To claim your power might seem like something you have to do, something that you have to fight for or some behaviour that you have to add into your life. However, empowerment is more about what you let go of.
In this week's guidance we were told to let go of what doesn't empower you. How do we even do that?
The answer is in self-awareness, which is another way of saying listening to your inner guidance.
So what in your life makes you feel small? What diminishes your energy? What makes you step back? What makes you shy away? What makes you go quiet? What makes you tense?
All of these feelings are guidance that these are things that don't empower you & you can choose not to have them in your life.
That doesn't mean fight them to change them, it means just let them go.
Socrates said "The secret to change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new."
What are the things in your life that make you feel great? That make you feel big, confident, happy, relaxed, powerful,..? This is your guidance too. Focus on those things, say yes to them in your life.
So claiming your power isn't about trying to change what is in your life to make you feel better, it's not about taking those things that make you feel bad & pretending they make you feel good, it's not about fighting for the world to be a place that will make you feel better. It's just about choosing what does make you feel better. It's about choosing what allows your energy to grow.
What can you let go of today that diminishes your energy? Tell us in the comments!
