Dear Friends and Readers,
The following post is one that is part of my Weekly Message Series on Victim Consciousness that people have been signing up for and receiving for the last 10 years. It is rare that I share any of these messages outside of the Weekly Series, but this one seemed so relevant and important to our times, that I decided to make an exception and share it with you here. May it be helpful for you in finding peace amidst the turbulent times. Blessings,
I hope you are getting better and better at holding your emotional
vibration in a steady state of peace and acceptance using the tools
you are learning. Maintaining Observer Consciousness does take a
strong desire for harmony along with a commitment to practice it.
As I've written many times before, Observer Consciousness is the
antidote for Victim Consciousness. It is a state of consciousness
that assumes one hundred percent self-responsibility for the
condition of our mental/emotional state. Observer consciousness is
a state of being that refuses to give anyone, and certainly not
those who have acted abusively toward us, the power to determine
our emotional well-being or to decide the quality of our life.
Observer consciousness is activated and strengthened in various
ways. I've mentioned many of these ways in times past – but for
clarity sake, let's go through a list of the various ways to access
Observer Consciousness here now.
We activate Observer Consciousness in the following ways:
By listening carefully to our language when we speak about others,
or interact with them, and noticing when we use victim vocabulary.
By noticing when we act defensively or react negatively.
By applying universal guiding principles
to any and all situations.
By asking ourselves direct questions about what we think,
especially when our thoughts create negative feelings. Click on the
link for an example of questioning a negative thought using Byron
Katie's “Four Questions and Turn Arounds”
By asking such questions as:
Who am I giving responsibility for my state of well-being in this
Who am I blaming?
When I believe these negative thoughts, how do I act?
Toward myself? Toward others?
What other ways of seeing this situation are possible?
When I insist on seeing it in a way that creates unhappiness, who
am I hurting?
What way of seeing provides me the highest frequency viewpoint of
myself and the other?
What examples do I have that verify it as true?
By identifying where we are on the victim triangle
when we are unhappy with someone. Remember, all dysfunctional
interaction takes place on the victim triangle and taking
responsibility for that part.
By taking time daily to ground and align with Source so to set our
day for the best possible results.
By refusing to settle for a perception that blames something
for our unhappiness, insisting instead on seeking until we find the
gift being offered us and seeing every situation as simply another
opportunity to expand our consciousness.
Next week, I will begin to give examples of some of these and share
the gifts that come from their practice.
