Empower Yourself!

I have heard these exact words from callers over and over again: “I hate feeling this way!” These words  are generally expressed in response to relationship distress. So then I ask the individual, “Well, describe the feeling.” I will present a personal experience which will demonstrate where this is leading and I believe this topic is critical in the healing process.

Over a decade ago, while I was a volunteer in an organization that promoted personal development, an incident occurred that I can never forget. It changed my life. At that time my position was referred to as a “Room Assistant.” I was basically just there to do the “Grunt” work. There were three of us and we had very specific responsibilities. There was an organizational structure to the room and everybody had a boss. This was a particularly large group, around 75 participants.

One day into the four day seminar, one of the participants chose to leave.  We did not know it at the time, but she was the sister of one of the Room Assistants. So, he also checked out for a full day, attempting to support his sister. This left myself and the other Room Assistants with an extremely heavy work load. Well, one of our responsibilities was during each break, which was only 10 minutes long, to straighten out the room.  This included picking up all their notebooks and arranging them alphabetically, straightening out the chairs and specifically removing any chairs of people that had left the seminar.  We missed that one!

When the group returned from break, my companion and I were literally dripping with sweat. The seminar resumed, and the empty seat stood out like a sore thumb. The speaker called us up front to face all 75 in the room and proceeded to verbally abuse us for not removing that chair. We actually believed we were going to be applauded for our hard work. The entire incident was so unfair that one of the people in the audience actually stood up and defended us. He was silenced.

We sat back down, both of us seriously shaken. We just sat there, lost in our own shame.  We felt abused, not good enough, failures. Then something came over me, and I just wanted to help my companion, and I turned to her and whispered in her ear, “Lupe, you just let him take your power. Do not let anyone ever do that to you again! Ever.” The way we felt then, is the way my callers feel when they say, “I hate feeling like this.” The feeling is being POWERLESS.

The bottom line is that no one takes our power. We give it up. Why? Because most humans have one thing in common and this is a general sense of unworthiness. This LIE, this misconception manifests an array of behaviors and self-defeating attitudes that only confirm our worst fear that we are NOT good enough. This IS shadow work.  Confronting one’s personal shadow rather than running from it is the key.  Then one’s life becomes something much more than living in reaction to our past imprints. Carl Jung once wrote, “We are not what happened to us. We are what we choose to become.”  Once we assume THAT responsibility, true freedom, joy and POWER will be ours.

    Dear Randall & Doreen,
    I’m very excited about your article! I have several decks of Oracle and Angel cards, including the Goddess Guidance deck. I’m looking forward to your weekly posting and accompanying explanation of the cards pulled.
    I find these cards very comforting, and extremely accurate when you’re looking for guidance. Thank you sooooo much for doing this!!!!

(: peace.matt

    Hi Matt,
    I would love to see you, or any MALE psychic out there now reading this write an article and post it in here about women smothering men, chasing men, stalking men , and in general….when a guy says he needs a little space….what happens when his female partner tightens her grip into a chokehold instead.
    About not respecting your partners need for down time….
    The ” Knowing when to back off ” article was written awhile ago, before this blog site existed ……
    …but I would like a MALE psychic,coming from a MAN’S perspective and viewpoint to write an article like this.
    I think this would be VERY helpful to a few of the lady clients out there.

    hey guys!,..Matt here,.(new in town),.and POWER is one of my favorite subjects.I offer my favorite book and author,.Jeffrey Wolf Greene,.and the evolutionary journey of the soul,.as my number one signpost to PLUTO and the essence of POWER.
    All of us here at CP have it and have learned how to use it for good,.Im sure we all have an original story on what we went through to get to the nature of each of our own version of personal power.The power of MANIFESTATION is what Im working on now myself.(:

    What I really like about Jung is his combo of psychic awareness and psychology, yet, he gives much emphasis to the human unconscious. Jung was a big believer in psychic reality. I read that he was a friend of Freud, but was much more open to the spiritual world. I really like how Jung was into the “inner self.” Just wanted to share. Thanks,

    Hi Abigail,
    My baby brother was snooping around my house last Christmas, searching for those luscious chocolates that California Psychics send out to us each year around the holidays…..
    ( those are REALLY good by the way! )
    He ate almost all of them two years ago…..so….this past year…I hid them.
    He came up empty handed…I had them hidden under my bed in my room.
    I left the cheaper choclates out for him…

    Thank you that was so very sweet of you to say. You were brought to her to light her path just not ment to walk it with her. You already knew deep down just needed validation outside of your own emotions. Of course you know you are a healer. Its like a beacon the wounded are attracted to the healing energy. I get it at the grocery store, the gym or anywhere ” you are familiar do I know you” ( old soul) then they tell you their life story. I had a young Native American Medium tell me I had alot of green energy around me you have that too. Sorry I wish I could say it was money but its healing LOL. I guess you could say its spiritual gold so in a sense it is spiritual riches we are blessed with. Have a wonderful weekend!

    Thank you! And Abigail, your reading for me, was on the money. You probably do not remember it but what you told me about the woman in question was accurate. That relationship is no longer. Thanks to your reading and filling in the blanks, I walked in with my eyes open. AHO.

    Hello Phillip-
    Jung is one of my favorites. Very inspirational.
    I am so glad I read this before I started my day.
    So much power in the choices we make.
    I also feel the more we try to help others, the more we help ourselves. I think there are a lot of psychics on this network that found helping other people enriches their own soul.
    Thank you for this philosophical morning, I embraced this! Beautiful post!

    I can tell you having crossed over twice…
    You come in this world alone…and trust me, you’re going out the same way !
    ( even if you are born twins, he he )
    Your life is what you make it…
    ****** You came into this incarnation with EVERYTHING YOU NEED to walk your INDIVIDUAL Karmic path and be happy….*********
    ..all you have to do is BELIEVE it YOURSELF.
    I just LOVED your article Phillip….could you tell ?
    Have a great holiday weekend, everybody..

    Excellent, excellent article…..!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I’ve had to teach alot of clients ( mainly women ) over the years how to ” take back their power “.
    I find myself saying to clients ” don’t give your power away “.
    I’ve worked with alot of Domestic Violence victims on this issue….and it not only applies to physical violence, but victims of mental and emotional violence as well ( which is just as bad ).
    And reading for so many Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Therapists, etc. over the years I’m familiar with Carl Jung. I liked the saying you used , Phillip.
    We create our destiny, moment to moment, by the choices WE make…..
    ..Like I said in another post…fear is a crippler…
    …One of the greatest gifts a psychic can give to any client is helping them overcome their fears…..to help them realize their dreams and goals in life….to help them WALK THEIR KARMIC path, to be the best they can be.
    I’ve actually had Psychiatrists refer their patients to me , when they couldn’t get thru to them in the clinical sense,over the years.
    **** I was able to get thru to their patients in the spiritual sense to help them connect to THEIR GUIDES and higher power.
    Excellent article !!!!
    ***** Phillip, you have very grounded, smooth-flowing energy, CONSISTENT energy….good pitch and tone to your energy…..*******
    I’m due for my annual reading….I get a general reading, once per year…kind of like a tune-up.
    Would you do the honors??? I’ll make an appt with you within the next 30 days .
