received as an e-mail, some time ago, and felt now was the time to share, for whatever reason


Set Yourself Free

by Owen K Waters

Back in the Middle Ages in Europe, the popular path towards

spirituality was to become a monk or a nun. Monasteries and convents

were well funded as their local populations were compelled by law to,

not only attend church on Sundays, but also to donate 10 percent of

their incomes to the church.

Monks and nuns took vows which relieved them of the distractions of

having to make a living. They took vows of poverty, chastity and

obedience. Freed from the distractions of laboring for pay or

supporting a family, they were able to pass many hours per day in

worship and contemplation. The obedience part of the vow was thrown in

for good measure because it suited those in charge.

The problem is that, once a vow is taken, it becomes stored in your

subconscious mind which, unlike your physical brain, lives on after

death and reincarnates with your spirit into each new life.

If you are struggling today with money issues, close relationships, or

you feel a lack of the initiative that could solve your problems, you

probably took a vow of poverty, chastity and obedience in a past life.

Such vows seemed like a good idea at the time but, because

reincarnation was banned from the teachings of the Bible, no one

realized what trouble this would cause in future lives.

Such vows were taken with no expiration date. There was no "until

death do us part" type of clause included, so these individuals'

subconscious minds faithfully recorded the vows as obligations which

would continue until further notice. Today, you might be struggling to

pay bills and wanting to create prosperity in your life to end the

struggle. But if you have a subconscious blockage that says, "Must not

have money" or "Money is bad," then the blockage will prevail and

you'll continue to struggle.

>From a neutral, detached point of view, it is obvious that money,

which is just another form of energy, can't actually be "bad" any more

than electricity is bad. Functionally, money is no more than the

currency of personal energy. It represents the work you've done and

your ability to pay for the work of others to supply your needs. If

you have a mental block about money, then perhaps it's time to stop

suffering and kick out the block!

While the poverty part of the vow will produce financial hardship, the

chastity part will make relationships unfulfilling. The obedience part

leads to a belief that people who have gained positions of authority

know best. This self-denying stance is no longer appropriate in

today's world, as these are the days when the Spiritual Age is

emerging. Today, we live in a self-empowered age which calls for

individual mastery of life, not the blind following of anyone who

claims to know best. They rarely do.

There is one expert in this world who knows what's really best for you

and you see that person every time you look in the mirror! Look into

the reflection of your eyes – the windows of the soul – and ask for

the eternal wisdom that lies within you to come forth. You already

know the answer to every personal challenge. Just give your conscious

mind permission to hear that inner wisdom.

Sooner or later, all obsolete vows need to be released in order to set

yourself free from the invisible chains of self-imposed limitation.

Any vows taken in past lives with no expiration date are typically

inappropriate in the way they affect later lives. The circumstances

that made a past life vow appropriate at the time no longer exist

because every life is a different adventure in a different setting.

In order to develop your own potential, you need to be free of

obsolete, past-life obligations. Only you can develop your potential.

No one else can do it for you. This life is your adventure and it is

your time to either grow to realize your true potential or to be

hobbled continually by blockages that slow everything down.

If you suspect that your subconscious mind may be harboring

inappropriate vows, you can release them quite simply by conscious

effort. Here's how to set yourself free with your own personal

Declaration of Independence:

Enter a quiet state and make this necessary and long-overdue statement:

"I now renounce and release all vows that I have taken which have

outlived their purposes and which now limit my potential for growth. I

reclaim my personal freedom and declare such vows renounced and

released as of now. I replace old vows with the knowing that I am

loved and that I am Love."

For best effect, repeat it two or more times, adding feeling and

meaning each time. Continue to revisit the statement until you feel

truly liberated and able to move forward to grow and naturally prosper

in these, the dawning days of The Spiritual Age.

This material was excerpted from Owen Waters' book, "Love, Light,

Laughter: The New Spirituality," which is available in paperback and

as a downloadable e-book.

Ever since I read this and declared this and other things along the same lines about releasing this agreement, I have come into contact with some powerful information that I am immersing myself in as I retrain my consciousness toward abundance consciousness. Thank you for being the vessel through which Spirit answered my prayer  to help me make this happen.

Namaste Mark,

This was very enlightening.

To acknowledge this is empowering enough and to re-read it over again

because we tend to lose memory of things and for better clarity, I do most agree.

Many blessings

Yes indeed. Thank you so much for sharing this! I am feeling different parts of my body responding after the first time reading this with intention. Thank you so much!

WOW!  Right at the beginning of this I KNEW I had "taken a vow" in some lifetime as the words just hit home.  I do believe I was a small Monk at one time as I saw myself as him, while having some cranial sacral work done some yrs ago.  It all seems to fit. Rather astonishing Mark.  Thank you buddy.
