Personal Power is a condition or state, not a thing? Therefore, no one can take your personal power from you. You can refuse to use your power, but you cannot relinquish it to anyone else. If you’ve feel that you’ve lost contact with your personal power, all you have to do to regain it is:

1) Choose an act, any act. It can be as simple as looking in the mirror, picking up a pen or taking a walk.
2) Decide when the act will begin, how long it will last and when it will end. For instance, if you choose to take a walk, you can decide that you will begin the walk at noon, it will last 5 minutes, and end when the 5 minutes is up.
3) Follow the decision you’ve made to regain personal power!

The Universe never gives you more than you can handle!

If you feel overwhelmed by something in your life, just know that you can handle it. The Universe is precise in what it delivers to us – we are always capable of handling it. If you remember this in times of crisis, the reward or lesson will always come more quickly and easily. Often, we have to be pushed to the limits of what we feel capable of to learn that we are really capable of a lot more. Relax, take a deep breath, and do the next right thing!

That in most creation stories humans are the only ones who must first discover their purpose here before they can begin to achieve their purpose? That means we humans start fifty yards behind the starting gate. What the animals and trees and beings of organic nature do by instinct we have to learn. What we are taught in school, by our parents or by authority figures is not necessarily what we are here to do. Have you ever stopped and thought truly about the reason we are here? What have you discovered about that? We can’t begin to live our purpose until we discover it….hmmm….gives one food for thought, doesn’t it?

That “Everything is happening in the only way it can”? That means that everything in our lives is happening according to our personal level of development. We are always getting the maximum we can get from the Universe based on our inner development. Have you noticed that there are some areas of your life that don’t seem to change much no matter how you try? That’s because you’re trying to change the outer circumstances. Until you change your inner circumstances, though, nothing external can change.

For instance, if you hate your job and you’ve always hated your job, getting a new job won’t help you much. You’ll probably hate that job, too. But if you change the way you feel about your current job – if you can accept where you are at the present moment – your job situation will begin to change without any effort on your part. Job opportunities will begin to come your way.

So when you get frustrated with life remember that everything IS happening in the only way it can. Can’t change what’s going on around you? Then change what’s going on inside you. When you accept where you are at the present moment, you are allowed to move on. Good luck!

That personal power is a state of being and not a “thing”? That means personal power is a condition that you access, not something you gather like fruit from a tree. That also means that someone else cannot steal your personal power. They might steal your thunder but they can’t touch your personal power. Only you have access to your personal power. When you feel disempowered you haven’t lost your personal power – you’ve just stopped accessing it.

Does that make you feel more empowered around people who normally disempower you? It should. No one can take your power – it’s always a choice on your part as to whether you access your own power or not. Chew on that a while and see if changes some of your relationships drastically!

That you have the right to access any information you want in the Universe through divination? You can do any kind of readings on anything or anyone to get information. It’s what you do with the information that’s important. If you follow the Universal laws that govern magical practice and all life (called Rules of the Road) you’ll be fine.

That is you use a properly keyed tarot deck you are actually re-creating a miniature model of the Universe anytime you do a reading? Keying is the process by which you personalize the cards to your energies and create active links between the cards and the Universe.

By the law of “as above, so below,” when you make changes to a tarot reading (such as when you do a tarot spell) you are also making changes in the Universe. Because this can produce such powerful effects always make sure you are following Rules of the Road, the laws that govern karma and responsibility in the Universe.

That magicians and shamans make decisions before they figure everything out? Most people commit to something after they have figured out how to do it. Magically speaking, it’s impossible to access all the information you will need to complete a project or task until you make the base decision to commit to it. That’s why shamans and magicians commit first and figure it out later. The process sounds completely backwards, doesn’t it?

It is. But that’s how the magical world functions. Look back over your life – do you remember any rash decisions you made that turned out wonderfully? That’s an example of how the process really works. In life you have to be willing to work with the unknown, making decisions without all the information. If you trust that you will always get the information you need in the perfect time, you’ll be surprised how smoothly your life works out. Try it – you’ll like it!

That when friendly powers and beings speak to us they often use our own voices? Most of the time when we ask powers and beings (angels, guardians, guides and the like) for help, they don’t speak to us with physical voices or use sounds that we can hear with our ears. They usually speak to us through our thoughts and feelings, using the voices we use when talking silently to ourselves.

So how do we know when spirit guides are speaking to us and when we’re just thinking our own thoughts? By the words and phrases they use, as well as the information they bring us. Powers and beings will use different words and phrases than we would choose when thinking silently to ourselves. They will also give us information we didn’t previously have before. It does take a little practice to distinguish between the advice of friendly guides and our own thoughts. If you’ve been asking the Universe for answers and not been getting them, check in with your own thoughts. Powers and beings may have used your own voice to give you the answer!

That color plays an important part in our lives? Each color produces a specific response in body, mind or Spirit (and sometimes in all three at once). The colors that you wear, the colors in your environment and the colors that surround you can have a deep effect on your mental clarity, spiritual enlightenment, ability to attract resources, worry, fear, anger and much more.

In fact, the color that we dress our babies in has a big effect on what kind of personality they develop and how well they learn. For instance, pastel blue is the color of spiritual enlightenment and understanding, and since most baby boys are dressed in pastel blue they are getting more access to spiritual knowledge and understanding than baby girls. Baby girls, who are often dressed in pink, are under heavy sedation because pink is the color of sedation. Is it any wonder women have had trouble breaking through certain barriers in this society? Look what we dress our baby girls in! Hmmm….food for thought!

That this is a desire driven Universe? Common wisdom says that either love or money makes the world go round but it’s really desire that makes the world (not to mention the Universe) go round.

When you have desire anything and everything is possible. The trick is to hang on to your desire no matter what common sense or logic may tell you. Desire will bring you teachers, guides, resources, help and a kick in the rear when you need it. Desire is what makes dreams come true. If you do nothing more on your Spirit path than keep the flame of your desire alive, you will go further than you ever imagined possible! Good luck!

That appreciation is the missing ingredient in most attempts to create or manifest something? So many people desire so much on this planet yet only a small percentage of those desires actually manifest. Why?

Because most of us don’t know how to appreciate. No, we’re not just offering you old clichés here – it’s an actual part of the scientific process of manifestation. Appreciation is the final step of any manifestation, and no manifestation is complete until you have fully appreciated it.

If you’re ready to move on in your life just appreciate where you are now and all that’s been created thus far. Your appreciation will move you off the square you’re standing on and into greener pastures!
