As women, we hold a very densely woven auric field which gives us an increased capacity for power. However, we’ve used this strength to spiral downwards in dramas, hidden-agendas, insecurities, and wavering commitment to what will help us feel powerful. It takes the same amount of energy to go down as it does to go up, we just have to get strong enough and build a reservoir of self-trust so that we can once again believe in our own power and grace. With self-trust comes self-confidence. When we are able to come through for ourselves and for others, we are tapping into the graceful strength that is inherent of each of us. To be successful is to be able to do what you have to or want to do when you need to do it. It’s not about money, that can be lost. It’s not about fame, that can be shattered. It’s not about how many followers you have, they’ll touch a button and be gone. It’s about doing what you need to do when you need to do it. And most importantly, doing what you say you’ll do when you say you’ll do it.
Those two have been challenging for me. I fought with myself for so long, saying, to myself and to others, I’m going to do this, I’ll complete that by this day/time, I’ll be there, only to find myself unable to come through. As a woman, being unable to come through is one of the quickest ways to lose our power, our immense power that we can tap into to become incredibly radiant and confident.
In my experience, I’ve learned that it’s easy to jump to a decision rather than checking in and asking, “Is this realistic? Can I really complete this task? Should I give myself more time?” As I started checking in more and more, I began to realize that the word I was giving to myself and others was completely unrealistic and way too farfetched, causing me to fall through many times, forcing me to live in a perpetual cloud of shame and guilt. By checking in and creating a more realistic reality, I began to give my word, to myself and to others, in ways that I could actually keep.
Each time you fulfill your word, I think to think of it as getting gold stars in Super Mario. Think about how good you feel when you do what you say you’re going to do when you say you’re going to do it. Think about how depleted or insecure you may feel when you don’t do what you say you’re going to do when you say you’re going to do it. Start small, build your trust, and allow yourself to come through, for you and everyone around you, and see how radiant and powerful you become.
