Deep within all of us, there is an infinite supply of power ready to be ignited. We have the power within to choose whether we react to people and situations in anger and fear, thus giving our power away…or to respond with Love and Truth. And as we respond in Love and Truth, we are not only empowering ourselves but we are empowering others too.
Thinking thoughts of love
We think thousands of thoughts a day. When we face people and experiences, we have thoughts which relate back to our own internal belief systems about life. The thought triggers an emotion and the emotion sparks an action. Our internal belief systems were constructed years ago, when we were still children by watching and learning from our parents and other adults around us. These belief systems construct our thoughts, which trigger our emotions and therefore direct our behaviour. As we choose to think loving thoughts, instead of thoughts of fear and anger, we begin to feel at peace and can then respond to challenging people and experiences with love, which in turn attracts experiences back to us which are loving and true to our values. And it all begins with our power to think whichever thought we choose.
As we choose our thoughts wisely and choose to think empowering thoughts of Love and Truth, rather than thoughts of fear and anger; we are empowering ourselves from within.
Only you know what’s best for you. And within you is a voice whispering all you need to know. As we choose to listen to the voice within instead of what everyone else says, we are able to make our choices from a place of power, according to the truth that lies within.
Letting go of the past
The point of power always lies in this moment, not in the past. As we are willing to let go of pain, fear, anger, guilt, shame and judgement of others and ourselves related to past experiences, we are physically letting go of emotion which lies trapped within us. As we hold onto the emotions related to the past, we are creating today’s experiences with these. And so we are creating experiences based in pain, fear, anger or shame. As we let go of the past emotions, we make space for the love within us to flow and we are open to receive love from all around us, through every experience.
A good way to release these emotions is to begin by just observing them and then allowing yourself to go into the emotion and truly feeling it, understanding and loving yourself through the experience. Allow yourself to cry without judgement, just love and understanding. Then find appreciation for the experience where the emotion rose from by realizing what you learnt and how it served you. Bring yourself back to this present moment by appreciating your life as it is now and acknowledging yourself for all you are and all you do.
Accepting what you deserve in life
We don’t get what we deserve, we get what we believe we deserve. If you believe that you deserve the best, then that’s what you will get. It all begins with realizing what you would truly love your life to look like and what you would truly love to have. As we begin focussing on what we do believe we deserve and allowing ourselves to accept that, we begin to receive experiences that we truly do deserve. It all begins with the thought: “I am willing to believe that I deserve the best”.
Growing in Love and Truth
Focussing our thoughts on Love; listening to ourselves, letting go of past emotions and accepting what we do really deserve in life, triggers a journey of growth in our experiences of life to move us towards our truth. As we love who we truly are, shadow and light, we begin to live from a place of truth. And as we step into our truth and respond to life with love, we truly begin to step into our power, which empowers others by giving them permission to do the same ~ Alison Livanos
