Own Your Power to Create and Destroy in Your Life
You have the power to create and destroy.
Many tend to think of destroy as a negative concept as though destruction can only be harmful. Yet we can’t take our next step in life until we’ve let go of the last one. Anytime we let go or end something, such a relationship, a job, an unhealthy habit, we are dissolving, disintegrating and destroying the energy agreement in order to create a new one.
When we don’t consciously own our power to destroy it can blow up in our face. If we don’t recognize it’s time to leave a job, we may end up having an accident, illness or argument that leads to our termination. If we don’t own that a relationship is over, we may secretly sabotage it in order to move on. If we don’t end an unhealthy pattern, it may destroy us physically, mentally or emotionally.
It’s the classic “you have to let go of the old in order to bring in the new” while recognizing that “as one door closes and another opens”. On an extreme level we see what happens when people in power are unwilling to let go of old paradigms that no longer support the current reality – rebellion, riots, and revolutions occur.
So as we move into higher states of consciousness, which is occurring rapidly these days, it’s important to own our power to create and destroy equally. Otherwise we will experience unnecessary suffering along the way.
Here are three suggestions for owning your power to destroy.
Rise above fear. We’ve been programmed with messages that it’s dangerous to destroy, that we’ll abuse our power, and we’ll unleash dark forces in the world. These are all fear based and only true for unconscious people who are not connected to their higher self or source energy. If you are on a conscious path of spiritual awakening, there’s no way you’ll abuse your power.
Touch into compassion. When we get lost in a lower vibration of sympathy, we tend to pity others, see them as powerless, and give up our own power. Yet when we rise above sympathy into empathy and compassion, we see the bigger picture in life and know that there are times we need to set boundaries, make clear separations, and destroy old dynamics.
Pay attention to the clues. When you notice something is different, sense that something is crumbling, or have lost your passion and purpose for what was, bring your conscious attention to this. Awareness and recognition alone may be all that is needed to support the dissolution. Or you may need to take action to bring closure. When endings, death and destruction are done from a place of love and appreciation, they transform into miraculous new births.
