I'm not at liberty to share most of what's been shared with me, as I cannot yet claim to understand a good chunk of that data. However, what did come out as a useful talking point in all of this is confronting an idea of some pertinence where seeking after power and monetary benefit are concerned.
We each have baggage to deal with on account of being human beings. We've all encountered some kind of adversity in our lives, and while the severity of those difficulties changes according to each of our personalities, the perceived impact of these trials and tribulations is more or less equal. We're going to struggle with one thing or another over the course of our lives, and according to Raziel, the events that stick with us have a tendency to become lead weights about our ankles.
If you find yourself in a situation where you're making no progress or the way is more difficult than you would have expected, consider what is holding you back. Sometimes it'll be other people, adverse circumstances, or a hex...when its not, however, the damage is more likely than not internal.....I would advise you to contemplate what fills your head and heart with sorrow so that you can then take steps against it. This isn't an easy road, by any means, and you are more than likely not fully at fault for whatever's occurred, but its your responsibility to handle these issues and get back on the road to success.
So by all means, find those chains and cast them off. You'll find that they've done far more to hold you back than you might initially expect.
