There is a lot going on in our lives that is challenging. It is also about the way we are able to deal with the ones that are bringing up old and stuck energies. The way how energy is being blocked is also an indication of how we are able to handle them. In our every day to day life we face many challenges, some are small other are more significant. It shows us how we feel towards issues that have to do with the sense of power we have. Power in itself is a neutral energy. Yet the way we deal with this, is influencing the outcome of any situation that is challenging. The more we can trust or feel empowered, the better we can deal with it.
So when do you feel empowered and what need you to do if not? The balance between power and powerless is fragile at times. When we have been in a situation that was really demanding and the infliction left you with the sense of feeling powerless. Therein lies the challenge again. Especially when it comes with fear and violence, as well denigration and humiliation. Our whole life we are being challenged with these energy flows. Power is the most important lesson we as a human race need to learn to be used in a positive way. Choices we make in any given situation is colored by the definition of power we have. As well how domination is being part of power. Our history as well the present is showing us so many examples of the abuse of power, it is sometimes hard to see the positive use of power in order to empower everyone concerned.
Isn’t that what we all really are being asked for? How can I bring in empowerment in my life as well others? Because empowerment is about the ability to assist every one you meet , either family and friends, co-workers as well strangers you meet. What is it that I need to feel the power within me to deal with challenges and the day to day life? As it works from within to without in sharing as well relating. The need to work with the energy that is been triggered in this area, has to do with the experiences I encountered either way. Every moment I felt someone wanted to use their power in a negative way, as in damaging and stepping over boundaries, I felt this trigger from deep within. All my life I had to learn to step out of a conflict instead of going full throttle when it came to this game of power.
I learned to read between the lines as well, the mechanism of this pattern about power. Personal power is something you can learn by growing and releasing emotional wounds that has had their imprint on yourself. Not just my own triggers, I could see how someone could act or react from the fear that comes with being overpowered. It is a complex energy tool to deal with, because it has all these seductions. We all want to be safe, have a roof over our head, have food on the table every day, the basics we need to feel that way. Growing up in a society where only a few are in that position, is totally different as to growing up in the safety of a household where the challenges are not that outspoken.
We all now the way how tyranny is taken control over a lot of people, leaving them powerless in a certain way being suppressed with force and violence. This causes a spiral of negative energy that has its impact on generation after generation. Our world is being dictated by dualism, as in its either this way or that way in the eyes of some. There is a lot of difficulty then to find a middle ground between groups, even individuals within their family. We only have to look at the amount of refugees at the moment, leaving their countries on the run and searching freedom to get some of their empowerment back. As in control over their situation, which is not necessarily the same as feeling the strength of having some power from within.
We can only learn through experiences to know which is empowering and which is not. We know the difference because one way will make us feel good and the other way will only add more fear or negativity. You might say some people love the feeling having power over someone, or maybe groups, or nations. I believe they are not in a position to empower themselves. Most of the times, they act and react out of a deep fear, which hardens the emotional reactions. It is about acting and reacting for us in our daily lives. Learning through our challenges. Making choices, in order to balance or heal the inner need of having the ability to react out of love instead of fear. How do I create and what do I wish not just for myself, for others as well.
In order to bring in the energy of empowerment, it requires the wish to bring out the best of yourself. By doing so, we can make this inner connection with the energy of power through our heart. Fueling with love, the wounds can be addressed and healed. Coming from love, we can always be able to see each other without the wish to inflict any harm on them. Then we can say we are not opposites any longer. We can sit at the round table again, the circle of life completion, in which we all can bring in the loving positive energy to empower each other. Not only want to be the best you can be. It is about how you want to make the other feel as well. What is needed to assist in this process of empowerment. To be able to see the ways to bring in that loving assistance. Not for your own gain, for the higher good of everyone, including yourself.
Addressing my fears that are hidden now coming to surface, with love and compassion, enables me to allow, acknowledge, accept, release as well heal those emotional wounds. Every step I take will bring in more positive and loving energy which is the foundation of empowerment. Forgiveness for myself as well towards others is part of this process. At times even the hardest thing to do. Till you remember, their actions didn’t came from love, hence it comes from fear. Compassion with a soul that acts out of fear, isn’t something we were taught. Yet to me, in order to work with this energy of power, I only want to do so out of Love in order to create a change. My heart feels for those that have lost themselves in this process of fear, that the only way they feel empowered is through abuse and violation. They have the hardest path to walk because they lost their innocence.
Accepting is not the same as agreeing. Anger is as much part of the healing process on my way to empowerment. Sorrow and tears are being shed, for myself as well those who inflicted it upon me. To feel free from any restraints is my way of empowering myself. To be able to stand tall, not out of fear, yet just filled with Love. Standing up and raising my voice when I encounter any situation where the balance is lost. Am I my brother’s keeper? No, yet I am responsible for every act of violence, if I don’t speak up against it. We all need to be our brother’s keepers in a way. Taking our responsibility for those who are weak, in order to create empowerment again. We can create an environment together where we empower each other as well ourselves. It all starts within, it all comes from within. Make Love the guideline to improve not just your own life, but that for all who are part of your community, family and friends.
