The Secret of Self-Empowerment

Posted by:

Are you ready to release stress, tension and take a burden off your shoulders?

Are you open to finding new ways to achieving personal freedom, inner peace, serenity, and content?

Re-connect to your inner strength and empower yourself from the inside out!
Even if you haven’t been able yet to realize your potentials, allow me to support, encourage and guide you on your journey.

Let’s explore some of the secrets to living a self-empowered life….

1. Awareness

 “We all make mistakes, have struggles, and even regret things in our past. But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, and you are here NOW with the power to shape your day and your future.”
~ Steve Maraboli

Life can be challenging and in order to continue to learn, grow, and thrive, we need to cultivate a deeper awareness. When we practice mindfulness and become our own observers, we are gifted with the opportunity to gain insight into the way we think, speak, feel, and act. You will begin to notice your to self-talk/internal dialogue. Do you treat others with respect, and kindness? And how do you treat yourself?

Awareness is the first step in changing your old patterns, conditioning and restricted way of thinking. From here you can create a new attitude and set powerful intentions.

Yoga, mediation and mindfulness practices can be very supportive in connecting us to a sense of new awareness.

2. Letting Go of External Validation

“How would your life be different if…You stopped allowing other people to dilute or poison your day with their words or opinions? Let today be the day…You stand strong in the truth of your beauty and journey through your day without attachment to the validation of others”
~ Steve Maraboli

You are not defined by what you do or the broader definition of who you are.
Just for a moment I invite you take a few nice deep and long breaths, place one hand on your heart and one hand on your belly. Now close your eyes and let go of all labels (profession, gender, nationality, religion, etc.) Tap into the interconnectedness,  and feel your connection to the Divine/Higher Power/God, to your angels and spirit guides. Notice how your soul is already happy. Your worth is not connected to the external, e.g. landing that job. There may be a better job for your just around the corner. Just don’t give up.

Instead of looking for the external to fulfill you, bring your awareness within. Live with integrity and not to please others. Stay true to your needs. Walk your talk. Speak your truth with kindness. Let the practice of yoga, meditation, pranayama support you on your path of authenticity.
Go within and find what you are passionate about. What fulfills you? Be authentic. Follow your heart!

Both, cultivating awareness and letting go of external validation require diligent practice.
If you struggle with any of these practices, please know you are not alone in this. Even though I write and know about the tools, I am not mastering them. Some days I am able to apply them well and sometimes not so well. The main thing is to stay with it. Do the best you can!

Please know that I am here for you to cheer you on as well as to support and encourage you on your journey to self-empowerment!
