🐍 Power is such a loaded word. 🐍
We dislike or are jealous of people who have too much of it. Or we admire people who have a lot of it wondering how they did it. "They must have been born with it."
On the other hand, we disown our own power. We deny ourselves of it, succumbing instead to the power of others. Or we use it in distorted ways, manipulatively or as a power over others. But this isn't true power.
And most of this is all going on unconsciously.
The truth is, most of us have an unhealthy relationship to power - ours or that of others.
We aren't embodying our true power. We don't even know what that is.
We sacrifice ourselves, our voices, & our lives, in order to receive something we think we want (love, attention, acceptance, money, sex, or we settle for some distorted form of power).
We wait for permission from the outside. We follow the paths and approval of others instead of our own hearts. We wallow in the victim mentality, not owning up to take responsibility for our lives.
We don't believe in ourselves, our capabilities, our wisdom, or our hearts. We don't believe our unique make-up is inherently valuable and worthy unconditionally.
We are all trained to look outside instead of internally; instead of anchoring in our own power.
Our shadows around power aren't easy to see, as they live deep in unconscious layers, formed in our familial and social conditioning.
One of the first places to see these shadows - is to be aware of your body, your sensations, & your energy.
You can feel when you are stepping out of your power. It may feel gross or icky. There may be a collapsing or "black hole" sensation, a sharp pain, a digestive upset. You may feel weak in your core, feel "mushy" with no boundaries, or like you are being walked all over.
☄️ This is exactly where the transformation happens. The power of reclaiming your power in these moments is MASSIVE!
☄️ Here, you are breaking the spell. You are stopping the sabotage. You are ending patterns that collectively haunt and destroy our world. You are claiming your power as the creator of your life.
This work is foundational in 𝗔𝗹𝘁𝗮𝗿𝘀 𝗼𝗳 𝗪𝗶𝘀𝗱𝗼𝗺. In this 10-week journey for women, that begins next week, we take stock of:
🐍 Where do we shy away, deny or give our power away?
🐍 Where do we use our energies to manipulate others?
🐍 What does power even mean to us, in a world where distortions are the norm?
🐍 What is healthy and aligned power, even when we don't see it often in those around us?
In 𝗔𝗹𝘁𝗮𝗿𝘀 𝗼𝗳 𝗪𝗶𝘀𝗱𝗼𝗺, we work with plant medicines, energetic practices, and ritual to shift these old patterns.
☄️ To retrain our energies to know what true power feels like.
☄️ To reclaim our own power in a healthy way.
☄️ To disrupt the status quo.
If you are interested to join us on this potent journey, send me a message. We have a few spaces left and we begin August 4!
Here's to all of us finding our aligned power. The world needs it!
