Summary: As an empath I have access to "stuff" that "normal" humans don't... like where do you feel greed, or what are the component feelings of greed. What happens when you say "I lay in bed" instead of saying "I lie in bed" etc. This article is specifically about greed and its "mind" component, wrong
When I ask anyone if they are interested in being powerful, producing results, etc. I haven't found anyone who could honestly say no.
We want to be effective in life, after all when you are not effective, then you are either a nincompoop or a wretch or both.
At the same time we say that, we are unaware that our favorite way of "empowering" ourselves leads to the exact opposite.
Power or powerful mean: the speed at which you bring your intention to reality. Faster: you are more powerful... got it?
Now, as usual, you are not looking at the starting point, at the assumptions that you never examine, the "axioms" of your life, and you end up way way off the mark.
When you want more, better, or different, which is what you want when you "aspire" to something, in your best moments, what is - in the unsaid - there is that how it is is wrong, bad, should not be.
Try this experiment: look at something and say "this is the wrong thing, this is wrong"
or if that didn't convince you, contemplate getting on the phone with me and hearing me saying to you: you are wrong... that's the wrong answer, or something like that.
Now, observe the pressure in your chest. You can't avoid it, unless you are trying to prove me wrong.
Human beings predictable, machine-like reaction to wrong is a tightening of the chest, a circle the size of your head, just under and touching the Adam's apple. You need an empath to feel it for you: this is your normal state.
Now, let's test this a little further: look at your bank account balance or in your wallet, and say "I don't have enough money, I need to increase my income"
You will feel the tightness in the chest and a grabby feel in your adam's apple. The tightness is the wrong, the adam's apple is your desire to change or improve what's wrong.
These are the basic elements of greed.
You cannot find greed in anyone without the accompanying "wrong."
A desire without the wrong is a feeling that is at a totally different place in your body. I won't tell you, because next thing I know you'll pretend it... that is what you always do, pretend, hoping that it makes a difference. It doesn't. All pretense does is take more of your power away, because you are adding lying to misery...
In the exercise I teach in the Effortless Abundance Meditation is ejecting this "wrong" ball, the size of your head, from your chest. When wrong disappears, you are left with the desire to do something without making wrong what is.
Where this whole practice of "wrong" coming from? I don't know. It is definitely fostered by parents, by school teachers, by bosses... so if you have had any of those, you have it.
In reality nothing is wrong. Everything is what it is, and wrong means: not something else. Of course, everything is not something else... but not wrong.
When you can remove "wrong" from your view of things, everything things aren't, you are left with reality, the beginning of power.
It seems like a small thing on one hand... ok, I'll say things differently, and a big f..ing thing on the other: your mind keeps on screaming to call things wrong... lest you... what? What is the mind screaming? Can you share that with me?
