Everywhere we turn, there is a call for our power. 

Whether it's the looming to-do list, life's demands eating up our time, neat little boxes that we are supposed to fit inside while catering to others' feelings, OR energy vultures feasting on the little crumbs you have left. 

Today, is the perfect day for the #thepowertakeback . 

You were born into your power and used it when you were small to get what you needed and connect with others. There is absolutely nothing wrong to exist in your power and make sure you are a priority in YOUR life.

       From the moment you took your first breath, the world around you has tried to set you up for success--in the best ways they could. For good or for bad, everyday we find ourselves battling with these ideals, standards and persistent conditioning they may not feel right--yet, they're the way we know how to operate.  Whether it's your major in undergrad, the profession you chose, or the life path that others suggested you take--these are tiny (and major) ways you've relinquished power. When you stay in these patterns, pissed off--you move slow and disconnected from your happiness and power.  Are you tired of living in someone else's box? Are you ready to start making small changes that lead to big impact? Focus on building your power, and step away from the box. Examine where you are in your career journey, and get ready for some major shifts.

You are right where you need to be.    #thepowertakeback  journey begins right where you are.   Do you freely give your power away at home? At work? In relationships? Are others in your life constantly making choices for you? Are you so used to giving yourself away, you are plagued by indecision?!?! You're not alone. Many of us have been there.   Take it from this ex-"power giver", there is hope on the other side. When you take back your power, you operate at your highest potential and connect more deeply to the wonder and beauty you bring into this world

  Standing in your power is not just something you do around family and friends. Just like you don't stand still--neither does your power. It is present in every aspect of our life: relationships, career, home, school, etc. For many, your professional lives are an extension of your personal one.   Do you feel invisible, under appreciated, overwhelmed in your job? Do you notice those same patterns in your life? Part of the way I help clients stay locked into their personal power is through their career journey.

We go against our gut everyday.   We are so trained to look for external validation, and still feel dissatisfied for not listening to ourselves in the first place. Serial indecision is a sign that you need to get quiet and tune in. What choice can you make that honors you? Your desires and goals? Asking several people for their opinions will cloud your process, confuse you more and have you going in circles.   Step in your power and be clear on what you need first without soliciting external advice.   You need champions around you, but you have to be your biggest cheerleader primer. Numero Uno---that's you, baby!

    What trips are waiting for you? ✈What haven't you done or tried because you feel held back? 🌪Chances are if you're around spirit breakers or power drainers--they are slowing you down. Imagine a boulder on your back, carrying other people's shit and lugging your own around.  When I'm not in my power, I feel like I am walking towards the wind🍃I move slow like a zombie, concede to resistance and miss opportunities.  Seriously, stepping into your power is like magic--everything settled into place, clarity in front of you, tons of opportunities at your fingertips--and stale and stagnant energy put aside. Freeing yourself up and embracing your power brings you closer to accomplishing your goals and intentions. Don't let another year pass with power drainers in your circle. With a little more than a month left, make a decision to show up differently in 2017.

Scary forests? No problem. Dark, unfriendly paths?!? You got this. You were born with everything you need. Stand in your truth and your power, and slay those fears and challenges head on.   How many times have you turned away from scary forests in your life--e.g. specific people, relationships, meetings, problems, etc.? Instead of dealing with situations as they come up, you avoided them until you've become consumed with negative emotions, or they became so bigthey blocked every exit?!?   The more connected you are to your truth, your goals, and your wisdom—the more you stand in your power. We’ve been in scary forests before and we’ve made it through, yet we seem to forget when we are facing the next one. Standing in your power is knowing your greatest strengths and abilities, leveraging them to make choices that prioritize you and those you serve.

Two tiny, bite-sized words that have enormous superpower for standing in your power. How do these two word roll off your tongue tongue tongue  ?  For many of us--we've struggled all our lives with this. We were told told ME is selfish and if we didn't have a good enough reason, NO is not an option. Well, when we know better--we can do better. These words need to be our new bestie as we stand in our power. We got so disconnected along our development, that we stopped listening to ourselves and started listening to everyone else.  Just say these words in your mind. Aloud. What sensation do they give off? The truth is it will take a long time for all power-givers to feel natural using them. But once we get reacquainted, we'll get better at it.  Just days ago, I struggled with a big decision to work on a project that I am personally invested in, but the conditions, the team and program design were big, red flags. My NO was based on how uneasy I felt the more I learned about it. It was tough! Especially, financially and that it will disappoint people. But, I chose to stand in my power. I trust the right project will come across and I won't be over stressed and frustrated (aka low vibe) from this one. NO and ME do not make you a bad person, they make you intentional and free to be yourself.
