courageously standing in your power
There is nothing more attractive than you standing in your power full of courage and worthiness. You feel confident, strong, ooze charm, and are appealing. People are drawn to you and want to spend time in your shining presence wondering if any of it might rub off onto them effortlessly through some unseen magical formula.
If only it was that simple to stand in your power. In reality it takes time to get to that point where you feel comfortable in your own skin. You have to shift through layers of old perceptions that have become your reality. And these have a habit of sticking to us like super glue. However, only you can be responsible for how you see yourself. Often our fear of our own power is the fear of becoming who we truly are.
When I started out on finding out who I was, I was scared. I had no clue what that looked like to feel worthy and courageous. All I could see was this big black cloud around me full of negativity, anger, hurt and aggression. I had developed this perception of myself as a form of protection from being brought up in a damaging and abusive home that did not feel safe and loving.
I could not even begin to imagine myself as being beautiful, kind, courageous, intelligent, worthy, and so on. No matter what friends and loved ones said to me, I could not translate that into my heart. I could not own it as all those wonderful compliments did not apply to me. All I could see and feel was the negative which was so painful.
being true to yourself
What a different story that is today. When you stand in your own power you are being true to yourself using your own courageous voice and finding your own path in this world. Life is vibrant, enjoyable, loving, fun, adventurous, safe, and kind. You look out into the world and see its beauty and magnificent with you see yourself in there.
You realise you have choices on how you want to be and feel in your life. It is so very liberating and exciting. It is well worth your while starting now to find the beauty and power in you.
A tip on how to do this is to take quiet time each and every day. As it is in this stillness where you will hear your own powerful voice and find your true person. Enjoy.
