When you are unaware about your conscious creations, you are benighted. You can and do cause harm to yourself and others.
This is what we know as ignorance. Not ignorant for the sake of being simply stupid. Rather, ignorant in the sense that you live and operate from the space of being unaware of your own co-creative power to produce outcomes that do not serve your highest and greatest potential. Simply put you are benighted to the fact that you are cause in everything that is happening in your life. You play a vital role in your life experiences. You create them and you experience them too. This is called the dichotomy of life.
For example, when you become angered, become fearful, or experience emotions based on your thoughts and beliefs you cause the flow of energy to be shut off, reduced, or shifted. This causes a misalignment in your chakras due to a conscious shift in energy from present feelings you feel from your thoughts and beliefs about the present situation or experience.
The flow of energy in these moments reduces or gets distorted through your emotions, which is immediately caused by your filtration and misinterpretation of information from thoughts you have, and your beliefs about those thoughts. This can and often do lead to some immediate action or reaction. You literally cause an imbalance in your consciousness, which has an immediate and direct impact in the life experiences you co-create.
The challenge is to learn how to be in every situation and experience and live as an exemplary leader. Be a champion for your own super conscious awakening. How you choose to be, what you choose to do, and how you choose to act has a direct impact on you and everyone around you. Additionally, how you interact in the world determines the quality of the life experiences you co-create. Learning how to pay attention to where you are in consciousness is an essential personal leadership skill to develop and master.
When you can pinpoint where you are in consciousness in any given moment — in every situation, you are able to transform difficult situations into pleasant and happy ones. Remember that you are the author, creator, and producer of your life.
You are the captain of your ship. You are also co-creating every life experience you have either alone or with others. There will always be challenges in life, but how you choose to show up in each new situation will determine how others experience you and how well you are able to cultivate lifelong relationships that are respectful and kind.
