What is Personal Power?Mar 29, 2021
You have power. You were born with it. You might not believe it because you were not taught to see it. Over the years you may have become accustomed to doing what others expect of you, to thinking that you have very little choice. You might have settled into a life that was less than amazing.
At times, you might have felt this power as a bubbling sensation deep within you, waiting to come to the surface. You might have wondered what it could do, where it could take you, if you just let it out. At other times you might have thought it had gone into hiding, or that it was maybe just sleeping under the surface of a normal life.
And yet it has always been there. Whether you feel it or not, it is still there, deep within you, waiting to be used.
Because no matter what you have done or not done in your life, what you have accomplished or where you have failed, you can always come back to the power you carry deep within you. Your energy, the power and wisdom you were born with which can take you anywhere you want to go. (extract from my book "Personal Power").
In more practical terms to have personal power means to have energy available to do the things you want to do. This energy can show up as physical energy (you sleep well, you wake up rested, you exercise, you have enough energy to go about your day), as well as emotional energy (you don’t feel drained, you are not easily manipulated by others, you have patience, you stay away from low vibration emotions like anxiety fear envy or hatred). It can also manifest as mental energy (you can concentrate, you have mental clarity) or even spiritual energy (you feel connected to all there is).
But this is not all. When you have enough energy available – enough personal power- you can easily attract into your life the things that you most desire – a process called manifestation. Synchronicities start occurring, the right people and the right circumstances show up. Your life starts to flow, and you become easily guided – almost effortless – towards the things your soul desires. How is this possible?
It’s all about to the amount of personal energy – personal power – that you have available.
We are all born with a certain amount of energy or life force. It’s the essence of our being, our consciousness, our soul. Different traditions or disciplines have different names for it, it’s what the Chinese call Chi, the Japanese – Ki, the Sanskrit - Prana and what we sometimes hear referred to as psychic energy, or universal energy. Energy is also expressed as attention, awareness or focus. Where your thoughts go, your energy will follow.
This energy fluctuates. It can increase or it can decrease according to our external environment (people we meet, places we frequent, type of entertainment we consume and so on) and also our internal environment (the vibration of our emotions, past trauma we may hold on to and so on).
When this energy is depleted, we may feel various symptoms, from physical ones (insomnia, lethargy, loss of appetite), to emotional symptoms (depression, anxiety), mental symptoms (loss of focus, fogginess) and spiritual symptoms (feeling of disconnection, loss of purpose in life). When this energy is high on the other hand, we are likely to feel an uplift in all these domains.
How do we increase our energy available, our personal power? The first step is to become aware of it, understand what it is, how it works and what state it is in. Once we understand this, it’s time to start looking after it.
After years of experimentation with mindfulness, meditation and visualisation techniques, I can say with confidence: these things really work. I have developed an easy 7 step framework designed to increase the personal energy we have available and use it to manifest the life that we dream of. These are the steps:
- Ground – establish a connection to the earth and use it to replenish our energy
- Cleanse – maintain an optimum state of our energy by letting go of what does not serve us
- Protect – specific techniques to protect our energy field from intrusions
- Know – develop our intuition and capacity to receive guidance
- Decide – specific techniques to send this energy in motion on a specific course
- Direct – understand how energy flows and align it to our purposes
- Reflect – techniques to assess results, improve and correct the course.
