Take Back Your Power
I watched a film online this week that really sparked some big questions in me.  They are questions I have asked myself before but this film took them to a different level.  I would never call myself a conspiracy theorist but I certainly believe that things are not always what they seem and there are people in this world who are more interested in money and power than they are people’s welfare.  So today’s inspiration is about taking back your power.
In a lecture I heard earlier this year Dr. Wayne Dyer suggested that the people of America were being ‘dumbed’ down.  He was talking about all the drugs available in the USA and how they have now created a drug to cure shyness.  Are you kidding me a drug to help cure children of normal childhood shyness!  The drug companies are excellent at convincing people that they have a ‘dis-ease’ and that they have just the thing to fix it.   Now, do not get me wrong drug companies also come up with some life saving medicine too but, I often feel they are in it to make money and they do not make money on our being healthy!  If you are given drugs to take then find out what they do and where they come from. 
We are not only being ‘dumbed’ down by drug companies but also by the food market which sells us low nutrient, high sugar/fat/salt and highly preserved foods.  The meat board will tell you that you need lots of meat to give you your iron needs and the dairy board that you need milk for calcium.  It is correct that these foods assist with these nutrients but they are not the only option or necessarily the best option.  But do we do our own research or do we just buy what we are advised to buy? 
Take your power back by getting to know your body, do research and make informed choices on treatment options and nutrition.  I love knowing that when I go to the doctor (which is rare) that I know what he is talking about and can make an informed choice about healing my body.   And while we are on this subject take back your power from the alcohol and cigarette companies too!
Then there are the media.  I believe that a huge amount of the media which includes Television, radio, newspapers and magazines is owned by a select few people and they are controlled by what the powers that be want you to know or not know.  This is not to say that all media is like this, media can be great and certainly there is more truth coming out now than ever before but we need to take it all with a grain of salt and again do our own research!  Are we getting all the information?  
We are also giving our power away to things and entertainment.  Television programs (addictive viewing like mind numbing reality TV), video games, movies, internet sites like face book, fashion, gadgets, cars, fancy toys and the list could go on.  We are constantly surrounded in noise and distraction which keeps us from connecting to our higher mind and better judgment.  Are we addicted to getting the ‘right’ things, watching the ‘right’ programs, having the ‘right’ image?  Looking at the world I would have to say yes, my-self included but I really feel like it is time we need to wake up from this mind numbing slumber and start to use our brains again.
I have saved the biggies for last.  Are you giving your power away to government?  Government is a trickier one but I think the more people that demand the truth and choose wisely with their votes the better we will be, I really believe there will be a big movement in the future towards forcing governments to tell the truth and spend our tax money wisely.  I do not believe our government to be anywhere near as corrupt as many other countries but I also do not think all is what it seems to be!  Get informed, dig a little and know where your vote is going.
And finally Religion…possibly the most corrupt.  I believe in God but I do not believe in Religious dogma.  The Catholic church especially is a billion dollar industry, they do not pay tax and I know they helped the Nazi’s during World War 2 which is enough for me to want to avoid them.  The stories of Hell and the Devil were crafted to keep illiterate people in line and pouring their money into the church, it is so sad because the message of God and all the beautiful things associated with it get lost in this mess of corruption and greed.  There are plenty of religious groups around who are not corrupt and have the best of intentions and I think that is great, but in taking your power back you must do your homework, do not believe everything you are told or read and for goodness sake “Use your brain!”  If anyone tells you how to live, how to dress, what to eat, what to say and that you are going to be punished by a God, then walk away! 
I am not writing this to up stir trouble instead I am just suggesting we can start to question things that perhaps those before us took on in blind faith.  Fear has been used by those in power positions for years to manipulate and it is time it stopped.  Do not just take my word for it, find out for yourself. 
We are powerful beings. You are powerful.  We are not separate as many would have you believe. So do your research, listen to your intuition and find your truth because the truth will set you free.
To finish I have included a speech by John F. Kennedy which was said shortly before he was killed, it is very powerful:
The very word secrecy is repugnant in a free an open society and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. 
For we are opposed around the world to a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its fear of influence.  On infiltration instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice.  It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military diplomatic intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.
Its preparations are concealed not published and its mistakes are buried not headlined, its dissenters are silenced not praised.
No expenditure is questioned, no secret is revealed.  That is why the Athenian law maker Solon decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy.
I am asking your help.  In the tremendous task of informing and alerting the American people, confident that with your help man will be what he was born to be, free and independent.
I am at the Healthy Body & Soul Expo this weekend which is at the West Wave Aquatic and Recreation Centre - 20 Alderman Drive, Henderson.  The expo will feature a variety of exhibitors including health specialists, healers and clairvoyants.   The Expo is open from 10am – 5pm both days.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone.   May you always be surrounded by love and light.
