If you have read my blog for any amount of time you will know that I am a firm believer that the universe is in constant communication with each and every one of us. We need only to bring our heads up and pay attention. The universe uses all sorts of ways to get messages to us; signs, symbols, nature and thanks to the wonders of technology even the internet. If the message resonates deeply in you, then it’s a message from the universe.
Recently I was guided to three separate pieces of wisdom that combined have given me a platform to use for 2017.
The first message was actually in the form of a downloaded report from the internet marketing guru Jeff Walker, http://jeffwalker.com/ . It was something along the lines of, “Learn the secrets of the world’s most successful internet marketers.” I read the report and it wasn’t what I learned that was the message, it was how I felt after reading it.
Plain and simple I felt overwhelmed. These “experts” all talked about taking time to review the past year and then formulate plans for the upcoming year and create a schedule for the whole year including down time and creating goals and forging ahead and…..argh!
If this is how one needed to be to be successful I want no part of it.
But then I read my second message from the universe. Remember, all things have the capacity to be a messenger and this one came from Christine Kane’s blog, http://christinekane.com/ . Christine urged me to call back my power.
When you feel regret, anger, jealousy or any other negative emotion or when you agree to do something that you do not want to do or feel put out by someone else’s actions, you lose a little bit of you personal inner power. To become whole again, you need to call your power back into your energy body again.
There doesn’t need to be an elaborate ceremony. All you really need to do is consciously let go of the emotions that you still harbour from the event. Those emotions are blocking your power from returning to you. Forgive yourself, forgive who ever hurt you, just let it go. Then ask your power to come back to you. Release the block, forgive, and allow. Your energy wants to be with you, it will return.
The final and most powerful of the three messages that came to me was from a Facebook post from the author Liz Gilbert (Eat Pray Love, Big Magic) https://www.facebook.com/GilbertLiz/ Liz posted an essay entitled, “Start Knowing”. I highly recommend that you take the time to read it.
The synchronicity of these three messages was profound for me. First, I needed to finally understand that I am not a formulated kind of girl. I don’t do systems. I am way too creative to follow “proven strategies”. I do not want to be a follower and that is why, whenever I read one of these list of expert’s philosophies and tricks, I get all anxious and overwhelmed.
Once I got that through my thick skull, the other messages made perfect sense.
Do you really know how powerful you are? Do you understand what you have the capacity to create? Most folks don’t even use a thimble worth’s of their personal power until they are faced with a crisis.
But what if you could gather all of it back into yourself, fill your inner well and have access to it for your own purposes instead of allowing it to be drained a little bit at a time by outside forces. How powerful would you be then?
And if you had all your personal power back then you would have the step up to the plate and take responsibility for it, you would have to start knowing.
It’s the same as saying you have unique gifts, you know things and have perspectives that no other soul has. Start knowing it. Own it, share it.
Start knowing that you need to offer what you know to the world.
Start knowing that your unique kind of wisdom is needed right now.
Start knowing that no one can do it for you but you.
Start knowing you are powerful.
Start knowing that you and what you know matters.
With these three messages the universe gifted me with some power wisdom. A lesson that I needed and was only now ready to here. It used a resource that was the most likely way for me to access the lesson and for that, I am grateful.
This December, your task, should accept it , is to etch out some quite time to reflect, consider the lessons I learned from these messages that the universe offered up to me and how you might apply them in your own life in 2017.
Don’t compare yourself and your progress to others, especially those who are light years farther down the road. You are an unique soul, how could anybody else know what path you need to take in order to achieve your dreams.
Instead call back your personal power. Take back what belongs to you. When you stand in your own power, you are able to take full control of your destiny.
Start knowing what it is that only you and your uniqueness knows. You’ve got your power back, start using it by sharing it with your loved ones, your community, your tribe and the world.
Friends don’t knowingly let friends give their personal power away. Help and friend and share this post.
