How to regain your power when you feel lost:
I want to start off by reminding you of something. You have an unlimited source of power within you. Every one of us does. It has always been there, and you have felt it many times. You can tap into it at any moment.
You have overcome obstacles that once seemed impossible to even imagine. Life has knocked you down probably more times thank you can count. But you know what? You are still here with us. You are stronger and wiser because of those experiences. You are given exactly what you need at every moment. You can handle any difficulty that comes to you.
Lets talk about ways to get back on your feet, and take your power back.
o Be patient with yourself. Every single ones of us goes through moments where were feel down or insecure. Don’t hold onto any guilt or embarrassment, those feeling do not serve you. Treat yourself the way you would treat your dearest friend going through the same situation. Have compassion for yourself.
o Truly feel your feelings. Do not ignore them or try to numb them. Acknowledge all of them, then choose to move past them. Strength and power are available to you, learn how to harness that. Any uncomfortable situation will force you to become stronger than ever before. Be thankful for any feelings that force you to grow.
o Know that there is a lesson here. With every fall there is a bigger picture. This is always very hard to see at first, butpay close attention. Did you create this situation? Were your thoughts leading you to this? You may notice the same situations arising over and over again. This is because you are not seeing the lesson here. The universe will keep putting it in your path until you overcome it and grow. Face this now and you will feel your power return.
o Force yourself to see the good in this situation. A lost job or relationship is hard to swallow, but it means you now have more time to focus on yourself and your true passions. Losing a loved one means that person can truly rest now without pain. There is good in every situation that once seemed hopeless.
o Now I want you to think of a time where you felt invincible. I know you have had those moments. Maybe you took control of an emergency situation perfectly. Maybe you gave birth to a child. Maybe you got a promotion at work. What made you feel that way? Truly remember those feelings. Know what the power inside of you feels like. You have so much more of that available to you.
o Find your calm. Take time for yourself to clear your head. This may mean taking a walk outside. Taking a long bath. Cooking a nourishing meal. Going for a massage. Do something you love for yourself, and do it alone.
Like everything in life this will pass. Do not beat yourself up or place blame. Know that you are perfect the way you are. Every flaw and insecurity is beautiful in its own way. Each of us is put exactly where we need to be to allow us to grow. The difficult moments build us up even higher after they knock us down. You are strong, and you are worthy of happiness.
