Own Your Power

Are You Owning Your Power?

One of the common issues I help clients with is owning and using their power and gifts in a way that helps them manifest their most fulfilling life.

When clients have this issue and I look at their energy fields,  I often see a mass of dark blue in their solar plexus area, aka their 3rd chakra. (Dark blue is authority energy and the 3rd chakra is our power center.)

For us to honor and share our gifts we need to be comfortable with owning and having the power that comes with doing that. We need to be open to and comfortable with our own success and achievement on every level. 

Unfortunately, many of us get messages as children that can create inner conflict about owning our true power and gifts. We can get messages that we need to be powerful in a certain way in order to be acceptable to society.

Cultural Messages Can Derail Our Power

A common message many of us get is “I need to use my power not for myself but to support other people in their success, happiness, and well-being.”

Of course, there is nothing wrong with wanting to use our power to help other people. The problem comes when our programming causes us to repress our own gifts, talents, and power in an effort to “help” people the way our programming is telling us we “should.”

We need to be most aware of how we may be diverting and repressing our own power. We can have fear of success/failure and old programming around how we must use our power. Fear of success and fear of failure are two sides of the same coin. Both can block us. 

Signs You May Be Repressing Your Power

Some common signs of repressing our power are procrastination, resistance, and avoidance. We can also engage in unhelpful self-soothing behaviors such as spending too much time on social media or overeating. All in an attempt to comfort the underlying anxieties around our own power.

All these behaviors are simply our subconscious mind’s way of avoiding the triggering effects of facing our deeper underlying fears and programs. 

We need to face our fears to deal with them. But sadly, if they trigger us too much we will go into avoidance and resistance instead. This is where energy work that clears the emotional body and aura can be tremendously helpful. It can support us in owning our power and gifts so we step into our most fulfilling life. 

A Success Story

A good example of this is the success story of a client of mine who is an amazing artist and mother of four. One of her biggest issues was not allowing all her energy to be taken up by her family duties so she could take the time she needed to honor her gifts and do her art. When we looked at her field, one of the colors I saw was this dark blue in her solar plexus.

I told her this could be cultural programming that compelled her to devote all her power to her family. She acknowledged this was true –she needed to allow herself to use her power for her art so she could shine her light and share her gift with the world.  

After a few sessions, we cleared this self-sabotaging programming using energy work. My client allowed herself to put more time into her art. She found herself getting more and more invitations to show her art at galleries. It is exciting to see her transformation and to witness her art career taking off.

Could you have old programming that is blocking you from stepping fully into your power and sharing your gifts with the world?

An Energy Healing Exercise

Here is an energy healing exercise to release fears around success and power so you can more easily share your gifts with the world and create your most fulfilling life.

1. Tune into your body sensations.  Imagine fully honoring your gifts, receiving recognition and success, shining your light, and stepping into your power. Tune into any uncomfortable feelings you may have around this. Feelings are key to helping you identify where your energy is flowing and where it is blocked. What do the feelings feel like as physical sensation? Where are they located in your body? Do they feel like tension, constriction, pressure, heaviness, or something else? Allow the feelings to be there in your body without resisting them or attempting to override them with your mind.

2. Now imagine a window or door opening where the feelings reside. For example, you can imagine a window opening in your chest, or a door opening in the area of your stomach.

3. Ask yourself, “Can I let this go?” Allow the energy to leave your body through the window or door you created. Breathing deeply during this process may help you release the blocked energy. Continue doing this for as long as it you feel the energy release. This can take a bit of practice but you will probably feel a subtle sensation of relief as the energy block leaves your body.

4. Now think again about stepping into your power. How do you feel about it now? Notice what comes into your awareness.

Hope this helps you move into the creative flow that supports you in owning your power and creating your most fulfilling life.
