Sometimes the idea of power can be viewed in a negative light, which is completely understandable when we see the numerous ways power has been misused in our world. Many of us love the quote from Jimi Hendrix: “When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.” (My heart smiles when I see this on a bumper sticker!) Yet, the power I want to embrace isn’t about power over anything or anyone at all; it is our inner power – our essence – where Love and Power are One.
Whether I’m doing one-on-one Spiritual Mentoring or speaking to large groups, it is my intention to empower others by acknowledging the powerful beings that we all are. It is my vision that we individually and collectively step into our Power as human-spiritual beings; to reunite Love and Power in ourselves as well as in our world.
When I explored the word power there were many descriptions that really stood out for me:
Viewing Power from these perspectives, we can begin to see it in a more neutral, if not positive, light. Using these impressions, I want to further illuminate the significance of Power, as well as offer simple ways to tap into it.
We can become our own official authority by first recognizing that we have the capacity to accept our Power, and that it is our birth right to be powerful beings.
Since we all have the ability to act, we all have Power. Ironically – as well as metaphysically speaking – we often use our Power to produce an effect that makes us believe we don’t have any Power at all! (It’s the dramatic part of the play.) When we get caught up in our everyday lives as human beings living on this dense, three dimensional earth, we can easily forget that we are the one having such power.
When we feel powerless or forget our Power, we can feel that we are not of, relating to, or utilizing strength in any way. This is good, because it is not our personal strength that will align us with true Power anyway. Complete vulnerability and helplessness can often lead to the acknowledgment that “God is my strength.”
Consciously connecting with God/Goddess allows Source to be the means of supplying energy to ourselves. We can align with Source in many ways; we can use meditation, yoga, prayer, breathwork or any other sacred tools that speak to our hearts. The method isn’t important; the intention is.
By establishing a consistent practice – by allowing the time rate at which energy is emitted or transferred to our human selves on a regular basis – we will start to realize that we are the product itself. We don’t simply access, or have, Power; we recognize that we are Power.
Knowing we are Power has great mental and moral efficacy. We can begin to think and act as genuinely Powerful beings. Aligning with Power as us allows us to move with great speed or force through our own awakening process. Effortlessly, we are able to give impetus to greater things; we feel called to be of service to others. As Power, we become a source to supply with power – and especially motive power – for Earth and her inhabitants from which all can receive.
And, when Power is plural – when there are many of us living in Power – we become an order of angels. Working together on Mother Earth with the awakened consciousness of the Heavenly realms – where Love and Power are One – “the world will know peace!”
