In a world full of societal pressures and constant over stimulation, people have lost touch with their senses and sensuality, their ability to receive pleasure, and the ability to listen to themselves. The terrifying part is that if they decide to listen to their internal voice, a lot of power and also responsibility for their life choices comes with it. They begin to run their own lives, instead of letting their lives run them.
Most people don’t truly desire to be Powerful, because “With Great Power comes Great Responsibility” (Spiderman, Marvel Comics). Most desire to borrow power from others through reliance or manipulation, from which they receive a false sense of ego power. It’s not just lying, cheating or stealing that is a part of this manipulation, it’s manipulating who you truly are internally, in order to achieve or receive a certain result from the external world. It’s fishing for compliments, it’s putting yourself in a situation where you seek constant external validation, it’s giving your power away, rather than embracing the potential thats inside. It’s not being true to yourself.
You’ll begin to recognize when you are betraying your truth when you begin to listen to your body, and the sensations of repulsion will become more noticeable the more you pay attention. It’s that sick feeling in your gut that something is not quite right. If you ever wished that you had a voice inside that told you always when something was wrong or right for you, your wish has been granted. Your internal compass is ready to awaken.
The other way that people typically deal with power is to borrow it from someone or somewhere else. They align themselves with a company or a public figure, a belief system, religion, or even a sports team that seems to give them power, because they stand behind it.
People communicate “I’m popular and successful because I’m a Yankees fan” (because they are in high demand and are worth a lot of money). Or “Didn’t you know that I work for this Top 500 Company and my Title is XYZ?”, (and therefore I must be a top notch million dollar employee).
Not only do people define themselves with their associations, but they become so externalized, that the line of breadcrumbs back to their true identity becomes so sparse, so bare that the journey home seems nearly impossible. But I assure you it’s not. There are challenges along the road, but it is only as challenging as you decide it will be, and how much you fight against your truth.
People are afraid of what they will see when they look inside, as Marianne Williamson says so beautifully,
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.
Once we find our Power inside, there is no reason to ever be jealous of another, as we are all part of one, and reflect each other in some way of what we do or don’t want. Jealousy only exudes lack and gives away your Power.
The world inside is inherently so much more powerful and beautiful than any external validation they could ever receive, or any power they could borrow from another. Are you ready to step into your personal power?
