The End of Victimization

I was listening this morning to a free promo video on Caroline Myss’ “The Mystical Truths Behind Radical Change”.  Pretty sure she has an entire course on the subject (“The Great Transformation”), and I can offer you the Myss promo to view to decide if you might want to learn more:

It seems to be on the power of transformation in our personal and collective lives. And in the promo Caroline states: “Truth is the great change agent in transformation.”

I certainly agree with that. But sometimes getting to or even recognizing TRUTH when you do see or hear it is often hard to do.

So I titled this post with something that she stated in the promo:

“Transformation is consciousness—the power of choice and its consequence….We can no longer see ourselves as victims…we can no longer say we are helpless. We have to recognize the power in every thought and attitude that we have.. …This is the end of victimization.”

As a believer myself in taking responsibility for our personal actions and in taking responsibility for the environment that we create around us (the collective situation) I see tremendous value in freeing ourselves from our sense of victimhood, because I believe that we are only victims when we think of ourselves as powerless and victimized. In truth, we have choices—multitudes of choices that we make throughout every day of our lives. We simply need to realize that for the most part, we are making those choices unconsciously.

Our primary task is to recognize those choices as such before we automatically make them to see if that choice is indeed the best possible choice that we could make at that moment.

Now this takes a lot of self-awareness to instantly recognize when you are being offered “a choice” daily among many alternative options, because getting out of bed in the morning is actually a choice.  Eating or not at any time, is a choice. Leaving the house is a choice, etc., etc. Most of those choices we assume are required for us to do, when in truth, we are intentionally choosing them for a reason perhaps known only to our subconscious mind.

Who we hang with, who we talk to, who we amorously pursue—these are all choices that we make. What we do in life in general, how we view our lives, where we put our thoughts and energies—are ALL choices.

Now you could look back at your childhood and say, “Hey, I didn’t have a lot of choice in anything that happened to me way back then that contributed to who I am today,” because someone else made the majority of those decisions for you—for better or worse. And yes, maybe one’s childhood could have been more nurturing and supportive or less truly horrific, but you can’t change that past now. What you can change is how you choose to view it, how you currently move through it, and how you reset your life to no longer consider yourself as ‘a victim’ of it. Those are choices you CAN make.

It is very easy to fall into victimhood, especially when others support you in that role. So your biggest task is to stop thinking of yourself in that manner, and then look for supporters who also share that NEW view of you being ‘strong and powerful’ and capable of protecting/defending yourself in any situation.  

Get some help from therapists or positive support groups who encourage you to take more control of your life.  Take some classes, change your perspective on life, change who you hang with, try different experiences, get out in nature more, be more independent, break old habits, try a new healthier lifestyle, etc., just DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT than what you normally would do. Change it up—shift your thinking—lighten your energy.

But really be honest with yourself about how you are feeling and what you are thinking. I mean, TRUTH is what you are searching for isn’t it?

Per Caroline Myss:

“Truth is the great change agent in transformation.”

“Transformation is consciousness—the power of choice and its consequence….We can no longer see ourselves as victims…we can no longer say we are helpless. We have to recognize the power in every thought and attitude that we have.. …This is the end of victimization.”

Be you—BE strong—DARE to be powerful!

Because that’s who you truly are.
