to their inner light and guidance. You are guiding the future of humanity, are you doing it from a learned place of societal behavior or from a spiritual level.
True power to change ourselves and the world is within each of us. It is a flame of the Divine within our heart. We can connect to it, nurture it and feed it with love and light or allow the flame to get small, so small we forget it exists. Seek it out, go within, embrace it, and ask for it to guide you and fill you with Light and Love. Then share this Light and Love with others. You don’t need to speak it, just be it and visualize it moving outward into the world and they will feel it.
Your Dream is needed and the power to manifest it exists within you, no matter your age.
There is a scripture in the Christian Bible: Isaiah 11:6
“The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them.”
Why a little child? Because a child is pure of heart. They know not prejudice, fear, hatred, judgment or self doubt. These emotions are taught to them. A child cannot learn Love, compassion, honesty, integrity and truth in a home where it is not lived. Be the example for others, not just your children but the world. It isn’t a burden something you have to do or you will be punished. It is a gift of freedom to be all that you can be without limitations of the physical world systems, but to bring forth the Enlightened world.
In the abundance teachings of Eshter Hicks she uses the word satisfaction. We know within us that which is of the highest good for us because it brings us satisfaction and we don’t have fear, dount or trepidation regarding it. When we can align our thoughts and emotions to that which brings us satisfaction, by making choices that bring us to that feeling, we will find our ability to manifest and to feel empowered in our lives increases. When we find something satisfying and uplifting, we create an energy around us that attracts more. The universe wants us to be joyful and abundant so they help us in that attraction. When we get confused and have doubts, the energy and momentum falls back, until such time as we make a different choice or refocus our energy. The energy of Creation is LOVE. If we stay heart centered with our mind aligned to our heart, we are centered in the energy of creation. The strength of that emotion allows us to call forth that which is needed to manifest our dreams and desires.
Always be clear and aware of what you want and desire to manifest, for it may not be exactly what you expect if you are manifesting from ego instead of an inner connection to your truth and soul. For instance you may ask for more clients, and get so many that you have no free time, or perhaps the clients you get will be demanding and irritating.
Manifesting, Spiritual Mission and Dreams, Empowerment. If you always seek first the Light within to guide you, the course ahead will run more easily. It doesn’t mean you won’t have obstacles or choices, but you will have a true navigator to help you to follow the higher perspective and choices.
I wish for all people to find the path home to inner light and empowerment, which can help them to manifest the Dream given to them as part of their journey of service and enlightenment on Earth.
I am Marguerite
