The 6th insight deals with ‘Control Dramas’, which are ways we have learned to get energy flowing in our direction. They then become programmed into our subconscious as patterns to be repeated over and over again because they work to get control of a situation, dominate it and pull power from others into you.
Childhood traumas block our ability to fully experience the mystical. All humans tend toward one of four “control dramas.” Intimidators, Interrogators, Aloof people and Poor-Me’s.
We all fit into one category or another. One control drama is dominant but you will use whichever you need at the moment to feel more secure, tending to repeat the category which works best for you.
Once you learn to recognize the control drama currently in place, you can sidestep it to avoid conflict and the associated draining of energy from your participation.
Energy is stolen from you when you engage in another person’s control drama. We all do it subconsciously when we feel the need. Covert manipulations for energy cannot exist if you bring them to consciousness by pointing them out. Such a revealing causes both people to become more real and honest.
Since control dramas are instilled in us in reaction to the control dramas instilled in our parents by their parents, we must seek out why we act as we do, reintepret the experience from a more evolved and spiritual point of view and discover who we really are. Once we accomplish this, the control drama dissolves away and our real lives take off.
It should be pointed out that control dramas can also be created as a defense mechanism for any situation which removes energy from the child. Thus, the parents are not always the source of the control drama.
