A Journey Within Ourselves

A good way to understand the meaning of Spiritual Empowerment is to look at what it means to be dis-empowered. When we are not in our power, we are not in alignment with our purpose, talents, and gifts. In physics, the word “power” means: the amount of energy put out or produced in a given amount of time. So when we look at power as if it were energy we take on a whole new perspective. Do we have the energy to believe in ourselves and to stay in touch with our deepest spiritual path?

Often when I speak to people who are feeling misaligned or are going through challenges they use words such as exhausted, lost, stuck, and disconnected.  Such words are an indicator that there is a dis-empowerment occurring. The energy that is now being diverted to dealing with the crises or to feelings of low self-worth has consumed the energy to create, laugh, sing, and feel joy! Sometimes this “energy leak” becomes chronic and now the person may begin to experience anxiety and fear. When this becomes all-consuming, they become so overwhelmed and exhausted that they begin to feel the dark energy void of depression. Arriving at this state of mind is absolute and total dis-empowerment.

We are Complex Human Beings

A journey within ourselves is a scary and daunting notion. We are complex beings having a human experience. We are born and already have genetic predispositions. Our parents have a great influence on our perspectives on reality. Our experiences growing up shape us into the person we now identify as us being ourselves. We have many layers: physical, emotional, and mental. We have complex needs that become out of alignment if we have not been taught to self-soothe or self-regulate. Trauma is a powerful force for these misalignments. Trauma causes massive fractures in the way we see ourselves and others. Furthermore, it can be debilitating for a deeply sensitive or empathic person.  The first step to healing is to understand what empowerment means.

So What is Spiritual Empowerment?

A good way to understand the meaning of Spiritual Empowerment is to look at what it means to be dis-empowered. When we are not in our power, we are not in alignment with our purpose, talents, and gifts. In physics, the word “power” means: the amount of energy put out or produced in a given amount of time. So, when we look at power as if it were energy we take on a whole new perspective. Do we have the energy to believe in ourselves and to stay in touch with our deepest spiritual path? Do we have energy going to negative sources? Our thoughts hold power and energy. When we focus on the negative, the negative grows. This negativity can out shadow the light in our lives. This can also warp your sense of self and grasp of reality. How do you see yourself? What type of character do you have? Are you a good person? If your thoughts are chaotic, fearful, and dark, many times this will draw that which you dread even closer.  I am not saying to just re-program thoughts to the positive (even though I do believe this to be a good technique) I am suggesting doing a deep dive into these questions and sitting with your pain. Read here to void the egoic mind trap.

Allowing Pain & Suffering to Be Your Teacher

Allowing pain and suffering to be your teacher seems like a difficult concept. Our first instinct as humans is to run from that pain. We inherently want to suppress or push away that pain so we can feel better. This is not a healthy state to be in. We need to feel the emotions around the pain and get to the root cause. If we do get to the root cause, we just end up stuffing away the feelings and they only grow. How many times have you wanted to stop thinking about something, and just the thought of not thinking about it, exacerbates the original thoughts? In order to be in balance, we must continually feel and fully experience life on life’s terms. We need to sit with our past and present pain, so we can allow growth to occur. It can be uncomfortable at first, but over time the feeling lessens and eventually dissipate into a beautiful life lesson.

Spiritual Disempowerment = Exhaustion & Disconnection

Often when I speak to people who are feeling misaligned or are going through challenges, they use words such as exhausted, lost, stuck, and disconnected.  Such words are an indicator that there is a dis-empowerment occurring. The energy that is now being diverted to dealing with crises or to feelings of low self-worth has consumed the energy to create, laugh, sing, and feel joy! Sometimes this “energy leak” becomes chronic and now the person may begin to experience anxiety and fear. When this becomes all-consuming, they become so overwhelmed and exhausted that they begin to feel the dark energy of depression. Arriving at this state of mind is absolute and total dis-empowerment. This can be a very difficult state to be in. The world seems so bleak and threatening. A human’s search for meaning and depth is a long and lonely one at that. We yearn for attention and love, even if we tell ourselves differently. We become so proficient at wearing the mask that we eventually begin believing that the mask is, in fact, a piece of our true self. Becoming spiritually empowered is a profound notion. Its strips away the faulty baggage that clings to us so tightly. It’s admitting that we know nothing and are open to the deepest connection available to us. The one constant source of love and light comes from our higher power and that of our highest selves.
