Raising My Consciousness One Word at a Time
Power- the ability to do something or act in a particular way, especially as a faculty or quality.
Each of you has the power to affect the world. You may not be conscious of it but it exists. It allows you to overcome the feelings of being powerless. If you listen to the media message that is sent to you every day it is designed to make you feel powerless. Events are reported to make the world seem big and out of your realm. That is a perspective that is advantageous to an industry. If you feel powerless, you look for comfort, buy things you don’t need, do what you’re told to do to protect yourself. In short, it is easy to manipulate a person who feels powerless. Worry comes directly from this belief. But you have power and can affect how you look at and act with life. Read more...

Encouraging Word of the day
Forgive-stop feeling angry or resentful toward (someone) for an offense, flaw, or mistake.
Who hasn’t been wronged, betrayed, let down, hurt or disappointed by the behavior, attitude or actions of another? Each person that you pass on the street or see in your life at some point has felt pain caused by another. Some are big and some are small but that anger about the pain and the fear of it ever happening again, make us plot our revenge. But the true power is to forgive. Forgive them, forgive her, forgive him and forgive yourself. To do anything else is giving away your power. Be conscious of your thoughts and emotions they lead to your words and actions. Forgive.
