HOLY BIBLE…THE MODERN-DAY TESTAMENT: PART 1… One of the most important choices we can make is to be our authentic selves
Deborah M. Cofer aka Mama C
. 1. God created me and gave me empathic powers. 2. A reality that is sometimes difficult to accept, but in the acceptance, I am comforted by the reality that being an Empath is a gift… one that I had to understand, protect and use wisely. 3. With this greater awareness of myself also comes an even greater responsibility. 4. But knowing that God is with me and always guiding me, despite my human flaws, I am empowered with the ability to “keep on keeping on” as I continue my journey as an Empath, woman, and member of the human family regardless of the challenge I encounter.
5. The human journey comes with flaws we each must be willing to humbly acknowledge and remain aware of. 6. Without awareness and compassion for ourselves, it is difficult and sometimes impossible to have it for others. 7. In the words of Greek philosopher, Aristotle… “Knowing thy self is the beginning of all wisdom.” 8. It is through and with this level of conscious awareness that our purpose is revealed and the journey toward the fulfillment of our destinies begins to take flight.
9. My childhood was filled with trauma, fear, uncertainty, and lack of healthy parental guidance, protection, support and love. 10. These were all difficult challenges I had to find my way out of without falling prey to. 11. Of course, I eXperienced moments of happiness; but they were few and far between. 12. But through it all, it was and continues to be my connection to God that gave me the strength, courage and power to keep going and believing that there was something better for me. 13. I am eXtremely thankful that I never lost myself in the perceptions, dictates and illusionary images of the outer world; maybe because day-to-day survival took precedence over everything.
