Hi everyone, welcome back. I am Roslyn Saunders, Co-dependency and Addiction Coach Specialist.

I wanted to share a little story. About 25 or 30 years ago, I bought a book. It was blue and grey, I remember it, though I haven’t got it now unfortunately. The book was called “The Three Most Powerful Words”.

The three most powerful words we can say are “I do not know.” Now, when we get stretched to the limit with a decision and we’re trying to rack our brain, thinking “What will I do? If I do this, or if I do that,” to be able to surrender and just say, “I do not know,” opens us up to Universal intelligence, the quantum field, the four or five-dimensional fields for things to come in.

When we say we know, or “I think it should be this and that” (which sometimes is okay and appropriate to do), but if we just get to the end and if we’re comfortable (I find this works so well for me), if we’re comfortable to say, “I do not know,” and you might even add at that time, “at the moment,” but what that’s doing is opening us up for Universal intelligence, for ideas to come in. In a way, you’re surrendering it.

So I just wanted to let you know how powerful that strategy is and how it can give us relief. We can let go and then ideas can come. So I think that’s a very, very good strategy to use if we can.

I wanted to add also the importance of having someone to hold you in the space where you do not know. I can’t tell you, and I think I’m quite good at that, holding people in the space of just “I do not know” and surrendering it.

So the three most powerful words we can say are “I do not know,” because then we’re giving up control. When we do know, “I think it should be this, this, this,” we’re still controlling it. So I’d like you to give that some thought.

When you feel anxious, when you feel nervous, when you feel like, “I can’t do this anymore,” then you just say “I do not know.” You will find (well, I would say I find) a little wave of relief comes over me and it starts to untangle the control that we’re trying to hold onto.

So just to recap, the three most powerful words we can say are “I do not know”. We’re giving over control and we’re opening up for Universal intelligence, Christ Consciousness, whatever you want to call it. You’re saying, “I’m out of all ideas and so please help me.” So I hope that helps today. It helps me so much just doing that.
