You are more powerful than you think!
The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any. Alice Walker
“Personal power is the ability to take action” Tony Robbins
With all the rage these days on Super Hero’s and their Super Powers, I felt compelled to share what my experience has been around the word “power”. In today’s society, we often misperceive or are misled as to what power actually means. In our culture? Power is often depicted as being something outside of us, a way to manipulate or coerce people into doing what you want them to do. Control. Authority. Influence. I admit, all of these adjectives could be regarded as positive, yet it feels old, crusty and dry. Why not align with something that feels fresh & alive? With a new energy or definition of the word power? What do you feel when you hear the word power? How are you using your power? Or better yet, where are you getting your power? For me? Power comes from inside. Power comes from having a strong connection to that which is greater than me. Some call it your higher sacred self, your Divine, or that word that so many of us are too traumatized to even say, GOD. This is power, which is un-knowable, un-definable, un-seeable, it is a Supreme power, yet felt with such a loving force, we can’t deny it exists. We’ve all experienced it. We’ve all had our moments of feeling that immense power. Maybe it’s when you’ve met another human being (a monk, a priest, a shaman) where just by being in their physical Presence, you felt something quite large, yet unexplainable, but you felt it. This is that INNER power I am talking about. This power that emanates from inside the being and is that which we are attracted too. You’ve got it, I’ve got it, we’ve all got it, but how often do we put it into action? I activate or put into action this inner power every day by staying committed to my practices/sadhana. That is why I meditate, do yoga, chant, dance, hula hoop, all the various things I’ve found that help me to strengthen that bond, that connection, those beautiful gifts that resonate for me that help to ignite that inner power. That’s real power. And when we have that? Our true Super Power manifests. To all you Super Power houses on the planet, let’s do what we can to align our body.mind.spirit.heart so that together, we create a NEW kind of POWER! All love ~ from an inside power Cat
