One year Support & Encouragement Group – Giving away your power!

Hi everyone, its Shane and Welcome to our Thursday 24th Jan twenty nineteen one-year support & Encouragement Group.  Today we are going to talk about ‘Giving away your power’?

“The beginning of strife is like letting out water, so quit before the quarrel breaks out.’   Proverbs 17:14

If you find your self reacting to others behaviour then perhaps you should read this great book by Mark Mason! The subtle art of not giving a fuck.

When we blame another, we give our power away because we’re placing the responsibility for our feelings on someone else. People in our lives may behave in ways that trigger uncomfortable responses in us.

However, they didn’t get into our minds and create the buttons that have been pushed.

Taking responsibility for our own feelings and reactions is mastering our “ability to respond.” In other words, we learn to consciously choose rather than simply react.

We can’t talk about resentment without also talking about forgiveness.

Forgiving someone doesn’t mean that we condone their behaviour.

The act of forgiveness takes place in our own mind.

It really has nothing to do with the other person. The reality of true forgiveness lies in setting ourselves free from holding on to the pain.

It’s simply an act of releasing ourselves from the negative energy.

Forgiveness doesn’t mean allowing the painful behaviours or actions of another to continue in your life. Sometimes, forgiveness means letting go. You forgive them and release them. Taking a stand and setting healthy boundaries are often the most loving things you can do—not only for yourself, but for the other person as well.

I truly believe that there are no mistakes. When our hearts are closed and we feel resentment and anger and sadness, it’s hard to see anything good.

Yet when our hearts are open, it’s as if so much of that negativity disappears and we’re able to release these old thoughts and reawaken to joy.

heres a great exercise:

See yourself standing in front of a mirror looking into your own eyes and saying, I love and accept you exactly as you are. And breathe. Just let yourself feel what you’re feeling. You don’t have to be perfect. You’re already perfect as you are: You are you. You’re exactly what you’ve chosen to be in this lifetime.

Of all the bodies and all the personalities that were available, you chose to be who you are—to experience this world, this lifetime, through your body, through your personality. So love your choice, for it is part of your spiritual evolution.

Lets pray:

Heavenly father embrace me with your tranquillity and love so that my mind can be at ease. Break every chain of negative thoughts and speak prosperity and positivity into my life, for life and death are in the power of the tongue. Therefore, I declare and decree that every stronghold in my life produced by negative thought patterns are broken in Jesus name amen.
