Being Empowered

At certain times in life we can reach a point where we feel powerless; powerless to that which is happening either directly to us or around us.
At these times however real it may feel, this feeling of powerlessness is an illusion.

We always have power

Why?

Because we always have choice – no matter what the situation or circumstance,
We have the most important choice

That of how we show up.

So how can we go from feeing powerless to being empowered

1.) In how we choose to be
2.) In how we choose to focus
3.) In what we choose to do

Ultimately it is the energy we choose to bring to any situation.

And this energy is the most powerful thing that we have – we choose what we bring to any circumstance and through doing so we create a ripple effect. We can choose the effect we wish to create and from here help those around us too.

With us all being energy, we are never powerless, we are creative beings, giving power to that which we choose through our own awareness. We all can make and create a difference within this world, starting with ourselves. We get to choose how, and in doing this we will influence others too.

Whether winter or summer
You still have a choice
Even though it may not feel that way,
You always have power
You always have a voice 💗

The most important thing to realise is our power lies within us, not outside of us. So if ever your feeling powerless, come back to this truth, it’s from here we create change in our lives to begin with. Know that it is always you who decides how you show up today, on what you choose to focus on and on the energy you wish to create for your life and those around you.

As Gandhi so famously stated;

“Be the change you wish to see in the world”

It starts with us. Create from within and stay in charge. 💗

The lesson of value

Why is it so often only when we lose something that we appreciate it’s real value, How can we begin to value things more before this point?

In my own experience I have come to realise how important some things are only when it was too late

Like life was somehow teaching me, here, look at what you already have;

Whether that be with money, friendships, support or even states of being,

And more than anything life teaches me how important gratitude is,
Perhaps this is why we need this duality in life, for without it how could we possibly know or appreciate those good things.

Additionally, this is why gratitude is so important, not only important but essential. In consistently practicing gratitude, we recognise the value here and now. Then not always needing the comparison.

Ultimately however it does come down to our choice of focus. We can see what we have or perceive what we don’t have and as part of nature what we consistently give energy to will increase.

Start with value;
Recognise all you are, all you already are, have done and are doing.

As beings of nature we naturally evolve. In keeping our focus on what we’re grateful for as well where we’re heading, then all will evolve in the right direction.

Most often where we are right now, we already have more than enough, and we always are of infinite value.

To truly value something
Is to be with it completely,
Giving every effort in that moment

With that;

The only answer,
Here and now
Can always be gratitude 💗
