“Only one who devotes himself to a cause with his whole strength and soul can be a true master. For this reason, mastery demands all of a person…” – Albert Einstein
I have had an incredible life as I walked this path here on earth. Throughout my life, there have been many highs and lows, surprises and disappointments. The richness of my experiences was gifted to me by how I chose to handle situations. I know I am a master of my life, filled with love, wisdom, and leadership abilities.
Born to a family of addiction and fear, I survived by my innate ability to go within. Going within was a form of escape into the written word. Books on biographies and historical fiction saved me. Taking a pen to paper personally helped me to release whatever was not mine. It became a form of analyzing life.
Those growing-up years gifted me to comprehend human nature. I learned to appreciate that fear is not necessary to survive. Knowing that fear made people not accountable for their actions fueled me to forgive. I witnessed a parent’s addiction as a form of escape from the realities of life as an adult. Attempted suicide turned into a choice to offer love.
“Find that which creates freedom of thought…” -Linda Amato
The mind is deeply scared in a child at a young age by the first people they learn from daily. Sometimes the reasons stem from not being prepared to be a parent at a young age and discarding a child. The child suffers! The parent moves on! Addiction is attached to both as a form of escape.
The demons of the inner chakras* of each of us are; fear, guilt, shame, lies, betrayal, illusion, and attachment. I was unaware of the workings of my energy field at a young age. I developed a knowing in my fifties. Listening to my innate intuition led me to discover how to be a master in my life.
Learning to trust my inner knowing was gifted by my dad, who, at forty, attempted suicide. His inner voice was one of wisdom which he adhered to and saved my life. A life of abandonment is hard for anyone to process at a young age. Depression can be manic or dangerous to oneself or another. Addiction creates unworthiness and low self-esteem. Wanting a way out of the movie can lead to harming self, even when the inner voice asks one to kill an entire family. He could not see himself hurting me.
Self-discipline begins with the mastery of your thoughts. If you can’t control what you think, you can’t control what you do. Simply, self-discipline enables you to think first and act afterward…” -Napoleon Hill
Unconditional love is not just for parents but can be for children to choose towards them. It would take thirty years of loving and caring for my dad in and out of mental hospitals to learn of the depths of his wisdom—the little boy suffered from the actions of his parents until he was a grown man. His sacrifice in this life was to be for me to master my life.
Change is possible no matter what the situation offers when we view life as having a purpose and passion. Learning about my ability to change my thoughts, I dug into the depths of knowledge for my inner wisdom. Opening to the inner workings of one’s spiritual self enlightens the journey of one’s path to be bright, joyful, and happy.
Of course, change takes commitment and forgiveness of self and others who have trespassed against another. Positive affirmations are the most powerful tool I have maintained in my process since 2003. Going within through meditation has been a benefit beyond what I can explain in my life to date. Obtaining knowledge about the spiritual aspects of my existence through teachers, reading, and workshops paved the path for me to be a master of my life. Today, I feel I am a Spiritual Teacher, sharing through the written and spoken words. As the saying goes – change your thoughts and you will change your life! None of us are capable of changing another. The journey for each of us is to live a life we love through forgiveness, acceptance, and being adaptable. Sharing our stories benefits each of us.
The fear my mom clung to while she lived manifested early dementia for her escape. My parents have transitioned, and I am proud I chose them. The memories are not all horrific, sad, or abusive. I have withdrawn the lessons learned from the bank of life and appreciate who they were so that I could be the woman I am today. I am Grateful!
