If you watch closely enough, you will see the entire society is programmed to be afraid of everyone and everything. You see it in mass media every single day and you hear it at the dinner table. Fear is in advertising and behind decisions people make about you. When occupied with your fears, regardless of how they play out, you are letting someone or something control and manipulate you. Taking back your power is an inside job. You might protest, or make a good argument. Some might be convinced, but this won’t really satisfy you. You have to make the change yourself. But only from the inside. The inside is your inner world of thoughts and beliefs, feelings and images. This is your invisible, subjective reality. Okay, don’t take my word for it. Test out everything I am saying for yourself as a scientific project. I’m telling you my findings after my own experiments with thought.
To understand how empowerment is an inside job, start by giving attention to the thoughts you think. You generate feelings with each thought. For instance, when you find out someone you met with recently has a contagious disease, you might wonder or worry if you are going to catch it. With this thought, you generate the emotion of fear. You see images in the mind’s eye of at least being inconvenienced. At worst, it is the fear of dying, like with covid-19. You do not have to accept this as something that will happen to you. It is merely a theory. What can you do?
If you feel the fear, pause and look at that emotion objectively. Remind yourself, saying, “I’m changing my mind.” What thought will you use? Scientific studies beginning in year 2000 tell us the human body comes equipped with everything it needs for healing itself. The suggestion is that you have a wonderfully magnificent self-healing body. Toy with this thought and notice the feelings you are generating. How does this thought feel? Does this thought feel different when you compare it with the thought of catching something? Are you feeling the difference?
If you feel the difference in the feelings you feel when changing from one thought to the next, you are taking back your power. It is your empowerment forming from the inside, and you can empower yourself in any topic. You have but to be consistent in changing to thinking good feeling thoughts. Making this your habit results in automatically seeing and feeling changes in your body. Notice the good feeling energy you feel in the body when you are thinking thoughts that feel good for the pleasure and fun of thinking and feeling. This is evidence of your empowerment.
