Personal empowerment seems to mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people from feminism and shouting about your rights or having confidence, to being an out and out bitch and whilst personal empowerment can result in some of these things (minus the bitch) for me personal empowerment means so much more.
What Personal Empowerment Means to ME…
For me, personal empowerment revolves around self-awareness. An awareness of your personality (your values, principles, likes & dislikes) as well as an awareness of our talents & abilities, our thoughts, our emotions, our physical bodies and that element of choice we all have in any situation, But it doesn’t stop there because I believe it also involves an awareness of our personal source of power, that power that is available to all of us at all times. Call it God, Universe, Allah, Mother Nature, Flow whatever you are calling it, this force is working for us and through us all. Personal empowerment is about all of these things
Why So Many Feel Powerless…
We have so much power at our fingertips yet so many of us live much of our lives feeling helpless, cheated, depressed, anxious and bunch of other things. This is because we either are not aware of ourselves at all levels (mentally, emotionally and spiritually) or we are aware yet betray ourselves and what I mean by ‘betray ourselves’ is that we don’t live in alignment with what we claim to be aware of.
The Keys to The Personal Power Kingdom…
There is no access to your personal power without an awareness and an alignment with ourselves and our experiences as well as having enough self-love to take positive action. When we do this we live in aligned. When we do this we live empowered.
Now, there those who would say that once you access this power all your challenges melt away and life becomes a dream. I personally would like to slap all of those people. There is no life without challenges, this is what we are here for, to be challenged, to grow, to experience. However, I will say this, when we tap into this power we get to love ourselves in a deeper and more real way. When we tap into this power we also tap into the strength to face and overcome life’s challenges. We experience a deeper level of confidence. We live a life with purpose and meaning, we experience true inner wisdom, access to personal guidance and so much more.
No matter the challenge you don’t have to walk around feeling lost, frustrated, helpless, unworthy or any of the other negative, energy-sucking emotions.
