Legacy Manipulation…Really

Many of my readers are women, so let’s talk about happiness and manipulation this morning as we walk further into Legacy planning.  Be aware that once “family” begins to see what you are doing, manipulation can also begin.  My simple definition of “manipulation” is skillfully controlling another.  The reason is usually to gain something that needs control to achieve.  Oh yes, in my past life I have referred to it as “chinese water torture”…keep skillfully working a situation until it becomes what the manipulator wants it to be.  It does require a certain breaking of the object the manipulator is attempting to control.  And it is simple, you can’t break a woman that seeks happiness from God.  And happiness is many times what the manipulator promises:  “Do this, and you will be happy!” The basic foundation for a Legacy for me is that Source is called upon to guide the formation of the Legacy; that Source is within me; that Source is part of me.  That makes me happy.  Source is also what operates when the manipulator brings fear to the table to accomplish their goal.  They get up in your face, they unnerve you, and they depend on that inner fear rising up to get you to do what they want you to do.  Surprise, surprise, when Source is at the table with me, the fear melts away.  Fear leaves the table, and life goes on.  Happiness is stronger than fear.  Manipulators should know that before trying to cause harm for their own personal gain. janicelitterst@gmail.com

Miracles Often Fight Intellect…
