SIMON SAYS! It’s a control game….

simonsaysRemember the game “Simon Says” from when you were a child? Would you like to play? Come on, humor me, it’s just a fun little game.

The rules of the game are simple. You can only do what “Simon” tells you to do.

Simon says raise your left hand. Simon says put your hands on your hips. Simon says touch your toes.

Simon says touch your nose.  Simon says clap your hands. Simon says blink your eyes. Touch your head. Simon says wiggle your toes. Simon says “say HOORAH!”

Wasn’t that fun?! Did you do everything Simon said? Maybe you found it silly or maybe you simply smiled as you reconnected with a bit of your inner child. (If you didn’t play that’s ok, read on anyway.)

Now let me ask you something, did you touch your head? Did Simon say to do it? If you didn’t touch your head you get to stay in the game. If you did touch your head, you’re out. Bye. Don’t feel bad though. You were just humoring me right? It’s just a silly game….or is it?

From the time we are born we are “taught” to follow the rules, do what we’re told, mind our manners, don’t speak until we are spoken to.  We asked permission to do something or we waited for someone to tell us what to do.  Of course, this is good for children but what happens when the control programming carries over into our adult life?

The game “Simon Says” illustrates how easily we can be programmed to follow the rules and allow others to control us. Simon, the control, tells us to do something and we do it. If Simon doesn’t say it…well, we lost. We failed. We’re out of the game and effectively out of the group.

No one WANTS to lose when their FRIENDS are still playing and so, early on, we figure out that the next time we play the game, all we have to do is make sure that we listen intently to “Simon” the control. We don’t do anything unless Simon Says we should.

Do you, or did you, have a “Simon” in your life? Are you waiting for Simon to say you can DO something? Do you find yourself following the leader so you are part of a group?  Do you spend time responding to rules that may not even apply in present time?

Did you, or are you currently, following someone else’s “rules” or, more importantly, are you still following imaginary rules and playing the game therefore allowing yourself to be controlled by them? If you answered “yes” to any of those questions or you recognize there has been a control at work in your life, maybe it’s time to clear the energy.

If you’re not clear on what I’m taking about think back to a time when an authority figure said to you “Stop it! You’re out of control.” (If no one has ever said that to you, or you haven’t felt that way at some point consider yourself lucky.)

Once you remember that moment ask yourself whose control were you out of? (That’s a hint that maybe the person who said you were out of control meant you were out of their control.) When you become aware of and release the control or “Simon says” pictures that are indeed a part of all of us, you begin to heal a part of you that stops you from being who you truly are.

As you release more “Simons” and stop playing the game you find your freedom and become senior in your space. You are present and in charge as the authority and creator. You come alive with possibilities!

We’ve all allowed ourselves to be controlled or programmed at one time or another but when we start living a more awakened life, those controls hinder and instead of help. If you’re having a challenge with this…I’ll help you out. SIMON SAYS find your freedom!~Shine Your Light Debbie

SIMON SAYS! WHO IS ‘SIMON’ ANYWAY?

Remember the game “Simon Says” from when you were a child? Follow these steps just for fun!  Come on it’s just a game:-) Simon says raise your left hand. Simon says put your hands on your hips. Simon says touch your toes. Simon says touch your nose.  Simon says clap your hands. Simon says blink your eyes. Touch your head. Simon says wiggle your toes. Simon says “say HOORAH!” Wasn’t that fun?! 🙂 Did you do everything Simon said? Maybe you found it silly or perhaps it made you smile to think of how it fun it was when you were little!

Now let me ask you something….did you touch your head? Did Simon say to do it? Of course if you didn’t touch your head OK, you know the game! If you did touch your head, well it’s just a game isn’t it? Or is it? 🙂 Practically from the time you are born you are “taught” to follow the rules, do what you’re told, mind your manners, don’t speak until you are spoken to etc.  You have to ask permission to do something or someone has to tell you to do it before you do.  Now of course, this is good for children but what happens when that energy carries over to your adult life?

The game Simon Says is actually a good example of programming and how it can control YOU. Simon, the control, tells you to do something and you do it. If Simon doesn’t say it…well, YOU LOST. You failed! You’re out of the game! No one WANTS to lose and not be a part of the game anymore! After all, your FRIENDS are still playing and YOU lost! 😦 Early on you figure out that the next time you play the game, all you have to do is make sure that you don’t do ANYTHING unless Simon Says you should do it.

Do you or did you have a “Simon” in your life? Are you waiting for Simon to say you can DO something? Or the flip side….are you spending so much time responding to all the rules and responsibility heaped upon you that you forget about creating your dream? Do you have a passion for something but find yourself waiting until….(you fill in the rest there)? Did someone at some point in your life tell you “YOU CAN’T DO THAT”? Are you waiting to be validated for your brilliant idea before you move forward with it? More importantly did you follow someone else’s “rules” about how your life should be up to this point?

Perhaps you answered “yes” to one or more of those questions. Well, I don’t know who Simon is but from a clairvoyant perspective I see controls and programming at work all the time. Many of the people I read are living their lives as “they are supposed to”.  Think about it this way, did anyone ever say to you “you’re out of control!” Now I ask you whose control are you out of? Can you imagine how my parents would have reacted if I responded to the question “what do you want to be when you grow up?” with “I WANT TO BE A CLARIVOYANT HEALER!” Call me kooky but I’m pretty much thinking that might not have gone over too well!

When you become aware of and release the “Simon says” pictures that are indeed a part of all of us, you begin to heal the part of you that stops you from being who you truly are. The more of your own energy you bring in, and the more you focus on your own dreams….the more can create!

A wonderful friend of mine, Hemal Radia, Manifesting &  Law of Attraction,  has written this lovely quote “When we are doing what we are doing for the love of doing it, very present moment oriented, we are creating magic.” There’s a lot of truth in those words. When you become your own “Simon”, you can create your own magic! Follow your dreams & passions and come alive with the possibilities! Do what you love for the love of doing it, not because it’s what you “should” do. There is no time like the present to take a moment, look inside yourself and find your magic! If you’re having a challenge with this…I’ll help you out:-) SIMON SAYS FIND YOUR MAGIC!
