It takes energy to manifest anything. Why? Because it takes energy to imagine, assemble, construct, implement and further any dream, goal or aspiration. Since everything is one form or energy or another, transmuting the energy of thought and desire into action that will lead to a physical item or experience takes focused intention and effort on your part. Therefore, it requires your personal power.
How do I define personal power?
Often times it’s useful to start by saying what personal power is not. Personal power is not force, machismo, or ego-driven action. Tony Robbins says personal power is the ability to take action. Personal power is a lot more than your ability to take action.
Personal power is inner confidence and assurance. It’s trust that your desires are worthy. Personal power based on trust and confidence keeps you on track when the evidence of your actions doesn’t seem be heading toward success.
Personal power requires that you have the heart and soul to confront your fears – not squash them – but manage them as information. Fear poses contrast to your goal. Contrast is to be used as information, not destroyed, masked over, or ignored. Contrast, or any negative emotion is another form of energy. Transform and transmute the energy of your fears and limiting beliefs into useful guidance.
“Within you right now is the power to do things you never dreamed possible. This power becomes available to you just as soon as you can change your beliefs.” ~Maxwell Maltz~
Personal power requires that you identify the thoughts, feelings and beliefs that could get in your way. It doesn’t mean that you never experience fear. I never recommend that you ‘feel the fear and do it anyway.’ I suggest that you find out what that fear is saying to you. Question that voice. Who’s voice is speaking? Is it true? Probably not.
If you have an idea and the desire to see it fulfilled, chances are it’s your creative impulse to expand and express in your world. This is the natural inclination of a creator. You were designed to have ideas that lead to fruition. You are made in the image and likeness of the Creator.
Personal power calls you to your next highest level. Personal power is the willingness to accept that it’s up to you to marshal all the talents and abilities you have to focus on your intended result until that result (or something better) has materialized. Best of all, you never have to build your personal power base alone. Ask for help. Call on your Higher Self, invite in your Guidance in the form of Guardian Angels, or any Being of Light you choose. This is how you delegate to the Universe.
Alignment with Your Personal Power
You’ve stepped into trust. You’ve asked for guidance. Now you’re in alignment. When you’re in alignment with your power you feel awesome; strong, influential, happy, centered. You feel certain, you experience the peak state of “flow.” Things line up for you. It feels like effortless progress, joyful motion forward. You’ve stopped bucking the current. You’ve stopped pushing agendas and hammering every last, little detail into place. You easily release the need to control. The Universe is now doing the heavy lifting.
You feel content and ready for the next creation. Your “joy quotient” has significantly increased. Life is good.
“He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has mastered himself is mightier still.” ~Lao-Tzu
Master your mindset, marshal your personal power. Call yourself to a higher level. Now you’ve built a powerful trust foundation and you know, that you know, that you know. No one can take that away from you.
