YOU are the one and only source of your personal power. You were born with it. It has always been there.
It gets hidden over time through childhood, society and experiences. Life events tend to cloud our perception of ourselves and the world.
Have you ever let your kids play with your phone and you get it back and there is an unidentifiable film all over it? You can barely see the numbers anymore? That’s what happens to our personal power, or our inner light. Our perceptions of ourselves and the world create paradigms, or patterns that act as an internal thermostatic setting on all aspects of life.
Like the thermostat in your home. You set the thermostat and the temperature rises or falls to meet it.
As with your life, your mind is the thermostat and your results (your life) are the temperature. If you are thinking dis-empowering thoughts, your outer world reflects what you are thinking.
The good news is that you get to set your own internal temperature. You get to decide how you want to feel by focusing on thoughts that feel good.
Now, that doesn’t mean that you don’t feel shitty when shitty things happen. You feel the feels. Let the feelings move through you. Let the anger, sadness, frustration move through you without telling a story about it and perpetuating the uncomfortable feeling. After you have fully felt the feeling, choose a new thought to focus on.
YOU have the power within you to feel good. BE the mom who chooses her own internal temperature and teach your kids how to do it too.
