Step 14. Accepting that we are co-creators

Dear Reader, it is easy to get caught up in everything that is happening around us –  so much so that it feels as if life is happening to us and we are powerless, being swept along by the current. 

With every experience, interaction and even every moment of our lives, we have the choice of how we interact, react and behave in any given situation.

Change is a constant in all our lives; nothing is static.  But choice is our power; we decide within how we will feel, how we will react, think or act at any given time.  Being powerless in our own lives, drifting along, is only an illusion. 

Though choice may not feel like a power, once you acknowledge and accept that you own your life, and your choice dictates each moment, you will have discovered a limitless power within to take control of your own life and create your future.

In this last step we look at our own inner power.

 

Step 14. Accepting that we are co-creators:

As co-creators we are always creating our reality. Notice how you interact with  power, defeat, joy and sadness. 

We get to decide how we interact with happiness, success, wealth, pity and abundance too.

Understand and acknowledge the charge and benefit of being co-creator, with god-dess, with each other, with our fears, anger, resentment, illness and dis-ease, happiness, joy, success, wealth and abundance. 

Practice awareness.

 

  • What situation in your life do you wish to change right now, and what choice can you make in order to take that first step?
  • How have you felt powerless in your life? By accepting that you are co-creator, how can you take back your power and better your life?

RUNNING THROUGH DARKNESS
MEMOIR OF A SPIRITUAL WARRIOR

BY SANTA MOLINA-MARSHALL ‧ RELEASE DATE: MAY 3, 2022

This debut memoir chronicles a woman’s spiritual exploration and growth as she overcame a disturbing childhood and helped others heal.

Brought to America from the Dominican Republic as a youngster, Molina-Marshall should have led a happy life. Her father was a diligent worker, and his large family wanted for nothing. But the author recounts that her dad had a drinking problem and was a serial philanderer. Molina-Marshall’s long-suffering mother left him for a woman. Then it was all downhill for the bright, 12-year-old girl, who was shuttled between foster care and relatives. According to the author, she was sexually abused by the husband of one of her siblings. This resulted in Molina-Marshall becoming alienated and moody. By 15, she simply tried to survive. In her favor were grit and a restless intelligence. She quit school, rented a room, and found a factory job. Time went by, and for a while she was happily married. Yet when her husband left her, her life truly began. She turned to religion for answers but decided that blaming God for her woes was a cop-out. 

In this absorbing and moving memoir, Molina-Marshall’s vivid storytelling is fearless. She frankly discusses the truths she discovered and the indignities she suffered. These admissions are disclosed with a touch of resignation and plenty of bite. However painful, everything she experienced was a lesson, and she bravely realized that she was part of the problem: “The fear of being hurt, rejected, or abused often led to me feeling lonely and misunderstood. No one knew the agonizing pain I felt being trapped in my thoughts and anger. I was becoming my biggest threat.” 

The author skillfully recounts her intricate spiritual journey. To deal with her psychic wounds, she searched for an inspirational system. Her open-mindedness led her to the interfaith concept—cherry-picking from various religions and spiritual movements, yoga, and Indigenous beliefs as a way of finding peace. Along with her female partner, she built a therapy practice, making use of every spiritual element that aided her and others. The road was bumpy, and she found that women of color in same-sex relationships were not welcomed everywhere. To do good works—and finally live on her own terms—she effectively overcame bigotry.

An engrossing, cathartic account of empathy and success through determination and confidence.
