Breaking Free of Ideas that Bind

it's your life create it

Often the reason that women stay in abusive relationships is because their mind keeps them there. Freedom is an inner thing, and if we are in an abusive relationship it’s because that relationship is merely a reflection of what is going on inside our own mind.  If you look around you in life, what you see is what you expect to see…. it all starts there.  So the question is, can I break free of this situation and mindset? you ask, and the answer is a very loud Yes!! Of course you can!

The mind takes alot to shift its thinking once you have gotten to a point where you have constant negative mind chatter.  The only way to heal it from that (because once things get to this stage your mind is actually suffering from a sickness), is to use affirmations, gamma meditations and binaural beats to help shift it back to a point where the majority of thoughts you think are positive.  There are many tools available for free on youtube that you can use to help shift your thinking.  There are lots of affirmation videos that can be downloaded as MP3’s that are full of positive suggestions to assist women to believe in themselves once more.  The mind is our biggest stumbling block.  If it isn’t used correctly it can become our enemy rather than our ally.

Silk Isn’t Weakness

Silk Isn’t Weakness

“You’re going to meet many people with domineering personalities:
the loud, the obnoxious, those that noisily stake their claims in your territory and everywhere else they set foot on.
This is the blueprint of a predator. Predators prey on gentleness, peace, calmness, sweetness and any positivity that they sniff out as weakness. Anything that is happy and at peace they mistake for weakness.
It’s not your job to change these people, but it’s your job to show them that your peace and gentleness do not equate to weakness.
I have always appeared to be fragile and delicate but the thing is, I am not fragile and I am not delicate. I am very gentle but I can show you that the gentle also possess a poison. I compare myself to silk.
People mistake silk to be weak but a silk handkerchief can protect the wearer from a gunshot.
There are many people who will want to befriend you if you fit the description of what they think is weak; predators want to have friends that they can dominate over because that makes them feel strong and important.
The truth is that predators have no strength and no courage. It is you who are strong, and it is you who has courage. I have lost many a friend over the fact that when they attempt to rip me, they can’t.
They accuse me of being deceiving; I am not deceiving, I am just made of silk. It is they who are stupid and wrongly take gentleness and fairness for weakness.
There are many more predators in this world, so I want you to be made of silk.
You are silk.”
