The recent lunar eclipse was very powerful in sparking transformation through revealing patterns in our lives that no longer serve us. I’ve noticed a pattern in myself and other entrepreneurs that holds them back from earning the money they desire. It all comes down to power and the fact that in order to reach new heights in our businesses, in terms of professional and financial growth, we need to become more powerful. The first step is recognising how we’re unconsciously giving our power away…
There are times in my life when I have been a victim – a victim of circumstance so I thought. I wondered why things often didn’t work out in my favour and how I got so ‘unlucky’. I used to push to create the things that I wanted, forcing them to happen, or if I couldn’t, I lived out the fantasy in my mind. Little did I realize that I was unconsciously creating these scenarios to teach me about power.
It is very common for us to relinquish our power, to give it away, without realizing. We do this on a daily basis sometimes, and it becomes a habitual cycle of disempowerment. For example, some of the comments we make are actually disempowering:
“My relationship is falling apart”
“My health is in shambles”
“I can’t seem to make enough money”
These are the types of thoughts that make us feel powerless. When we feel powerless, we get stuck in a cycle of creating difficult situations that make us feel even more powerless.
So what is power?
