One of the things I am most passionate about is helping people with Personal Empowerment. When you are Standing In Your Power, you connect to life with a sense of purpose. From there, you can craft your life to be a reflection of what you truly care about.
When you are in your Authentic Power here’s what you may notice:
- You no longer feel powerless and small
- You stop sabotaging your own results
- You decide that YES, you are worthy of success
- You put an end to struggle and move forward with ease and grace
- You finally put old family patterns behind you
Through many spiritual paths I have been hearing the same message over and over: It’s that we have both a True Self and a False Self. You can call your False Self your EGO, your Personality, or your Shadow. Your True Self is 100% based in the energy of LOVE, and your False Self is 100% based in the energy of FEAR.
Along with this understanding of your 2 selves comes the idea that you are a Spiritual Being just happening to be here having a Human Experience. So when you are in your False Self, you are in the physical dimension of you, your conditioned self. You were socialized into your Ego Self through life’s events, the people who have surrounded you, and the beliefs based in fear that you took on about yourself at a very young age. Your True Self is your Spiritual Essence, and it is eternal.
It’s easy to tell which “Self” you’re coming from. Just close your eyes and conduct a quick inner body scan. If you feel tense, anxious, fearful, or are in any way stressed, you are in your False Self. You can FEEL it in your body. If, on the other hand, you feel peaceful, relaxed, “in the moment”, and blissful, you are in your True Self.
Here’s what it’s like living from your False Self:
You will notice friction, negative emotions, pain both mentally and physically, you have judgments, doubts and perhaps low self-esteem, and you engage in self-sabotage (such as procrastination, control issues, negative self-talk, perfectionism, people-pleasing, etc.). You hold on to anger and resentment.
Here’s what it’s like when you are living from your True Self:
Your inner body scan finds only peace, balance, harmony, wisdom, and all qualities that stem from your Authentic True Self: A BEING OF LOVE. Your True Self is connected to the Universe (God, Cosmic Energy, Nature, or your word of choice for the All That Is). There is no separation between you and this higher energy. Your True Self is based in love. It is highly intelligent, loving, lovable, at peace, and has a purpose for being here.
Only when you are coming from your True Self can you stand in your authentic power.
When you discover your True Self, and connect with it, your self-esteem is reestablished. You begin to realize the Truth of your being. From this place, you are connected to all the power of the Universe. This is your authentic power. When you stand in your authentic power you are free to create and you are supported in your endeavors, your relationships, and your life.
Discovering your True Self, and connecting to the powerful energy that is already within you, is life-changing and life-affirming. You begin to understand your purpose, why you are here. You begin to access guidance from within yourself that is coming from the energy of the Universe. Be still, listen, and be willing to tune in to it often.
From there, you will continue on an upward spiral of spiritual awakening and of achieving higher levels of consciousness. Life just keeps on getting better.
This may not resonate with you, but if it does, you are already on the path. Enjoy the ride. You have discovered your Authentic Power.
My Quick Tip: It begins with one of my favorite quotes:
You are never given a wish without also being given the power to make it come true. You may have to work for it, however.
– Richard Bach
What are you wishing for? What do you want to change in your life? Go inside, be still, and access your inner wisdom. You are connected to all the power of the Universe. You just may not have found the switch. Turning on your Authentic Power is about realizing that it’s already there. When you find it you will know, because you will enter a blissful state of finally being aligned with the TRUTH OF WHO YOU ARE. From that place, all of your wishes are fulfilled.
