A long time ago, I was told on a couple of occasions by various fortune tellers and divination specialists , that in a past life, I abused POWER. I had “tricky” little business deals with other people’s money. I was the type of person the neighborhood was happy to see leave. I was the person who was unkind, devious, underhanded, unscrupulous, and manipulative, not to mention perverse, unethical and egotistical. Whew!
That’s a tall list for anybody, in any lifetime or many lifetimes!!!
In this lifetime, having an edge with Witchcraft, Introspection, Being Aware enough to realize that ,that was me then, and how important it is for me to remember the way I was and correct the mistakes of the past, Now. I have been working on this for all of my years. I am not the monster that I was then, but like most people, I have my faults and internal negativity and “dark side”. We all have some kind of “skeletons in our closet”, so to speak. My suspicion is that you have some work to do with this also.
This challenge of not abusing power has come to the forefront in my life ,lately, and I recently started to dig a little deeper into the subject. It came to me that in order to make amends to my past and enlighten others about my plight and help in their quests for Right Action in their lives. I believe that understanding our Personal Power is essential..

Power as defined in the Webster’s Dictionary is
a (1): ability to act or produce an effect (2): ability to get extra-base hits (3): capacity for being acted upon or undergoing an effect
b: legal or official authority, capacity, or right
a: possession of control, authority, or influence over others
b: one having such power; specifically: a sovereign state
c: a controlling group : establishment —often used in the phrase the powers that be
darchaic: a force of armed men
echiefly dialect: a large number or quantity
a: physical might
b: mental or moral efficacy
c: political control or influence
Etc., Etc., Etc. (To the 100th Power…)
That’s all well and good but I’m referring to is the Personal Power we all have. What are we made up of in our Bodies, Minds, and Spirits? How do our choices about ourselves and other’s affect the Universe? How do we think? Deliberately, on purpose or by default? It is said the we have enough power and energy within us to light up a whole cities for days. If that is so, then we owe it to ourselves to be a Positive force in our Universe, in EVERYTHING WE DO, and not a Negative one. (Although Negativity is a part of our Universe, too. It‘s the Contrasting element to decide upon.)
If everything in the Universe is Energy, from the tiniest to the mightiest, than everything counts. Our words, beliefs, actions, attitudes, thoughts and opinions etc., all count. Everything Counts! The Vibration’s we send out from ourselves affects the entire Universe. Talk about Power!!!
So, why is it so hard for us to be Good all of the time. How is it that most of us are our own worst enemies and stand in our own way from the Love, Light , Abundance, and more, that we so desperately, and richly deserve? Why are we so hard on ourselves. Do we not care and Love ourselves enough to use Power constructively instead of destructively? As one Law of Attraction speaker once said, “Wouldn’t NOW be a good time to change”? And , How?
Here is what I discovered. It takes Practice. A Lot of Practice! And Patience. And you have to be Ruthless in your Consistency of Practice. Calm in your Patience. You have to WANT to change for the better, and affect Positive Vibrations everywhere you go, at any time, to any person, and most of all, to yourself. It’s a matter of Being the person that you really want to be, a better person, and not stopping or allowing your smaller Self (Ego) to take over and side track your efforts. It’s about being a Light unto yourself and the World around you. The cure for Procrastination is Action. The cure from Fear and Doubt, is Love. Embrace you Fear’s with Love. The key to Ignorance is Knowledge. The key to Sickness is Well Being. The key for Loneliness is Right Relations. The cure for Powerlessness or Misuse of Power, is Awareness and Intentional Positive Energy . What and How do you desire to become more of ? Good? Bad? Light? Dark? Something in between? Positive or Negative, it’s a Choice. Do the right thing for your Soul growth and Spirit. I AM.
It’s as easy as breathing when you Practice it for even a little while.
