I’ve thought more about my recent post – The Rules (Oct 28) – and the relationship of rules to responsibility. While the two concepts can be viewed as intimately connected, doesn’t it seem that the more responsibility there is in us, the less need there is for rules?
What’s this got to do with alchemy?
Whether or not you see being responsible as related to following rules, responsibility is related to two very powerful feelings that we, and particularly alchemists, must come to terms with on a conscious level when inviting transformation into our lives. They are a sense of self worth and the ability to experience and cope with our fears.
I’ve created an alchemical decree that helps me keep these feelings alive and present in my life and I want to share it with you:
I understand the fears I experience
Are created by me,
And now I see them
And opportunities for learning.
I am a worthy person
And deserve all the
Support, love and abundance
The Universe gives me every day.
I am capable of fulfilling
The responsibility that comes
With accepting my worthiness
And living beyond my fears.
