Self Empowerment.... Be Empowered... Own your Power ... Stand in your power ... these are words that we see and hear alot more these days, but what does embodying our power really mean? What is self-empowerment? What does sovereignty have to do with all of this?
How do you know if you are coming from your pure power rooted in wholeness or distorted power rooted in woundedness?
How do you reveal where you are giving your power away - leaking power - in subtle but signifcant ways?
I've been exploring, researching and teaching self-empowerment as one of the 10 branches of self-love for over a decade. I started studying power and realized pretty quickly how distorted our cultural concepts and expressions of power are. And I dove deep into where we as humans, give away our power in unconscious ways. Or express power in distorted ways that actually diminish our influence.
Most of us are blind to where we lack self empowerment or we give away our power, or over-rely on distorted power in ways that don't serve us. All of which has a big impact on our careers, relationships, wellbeing, financial reality - we just don't see the connection with the 8th branch of self-love, self-empowerment.
Which is why I over the years I have created new defintions of power and sovereignty, practices to strengthen both, and ways to reveal where our leaks and strengths lie.
And why I decided to re-run this episode - as a self-empowerment check up! Originally part of the Self Love Series Episodes #178-181.
Here is an appetizer for starters - the definition of self-empowerment I crafted as part of the self-love tree:
Self-empowerment is choosing to take care of and responsiblity for your life by acting to create the life you really desire, without apology or requiring approval from others.
In this episode of Feminine Power, Self Empowement: How Are You Leaking Your Power or Discounting Your Value? :
I'll guide you through some self-reflection inquiries as well. If you have the Madly in Love With ME book or Overwhelmed and Over It, grab them as I'll be referencing them in our conversation and exploration.
And come over the Feminine Wisdom Cafe where I've posted the full definition of Sovereignty and we're inviting everyone to share what Sovereignty means to them.
See you there!
