powerful beyond measure3

I have a difficult relationship with ‘power’. I don’t want to be ‘powerful’. It’s evil, no? Imposing your will on others … how dare you. They should do their own thing. I don’t want to make waves. I crave peace and calm. My hippie nature wants to be laidback and easy going.

But I have learned that there is a huge difference between ‘ruling the world’ and ‘ruling your world.’

Most of us, as we have gone through life, have left a trail of our own power. Whoops, screwed that up, better avoid going there.

She does not care for me at all. I am not going there either. And if I have to, I will stay clenched up and protective. Such an unpleasant experience, being around negative people who don’t ‘get you’. I will have to defend myself, my viewpoints, stand firm and closed.

All of a sudden, we’re living this small life of avoiding this and that, them and so on, because we’ve given away our power to them.

I call all of my power back to me. I am whole and complete.

I have been going through a really challenging transitioning period in my life full of growth and new possibilities.

During the day, when I find myself diminished and wallowing in negative emotions of fear, anxiety and anger, I remind myself of this mantra. I have been drumming it on my djembe drum as a reminder.

I call all of my power back to me. I am whole and complete.

It is a reminder to me that not everyone needs to ‘get me’ and that I don’t need to constantly defend myself and my views.

That when I am authentic and true and honest, I am drawing to me the life I truly want to live.

*  Ah, yes, so this is where I got the idea, and she maybe even said it better than me in her article herehttp://www.daniellelaporte.com/power-back-to-me-now/  Oh well, not going to keep me from saying my piece … peace. 🙂 ❤
