Locus of Responsibility

I invite you to notice the degree to which you are giving away your power by assuming someone else can, will, or must do something before you can feel better. I invite you to bring the locus of responsibility right back into your center where it belongs.

This morning I experienced a palpable shift in my locus of responsibility. I had a sudden insight related to how I've been handling some health issues. I realized that I was gathering helpers and, in effect, giving them the responsibility to diagnose and cure me.

I realized that I was seeing myself at their mercy.

"Well, I hope so-and-so finds me an answer so that I can feel better, otherwise I don't really know what to do."

It felt as if I was floating around hoping some external force would bump me back into alignment.

And when I shifted to seeing myself as the center of the circle, radiating my power and responsibility, I felt filled with hope and possibility.

That doesn't mean I have all the answers, or that I don't need help. It does mean that I am the center through which those things will flow. My power and presence are necessary. I am not merely a wimpy blob hoping someone will swoop in and fix me.

This also does not diminish the work I have been doing all along. This does not mean I haven't been a very pro-active participant in my process. Quite the opposite, in fact.

What it does mean is that I have been brought back to my rightful place in the equation. I am reinstating myself on the Throne of my healing. I am taking back my power and acknowledging the massive influence I wield in the process.

And while this insight was personal and about physical healing, I can see how it speaks also to what is happening in the world and why it is so important for us to keep coming back to our Light and our Power.

Reclaim your locus of responsibility. No one else can make it better for you.
