Because I Said So
Familiar words for many of us growing up, right?
Whether asking why we couldn’t sleep over at our friend’s house or why we had to take a bath when we didn’t want to, often the reason decreed by mom or dad was: “Because I said so.”
And so it was. The ultimate authority had spoken!
If your family was anything like mine, that was the end of it. There was no cajoling or whining or trying to turn the tide in one’s favor. It was a done deal. Those four words put a stop to all negotiation.
Maybe we even express that power with our own charges today – whether kids, employees or partners.
I said it to Russ just the other night when he asked on behalf of the dogs why they couldn’t go back outside – for the third time that night. Helloooo, because I said so, that’s why! That’s reason enough; I do not need to explain it. It’s my desire. End of story. So shall it be.
I am the authority when it comes to the dogs. And the cats.
And myself, it turns out.
As well as my world.
That’s what conscious creators know about how the world works.
Which is why I’m so fond of using those four words to my own manifesting benefit.
I want the foster kitties to go to amazing homes where they’re loved and adored as treasured members of the family? So shall it be. Because I said so.
I want an easy answer or good news from the tax person or the banker? So shall it be. Because I said so.
When I stop doubting it or fretting about it, and Universe gets my clear instruction that “this is how it is for me,” it responds in kind. Because that’s all it can do – give us back what we’re putting out.
I’m not even a parent and I’m a pro at those four words.
Because I am a conscious creator who knows that as she speaks, so shall it be.
Reminds me of when Will Smith said that although it seems like two plus two equals four, the truth is that “two plus two’s gonna be what I want it to be.”
What I’m suggesting is that those of us who have been trained to believe in the power of the words “Because I said so,” can leverage that power in our manifesting work.
- Fabulous financial abundance? Yep. Because I said so.
- Dream come true cake walk of a job? Uh-huh. Because I said so.
- Smokin’ hot lover, speaking only Italian, in black leather pants, whose greatest wish is to inspire another’s satisfaction? Yep, that too, if I say so!
(Hey, no judging. We get to want whatever we want!)
Can you find that ultimate authority within yourself? Can you connect with that part of you that knows you have final say about everything – that you are the ultimate creator who calls all the shots?
I’m all for going with the flow and letting divine guidance lead the way, on the right occasion. But sometimes declaring how it’s going to be for you is the best way to go.
Speak with conviction when you proclaim what you’re creating. Know you’re the authority of your life and your words are all powerful. Say it like you mean it and like you expect Universe to jump to it.
Just because you said so.
