Stand in Your Power

I apologize for the delay in posting but I took some time out in January to ground myself after the holidays and really create focused intentions for the new year. This year I am setting the intention of standing in my power. More recently I’ve began to take notice of my patterns in life and realized how much of my personal power I have been consistently giving away throughout the years. More often than I care to admit I’ve found myself in positions where I so easily give my personal power away. Whether its allowing someone to treat me in a way that I’m not entirely comfortable with or doesn’t make me feel good. Or its me being passive about my goals and desires because let’s face it sometimes its just easier to be passive and stay complacent in the victim role, settling for mediocrity, because it’s a safe comfortable space. Well, I choose to make a change in my life and take back my power. In my previous post I had discussed surrendering the need for control and in a way this is an extension of that. I realized this past year how little control we have over what happens around us. But what we have total control over is our reactions, perspectives, and how we choose to approach things. These choices in turn put out energy which can help attract things, people, and situations that are more in line with the energy we want to attract.
Really, the truth is that whenever I stand in my personal power, meaning I love and respect myself and that is reflected by the loving choices that I make for my mind, body, and soul, life flows beautifully. The universe always meets me half way and lights my path. So this year, I’m quitting the excuses and holding myself accountable. This year I actively choose to stand in my power, speak my truth, and go forth in my life fearlessly. Choosing to place unwavering faith in the infinite possibilities of the universe. I choose to hold myself accountable and meet the universe half-way. I hope you choose to do the same. After all, as Marianne Williamson once said:
“ 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.  We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as a children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
