One truth that transcends the creation stories of The Bible, The Popol Vuh, The Epic of Gilgamesh, and the Atra Hasis...the spoken word was (is) used to create.
"The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit." Proverbs 18:21 NIV
What a huge statement! That is reminding you have the power of creation in your hands (mouth) what you speak into your life WILL BE!
Yes, you are a Creator!
I'm not speaking of the name it and claim it idea...no, rather the truth that your self-talk along with agreements you made with words others have spoken over you creates your world.
In an earlier post, I asked you to make a running list of what your best life looks like, and if things were holding you back from that... what were they,
It was cool to hear that some of you are in life's sweet spot, that is so awesome! Others of you said you are on your way toward that but still have "stuff" to resolve which is also awesome because you see the work that needs to be done...honestly, I'm with you constantly working on an upgrade!
I retired in April of 2021 and moved to the beautiful Coast of Oaxaca, Mexico...off to our perfect life. All of a sudden I wasn't having much fun at all... the more quiet time I took for meditation the more a beast I had buried was rearing its head but I couldn't see the root of my issue!
I was stuck, but I wholeheartedly believe The Creator of All will bring whatever is needed to help shift me...in this case, I was introduced to a local Reiki healer that has a unique gift...whether you want to call it prophesy, insight, woo-woo I don't care. We didn't discuss anything she just felt or heard things and spoke them out. For me, it was an extreme shortcut if you will...see the root of my continual dysfunction...an abandoned inner child.
In my youth I watched my folks downsize, selling the family farm as the family business, a hardware store, failed, and then as they both fought cancer and died...Dad when I was 11 and Mom at 13.
Through all of that my heart of hearts closed...I made an agreement I was not going to feel abandoned again and my Ego did its thing "protecting me" which means I kept people at a distance...in all my relationships...I couldn't trust to let them in...all because I didn't properly grieve and feel those losses.
So my shadow work began...
I spent time feeling those losses...it was messy with a lot of journaling that brought powerful exchanges!
I wrote letters to my parents and my inner child pouring out my feelings...taking care of what needed to be done to bring healing and burnt them in my own fire ceremony. Requesting my ancestors prayers and encouragement from the beginning of my clan...and asking The Creator of All to fill my heart with love, raise my vibration, and bring Devine guidance and assistance.
Those letters were handcrafted prayers...I purposefully chose each word to bring the ultimate truth of the Creators love for me and Her desire for me to ascend to the highest best version of myself.
I can tell you the freedom, amazing peace, and an inner-child that is healthy was created...bringing my 'salvation' through those crafted prayers that the Devine within responded to.
Co-creating is our birthright...Listen to and take control of your self-talk!
Pay attention to what triggers you...that is a red flag and a great place to continue your inner journey
Don't wait for someone to come along...forgive what needs to be forgiven, get angry if you need to...choose to take control of your life and become the hero of your story!
