We invite you to join us for the next 7 weeks, for 10 minutes a day to reclaim your power using LiberatingTouch® and EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques). The plan is to keep it simple and share effective practical exercises to do each week. For those of you that would like some background information to LiberatingTouch and Energy Psychology, I suggest checking out our website www.emotionalhealthcentre.com for the Introductory Manuals on EFT and LiberatingTouch. For the rest of you, let’s dive in:
Important Note before we begin: By participating in this program you have agreed to the guidelines, disclaimer and release agreement and have accepted full responsibility for using them. Thank you.
This program is not the definitive recipe to reclaiming power, but an exploration of infinite possibilities.
“We are not victims; we are powerful beyond measure. Even if we forget this, even if circumstance, memory, thoughts keep us replaying the roles of a victim we can always wake up from this trance of material identification; we can reconnect to the Truth. We can shine the light of awareness, dispelling the darkness of our fears and illuminating the infinite power of the Heart. We can shake off the lies of powerlessness like a lion shakes his mane and roar with the certainty that we are Divine.”
One of the preliminary steps towards Self-realisation is to work towards the infinite power within man. This infinite power is also known as the divine Cosmic power. What is this Cosmic power? The Cosmic power pervades the entire universe and is not different from that in man. The sun derives its energy from this Cosmic source. It is the same Cosmic source that accounts for the power of the human mind and the marvellous power of the eye to see the most distant stars. Even though invisible, it is like electricity flowing in the cables which is only apparent when one switches on the light, appearing dimmer or brighter depending on the wattage of the light bulb. This boundless power is recognised and exercised by each one according to the level of his/her development. Just as the same electrical energy is used for a variety of purposes, for example, heating, lighting etc., likewise, the divine Cosmic energy in human beings is used by different individuals for varied purposes. This energy is latent in all beings. How do you manifest this divine Cosmic energy? You have to start with building up your own personal power.
This is the power you use to accomplish your daily living and any other pursuits or endeavours imbued with your intellectual knowledge or physical strength. Our lives are influenced by beliefs and conditions that help or hinder us at every turn, even though we are not always aware that we have created them ourselves. These beliefs and conditions are the cause of self-sabotage and no one is to blame, even though we consistently point our ‘fingers of blame’ at others. We have created by consistent, and usually negative, behaviour patterns, filters within our mind that cause us to behave in a way not consistent with our own truth. For example, we may lie because the ‘filter of fear’ makes us shy away from the consequences of our actions. This in turn adds more energy to fear and robs us of our self-confidence and we lose our power. We have many such conditions we have created from childhood that have taken power away from us.
Most of us believe that we have finite power i.e. intellectual or physical. So, we work within the constraints of our belief system. How do we recognise that our belief systems are false? If we have an experience that runs counter to our own belief systems, would we still hold that to be true? For example, there are instances where a mother lifted a car or other heavy object to save her child trapped underneath it. In normal circumstances, even a very strong man would be unable to lift it. The ability of the mother to accomplish that feat is purely the result of the suspension of her belief system that it was beyond her ability. We have conditioned ourselves to believe that we are weak and powerless, but we are infinitely more powerful than we dare believe. When we come into our personal power, we also become true to our SELF. Then, we won’t feel the need to control anyone, as TRUTH need not defend itself.
We need to reclaim our personal power this will help us recognise that we are not confined to time and space, we are neither the body nor the thoughts that come and go. This self-empowerment helps open our awareness to the Cosmic power within us. We are limitless consciousness experiencing a dream born of infinite love emerging from Truth.
Here is the first practical exercise:
Week 1: Admitting where we are at.
Once we can admit to ourselves how, where and when we feel powerless (feel ashamed, guilty, helpless, attached) we can take positive action. This week we focus on admitting to ourselves the mistakes we have made, the mess we are in, the habits we hold onto, all the things that rob our power and yet we can forgive, love and embrace ourselves. The ‘admitting’ is great. It works like a truth or dare game (it reflects one of the foundational principles of EFT – saying it like it is) and the sentiment, “I can’t help but love myself”, seems to always bring a smile to the surface. Play with this exercise using EFT or LiberatingTouch for 7 to 10 minutes every day for one week.
The main phrases that we will practice with are:
Admittedly ________________ (fill in the blank) ______________ I can’t help but love myself
Admittedly_________________ wouldn’t it be wonderful if I can’t help but love myself.
Here are more phrases to “play” with:
Admittedly I feel powerless and limited, what if, I can’t help but love and forgive myself?
Admittedly I get stressed and flustered and peeved, I can’t help but love myself.
Admittedly I desire wealth and am attached to comfort, yet I can’t help but love and forgive myself.
Admittedly I feel guilty for so much in my life, wouldn’t it be wonderful if I can’t help but love myself.
Admittedly I made a mistake, wouldn’t it be wonderful if I can’t help but love myself.
Admittedly I am attached to my opinions and limitations, what if, I can’t help but love and forgive myself?
Admittedly I am flawed and not the most beautiful being on this planet, what if, I can’t help but love myself?
That is it for now. Thank you for participating.
