Some assume a powerful presence in the world is reserved for those with an innovative mission, voice, or reach such as Oprah, Steve Jobs, or Mark Zuckerberg. The truth is, we are all inherently powerful just by design!
This means your power is as timely, relevant, and worthy as anyone’s.
When we keep our power confined to the dimensions of inherited or adopted mindsets, we are doing a disservice to ourselves and the world, and, ultimately, may find ourselves continually searching for our purpose.
Our purpose is to align what we instinctively know as our truth, what we think, what we say, and what we do.
One objective as a spiritual being experiencing in a human body is to project our highest, most aligned selves. There are supplemental experiences at our disposal, if we choose, such as further studies as well as surrounding ourselves with like-integrity and like-minded people on similar paths who can assist us in reaching our fullest potential.
Destructive habits are picked up just like constructive habits; with practice!
The more we focus on thinking, behaving, speaking, and sharing what we know without filters and with confidence, the more authentic we become. The more authentic we become, the more authentic experiences and people we attract!
Here are 3 ways you may be subconsciously diminishing your power:
1) You have trouble accepting compliments.
A universal truth: When we deflect positive feedback, love, or earned recognition…we are showing the universe where we stand with ourselves. The Universe can only deliver experiences that match our vibration and inner climate, so our highest soul response to any positive feedback is always “Thank you!”
2) You are non-committal.
Not stating our true stance at any given time conveniently gives us an out. For example, “I’ll try”, “I’m sorry”, “We’ll see”, and “Maybe” are self-serving setups. Let’s face it, not much follow through happens after we state some of these statements. One way to raise your power and align with your higher self is replacing these statements with affirmations such as: “I will!”, “I know!”, and “I can!”
3) Your output doesn’t align with your core values.
When our core values align with our inner truth and knowing, we can align the actions, responses, and thoughts that allow our real power to be seen, heard, and received in ways that impact our lives and the world!
