How to Take Back Your Personal Power

“Shallow men believe in luck or in circumstance. Strong men believe in cause and effect.” 

–Ralph Waldo Emerson



I don’t believe in luck. Instead, when we truly understand Universal Law, there is light shed on any circumstance and we can be set free and find the inner strength to live the lives that we love.

The Universal Law of Cause and Effect states that for every effect there is a first cause and that cause is our thinking.

All things beyond thought is an effect. This includes money, relationships, material possessions, health… EVERYTHING is a result of our thoughts. 

This may be difficult to believe when your experience has been struggle i.e., lack of money, poor health, weak relationships, and other problems that seem insurmountable.

Most of us have been taught that circumstances are happening to us rather than through us. When we believe this, we become victims and give our power over to circumstance. Think about it, if there is luck or random circumstances that “just happen” then we become bounced around upon the great turbulent ocean of life.

Instead… when we choose to believe that our thoughts control our reality, we regain our personal power and then anything becomes possible because we can choose to think anything that we want!!

If this is new to you, simply begin to test this Universal Law. First, try it with small things and then notice how things shift:

  • A simple smile or kind word to your loved ones or colleagues (whether anyone else changes, you will feel better as you are choosing the person you want to be)
  • Acknowledge your body for all it does… breathing, heart beating, and all the many ways your body supports you each day
  • Bless the money that you do have by expressing gratitude for the ability to pay your utilities, car payment, and the food you eat each day


Whether you believe in this law today or not, imagine that your life is a blank canvas. With this Universal Law, you may paint on this canvas a whole new life for yourself. So test it out… the idea that you can create anything you want is provocative and worth the effort!!


Love and Success,
