What does spiritual self-authority mean? Self-authority is one of the jewels in the crown of YOU. Because self-authority is how you know what matters to you, what is true for you.
Self-authority means your own heart and mind, your gut feelings and the rest of your emotional reactions as well.
Also included in self-authority are what physical sensations int the body tell you, plus common sense and worldly wisdom.
Many a new client has come to me with the popular New Age idea or religious ideal that, supposedly, there is an authentic self, a true self, a more Christ-like version of self, etc. And, supposedly, this must be consulted at all times.
What is your human self, garbage? Please, be a smart New Age consumer.
Intuitive insights and answers to prayers still count. You can include them in self-authority, as part of a balanced life. Just not all day long, or to the exclusion of the rest of your street smarts.
Self-authority lights your path to Enlightenment. If it isn’t strong yet, start paying attention. Occasionally. Just by trusting yourself.
Each of us can discover depths and shallows to self-authority. Offhand, I can’t think of a more important aspect of self-knowledge. So I was delighted to receive this impressive guest post from SANDY, her first. Meet her here, Blog-Buddies, and congratulations!
First step: understanding self-authority
Bear with me readers. I have been on a long disappointing journey that ended when I took Roses Empath Empowerment Level 1 Workshop. Thats when I first heard the term self-authority but the meaning of the term eluded me.
Rose spoke of self-authority in a session of aura healing that I had with her shortly after the workshop.
I heard it again in the second and third workshop I attended with Rose.
In her recent workshop on Spiritual Cleansing and Protection, she gave us a homework assignment for Re-installing self-authority.
It was a three-week assignment.
Now, in week three, I have begun to understand the importance of owning self authority.
My personal process, waking up spiritual self-authority
The homework made me uncomfortable, but for some reason I knew it would be good for me.
I followed the instructions and began reading Rose’s book Use Your Power of Command for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection.
Suddenly, it all came together.
My sense of a need to accept self-authority (however uncomfortable) and conscious understanding of self-authority came together.
Self-authority is whatever power you possess, as is.
However, recognizing this requires some self awareness.
Rose happens to be that person to teach me such self-awareness, self-authority.
The naturalness and ease of self-authority, once awakened
It was difficult for me to believe that the concepts Rose taught could be so powerful AND so easy.
I still resist believing, not wanting to be vulnerable to yet another disappointment.
However, the last workshop I attended just happened to answer questions Ive been quietly asking for the past 20 years!
“Use Your Power of Command for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection” provided further explanations.
Although previously I had no awareness of, and therefore no questions regarding, self-authority, what has changed?
Self-authority has now become my foundation for further development.
I consider myself to be a very responsible person, sometimes feeling overly responsible (as if I were responsible for the actions/feelings/states of others).
Having a healthy sense of self-authority allows me to see and be responsible for myself only.
This sense of self authority allows me to realize boundaries beyond the human influence(s).
I no longer feel completely vulnerable to other realms.
Next Step: Disciplined practice and understanding of the techniques that Rose taught me in her workshops .
