"Traditionally, metaphysics refers to the branch of philosophy that
attempts to understand the fundamental nature of all reality, whether
visible or invisible. It seeks a description so basic, so essentially
simple, so all-inclusive that it applies to everything, whether
divine or human or anything else. It attempts to tell what anything
must be like in order to be at all. The term metaphysics originally
referred to the writings of Aristotle that came after his writings on
physics, in the arrangement made by Andronicus of Rhodes about three
centuries after Aristotle's death".
The Metaphysics of self empowerment offers me the option Will I be
the...The Victim or the Victor?
To awaken and develop our true self we must first reconstruct our
thoughts and feelings. If we choose to focus our attention on the
denial of light we become victims. If we choose to focus our
attention on the acceptance of light we become that light.
The reality you live in is nothing more than where your attention
lies. The purpose of each soul is to dismantle the negative emotional
tendencies acquired through previous acts, words and deeds. To be the
emissary of light that you originally chose to be it is important to
awaken light within your self. One way to do this is to let go of
the "security of your insecurity." This process opens up a world of
possibilities. When you do not perceive yourself as a victim you are
choosing to acknowledge your personal integrity and life begins to
blossom in a balanced way.
Living in a state of balance is a matter of choice. Because our
experiences represent the foundation on which we stand and
consciousness expresses itself through that foundation, it is
important to remember to acknowledge light in every experience you
Acknowledging the light is a simple process. If a situation arises
that you do not like, before you react to it, say this statement out
loud, "I acknowledge the light within this situation." Over time you
will find that this simple act will produce positive changes in your
reaction to the situation.
The time to let go of the victim role is now, not tomorrow. If you
live in tomorrow today, you decrease your energy, your thoughts
become scattered and unhealthy emotions set in. If you live in the
moment however, your attention to that moment manifests a following
Always remember that where your attention lies today determines what
lies ahead of you tomorrow.
Love is the avenue we need to walk to develop spiritual perception.
When you make a conscious choice of loving more make sure your reason
for doing so is not motivated by your personal emotional desires.
Rather do so in order to assist in the activation of the divine flame
of creative intelligence that lives within everyone. When you
perceive the light within another, you are drawing on the strength of
your own inner light to do so. This in turn ignites the creative
flame within you and everyone's life becomes enriched.
Many people today hold attachments to an outcome. They have a plan
with an expectation of what that plan will produce. If the expected
results are not met frustration and disappointment set in. Understand
that attachment to an outcome gives the ego power to control your
life. You are prompted to try again and again to acquire the desired
result. When we let go of our attachments to outcomes we surrender
our ego to spirit and everything works out appropriately
Spiritual perception is known and understood when we do for the joy
of doing. Joy awakens light and light transforms insecurities. This
transformation awakens love the true quality of the soul.

There are three basic levels in the human body. The mental, the
emotional and the physical. Since all three bodies need to be
operating with optimum efficiency for balance to be maintained we
must energize all of these bodies equally. Each of these bodies has a
contact point in which energies of a healing and balancing nature can
pass most directly to each of these three levels.
The mind, in its essential vibration, is closest to the head of the
human body. The eyes and the ears are the entry points for energy
intended to heal or help the mental facet of being. The eyes view
that which they witness and perception is acquired. The ears are the
principal receivers of the spoken word, which stimulates the mental
Loving or unloving emotions are centered in the heart. When a person
has a heart attack the pain often extends along the arms. This
indicates that both on a physical and emotional level the heart, arms
and hands are linked. The contact point for the heart is the palms of
The human being also has a physical body and a physical level of
experience. He/she is in direct contact with the earth itself. The
soles of the feet are the contact points for overall physical well-
being. If you experience difficulties in the mental, emotional or
physical parts of your being, spend a moment energizing the relevant
contact point for that area. Doing this daily can make a difference
in how you feel on all levels.
