[yframe url='http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gS39lJ5IKDA'] The power that I have is the ability to manifest. The nuts-and-bolts of that ability come from some basic principles: Mind, feeling, connection. If I focus and feel something and work with the rungs of reality as they present themselves, then I am manifesting consciously.
If I fear... Then I manifest unconsciously.
The fear of an imagined reality versus the reality of every day is a problem, especially for magickal folks. Believing that we must arm ourselves against a non-existent, imagined future versus displaying sensible control, human dignity, and realism in the present -not to mention harnessing our ability to create magickally- is not only planning for a possibility, but empowering an social-energetic thought form... creating realities we don't want, especially those that want to arm against them.
Prepared is not the same as paranoid.
