We are so powerful

I want to write about power. I want to know how you sustain and nurture your personal power when the world tugs at you, all around you, moving you away from the adventure of being alive in order to make a living, telling you you need some thing in order to be happy, numbing you with it’s incessant bad entertainment and veering you off your path. I want to know how you compete in a world that only competes. Do you continue to compete or do you pave a new way? I want to know how you live in world that speaks a different language, that’s interested solely in results and the bottom line. How do you show up for the process? How do you speak- from your deepest knowing or is it what you think the world can handle, what they want to hear?

I am my most powerful when I speak and live my truth. When I honor my way of doing things, of relating to the world, and being in the world. I am my most powerful when I live what I know. In the deepest part of me. Not when I’m trying to figure it all out, not when I’m trying to solutionize my life. It’s when I let it go. When I completely surrender, I’ve opened the door to somewhere new, I’ve given myself the opportunity to rise to a new occasion.

I know I am more than what my mind can fathom.

We are so powerful.
