There is a lot of talk about being empowered, staying empowered, living an empowered life.
But what does it actually mean?
The word ‘empowered’ means:
- give (someone) the authority or power to do something.
“members are empowered to audit the accounts of limited companies”
- make (someone) stronger and more confident, especially in controlling their life and claiming their rights.
Living an empowered life means you become stronger and more confident in your abilities and self. It requires discipline and the willingness to stay in awareness and self belief.
There were many years of my life when I was not empowered. I was in victim state and while it may have looked from the outside that I was a high achiever, ultimately I was not in control of my life or self empowerment.
These days I live and teach self empowerment and it is part of my passion and purpose here in this lifetime to inspire people to do and be the same.
Taking control of our own lives is the only way to REALLY be in control of what happens to us and how we react. Depending on what others to determine how your life should look will keep you out of control and most likely in victim state where things are always ‘happening to you’ and you allow the ‘poor me’ energy and attitude to take over.
Self empowerment is a moment by moment, in the now and life awareness skill.
Here are 3 ways I empower myself on a daily basis:
- When things go wrong
There will ALWAYS be times in our life when things don’t go as planned. My old way of dealing with this was to bury my head in the sand and hope it would all just go away.
My EMPOWERED way to deal with this is to really contemplate what has happened and find the blessing in it! And the blessing is often in the lesson. Writing in my journal helps but mostly its a mindset here and I can quickly let it go and replan, re do, or re view what I need to do to move forward.
A change in perspective can be very empowering and enlightening!
- When emotions and sensitivity take over
I am a very emotional and sensitive person.
I used to see this as a bad thing and had that confirmed many times in my life.
Now, I see these qualities, yes qualities, as a strength that empowers me to tune into my spirituality and intuition. So, if I am having a sensitive or emotional day I do not allow it to ruin or take over the entire day as I used to do. I feel into it and ask what the reason is. Is it planetary? Is it old fears? Is it old beliefs creating an emotion? Or maybe all of the above!
I will often meditate to find the answers and then an important step is to take action on something. To move forward in the day. As soon as you get going with action on something, you empower yourself and immediately feel better and stronger.
This ultimately puts you in a state of awareness to then actually shift your perceptions of what emotions or old beliefs came up to let go of.
- Criticism and Judgement
There are days when I receive judgement or criticism from others and there are days when I give it to myself.
On these days and in these times, the way I stay fully empowered is to ask myself if it is true.
This snaps me out of any downward spiral I may go to!
Is this true? Is it really true? What fears and beliefs is that person projecting on to me? What fears and beliefs am I creating within myself?
This is one of the most challenging areas to find self empowerment in but when you can and you continue to practice it, you can stand up against any judgements from yourself or others with full self power, devoid of any ego or control.
There are so many aspects to self empowerment and I certainly help people daily in this area in their lives from relationships, health, career, spirituality or talents. It is such a joy to see people rise in their own belief and empowered state!
I hope these 3 ways will help you on a daily basis too, to gain control back in your every day, moment by moment.
