Lately, every time it seems that we’re finally over some hurtles, more crazy energies appear, knocking us into more crisis and chaos. I’m certainly feeling it, and I know many of you are. So what’s the best way to cope when you feel like you can’t keep up and it’s all so overwhelming? Take your power back.
You’ve heard me say it over and over; I am always reminding you to take your power back from wherever you gave it. So what does that mean? Well, anytime you think something/someone has control over you or your situation, you gave your power to it. You allowed it/them to determine your mood/outcome/thoughts, instead of you creating your reality. It’s an illusion that they have the power and authority over you. The illusion can truly feel real, it can feel like they have the power, but they don’t. You always have a say. You can change your outlook, work through why you created/allowed the situation, forgive everything possible, and take your power back.
One place many people give their power to is the government, especially where taxes are concerned. And because they are the “authority” it seems like you just have to submit. But that’s false.
Over a decade ago I was audited. I made one error and they came after me, guns blazing. But I refused to allow them my power. I took my power back before every meeting and every phone call. I owned the outcome I knew I wanted and met them head on. And I won, because I wouldn’t give in. I owned my power.
There are so many places where we tend to surrender our power: the court system, bosses, your ex, bills, money, illnesses, doctors, family, religious institutions- the list is endless. You can also surrender your power to curses, or to someone you believe wishes you harm- anything you deem more powerful than you. However, they are only as powerful as the power you give them. Without your consent, on whatever level, the energy dies. You are the ultimate authority in your life, remember that.
Your power is precious, don’t surrender it.
So how do you call it back? Quite easily. This is a method my friend Elizabeth Hyer-Rose taught me a very long time ago: picture whomever/whatever in front of you that you feel has power over you. Say, “I take my power back from (fill in the blank), I take my power back!”
Say it with authority, say it with command, and then inhale that power back into you. I always give a literal intake of breath to suck it in and really show my subconscious that I’m serious about pulling it back into me; it’s mine, it has to come back to it’s source. Now you may need to do this multiple times until you start to feel more energized and empowered. Do it as many times as is necessary. You can also picture the person/situation in front of you shrinking and disappearing every time you call your power back. They will eventually, “poof,” disappear once all your power is back to you. Simple, yet profoundly effective.
Worried about money, take your power back from it. Facing an ex in court, take your power back from him/her. Feeling threatened by your boss, take your power back. There is no limit to where you may have surrendered your power so call it back as you need.
Again, nothing has power over you except the power you give it. Let me repeat that, nothing has power over you, except the power you give it!!!
So stop giving it, and claim and create the outcome you desire. You’re not powerless. As long as you can choose and think and imagine, you can change your reality. So start now. It’s time to live an empowered life!
Me, just sharing ways to make you the best you can be!
