Recently I helped a client who felt like someone’s puppet, feeling disempowered and overwhelmed. An Akashic Records reading revealed she falsely believed she had to kowtow to the other person’s demands. While the controlling person did try to dictate my client’s behavior, once my client reconnected with her power to choose her own actions, she returned to herself and no longer felt like a puppet.
“Power: The capacity to act on your awareness with loving discernment.” You lose power when you believe you don’t have enough or you don’t remember how to access it. Empowerment begins with the seed of what you believe about yourself and your ability to take a stand. The capacity to act consciously in alignment with your heart, mind, and gut demonstrates personal as well as universal power.
“Utilize your resources to the fullest and create win-win experiences.” Stepping into your power means you have access to all the resources at your disposal. Authentic power benefits both you and all beings, thus triggering positive outcomes requiring less effort. Applied consciously, power spontaneously replenishes itself and energizes those around you as well.
Both saying no and saying yes consciously can empower you in relationships. Openly saying where your willingness lies unlocks additional energy to propel to toward what you want and away from what you don’t want. A preference for harmony over conflict may lead you to go along rather than overtly state what you want. In times of extreme stress you sometimes forget to check in with yourself at all. Returning to conscious choice re-energizes a sense of living on purpose, with purpose.
