True power emanates from within. Own your power for yourself and no one else.
Who are you when you are in your power? When your are living from your center, your bigness, your authentic self? What happens when you give your power away to others, circumstances, fear or doubt?
When we step into our true power we shine from the inside out. We feel solid and grounded while light and flexible at the same time. We rise above judgmental thinking; those right and wrong, good and bad dichotomies. We see the bigger picture in life. We stop ‘shoulding’ ourselves and others. We breathe and relax. We stop pushing too hard and beating ourselves up and instead move into the flow of life and allow better possibilities to bubble forth.
Our true power emanates from deep within our core. Unobstructed it lights the way to abundance, affinity and freedom. It’s only when we let our smaller selves rule that we get stuck with invalidation, doubt and fear. When we look to others for approval, direction and attention we get lost. We start to seek love externally instead of loving ourselves. We trust other’s opinions above our own. We believe we are small and powerless.
Why do we give our power away when it brings us nothing but strife and disappointment? Why do some try to gain power over others as a way to feel strong? Somehow, somewhere we forget who we are and how truly powerful we are. We let the muck cover our eyes and we lose sight of our true selves. Thankfully, we always have a choice, and with a little awareness we can choose again in every moment.
