Interessant artikkel om personlig kraft og hvordan vi kan forstå den og bruke den.
By first exploring where we think we are not powerful, we can then tap into where our power lies as an individual.
The most expansive questions we can ask ourselves as human beings, and often the first questions we ask when we first awaken, are "Who am I?" "What is my mission?" "How can I become/express my highest self?" "Why are we here?" "What is this planet all about?"
One of the most poignant things to find out is that we limit our own capacity to see the answers to those questions through energetic, mental, emotional and perceptual restrictions. We RESTRICT ourselves. And why do we do that? For at least two reasons, one is so that we can play a limited game, within limited parameters, and the second is a fear that if we become completely unrestricted, we would harm others.
All these restrictions reflect the fear we have to our own personal POWER.
What is power?
Power is the ability to do, and it is CHI.
The more ability to do we have, and the more Chi, the more "powerful" we are. Both in our own life and in society at large. As an example, money is a representative of Chi and ability to do. If you had 20 Billion dollars in the bank, would you be able to do more than you are able to now? This brings money back from all the energetic wrappings and wrongnesses that it has been painted with, to its most simple role: representation of power (chi and ability to do). The program of self gratification vs empowering our collective experience is very prominent when we look at what we would do with all that power.
We are taught over and over again that power corrupts, power is abused, it will take us over and rule us, power is BAD. Who teaches us this? People in power. Now, in these previous two sentences, replace the word "power" with the word "money" and you will start to get a real feel for how we agree to be dissempowered, even in the "new age" networks: We are taught over and over again that money corrupts, money is abused, it will take us over and rule us, money is BAD. Who teaches us this? People with money.
The fact is that the relationship between our manifesting power, our wealth, our capacity to do and our Chi, is often equal to how we feel about power and how we feel about money. And that's NO COINCIDENCE.
We are taught to fear and reject our own power, and to feel money is evil, from the very beginning of our lives. We are taught this by those very same people who are themselves in power because if we realized, stepped into, and used our power, their power would be shown for what it is, nothing more than smoke and mirrors. Those same people have created a financial model which is indeed nothing but smoke and mirrors which diverts all chi, money, and power directly to them.
Who are "they"? They are every single being you have placed in authority over you. Anyone who can tell you what to do and you will do it even though it feels wrong. Anyone who you have given the capacity to remove stuff from your life without your "consent", such as a job, electricity, water, shelter, food, communication, love, comfort, joy... Anyone who you feel is to "blame" for your suffering, pain, distress, or the suffering, pain and distress of others.
"They" are our OWN creation to stop us from being powerful. It is like a self feeding loop.
So, where does YOUR POWER lie?" forts.
