Stand In Your PowerEmail This Post
In this world there will always be some people who, for whatever constellation of reasons, need to tear down others in order to feel okay about themselves. There will always be people that cross our paths to criticize us and to attempt to dump a chunk of their own lostness, brokenness, and negativity upon us.
This experience can be painful. This experience can cause a young soul to feel abandoned. This experience when it comes from a parent can devastate a life. This experience can cause us to doubt ourselves, if only for a minute, no matter where we are in life or how much we may have accomplished or be in the process of accomplishing.
Be aware that just a drop of negativity from someone criticizing, attacking, and often projecting their own dissatisfaction with themselves onto you can permeate your positive energy if you let it. Each one of us has a choice to make each and every time we encounter the negative to destructive that will come our way. We can engage it, doubt ourselves, be wounded by it, get all upset about, or try to defend ourselves against it. We can let it define our reality if we aren’t careful too.
Or, we can refuse to engage it at all. We can leave it with its source. We can have enough faith and trust in ourselves and our own unfolding life process and purpose to know that we are not the source of what the other person is hurling our way. We can stand back. We can stand in our power.
You can stand in your own power. You have the choice to make. You can choose to be affected by someone else or you can stand in the power of what you know to be true about who you really are and why it is that you do what it is that you do.
Women standing in their own power has culturally been frowned upon throughout history. I say that is now ancient history. Or it can be ancient history the minute a woman, today, decides that she can and will stand in her own power.
Abuse often negates this self knowledge. Abuse often leaves us feeling as if we are powerless and that we somehow deserve the negative toxic "stuff" that others may attempt to dump upon us. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The truth is that each and every one of us innately has a sacred spiritual self that holds its own power. The trick is getting in touch with this self and being aware of this spiritual warrior within you.
Standing in your power isn’t about wielding power of control or dominance over anyone. Standing in your power is about not engaging anyone who seeks to wield power, control, or dominance, in any shape or form, over you.
Standing in your power is about walking your life’s journey, your own way, because it is your life and your journey. It is your purpose. It is uniquely individual to just you.
Standing in your power means getting comfortable enough in your being and your own skin to live your life not only aware of your soul force and its purpose but actively engaging your spiritual warrior in living in and through your own divine truth.
Standing in your own power is living in a spiritually aware way that engages the totality of what it means to be fully you. That celebrates the sacred connection you have to God, your higher power, or whatever your spiritual source may be.
When we stand in our own power actively fully engaged in our own sacred unfolding process in life we can lay down the need to compete. We can be unaffected by the negative and toxic projections of others. We can choose to disengage the emotional drama of those who are still seeking to find not only their own "authentic self" but their own personal power.
Stand in your own power and you will not need validation from others. Stand in your own power and all that you need will become crystal clear to you.
Set an intention today, and each and every day, to stand in your own power and to accept personal responsibility for all that that entails. Let no one dissuade you from being fully you.
