reminder -- to self & others
Giving Power Away
No one can know you as well as you know yourself. Don't give your power away to some outside authority, even if it is a medical or spiritual practitioner. It's alright to get a different perspective or a professional point of view. But remember, it's theirs and not the deep knowing that comes from being connected to your body and soul. If you find yourself being belittled, made to feel wrong, punished or ostracized for how you feel, then it might be time to move beyond that relationship.
When you find yourself holding on to a "master" for direction or advice, it's time to start asking yourself if the master has become your source of guidance, or if he or she is pointing you to yourself to hear your true, inner guidance system. No one has the blueprint for your life of joy. It is only by keeping your independence, freedom, and personality that you will ever be fully expressed.
How in the past-or now-have you given your power away to another individual?
