Exerting your Will is Powerful

My dear friends...

In our last two entries here we spoke of yearning as an energy in the process of creation. We also said that there were other energies that can be equally powerful in the Force of Creation. And we promised that this week we would explore one of them. So here goes...

This week’s exploration focuses on Willingness as a Force of Creation.

When a Soul is willing for something to occur, that occurrence is much more likely to take place. When the Soul is not willing, it will be very difficult for most human beings to overcome this energy blockage and produce a desired result in physical reality.

But now, let us be clear about this articulation. I am not using the word willing here as an adjective, I am using it as a verb. Willing is not something you are being, it is something you are doing.

Most people do not understand this. They use the statement I am willing to mean “I am okay with this happening.” I do not. I use it to mean “I am exerting my will.”

There is a world of difference.

For years I used a favorite saying whenever I would offer a strong point of view about something. In order not to appear too arrogant, I would follow my argument by saying, “I am willing to be wrong about this.” What I meant was, “I would be okay” if it turned out that I was wrong. But what I was actually doing at one level was asking to be wrong. What I didn’t know is that by saying “I am willing to be wrong,” I was invoking the power of my will.

Granted, a single little statement such as this would probably not have much creative power, so it is not necessary for us to watch every single word that comes out of our mouth. It is the feeling behind the words we speak that carry the creative juice. Still, if I repeat a statement over and over again, I give it more and more power, until “the Word is made flesh and dwells among us.”

Never underestimate the power of your word and the power of your will.

Will-power can produce remarkable results. Willing something to happen is what turns yearning into action.

Hugs and love,
