hey there lovelies and a very happy friday to you, wherever in the world you may be. today i wanted to share with you some thoughts about how to stand in your personal power.
i want to preface this by saying that i haven’t always and don’t always find this easy to do. not at all. i seem to have a default criticism mode that is attached to everything i do (which funnily enough doesn’t much apply when it comes to other people – strange huh?!).
anyhoo, let me give you some ideas from the practices and thoughts that have helped me along the way. perhaps they’ll help you too:
you, me, everyone – we’re perfect as we are. we’re not failures because we don’t fit into the 9-5 mould, or because we can’t lose the weight we want or for any reason at all! we are perfect and just as we’re meant to be. does this mean we don’t need to try/learn new things? no, of course not. but it does mean we are powerful and magical beings who should own that, respect that and allow it to elevate ourselves and our thoughts of love and kindness to ourselves each and every day.
our gifts are important and we should share them. don’t attach value to only the things that bring you financial success. sometimes, our most powerful gifts are the ones we give freely. and that is just perfect.
when we are working in line with our soul’s purpose, anything is possible. once we know we are doing the things that bring us joy in life, there’s no limit to what we can achieve, both individually and together.
we need to combine pride with humility. this is hard. being proud of ourselves and what we achieve is so necessary and so wonderful. silencing the mind monkeys and genuinely congratulating ourselves is really powerful. but we need to be able to ask for help too. two books i recommend that can give us an insight into the idea of asking for help and receiving it without pride are amanda palmer’s “the art of asking” and paolo coelho’s “aleph“. help is beautiful. self sufficiency is beautiful. both are beautiful.
the energy centre for your personal power is the solar plexus, so i thought i’d share the making of my solar plexus girl here with you too. enjoy!
here she is all finished so you can see her up close and available for adoption:
i think that there’s nothing more powerful than connecting with your energy centres, and that doing so reminds us to keep our important thoughts and tasks in mind as we go about our busy lives.
standing in our own personal power is such a rewarding thing to do that can benefit every area of your life – no matter who you may be.
here’s to a powerful life.
ps. if you want to work more deeply with me and truly unleash your inner creative magic and ignite your soul self then the sisterhood would be perfect for you.
