What would it be like to be free from manipulation and control? Really tune into that possibility for a moment. What would change in your life if you knew that you could never be manipulated or controlled by you or anyone else ever again? The only way you can be manipulated and controlled is by being un-aware and un-conscious. The moment you are conscious and aware of manipulation and control it becomes a choice. The choice to be aware and to be conscious gives you more freedom than you've ever had access to. Are you ready and willing to have that much freedom?
One of the ways we can be manipulated and controlled is by aligning and agreeing with other people's beliefs about the unconscious and subconscious mind. Many people are stuck either feeling controlled by the subconscious or unconscious mind or in trying to control it, usually by using positive affirmations, implanting new beliefs or manipulating it into being different through the promise of rewards. How well does this work? If someone came along and started to manipulate and control you into being better, changing, or showing up differently how would you respond? Usually we respond to being manipulated and controlled with resistance or anger. We may rebel against it, or go in the opposite direction, even if the manipulation and control is "positive” or in the direction we truly desire to go.
Breathe in to the possibility of being free from manipulation and control. One of the things you can do is choose to claim your un-conscious mind or subconscious mind as yours. Really acknowledge that this is you. You don't have to manipulate or control you. You don't have to implant beliefs or use coercion or try to sneak in the back door. Choose to honor and acknowledge your un-conscious mind. This isn't the place for your mom to be or your dad to be, or any siblings or childhood friends or teachers, or authority figures. This is your mind to re-claim and choose to become conscious of. Move towards it with love and presence, and release your agreements to be a part of the collective un-conscious mind. Claim your sovereignty to really have your mind as something for you to create with. Include your body and your heart in this too. All of you can be here for you. As you have you, and have re-claimed your body, heart and mind, you can ask the Earth and the Universe to contribute to you and love, honor, bless and support what you're here to be and do. What would it be like to have all of you on board with creation? How much more freedom of Being and choice to fully embody can you claim now? What possibilities can you contribute to actualizing?
Here is a poem I wrote that speaks what is possible as we're free from manipulation and control:
Acknowledging the cosmic heart
Entraining to the magical rhythm
Inviting the light and love of consciousness to circulate
Through every cell of the body
Remembering the gift of Being
Claiming our space to show up
Acknowledging the blessings
Revealing the mystery
Unveiling our greatness
Leading our lives
Bringing great attention to that which returns all to love
Settling, embracing, relaxing
Bowing our heads in reverence
