As we grow in consciousness, it becomes important for us to take responsibility for the things we create. This is the basis of accountability. We create our reality. This is our birthright. We have always been able to manifest with our thoughts and our words. Now we have reached the place where we are able to do this consciously.

Humans have the unique ability to observe our circumstances from every angle and make decisions or rationalize based on what we see. Unfortunately, we often forget to do this and get so caught up in drama that we become focused on a single facet of life and lose sight of any other possibilities. This shrinks our perspective and turns three dimensional reality into a flat two dimensional picture. Our power to change and create becomes lost in the landscape. As soon as we attempt to define anything, we color it with past history and squeeze it into a smaller box that needs be, rather than allowing our higher self open the door to the field of pure potential.

In order to be good stewards of our birthright, then, it is important to utilize it by taking every opportunity to hone our skills of observation and witnessing. We can do this by releasing judgment—along with all preconceived notions, limiting beliefs ad past history. As we release judgment, it becomes easier to see that everything and everyone just is, and it follows that we can then look at every situation we encounter more objectively, from every angle. In fact, as we move into higher consciousness, it is imperative that we release all judgment. Only then can we begin the process of rectifying the mistakes we have made and correcting the effects they have caused.

Like a photographer, take a step back and allow your viewfinder to include more information. When you do this, a beautiful thing happens—possibilities and potentials begin to appear. Ideas which might never have occurred before light up before your eyes. Pandora’s Box of creativity unlocks and opens for you, and you have choices you can make.

Every facet of life shines light on a choice, an opportunity to exercise your free will. After all, that is why we chose to incarnate on this planet this time—to learn lessons involving free will and love. Don’t waste another minute with would, should and could. The gift of accountability and responsibility is that they call us into action and give energy to our creativity. Practice using these wonderful tools. Use every encounter to look at every possible aspect and every potential choice. Choose wisely. Your destiny depends on you taking responsibility for creating it and making it happen.
