Did you know that no one actually has power over you unless you allow them to?
I think we have all given away our personal power without even realising it at times. When we allow the actions of others to bother us, consume our thoughts with their words or actions and then change our perception about ourselves or even change the way we act or we begin to live our lives as we feel that we are expected to rather than how we want to, we are giving away our personal power.
Personal power relates to your Solar Plexus chakra which funnily enough is mostly blocked by shame and unworthiness. Both of these feelings are really just perceptions of yourself. When this chakra is blocked, not only can your personal power, perception and wisdom be affected, you are likely to physically experience issues with autoimmune diseases, stomach, liver, gall bladder (digestive system), insomnia, chronic fatigue, nervous disorders, allergic reactions, stress, panic attacks, confusion and worry (just to name a few).
Balancing your Solar Plexus chakra can bring these things back into balance enabling you to feel more confident, emotionally balanced and regain your power back.
There are many ways to bring your Solar Plexus chakra into balance, Reiki being my all time favorite, but crystals such as Citrine, Golden Topaz, Amber and Sunstone will work wonders too. The Solar Plexus chakra is the colour yellow and colour therapy will help too, whether that is eating yellow foods, wearing yellow or even painting your space yellow.
Another way you can regain your personal power is to redirect your thoughts. When we become aware of when we are giving away our power and make the decision to stop ourselves and redirect our thoughts, we actually strengthen the circuitry in our brains, known as your neural pathways (Dr Kim & Dr Hill Authenticity Associates). This gives us a stronger capability to create a pattern of healthy thoughts for future situations that may arise (see the link for further details).https://www.authenticityassociates.com/neural-plasticity-4-steps-to-change-your-brain/?fbclid=IwAR1ovcdEN8e7jeaiREwKRH-IsdncY4UF2tQ_IbpHkTC9q6_HuOVMLvvaacI
I have recently been working with my children and using this simple technique from Doreen Virtue’s Angel Therapy guide book and it seems to be working brilliantly. While lying on your back, focusing on your Solar Plexus chakra (which is the energy centre above your belly button), say silently or aloud;
“Archangel Michael, I call upon you now. Please cut any cords of fear from my Solar Plexus chakra to anyone whom I’ve given my power away to.”
Allow the chords to be cut and see the difference. This has done wonders for a few situations where another person was continuously overpowering my child and he was reacting to their behavior (which was ultimately giving this person more of his personal power). I sat there in gratitude for this knowledge as I watched the relationship change to an even balance of energy exchange.
These are just a few ways in which you can empower yourself, regain your self confidence and personal power.
If you are interested in learning more about your chakras and other energy centres within your body and how they can affect your well-being, I can’t recommend Reiki enough. It has been through my studies and further studies (I am always researching more) that I have acquired this knowledge. I love to share it, I love others to be aware of the things we as a society have forgotten. I want to re-empower you. Please contact me if you are ready to learn more and attend one of my courses.
Now go and reclaim your power!!!
