The more I move towards living a self actualized life, the more I realize that everything is ultimately my responsibility.
As I continue to evolve into the reason for my existence I realize how much I used to I sabotage my own life at every corner and just how self destructive that was.
The saboteur is the Colonel of the “Negative Thinking” army.
The voice of our saboteur tells us we can’t and gives us a plethora of reasons why not.
Most of us mortals tend to get in our own way at times. Some people make it a national pastime.
Self sabotage is when we turn our own guns on ourselves. It’s a kind of friendly fire but on “purpose.” It’s intentionally shooting our own troops while they are fighting the battle for our own liberation. And the artillery shells are normally aimed at our goals, our dreams and our hopes. And with a sustained barrage of mortars, they can shatter our chances of winning the revolution for our independence our freedom and our bliss.
The losing army is forced to wave the white flags of surrender and become captives at the mercy of their new masters.
Most of the time this destructive warfare happens unconsciously. We may not even be aware that it’s going on.
The saboteur’s job is to convince you to stick with what’s familiar so you don’t have to risk your “comfort and security.” The saboteur’s marketing strategy is to sell you on sticking with the “easier path.”
But in the end, it’s the “easier path” that becomes the more treacherous, painful and unsustainable.
Self sabotage may have deep seated routes in the messages we were given as children growing up. Or they may be the result of feeling we are different or that we didn’t fit in or belong. They may also be the reactions to emotions we are trying to hide and deny by using addiction or procrastination.
When we are throwing up roadblocks to our lives and self sabotaging we’re really just a denying our own innate goodness and not acting the part of our own Inner Divinity.
We need to live consciously and become aware of when our saboteur is running the show. What we resist persists. So with awareness we can then make a conscious decision to “turn the other cheek.” Our job is to become conscious of when the saboteur is engaging, and then with non resistance, disengage by substituting an empowered thought that resonates deeply with joy or bliss, or a thought that connects deeply to our Definite Major Purpose.
Here’s the kicker, it takes EXACTLY the same amount of time and energy to send a negative, saboteur evoked thought to your subconscious mind as it does to send an empowered, blissful and positive thought.
It’s Universal law that the subconscious mind MUST and WILL give you more of what you are thinking.
The thoughts and thinking you subject to your subconscious mind is ultimately your responsibility.
Much love & Welcome Home,
