“Power is of two kinds. One is obtained by the fear of punishment and the other by acts of love. Power based on love is a thousand times more effective and permanent then the one derived from fear of punishment.” Mahatma Gandhi
What is True Power?
We live in a world where power has meant having authority or control over others, to be superior to others, to be dominant. This kind of power causes separation and discontent.
True Power is finding the power within your own Self. Living with an internal authority where you choose to behave and act in accordance to your highest Self, what really feels right to you rather than what some external authority has told you to do. In all relationships, even those in which one person has more authority than another, it is more effective to bring the best out in each person and uncover their full potential. This allows them to access their full creativity and effectiveness and your business, family, or partnership will thrive.
Of course this True Power requires each person to know themselves and take full responsibility for their footprint in the world and in their relationships. It also means we must listen to each other and help each of us access our own truth and gifts.
Communicate openly and honestly
Essential too, is the ability to communicate openly and honestly from your heart. Power over others seems easier because those in authority can dominate and not look within themselves and those not in authority can just coast along, doing just enough. This does not allow us to access the deeper parts of ourselves, to get to know who we truly are, what we really have to offer. To do this we must let down our defensiveness and protectiveness and be vulnerable with ourselves and others.
We all know how it feels to be in a relationship where we feel powerless, where we are not being respected or heard, where we feel dismissed or not listened to, where what we are doing is not honored. How much more are we capable of when we feel honored and respected?
True Power is the power that is found within vulnerability, where we know and love who we are, the parts we like and the parts we don’t. Accept and Trust in who you are and what you have to offer and you won’t feel the need to keep others beneath you so you can feel more elevated. Find that vibration in the beauty and courage of Being You
IMPORTANT: I have moved to a new scheduling system. I apologize for the few mishaps while this transition has been in progress. My APP will not be useful anymore but I hope to have that again soon. It did not meet all I wanted to accomplish. I hope this new site will be convenient for you and easy to use. Please let me know if you have any difficulty. The schedule buttons on my website will take you right there. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
Have a wonderful week.
Love and Light
