What are you allowing to master your life?

What Is Mastering Your Life?

We are created in the image and likeness of God.

This is your inherent DNA. It’s mine. There is no getting away from it. There is no getting out of it. There is nothing you can do or not do to change it. Being created in His image means you have been of and from God from the very beginning, and the more you become aware of this truth and the more you become aware of who He is, the more you evolve into His likeness.

The more you know God, the more you know yourself. This is your authentic self. The real you. All that God is, we also are. One of the names of God is Adonai. This comes from the Hebrew word meaning “Lord, master or owner.”

All that He is – His goodness, mercy, light, love, kindness, higher thinking, fearlessness, confidence, peace – should master our lives. As we realize those very attributes of God are within us and are us, we can flow in mastering our own lives with those attributes.

I was sharing this with a friend the other day. We talked about how something is always mastering your life. Always. I shared with her a recent conversation with my husband when we made a commitment to each other to always talk about what we do have and avoid talking about what we don’t have…..especially around our children. By doing this, we would also be intentional about what is mastering us.

She later texted me and said she realized that lack has been the master of her life, and with this realization she said, “I am finally on the road to a breakthrough……I am ready to set myself free and live in a land of abundance.”

You see, when you focus on what you do have, you allow abundance to master you.

When you focus on what you don’t have, lack becomes your master. I don’t think I can ever say this enough: whatever you give energy to is what will grow. That is what will manifest, and ultimately, whatever you give energy to is what will master your life.

If you feed complaining, then unhappiness will be your master.

If you feed insecurity, then fear will be your master.

If you feed comparison, then discontentment will be your master.

But, when you feed higher thinking, when you feed the real you, the higher you, then the Adonai inside you will be your master.

If you feed a right perspective, then happiness will be your master.

If you feed your intuition, then peace will be your master.

Be intentional about what you are feeding and giving energy to. If it’s negative, stop feeding it.

You are ultimately the master of your own life. Not circumstances, not other people. Take control of your thoughts and your words. Master your life with the awareness of who you really are: a divine being filled with His goodness, mercy, light, love, kindness, higher thinking, fearlessness, confidence, peace.

Give energy to that, and I promise you will change your world and master your life well.
