You Own the Power

You Own the Power: Stories and Exercises to Inspire and Unleash the Force Within

Guide: To quote you, you wrote: "Thoughts are powerful pulses of energy". Would you care to elaborate on this for us.

Rosemary: Absolutely. Every thought is a tiny pulse of energy which when it leaves us it goes out into the universe The universe absorbs this energy and depending on the type of energy it is, depending on whether it is a negative thought or a positive thought, negative or positive energy the universe absorbs that energy. The person you are thinking about or the situation you are thinking about, that pulse of energy goes out and reaches those people, touches those people. It can in fact if it is negative energy can harm that person. Positive energy can help that person. But whatever happens to it, it goes out into the universe, others are touched by it, but it always comes back to you. It is your energy, it belongs to you and always comes back.. What happens is, it is rather like the snowball that gets bigger and bigger the more it rolls down the hill gathering up more and more snow . This tiny pulse of energy as it travels out into the universe it becomes greater as it absorbs other energies along the way and when it comes back to us it comes back bigger, stronger and more powerful than it was when it went out. So if the energy that you are sending out is negative or damaging or harmful, like if you have a bad thought about someone else, whatever it is, it is going to come back to you and harm you ten times more than it would ever harm anyone else. And that's the same with our positive energy when we send out positive, loving thoughts , caring thoughts. They gather energy, its a good thought , its a good and powerful energy, mingles and mixes with energies of its own kind, reaches its goal and comes back to us more powerful and much more strongly.

Guide: I know that our words also have impact, do you feel that our thoughts are equal to spoken words?

Rosemary: No. I think that words are only sounds that we make with the energy that we have. I think the power of our thoughts is way more powerful and way more positive. We have to have a thought before we can form a word.

Guide: I love your "Flower Meditation Exercise" allowing the mind to visually view a flower from bulb to full bloom. You said that the flower chosen is a first indication of what type of soul you are. My favorite flower is the violet and I am also spiritually drawn to the lotus flower. What would you say those specific flowers indicate?

Rosemary: Two beautiful flowers. The violet is the color of healing which tells you that you are healing or drawn toward healing. The Lotus flower is a symbol of great spirituality and the need for spiritual growth within you.

Guide: I know you take great offense at Charlatans who cheat people out of money involving spiritualism work. I agree with you completely, this is shameful behavior.

Rosemary: I actually don't get too upset unless I'm near them when they are spouting their trash then it is hard for me to control myself.

Guide: What are your feelings about the people that I would classify as the "wanna be" types of individuals who want to connect so badly to the spirit world that their imaginations might take over. There are so many uncertainties involving spirit connections, how does a person know they are actually connecting to a God-Source?

Rosemary: I don't get much upset with people that do this, more I get frustrated with them. For the most part people are doing this because they feel it is right and they have no intention of deceiving. The ones that have the intention of deceiving are much more easy to deal with. It is the ones that don't have intentions to deceive but they have a little knowledge. Little knowledge as we all know can be a dangerous thing. We have to learn to listen much more to who we are and what we are. We have to be much more mindful of the responsibility. If anyone of us thinks we have a gift in any way, if we are psychic in any way then we have to be extremely mindful of what we can do and the effect that we have on other people. I know that when I first came to realize that I was what I am I didn't go out there and give to all in sundry. Rather I kept to myself because it made me nervous. The fact that I can say something small and simple thing to a person that can change that person's life is extremely daunting and if even people could bear this in mind that what they say and do will affect another person's life for the good or for the bad and that they have that responsibility and if people were much more mindful of that responsibility we would have less people playing.
