Admission of powerlessness

  It's a challenge to get there, but when we do, what a relief. Admitting we are powerless and in need of help is the first step in our 12 steps and the most important in creating a life of freedom, choice and inspired joy. 

  Every week I am privileged to witness individuals who are seeking help, asking for support and reaching out to assistance and in doing so, experiencing clarity, wisdom and connection. Recently, the simply act of making a phone call and leaving a message for a support friend opened up a new perspective of seeing a situation which made a huge difference for me. 

  Letting go of an old belief that says I have to "figure it out myself" or "I'm alone" or even "no one will understand or be able to help me" opens the door for a new way to live. Whatever the flavor of the old belief might be, it is wise to seek a new way of living; one that begins with admitting our need for help. 

  Admitting powerlessness requires humility; knowing we are human, both brilliant and fallible. Reaching out for assistance is both an act of power and humility, an act of strength and vulnerability. In this paradox of our humanness and our divinity, both sides of these seemingly opposite qualities offer us choice, new possibilities and the option of acting in love for ourselves and others. 

Blessings to you on your miraculous journey that begins with admitting powerlessness, asking for help and receiving the spiritual medicine available.
