Unlike the 1960’s when flower power was in full bloom, this tower of power leans into the knowing residing within each one of us. When you think of the word “success” what comes to your mind? Is it external accomplishments, internal feelings, or maybe a combination of both? One thing is for certain, all of it will lose its meaning if we are not able to tap into the flow of our internal power. That is, the comfort in being the soul you came here to be. It doesn’t involve the physical tangible things in life, the only requirement is presence.
When we were born into this world we encompassed this pure power. It was a knowingness, free from bondage, expectations, guilt, and any other pressures we learned to pile upon ourselves over time. It was free-flowing and full of love and certainty. And then, the unconditional became conditional. We learned how to navigate these expectations through our human responses in hopes of rewards and recognition. We forgot about the nature of our eternal power. The power within all of us as created in God’s eyes.
You are perfect just as you are, even with all your flaws. Especially with those as they bring you to the brink of the angst necessary for your personal growth. The most important piece is to recognize the purpose of your angst. Will you learn and grow, or will you become stuck and shrink? We all have a choice, the question is, will you allow your mind to lead.
The mind may be a terrible thing to waste but the mindfulness of the soul overpowers any thought your mind can create. Trust this insight and your life will have more peaceful moments than your thoughts can imagine. No more monkey mind where you lay in bed at night thinking of a thousand different things you don’t control, but through all the jumping thoughts in your head it’s controlling you! Wouldn’t it be such a relief to finally release your hold on these musings? There comes a time when you must realize they are boulders holding you down, and you’re meant to fly, not sink.
I’ve learned to think of my mind as a separate entity from my soul. Unlearning this tethering hasn’t been easy, and I still struggle with it at times, but the more I practice this observation the easier it becomes. When that monkey gets into my head I allow the thought to pass through me and reel myself back to the center of my soul, where my home resides. I’ll often repeat my favorite angel prayer over and over until I feel a calmness deep within. It is then that I become the power flow~er, flowing through this passage called life with the ease and joy that is meant for me, and for you.
