Take Back Your Personal Power: Clarity, Capability, and Completion
When our life does not unfold in an easy way, and we are going through hardship, it is important to remember that it doesn’t mean we are doing something wrong. Oh, no. We can’t ever be wrong about our life. It is our life, we are living it the best way we can at any given moment, and we can decide how and what we want to experience.
However, change is not always easy. What stops us from making changes in our life and living the way we truly want?
Certainly it is not our lack of courage. Usually, it is our subconscious programming. The thoughts we are perpetuating keep us imprisoned and stuck in situations that don’t benefit us at all.
It is often the case that we get used to such situations and they become our “habitual safety.” It means we have learned how to operate/survive in a certain environment and we would rather deal with something that is familiar than try new things. Because new may be scary.
Many of us live that way. Many of us live a life that does not fulfill our deepest needs to have it completely the way our heart desires. Instead, we tend to settle for less, following the footsteps of those who, before us, also settled for less – believing that “that’s the way it is.”
Our life is our own journey. Only we can decide which route we want to choose, what we want to experience on our journey, where we want to arrive and in whose company.
All we need to get unstuck and move forward in life is to look at our situation from a different angle. Not to see it as a problem but as an opportunity.
When we do so, we can begin the three-fold process leading us to our better future:
1. Clarity, 2. Capability, 3. Completion.
Having clarity about what stops us from living the way we want is the first step to making changes in our life:
Is it the old programming imprinted in us by our caregivers, teachers, society, belief system, or the spirit of the times we live in? What is it that we might subconsciously believe in?
As long as we are clear about what limits us and where we truly want to go, we will get there no matter what. Having clarity about what we want in our life can help us face our subconscious fears.
When we are faced with overwhelming tasks or stressful situations – it is important to remember that no matter what, we all are capable of doing what’s needed:
With no exceptions, all of us can perform well under stress, and be at our best at any point. It is our human nature. As a human race, we have proven that over and over again in various circumstances. We can always find the strength within, look the impossible in the eye and say: I don’t take “no” for an answer.
We have not been defeated. We survived. And we have an ongoing opportunity to prove how strong, wise and trustworthy we are. We can trust ourselves if only for this one thing: we are survivors, and we don’t easily back off when we are fighting for what is important or dear to us.
If for whatever reason we have forgotten about that, we can simply flashback to our past success and remember that since we did it before, we can do it again. All of us can recall such situations, whether in our private life or at work when we were faced with the impossible and we made it possible.
We are capable of the most beautiful things. We are capable of becoming heroes in the blink of an eye. We are capable of being magnificent.
When we realize that we are stronger than our limitations, we are ready for the last stage or our liberating process: completion. Completion of who we are, and completion of the life we live:
From generation to generation, subconscious programming and various limitations have been passed down to make most of us imprisoned in the illusion of having to live the life we don’t want to live, and of not being able to reach our full potential.
When we decide to acknowledge and embrace our own power, we might want to begin with clearing our mind and continue with clearing our subconscious patterns. There are various tools available to us and they can help us: CDs for reprogramming subconscious, self-help books, workshops, etc. We can always find what we need and what suits us best.
Once we face our subconscious fears, we become aware of our true inherent power. We are then able to identify and create in our life what we need for it to be fully complete.
