True empowerment is a function of Being rather than a feature of intellectual thought. The latter places us in a space where will, struggle and often conflict reside. The former embraces ease and positively impacts all facets of our lives.
Our subtle energy is the vehicle of spirit and offers a different level of empowerment. Conceptual knowledge is not enough to turn desire into reality; intellectual understanding is only the first step to conscious creation. The most powerful tools and techniques for the materialization of our thoughts are those that move us into a state of BEING.
Methods for Empowerment
In Chapter 8 of 12 Keys for Life and Self-Mastery we explore methods that lead to true empowerment. These methods allow you to take energy from the realm of thought and transform it through feeling into reality. Using these methods and developing the qualities discussed will help you enhance your creative power and expand your self-mastery.
When we are in harmony with the universe, creation flows as a natural result. The mind “laser focuses” as we master the challenge of energetically bringing our heart and mind into alignment and harmony with the higher frequencies of creative power. This coherence is an important factor in health, well-being as well as in conscious creation. The topics covered in this session are significant, as they promote coherence and whole body integration in a peaceful blending of body, mind and spirit.
Empowerment and the Impact of Thought and Emotion
Thoughts, emotions and feelings of all types are a major part of our human experience. They (along with free will and judgment) differentiate us from animals and other life forms.
As humans, we have a wide range of emotions. We are meant to feel. If we are to be healthy, fully express our authentic nature and bring the best of ourselves to the world, then we must know how to let emotions move fluidly and easily through our systems and not repress them or get stuck in them!
Knowing how to work positively with all our emotions builds our energy and helps us move more rapidly and simply toward the lives we desire. We hold memory all throughout our body-mind no experience escapes our notice. Our life experience is imprinted through our energy and nervous system into our biochemistry and into the cells and organs of our body.
Empowerment, Energy and Experience
Thoughts and feelings affect the energy throughout all our systems, but perhaps most important is how they connect deeply in the heart and help shape our experience of the world. Our thoughts and feelings are two primary ways we manage our energy, but they don’t necessarily always work in unison. We are very capable of thinking one thing and feeling another. We can “know” something in our mind and experience it a totally different way in our heart and body.
Cellular memory is imprinted more through how we feel about something than through how we think about it or how we rationalize it. As a result, we have the “feeling police” deep inside: the body knows your truth! This is why it is so critical to clear the patterns and beliefs of the past not because we are bad or have sinned and need to set our records straight, but because through our lack of knowledge and awareness, we have created obstacles that block our health, well-being and happiness.
