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.
