“What is the definition of true power? Power comes from spirit and your essence and is fed and supported by the elements and energies more powerful than you such as the sun, the earth, nature, the stars, your imagination… You can be empowered or allow yourself to be disempowered through a trauma, karma or lessons, but another person cannot truly give or take away your power as they cannot ever truly give you any. True power is something no one can take from you and is not connected to anything you can lose. You can lose your money, things, homes, reputation, relationships, physical body parts, even your health. But you can never take away your spirit, experiences, wisdom, medicine, talents, dreams and intentions. They are yours and yours only and are part of your power base. Requiring acceptance or attention from others does not build power. With that said, however, true community and unconditional connection is a wonderful way to feel your own power in giving and receiving.
Where in your life have you felt disempowered? How can you take responsibility for that? Where have you given your power away? What experiences have empowered you? And where have you expected to gain power that was not authentic?
We have all been imprinted with an idea and belief of power as being related to accomplishments that can be measured. Influence, money, degrees, notoriety, fame, attention, accumulation of wealth etc., have long been a part of the measuring stick that may have influenced our dreams and intentions and had us looking in the wrong direction to gain power. Success can mean a lot of things…
The key is to access the power within you and not to look for it on the outside. You will only be disappointed with the illusion in the end. If you don’t do the work now, it will be that much harder later when the energy is less supportive of it. We have a tremendous opportunity to move through this and access the amazing landscape of love, beauty and manifestation on the other side.”
