When we Understand something, we have the chance to control it or at least predict it. We feel safer.
Not knowing how something works or why something happened is confusing, and confusion can be disturbing and disempowering. It makes us feel weaker.
Not knowing why something triggered us or why we responded in the way we did makes us feel out of control, or even a little crazy.
Understanding gives us control and helps us feel safe. Understanding helps us heal.
Understanding helps us take a step towards Universal Power.
Implementation: The next time you are confused, reflect on how much stronger and safer you would feel if you understood what was going on. When you do figure it out, reflect on the Empowerment of Understanding.
