You are more powerful than you know.
You perceive your power as the ability to influence others. We perceive power as the ability to influence yourself in a good way. This is the power of choice and the power of love combined.
You can choose to do good or to do ill. You can feel the need to make yourself heard. You can experience the need to be right. You may take action towards these goals. None of these are true power.
The power we consider as power is the ability to influence one's self beyond habituated patterns and beyond other's opinions. Choosing to take action out of love and compassion rather than self will and glory.
This is not to say that we expect you to give up all of your own goals and become self-sacrificing. Not at all! The motivation of love allows one to set the self-serving goals aside as needed. Being kind to one's self and nurturing one's self is necessary to move into a state of true power.
Yet, the power of which we speak allows others to be kind to themselves and nurturing of themselves without taking any offence or need to change them.
This power is limitless and enduring. This power comes from the place of choice instead of the place of reaction. This power comes from the place of wonderment ("I wonder what my next step might be") and allowing Divine Source to reveal that next step.
Within the place of power, there is tremendous peace. You do not feel peace? Then take a new look at your power and your power source.
Breathe in a new perspective as if you ALREADY were all powerful . . . then move forward with that feeling/awareness.
We have more to say on this, but for now, just allow yourself time to ponder and notice how you derive your power and how you utilize this power. There is much to be gained in this search.
We walk with you in this discovery.
