Are You Owning Your Power?
One of the common issues I help clients with is owning and using their power, gifts, and talents in optimal ways so they can create their most fulfilling and purpose-driven life.
When clients have this issue and I look at their energy fields, I often see a mass of black in their solar plexus area aka their 3rd chakra. (Black is positive transition and the 3rd chakra is our power center.)
For us to manifest the life that truly fulfills us, we need to own and use our power and gifts. We all have gifts and talents that are here to support us on our path and to share with the world. They are a source of our personal power. They are tools that give us the ability to create a fulfilling meaningful life.
Fully owning our power does not always come easy. In fact, for some of us, it can be one of life’s primary struggles.
As children, we are fairly powerless. We need to listen to our adult caregivers and follow their directions. We have little power of our own.
As we develop, for us to be fully functioning successful empowered adults, we need to own more and more of our own power. We need to step into the confidence that our gifts and talents bring us so we can share them and live our most fulfilling life.
However, a lot of us get conflicting messages about fully owning our power. We can get cultural programming that makes us wonder, “Who am I to be a leader?” “Will people still like me if I am powerful?” “Do my gifts really have value to others or am I kidding myself?”
These subconscious messages can create inner conflict that gets us in our own way. If we had particularly domineering parents, we can actually be more comfortable allowing others to have power over us than for us to stand in our own power.
The key is to recognize when we are not allowing ourselves to embrace our own power and gifts so we can change our behavior and break through to our next level of empowerment.
Here are some questions to help you own more of your power so you can use it to create your most fulfilling life. Ask yourself:
1) Do I stop myself from taking on bigger and better challenges that help me master myself and share my gifts with the world? What are those behaviors and habits that are getting me in my own way?
Think of a habit you have that is getting you in your own way. It can be anything that takes you out of fulfilling creative flow or anything that stops you from honoring who you are and what you want and deserve. A few examples: procrastinating, being overly agreeable or overly modest, not speaking up, not believing in yourself and your gifts, not wanting to put yourself out there even though you know you need to, avoiding taking that next step, etc.
2) What am I getting out of this habit? Is it self-soothing in some dysfunctional way? How?
Stepping into a new level of power requires change. For many of us, change is emotionally uncomfortable. Because of this, we can adopt behaviors that feel soothing emotionally but actually, disempower us. It’s key to recognize how we are disowning our power through these behaviors. Just seeing this behavior in this new light can make a big difference in how we direct our creative energy.
3) How can I create a new habit that will better support me in my life and in the manifestation of my goals?
Think of your current habit that is blocking you. Imagine how much more empowered you will become in your life by changing that one habit. What new habit can you install that will empower you? For example, if you tend to procrastinate think of ways you can start to be more proactive. Or if you tend to give your power away by being more agreeable, think of how you can start standing up more for yourself.
When we master ourselves and how we use our own creative energy, we drop into the flow that helps us easily achieve all of our heart’s desires.
