I watched this today and felt compelled to share this with you. I know sometimes we don't feel we have the time to sit and watch something like this, but I encourage you to find the time. It will be well spent.
Yesterday I was given two gifts from friends. One was called a "prayer box" necklace and another was a framed quote saying "All we need is love". The timing couldn't be more perfect to watch this film. I had my children watch it with me because I feel it is important for them to understand their own power in their lives.
For many of my growing up years of my life I felt unempowered. I felt if only circumstances were different then I could have the life I had dreamed of. Why was it I was given the hard knock life and others seems to be living it up? I would have thoughts like, " Oh, if I was just prettier" or "If I had more money", or "If I lived in a better community then I would have more opportunities in life". I felt like the power to live my dreams and life were beyond me and sent like a wish in a prayer.
Now, many years later I have been fortunate enough (or blessed) to stumble upon information that left me feeling empowered. Some of these resources are:
Power vs Force: The Hidden Determinants of Human Behavior
Being In Balance: 9 Principles for Creating Habits to Match Your Desires
Ask and It Is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires
What the Bleep Do We Know!?
The 8th Habit Personal Workbook: Strategies to Take You from Effectiveness to Greatness
The Science of Getting Rich: The Original Guide to Manifesting Wealth Through the Secret Law of Attraction
The Mastery of Love: A Practical Guide to the Art of Relationship: A Toltec Wisdom Book
I feel like these resources gave me to tools to apply in my life and feel empowered. It has nothing to do with race, gender, age, appearance, money, status, or location. It is all within and that sensation is priceless.
