How to Reclaim Your Own Innate Power

Updated on May 28, 2009

 I have only worked with two long term clients as a coach. By long term I mean one hour everyweek for more than 12 months. The results of those coaching sessions are so remarkable that I will share them with you. In both instances, as a coach, I am not allowed to dictate what the clients have to do.

To dictate is to dis-empower if not to unempower. Always choose to empower another for in so doing, you empower yourself in more ways than the limited mind can create.

In our sessions I only showed them how to change a way of thinking so that eventually they realized that they create everything in their lives.

No outside force. The important thing is to "FEEL" the difference between attributing an outside circumstance as the cause of our predicament and taking responsibility for whatever occurred.

Here is a transcript, abridged, on one of those sessions:

Observe the difference between the following sentences

1. "My wife makes me mad."
2. "I allowed myself to be upset by what my wife said to me."

Now "FEEL" the difference between the two sentences.

1. "My boss fired me."
2. "Subconsciously, I wanted to leave that job. I did not love my job, I was staying there to put food on the table but I realized that that job is not the only thing I can do so having to leave that job was a blessing, although it did not feel like it at that time."

Behind every word is a thought. The word is a vehicle, no more. However since we are so thoroughly indoctrinated in a habitual thought pattern we are not even aware of it, we have to do it the other way around.

Say the words, feel the words and know the new thought pattern it has created.

Here are common exercises. Finish each sentence as you please

I don't want to_____________________________ , I prefer to _____________________________
I would like to _____________________________ ,I choose to ____________________________
I would rather ______________________________ ,I intend to _____________________________
I probably can______________________________,I can and I will _________________________

A few key points. Words are vehicles. They are created from thought. We are accustomed to thinking a certain way so we need to change a pattern of thinking by playing with the words, which creates a new thought pattern and with it a certain feeling. It is by feelings that we communicate to the universe.

You can not request the universe for a home on the beach in La Jolla if in the back of your mind you are thinking "Oh, but how am I going to regenerate the 8 figures required to afford a home there? Answer, if you had it before you can have it again. No doubt." Get the picture?

Wish you everything that will make you happy. Oops..other way around, be happy, then you can have everything.

      Thank you Sam.

      There is a law of cause and effect. It is impersonal.

      God is much too loving to punish his own children so he made laws applicable to everyone.

      As long as we do not take responsibility for our actions then we will always live in fear, the exact opposite of love.

      Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

      When I was first told that I am responsible for my situation in life, I was angry, and fought the concept. But soon, I realized the truth of it. Now, I try to teach my grandchildren that they cannot blame anyone but themselves for their problems, and I try to show them why. Your hub helps with how to do that.

      Thank you, Alex,

      It is deceptively simple, yes.

      Great hub with deceptively simple sounding techniques. I wonder how this relates to NLP and reframing.
