Imagine if everyone would say, my life is my job? I am the CEO of my service organization and I am agreeing to everything that I am allowing. So you don't blame your partner anymore. You don't blame your kids, your parents, your teachers, your doctor; you don't blame your circumstances. You say, "I take full responsibility."
Statement of Intention:
I've decided that I am going to take complete,
ultimate responsibility for my life.
I'm not ever again going to blame
somebody else for where I am,
for how I 'm feeling, or for what's happening to me.
Your Power Source
You know that you are on this Earth to do something, to actualize your talent, and that you are about the business of doing that something and giving the gifts of your talent. Authentic power means to use your power. Get excited about your power to bring ease into your life and the lives of those you touch. Know that what you are doing teaches others to do the same.
And just as a whole world full of electricity will not light a house
unless the house itself is prepared to receive that electricity.
This is the importance of authentic power. Authentic power is your "light switch"—it is your prepared place to receive the electricity to light up any darkened area of your world.
If we try turning on an electric iron and it does not work, we look to the wiring of the iron, the cord, or the house.
We do not stand in dismay before the iron and cry, "Oh, electricity, please come into my iron and make it work!"
We realize that while the whole world is full of that mysterious power we call electricity, only the amount that flows through the wiring of the iron will make the iron work for us.
-Agnes Sanford, The Healing Light
The same principle is true of this creative energy of MasterMinding. The whole universe is full of it, but only the amount of it that flows through our own beings will work for us.
When we resist—or forget —or don't make time to sit ourselves down and formulate weekly MasterMind goals and requests we are essentially cutting off our connection to source energy and our connection to our authentic self.
Prepare to Receive That Flow of Electricity
With each MasterMinding session you are preparing to receive that flow of electricity and in that you are choosing to become more and more connected to your innate power. In the act of setting forth your requests, you are adjusting your decisions and perceptions and therefore, you are preparing to receive.
When our electric lights work partially or not at all, we know that the lack of power is not in the universal and infinite and eternal flow of electricity in the universe, but in the wiring that connects us with that flow.
When Edison had tried some hundreds of times to find a wire that could transmit a continuous flow of electricity, and had failed some hundreds of times, he did not say, "it is not the will of electricity to shine continuously in my wire." He tried again. He believed that it was in the will, that is, in the nature, of electricity to produce this steady light. He concluded, therefore, that there was some adjustment to the laws of electricity that he had not yet made, and he determined to make that adjustment.
In our weekly MasterMinding, we like Edison, are simply seeking to find the wire that connects us with the flow of electricity to produce a steady light in the problematic situations we want to change and in that, we understand that we may need to make adjustments in our thinking so we can be receptive to the powerful healing solutions that want to come through us.
So, get "wired" and explore our inherent power. Let's MasterMind!
If you are interested in MasterMinding to promote your services or product effectively, how to attract more business and more money (or how to get people you are working with to do the same), understand this: you can inundate yourself with tons of work that is endless. You can bury yourself in work that produces little, except increased levels of stress in your relationships plus added health and weight issues ...OR you can learn how to formulate MasterMind Intentions and Requests through my MasterMinding 101 Online Course!
