How often do you find yourself encountering situations that steal your power? Find yourself trying to retrieve it from another or being left feeling diminished after engaging in life circumstances or interactions with others that diminish who you are?
You know those situations I’m talking about. Conflict that never resolves and shows itself in repeating patterns. Feeling unloved because someone doesn’t see or value who you are or where you are coming from. Those power play interactions that occur because of insecurity. Feeling judgement from another and taking it on for way too long.
Or how about, every time you lament about not having enough money or being in the wrong job and just about any life circumstance that is not working for you right now. How much power are you giving all this right now?
To be honest, I encounter this kind of power challenge everyday. The challenge of staying true to who I am and choosing to live from a place of love & inSpiration is not really a walk in the park and being that you and I both live in an egoic centered world, I’m sure this could be true for you too.
Just this week I have been focussing on steeling myself to combat some strong energies with work and home that detract from the abundant and creative lifestyle I choose to live. In a lot of ways I’m still learning to live this new me. The me, that FULLY loves and accepts who I truly am, the Divine Spirit within and how to live my expression of this on a day to day basis.
Giving our power to another is so easily done and often it is an unconscious behaviour that we don’t even realise it is happening until we are left feeling shitty. Our first instinct is to call forth our will, yet in doing so these ill conceived interactions easily make way for conflict or being left walking away with that energetic feeling of having just been trampled on. Once we come into awareness of what is really occurring, resolving these situations can become even harder when you try to make the choice of behaving differently and choosing love over ego.
And this is where I caught myself in a tangle this week.
When faced with confrontation or situations you know are not working for you, but right now you for whatever reason can’t walk away from, it is natural instinct to try and steady yourself, to harden your resolve and push back in some way. Whether with your words, actions or as I was your energy, if you are conscious and able to do this. Trying to steady myself, strengthen my resolve to be stronger in who I am and mentalling disengaging my energy from energies that do not serve me, my purpose and who I am.
Only, all I was doing was creating imbalance and weakening my position. Which was resulting in a mental struggles I was losing control with and a growing sense of disconnection thereby leading me further away from who I truly am. That is until I hit upon the right Soul Conversation during my walk this morning.
As I asked “What do I need to do to open my heart more?”
Immediately I felt a flow of energy, coupled with the realisation that how I was approaching things was not allowing me to fully love and accept myself. It wasn’t allowing me to operate with a sense of Oneness and connection, which is an important aspect of who I am. I was remind that in allowing this energy of my Divine Spirit to flow that I will be taken care of, that my needs will be met and then some, and that the true power lies in being yourself and allowing others to choose whether this is for them or not.
This is not an easy thing to achieve and action in life, especially when those others are your family, those you love and are people important to you. We all have a deep seated need to be accepted and loved, yet this often forms the base of a lot of disharmony in life. It is this need that drives people pleasing behaviour, or the need to keep the peace and making life choices out of obligation.
As I mentioned earlier, everyday we are ongoingly bombarded by situations that challenge you to be who you truly are, to confront situation that do not align with your Spirit, be it people, environments or current life circumstances, and while not every situation can be let go of or resolved right now to your hearts desire, here are some tips to help you walk through these situations with LOVE.
Create a loving environment for yourself.
- Nurture yourself and give to yourself in ways that exude self love.
- Take time out with friends and specifically people who do speak to your Spirit.
- Pamper yourself with a massage,a bath or anything that says “I’m doing this because I love me”.
- Buy yourself that present you’ve been holding off spending money on.
Do what gives you strength.
This is usually something you are passionate about, something you love doing and inSpires you. For me this is my work and helping other people to shine with their Spirit.
Being of service is one of the Seven Soul States of Grace, and is an inherent aspect of the Soul when in alignment with Divine Spirit, so helping another from a sense of servitude will always inSpire JOY.
Use your journal or even my Daily Soul Conversation inSight cards to keep your awareness at its optimum, so you make better choices daily.
And it will keep you centered in clarity.
Engage in regular moments of saying to yourself “It’s ok – I love you”. Be gentle on yourself and let go of the need to beat up on yourself, especially in those moments where Love seems to have left the building. Go easy, it is all a learning curve and one that will see Love, grow and expand in your life with every moment you choose it.
Remember, what you give your attention to, expands in your life.
And lastly, trust that you’ll be guided to know the right moves to make
Aligning with love and the Divine Spirit within you will strengthen your intuition. You will be guided to know what to do and when to do it. What to say and what to walk away from. And if your not sure or feel you don’t have those answers, then ask God, your Spirit guides, your Angels or what ever guidance source is right for you to show you the way forward to resolving whatever it is you need to.
I’d love to know how this all might help you or even what challenges you each day as you try to stay true the Divine Spirit within you, so please post a comment and if you feel this blog post may help a friend, please do share. Thank you.
