What does it mean to step into my power? I’ve been mulling over this one for a little while inspired by some workshops I attended recently. It’s about looking within and being honest with myself. Am I living the life I truly want to be living? Am I ok in this situation, is this working for me, do I feel at peace? On the whole the answer is very much yes and there are some areas that float through my mind which make me stop and think no.
If I stepped into my power what would that look like, how would I feel, what impact would it have on other areas of my life? Take my annoying social media addiction for example, what is that all about? If I start being honest with why I spend so much time on-line I can create a different outcome for myself. The answers are sometimes easy to access, like with any addiction I am loosing myself in cyber space to keep busy and avoid feeling something – ah that old chestnut.
There are others areas where I am digging deep and wading through some serious mud, experiencing fear and hoping to get to a place of acceptance and love. Stepping into your power can be hardcore when you are facing the shadows head on, but it can also be really fluid and incredibly beautiful as you connect with who you are and fulfilling the life you dream to live.
